I picked up a bottle of the EDP in the gold bottle when in Paris last year and I have only just got around to using it. Wish I had have opened it sooner - this is a gorgeous floral fruity scent on me with a heavy note of rose but I can still smell the peach, vanilla and lily of the valley. I have a lot of perfumes and I mean a lot but this is one I will reach for again and again.
This is the worst brush I have ever had the misfortune to use. It is scratchy, does not pick up enough product and sheds like crazy. A total waste of money
I received a bottle of this scent as an early Christmas present. It is a lovely fragrance but also has absolutely no staying power so I will not be repurchasing it
Have never been a fan of MAC make-up but I love their brushes so I decided to give this blush a try and I am glad I did. It rivals my beloved Armani Sheer Blush #2 for colour and texture and a bonus is that it is half the price of the Armani product.
As a general rule, I avoid celebrity fragrances as I find them generic and for some of them, I have no desire to attach myself to the person whose name the scent bears. This perfume surprised me - it is a perfume that is perfect for all occasions and the price is right.
Fragrances -Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier Perfumes - Jardin Blanc

Jardin Blanc and Number One by Parfums De Nicolai are my all-time favourite white florals. They both have excellent staying power on me and I love the fact that neither perfume is that well-known.
This perfume has always been a favourite of my Mother, personally, I think she is more in love with the 'history' of the fragrance than the actual perfume. To my mind, it is a nice perfume but nothing special that warrants its extraordinary price.
Over the years I have bought mascaras from every imaginable company from high-ends like Chanel and Dior to cheapies such as Maybelline and Loreal. I have very long curly lashes, but not many of them so volume is the number one seller for me. Without doubt, this is the best volumising mascara I have ever used - no clumps at all and my lashes still look good 8 hours after I first apply the mascara.
I love this perfume - a lot of lily-based scents smell artificial on me. This is a true lily scent with a natural creamy smell on my skin. Not the cheapest perfume on the market, but worth every cent.
I love this perfume, I think it is a truer Garendia scent than most of the pretenders on the market at the moment. I find a lot of gardenia based perfumes have an artifical smell, but Ellenisia does not, smells divine.
Fragrances -Unlisted Brand - Carthusia I Profumi - Fiori di Capri

I have only recently discovered Carthusia perfumes and I adore Fiori di Capri. The EDP is a bit strong for me but the EDT is perfect. The wild carnation note is lovely and lingers on me all day. I get a lot of compliments when I wear this, particularly from my male work colleagues.
I love Gardenia perfumes but I am invariably disappointed by most of them and this is no exception. This perfume is very synthetic and artificial smelling which I do not like. Much prefer Ellenisia by Penhaligon's or Gardenia Passion by Annick Goutal, both of which in my opinion have a more authentic gardenia smell.
This is a great clarifying shampoo which leaves my hair nice and soft, unlike most others which leave it ending up looking and feeling like straw.
Conditioner -Bumble & Bumble - thickening conditioner

As is the case with the matching shampoo, this conditioner is just awful. Odd smell and made my hair limp and oily.
This is a terrible shampoo, it has an odd scent and the product build up from using it is dreadful. I expect more refined, better manufactured item for the money they charge for this rubbish.
