Miller Harris Rose Silence Perfume

Rose Silence Fragrance from Miller Harris

Miller Harris Rose Silence

I was first introduced to Miller Harris 2 years ago and instantly fell in love. I’ve tried four of their fragrances but for me, their Rose Silence perfume is simply stunning and has become my everyday scent. You know that feeling when you find a perfume that makes you feel amazing when you wear it? well, that is how Rose Silence makes me feel.

Miller Harris was founded 15 years ago by expert parfumer Lyn Harris who spent five years training in Paris, then in Grasse at Robertet, the world’s leader in natural aromatic ingredients. Whilst respecting tradition, Miller Harris strives to push the boundaries, creating exquisitely crafted fragrances that are innovative yet timeless. Miller Harris perfumes are beautiful, luxurious and timeless. 

Miller Harris Rose Silence Perfume

I have the perfume in all three of the sizes available 100ml, 50ml and a 15ml handbag spray. I use this perfume on a daily basis, always have the mini bottle in my handbag and even take it away with me on holiday. It has become my signature scent.

I love that this is very much a modern, romantic take on a Rose perfume. It isn’t the slightest bit old fashioned or powdery. You can make out the sweetness of the blackcurrant and I love the touch of musk too, it makes it very sexy and contemporary. It has notes of,

  • Top notes: mandarin, blackcurrant

  • Heart notes: rose

  • Base notes: patchouli, cashmere musk

I seem to be drawn to fragrances that have patchouli in them and I think it works so well with the sweet/fruity notes of blackcurrant and mandarin which give it a zesty feel. Whilst the cashmere adds a romantic softness.

The rose notes are very delicate and combined with the other notes make this a very sensual and romantic scent which is easy to wear. It smells light and fresh but also has incredible staying power, I have noticed that a couple of sprays in the morning will last well into the evening, I can always still smell it on my clothes when I get back home. The quality of Miller Harris fragrance is such that a little product goes a long way and a bottle will last you months and months.

Favourite Perfume from Miller Harris

I love the square, chunky bottles. They feel weighty and luxurious, their simple black stencil-like design gives it them a very contemporary minimalist vibe. Everything about this brand is focused on quality, elegance and luxury. Their products make the most thoughtful, exquisite gifts.

Rose Silence Miller Harris Luxury Perfume

I am just head over heels in love with this scent and I just don’t feel like I’m ready for the day without it. It’s a scent which that lasts all day and I always have so many people asking what perfume I’m wearing, it seems to be a scent that appeals to a lot of people of all different ages.

I need to try the bath and body products from this collection too – I can imagine just how amazing the body lotion would smell on my skin.

Have you tried any perfumes from Miller Harris? Or have I managed to convince you to track down a counter and give them a go? I hope so.

BAYLIS & HARDING ROSÉ PROSECCO FIZZ RANGE

Rose Prosecco Fizz Collection From Baylis and Harding

Baylis and Harding Rosé Prosecco Fizz Valentine's Collection

I have reviewed quite a few Baylis & Harding collections over the years but I have to say this latest Rosé Prosecco Fizz selection is by far my favourite. It is so luxurious looking and the scent is feminine and sweet. I also like the huge range of products and gift sets available. You can get everything from a small token gift to larger more special gift sets. It’s perfect for Valentine’s Day (or indeed Mother’s Day) gifts, especially if you’re on a budget but still want a gift that looks, smells and feels luxurious, Baylis and Harding really are excellent at affordable luxury.

I just fell in love with this sweet van shaped tin, it has a real Parisian vintage vibe to it which is adorable. I will be using this to store my beauty samples once it’s empty. The packaging makes it a really great gift for any female in your life. Inside you get two deluxe travel sizes of Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion as well as a pink body polisher. A great trio of pampering products and ideal sizes if you’re planning a little Valentine’s Trip!

Real Techniques PowderBleu Makeup Brushes

Real Techniques Powder Bleu Collection

Real Techniques Powder Bleu Collection

Real Techniques have really expanded their brush range over the past couple of years and they cater for all of your makeup brush needs (and wants). Everything from mini travel brushes & makeup sponges to more luxurious, pretty brushes. I’ve never tried a brush from Real Techniques that I didn’t like, their products are always fantastic quality and I love that they release limited edition and fun collections throughout the year. I’m a sucker for a limited collection.

I’ve been trying a selection of brushes from the recent Powderbleu Collection made with FauxBleu synthetic bristles which are meant to perform as well as the infamous Blue Squirrel haired brushes which were so prestigious within the makeup industry. All of the brushes are incredibly soft but I have to mention how nice the handles are. They are a blue ombre and I just love the blue hues in this collection, the colour looks incredibly luxurious and gives me those old Hollywood vibes. I think it is the mix of deep blue and gold touches. Very glamorous! The handles are long, quite slim and taper to a point which makes them very ergonomic to hold and use.

Beautiful Real Techniques Makeup Brushes

B01 Soft Powder Brush £22.00

This is a huge soft but dense powder brush that tapers at the top. It is like a much bigger version of the Soft Finishing brush. I like to use this to apply my finishing powder on top of my foundation. This picks up powder so well and is so light to sweep across my skin without disturbing my base. It feels so soft against my skin and my powder has such a flawless finish when I use this. It is a lovely brush to have in my collection and I’ve used it every time I’ve worn makeup for the past 5 weeks.

B02 Soft Finishing Brush £22.00

Out of the four brushes that I have been testing this is the only one that shed any bristles and I was a little annoyed because it continued to shed even after I had washed it. This brush is domed and dense in shape and is designed to blend + buff powder foundation onto skin for buildable, shine-free coverage but I haven’t been using it for this purpose. I have instead found it really good at applying powder blusher and bronzer, it picks up a good amount of product and places it nicely on my cheekbones. Because it is slightly tapered at the end it means you get a higher degree of accuracy when placing the product. I also use this brush to blend out the blush/bronzer so it looks subtle and seamless.

Powderbleu Makeup Brushes

B03 Soft Complexion Brush £22.00

This is a wonderful brush for applying powder foundation, I have really been getting into mineral foundations this past 18 months, and I’ve almost always applied them with a standard kabuki brush which works well. This Soft Complexion Brush has a smaller, denser head which makes buffing in the powder so much more effective. I also find having the long handle of a brush over the stubbiness of the kabuki brush easier to use and it’s easier to lightly apply my foundation and really buff it in giving me a soft focus finish.

B04 Soft Shadow Brush £15.00

The tapered, precision head of the Soft Shadow Brush makes it the perfect shape to layer and blend powder shadows for a naturally diffused look. It is incredibly soft and it blends out your eyeshadow with ease. I would say out of the four brushes I have tried from this collection this is one I have used the most. Not only for creating beautiful soft eye looks but also for applying touches of highlighter to the areas you only want to place a subtle glow, like down the nose, brow bone and cupids bow. It is a lovely multi-use brush and I always say you can never have too many blending brushes in your collection, they always see so much use.

All brushes in this PowderBleu Collection are

  • Synthetic  FauxBleu™ Technology Bristles
  • Easy Clean
  • Long Lasting

I received the PowderBleu Brushes complimentary from Influenster for review purposes. All opinions are my own and completely honest.
