Givenchy Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush

Live Irrésistible Blossom Crush is the beautiful new fragrance from Givenchy.

Perfect for the lightness of springtime, this delicate, feminine and romantic fragrance is exquisite in every way imaginable.

Just look at its breath-taking bottle.

This multi-faceted, majestic bottle features the most gorgeous, eye catching mauve hue which radiates out from the nectar within, glistening against the faceted glass.

The tall, slender bottle fits perfectly within your hand and the two textured edges offer a contrast from its one sleek side as if to reflect the complex and surprising notes that together create this irresistible and beautiful scent.

‘Joy’ is one of the key elements which sits within the heart of Givenchy Live Irresistible scents and this latest incarnation, Blossom Crush is no different.

Fans of the original scent will be overjoyed to hear that Blossom Crush retains the same familiar, signature note of Rose right at the heart of the composition but offers a more light-hearted and whimsical experience.

The fragrance opens with notes of fresh, delicate peony before blending into the signature, floral bouquet of rose.

This beautiful floral bloom is then complimented by base notes of soft, creamy coca bean and smooth musk to leave a scent which is beautifully floral with a soft, delicious and delicate sweetness.

I would not have imagined such a sweet, soft note of coca bean blending so well with such distinctive florals but do you know what, it works. It really works.

Live Irresistible Blossom Crush is a wonderful blend of delicate, light florals, sweet cocoa and smooth musks which leaves a scent that is both beautiful and addictive.

Feminine and light-hearted it is the perfect day time fragrance if you’re looking to move away from deeper, winter scents and on a totally superficial level it really is captured in the most stunning bottle.

Distinctive, eye catching, beautiful and elegant, Irresistible Blossom Crush truly is Irresistible by name, irresistible by nature.

Givenchy Live Irresistible Blossom Crush is available now and costs £72.50 for 75ml.

Decleor Aroma Confort Body Milk 50ml (Worth £9)

Bomb Cosmetics Lime & Dandy Soap Slice 100g (Worth £2.99)
+2 fragrance samples and either a skincare or haircare sachet

I’m going to be totally honest here; when I opened the box the first thing I saw were the fragrance sample vials (CK Obsessed and Versace pour Homme Dylan Blue) and the haircare sachet (Novex Argan Oil Shampoo) and I immediately felt a pang of disappointment.
From this initial experience I imagined that the rest of the box would contain tiny samples and I was ready to be quite cross.

I was wrong though, especially when I laid my eyes on the Manuka Dr ApiNourish Overnight Lavender Mask.
Designed to be applied to freshly cleansed skin prior to bedtime, this hardworking mask transforms your skin overnight, leaving it feeling healthy, hydrated, smooth and luminous come morning.

Infused with lavender oil this beautifully scented leave on gel mask also aids relaxation thanks to its delicate aroma.
It is a really lovely product which used weekly, feels like a decadent little treat!
I was equally thrilled to see Decleor’s Aroma Confort Body Milk.
Yes, granted it is a sample size but it is generous enough to get a decent feel for the product.
This rich, nourishing yet light moisturiser is fabulous at transforming your dry skin.

It not only re-hydrates your thirsty skin thanks to its superior moisturising qualities but it helps to improve your skins elasticity and firmness too.

 A little goes a long way with this cream which is quickly absorbed, leaving behind hydrated, soft and velvety smooth skin.
Suitable for all skin types thanks to its gentle formulation it has truly got me hooked!
Another good ‘un is the Gatineau Perfection Ultime Retexturizing Beauty Cream.

This lightweight daily moisturiser instantly hydrates and brightens your skin and features a host of skin loving ingredients.
Hyaluronic Acid and Cotton Extract brighten while protein-rich Caviar Extract and Tripeptide 1 work to restore your skin’s health and luminosity while Geranium Oil protects from free-radicals.
Wheat and soy proteins smooth and perfect your complexion and you are left with skin that both feels soft and looks radiant.

 A new discovery comes in the form of The Organic Pharmacy Detoxifying Seaweed Bath Soak.

This potent bath soak is infused with seaweed, juniper, sunflower oil, rosemary, grapefruit and eucalyptus to help to purify and relax your body and mind.

Upon opening the lid I was met with a pretty powerful aroma and when I added two scoops into my bath my bathwater was transformed into a delicate green haven which smelt incredible!
Just wonderfully relaxing!
Another item within this box is a Regenerate Original Travel Size Toothpaste.
This toothpaste has been designed specifically to reverse the erosion process of tooth enamel and protect against acid, decay, and cavities.

This high-tec paste uses something called NR-5 technology to recreate the mineral that tooth enamel is made of, so every time you brush you’re helping to retain your teeth’s whiteness and overall health.

 Lastly but by no means least is the most beautifully scented addition to the box; Bomb Cosmetics Lime & Dandy Soap Slice.

 Looking frickin fantastic with its lime green hue this soap will definitely help to life your spirits and raise your mood.

 Handmade and featuring essential oils of pure lime, lemongrass, lemon and grapefruit this soap instantly refreshes and uplifts with its fizzy, zesty aroma.

 100% lovingly handmade, organic, cruelty free, and vegan friendly, Bomb Cosmetics always goes the extra mile to make sure that neither animals, humans or the environment are negatively affected by their products.


It’s a brand with wicked values and gorgeous products and I’m looking forward to exploring their other products!
