Pacifica Fresh Scents !

Spring/ Summer is upon us and for me that means a change in perfumes. I am always searching for that perfect fresh scent and so the Pacifica range was one i was keen to try out.
For those of you who are not familiar with the range let me tell you Pacifica is a fabulous range of products which host unusual and different blended fragrances as well as Soaps, candles, body butters so you can layer away to your hearts content. I was sent two Perfumes to try:

 Waikiki Pikake Perfume

Tahitian Gardens

I Love the pretty bottles which contain 30g Each

Waikiki Pikake is described as:
A homage to the lush wooded and flowered paradise of old world Hawaii, this hauntingly beautiful blend combines sweet Pikake - a delicate, exquisite jasmine flower native to Hawaii - with sensuous and velvety sandalwood.

for me this is a really unusual but lovely combination. Its unlike any perfume Ive tried before. The first thing that hits me when i spray it on is the Freshness and the sweet Jasmine but as it dries down you get the sandalwood coming through.
I always think these types of fresh fragrances seem to fade quite quickly but my husband actually commented on how nice it was about 4 hrs after applying it so i was shocked.

Tahitian Gardenia is described as:
This heady, vintage-inspired blend showcases the sacred Gardenia bloom, a symbol of love, unity, grace and strength. It's sweet, smooth and slightly citrusy aroma is reminiscent of Jasmine, Sweet Orange and Tea Leaves.

This scent for me is quite a strong gardenia but yet it is still very fresh and reminds me of a spring day with flashes of the sweet orange coming through.
Although this is not a perfume that i would automatically go for i have found myself wearing it a lot as it is really uplifting and quite subtle once it settles on my skin.

I am really intrigued about the other products in the range. I would love to try the Hawaiian Ruby Guava or the Tuscan Blood Orange. Because i have a bit of a soft spot for fruity fragrance.

Another great factor about these products is the fact that they are all free of Parabens, phtlates, sulphates, propylene glycol, vegan and cruelty free. So natural ingredients all the way.

Has anybody else tried any of the products, i wonder what the body butters are like? All these products can be purchased from  Himalaya
Do you change your perfume when the weather starts to brighten up?


  1. Ooo I like the look of them :) I like to change perfumes different seasons :) x

  2. Those bottles are so pretty, unusual fragrances too but they sound lovely and summery, well done on the descriptions of the fragrances xx

  3. These make me dream of summer! I just wish that I was watching the shining insted of snow falling... BAH!!

  4. Thanks girls, its really difficult to imagine a scent isnt it. We need smellivision xx

  5. I got some Pacifica stuff when I was in the States last year, only one problem I didn't buy enough of it especially shower gels and lotions. Stupidest mistake I ever made. I know a few places sell a few things but do you know of any place that sells the full range?

  6. I LOVE Pacifica... I actually reviewed Tuscan Blood Orange on my blog! :)


Thankyou for all your comments, i appreciate each and everyone xx
