Face masks have always been popular, but right now everyone is ALL about them, and that includes me. I bloody love them and own too many (not a thing); I like to apply 3-4 different masks a week. I know it sounds like overkill, but don't worry, they each serve a different purpose e.g. hydration, brightening, purifying and brightening. I use a range of brands, but some of my ride or die, holy grail, hands-down favourite face masks are from Kiehl's- check out my thoughts on each precious product below!
It should be clear to most of you guys by now that I am officially a fragrance addict. I just LOVE them, and they're by far one of my favourite beauty products to talk about. I have a few perfumes that I'm obsessed with, some that I love, and some that I like (I tend to give away the ones that aren't to my taste). The latest release from Guerlain, Black Perfecto by La Petite Robe Noire, falls straight into the "obsessed with" category- I am CRAZY about it. when I'm wearing it, I can't stop sniffing myself like a creep. I apply it twice a day- not because I need to, the perfume's longevity is second to none- but because I WANT to. I must. Want to know more? Let's go!
Okay- so the category (or main accord, if we're being technical) that Black Perfecto falls under is sweet/fruity. Which normally is not my vibe...but...I love it! The top notes are black tea, almond, and sour cherry; the middles notes are rose and licorice; and it has base notes of tonka bean, patchouli, leather and black musk. This combination makes the fragrance super sexy, dark, edgy, and beautifully unique. When I wear it, I feel like all of those things x100 even though I am none of them- this is sorcery!
I think that most people would be inclined to use Black Perfecto for an evening perfume- but if you love it as much as I do, you'll find yourself wanting to wear it allllll the time. As mentioned above, it lasts amazingly well on the skin, with easily eight hours worth of wear. Available in a 50ml and 100ml (both EDP), the bottle is gloriously sexy- I mean, LOOK at it. You'll be able to find these exclusively at Guerlain counters very soon (if not by the time his post is published)- but I kind of have to warn you, I'm planning on buying every bottle ever made. So you'll have to be quick ;)
I often find that when the seasons change, I feel the need to change up my go-to fragrance. In summer, I tend to wear crisp, white floral scents...whereas in winter, I prefer something a little warmer and cosier! Like a great big hug in a bottle- I don't think that's a big ask ;) I was the sent the brand new perfume from L'Occitane, Terre de Lumiere, and it is seriously ticking all the boxes.
The latest fragrance from L'Occitane falls into the gourmand aromatic category- one that I know is very popular with MUO members! Terre de Lumiere contains top notes of bergamot, pink pepper and ambrette; middle notes of lavender and honey; and base notes of tonka bean, musk, almond and acacia- it's a complete feast for the senses! It actually reminded me a little of Chanel Coco Mademoiselle- which is no mean feat- and I can see myself wearing this over and over during the cooler months. It's just so creamy and rich!
Terre de Lumiere Eau de Parfum is available in store now in either a 50ml size, or 90ml. The range also includes a Beautifying Body Lotion, a Shower Gel, a Radiant Balm (richer than the lotion, with an iridescent sheen) and a Perfumed Soap. I'm a huge fan of layering fragrances- it makes them last so much longer, and truly makes a perfume your own! The L'Occitane stores are always a dream to visit, so make sure you pop in and try this fragrance...or if I've sold you already- you can buy it online here- get ready to fall in love with your next signature scent!
