Despite Cornwall being SUPER busy with tourists & people trying to get a holiday in without travelling abroad, we have been trying to get out & about to enjoy what is on our doorstep. We have lived in Cornwall for almost 6 years now and have never visited Padstow, which is crazy because it is so close to us and is STUNNING. Everyone said it was beautiful and that it is jammed packed full of shops, restaurants and pretty scenery as well as having a very busy and bustling harbour. We spent the day exploring, relaxing and enjoying all the delights that Padstow has to offer. We landed lucky with the weather and decided to walk the 3 miles from Wadebridge to Padstow (and back) along the famous Camel Trail. Most people cycle this route, but we decided to take our time and walk. It was peaceful, and you had some incredible views across the river.
Here are a few of my favourite photos from the day, I took hundreds, and it was hard to narrow it down to the ones I am sharing. There was something pretty to take a photo of at every turn, the views, cottages, streets and businesses are all so quaint and photo worthy. I will 100% be popping back for a second visit – if only for another ice cream.
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.
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
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.
