Perfume Of The Day – Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum

Perfume Of The Day – Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum

You may have guessed by now that I’m a bit obsessed with the Fleur de Figuier fragrance from French brand Roger & Gallet, this is the fourth product in the range that I’ve reviewed now! I first fell in love with the fruity scent last year when I tried out the Huile Gourmande (it was one of my favourite products of 2014) and now I’m using the Eau de Parfum*. The Fleur de Figuier range encompasses both the fruit and the flower of the fig, plus mandarin flowers. It’s quite fruity and reminds me a bit of The Body Shop’s 1980s favourite fragrance Dewberry, I could just sit and sniff it all day! Being an Eau de Parfum this product is much stronger than the Eau Fraiche that I reviewed a few weeks ago, as this one contains more alcohol. The Eau de Parfum also smells slightly more floral and less fruity than the other products in the range. The angular glass bottle looks a bit more old fashioned than...

Perfume of the day – Lancome Tresor Eau de Parfum

Perfume of the day – Lancome Tresor Eau de Parfum

This little mini Tresor Eau de Parfum came in my Selfridges Beauty Advent Calendar and I just think the little bottle looks so cute! The bottle has been designed to look like a precious treasure, and ‘Tresor’ actually means ‘treasure’ in French. The fragrance is both floral and fruity, with a sort of sweet powdery note to it. Lancome say, ‘Its luminous fragrance gives a refined and radiant aura to the woman who wears it.’ Tresor is actually a bit too sweet for me, I prefer more mysterious fragrances like Thierry Mugler’s Alien, but the little bottle does look so sweet sat on my dressing table! I might have to give it away though to someone who will love the fragrance. Prices for Lancome Tresor start from £39.50 at The Perfume Shop, for a 30ml Eau de Parfum gift set. I will be reviewing some more of the dinky products that have come out of my Selfridges Advent Calendar soon. If you enjoyed reading this blog post why not...

Perfume of the day – Elizabeth Arden Untold Eau de Parfum

Perfume of the day – Elizabeth Arden Untold Eau de Parfum

I got this miniature bottle of Elizabeth Arden’s Untold Eau de Parfum in my September Glossybox. Although it’s only a small sample I love the fact that it’s in a proper little glass bottle that was nestled inside a pretty box, not in one of those little glass phials. The design of the bottle is really pretty too, it really catches the light and would look nice on any dressing table. Elizabeth Arden describe Untold as ‘a luxurious and modern rendition of a sensuous floral composition’, for ‘the multi-faceted modern woman’. I would describe Untold as warm and gentle, it is floral without being too sweet and has a bit of mystery about it. Untold is probably not a fragrance I would have rushed out and bought if I had smelled it on someone else, but I do really like it and I will definitely be wearing it this Autumn. A full size bottle of Untold Eau de Parfum from Elizabeth Arden starts at £35 for 30ml, available from...

Perfume of the day – Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

Perfume of the day – Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Eau de Parfum

I went shopping in York last week and treated myself to Flowerbomb by Viktor & Rolf. It’s the perfume that I always spritz at the duty-free shop in the airport when I am going away, so the scent reminds me of excitement, anticipation…. and aeroplanes. Viktor & Rolf describe this opulent fragrance, ‘… a moodlifting, positive profusion of flowers… escapism, in a bottle…’ It is a floral perfume, centered mainly around the scents of freesia, Centifolia rose and jasmine, but has a subtle backdrop of patchouli which is why I think I like it as I don’t usually go for floral fragrances. It reminds me a bit of Thierry Mugler’s Alien perfume which I wear a lot (read my review of that here) so if you love Alien then you’ll love Flowerbomb too. I love the bottle too, it looks like a multi-faceted diamond, and the pretty pink box sets it all off nicely. Prices start at £49 for a 30ml bottle of Flowerbomb, from Debenhams. Or keep an...
