Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple EDP

January 28, 2015
Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple

My very first Glossybox contained an adorable mini-sized bottle of Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple, and I’ve been lusting after a bottle ever since. Luckily Amie is amazing when it comes to picking me presents directly from my cosmetics wish list and she very kindly bought me a bottle for Christmas. As you can see I’ve already made a tiny dent in it, and honestly I’m such a fan of this fragrance I can’t see it lasting long at all! So…

Christian Lacroix Ambre for her EDP

September 28, 2014
Christian Lacrois Ambre EDP Avon

I’ve become quite a fan of Avon perfumes this past year but the new collaboration fragrance with Christian Lacroix has set my heart all a flutter.  The official blub reeled me in right away – Christian Lacroix Ambre is announced as the scent that awakens the senses and imagination, intense, sensual and desirable, belonging to the category of chypre-gourmand fragrances. It opens with mandarin oil and juicy berries, leading to the heart of absolute rose, jasmine and rosewood and the…

The Body Shop Early Harvest Raspberry Eau De Toilette Review

August 26, 2014
raspberry-eau-de-toilette-tbs

A while ago now I picked up the Early Harvest Raspberry Eau De Toilette from The Body Shop. After being introduced to the Vanilla body mist by Gem, I’ve been a huge fan of their fragrances and spray’s ever since. They are so versatile and perfect for any occasion. When I ordered the 30ml sized bottle, I wasn’t expecting it to be so small, but actually I’m more than happy with it’s hand bag friendly size since it means I can…

Lady Gaga Fame EDP Review

May 28, 2014
Lady Gaga Fame EDP

  I’ve got a secret to confess. I love Lady Gaga. I really disliked her at first, but one day after some intoxicating substances my drummer decided to convince me of her merit and somewhere along the line of that night I became a Gaga convert. I had absolutely zero interest in this perfume before that day, but recently it’s been skirting higher and higher up my wishlist till I saw it on offer for only £10.00 in Superdrug and…

Avon Pur Blanca EDT Perfume Set Review

April 17, 2014
Avon Pur Blanca

  When it comes to perfume I’m usually drawn to the more outspoken and sweet fragrances, and especially those with bright and beautiful bottles. Pur Blanca goes against everything I would normally choose; it’s clean light and simple and the bottle is very plain. Still somehow I’ve come to be quite fond of Pur Blanca and have made a sizeable dent in it already! I’d agree with the official description of  “A delicate blend of pure white freesia and ylang…

Ghost Enchanted Bloom EDT Review

April 1, 2014
IMG_8634

  This gorgeous perfume has grown on me so quickly to become my absolute favourite daytime scent. I find it very fresh, feminine and  floral without being too sugary sweet. The bottle is simple but very pretty with etched flowers, but is it a good or bad thing that I like how slim it is because I’m running out of space on my perfume storage? The official description lists “Top notes of violet leaf, bergamot and cranberry, leading to the…

New Avon perfumes 2014 – “Our Story For Her” and “Femme”

February 2, 2014
Avon Our Story for her and Femme perfume

  Avon seem to have a new perfume launch every campaign at the moment, but these two are my favourite picks of the bunch by a mile! I find that Avon fragrance can be a bit hit and miss, especially with the older scents that seem to all smell very similar to me. The newer lines seem to be vastly improved on the classics though, and if you’re looking for purse friendly fragrance with some personality I think you’d do…

The Magazine Fragrance, have they finally got it?

November 18, 2013

I’ts not all doom and gloom in the Magazine department, (despite my epic ramblings at Marie Claire) since Gem and I rely heavily on these for new releases of cosmetics and shiny samples for bargainous prices, I find myself getting through an awful lot of them. Remember the old days of Mags, when there was a “scratch and sniff” page, or you lifted the flap and were encouraged to smell? Only to find that by the time you had got…

Avon Ultra Sexy EDT

October 20, 2013
Avon Ultra Sexy EDT

I’ll admit it was the burlesque-ey boudoir design that drew me in being the shallow creature that I am, but the fragrance certainly lived up to it’s gorgeous bottle. Described as “The sexiest fragrance you will ever wear” with “fruity and tempting accords of passion fruit, pear and bergamot. Magnolia in the heart is infused with peach and peony. The base includes golden amber, musk and sweet woods.” It is very light at first with a definite fruity aroma, but…
