This post is so overdue, but not overdue. You see, I’m bringing to you my Christmas present from my parents, but I didn’t get it at Christmas. The hubby and I had planned to travel to Luton during the holidays, but it snowed there and my family were worried for us, so we didn’t go.
We were thankfully able to stay with them during the long Easter bank holiday weekend, which was so lazy and relaxing. Just what I needed.
Anyway, I am a person who would rather tell you what I want than you have no clue what to get me, or get me something that I don’t like. At least you can guarantee that I’ll be happy with it and both parties win. So, I sent my mum a selection of perfumes that I wanted and told her to pick one. She chose Because it’s You for her and Stronger With You for him by Emporio Armani for the hubby.
My mum chose the gift set for me which comes with a 50ml bottle, a cute travel-size bottle and a lip balm.
This fragrance is so beautiful. A little goes a long way; it can last a long time and I have been complimented whilst wearing it. The scent is feminine and fruity, and whenever I wear it I feel so special. I love scents that make me feel good and excited to wear them.
The top notes are: Raspberry, Blackcurrant and Neroli essence.
The heart notes are: Violet leaves accord, Rose Absolute, and Jasmin Sambac Absolute.
The base notes are: Patchouli essence, Vanilla Extract, Musks.
I judged the book by its cover with this lip balm. I was confused as to why a perfume gift set would come with lip balm in the first place, but this little gem won me over. It has the scent but it’s not overpowering. It also has a cool, numbing effect and is thick so you don’t need much.
I only wear perfumes this classy for special occasions and church, so that they last longer.
Have you tried Because it’s You?
