Floris Wedding Bouquet
I adore this new fragrance from Floris! Created exclusively to celebrate the marriage of Prince William and Kate Middleton, Wedding Bouquet draws inspiration from the most acclaimed Floris wedding fragrances of the past whilst introducing a modern twist using a white flower theme.
The delicate accord of lily of the valley with a fresh citrus twist introduces the heart of this pretty white floral bouquet of jasmine, orange blossom and stephanotis and is sustained by a soft base of sandalwood and musk. Simply gorgeous!
Perfectly timed for the Royal wedding it will be on counters this month.
Jeanne Lanvin La Plume
I really like this new fragrance from Jeanne Lanvin La Plume, it is a young and sexy creation.

The bottle is also super-cute!

Exotic incense and earthy oakmoss are wrapped in the warmth of cedarwood, musk and peach skin. It is a very unique fragrance with an overall spicy fruity scent.
Peace Love & Juicy Couture
This fragrance from Juicy Couture is really unique, very different from all the other Summer fragrances. It reminds me of a Summers day in the park when the grass has just been cut.

Middle notes of sambac jasmine absolute, star magnolia, malibu poppy, honeysuckle and linden blossom. Base notes of orris extract, sheer patchouli flower and enveloping musks. The scent definitely gets better the longer you wear it, so don’t judge it on the first spray, wait an hour or two and you will be in heaven.
