Roger & Gallet Fleur d’Osmanthus

Roger & Gallet

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.

Roger & Gallet Gingembre Rouge

Roger & Gallet

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 and I have been testing their beautiful new fragrance Gingembre Rouge*

This new fragrance from Roger & Gallet is a refreshing take on their popular Gingembre scent, which has been available for over a decade now. The original Gingembre is more of an intense scent whereas the new Gingembre Rouge* (red ginger) is light, fresh and fruity.

For this new scent Roger & Gallet have taken inspiration from the exotic and beautiful Island of Zanzibar, I have never had the pleasure of visiting but I can just imagine its warmth and beauty. This fragrance smells exotic, feminine and quite sweet, it has the following top note, heart notes & base note

Top Notes: Fresh Ginger, Pomegranate Pulp, Mandarin

Heart Notes: Ginger Flower, Lychee Flower, Orange Blossom

Base Notes: Crystallised Ginger, Cedar Wood, White Musk

I’m terrible at describing scents but I would say that this smells zesty, spicy and floral in equal measures. The ginger adds a twist but isn’t overpowering and the scent is beautiful from the moment you spray it in to the skin. Its gorgeous & has been my go to Summer scent. I took it with me in my Travelo on my recent trip to Amsterdam & it was the perfect scent for day & night.

Roger & Gallet Fragrance

The bottle is pretty and feminine, it has a beautiful ombre effect from deep to light pink and it looks right at home on my vanity. I have the very sweet and travel friendly 30ml (£16) bottle it also comes in 100ml (£39) so both are very affordable. Roger & Gallet are available online at Marks & Spencer, Feel Unique and  

This is undoubtably the perfect scent for warmer months but I still plan on wearing it long into Autumn. It has such a fresh fruity scent which will still be lovely as a daytime fragrance even as the days grow shorter and the temperature cools.

If you’re lucky enough to be jetting away for some Winter sun then this would be the perfect holiday fragrance.

My Introduction to Decleor Skincare

Decleor Prolagene Lift Collection

I have been trying out this Decleor Lift & Fill Wrinkle Mask* from their Prolagene range, it’s a mask more suitable to Mature Skin or for those of us that are seeing more lines and wrinkles appearing. It is for specifically targeting deep facial wrinkles, firming those areas and making them appear plumper.

This Prolagene Lift range is based on three active ingredients,

Iris Essential Oil  (boosts skins elasticity // L-PROLINE Complex (amino acid for lifting and reshaping) // Hyaluronic Acids (plumping)

Together these drip feed a blend of highly concentrated active ingredients offering immediate hydration and instantly smoother skin. Along with the instant effects, this also has long-lasting effects due to the Lifting Filler that combined with the L-PROLINE Complex encourages intercellular communication to plump up wrinkles.

Decleor Skincare


This has a gel-cream formula that is absorbed quickly into the skin & is suitable for all skin types, my skin is generally quite Oily but is also dehydrated around my eyes. I used this as directed twice a week as a targeted wrinkle treatment. I have quite a deep wrinkle around my eyes and around my mouth. I applied a ten pence piece sized amount to those specific areas, I left it for 10 minutes then I massaged what product hadn’t been absorbed into those areas. I like to use this after cleansing and before bed. I see the best results that way.

I think another plus of this mask is the fact you don’t need to wash it off, its fuss-free. You just rub the extra product into your skin. So it is easy to use where-ever you are and if you’re pushed for time.

In terms of results, it was quite remarkable as when I woke from using this the second time the wrinkles around my mouth were visibly reduced and not only that the area looked plump and very smooth, even my husband commented on how plump that area looked. I was very impressed with the results. Going forward and after having used this mask for 7 weeks, I think the results are undeniably good. My skin is looking smoother and my deep set wrinkles have been visibly reduced. My mum who is 56 (hello Linda) was right on this & she bought herself a tube after hearing me going on about it. I can see it visibly reducing her deep-set wrinkles and I’d say her skin is looking plump too.


The packaging is nice and user-friendly, it has a handy pump that dispenses just enough product without being messy or wasteful. The product is lightweight and highly absorbent so no greasy feeling here, but your skin still feels the benefits of it being extremely hydrating. You get 30ml of product and as it is a targeted treatment you barely use any product, I have a feeling this is going to last me at least a year.

So if you’re in your late 30’s + and are looking for a mask that delivers targeted results on not only the first signs of ageing but also deep set wrinkles then I urge you to give this Decleor Prolagene Lift Mask a try. I don’t think I have ever used an at-home mask that’s delivered such reducing and plumping effects. Excuse me whilst I invest in the whole range.

This mask contains no mineral oil and is fragrance-free.
