The big day is finally here! I know that I said it before, but it seems so unbelievable that Christmas is finally here. This has definitely been a very long year, but now is the moment to relax and enjoy time with your loved ones.
As today is the 25th of December that also means that I reached the end of the Marks & Spencer Beauty Advent Calendar. Are you ready for the big reveal? Not that much of a surprise anymore as I had to go and include the name of the product in the title of this post, but you know what I mean (I hope).
I have been so curious to try Shay & Blue fragrances for a very long time now, however I have not seen the fragrances anywhere in stores. It is quite strange actually. They have so many ads in big fashion magazines, but I have no idea where to find them in store. Okay, I probably should have used the Internet and searched for stockists, but my fragrance addiction is out of control so it has to be managed. My poor wallet cannot handle it!
Atropa Belladonna from Shay & Blue London is a fragrance unlike any other that I have tried before. If the information is correct, then I must have tried something else from the creator of the perfume, but the scent is quite unique. The perfume is described as floral, yet it so different from your usual floral scent. It is so hard to describe, more so than usual. There is a clear combination of scents, however they are quite hard to distinguish. It is a perfect harmony of scents that one would probably not consider mixing and yet it makes perfect sense for them to be combined in this small bottle. The perfume is without a doubt feminine, but not incredibly so. There is a clear note of mystery which makes the perfume more attractive, but it also reminds me of a times long passed. The scent makes me think of a glamorous ball room full of swaying gowns. There is no other way to describe the perfume, at least in my opinion. Overall, if I were to sum it up in one word, that word would, without a doubt, be luxurious.
