Exciting news! Yardley London have recently launched a new fragrance so I wanted to introduce this to you today..say hello to the English Honeysuckle fragrance..
Yardley London have a 250 year history of perfume, fine soaps and flourishing florals inspired by English flowers and gardens. I alway think of Yardley as a very classic and affordable range, yet the quality is fantastic and the scents are fun and pretty. I think my favourite is probably Daisy and English Rose.
They do a range of products to choose from including body sprays (just £6!), perfumes, body washes, soaps, lotions and even hand sanitiser. They have recently bought out a new scent which I wanted to chat about which is the English Honeysuckle. I don’t think I have any fragrance which focuses on this fragrant flower, and I was really intrigued to see how it would smell.
The Yardley English Honeysuckle scent is surprisingly fresh and uplifting. I though it would be too sweet for my taste but it’s really not. It is a fresh, light fragrance with bergamot and spicy black pepper top notes, balanced with the softness of honeysuckle, blending with a delicate, floral heart of jasmine that combines base notes of moss and patchouli with heliotrope and musk.
I think this could be my new favourite Yardley London fragrance of the range. It has that floral softness but it’s not too sweet…which I think could be those notes of moss and patchouli. It’s a really nice balance and it’s very wearable. I actually love the small body fragrance for when you are just doing day-to-day things and want to smell fresh and give yourself a bit of a re-fresh. It’s a great handbag addition and it’s not as full-on as the perfume but you have a little bit of a soft scent on you all day.
Who knew I would get back into these body fragrances 20 years on after the first time! Honestly, would recommend!
