A scented journey around London

As you'll know I simply adore perfume and loved stopping by some of my favourite places in London last weekend.

My highlight was stopping by Shay & Blue and getting to smell the perfumes in the range that I haven't tried yet - Blacks Club Leather (bit too masculine for me) along with Oud Alif and Suffolk Lavender - both of which I loved!

I did pick up a Jo Loves perfume - which I was planning on doing. See my post HERE

Stopping by Les Senteurs was also a must to smell the delicious and much loved Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose and yes it's on the wishlist!

At teeny tiny Bloom Perfumery I specifically wanted to try RIMA XI by Carner as I'm tempted by the Voyage Set. Let's just say I love it! I'm already a huge fan of TARDES see my review HERE.

Stopping by Diptyque on Marylebone High Street the assistant very kindly gave me some sample vials to try.

We also stopped by Covent Garden and I popped in to try Miller Harris's Rose Silence - it's a beautiful rose scent and now firmly on the wishlist!

We stumbled upon Angela Flanders where I fell head over heels for the new The Columbia Rose Trilogy a simply stunning collection of rose perfumes each one represents a decade of Angela Flanders' Life as a perfumer. 

I didn't manage to stop by Ancienne Ambiance but they recently sent me their very fabulous new Colonia Collection Gift Set* to review which was really kind and I'm enjoying trying them out - expect a review soon!

I also quite by accident came across Perfumer H (Lyn Harris's new line). It's really beautiful. You've guessed it I loved "rose".

Have you tried any of these perfumes?  What's your favourite beauty shops to visit in London?

  1. Looks like you have had a fabulous time x

    1. It was amazing! Hubby was a bit bored though! x

  2. I haven'tried any of those scents but my goodness young lady what a marathon shop. Lucky you! What a result with Diptyque too, I've only ever aquired their sents through gwp offers. I am very partial to their candles though! Tx

    1. I had it all planned out! haha. The assistant had a huge drawer full of samples. I was drooling! x
