I love perfumes but I’m quite fussy with the scents, I don’t like anything too girlie, in fact, I often prefer the smell of my husbands aftershave! The Leighton Denny Light & Dark Discovery Set has got me covered! These are my product of the month for August.
The set contains four travel friendly perfumes – all are 5ml so they sail through security in your hand luggage – which can be worn alone, or mixed together in cocktail you like!
Original // Gold
A fruity mixture of pepper, myrrh and incense, offering a warm welcoming, unique fragrance. With gardenia, jasmine, lily and rose merged with mandarin, grapefruit, peach and white pepper, this is what I class as a proper perfume, one you would wear for special occasions, it smells like a wedding perfume. I’m great with descriptions aren’t I!
Lively // Green (Unisex)
Sparkling citrus notes of bergamot, lemon and grapefruit entwined with white florals and a warm spicy hint of nutmeg, ginger, pepper and cardamom. It has base notes of sandalwood, patchouli, vetiver, ambers and musk. I love this one, it’s unisex so that’s probably why! In fact, out of the four (I’ll explain why there are only three in the images!) the two unisex are my absolute faves. This one is really manly to me, in a good way, there is nothing flowery about it at all.
Desire // Purple (Unisex)
Dark woods including vetivert, patchouli and cedar mixed with moss, amber and elements of pepper and nutmeg. A citrus top note of grapefruit, lemon and bergamot is warmed by a heart of neroli. This is my absolute favourite. It lasts SO long on me, I can literally smell it all day, and each time I think “oooh, what’s that smell?” and then I remember, it’s me! It is absolutely sexual. I will be buying the full size bottle of this immediately!
Delightful // Pink
A bright burst of red fruits enveloped by a gentle bouquet of lotus flower, mirabilis jasmine and pink violet, with a hint of sweet musk, vanilla and light coconut sorbet. Now, you may notice there is a lack of pink in my images and this would be because the Delightful perfume has gone to a new, very romantic, home. My 8 year old is in love, and his girlfriend loves pink, so he asked if he could give her the pink bottle. I could not say no! (Got to bring these boys up to be gentlemen!) so it now lives with a very happy, gorgeous girlie! True Love!!
You can buy any of the Leighton Denny miniatures for £9.50 each which is a real bargain, because they last all day – I love that I can throw my favourites in a bag and have it with me wherever, I also love that they’re refillable! The full size bottles are around £43 available from here, and you simply pop out the glass vial from inside the pump and spray the perfume into it – if you have one particular favourite (or two like me!) you could fill them all up with the same scent and have them everywhere.
