Bobbi Brown Beach Perfume - Review

 

I’m a big fan of Bobbi Brown, the brand and the lady herself. Beach is the only perfume in the brand portfolio, inspired by Bobbi’s favorite place (the beach, of course!), I knew it had to special. Before I tell you what this actually smells like, let me tell you what it doesn’t smell like. This isn’t a typical summer/beach/tropical scent. It doesn’t smell aquatic or ozonic or fruity like other scents in this genre. The notes are very few and very simple but the combination is lovely! When I first smelled it, I thought was very earthy, fresh and clean, and very unexpected in the way that its not very perfume-y, it that makes sense! The notes listed on the website are sand jasmine, sea spray, and mandarin and while its hard to pin point the exact notes when you sniff it, it definitely has that saltiness that reminds one of the ocean.

Hi everyone! Today I’m reviewing the Paco Rabanne Lady Million Privé fragrance that was launched in 2016, following the success of the original Paco Rabanne Lady Million.The richness and opulence of this fragrance is captured beautifully in the rich amber color of the perfume and the diamond-like multi-faceted design of the bottle. The play of warm shades reflects the sweet honey/cacao notes of the scent.

Hi everyone! The MAC Shadescents collection, which consists of 6 fragrances inspired by the most iconic MAC lipsticks, hits Indian stores on March 17th! They have relaunched the 6 lipsticks as well in a limited edition packaging and I have to say, the color-coordinated tubes looks really sleek and beautiful. There are 6 lipsticks (Rs 1500) and 6 coordinating perfumes (Rs 4500) in this collection – Heroine (purple, matte), Ruby Woo (deep red, retro matte), Lady Danger (bright coral red, matte), Candy Yum-Yum (bright neon pink,matte), Velvet Teddy (neutral nude, matte) and Crème d’Nude (pale beige, cremesheen).

Hi everyone! Now that we’ve said goodbye to the winters, I’m bringing back fresh spring florals into my bath and body routine. L’Occitane recently launched their Rose Originelle collection which consists of a shower gel, a body lotion, a hand cream and an EDT. Today I will be reviewing a few of the products from this lovely floral collection. I love rose scents in my beauty products and L’Occitane always does fragrances very well so I was looking forward to trying this out.

L’Occitane Rose Originelle Shower Gel (Rs 1510, 250 ml)

The shower gel comes in a beautiful packaging. The bottle, with its golden cap and honey colored shower gel, looks decadent and charming. The gel itself has a slightly runny consistency, lathers well without foaming too much and doesn’t strip the skin dry. I love the rose scent which is delicately balanced with a soft fruity note, making this a feminine and refreshing shower wash. The scent is not overpowering and doesn’t linger much after rinsing. If you like roses or florals in general, you would definitely like this!

This range contains extracts from three varieties of roses –

  • Rose absolute from Turkey
  • Rose from Grasse (Rosa Centifolia Extract)
  • Rose centifolia absolute from Grasse

Its also free from the following – BHA, BHT, formol or formaldehyde, parabens, phenoxyethanol, phtalates, silicone & triclosan.
