Yardley Polaire Eau de Toilette 50ml - Review

Just over a week ago I attended a special launch evening for Yardley's first premium fragrance launch - Polaire. We learnt how to make cocktails in a special masterclass (including creating our very own in a competition!) but more importantly and excitingly for me, got to smell not only the fragrance but also the top , heart and base notes that make up the composition of the fragrance.

Polaire is named after a silent film actress of the early 20th century. The fragrance is inspired by the Art Deco era of the 1920's that is very much back in the spotlight thanks to films such as The Great Gatsby and the revival and evolution of the floral chypres that were first launched back in 1917. These fragrances were representative of the period which empowered women - a period of glamour, elegance, seduction, fun and economic prosperity.

In Polaire, Yardley has created a contemporary floral fragrance that takes you from for day to evening.

Top notes: Green, Pear and Freesia
Heart notes: Rose, Ginger and Pink Pepper
Base notes: Patchouli, Amber and Balsam

My thoughts 

Alone the top notes and the heart notes are just so incredibly gorgeous and appealing, so if Yardley would like to make them into scents I would be first on the list to purchase!

The top notes are fresh and similar to the scent of Green Tea, the heart notes are sweet and floral with the tiniest hint of spice. Once combined with the base notes the scent is transformed.

Polaire is quite sharp when you first spray it but this settles down almost immediately into a sweet powdery floral which is light and long lasting,  I just love it. I have been wearing it loads since receiving it. It smells far more expensive than the price tag suggests.

The bottle is simple and classy with its vintage style and faceted lid.

Sophisticated and sensuous, this is a modern interpretation of the classic floral chype and a great addition to the house of Yardley.

Yardley Polaire EDT 50ml costs £19.99
