Lovely lily

To feel oh so pretty today, spritz yourself with the delightfully affordable Kimmi Fragrances Lily EDT.

Alexandra Monet has created a very girly floral note sublimating the rose and peony with a hint of edible facet. A regressive and almost magical universe, where fruity notes play the card of freshness, sparkle and juiciness.KimmiPerfumeLily
