A soothing and thick moisturiser that really does butter up your body as it gives the illusion of silky skin. The scent has nutty, creamy notes and it lingers on your body for days. What more could you want than a product which is going to help nourish your skin, as well as make you smell great for days on end? The same scent also defines other products like shower creams, exfoliators and soaps.

A beautiful spray edition for springtime. The fragrance is very light, which is perfect for warmer weather. It is a fruity scent infused with notes of strawberries, amber and peony. Smother your body in the matching shower gel or body lotion, and spray with the eau de toilette for a longer-lasting smell.

Especially during a time when you are washing and sanitising your hands more than ever, you need to remember to take care of them. Hand sanitisers are known for drying out your skin and they can also cause blisters in some cases. Therefore, The Body Shop hand creams are going to be a lifesaver, making a perfect balance with soaps, gels and sanitisers. These hand creams come in various scents, so you have many options, whether to match with your existing scent or to try something new.

A Royal Scent Of Approval

Fit For A Princess, the L.K.Bennett Debut Fragrance

The Duchess of Cambridge is known to be an advocate of British Heritage brand L.K.Bennett, selling out their dresses wherever she goes. Now in an exciting move, the brand has announced its first ever foray into fragrance – Signature.

The wonderfully complex fragrance opens with hypnotic top notes of citrus, pepper and rhubarb. Heart notes of rose, jasmine and ylang ylang add a floral flavour, with base notes of warm woods, dry amber, musk and vetiver adding an air of luxurious sophistication.

Summers’s Hottest Scent

Mark Earnshaw, Fragrance Expert at FAB Creations tips Rhubarb as the hottest note for spring.
 
How is rhubarb transformed into a fragrance note? The rhubarb note is an accord made of different ingredients. It varies from Perfumers to Perfumers. For example, in the case of the brand new L.K. Bennett fragrance, Signature, the nose used a combination of raw material to focus on the fruity and juicy character of Rhubarb.

How would you describe the note – is it fresh, sweet, musky? The rhubarb note is fresh with a fruity facet.

Has it been used in fragrances previously? Rhubarb has been very trendy in Fine Fragrance in the last couple of years, this season we will see it used by a wider array of brands.

How did you discover it as a note and what drew your nose towards it? This note has been part of the Perfumers palette for years now even though it hasn’t been widely used until the last couple of years. It has a refreshing olfactive profile but it’s at the same time very complex. The fruity part of the note is what drew us in.

Is it used as a top, heart or base note? And why? It can be used as a top or middle note depending on the Perfumer interpretation. In our case it is used as a top note as the Perfumer wanted to focus on the fruity aspect with a grapefruit facet. It could be used in middle note if the creator wants more of a heavy/earthy note.

What other notes do you predict to be big for Spring 2018? We’ve identified Black Rice and other rice notes, Peruvian Cherry, honey and honeyed fruits, frozen fruits and sorbets, new greenness from pandan leaf and shiso leaf. Modern woods with fresh incense, leather and pepper.
