Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that I’ve been wearing on and off for a few months now – Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk EdP.

On Lucy B.’s website, the fragrance is described as a dreamy and tender oriental fragrance with lotus and watery musk (top note), musky rose petals (heart note), and amber and precious woods (base note).

I’m not a big fan of strong lotus fragrances, so I’m happy to report that the lotus note in this fragrance is very short-lived.

This fragrance is all about clean musk – it’s even cleaner than J Lo’s original Glow – and it has watery, airy and candied hues. It’s really beautiful!

Lucy B. Royal Water Lotus & Vanilla Musk EdP is available as 60ml. I paid £9.99 at TK Maxx. A total bargain! 🥰

Yves Rocher Collection Été

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance I’ve been using on and off since April or May – Yves Rocher Collection Été. This limited edition fragrance contains the following notes: bergamot, mandarin, lemon, lemon blossom and woody notes.

I think YR Collection Été is a very beautiful summer fragrance. It bursts with citrus freshness, but it also has a sunny feel to it. It smells like a relaxing holiday. 😍 If I were to assign a colour to this fragrance, it would be pastel yellow.

I’m enjoying this fragrance quite a bit, and I can definitely see myself finishing it this summer! Yves Rocher Collection Été is a limited edition fragrance. It’s available as 75ml.

Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist.

This body mist contains a number of moisturising ingredients, such as glycerin, castor oil and aloe leaf juice. It also contains flower extracts of exotic Tahitian gardenias!

I’ve been using this body mist on and off for a little while, and I love it! It has the most wonderful gardenia fragrance one could imagine. It’s warm, creamy, but it also feels transparent. This body mist is lovely as a spring and summer fragrance!

This body mist is also lightly hydrating. I like to spray it down my back – and it makes my skin super soft!

If you’re interested, Yves Rocher Monoï Lagoon Moisturizing Perfumed Body Mist is available as 125ml. I paid £10.99 for a pack of 3 bottles (special offer before Yves Rocher closed its UK online shop).

Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s short post is about one of the fragrances I’m using at the moment – Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette. This is a limited edition fragrance which is based on floral and aquatic notes.

This fragrance was a blind-buy, so I didn’t know what to expect. And since I’m not a big fan of fragrances with water lily or lotus, I was wondering whether I should have given this fragrance a pass…

Well, it turns out that this fragrance is actually quite alright. Whilst Jardin des Nymphes has a strong water lily feel to it, I do like it because, fortunately, it doesn’t have that smothering density that the overwhelming majority of aquatic fragrances have. Jardin des Nymphes feels light and airy, and I enjoy wearing it to the office.

Yves Rocher Jardin Des Nymphes Eau De Toilette is available as 75ml. It’s a limited edition from a while back, but it can still be found online.

Anna Sui Romantica Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about one of the many (!) fragrances that I’m enjoying at the moment – Anna Sui Romantica Eau de Toilette.

This fragrance contains the following notes: bergamot, mandarin, pomegranate and quince (top note), rose de mai, osmanthus, jasmine petals, orange blossom, water lily and peony (heart note), and white cedarwood, amber, musk and sandalwood (base note).

My first impression of Romantica is that it’s a sweet, pink lemon fragrance – it’s lively, energetic, youthful, fresh and summery. The lemoney notes evaporate after a few minutes, and the fragrance becomes more floral. However, the sweet, pink aura of the fragrance remains. I’m not into pink scents, but Romantica is a very cute fragrance!

All in all, I like Romantica! I’m sure this fragrance is aimed at younger women, but I do enjoy it. I might even repurchase it once I’ve finished this bottle.

Anna Sui Romantica Eau De Toilette is available as 30ml, 50ml and 75ml Eau de Toilette. I paid £14.99 for the 30ml bottle. If you’re interested, I’ve seen the 50ml bottle for only £13.50 at The Fragrance Shop just 2 days ago!

Calvin Klein CK IN 2 U Eau De Toilette

Hi there! Today’s post is about my current office fragrance – Calvin Klein CK IN 2 U Eau de Toilette.

This fragrance contains the following notes: grapefruit and bergamot (top note), orchid and white cactus (heart note) as well as amber, red cedar and vanilla (base notes).

How’s the fragrance? I think it’s lovely! It smells like lemon and vanilla – it’s a rather simple fragrance, and I’m also sure that it’s aimed at younger women, but I don’t care! I like the youthful and cuddly scent very much!

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this fragrance. Please do give it a sniff next time you’re shopping for a new perfume!

Calvin Klein CK IN 2 U Eau de Toilette is available as 50ml, 100ml and 150ml. I’ve got a 150ml bottle, and I paid about £20.
