The Body Shop kindly sent me a bottle of their new scent (more about this later) called Love Etc. but I keep calling it Love Actually…

I am no good at dissecting scents, but I can tell you if I like something or not. When I am on the perfume counter I spritz, sniff and shake…my head that is. Its either a yes or a no.
This scent has..
…the following notes:
Notes of pear, neroli, bergamot – combine to create the fragrant top notes. provide the initial scent of the fragrance.
Notes of jasmine, heliotrope, lily of the valley – combine to create the middle notes that vibrate across the fragrance. are the heart notes of the fragrance.
Notes of vanilla, sandalwood, creamy musk – combine to create the base notes of the fragrance. tend to linger on the skin longer than the other notes.
Basically it smells like vanilla to me, but a very lovely warm vanilla. I am fond of those sweet scents (its not sickly) so it suits me very well. I also thought it lasted pretty well until I showered again (which is a day. Honest).
The packaging (the multi coloured love hearts) is super cute but the bottle is a bit dated. However, its a compact shape, so easy to carry round in the bag if you so wish.
You can buy it here for £11.70.
