Britney Spears VIP Private Show

VIP Private Show is the scrummy new fragrance from Britney Spears.

Just when you think she couldn’t possibly create another addictive and delicious scent, she does!

Inspired by the thrill of being up close and personal with the star, VIP Private Show is everything you would expect from a Britney fragrance and it certainly does not disappoint.

This fragrance may have just overtaken Fantasy as my all time favourite Britney perfume thanks to the combination of its super cute, multifaceted bottle and its sweet yet juicy scent.

The bottle itself is a beautiful, pink, crystalline hexagon and features a spakling golden gem cap.

 In terms of some of her other fragrances it is probably the least ‘fussy’ and understated bottle thus far and I actually quite like the simplicity of it.

The scent itself is very Britney-esq and by that I mean it retains all the sweetness so familiar with her fragrances and yet it possesses more of a light-ness.
It is not as musky as some of the others and is probably the most floral in the entire collection.

Top notes of zesty blood oranges blend with red apple and mango nectar creating a deliciously ripe and juicy experience.

Mid notes of violet blossom, orange blossom and magnolia tone down the fruitiness somewhat, leaving a delicate, floral and feminine element before base notes of raspberry wood, golden amber and velvet musk round off the scent with a gentle, powdery softness.

It is a really lovely fragrance which is perfect for summer and sunny days, so if you find some of Britney’s other scents too sacchariney, keep an eye out for VIP Private Show when it launches on August 1st.

Made by Coopers Revive Atmosphere Mist

 I adore home fragrances.

As a stay at home mum I spend a lot of time at home and I love spending time making my home smell wonderful.

Usually I stick to diffusers and scented candles but recently I was introduced to a brand called Made by Coopers and the way I fragrance my home has changed forever.

Say hello to their Revive Atmosphere Mist.

Ok wait, first things first.

Made by Coopers are a brand which creates handcrafted collection of natural aromatherapy candles, mists and spa products.

Made by Cooper’s creators Clare & Darren Cooper were inspired to create their own collection of natural products, infused with essential oils, with the focus on emotional well being after a 3 month yoga sabbatical in India.  

At an Ayurvedic retreat (Ayurveda 'life-knowledge' is a traditional medicine system derived from ancient India) they experienced the power of plants and natural healing and how plants and herbs were transformed into oils for treatments and it was from this knowledge that they developed the range, handcrafting every product themselves.

Clare and Darren say “Believing what you put on the skin and what you breathe in, is as important as what you put in your body, every single ingredient in the this collection is natural and clean.  All products are vegan-friendly; plant based and contains organic ingredients”.

Before I’d even tried the product I loved the sound of the brand, its back story and it’s ethos.

While I’m talking specifically about  their Atmosphere Mist, their collection comprises of candles, pillow mists, bath salts, body oils and body scrubs, all of which are made with no chemical fillers, harsh preservatives, artificial colours or synthetic fragrances.

And so, onto the mist!

I have fallen head over heels in love with their Revive Atmosphere Mist.

This room fragrance is packaged in a simple yet chic bottle and contains an uplifting blend of four essential oils which are designed to revive and invigorate the senses.

Energising Lemongrass combines with warm, stimulating Ginger, zesty Lime and Bergamot to create a fantastically fresh and aromatic fragrance which instantly lifts your mood and refreshes your environment.

The blend of these four oils are said to help boost confidence, relieve stress and anxiety and boost your mood.

Generously mist through the air then take a moment to close your eyes, breathe it in and you could easily imagine being at a spa!

I simply love this product. I love that it is 100% natural. I love that is 100% organic. I love that it contains no nasties and I love how wonderful it leaves my home smelling.

Made by Coopers Revive Atmosphere Mist costs £12 and is available now along with their entire collection on their website.

L'Occitane Verbena Body Cream

L’Occitane’s Verbena Frappe Body Cream is one of the most beautifully scented body creams that I’ve ever tried.

Perfect for summer, this super light yet rich cream delivers a powerful hit of moisture to your skin and leaves it feeling and smelling wonderful.

Upon opening the product your senses are immediately enveloped in the refreshing, sparkling and intense aroma of Verbena.

This zesty, lemony scent invigorates your mind and leaves your skin smelling fresh and gorgeous!

The cream itself is super light in texture, a lotion-cream hybrid almost and is absorbed into your skin instantly.

 A little goes a long way, but I cant help covering myself in this cream because it smells so wonderful and leaves your skin feeling so soft without any greasiness at all.

It is the perfect summer moisturiser as it nourishes yet leaves your skin feeling light and refreshed.

L’Occitane’s Verbena Frappe Body Cream is available now and costs £20.
