I bet you thought Rose scents are for nanas. Or something you buy for your elderly neighbour for Christmas.
I thought so too, but I take it back.
I came home from work to a huge box with: Happy Mother’s Day from the Body Shop. It contained some beautiful products of the new British Rose Body Care Range and the most STUNNING fresh flower crown!
I am a fan of The Body Shop, always have been. Cruelty free, affordable, and a fantastic range. The Body Butters are my favourites, the make up is great and always good for finding a gift for that hard to buy for person.
I am not usually a fan of floral fragrances, but The Body Shop’s new British Rose Body Care Range is absolutely lovely. They have successfully taken a classic scent and put a modern twist on it. Soft and feminine, but not sweet and cloying. It is fresh, it is floral but with a clean edge.
The English Roses for the new British Rose Range are grown at an environmental award winning farm in the English Countryside. They are then hand picked, air dried and essence is then extracted onsite.
Pretty impressive. Oh and England. Your rose farmers are pretty impressive too. (read HOT) Lee can prune my rose bushes anytime at all
Here is what I received:
I spritz this quite liberally, because it is lovely and light. It lingers for a couple of hours but can be extended by layering your fragrance with the shower gel or soap, and body lotion. It is fresh, sparkling even and not at all sweet.
Very light moisturiser, instantly absorbed. More a milk, rather than a lotion. It contains faint light reflecting particles to give a slight glow to the skin. Perfect underneath the Eau de Toilette for fragrance layering
This actually has the strongest scent of the body products I received. A delicious gel with real rose petals, and fine pieces of walnut shell left my skin supersoft and oh so fragranced. One of my faves.
I love the Body Shop hand creams, and I knew I was going to love this. Leaves my hands lovely and soft and beautifully fragranced. Yep. love this one too.
Definitely a beautiful addition to The Body Shop Collections. There is a make up collection within this range too and I think I will treat myself to the palette. It looks amazing!
Will I buy these again? Yes! I never saw myself as a rose scented lady, but I really like this. So far, the body scrub gel is my favourite. With Winter coming up, this will help keep the dryness at bay. My skin will be as soft as rose petals…
This is definitely not a NANA range. It is soft, romantic and fresh and for someone that doesn’t like sweet floral fragrances (MOI) I am happy to report: I like this!
Is this a fragrance that appeals to you?
