Roullier White purchases

Roullier White, which is a lifestyle boutique is situated on Lordship Lane in East Dulwich, London and sells perfumes, candles, household products and gifts. I noticed on Twitter that over the last Bank Holiday weekend they were offering free P&P. After having a browse I treated myself to a new bottle of scent.

I chose a perfume by Infusion Organique, a brand I've not heard of before. The company is run by a two sisters-one husband team. They source ethically produced organic raw materials to formulate their perfumes and home fragrances.

The scents are made with Organic alcohol (made from Certified Organic Sugar Cane), Organic oils, extracts and botanicals.

I chose the scent which appealed to me most from the choice of four - Sands of Morocco Organic EDP (11ml roll on - £12). I just loved the description of it "close your eyes, and wander through the fresh flower and food stalls of the local Moroccan Souk. Inhale the spices drifting in the desert wind of North Africa ride the train from Marrakech to Casablanca to Tangier. Smell the fresh vanilla first brought to Morocco by the French in the time of Berber Kings".

The scent has a top note of Lemon Zest, middle notes Lily of the Valley, Rose Blossoms and Ylang Ylang with base notes of French Vanilla, Musk, Sandalwood and Oakmoss.  The scent starts off (on me) fairly sweet and floral mellowing to woods, vanilla and incense. It is long lasting for an organic scent. I love it!

I also received a vial of "Perfume of the Month" - Jovoy - Rouge Assasin EDP which is inspired by the 'femmes fatales' of 1920s Paris - a mix of innocence and seductiveness. 

While chatting to Roullier White on Twitter I found out that they offer a sample service for most of their scents. Most are around the £2 mark for a 2ml decant.  P&P is £2.50 and if you decide to buy a full size bottle you are given a code to get free P&P within one month - a brilliant idea to try before you buy!  I ordered on Friday and my samples arrived first thing on Saturday morning - what great Customer Service.

I've totally fallen for No.002 Gorse EDT by Laboratory Perfumes. I simply love it. It has notes of Gorse blossoms, fresh greens and citrus and on me I can detect a coconut note. (I so want a full size bottle of this!)

My other samples are - 4160 Tuesdays Says AliceConnock London Kukui, Atelier Cologne Vanille Insensee and Nasomatto Narcotic Venus - these are all amazing too and fuller reviews to follow.
