New Lancome Idole Perfume

{gifted} Say hello to the Idole, the latest fragrance release from Luxury beauty brand Lancôme. As soon as I took this bottle out of the box I thought ‘WOW!’, it is so unusual, elegant and sleek. The glass bottle is just 15mm thick with gorgeous gold accents and I think it is the slimmest perfume bottle I have ever seen and utterly gorgeous with a very feminine feel. Although slightly precarious as you can’t stand it up on your vanity, it still looks beautiful and the fact the bottle is so sleek means it is pretty & portable The fragrance is also as wonderful as the bottle it comes in (which was a relief).

New Lancome Idole Perfume

Idole by Lancôme 50ml – £75.00

If you like floral scents with a modern sexy twist then you are in for a treat with this latest offering from Lancôme. They have dedicated this perfume Idole to strong women who defy expectations, uphold unity and transcend the limits of the individual to shape the future and influence the next generation of leaders, the essence of modern femininity. I do love it when brands empower and support women and the message at the centre of this perfume is that strong women support each other, encourage each others successes and that their bravery and determination are what defines them.

The perfume itself reflects the beautiful, delicate but interesting bottle and Lancome have layered some of my favourite scents to create a whimsical, elegant perfume with layers of floral, sweet and warm notes. This perfume also includes, a sustainably sourced Isparta Rose Petal Essence from Turkey exclusively made for Lancôme (which is a move by Lancôme to be environmentally friendly).

Top Notes: Bergamot Essence

Heart Notes : Rose Essence, Rose Absolute and Rose Water, Jasmine Infusion and Jasmine Absolute

Base Notes : Patchouli Heart Essence, Cedar Essence and Vanilla Extract

Pretty new rose fragrance Idole from Lancome

Idole Lancome Perfume 2019

What I like about this perfume is that the rose notes give this a modern, fresh, sexy feel not the usual powdery old-fashioned scent that rose usual takes on. I think the floral rose and jasmine notes work so well layered with patchouli and vanilla to give it a warming elegant vibe. I urge you to pop to your nearest Lancôme counter or perfume shop and test it out, It is the perfect fragrance to wear Summer into Autumn, with the mix of floral, fresh, warm and musky notes.

I am also a huge fan of Zendaya Coleman who is the face of Idole, she is gorgeous and very accomplished actress. If you haven’t watched her in the hit HBO series Euphoria, you need to. It is nice to see Lancôme taking their brand to a younger market, it keeps them relevant and modern and I think that is really reflected in this perfume.

Lancome Idole Perfume Bottle

If you’re looking for a lovely treat for yourself, a new Summer fragrance to add to your beauty stash then this Idole by Lancôme has to be top of that list, it ticks all the boxes for me. Another wonderful aspect of this fragrance is that the bottle is refillable, you can take your empty bottle to one of the 200 Lancôme counters throughout the UK and have it refilled. You will receive a discount too. This is wonderful news in terms of the beauty industry trying to combat the impact of waste and encourage people to reuse their perfectly good bottle!

Urban Retreat Beautique Wishlist

Urban Retreat is the online beauty destination for all things luxury. Not only can you book appointments at one of their beautiful salons including their flagship location on the top floor of Harrods but they also offer a beauty therapy service that will come to your home. Alongside their salons they have an online store Beautique which beauty addicts will love, it offers a really fantastic selection of cult luxurious brands from Sisley, NARS to CoverFX. They sell a wide range of hair, makeup, fragrance and skincare which have been carefully curated so you are getting some of the biggest names in beauty right now.

Urban Retreat Beautique Wishlist

I have been having a browse through their selection and I’ve put together a wish list of products I love the look of.

NARS Velvet Shadow Stick

I am a shadow stick addict and use them most days, they’re so easy to apply especially if you are in a hurry. I like that you can blend them with your finger and they don’t crease. These NARS Velvet Shadow Sticks look right up my street and they come in a really wearable selection of colours.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit 

I think I must be the only beauty blogger on the planet that doesn’t own this beautiful palette. Its just stunning, you get an edit of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders all housed in beautiful rose gold packaging. Whats not to love?! I have only heard incredible things about this palette and their powders in general.

Cover FX Face and Eye Primer Se

I have tried a few products from CoverFX and I’ve never been disappointed. I like the sound of this primer set and especially the eye primer. I’m always looking for products that help keep my makeup in place and looking its best for longer and I think these could be the perfect duo.

GLAMGLOW Bright Mud Eye Treatment

I love the popular GLAMGLOW Mud Mask that comes in the black pot so would be intrigued to try a few more of their products. These Eye Treatments sound soothing and perfect for combating early mornings.

Redken Diamond Oil Shatterproof Shine Hair Oil

I seem to neglect my hair when it comes to pampering but this Diamond Oil range from Redken sounds like it will transform my hair in to glossy, more manageable locks. With it being so cold outside this treatment oil would be great to help strengthen and protect hair from breakage. I must admit I adore the packaging too!


I have tried this treatment before and liked it for applying through the ends of my hair. This is quite a pricey hair treatment but a bottle lasts what feels like forever. Another great haircare product to have in your arsenal.

Laura Mercier Shimmer Bloc in Pink 

I just can’t resist highlighters and think these Shimmer Bloc’s are just gorgeous, I already have the Golden one and its just beautiful. I think this Pink one would get a lot more wear because it would serve as a blush too (if you applied it with a light hand).

NARS Dual-Intensity Blush in Adoration

Another beautiful blush, I have only tried two blushers from NARS and they get a lot of use but this Dual Intensity range looks on another level pretty. These are designed to wear alone of together for more intense colour. There are 7 options and I would honestly take any of them, they all look stunning.

Leighton Denny Pretty Little Things

This year I have got back into wearing nail polish and have been enjoying my Sunday night at home manicures. Leighton Denny is one of my favourite nail polish brands and this cute trio is bright and fun, it also reminds me Spring is just around the corner.

Chanteccaille Lip Chic 

I have never owned anything from this brand but think these Lip Chic lippies look stunning & what a great colour selection. Also if like me you wished your lips were a little fuller then these have added collagen to give lips a plumping boost. Which colour would you pick?

Foreo LUNA

This is a PINK (love the colour) nonabrasive cleansing tool, I have a Clarisonic and use that a lot but I’m always intrigued by other options. This is a rounded silicone touch-points glide across the face for ultra-gentle cleansing that gives you healthier-looking skin within just 3 days. It comes in a selection of cute colours and its petite enough to travel with so that could be very handy indeed. Let me know if you have tried this cleanser and if you’d recommend it.

If you like to use more luxurious products and enjoy shopping online then I recommend stopping by the Beautique’s online store. You will be filling your basket in no time.
