I love English Heritage brands. They signify quality, authenticity and have a history that makes them special and nostalgic. Yardley London reminds me of my childhood, and even the name reminds me dreamy summers playing in our garden.
Today, Yardley London completely rebranded, and are now are seen as a really cool British brand selling a beautiful collection of contemporary perfumes, body mists which I love and and gorgeous hand creams.
The new English Dahlia perfume is the latest scent from the collection. Its named after the Dahlia flower of course, and the scent is fresh, fruity and feminine. The Dahlia is blended with rose, peony, and enhanced with patchouli, cedar and musk. Its a dream and I can’t stop spraying it. The truth is, I never normally buy myself perfume as it’s expensive and I always ask for it at birthdays and Christmas. Also, I tend to stick to brands like Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford for my perfume of choice, however this Yardley one is so nice I keep getting stopped on the street about it… Yes people do stop you on the street for this kind of information, and I love it! I have am now a convert.
Yardley’s latests launches are also English Bluebell Nourishing Hand Cream which contains cornflower extract, shea butter, rice bran oil, and almond oil which is rich in Vitamin E. Ingredients like that are guaranteed to make your hands super soft all day. The uplifting bergamot and cassis accords in the top note are followed by a flirty heart of bluebell, jasmine, lily of the valley and peony, accented with a touch of peach. The fragrance is enhanced with smooth woody notes, vanilla and musk in the base.
The new ultra light Moisturising Fragrance Mist infused with Yardley London’s English Bluebell fragrance disperses evenly over the skin, absorbing quickly, and leaving it feeling smooth and delicately fragranced. I have put this in my gym bag as it acts like a perfume and moisturiser in one, and its so fast and easy to use. Also, I am kind of lazy, and its so cheap I can use as much as I like.
I am so surprised about how nice all of the products from Yardley are. I was recently reintroduced to the brand and now I’m hooked. The prices are amazingly cheap which means I don’t need to be so precious about how I use the products. I spray them everywhere and have them in all different bags and even keep one in the bathroom and at my desk at work. They make great gifts and are perfect gifts as the packaging is beautiful.
