& Other Stories Ballet Improvisé EdP

I was just browsing and stumbled upon & Other Stories latest premium natural beauty range Paris Ateliér and further found a new perfume favorite.
/Jag kollade runt och snubblat på & Other Stories senaste premium naturlig kollektion Paris Ateliér och hittade en ny parfym favorit.

Apparently, & Other Stories collaborated with their French creative studio to create a capsule collection which is divided into different themes to represent a journey through France. The collection includes bath & shower products that are inspired by the coastline, body care inspired by the forests, hand & lip products inspired by Provence flora and fauna and perfumes that celebrate Paris. I was a bit taken by surprise of the fragrances so I wasnt able to take a deeper look at the full collection but if you want me to look into the capsule more, let me know in the comments!
/Tydligen har & Other Stories samarbetat med sin franska kreativa studio för att skapa en kapsel kollektion som är uppdelad i olika tema för att representera en resa genom Frankrike. Kollektionen innehåller bad- och duschprodukter som inspireras av kusten, kroppsvård inspirerad av skogarna, hand- och läppprodukter inspirerade av Provences flora och fauna och parfymer som firar Paris. Jag blev lite överraskad av dofterna så att jag inte kunde ta en djupare titt på hela kollektionen men om ni att jag kollar in på kapseln mer, hör av er i kommentarerna!

Otherwise, an important point is that the products feature active ingredients that are certified French in origin. The Fragrances for example are ca. 83-86% natural ingredients including French-grown sugar beets! There are 2 fragrances but the one I zoned in on was the sweeter Ballet Improvisé which reminds me of Bottega Venetta! It is a very romantic, sweet but sophisticated scent to it. Notes such as Lemon zest, White pepper, Violet, suede accord, patchouli and vanilla cream can be found in this one. Another interesting point I found out after the fact is that the fragrance was created by perfumer Jérôme Epinette who creates for Byredo and Atelier Cologne!
/Annars innehåller produkterna aktiva ingredienser som är certifierade franska i ursprung. Dofterna är ca 83-86% naturliga ingredienser inklusive Fransk-odlade sockerbetor! Det finns 2 dofter men den som jag zonade in på var den sötare Ballet Improvisé som påminner mig om Bottega Venetta! Det är en mycket romantisk, söt men sofistikerad doft. Toner som citronskal, vitpeppar, violett, suede accord, patchouli och vaniljkräm finns i denna. Jag fick reda på är att doften skapades av perfumeren Jérôme Epinette som skapar för Byredo och Atelier Cologne!

I love the scent and the black automiser bottle just makes me want it more!
/Jag älskar doften och själva flaskan gör att jag vill ha den ännu mer!

Have you scented perfumes from & Other Stories? What do you think of the capsule collection inspired by France?

WOW! Moschino Pink Fresh Couture

Just WOW! Thank you Alf Sörensen for the most beautiful press sample and my first unique delivery this year!

Moschino has come out with a new fragrance, Pink Fresh Couture (385kr/30ml) and it looks like the original Fresh scent but smells more floral! As you can see, mine came with a pink bucket, a pink cloth and a pink sponge… Seriously how cute?! Those who know me know that Im not much for pink but in this case I make an exception! SO cool!!

The fragrance includes notes of pink grapefruit, black currant, Lily of the valley. In the heart there is Rose, pink hyacint, and pomegranate and in the base some musk, ambroxa and cederwood. I love Ambroxa, it gives this scent a bit more warmth instead of just floral. 

This was seriously a surprise and I loved the pink bucket and accessories that came with the fragrance home to me! You can get a hold of this fragrance week 14 and can e found at Åhléns, Kicks, private perfumeries and a few places online. I love my missoni that I received earlier but this one is definitely making its way into my daily routine as the ambroxia scent is a favorite of mine!

/Jag fått världens rosa utskick ifrån Alf Sörensen och är sååå tacksam för denna överraskning! Doften är från Moschino och är Pink Fresh Couture (385kr/30ml). Den innehåller ros grapefrukt, svarata vinbär, liljekonvalj, granatäpple, rosa hyacint, ,ros, och sist i basen: cederträ, ambroxan och musk. Denna fina blommiga doft lanserar vecka 14 och hos Åhlens, kicks och några utvalda butiker och online affärer. Jag älskar min missoni som är också väldigt lätt blommigt men denna som innehåller ambroxan kommer också används mycket nu under våren!

New in from Jo Malone | Tuberose Angelica; White Jasmine & Mint

If you haven’t followed me awhile, I can tell you that I am a fanatic for finding new fragrances that I can mix and match! And while in London, I felt the urge to find a new signature scent. Who can resist a Jo Malone while in London!?

I couldn’t decide between a Cologne and a Cologne Intense so I chose one of each!

The first is Tuberose Angelica Cologne Intense. It was released in 2014 and is a floral scent. It has Angelica, tuberose and bases of amber and woody notes. This scent brings me back to my mom’s closet and it gives off a warm but sweet floral feeling that just feels classical and timeless but with that little bit of sensual touch.

The second scent is a Cologne in White Jasmine and Mint. Of course ANYTHING with Jasmine in it is a fragrance for me. The Jasmine flower is one that sits very well on my skin so having a White Jasmine scent with that stinging mint scent was a perfect spring/summer scent! This scent has been in their line since 2007 and has Jasmine, lily, orange blossom and rose with of course mint accords. It’s suppose to be inspired by a sunny morning of an English garden and it truly does smell exactly so for me too!

I can also just add that these two mixed together really messes with your senses! You want to smell something sweet but then comes the tang of mint and then you have the softeness of the florals. Beautiful. Absolutely beautiful.

Have you tried anything from Jo Malone? What are your favorite products or scents?

I think I am going to maybe try to get a hold of the Basil & Neroli Cologne scent…. The amazing sales girl sprayed it on the paper in the bag and I have scented it ALL THE WAY HOME to Sweden! She also sent me three minis of it too!

/

Om du inte har följt mig så kan jag säga att jag är en fanatiker för att hitta nya dofter som jag kan mixa och matcha! Och när jag var i London kände jag lusten att hitta en ny signatur doft. Vem kan motstå en Jo Malone när man är ändå i London!?

Jag kunde inte välja mellan en Cologne och en Cologne Intense så jag valde en av varje!

Den första är Tuberose Angelica Cologne Intense. Den släpptes 2014 och är en blommig doft. Den har Angelica, tuberos och baser av bärnsten och träiga noter. Denna doft drar mig tillbaka till min mammas garderob och det ger en varm men söt blommig känsla som bara känns klassisk och tidlös men med det lite sensuell touch.

Den andra doft är en Cologne in White Jasmine and Mint. Naturligtvis om en doft har Jasmine i det så är den en doft för mig. Jasmine är en som sitter grymt bra på min hud så här har vi en vit jasmin doft med mint som är perfekt till våren och sommaren! Denna doft har varit i deras serie sedan 2007 och har Jasmine, lilja, apelsinblomma och ros med mynta. Det är tänkt att vara inspireras av en solig morgon i en engelsk trädgård och det verkligen luktar precis så för mig också!

Jag kan också bara tillägga att dessa två blandas grymt bra och nästan leker med dina sinnen! Du vill lukta något sött men sedan kommer doften av mynta och sedan har du mjukhet av blommorna. Vackert. Absolut vackert!

Har du provat något ifrån Jo Malone? Vilka är dina favoritprodukter eller dofter?

Jag tror att jag kommer att kanske försöka få tag på Basil & Neroli Cologne…. Den fantastiska tjej som hjälpte mig sprutade den på inslagspappret i påsen och jag har doftat på den hela vägen hem till Sverige och även skickade hem några prover på den.

The Morning Dawn | The New Missoni EdT

missoni edt

I loved the Missoni Edp (495kr) that I got for Christmas but just as Spring starts to come, the new Missoni EdT is released! I received a beautiful bottle that is citrusy but floral but also woody. My favorite combo! In this fragrance has many ingredients in which include blood orange, pink pepper,  Nashi pear and water flowers. You can also find freesia, peony, rose water and heliotrope but also something called the Givaudan molecule rosyfolia! And in the base, some musk, white cedar and then the woody is from Georgywood accord.

missoni edt

The bottle is similar to the EdP but this time with swirls of orange and yellow but it still has the golden band to represent the famous Missoni fabric. I love the way the bottle looks, it reminds me of a beautiful sunrise and the fragrance itself is much cleaner than I thought it would be. You get a light airy feel when you first spritz it and then comes the warmth, just like the sunrise I described earlier.

I just received the bottle so of course I will continue to use it throughout the Spring!
Have you scented the Missoni EdP? What are your favorite Spring fragrances?
