Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP

Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP

To celebrate the release of the new Ralph Lauren Polo Blue EDP* you will be bale to get your hands on this classic Ralph Lauren Weekend Duffle Bag. The bag is very The Hamptons, it comes in blue and white with the iconic Polo logo.

The scent itself is to me classic Ralph Lauren, my husband already wears the Polo Red but I think Polo Blue is a lighter more daytime scent. It comes in a beautiful cobalt blue glass bottle with luxurious silver detailing and is shaped like a cool hip flask. For me its the perfect masculine Summer scent.

Top Notes: Bergamot, Cardamom, Marine Accord
Heart Notes: Blue Orris Accord, Basil Verbena, Clary Sage
Base Notes: Vetiver, Suede Accord, Patchouli, Vibrant Woods

So its a little spicy at first but it settles down to be very fresh, laid back and Summery. Not at all overpowering or synthetic. Its the ideal Father’s Day gift and I think it would appeal to men of all ages.

I don’t like to have too many perfumes on the go at once, I tend to reach for the same ones and always repurchase these four in particular.

The Body Shop Italian Fig Body Spray

The Body Shop Italian Summer Fig

I adore anything fig scented so when The Body Shop released this collection (last year, I think), I knew I would love it. I have the Fragrance Mist and although the scent doesn’t last as long as a perfume its still a lovely option. I wear this all the time, and its my go to daytime scent. Its sweet but still has that intense, rich juicy fig scent. I used to live in Cyprus and this scent reminds me so much of my childhood. The packaging is pretty too & for an affordable product it feels luxurious and looks lovely on your dresser.

Chloe Love Story Perfume

Chloé Love Story

This is such a lovely girly scent and the bottle is just gorgeous too. This perfume is quite fruity, fresh and I think the perfect Spring scent. Its smells good all day but isn’t heavy or overpowering. It has notes of stephanotis jasmine, orange blossom, cedar and neroli, so a really lovely mix of floral, woody and fruity. It always smells so pretty, I think this is one of the most feminine perfumes I have owned. I adore it.

Jo Malone Lime Basil Mandarin Perfume

Jo Malone Lime Basil Mandarin

This is by far my most repurchased perfume, its my classic scent and the perfume I always go back to. It never lets me down and it smells incredible no matter what the season, occasion or time of day. Top notes are lime, mandarin orange and bergamot; heart notes are basil, lilac, iris and thyme; base notes are patchouli and vetiver. So its quite a layered scent and I always get compliments when I wear it. The scent lasts a good amount of time, even when I can’t smell it on myself anymore other people still seem to be able to. I associate this perfume with my honeymoon so it brings back very happy memories. I love quite a few Jo Malone perfumes, they’re so luxurious and special that I always like to repurchase as a little treat to myself (and they come beautifully gift wrapped).

Burberry Body

Burberry Body

My Mum first bought me this perfume a couple of years ago & I would never have picked it myself but I was pleasantly surprised by how lovely it was. I even loved it that much I have repurchased it three times. It has, Top notes of fresh green absinthe, illuminating elegant peach and refined freesia. Floral bouquet of natural rose absolute and iris blends gently with subtle warm tones of sandalwood to form the heart notes. Woody cashmeran, creamy vanilla, sensual amber and musk compose the base. It smells youthful – not in a teen way but in a light, creamy rich kind of a way. Its not heavy or overly sweet. Its an easy scent to wear but I wouldn’t say it was an evening option. I like to use this as a daily scent and its pretty and lasts a good couple of hours before starting to fade.

Valentines Perfume from Miller Harris

Miller Harris Rose Silence

Miller Harris Rose Silence eau de parfum* 

Not one part of this Rose Silence fragrance smells like your typical Rose scented product. Its romantic but not old fashioned, its floral but yet sweet and it has a touch of musk but its not overpowering. Its an absolute delight and would be lovely for all ages. It has notes of,

  • Top notes: mandarin, blackcurrant
  • Heart notes: rose
  • Base notes: patchouli, cashmere musk

I really enjoy fragrances that have patchouli in them and that together with the fruity notes of blackcurrant and mandarin to give it a touch of zest and the cashmere adds a lovely freshness to the mix. The rose is delicate and makes this a very sensual and romantic scent. Its a scent that lasts all day and I have been getting a lot of compliments on my perfume this past month which is always a lovely.

Cosmopolitan The Fragrance*

This debut scent from Cosmopolitan comes beautifully packaged in a crisp white box with a pretty pink and orange bow. iIt looks simple and cute. The bottle itself is really pretty and the glass is almost ombre with shades of pink and orange, its a bottle that will look really nice sat out on your vanity. The glass is heavy and feels luxurious and it has a decorative cut glass effect lid.

New Cosmopolitan Fragrance

The scent is very fruity and quite heady at first but it calms down to more of a mellow scent after a few minutes. It is going to be a very nice scent for the warmer months, it has notes of,

TOP: Pineapple, bergamot, cardamom, mandarin, nectarine and red berries.

MIDDLE: Saffron, heliotrope, night-blooming jasmine, pimento berries and carrot seed.

BASE: Tonka, Patchouli, musk, sandalwood, vanilla and caramel.

I love sandalwood and musk scents as these tend to be a little more masculine but paired with the more fruity scents it makes this fragrance quite complex and gives it a nice depth. I think this is a scent that people will really enjoy and people will be able to pick out different notes that they love.

The scent does last well on me and I can still smell it on my skin after many hours. I think its quite a fresh uplifting scent

New Cosmo Fragrance

Cosmo isn’t a brand I associate with fragrance but for their debut release I have to hand it to them, I really like it, its quite a sophisticated scent and it mellows into being really quite beautiful on the skin. Although the price point I think may be a little high. However it is an eau de parfum and the scent is long wearing. If you get chance to test it out in store, let me know what you think & if you’d say it was worth the price tag.

Cosmopolitan The Fragrance is currently a Boots exclusive – 30ml £28 / 50ml £38 / 100ml £48
