Have yourself a very fragrant Christmas...

Under a week to go til 'Chrizzi Day' as my Mum calls it (cringe!). I am rather excited! No school, lots of food, presents and a chance to see my family - what more could I want?

I was very excited when I received my Christmas presents from my friends last week. I had planned to save all my presents for Christmas Day but somehow, after being given the first few, that plan went out of the window and I opened almost all of them on the day I was given them!

I have decided that as most are fashion or beauty related, over Christmas, I will be blogging about a few of my favourites so that you can see what I recieved and also so that I can rave about any great products.

As it's Christmas, I've spent the last few days (okay - weeks...) singing along to various festive songs and today, I thought I'd sing the praises of The Body Shop's Love Etc Fragrance Duo I was given.
The Body Shop says: "Notes of pear, neroli, bergamot - combine to create the fragrant top notes. provide the initial scent of the fragrance. Notes of jasmine, heliotrope, lily of the valley - combine to create the middle notes that vibrate across the fragrance. are the heart notes of the fragrance. Notes of vanilla, sandalwood, creamy musk - combine to create the base notes of the fragrance. tend to linger on the skin longer than the other notes."

And I would say, in much simpler terms, after a few squirts, the perfume seems quite sweet and zingy but also slightly musky. Being an eau de parfum it is a much stronger scent than an eau de toilette but it is still light and not too overpowering. The large bottle of body wash also smells faintly of the perfume but I am yet to try it. Having never tried a Body Shop perfume, I am not exactly sure what to make of it yet but I will tell you all more once I have worn the perfume for a few days and have had a good scrub up with the body wash! The fragrance bottle is smart and simple and I love the cute box it comes in. A friend also told me that the alcohol base used to create the perfume is made from fair-trade, organic ingredients...

Have you tried any of the Love Etc products? If so, what do you make of them?
