It's early Summer, and late Spring. You're lying in the grass in your prettiest summer dress, drinking pimms and eating strawberries and plucking daisies from the ground exclaiming "he loves me! he loves me not. he loves me!" as you gently pull each intricate white petal from the daisy's vibrant yellow core.
You're in England, of course.
The Royal wedding is close approaching, and I, being a huge ambassador for anything British, am overjoyed, and can't wait to see it all unfold. There's a lot of Wedding tat out there. Oh man, a lot. But there is also a sweet, British, and feminine alternative offering from Yardley London - embracing everything that is our own English Rose - Kate Middleton. Our future Princess.
There are three products in the Royal English Daisy range, there's a 50ml Eau de Toilette, a 75ml Body Spray and a Moisturising Body Lotion.
The scent is a very true floral scent, quite soft, with earthy tones. It smells so fresh and quite natural actually. I'm really enjoying it, it seems to linger all day and it's just a very summery, pleasant girly smell.
My favourite is the perfume, and I love the body lotion too. I used the body lotion after the shower and then popped the perfume on and it helped the smell linger on my skin for much longer. I loved the smell of them combined and it's becoming one of my favourite scents.
It's so hard to describe a scent online as you can't even swatch it or really build up a picture so I urge you to pop into Boots from mid March and check your Yardley London stand and have a sniff yourself, I think youll be as pleasantly surprised as I was.
When it comes to perfume, i'm usually a sucker for outrageous bottles, or cool and hip brands. This isn't the type of thing i'd pick at all, and i'm really glad I got the chance to review it, as it's become my little favourite scent and it's so unusual that i'm getting compliments from people who haven't smelt it before.
The products are really reasonably priced too, with the Body Spray retailing at only £2.49, the Perfume at £9.99 and the Lotion at £5.95, i think this is one bit of the Royal Wedding us ladies can really enjoy.
What do you think of this range? Is it subtle enough to be a lovely tribute to the future Princess or are you not buying into the theme at all? Will you be purchasing anything from this range?
Lots of love, Zozo xxxxx
