Thomas Sabo Charm Rose Beach is the brand new fragrance from the hugely popular Jeweller.
Best known for creating gorgeous charm bracelets, this fragrance is actually the third for the brand, following the launch of Charm Rose Intense in the autumn of 2013 then the limited edition Charm Rose Summer in 2014.
No, I didn’t realise they had a fragrance line either!
Charm Rose Beach evokes the feeling of spending a day by the sea thanks to its combination of light, fresh and breezy notes.
And no, by saying it ‘evokes the feeling of spending a day by the sea’ I do not mean it smells like fish, chips and vinegar!
For a perfume, I find it a really refreshing fragrance which must be pretty hard to capture and balance.
Top notes of orange, mandarin and lemon blend with spicy bergamot to create a light and fresh experience.
Heart notes offer a floral bouquet of peonies with refreshing green tea which mingle with the aroma of sunny-fresh sea air.
Base notes offer a warm musk and amber intertwined with a spicy cedar, creating a beautifully well rounded fragrance.
The bottle reflects the fragrance perfectly with its cute starfish logo, nautical stripes and clean white bottle which rests in a seaside blue and striped box, nestled within a sand coloured satin.
It screams seaside luxury and while I usually prefer sweeter, headier fragrances, I have to admit I’m really rather taken by this one.
It’s definitely perfect for spring and summer when you don’t want to be weighted down to heady, heavy fragrances.
Charm Rose Beach will be available from selected perfumeries and Thomas Sabo shops from April where I believe it will cost £45 for 50ml.
