Yves Rocher just released this new fragrance and I just love it! I am in fact crazy about it, I even sprayed myself after the shower! Never done that before! The smell is very fruity, not too strong but when sprayed a little bit on my clothes it lasts ALL DAY! Never seen for a Yves Rocher eau de toilette I think! But dont get me wrong,: yes it smells at day but I never get tired of it. I am normally a very sensitive nose, I often get nosea from perfume like Lancome or Estee Lauder when I smell it for more than 2 hours but this one is WOW! I purchased the shower gel in the Plaisir Nature range and it smells the same: absolutely perfect! About the real or fake Apricot smell it is hard to say, the real fruit does not smell too much and you cant find a lot of those smell in the fragrance market to compare with. I am crazy about this EDP. My must for this coming automn and winter time.
I like this one, it really moisturize, not greasy at all. Very light scent, nice fragrance. Not heavy at all. I have a combination skin and this one is good, compared to others I tried (ddml yeark!)
I bought this and had a lancome money back right away! I had a big allergic reaction, my skin was burning like crazy! I only had allergic reactions to 2 creams and they both are lancome's
I usually dont like lipsticks, too heavy and too dark on me most of the times (I have big lips!). But those are a mix between the light color of a gloss and the smooth texture of a liptsick. Very nice colors are also avalable, I like rose pin-up.
I absolutely love all the 3 colors I purchased. They all apply so well, so easy to use and the brush makes an even application. PERFECT!
I dont know why I bought those. I had 5 in a christmass set and it was the first time I regreted a lancome purchase. I just hate the smell, the texture AND the brush on type of gloss.

I like the pink one for dry skin when the cold winter days begin and it helps me a lot. Like someone else said it is not enough to get all the makeup off your face but a good exfoliation and it is perfect.
OK I am crazy about juicy tubes, I must have about 25 (not all full size! a lot are gwp or small sizes in kits). I just love them and they all have a great smell! Stiky but I dont mind except on windy days...

Ok I dont know if I got a bad batch or something but the gel I had (a small 1.7oz bottle in a kit of 4 different "flavors") smelled terribly bad. Very plastic, chemical smell!

I like this one better than blackberry since it is not as flowery as the second one but I like it less than apricot they just released. Not too sugary, smell good but not long...

I bought the whole set: shower gel, body lotion, perfume spray and cream perfume! The cream perfume smell is perfect but does not last long. The shower gel scent is fine, very refreshing scent, but the body lotion and edp spray are too flowery for me. I hoped it was a bit more sweeter.
This is like Lilas in a bottle! I have never smelled a product that was so close to the actual scent. This is amazing!
Gels/Soaps -Yves Rocher - Hamamelis Super-Soft Hand Soap

OK this product is good, I have never saw a better smelling hand soap before, it smells a lot and it smells fresh but still very flowery. The only problem with the product is the price: 9.50$CAD. It is not a cheap price for a hand soap. BUT! Y.R. always have many super sales where you can get those for more than 50% off. This is the only time when I would buy this.
Gels/Soaps -Yves Rocher - Jardins Du Monde - Brazilian Watermelon Shower Gel

Ok this is the ONLY Yves Rocher ''jardins du monde'' shower gel that i am not crazy about. The smell is not bad but not good eather, the problem I think is that the gel is too watery, too liquid. It is not a gel or a cream at all (like the others from YR gels) it is like water, not pratical for a shower!

I have those in Pear, Raspberry, Blackberry, Apricot, Orange and Pinaple and wow it is like i wash myself with a fruits salad! The packaging is not too bad since you can by the Yves Rocher pump for shower gels and lotion for 1$ extra. It is a lot easier that way in the shower. It is not hydrating at all but I dont have a sensitive skin or a dry skin so it does not matter to me. The smell is worth a lot more then the actual price they all smell soooooooo good!
