Given the weekend that’s in it, let’s talk chocolate. Not the edible kind, but the fragrant kind. Gourmand fragrances were made popular in the 1990’s and is all about edible notes. Think Vanilla, Caramel, Toffee, Candy Floss, Marshmallows and of course chocolate.
Two of my favourite things in life are fragrance and coffee so it’s no surprise that I am a fan of Yves Saint Laurent’s Black Opium Range. The Eau de Parfum was released in 2014, the Eau de Toilette in 2015 and this year sees the release of the Nuit Blanche referring to the annual Arts and Culture festival held annually in Paris.
Following on from the success of their fragrance, Prodigieux Le Parfum, French brand Nuxe are this month launching the new Relaxing Fragrant Water in Ireland. Classed as part of their body range, this is a scented fine mist which is both relaxing and refreshing in equal measure.
