I hope you are having a wonderful start of the new year and I wanted to wish you all the best in 2018! I know it has been a while since my last post but I wanted to take some time off, and spend it with my family and friends. I am very excited about 2018, discovering new brands and new products! A brand that I discovered recently, which I absolutely love is Lavender & Lillie, which has the most beautiful scented candles, diffusers and body care products.
Praslin, Seychelles Candle
At the moment, there are four ranges available, each one of them is inspired by an interesting destination. The scent I liked the most is Praslin, Seychelles, inspired by the tropical islands of the Seychelles. The scent is so wonderful and it is composed with finest scent notes. Unlike other candles, you can really smell the multiple fragrance layers, and the notes that stood out to me where Gardenia, Red Coconut and Frangipani. Below I included the entire ingredient list to show you the complexity of the scent:
Top notes: Pink Pepper, Passion fruit, Cardamom
Heart notes: Bougainvillaea, Gardenia, Frangipani, Orchid
Base notes: Leather, Red Coconut, Patchouli, Amber
I love the design of this candle, the drawings are fascinating and the candle adds a ‘design’ element to any type of interior. The candle comes with a stunning metal lid, which is hand crafted, meaning each lily is unique. Once you light the candle, the whole room will smell like tropical Seychelles, and you get 60 hours burning time. The candle comes in a gorgeous gift box. A home must- have and a perfect gift idea. Available from Lavender & Lillie Website for £42.
Praslin, Seychelles Hydrating Hand & Body Lotion
Once again, this lotion is from the Praslin Seychelles range, meaning it smells as beautifully as the candle. The lotion gets absorbed quickly into the skin, and keeps it hydrated throughout the day. It also has anti-ageing properties, aiming to improve the appearance of skin. What I liked about it, is that the scent stays on the skin throughout the day, so you either use it instead of perfume or layer scents on top of it. Available from Lavender & Lillie Website, for £18.
Praslin, Seychelles Nourishing Hand Cream
This hand cream is my new handbag essential, it contains sweet almond and vitamin E oils, beeswax and Abyssinian grapeseed making it the perfect remedy for dry hands. Like the body lotion, it also has anti-ageing ingredients which help to improve the appearance of skin and protect it from the damaging effects of the environment. Available from Lavender & Lillie Website, for £12.
