If you are anything like me and love affordable fragrance then you are going to want to hear about ESCENTUALS.
If you are after something a little more than a scent then why not try the new and exciting Escentuals range of layering fragrances.
The concept of this British brand allows us fragrance fans to mix and match fragrances to suit every taste and mood. This give you the opportunity of creating your very own completely bespoke scent to suit your very own style. 
The collection uses a selection of fresh and sweet fragrance notes from: white musk, to vanilla, lychee, peony, candy, and green tea.

So I’ve been kindly gifted three of the brands scents which include CANDY, PEONY, and VANILLA. All of which smell completely amazing.  With 6 in the collection there is something for everyone. Not only are these fragrances great on their own but can be mixed for new exciting fragrances. 


This is a really fruity one. Bursting with fresh fruit notes, lychee is laced with raspberries and peach followed by crisp bergamot and soft watery accords. All encompassed with floral notes of fruit and freesia, leading to a saccharine-sweet base comprising of warming musk and vanilla. I definitely love the sound of this and can’t wait to try this one out next 
This scent Candy is a very sweet fragrance which opens with raspberry and peach notes and a hint of candied apple. The heart of the scent has notes of lily of the valley and a hint of robust sandalwood before melting into a base of chocolate and vanilla. 
This fragrance is soft and delicate, this peony scent opens with light and refreshing citrus notes, then bursts full of freesia, jasmine and cherry blossom and is abundant with its namesake, peony at its heart. Subtle fruity notes of cherry and apricot add to the bouquet while a musky base is balanced with warming amber and woody notes.
This one has to be my favourite out of the three. As its namesake, this creamy vanilla scent is sprinkled with hints of fruity peach and juicy plum, while rose adds a full and powdery finish - creating the ultimate feminine fragrance.

A true nostalgic scent for anyone who remembers the 90’s. (Well that’s me then!!!) It’s sensuous and soothing with a fruity top of mandarin and peach. The heart emanates with uplifting notes of lily of the valley and jasmine before drawing you in with a woody, vanilla musk base.

This is a bright and reviving everyday fragrance bursting with clean, fresh notes of freesia and fruity mandarin complimented with a heart of warming cardamon and the soft additions of cedar and musk. 
The laying combinations are endless but the brand do give us some suggestions if we get stuck but really the finished scent is down to the individual. This is a great way to mix and match fragrances to suit all tastes and moods. 
So what did I think of them? 
If you like sweet scents these are definitely the sprays for you. The Vanilla one is my go to! Followed by Candy and then the Peony which is very a floral scent. 
They are a great spray to pop into your bag for on the go Fragrance as you do have to top up every few hours but that’s normal for a body spray.

Combination Suggestions 

Whichever one that you decide to buy you know at £3.99 for the body mist you are getting a real beauty bargain. I have left you the link below if you would like to check out the fragrances for yourself from Boots CLICK HERE 

These fragrances are also available in a perfume from AMAZON  which I would will definitely be trying. These only retail at £9.99 for 100ml of fragrance. These can also be layered like the body mists. So why not give them a try!! 

Until next time.
