Shay & Blue are a brand I’ve fallen in love with over the past year. It all started with a sample in an Advent Calendar and now a full blown love fest has ensued. They are a boutique perfumery that was established in London in 2012. For a relatively new brand, they certainly know what they are doing.
EXTRACT OF PARFUM
The Extract of Parfum collection from Shay & Blue are their strongest fragrances. They contain distilled natural oils that are matured to help build the intensity of the scent. This helps to produce captivating layers of sensual pleasure.
SHAY & BLUE AMBER ROSE EXTRACT OF PARFUM – £145.00
When it comes to rose scents, I am not normally a huge fan, but this is stunning. It looks expensive, smells expensive … and ok, it is expensive. However, sometimes you really get what you pay for.
Shay & Blue describe this as a decadent, elegant and romantic fragrance and they’re not wrong. There is an unmistakable femininity to it, but with a modern edge. Amber Rose isn’t sickly or twee – instead it is beautiful and has real depth to it.
Rare May Rose from Grasse
Dulce de Leche with sweet milk tones
Fine White Amber
I love the amber tones to Amber Rose – it helps to stop it being too overpowering with the rose and the milk tones add a lovely sweetness to the fragrance. The gold bottle looks beautiful and it comes in a gorgeous blue velvet touch presentation box. The overall effect is one of pure class.
DANDELION FIG – £55.00
Another gorgeous scent from Shay & Blue is Dandelion Fig. It’s a unisex fragrance that is fresh and modern and smells gorgeous.
There’s a fruity tone that’s balanced out by the earthiness of the fig. I tend to go for this more in the Spring months, but it’s wearable for most of the year.
Dandelion Leaf and Lemongrass
Tomato Vine and Juniper
ENGLISH CHERRY BLOSSOM SHOWER OIL – £18.00
This year I’ve been all about oils and shower oils are a must have. Often I use them in the bath as well just for the fun of it.
The shower oil is made from pure Almond Oil and is beautifully scented as well as extremely nourishing on the skin. As soon as it makes contact with the water from the shower (or bath), it turns from an oil to a milk. This milk is super moisturising and leaves the skin feeling cleansed and soft.
Bergamot and Green Mandarin
Fig, Cassis, Honeysuckle and Black Cherries
Iris and Woods
All Shay & Blue products are cruelty free and made with the finest ingredients. If you want a touch of luxury, then you really need to check them out. I’m currently eying up their candles – the Black Clubs Leather one and the Blood Oranges candle sound stunning.
