There are some things that you’ve always wanted to purchase yourself but just couldn’t justify it when you had the real world calling. Jo Malone and Diptyque are what I consider expensive products but my goodness are they decadent. Forever on my wish list I was spoilt this Christmas just gone. A beautiful coworker overwhelmed me with her triple, a-star secret Santa gift by treating me to a Diptyque closet fragrance. The Bais scent has alway been one of my favourite and ill shameless admit to open my closet just to smell it from time to time. Needless to say its convinced me that a candle in the same sent is more than justified. The fragrance translates to ‘Berries’ but its not the sweet and fruity scent that you may imagine. It emulates a fresh, clean smell of roses and blackcurrent and is shown to be a smell that is pleasing to both men and women. My boyfriend loves it just as much as I do.
My beautiful sister went through airport hell and high-water to get this luxurious body cream to me when she visited for the Holidays. It’s such a delicious and soft product that I can barely bring myself to use it. The rich body creme feels like whipped silk on the skin and is so sweetly fragranced you’ll too, be sniffing your arm every few minutes. You just can’t help it. British brand, Jo Malone was established in 1994 and specialises in bespoke fragrances. Their latest addition to the fragrance collection is the Earl Grey and Cucumber. You have to smell it once and you’ll be hooked.
My scent of choice is the Nectarine Blossom and Honey. A gentle mix of peach, nectarine and acacia honey scents the skin for hours but I still can’t get enough. Sooner or later I’ll purchase the fragrance too.
