a very luxury scent | Jo Malone


“Darkest Damask rose. Rich and textural, wrapped with smoky oud wood. Spiked with clove, decadent with praline. Magnetic”

 So this is what happens when you get a tax rebate and your in Jo Malone… oops!

I discovered this scent a while ago but as a quite powerful fragrance I wasn’t sure if it was just a little bit too much. However as a super luxury treat I decided to purchase this and I’ve had lots of compliments already. Just being in that shop is like taking a trip to a spa, it’s peaceful, everything’s cream and it smells amazing. The service is always good to and the product knowledge of the ladies that work there is amazing! Definitely a one off indulgence but totally worth it.

A scent rediscovered – YSL Parisienne

yslOn a recent beauty clear out I found a bottle of YSL Parisienne hiding in a makeup bag and after not using it for a long time I have fallen in love with it all over again. I don’t normally like very sweet floral scents but the violet, blackberry, peonies and damask rose is blended with sandalwood and musk for a much deeper and richer scent. It smells very glamorous but in an understated way and the scent last forever. It’s definitely a classic even if it hasn’t been around for too long and I love the packaging, so if your looking for a new scent I would highly recommend.
