It's quite rare that i review perfumes. But i was asked if i would like to review the Liz Earle Botanical Essence and i was intrigued. I am a big fan of Liz earle products ( as most of you will know ) so thought i would give it a try.
The first thing that struck me was the gorgeous packaging and the beautiful bottle. I usually throw the packaging away but the little pull out drawer is such a nice touch that i am keeping it in its box.
As for the fragrance itself: I always find it difficult to review a fragrance after all what i personally like is not necessarily going to be similar to your tastes?
Here's what Liz Earle says about this fragrance:
For our first ever fragrance we’ve used the finest natural botanical ingredients from around the world and the expert skills of a distinguished perfumer from Grasse, France. We gave him the time to indulge in the age-old art of perfumery, skilfully hand-crafting this complex scent with true passion to create this vibrant, sparkling fragrance translating into warmth and sensuality. This sensuous fragrance can be worn every day.
Over 98% directly derived from natural ingredients.
The fragrance has a really uplifting refreshing and calming feel to it. I would describe it as a very unique and unusual perfume. Its very different to anything i have used before. Having said that i am finding myself reaching for it most days as i really like it for an everyday spritz.
I have heard a few people say that its a really strong perfume which i initially agreed with after the first few sprays but once it has dried down i find it a lot more subtle.
This would make an ideal present for someone and is available from Liz earle stores or direct from the website
