Perfumed Jewelry Review & Competition



Two things you will always find on my Christmas list are perfume and jewellery.  Always.

There’s nothing better on Christmas day than unwrapping a spangly new bottle of your favourite fragrance, or un-boxing some beautiful sparkly jewellery.

Am I right?

Well, how about this for a gift then, Perfume and Jewellery in one!

Perfumed Jewelry brings together a woman’s two favourites things, perfume and jewellery in one stunning filigree pendant.




I was BEYOND excited to try this out and practically snatched the package out of my poor postmans hands when it arrived!

I eagerly ripped at the packaging to reveal a chic white box with black ribbon.

I opened the box and was met by this gorgeous sight!




A beautiful pendant, a pretty little jar and a posh looking little pouch.

My Pendant was here!

Now before I go any further, this is how it works:

 You can chose from three different types of pendants, Silver, Gold or Rose Gold, each of which are available in six different designs;  Eternity, Passion, Tranquillity, Harmony, Enchanted and Prosperity. 

I love Rose Gold and opted for their really pretty teardrop pendant, Tranquillity.




The necklace is 10ct rose gold over 925 sterling silver, on a 30 inch chain.

As with every pendant, it comes with a 3 month supply of your chosen perfumed jewelstone, mine being Thierry Mugler’s Angel. 

This is what was hiding in the cute little pouch.



 
You can actually choose from 250 top name, branded fragrances when purchasing your pendant, and 50 essential oils, so you’re not short on choice that’s for sure!

 Each Jewelstone provides you with 28 days of beautiful fragrance and it is recommended that to prolong the length of the jewel, that you keep it safely stored in the pretty little jar which comes with your necklace.




I absolutely love my pendant. The design is so intricate and delicate and I love its super long chain. 

I’d definitely wear it even without the fragranced jewel inside, but it really works beautifully with it.
 
To put the perfumed jewelstone inside, remove the chain, unclasp the pendant and just pop it in.




 When you run out of your jewelstones you can purchase refills too and perhaps try a different fragrance next time.

I reckon this is a pretty perfect gift to be honest.

The Rose Gold and Gold pendants cost £170 while the silver ones cost £98.




If you (or your loved one) are feeling particularly generous, there are Limited Edition solid Rose Gold or Gold pendants available, but these will send you back a far more expensive £990.

Like what you see? You can check all of the range out from the Perfumed Jewelry store online now and if you're feeling lucky, why not enter my competition to win one in time for Christmas!

Thanks to the generous guys at Perfumed Jewelry, you could win your very own Perfumed Pendant!

You can choose any style from their £170 Gold, Rose Gold or Silver range, along with whichever fragrance you like!

Goodluck!

Estee Lauder Modern Muse Chic



Modern Muse Chic is the beautiful new fragrance from Estee Lauder and the bold, daring more creative sister of the original Modern muse.

It is a beautiful, woody, floral fragrance which see’s sophisticated florals entwine with deep, sultry woody notes to create a gorgeously feminine scent.




Floral notes of Jasmine Sambac, Tuberose Fir Abs, Lilies offer a delicate floral tone, while Juicy  Plum and Davana lift it with their sweeter notes.

Patchouli, Agarwood, Labdanum, Musks and Vanilla create a richer, deeper more sultry tone which is deliciously addictive and soft.




It is wonderfully  sophisticated, feminine fragrance which is full of contrasts, from the duality of its notes, down to its bottle.

The bottle with its feminine, pale pink fragrance is topped with a gorgeous navy bow adorned with gold toned, statement studs. 




Pretty yet bold, feminine yet edgy. I like it!

Modern Muse Chic is available now and costs £87.50 for 100ml.

Clarins Extra Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream



Clarins Extra Comfort Anti-Pollution Cleansing Cream is my go to cleanser of the moment.

This luxuriously thick cleansing cream is just what my tired, sensitive skin cries out for at the end of a long day and looks forward to after a night of disturbed sleep with my 9 month old son!




Designed for skin challenged by a polluted urban environment., the cream is enriched with extracts of purifying Moringa, Shea and mango.

It is extremely gentle on my delicate skin but packs a punch by removing all traces of my make up without stripping or drying my face.




Its rich texture and delicate fragrance is fresh and relaxing and I love that it comes in a decent size bottle which lasts for ages!

In the past I’ve never been a big fan of cream cleansers, with the thing I love most about them also being the thing that confuses me; the fact that it feels like you’re cleansing your skin with a moisturiser,  but this cream cleanser has definitely won me over!
