Sweet Fragrance From Yves Rocher!

I recently received a pretty little set of items from Yves Rocher, which contained some of their Candied Mallows collection and an Apple Delight candle!!

I received a  bottle of body lotion, hand lotion, body wash and hand soap as part of the package and so I was able to get a good grasp on the look and feel of the line and was able to carry the scent throughout the day! 

Described as having "a burst of sweet Almond, a heart of Mallow and Roses as well as a lingering base of white musk and Tonka Bean" [on the Yves Rocher website], this collection promises a very feminine, sweet and floral experience and is presented in a very womanly pink packaging! 

I have to say that first off I was attracted to the product for the packaging alone, because I do like a little drop of girly pink now and then, but I was a tad concerned that the notes in this one might be a little too "young" for the older woman. However, we all know that we shouldn't judge a book by its cover and to keep an open mind and so now, after using each of the products several times, I do feel as though they do indeed do live up to their promise - they are floral and girly and the scent does have hints of rose and perhaps a little musk! 

I love Almonds and do get a sweet feel from this scent but the Almonds aren't as forefront as perhaps I would like. I don't feel that any of the other elements are too overpowering either though, although the floral element is certainly evident and it is sweet enough to wear on a daily basis without being too sickly sweet or "young" - this isn't a young girls product, this is one for everybody with a feminine flare! 

The hand wash is perfect for every day cleansing - I have mine in my kitchen and grab for it after cleaning or washing dishes or to wash my hands before dinner. It is a nice consistency and blasts a bloom into the air as you wash. Finish your hands off with the hand cream and the scent will linger through the day. 

Both the body lotion and hand lotion are easy to apply and not overly greasy - the body lotion is best applied after a shower for maximum absorption and will leave your skin moisturized for a large chunk of your day. If you have overly dry skin then you may want to re-apply but if you love this scent as much as I do, you will not mind having to do that at all! 

The Apple Delight candle is a limited edition seasonal candle with warm and delicious tones! It really cozies the mood in any home at this time of year and breathes a vanilla and apple tone into your room! The scent is soft and not at all overpowering and the candle burns for up to 20 hours keeping you in the holiday mood for longer!

If you are interested in any of the products mentioned in this post, or would like to explore the lines further, then head on over to the Yves Rocher Website and pick up a fragrance today!! 

Already tried these scents!? Let me know what you think! 

Enjoy!
