Monday mood lifter: Roger & Gallet Eau Sublime Or
September is here, and how quickly it seemed to arrive. Sometimes the weather stays sunny into the start of autumn and sometimes it doesn't, but this week's mood lifter is all about extending that summer feeling through fragrance. I'm always on the lookout for new fragrances, mainly because I'm not very loyal to perfumes; I like to mix it up and have a few on the go at once.
I spotted The Roger & Gallet Bois D'Orange fragrance in M&S a couple of weeks ago and it reminded me of another of my favourite beauty discoveries from a few years back - Dior Sweet Sun. Do you remember it? Anyway, Dior's fragrance came in an orange bottle had the most beautiful summery smell, and the Roger & Gallet Eau Sublime Or Bois D'Orange captures that very same mood. There is a whole range of products available in the fragrance, but I went for the Fresh Fragrant Water Golden Shimmer which leaves skin with a subtle sparkle - but in a grown-up way. It's perfect to spray on just before you go out in the evening and would be even more perfect for holidays. If you've already had your summer holiday, don't worry. This fragrance is sure to transport you back to those beachfront walks, and if it doesn't, just book another one; that's what I'm thinking of doing.
The Fresh Fragrant Water sells for £32 for 100ml, which is a bargain in my books. The bottle is beautiful too and features an intricate pattern in lustrous gold. Snap it up over at M&S.
