Yardley London Jade EDT & Blue Orchid Hand & Nail Cream
Last year I fell in love with Yardley London's fragrance launch - Polaire and this year they have done it again with their newest fragrance - Jade. Its name pays homage to Yardley's first fragrance of the the 60's - Sea Jade.
A smart and simply designed round bottle that is clean and mininal contains a perfect Spring/Summer garden scent.
Jade is a crisp, green floral chypre that is fresh and elegant which transcends any particular age group, appealing to all. It is quite strong but not overpowering and it has excellent staying power. Very nice indeed.
Top notes - Peach, Bergamot & Galbanum
Heart notes - Rose, Jasmine, Ylang-ylang & Orris
Base notes - Patchouli, Sandalwood & Moss
Yardley London Jade 50ml £19.99
I have also had a chance to try out the new floral Bath & Body Collection from Yardley London and first to be reviewed is the gorgeous Invigorating Blue Orchid Hand & Nail Cream
This new collection is affordable and features bright, modern packaging.
Blue Orchid is a rather deliciously sweet scent, a mix of juicy fruits - mango, orange and redcurrant, florals - of water lily, bluebell and vanilla orchid with a warm and woody base of cedarwood, mahogony and one of my all time faves.. tonka bean. It also contains Q10, vitamin E, shea butter and sweet almond oil.
It leaves skin silky soft and smooth and nails feeling conditioned. A gorgeous bargain.
