Hope all is well. As I didn’t get a chance to in January, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you everyone a Happy New Year (better late than never eh!) It’s hard to believe we are in the middle of February already but I hope you had a great start to the year, I have a very good feeling about 2020!
Valentine’s Day is only around the corner and I thought it would be fit to do a little post with some gift ideas. I have included everything from skincare to make-up and perfume and if you are like me with no one to buy you anything (violins please), then go out and treat yourself to something nice because I certainly intend to!
First up we have skincare and I have included a few Clarins products due to the fantastic offers you will see above in the poster.

Christian Dior Miss Dior Rose N’Roses €69.95
Miss Dior Rose N’Roses is a profusion of fresh vibrant florality, vivified by citrusy dew. This sparkling composition and sensation of fresh and colourful Grasse Rose petals immediately sweeps you away to an endless field of blooming roses. Absolutes and essences of vibrant Grasse and Damascus Rose colour the composition while the fruity and juicy notes of Bergamot and Mandarin, aide the citrusy, minty and incisive essence of Geranium, which gives this scent its vibrancy. White musk featured in the base brightens the scent and accentuates the heart of roses.
Yves Saint Laurent Libre €59.95
Yves Saint Laurent Libre is floral feminine fragrance with an unambiguous twist. Launched in 2019, this statement fragrance is a celebration of freedom and represents those who live by their own rules.

A strong, daring unforgettable scent.
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire €49.95
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Empire is an ultra-cheeky floral fruity feminine chypre that blends sophisticated fruity sweetness with a smooth cognac accord. The fragrance composition brings two opposite accords to intertwine in unison, the ultra bright magnolia blossom accord infused with cognac, which creates a highly addictive and sexy composition. Other featured accords are creamy notes of patchouli, orange blossom, candied currants, sweet orange, osmanthus and mirabelle plum which all lend in creating a moreish, slightly heady and intoxicating feel. The outcome is a syrupy floral perfume that promises to turn heads. A truely deliciously seductive luxurious insolent fragrance.
Carolina Herrera Bad Boy €59.95
Caroline Herrera Bad Boy is the new masculine fragrance for 2020. This powerful and sophisticated scent is an ode to the rebel man who fights for his principles and is secure in his own identity. An oriental aromatic fragrance in which opposites are drawn into each other, featuring the luminosity of sage, green bergamot and pepper, blended with the sensual darkness and obscurity of tonka beans, cocoa and amber wood.

A rebelliousness and seductive scent that will give you a jolt!
