The latest addition to the Voyage Fragrance Collection from The Body Shop is called Fijian Water Lotus and it is a great summer scent: light, floral and And I know I'm late to the party and it is already almost Autumn and the wasps are out in force (oh gosh see THIS POST from Sera for some LOLS), but once you try it you'll be hoping the warm evenings linger a little longer.
The Body Shop sent me the Eau de Toilette (€25.95) and the Body Lotion (€15.95) to play with, but the collection also contains Perfume Oil, Fragrance Mist, Shower Gel and Body Butter. The idea is that you use a few products and layer the scent on your skin to ensure it sticks around the whole day. While Fijian Water Lotus is light and refreshing (a combination that normally disperses very quickly as opposed to a heavier arrangement) if I layer the EDT over the body lotion after a shower, it manages to stick around until well after lunch time. And the 50ml bottle isn't too heavy so it can come with me in my bag if I'm out all day.
I am rarely out all day so it lives on my dressing table. I quite like its cool blue minimalist look in amongst the general clutter. Its just very Zen, sitting there, cool as a cucumber. And the Fijian Water Lotus body lotion is fabulously cooling and refreshing, delivering a lovely hit of moisture that keep my skin moisturised all day.
Uplifting top notes of mandarin and litsea die down quickly, giving way to Fijian Water Lotus flower and Rose before blending into a light and refreshing marine accord. Perfect for the very humid muggy days that Ireland has been getting just lately. I'm loving it and its getting frequent outings at the moment. I'd say its pretty much getting the same use as my beloved Tarocco Orange.
I am loving everything The Body Shop is doing at the moment and this is no different. I will definitely be adding the Fragrance mist to my collection ( I already have the Coconut one and the Brazil Nut one).
