Valentines Treats From Roger & Gallet

Roger & Gallet Rose Collection

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 perfumes and body products.

With Valentines Day fast approaching Roger & Gallet have lots of collections which would make beautiful gifts for that special someone but I have to say the Rose Collection is the one for me. Roses are so romantic and these Rose scented products are 100% better than being given a bunch of roses.

Roget and Gallet Rose Perfume

This fragrance is inspired by the wonders of nature, Rose Imaginaire is an Eau Fraiche* is a sensual and refreshing fragrance. It has notes of tangerine and juicy tones of strawberry, this freshness merges into the velvety scent of jasmine and violet to reveal the milky and elegant softness of sandalwood and patchouli.

The Rose Imaginaire perfume is the ideal fresh scent, not overpowering or heady but light and floral. I know most people think Rose scents are targeted at an older market but don’t pass this collection, I think it is perfect for any age. Its easy to wear & makes the perfect daytime fragrance. I like that the fruitiness comes through and adds a refreshing twist to the overall scent.

Roger & Gallet Valentines Gifts

Rose Hand & Nail Cream* – Is lovely to have in your handbag or sat on your desk. It is enriched with shea butter and rose extract to keep your hands soft & nourished and it smells beautiful. The formula isn’t greasy, it leaves your hands smooth and the cream is absorbed quickly. A hand cream that does a great job!

Rose Body Lotion* – formulated with rose petals & almond milk to keep your skin hydrated, smooth and silky soft this body lotion is a little slice of luxury for your body. Its a lightweight cream and is easily absorbed. I love that it has a pump, it makes applying it so much easier & fuss free. I’ve had gorgeously silky smooth legs since I’ve been using this.

I have to say that all three products would make sweet Valentines gifts & if you want to have a look at the full Roger & Gallet Rose Collection you can do here. They have a lovely selection of products, I would say the Rose Imaginaire is just beautiful and it would make such a thoughtful gift.

Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus

Roger & Gallet Gift Set Roger & Gallet

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 perfumes and body products. I have been testing their beautiful Fleur d’Osmanthus* Gift Set.  It comes beautifully packaged in a stunning green box, its so pretty I will be keeping it to store beauty bits in.

This Fleur d’Osmanthus range is inspired by a Chinese Garden of Eden and is named after the beautiful Chinese flower,

The shy Osmanthus plants grows in the foothills of the Guilin Valley in China, whose fertile land gently coaxes the flower to bloom over a period of two years, eventually producing tiny clusters of apricot-coloured flowers that scent the air. These tiny buds are renowned for their stress-reducing and uplifting effect, cementing their place as a prized bloom.

I find this range has such a fresh floral scent when first used but I find it settles down to be more citrus and fruity once on your skin. It has a varied selection of notes including a few of my favourites which are Sandalwood and Tonka Bean.

Top note of Mandarin Essential Oil and Orange Zest

Heart notes of Osmanthus, Neroli and Grapefruit Essential Oil

Base notes of Sandalwood, Tonka Bean and Benzoin Essential Oil

This Fleur d’Osmanthus* gift set includes:
– Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Eau Fraîche Fragrance 100ml
– Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Sorbet Body Lotion 50ml
– Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus Shower Gel 50ml

The perfume is beautiful, the bottle is glass and feels luxurious & the smell is so fresh and calming. I wouldn’t say it is a Winter scent but more of a Spring / Summer one. Its not heady or over powering, its very pretty and feminine. I would say it lasts a good few hours but isn’t the most long wearing scent. I have been wearing it during the day & really like the way it smells both floral & quite woody.

Both the Sorbet Body Lotion & the Shower Gel are very nice too & I took them with me on a weekend break, 50ml was the ideal size for my weekend bag. They were hydrating and left my skin soft & the fresh scent lingered on my skin for quite a while. Using the matching body care to your perfume is also a great way of making the scent more intense & it lasts longer. So this made a great trio.

The Perfume is the standout product in this gift set & is a beautiful fragrance that would appeal to people that not only liked floral scents but also citrus & woody ones too. As this range has notes of Sandalwood, Grapefruit and the Chinese Osmanthus flower, so this is a layered scent.

Discovery ClubPerfume Samples

This is the latest Autumn / Winter Box* and it included 5 samples all of which I had never tried before, so that was exciting. Im terrible at describing scents & always think everything smells ‘floral’ or ‘sweet’ so I will use The Fragrance Shop professional descriptions

Jimmy Choo MAN

The masculine fragrance is a woody aromatic fougère, full of modern freshness. Top notes of lavender and mandarin spray are softened by the fruity notes of honeydew melon, followed by heart notes of pink pepper and geranium mixed with pineapple leaf. Finally the fragrance unveils a lasting print of patchouli, suede and ambery woods

Loewe Aura 

A fresh floral and fruity Eau de Toilette. Top notes: Lychee, Rosa water, Lemon and Mandarin. Heart notes: Rose Otto, Jasmine Sambac, Mangolia and Raspberry. Base notes: Sandalwood, Suede Leather Note, Musk and Amber.

Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Intense

The new composition is described as a vivacious, intensive, oriental and solar, containing notes of tiare, pomegranate and gourmand accords at the top, with the heart of orange blossom, rose and jasmine and the base of patchouli and vanilla.

Kenzo Jew d’Amour

KENZO JEU D’AMOUR celebrates the romantic lovers game with an ultra-feminine, sensual and captivating fragrance. With notes of Tea, Mandarin,  Pomegranate set the mood, Tuberose and Freesia sign an ultra-feminine floral heart over a sensual base of Musks and creamy Sandalwood.

Loewe Quizás Seducción

Is floral – fruity fragrance with aphrodisiac powers. It opens with fruity cocktail of tempting passion fruit, sweet orange and blackberry. Its full floral heart combines elegant Sambac jasmine with strong tuberose and orange blossom. The base of the perfume features sweet notes of caramel and vanilla.

Out of the selection I really like the Kenzo Jew d’Amour as it is quite light and fresh but it lasts all day on me. I’m tempted to get myself the full size.
