Liz Earle Botanical Essence No.1

I'm really excited to be reviewing Liz Earles Fragrance Botanical Essence No. 1
The packaging is marvelous, the box comes apart by pulling the ribbon tab to reveal the Essence.

£40.35 (50ml)

As you can imagine the fragrance encapsulates an abundance of fine ingredients such as-

High-altitude lavender from France
Damask rose from Turkey
Italian bergamot
Spicy patchouli from Indonesia

The bottle is a nice traditional bottle, nothing too fancy. I think sometimes some fragrances get it all wrong, such flamboyant bottles yet when you smell the perfume you think it doesn't live up to the standards you have already set for it. I always use the saying 'Don't judge a book by its cover' and I think this is exactly what I'm trying to say.

The scent reminds me of clarins Eau Dynamisante, I did look up the ingredients and patchouli is the only ingredient featured in both. I favour strong perfumes and when this is applied directly to the skin you do have a very hearty scent. I would actually say this would be suitable for men also, this could certainly be unisex. If you like a softer scent then this would probably be better applied just by spritzing a couple sprays in the air around you. From the time the fragrance settles on the skin it changes all the time, and eventually takes on a scent of it's own. As with all fragrances they smell so different on everyone.

Have you tried this? I would love to know what you think of the scent?

Thanks for stopping by :)
