This Christmas, I would love to unwrap a gift from beauty favourite Fresh. They're a brand that I find elusive, indulgent and innovative which is everything that I look for in a beauty brand. One of my favourite product ranges from Fresh is their fragrance line as they're so different to other scents out there; very citrus scent and fresh smelling, funny that! This Christmas, Fresh have released their Holiday 2012 Gift Set Collection which was inspired by vintage Champagne catalogues from France and exudes festive merrymaking and Christmas cheer. One such gift set is the Fragrance Essentials Rollerball Trio which I have been enjoying this season.
Fragrance Essentials Rollerball Trio
The Fragrance Essentials Rollerball Trio is a great option for any perfume enthusiast this Christmas. Up until Fresh opened their first store in the UK, their products hadn't been too easy to obtain over here so I'm really pleased they have a shop in the UK now. This also means that if you have a friend who is into fragrances that are a little different, something that not everyone has, then this is a great choice of present for them.
There are three 10ml eau de parfum rollerball fragrances contained in this set, these being:
- Brown Sugar which is an effervescent citrus scent sprinkled with sheer caramles
- Sugar Lemon which is a bright blend of crisp citrus notes and fruity florals
- Hesperides Grapefruit which is a medley of intoxicating citruses.
The three awakening fragrances can be worn on their own or layered to create a personalised unique scent which I love the idea of. I'm inclined to say that the Hesperides Grapefruit sent is my favourite but then I keep smelling the other two and think that they are my favourite, so really I'm spoilt for choice and enjoy them all equally. I've really enjoyed layering up the scents together and also with some of my other perfumes. These perfumes are much more citrus scented than the musky scents I usually wear so they are a really welcome addition to my fragrance collection.
The scents themselves are very high quality, deep and long lasting. I find that I only need to apply a little of the eau de parfum to get a strong smell of the fragrance and it lasts for hours on the skin. The good thing about these rollerballs is that they are so handbag friendly and easy to use, perfect for a night out and for topping up my scent during the day as they fit in all of my bags, even my smallest clutches.
The packaging of the Fragrance Essentials Rollerball Trio is gorgeous too, dressed in winter fruit shades that really epitomise the spirit of the season.
The Fragrance Essentials Rollerball Trio is priced at £27 which is excellent value for money. Fresh have many other gift sets available to suit different tastes and budgets; there is the Sugar Soiree Mini Lip Collection £49, the Sugar Addiction Mini Lip Collection £36, Sake and Sea Berry Spa Retreat set £56, Spa Escape set £38, Hesperides Grapefruit Jubilee £34 and the Sugar Passion Princess £21.
