Baylis & Harding Mango & Mandarin Fragrance Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about Baylis & Harding‘s Mango & Mandarin Fragrance Mist which I picked up a few weeks ago.

This fragrance mist promises to refresh and hydrate the skin – and that’s exactly what it does!

I don’t know how it works, but this spray feels very fresh, almost cold, when it hits the skin. The cooling effect lasts for a few seconds, and it’s really nice.

I’m happy that the spray feels hydrating. I like to spray it down my back after the shower. It makes my skin feel soft and silky. Brilliant!

I think the fragrance itself is very pleasant because it’s refreshing, fruity and tangy. I’ve been enjoying it a lot over the past couple of weeks. Great stuff!

Baylis & Harding‘s Mango & Mandarin Fragrance Mist is available as 100ml. I paid £1 (Poundland). I’ve also seen matching body products (shower gel, shower scrub, body butter).

Wonder Woman Shower Gel, 2 In 1 Shampoo / Conditioner, Roll-On Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 Wonder Woman branded products. These products were manufactured by H&A, a UK-based company that makes products for all sorts of different brands – they even made the Pusheen products I snapped up on Boxing Day!

Moving on… here’s what I’m reviewing today – Wonder Woman Shower Gel, Wonder Woman 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner, and Wonder Woman Roll-On Eau De Toilette.

The shampoo is quite nice. It lathers up nicely, and it feels clarifying. The lovely sweet rose and powder fragrance is gorgeous! This product has no conditioning qualities, but that’s OK. I’ve already finished one of these shampoos a little while ago – this is my 2nd bottle! 🙂

I’ve finally tried the shower gel as well. It has the same wonderful sweet rose and powder fragrance, and it doesn’t feel drying. I like it very much!

The eau de toilette roll-on is simply awesome! Again, it has the same sweet rose and powder fragrance as the shampoo and the shower gel, and I think the fragrance smells a lot more sophisticated than what you’d expect from such a cheap item. And the roll-on looks great in my cosmetic bag! 🙂

Wonder Woman Shower Gel and 2in1 Shampoo & Conditioner are available as 100ml in a set. The Eau De Toilette is available as 8ml roll-on. I paid 50p each (clearance). I’ve also seen a full-size Wonder Woman fragrance (same design, same manufacturer) for £14.99 at Superdrug. I think that was a 30ml bottle (but I’m not entirely sure).

Prada Infusion D’Iris Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today I’m reviewing Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette.

I’ve been wearing this fragrance a lot this spring and summer, and I wanted to review it before it’s finished.

This fragrance contains the following notes: iris, violet, heliotrope, cedar, galbanum and lily-of-the-valley.

What’s the fragrance like? It smells of iris root, violet, powder, clean laundry and spring. Despite the powdery notes, the fragrance has an overall fresh feel.

I think this is a great fragrance for spring and summer. When it’s over 30C, I prefer lemon and grapefruit scents. However, I think Infusion d’Iris wears really well on the warmest summer days. Awesome stuff, Prada!

Prada Infusion d’Iris Eau de Toilette is available as 50ml, 100ml and, apparently, even as 200ml!

Anna Sui Flight Of Fancy Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about Anna Sui‘s Flight Of Fancy Eau de Toilette. I’ve been wearing this fragrance on and off for over a year now, so I thought it’s time for a review!

Alrighty! This fragrance contains the following notes: litchi, lemon, yuzu (top notes), freesia, rose, magnolia (heart notes), and amber, musk and woods (base notes).

I think Flight Of Fancy is a wonderful summer fragrance. It smells of sunny lemons with a touch of freesia. It’s fresh, full of energy, summery, yellow and happy. If you’ve ever wanted a fragrance that’s a mix of D&G Light Blue (which is lemon-fresh) and J Lo Live (which is incredibly juicy), this is it!

Anna Sui‘s Flight Of Fancy Eau de Toilette is available as 30, 50 and 75ml Eau de Toilette. In addition, Anna Sui does seasonal gift sets with matching body products!

Thierry Mugler Alien Flora Futura

Hi there! Today’s post is about Thierry Mugler‘s Alien Flora Futura fragrance. I picked up the 30ml eau de toilette for £25 (clearance, House Of Fraser).

It appears that no two websites have the same information about this fragrance. Mugler Europe and Mugler USA list different notes, and a number of other sources lack credibility. However, some notes are listed considerably more often than others, and these notes are night-blooming cactus flower, white amber and sandalwood.

Alright, what’s the fragrance like? It’s… wow! It smells fresh, sweet, floral, pink and yellow, transparent, youthful and full of energy. It smells like magic, sunlight and happiness!

Thierry Mugler‘s Alien Flora Futura Eau De Toilette is available as 30ml for £42 and 60ml for £52. There aren’t too many online stores that still have the fragrance in stock. It appears that many online retailers were able to sell the fragrance at full price. However, I’m glad I swung by House Of Fraser the other day because I bagged myself a bargain! If you’d like to try this fragrance and there’s a department store near you… you know what to do! 🙂

100% Vegan & Cruelty-Free – Pacifica Island Vanilla Perfume

Hi there! Today’s post is about Pacifica’s Island Vanilla Perfume. I’ve already tried quite a few Pacifica products – some were good, some weren’t. So now I’m reviewing their vanilla fragrance!

But before we get to the actual review, let me say a few words about the brand. Pacifica is a company from Oregon, USA. They specialise in vegan and cruelty-free products. They sell body care products, candles, fragrances and cosmetics. If you’re in the UK, you can find Pacifica products at Holland & Barrett’s.

Onto the fragrance! Pacifica’s Island Vanilla is based on Tahitian vanilla – which is said to have fruity and floral nuances – and bourbon vanilla – the ultimate “sweet treat” vanilla.

I think this vanilla fragrance is really nice. It smells sweet and cuddly, and it has a youthful feel to it. It’s not the most sophisticated fragrance, but it’s pleasant and inoffensive. I also think it’s a reasonable (but not perfect) replacement for Yves Rocher’s stellar Bourbon Vanilla fragrance which seems to be out of stock almost all the time.

Pacifica’s Island Vanilla Perfume is available as 29ml spray and 10ml roll-on. Pacifica also offers vanilla-scented candles and body care products!

Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that I bought a little while ago (clearance) and that I’ve been wearing on and off for a few weeks now – Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic.

Alien Aqua Chic is a limited edition from 2013, and it contains the following notes: ginger and lemon verbena (top notes), freesia (heart note), as well as wood and amber (base notes).

What’s the fragrance like? It’s really nice. I like it! It’s a lighter version of the original Alien. It doesn’t seem to contain any jasmine, but it still has the typical Alien feel to it. I think the ginger and lemon verbena notes give the fragrance a lovely refreshing vibe, and the freesia note feels transparent and airy.

I think Thierry Mugler Alien Aqua Chic is a great spring and summer fragrance. It’s a limited edition, but it can still be found online. Just make sure you buy it from a reputable seller, OK? 🙂
