DKNY Delicious Delights Cool Swirl

DKNY Delicious DelightsDKNY Delicious Delights 2015

Spring saw the release of the DKNY Delicious Delights – A limited edition collection of fragrances inspired by Sweet Sorbet Treats. These Sorbet Perfumes come in the iconic Be Delicious apple packaging which is something we all recognise and associate with DKNY. The bottles are really pretty and I like that they’re frosted glass and pastel coloured, perfect for Spring / Summer, mine looks so cute on my vanity.

The scents themselves are quite sweet and fresh but each one is so different. I was drawn to Cool Swirl* (green) because although it’s quite sweet it still has a musky layer to it and thats my kind of scent.

Cool Swirl (green) – is a refreshing tropical scent with top notes of black cranberry (or European blueberry), violet leaf and coconut water. Flowers of magnolia and jasmine are wrapped in creamy pistachio sorbet and laid on the base of heliotrope, musk and patchouli.

Dreamsicle (orange) – is a fresh fruity blend of mandarin, raspberry and blueberry at the top. Tempting and delicious aromas of green apple, peach nectar and apricot sorbet forms the heart. Its creamy base consists of cedar, sandalwood and vanilla.

Fruity Rooty (lilac) – is a sweet fruity scent that opens with a combination of blackberry, blueberry and mandarin. The heart of rose, violet and candied apple sorbet is followed by the base that combines elegant lily with vanilla.

DKNY Summer Scent

I have been using Cool Swirl for a good few months now, reaching for it when the weather is warm outside. It is my Summer scent for sure, when I first spray it I can really smell the fruity notes but as it settles down the patchouli and musk come through and it smells so good. Its the perfect fun, refreshing summer scent, I think its more of a daytime scent just because its quite light and fresh. Cool Swirl does last quite a long time on me which is good news because the packaging is a little bulky to be carrying around in your handbag.

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.

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.

Ted Baker W Fragrance

This beautiful Ted Baker W Gift Set is £14.99 and exclusive to The Perfume Shop & they offer FREE standard delivery on all orders.
