Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier EDP

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier Eau de Parfum

Roger & Gallet are a French Perfumery House founded in 1862 by merchant Charles Armand Roger and banker Charles Matial Gallet. Their products have such a rich history & they are famous for their beautiful scents which I have tried quite a few of but excitingly, 2015 see’s the release of Roger & Gallet first ever Eau de Parfum – Fleur de Figuier. I was lucky enough & thrilled to receive the most exquisite parcel from Roger & Gallet introducing me to this new release and I have fallen head over heals in love with it.

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier EDP* takes its inspiration from the beautiful Mediterranean Summers and encapsulates those sensual, sweet and fresh long Summer evenings.

‘Discover the bliss of an early evening spent in the Mediterranean garden of Esterel. This Eau de Parfum is a precious distillation of natural essences that reveals the intensity and sensuality of a sun-ripened fig heart. The mouth-watering and contrasting fresh notes enhance the accord of candied fig, musk and patchouli, for a truly relaxing effect.’

  • Top notes: precious essences of mandarin and pink peppers
  • Heart notes: fig tree leaves, juicy fig and violet wood
  • Base notes: white musk, candied fig and precious essence of patchouli

My absolute favourite scent in any product is Fig & if you’re a long time reader of my blog you will know this. I adore the scent because it’s so rich, distinctive and sophisticated and I think its a scent that can be worn all year round. This new addition to the Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier range is an intense, long wearing scent that doesn’t dull throughout the day. I only have to apply this in the morning & It still smells beautiful on my skin long into the evening.

Roger & Gallet Fleur de Figuier

Some days I spray it & It smells really musky whilst other days It smells more woody. I love that its such a layered and sophisticated perfume and I have been reaching for it almost every day for 3 weeks.

If you’re looking for a new scent then I can highly recommend this new release from Roger & Gallet, it comes beautifully packaged in a glass bottle with touches of gold and purple and the scent is utterly divine. This is my favourite release from Roger & Gallet and think it will be a popular addition to their range.

Ted Baker – Sugar Sweet Collection

Ted Baker Body Spray & Body Wash

Ted Baker has given their indulgent bath and body collection a Spring makeover and also introduced a few new editions with the gorgeous Sugar Sweet Collection. This collection depicts one of Ted Bakers most iconic floral prints which is set against a backdrop of soft mint or pretty pink. Both collections look luxurious but true to Ted Baker they’re affordable and ideal for everyday use.

I have two of the Soft Floral Pink products from the Sugar Sweet Collection and I’ve been testing them out for a couple of weeks. Ted Baker describes it as,

Entwines the soft floral notes of jasmine & neroli, while the base of patchouli, sandalwood and musk completes the scent. 

Ted Baker Ladies Body Spray

Ted Baker Pink Body Spray* £7 – I had to look twice at the price because this is just the most beautifully packaged spring / summer scent. Its just gorgeous, it has a cream & rose gold lid which had the letter T engraved on the top whilst the pink toned plastic travel friendly bottle has almost a diamond prism cutout base. So feminine and amazingly affordable. I have been spritzing this since it landed on my doorstep last week. It is a body spray so it is lightweight and won’t be a scent that will last from morning to night but it is ideal for popping in your handbag and spritzing on the go, its the perfect daytime scent. Im very very impressed.

Ted Baker - Beautiful Packaging

Ted Baker Pink Body Wash* £8 – Which comes beautifully packaged in a large pink squeeze tube with a pretty floral print, like the body spray this has rose gold touches with the letter T embossed at the top and a rose gold lid. Its a simple touch but it makes it look so much more luxurious and its why I love Ted Baker products, their attention to detail is spot on and you always feel like you’re getting such a treat. This perfumed body wash is a shower mush have & it not only leaves your skin feeling soft & clean but also with a pretty subtle scent of jasmine & patchouli, which have to be two of my favourite scents.

Ted Baker Sugar Sweet Collection

The Sugar Sweet Collection has something for everyone and if you’re looking for an affordable but beautiful gift then make sure you check it out because I think you will be very impressed.

Ted Baker W Gift Set

Ted Baker W Gift Set

Ted Baker always have such lovely gift sets & I have been trying out the new W Gift Set which features Ted’s S/S15 Distinguishing Rose packaging. The floral design is so detailed and makes this gift set look extra special and feel feminine & luxurious.

This Ted Baker W Gift Set* contains a 30ml W Eau de Toilette, a 100ml Body Wash and Body Lotion, so three great products. I think this set is ideal for any friend or family member, and would suit most ages too.

Ted Baker Gift Set

The W Body Lotion* & Body Wash* are products that always get used and for me I can never have enough of either. These both have the same beautiful floral designs as the gift box & the same scent as the perfume which smells Summery and girly. The body lotion is hydrating and absorbs quickly into the skin and the body wash is a lovely way to start the day, it smells fresh and Summery. So they make a great morning combination.

Ted Baker W Gift Set

For me the W Eau de Toilette* is the stand out product in this set, its presented in a really pretty triangular shaped glass bottle which feels heavy and luxurious. It’s such an unusual and pretty shape, I love it. The scent has,

  • Heart notes of Freesia, Rose, Ylang Ylang and Lily of the Valley
  • Top notes of Bergamot, Tangerine, Peach and Rum
  • Base notes of Vanilla, Musk and Vetiver

It has quite floral scent with a hint of sweetness to it. Its a lovely Summery scent that would be really nice during the warmer months because its not a heavy or heady scent but instead smells fresh and lightweight, the perfect daytime perfume. This lasted all day on me. I sprayed some on my scarf a week ago & I can still smell it on there, so it is quite long lasting. I love that the product is pink and looks really feminine, and this gift set is so inexpensive, at £14.99 you get three good sized products and its beautifully packaged.

The Fragrannce Shop Box

I have wanted to try the Dolce & Gabbana Dolce Floral Drops and the new Stella perfume for ages and have been loving both of them. I think the Stella McCartney Stella Eau de Toilette is my favourite from this box and is described as,

‘A fresh and sparkling scent of garden rose. It contains the same notes of amber and rose as the original, but includes additional accords of frozen lemon, mandarin, freesia, peony and violet leaf. It opens with fresh mandarin and frozen lemon, balanced with watery tones of freesia to create a soft, dewy feeling. The floral heart of Bulgarian rose essence with crunchy violet leaves and delicate peony petals, brings a freshness to the fragrance, while amber gris base notes reveal a masculine undertone.’

Its such a pretty fresh, zesty scent with a musky twist and it lasts all day on me. I can spray it in the morning and still smell it on myself at the end of the night. I am going to use one of the vouchers in the booklet to treat myself to this for Easter!
