The Edit: Smell the roses

Smell the roses

{Rendition of roses}

About a year ago I decided that the scent of rose was totally ‘cool’ and no longer reserved for grandma’s hand soap and talc. Rose in colour, rose in flavour, rose in scent. So many new beauty products were adopting the scent and I embrace it with open arms.

I recently purchased the Fresh Rose Floral Toner and that’s what set me off back in to the rose rhythm. An alcohol-free toner that isn’t an effort of adding an ‘extra step’ to your skincare routine. The spray pump allows for a refreshing, simple application. I love using this softly scented product to set my makeup when I’m done, it’s such a pretty touch.

{Rose care for your lips}

Take Dior’s Creme De Rose Smoothing Lip Balm, a silky seduction of rose-scented care for your pout. Hydrating and protecting with an SPF 10, this pretty sits beautifully on my desk.

Bdellium brushes are impressive in their own right but the Pink Bamboo extension is for the princess in you. I adore this 975 Mixed powder brush for sweeping on my Les Beige or Ambient Lighting powder on.

{Rose on your tips}

The quality of Dior polishes blew it out of the water in 2013 and the Darling addition to their permanent collection is the perfect hue of a true, rosey pink for your tips.

If anyone is going to achieve the perfect, rose scent, it’ll be Diptyque. A soothing rendition of the classic flower, this roses candle is the best to be burning while you work.

{The most romantic rose}

I fell in love with this fragrance from the initial spray to the delicate dry-down. Roses de Chloe is a luminous blend of fresh cut roses, bergamot, rose essence, magnolia accord, white musk and amber.

It’s incredibly romantic and perfect for date nights. You couldn’t be more feminine wearing this if you tried.

    I looove your selection! Roses de Chloé is so pretty it’s been on my wish list ever since I got a sample of it. Dior nail polish formula is one of my fave and Darling will probably end up coming home with me this spring. 🙂

    This gives me hope 🙂 Maybe rose scent will eventually grow on me?
    I have to say, that nail polish looks gorgeous!

    So funny that you would post about this. I’ve been feeling the same for a few months. Never was much of a fan of rose scented stuff and now I’m looking for it everywhere I go! I’ve had the Dior Creme de rose for over a year. Been contemplating buying Roses de Chloé and got L’Occitane Rose 4 Reines hand cream for Christmas. I also bought my first Diptyque candle before Christmas and got the Roses one. How about the Fresh Toner? Is it good?
