Bonbon Couture

Viktor & Rolf are renowned for their perfumes and their newest perfume is certainly up my top 3. Bonbon Couture* is the newest release which comes out on September 14th. If you love the original bonbon, I am certain that you are going to love Bonbon Couture. I was so incredibly lucky and grateful (still cant believe it) to be sent Bonbon Couture as a PR package to review on my blog. This post is a little bit too late, but life has just gotten in the way and so this post is late, but as they say, better late then never.

Within the package, came a leaflet explaining all about the fragrance and the scents used to achieve it.  On the leaflet it said the following "The "Haute Couture" reinterpretation of Viktor & Rolf’s sweet Bonbon perfume from 2014, Bonbon Couture is said to be a more intensive, luxurious and stronger than the original. The fragrance opens with a juicy combination of mandarin, neroli oil and peach before transcending into a heart of orange blossom and Sambac jasmine, sweetened by a potent caramel note. The base is defined by a woody accord of sandalwood and patchouli, with vanilla and blonde tobacco." It's not what I was expecting when I first smelt it, but i loved it straight away. It's a sweet scent, but I think it has hints of muskiness and when it settles, it honesty becomes the nicest fragrance ever. The fragrance released back in September and is available from Selfridges

Overall, i love this fragrance and its become my new favourite scent. In my eyes, its appropriate for all seasons and it excites me in the morning when i know i can wear it. I hope you have enjoyed reading and have a lovely day!

Australian Adventure #1


So it's certainly been a long time since I've sat down and written a post. I can't say much has happened in the last 8 months, but life has had its ups and downs that's for sure. It's currently Sunday night and I was just thinking about my blog and how much I actually miss it. Although my blog hasn't been active for quite some time, I have thought about it so much and that I need to get back into it. There is one particular reason that I want to get back into not, not only because I miss it, but because next year, I'm embarking on the biggest journey I will probably ever take.

In exactly 194 days, I am going to be hoping over to my favourite place, Australia! I have decided to pack my life up in England for a year and head over to do the most typical, touristy thing ever and go backpacking. I don't really care how un-original and cliche it is. Ever since my last visit 11 or 12 years ago, I have also said I will move out there at some point in the future. I am going on my own, but my family will be with me for the first 2 weeks, as my cousin is getting married, then i will be on my own to explore the land. I want document my adventure as i go along and potentially film it, but I'm not to sure on that one yet!

So yeah, quick little update for you. My life is pretty much the same as it was back at Christmas i would say. I am going to continue on with my blog and of course, i am still obsessed with makeup, so expect lots of blogs and i want to get back into filming aswell, as i have realised how much i miss that!
Thank you for reading and don't forget to follow to see how planning my adventure is coming along!
