After a late night at the gym, all I could think of was a very hot long bath… A little ‘me’ time to let the muscles relax and put all negativity aside – how unfit / slow / weak I am if compared to others… Water is my element. I could bathe and shower for ages! I could swim in lakes and swimming pools, and paddle in the sea without ever getting bored… It is such a mood booster! Water helps me to get back to my own self…
So, this late night when the moon is bright like never before, I reached for My Burberry shower oil. To be honest, I don’t like those annoying kind of shower gels which fragrance never goes away.. But putting My Burberry on, with the thought that I’ll be heading to bed with a lovely scent on my skin, was a totally different story because this time I was also spraying a little of the perfume itself. I received this lovely gift from my husband ages ago, and am so happy to be able to intensify this beautiful scent even more.
The scent of the shower oil has disappeared after an hour but it left the skin feeling so soft, rejuvenated, and happy. I spritzed a little bit of eau de toilette on the insides of my elbows and the aroma is still gently lingering when I put my nose up close. This sweet creamy scent is so perfect for a late night…
My Burberry shower oil + eau de toilette .. what a lovely way to end the day…
Please welcome a new member of my perfume family – Aromatics Elixir by Clinique! 🙂
I am very happy with it 🙂 and even if it is eau de toilette, the longevity is fantastic. It does need a little bit of time to settle on my skin, while something cold and herbal (maybe it is the note of chamomile?) evaporates… But nonetheless, I love this smooth, woody, earthy perfume on me… And am very glad with this addition to the collection 🙂
I placed it in the picture together with Opium (EDP, by YSL) as they are quite similar to me.
Just a quick note to folks traveling to / near Dublin – House of Fraser store in Dundrum Town Centre (exit 13 off M50) has a very few sales items left, including Christmas gift boxes. But the ones I would recommend you to seek and grab while they’re still there are Annick Goutal and Serge Lutens perfumes. Majority – half price.
The store is discounting the older version of Serge Lutens fragrances, all 50ml, price raging between 70 – 80 euros.
From Annick Goutal range I noticed a couple of bottles from Les Absolus collection, priced at approx. 100 euros for 100 ml (down from 200 euros), also some other of her bottles, like Petite Cherie, Songes, Sables.
Anyone still on the look out for these beauties, anyone collecting, or really craving for a true niche perfume experience that you maybe couldn’t afford before? Head to Dundrum shopping centre! Once they’re gone – they’re gone!
P.S. Prices are correct at the time of writing the blog post, 18 January, 2018.
Today I am very happy to share with you another new discovery from Latvia – cosmetics brand Stenders. I stumbled across their store when just casually walking around a shopping center Galerija Centrs, located just at the heart of the old town of Riga.
