Yardley Fragrance Body Mist

By Monday, July 17, 2017 , , , , , , , ,

While I love a nice floral fragrance, I find they can get a little heavy and strong a little fast, especially in the summer time. This is why in the summer I look for body mists, they are light, refreshing, you can go to town spraying them and never feel like you're going to offend anyone. Plus they are great to spray on clothing or hair that might need a little refreshing in the scent department (post gym hair anyone?).

Yardley has an amazing line of floral scented body care products, and while the pefrumes are great, their body mists are what I am using every day right now.

English Rose:
ENGLISH ROSE is a refreshing, light floral fragrance with sparkling citrus and rose top notes and a heart subtly combining rosebud, magnolia, violet and cassis with warm woody notes, whilst patchouli and musk add velvety tones to the base. Exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $9.99

I remember loving to smell my mothers yellow roses in our garden as a kid, for some reason that flower brings me more joy then any other. While rose is a wonderful scent I adore any time of year, in the summer I like something with a bit more complexity then straight up rose. The citrus, magnolia, violet and cassis make it might lighter while the woody notes mixed with patchouli and musk add more depth and complexity. It definitely smells amazing and more my style then just plain old rose or rose water. It is a classic but with a slight twist and I love it for that reason.

Lily of the Valley:

LILY OF THE VALLEY is a light, feminine, white floral fragrance with fruity pear accords in the top note and a beautiful floral bouquet heart that blends lily of the valley and freesia, enhanced with a pretty, musk base. Fresh and vibrant. Exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $9.99.
Lily of the Valley is one of those flowers I always see but never knew what it was. The cute little bells that hang in the spring time make my garden area so fairy tale like. Lily of the Valley smells amazing on its own, but the blend in this fragrance mist takes makes it much more wearable for me everyday. Pear and the lily scent blend so well together you would never know it wasn't a natural combination. I really love this scent on days that I am feeling like I need a bit of a bright scent, while keeping it in the floral family.


ENGLISH LAVENDER is a beautifully fresh, light, elegant fragrance with top notes of bergamot and clary sage and a heart of calming English lavender subtly combining notes of eucalyptus, geranium, jasmine, chamomile and violet, enhanced with deeper, warm base notes of wood, vanilla and patchouli. Exclusively available at Shoppers Drug Mart for $9.99. 
Lavender to me is a favourite flower. I have a satchel of the flowers in my office hanging by a window to make it smell fresh. I also love a nice lavender shortbread cookie (or anything sweet with it). That being said, lavender is traditionally very heavy scent that is associated with night time. This fragrance has a blend of lots of my favourite scents (jasmine, chamomile, violet to say a few), that help lighten it up,  but they all are super calming scents. That being said this is my favourite night time scent, after a nice evening bath I love to spray this all over myself and then my linens to get me in the right mid set for bed. Would I wear this in the day time, of course, but I really love the association with it and my nighttime routine, and I kind of don't want to throw that off by wearing it during the day.

Overall these are great takes on classic floral scents while making them a little bit more complex and wearable. As I said, I love to mist myself, my clothes and hair with them for a light summer time appropriate level of fragrance that isn't going to be overwhelming during the warmer weather.
