Biotherm Eau Soleil Perfume

Biotherm Eau Soleil Perfume

Biotherm is a go-to for skin care products, but I would never have thought of them for perfume. Actually, I didn’t even know that they made perfumes too until I got this one. In my mind, they are the moisturizer and face wash company.

From the name to the colourful bottle, there was never any question that this was going to be a very summery scent. It even contains non-photosensitive ingredients, so that it doesn’t react with the sun and cause burns. See, they are always thinking about how to protect your skin. It’s really amazing actually.

The scent is all about citrus. It’s a summery, fresh citrus explosion in a bottle. It’s a really refreshing smell to wear. It’s the best on rainy days to brighten your mood. Something about the smell just makes you feel a bit better.

I wouldn’t want to wear this perfume every day. It’s never going to be my signature scent. But it’s a fun different smell and pick-me-up when I have the blues.

Avon Luck For Her

Avon has a great reputation for releasing amazing perfumes including Halle Berry’s and Fergie’s bestselling scents. The new perfume, which features Maria Sharapova in the ads, is for the woman who is already lucky in life and love.

The notes on the perfume include bergamot, red berries and mandarin with night flowers and sandalwood. It’s strange though because to my nose, all I get is a strong smell of warm vanilla. Vanilla isn’t even listed as one of the ingredients, but when I spray it all I get is enveloped in a rich vanilla scent. I have a love hate relationship with vanilla. Sometimes I find it very relaxing and comforting, but some varieties of the smell can be overwhelming to me. This perfume is pretty overwhelming when I first spray it, but it gets a little better to me as it settles into my skin.

I also used the body lotion and bath gel and the smell is much more subtle. I could get more of the other notes in the shower gel and body lotion.

When I wore Luck to work, I have to say I got many compliments about the scent. As I walked past people’s desks they would ask me what I was wearing.

If you are feeling lucky and love the smell of vanilla, maybe this is the scent for you.

Philosophy Sunshine Grace Review

PhilosophySunshineGrace
Spring is supposedly on it’s way. But if you can’t wait for warmer weather the scent of Philosophy’s Sunshine Grace will help you get there a little bit sooner. Sunshine Grace really does smell like summer; a little flowery, a little citrusy and a little like laundry drying outside. I’ve tried the firming body emulsion and it goes on smoothly, makes your skin feel really soft and the scent lasts a really long time.

If you need a little summer in your life before the snow melts, Sunshine Grace is definitely the way to go.
