Yves Rocher So Elixir Purple - £34.30*

My perfume collection is getting a little on the large side but I couldn't turn down the offer of receiving yet another one! One thing my perfume collection lacks is a bit of colour. All of the bottles I have are quite plain so I went for this one on the purple colour and the name alone.

I've never heard of Yves Rocher before but I'm so, so glad I went for this fragrance as it's absolutely delicious. It's quite a strong smell at first but once it settles down you get wafts of essential oils, tuberose and patchouli, which actually remind me of a more expensive perfume I've worn in the past but I can't for the life of me remember which one it is.

I'm quite a floral/fruity perfume kind of person but this one is a lot richer than what I'm used to. As I said, it's quite strong when you first spray it but once it calms down I really love the richness of the floral/woody elixir scent coming through.

You shouldn't judge a book by its cover so you probably shouldn't judge a perfume by its bottle either but when you're choosing from a website it's pretty hard not to. The stumpy purple curved bottle completely won me over, it's pretty simple and elegant looking but the colours just give it a bit of a wow-factor. I wouldn't even mind if I didn't like the perfume inside because the bottle is just so pretty anyway, luckily I love the perfume inside and I think for £34.30 it's really reasonable. I would definitely recommend checking out the website and having a browse of the fragrances, I never thought of picking up perfume from anywhere other than Boots/The Perfume Shop but this was absolutely no hassle and it came perfectly packaged and all still in tact. Great!

What's your favourite perfume?

  1. I had a little sample of this in a Glossybox last year and I absolutely adored it - it's a beautiful scent, I definitely need to treat myself to the full size, especially at that price!!
    I love the bottle, it's such a pretty colour and shape :)

  2. This not only looks pretty, it sounds like a lovely fragrance too. I like Yves Rocher as a brand & have tried a few products from their skincare range.
