A new romantic fragrance from Tory Burch, Love Relentlessly, was inspired by the love story of her parents. It’s a feminine fragrance, and compared to the other fragrances in the Tory Burch line, it’s my favorite.
Housed in a beautiful bottle, the blush pink Love Relentlessly has a classic feel and opens with sparkling pink pepper, rose and a slightly fruity note. It warms and gets prettier the longer it wears, with dry down notes of patchouli and ambertonic. Usually those base notes would be overpowering on me, but I don’t find that with this fragrance at all. It dries down to a very soft, almost-powdery scent.
When you open the inside cover of the box, you see the backstory. Tory Burch’s father wrote a note to her mother, which he ran in the newspaper and asked ‘If I told you that I love you, would you hold it against me?’ and signed the note “Love, Relentless.” That really moved the sentimentalist in me and reminded me of my own mom and dad, and the amazing relationship that they had. Maybe that’s another reason Love Relentlessly really resonates with me.
Love Relentlessly Eau de Parfum is available now; you can find it in department stores including Bloomingdales, and also on ToryBurch.com. If you’re looking to start the new year with a modern fragrance, I think you should try this one!
