|LGNS Roses & Diamonds Eau de Parfum £19.99 (February 2013)|
|There are so many great cruelty-free products on the market that we're spoilt for choice when it comes to make-up, skin and hair care. Perfume, however, can be a little more difficult. So we were delighted to be introduced to LGNS London. The company offers a choice of two quality perfumes - Serenity and Roses & Diamonds. As we just can't resist flowers and jewels, we opted for Roses & Diamonds.|
The first thing we noticed was the packaging - the cute 30ml bottle comes in a nice box and is wrapped in pretty pink tissue paper.
Once opened, we fell in love with this perfume at first squirt! According to LGNS, the aroma is 'a rich warm oriental accord opening with sparkling mandarin, raspberry and roses notes entwined with sweet aniseed and soft florals, resting on a base of cedar, vanilla and musk'. All we know is that it's flipping lovely! 'Luxurious, glamorous and feminine' were the words our team used.
As it's an Eau de Parfum, the smell lasts longer than a simple Eau de Toilette and we just needed a quick top-up spray before we headed out in the evening. After a couple of hours, you're left with a rich scent (vanilla maybe?) which, judging by the number of people that asked us what perfume we were wearing, is very nice indeed!
We're really taken with Roses & Diamonds - the smell is lovely; it's soft enough to wear during the day yet perfect for nights out too, and it's great value for money compared to other 'designer' perfumes. Now we just need to try Serenity ..
