Goya Black Rose | A Romantic Fragrance

Usually when one talks about rose based fragrances, one tends to assume it is a scent meant for ladies of a certain age. It couldn't be farther from the truth. A number of perfume houses have fragrances with the exquisite rose scent and these are gaining a lot of popularity with ladies of all ages. Goya's Black Rose is one such excellent rose based fragrance. Black Rose was first launched in 1955 and was very popular in the 50-80s. In 2014, the scent was recreated from the original archived formula and the classic was brought back! I had not used the original version so I could not compare the relaunched version to the older one but let me tell you straight up, the newer version is exquisite - very youthful and stylish - like a beautiful bouquet of fragrant roses.

Summer Scents : Aqua Manda & Aqua Citra

Summer is almost here. And along with changes in the wardrobe, it is also time to try out some new scents for the warm season. When I think of summer scents what comes to my mind is the balmy sea breeze, sweet tropical fruits, an exotic bouquet of flowers and refreshing, zesty fragrances. Featured in today's post are two such fragrances that will delight your senses and are sure to be your go-to scents throughout summer.

I have been trying out two summer-y fragrances over the last few weeks - Aqua Manda and Aqua Citra - and love them. Both the scents were popular in the 60s and 70s and were relaunched a few years back with a modern appeal.

Monsoon Rose Gold Eau De Parfum

Monsoon Rose Gold Eau De Parfum


With top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents, a heart of rose, tuberose, Neroli and cyclamen and base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber, Monsoon Rose Gold is a romantic and delightful rose scent which has a delicate sweet element running throughout. It is deliciously sweet, fresh and perfect both for day or evening wear. The silage and longevity are both very good and I think it will work well for women of all ages.

Mary Kay's High Intensity Ocean Range

I have used a few products from Mary Kay and have loved them especially their Eau So Cute EDT which is a fun and floral scent (ideal for Summer). I was not aware (until recently) that Mary Kay also have a skin care and fragrance range for men. So, when I told Mr.H about it, he was quite excited to try out a couple of products from Mary Kay's High Intensity Ocean range.

The two products that Mr.H tried are the MK High Intensity Ocean Cologne Spray (£29.00) and MK High Intensity Ocean Hair and Body Wash (£12.00). Both the multitasking hair and body wash and the Cologne feature a fresh, citrus-marine scent.

Five Wonderful Scents Perfect for Summer

I love the transition of seasons. It brings along with it changes in natural scenery, changes in our wardrobe and also changes in the fragrances we wear. While some people tend to stick to their signature scents others switch it up depending on the season. I belong to the latter category. You could call me a fragrance butterfly as I change my perfume frequently - it depends on the season, my mood, outfit etc. Heat causes fragrances to project farther afield while also evaporating faster. So, my pick for Summers are scents that are lighter and with citrus or floral notes because these project well in the summer heat. Although we have had the odd downpour over the last couple of days, warmer climes are still around with temperatures set to reach 28 deg C next week. To help you pick some Summer fragrances, I have rounded up five amazing scents that are perfect for the current season.

Taking you on a floral journey : Artistry Flora Chic Eau de Parfum

When it comes to fragrances; I definitely love most of them - woody, citrus, florals, fresh etc. The only scents I do not like are the extremely sweet ones - the ones that smell like candy or those which have an artificial scent. Recently I tried a new fragrance from Artistry - the Flora Chic EDP and I loved it. I have used Artistry products earlier and have a positive connection with the brand and this new fragrance just made me love the brand even more.

Monsoon Rose Gold Perfume

Rose fragrances can be soft and powdery or sensuous and passionate or intense and mature. Whatever form they take on, I like them all, as I adore roses. Rose was my first initiation in to the world of fragrances and even today a lovely rose scent never fails to lift my spirits.

Featured today on the blog is Monsoon Rose Gold Perfume - a beautiful, rich scent that works wonderfully well as an Autumnal fragrance.

Fragrance Find : Landon Tyler Home Fragrances

Scented candles and other home fragrances can have a positive impact on your mood. I find that even looking at the glow of a candle can be very soothing and relaxing. Candles are a part of my daily life - whatever the season, I feel they are perfect for setting the mood and help you to relax at the end of the day.

I recently was introduced to Landon Tyler home fragrances. They are a new brand and their product range includes diffusers, single wick candles, triple wick candles and gift sets. I was sent two items from Landon Tyler - a 200g highly scented candle from the fragrance range 'Tuscan Garden' and a diffuser set from the range 'Blackberry Soufflé'.

Celebrate Spring With Crabtree & Evelyn's Rosewater Collection

Spring is here - warmer weather, longer days, flowers blooming (I love the sight of bluebells) and signs of new life everywhere. Everything is so happy and positive. The cheery season has put me in a 'Spring cleaning' mode and in addition to a mini overhaul at home, a beauty spring clean is also underway. Spring is all about floral and relaxing fragrances, I feel. So, I have turned to Crabtree & Evelyn’s classic Rosewater collection which perfectly captures the lush and romantic fragrance of Roses.

Deep Night EDT Set : A Festive Gift Set from Ghost

Christmas can be stressful if you do not plan well ahead in time. Whether it is planning the party, sorting out the food and drinks you are going to serve or buying presents for family and friends. You can save a lot of time and reduce stress if you have a plan on hand instead of rushing around at the last minute trying to get everything done.

When it comes to buying gifts, you need to keep a few things in mind. Make a shopping plan/list: who you are buying gifts for, what is your budget for each person and what sort of gift the receiver might like. It is easier said than done. But there are some items that make it to the category of well-received gifts. Fragrance is one of them. Most of us would agree that fragrances come in the top 5 gifts. If you know the kind of fragrances the receiver loves, you can gift them a perfume with those notes.

Ghost have launched many new Christmas gift sets and one of them is the Deep Night gift set that is sure to get pulses racing. Beautifully packaged, the gift set includes 30ml GHOST Deep Night EDT and 100ml body lotion. The fragrance has a deep, sensual signature combining vanilla, wood notes and Moonflower and is perfect for anyone who love a sophisticated, mysterious scent. This lovely gift set is sure to make someone very happy come Christmas morning.

Joan Collins Timeless Beauty : Body & Soul Collection (EDP & Fragrance Diffuser)

Oh, how I love fragrances! After skin care products, my next big passion is perfumes. I simply LOVE them. Although there are certain family of fragrances that I always fall back on, I do not desist from trying out new scents. I have no preferred or signature scents and enjoy experimenting with new fragrances.

I recently had the opportunity to try out the Joan Collins 'I Am Woman' Body & Soul Collection. Joan Collins needs no introduction. The actress is a beauty and glamour icon. But some of you may not know that she launched her own beauty range last year. According to Joan,
"the beauty range aims not just to inspire women, but to provide them with the tools to feel and be beautiful at any age."
