QVC UK TSV: Shay & Blue 4 Piece Fragrance Collection

If you’re a rose fragrance fan and you like your scents to be classic, uncomplicated and just the right side of feminine, Goya Black Rose is a perfume I’d highly recommend investigating.  I always love it when a fragrance matches up well with the bottle…

Fragrance Friday: Woman by Ralph Lauren

Woman by Ralph Lauren is the newest Lauren perfume, combining feminine fragrance notes with a masculine hip-flask-style bottle, it’s a fragrance designed to be strong and just a touch too feminine to be described as gender-free.  Expect a scent that’s punchy and vibrant, but that…

Fragrance Friday: By Invitation Rose Gold by Michael Buble

I definitely wouldn’t call myself a fragrance snob, as some of my all-time favourites are from high street brands, but I do get a bit funny about celebrity fragrances – in fact I’m like that with all celebrity beauty ranges, there’s just something about them…

Fragrance Friday: Philosophy Pure Grace Nude Rose and Amazing Grace Ballet Rose

Fragrance Friday: The Collection by Yardley London
