Hi there! Today’s post is about a new fragrance favourite of mine – Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette. I’ve wanted to try this fragrance for ages, but I didn’t want to spend money on another fragrance I might not like. However, when I placed an order a few months ago, this fragrance was a free gift with purchase. 😎
I’ve been wearing this fragrance a lot over the last 2 months, and I’m blown away. This is the most wonderful tropical fragrance one could imagine. It’s all about tiaré flowers with drops of ylang-ylang flower water and a touch of vanilla. It’s very creamy, and it smells much more expensive than it is. I would describe the fragrance as seductive, heavy and heady. However, it would still be perfect for the hottest summer days because it smells like a tropical holiday. 11 STARS!
Yves Rocher Monoï Eau Des Vahinés Eau De Toilette is available as 100ml eau de toilette. Yves Rocher does matching body products as well. I bought 3 more bottles of this fragrance, and I bought a few bottles of the matching body mist as well. I just don’t want to be without this amazing fragrance!

Hi there! Today’s post is about Yves Rocher Retropical Eau De Toilette. Retropical is a limited edition fragrance, and I bought it off someone for £10. What a bargain! And yes, I’m really pleased with myself! 🙂
Before we get to the actual review, let me tell you a little more about the fragrance. Retropical contains fruity and aquatic notes (top note), floral notes (heart note) and warm woody notes (base note). I would have loved to know the actual fruits, flowers and woods. But Yves Rocher wasn’t more specific. Ah well…
So what’s the fragrance really like? It’s the dreamiest blend of marzipan, oranges, bubblegum, honey and sunlight. It’s sweet (adult-sweet, NOT sugary), tropical, warm, cuddly, exotic and happy. It smells like… the most beautiful relaxing summer holiday. Well done, Yves Rocher!
Yves Rocher Retropical is a limited edition fragrance from 2013. You won’t find it in YR stores or on YR’s web site anymore. So if you’re interested in this fragrance, look online. I see YR’s older limited editions popping up on that auction web site all the time. 😉
