Review: Tory Burch Love Relentlessly
It’s rare you’ll read a fragrance review written by me that talks about the story behind the scent. After all, don’t we just want to know what it smells like? If you should try it? Or maybe even buy it? In this instance, I really enjoyed the story behind Tory Burch’s latest fragrance ‘Love Relentlessly’ so I’m going to share a brief snapshot with you, and if you love ‘love’ make sure you keep reading.
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly was inspired by the love affair of the designer’s parents. After they had met, Tory’s father wrote notes to her mother, which he ran in the “wanted” section of the local newspaper. Each letter her father wrote he would sign off as “Love Relentlessly”. In 1961 the couple eloped in picturesque Old Sturbridge Village, Massachusetts, and in her mother’s word, every single day after that, they were, ‘Mad for each other’. Their passion for life and each other is an inspiration to Tory in the collections she designs and now in this romantic new scent.
