 GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca Eau de Toilette Spray 75ml
GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca Eau de Toilette Spray 75ml
Swathe the senses in verdant greenery with the GUERLAIN Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca Eau de Toilette Spray, a floral citrus women's fragrance with creamy facets. The Nerolia Bianca fragrance transports you to a new facet of the Aqua Allegoria universe: a vital garden, where orange trees grow in abundance under the warm Mediterranean sun. Resting beneath the shady leaves, the serene scent envelops you, creating the perfect sense of calm. Inspired by the vigour of an orange tree in the midst of a beautiful garden, Nerolia Bianca encompasses the bitter orange fruit, the voluptuous orange blossom flower, plus the twig and the leaf for a faithful interpretation of an enchanted arbour. Top Notes: Bitter Orange, Petitgrain, Peppermint Heart Notes: Neroli Essence, Orange Blossom Absolute, Ylang-Ylang Base Notes: White Musks, White Amber, Cedarwood

This is a beautiful soft fragrance, and if you love orange blossom, you'll love this. Ideal for day, but a bit too light for me for evening. A good sized bottle too, and well priced.

Just what's needed for dry skin around the eyes. Easy to apply, and quite rich for a eye balm. I use this at night as a teense bit rich for the day, for me. I love all Clarins products, and this doesn't disappoint.

 Daniel Sandler Baby Jet Mascara 4.5ml Black
Daniel Sandler Baby Jet Mascara 4.5ml Black
Bring all of your lashes out to play with the Daniel Sandler Baby Jet Mascara, a little mascara that makes a big impact! There's no excuse to miss those little lashes anymore, as Baby Jet's micro-fine brush grabs each and every one to elongate and defins them, bringing them to their full potential. The glossy and intensely black formulation makes for especially luscious lashes that are perfect for making a flutter in the daytime. Daniel says: "If you slightly wiggle the mascara brush from the lash to the tips, they'll look even thicker. Gently bend the brush 30 degrees to help application and get a true pro finish." Hypoallergenic.

This really is a good mascara, and the slimline brush a great idea. My eyesight not being 100%, using a fat brush blocks my line of vision, and mascara ends up being everywhere except where it should be. This brush is fabulous, it not only gets the mascara onto the lashes in the inner corners, but the lower lashes look more defined as well. I do the 'wiggling' bit that Daniel suggested, and it really works. Makes my lashes look thicker and longer. A great product.

 Iris Nobile Eau de Toilette Spray
Iris Nobile Eau de Toilette Spray
A lighter interpretation of the luminous Iris Nobile fragrance that combines the discreet elegance of floral notes with a refined chypre accord, gradually revealing it's sensual, discreet and precious notes. A sensation of vibrant vitality bestowed by a great transparent floral fragrance. Tingling notes of bergamot and star anise anticipate the noble fascination of the iris and the refined, discreet elegance of cedar flower and orange blossom. Soft, velvety notes of ambrette crystals and an infusion of vanilla close this sophisticated, discreet fragrance with a unique sillage. Top: Bergamot, Orange, Mandarin, Iris, Star Anise Heart: Mimose, Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Hibiscus. Base: Amber, Vanilla.

If Escentual hadn't put a sample of this in with a previous order, I probably wouldn't have thought twice. But I'm so glad they did, because I adore this. It's ever so slightly sweet, but with flowery and spicy notes which last for hours. Gorgeous. Next time I may splash out and buy the Eau de Parfum.

Captivating and voluptuous, the Jean Paul Gaultier Classique Eau de Parfum is a legendary femme fatale. The supremely seductive oriental floral fragrance opens with a romantic note of rose, velvety and sweet. In the heart, the warmth of orange blossom creates a solar impression, before the creaminess of vanilla caresses the skin. The Eau de Parfum is a richer version of Classique with a higher concentration of perfume oils than its Eau de Toilette counterpart, ensuring a long-lasting fragrance. Our Fragrance Expert says: "Released in 1993 simply as "Jean Paul Gaultier" Classique is a voluptuous and buxom floral oriental with notes of rose, orange blossom and vanilla. The perfume is a contemporary twist on a classic style, with a gauche spirit that epitomises all that is Jean Paul Gaultier - naughty but nice." Top Notes: Rose Heart Notes: Orange Blossom Base Notes: Vanilla

A lovely feminine fragrance, and for an Eau de Parfum, not too heavy. A beautiful mixture of floral and oriental musk. And what a gorgeously shaped bottle. One of my favourites.

I love the fragrance of all the La Source products, they remind me of being near the sea. This is a good hand wash, as it doesn't dry out my hands. It lathers well which is great because I live in a 'hard water' area. With some hand washes there's hardly a bubble in sight, but this is great.

I don't have a particularly dry or sensitive skin, but some body washes for some reason make the skin on my elbows, knees and ankles itch like mad. This one doesn't do that. I guess it's probably to do with the Aloe. I love the fragrance, it's just like being beside the sea. It's gentle and effective and yay no itching.

I've used this for years now, and it's the most effective treatment oil I've used. I've tried others of course, but they're not a patch on Clarins. It's easy to apply, has a gorgeous fragrance, and a little goes a very long way. My skin in the morning feels really soft and supple. A great product and with Escentual as always, an amazing price.

This is as described, a lovely summer fragrance. It's light, refreshing, and beautiful, but still has a hint of the heady scent of the original Classique. The bottle is stunning. For those who prefer something lighter for day time use, this is for you.

I use the La Source hand products, and based on that I've given it 5 stars. This kit I bought especially for a friend who is an avid gardener, and has always got her hands in dirt and other yucky stuff gardeners get their hands into. Sometimes her hands look an absolute fright, so in order to get her to do something about them, I've got her this kit. Hopefully she'll love it as much as I love the La Source.
