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.

{Tools of rose}

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.

{Your personal rose}

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.

{The Perfume Edit}

Yes, the gift of fragrance is absolutely a personal one but when you know who you’re buying for, it makes it all the more fun, doesn’t it? Being a beauty addict makes things a little more fun though – satisfy more than one personality, that’s what I say.

best perfumes to gift

These five fragrances are a personification of the different sides of me that need tending to. After all, isn’t that what a fragrance is for? Adding a little scented sensuality in to a girl’s life?

Fresh Life Perfume

{So fresh and so clean}

Fresh Life, is for the girl that hates those warm, vanilla scents. Gift this gentle and clean perfume to the girl that likes to step outside of the mainstream fragrance trends. The girlfriend that I know would love this is sporty but sassy and sexy. She’s a real chameleon so you can’t over-complicate a perfume.

marc jacobs perfume

{The University girl}

I fell in love with this fragrance roughly six years ago whilst in awe of a classy roommate of mine. She was eastern european and made of money but she never showed off. She was so softly spoken and so well put together. Marc Jacobs’ Daisy is the fragrance that completes the classiest of women with a dry down that wouldn’t overwhelm the smallest of creatures. Utterly delicate.

Notes: Strawberry, Violet Leaves, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Gardenia, Violet Petals, Jasmine Petals, Musk, Vanilla, White Woods.

Miss Dior perfume

{My mum comes with me every where – Miss Dior}

I know I’m not the only one who does this. I miss my mum so much I sometimes wear her perfume just to be reminded of her. This scent reminds me of the times we shared on a summer vacation years ago. I know women of all ages that enjoy this vibrant fragrance.

Go for this if you know your girl is hooked by a fruity top note with a floral dry down.

Notes: Italian Mandarin Essence, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute, Indonesian Patchouli Essence.

Roses de Chloe

{The one, The Romantic}

This fragrance is everything I’m in love with right now. It’s feminine, it’s dainty it’s soft and it’s pretty. It’s for the girl that falls in love with everything around her.

Roses de Chloe is a perfume that’s soft and powdery with a hint of sweet flower. the best way to describe this? As tender as a petal. Quite honestly, I just want to bathe in it.

Notes: bergamot, damascena rose essence, magnolia accord, white musk and amber

Tom Ford Violet Blonde

{The Money Maker}

Sure, this one isn’t for every one. It may even be a deterrent to most for the simple fact that it featured those intense, opulent notes. An extravagant gift at $80 for 30ml of juice but the price is reflective of the ingredients. Complicated, strong and bold, this is for a woman that already has a library of perfume.

Notes: Violet Leaf Absolute, Italian Mandarin, Baie Rose, Tuscan Orris Absolute, Tuscan Orris Butter, Jasmin Sambac, Sampaquita, Benzoin, Cedarwood, Vetiver Absolute, Musk, Soft Suede
