Paco Rabanne Pure XS for Him & Her

Pure XS for her and him are the intoxicating new fragrances from Paco Rabanne.

Capturing the essence of excess in its purest state these fragrances embody strength, power and confidence.

Both vessels feature heavy, robust, multi faceted edges to capture the light and reflect the many different elements within.

Bold and beautiful the scents are as intoxicating as they are intriguing and offer a beautifully rich, warm and full bodied, sensual experience.

Pure XS for her is captured within a truly stunning bottle. The heavy, dusky pink glass bottle features a gold serpent elegantly draped around the neck of the bottle as if it were a piece of beautiful jewellery.

Evoking images of the garden of eden and life’s temptations, the serpent hints at the opulent oriental nectar within, a nectar which can cause obsession!

Top notes of seductive and erotic Ylang Ylang blend with exciting and delicious notes of salty-sweet popcorn and Ambrette Seed to create an unusual and addictive fragrance before base notes of soft, sweet vanilla and creamy sandalwood round off the scent leaving a heady and exhilarating fragrant experience.

It is an absolutely stunning scent. Distinctive, soft and deep it screams seduction and excess. It is absolutely the perfect scent for the dark, long winter days and festive indulgent evenings.

Pure XS for him mirrors the female scent perfectly, with equally seductive, romantic and charming notes.

Desire captured within a modern, dark navy bottle with gold accents Pure XS for him features a cool, contemporary snap lid allowing you to open the bottle one handed, adding to its intrigue and uniqueness.

Packaged in a luxurious velvet box it oozes decadence and luxury.

The fragrance offers an explosive freshness offset by a burning sensuality with opening notes of fresh green sap and white thyme. Heart notes of warm ginger and fragrant cinnamon create a spicy depth and abundance before base notes of soft vanilla and aromatic Myrrh wrap the entire scent in a bold and addictive warmth.

Seductive and addictive it is a gorgeous scent which is bold enough to allow the wearer to stand out from the crowd but it also so delicious it is guaranteed to appeal to a wide range of guys.

Both fragrances are available now and would make perfect gifts for fragrance lovers!

Paco Rabanne Pure XS for her costs £46 for 30ml, Paco Rabanne Pure XS for him costs £48 for 50ml and both are available now from The Fragrance Shop.

Ted Baker Sweet Treats Christmas Gift Sets

Ted Baker have got some absolutely beautiful fragrance gift sets available this Christmas!

All three of their exquisite sweet treat scents are available in a range of different sets to suit every taste and budget and each one is beautifully presented to dazzle and delight!

Available in either the Polly or Ella fragrance and encased within a bow-adorned gift box you’ll find the most adorable 30ml sweet treats fragrance alongside a bejewelled compact mirror.

I’ve yet to come across such a beautifully presented gift set- every element of the packaging is captivating and pretty, a real treat for your eyes.

The bottles are gorgeous and reflect the depth of the scent within, with Ella a dusty black and Polly a vibrant hot pink.

Ella is an intoxicating scent with top notes of bergamot and cassis and floral heart notes of orange blossom, jasmine and rose. Base notes of enticing amber, sandalwood and creamy vanilla round of the scent leaving a striking and confident scent.

I adore the matching compact mirror with its rose gold detailing serving as a bold outline to the deep, dark, multifaceted jewel which adorns the front of the compact.

It is a beautiful and bewitching scent which sits perfectly within this elegant set.

Available in the sweet treat fragrance Mia, this gift set is essentially the same as Beauty Bows with the exception of a bigger bottle of scent.

If you aren’t sure which sweet treat scent you may like best, Mia is a great start and sits perfectly between the depth of Ella and sweetness of Polly.

Top notes of lemon, raspberry and blackcurrant offer a light, refreshing and fruity experience before heart notes of soft and feminine floral rose and freesia bloom into a beautiful bouquet. 

Base notes of patchouli and golden amber complete the scent with a seductive warmth that lingers on the skin long after you’re sprayed it.

Captured within a pretty pale pink vessel with a rose gold domed lid complete with pale pink jewel sitting on top like a crown, Mia is a wonderfully romantic and feminine scent.

Like Beauty Bows, the Perfect Pair gift set also features a compact mirror and this one mirrors the hue of Mia’s bottle in all its pink and rose gold glory.

It is SO gorgeous!

Lastly but by no means least is the fabulous Ted’s Row of Bows gift set (£26)

 If you love all three fragrances or simply cannot bare to be forced to choose between them then this is the set for you.

Housed within their own individual bow adorned boxes, Row of Bows is the elegant and feminine gift set that keeps on giving.

Unwrap each box to discover your very own mini Sweet Treats fragrances each paired with an alluring nail polish that’s designed to add a striking finishing touch to any outfit.

Inside you’ll find your very own mini Mia accompanied by a classic nude pink polish to reflect her ladylike glamour!

Ella comes with, as you may expect from such a bewitching scent, a gorgeous silver sparkle nail polish while nestled in beside Polly you’ll find a striking and bold berry coloured enamel.

Polly is by far the most light-hearted and playful, sweet scent of the trio.

Top notes of fruity mandarin, red berries and peach blend with heart notes of white jasmine, honeysuckle and peony which offer a lightness to the fragrance before a dreamy twist of amber, sweet vanilla and white musk complete the fragrant experience.
It happens to be my favourite of the three scents on account of its juicy and gourmand elements which are so enticing!

It’s also such a happy playful coloured bottle, you can’t help but love it!
