I had the most ridiculously long work week, when I arrived home to find this gift set waiting for me. Mail is always so nice to receive isn't it? Yardley London has launched a new gift set to coincide Downton Abbey's Season 4 series. I could go on and on about Downton Abbey but I will spare you all with my obsession with this drama series. All I will say is that I am in love with the fashion and I absolutely love it.
I was eager to try this fragrance as I find that all of the fragrances from Yardley are quality for their amazing price points. I don't know how they manage to keep the price points so reasonable. Perhaps they decided they would rather spend money on the product than millions upon millions on tv adverts. Out of all the Yardley fragrances that I have tried to date, Polaire is by far my favourite.
Polaire is a gentle, sophisticated, and complex fragrance. It opens up with a fresh, fruity green top notes of pear and freesia, a comforting yet exhilarating Rose, Ginger and pink pepper heart/middle note, and finally finishes off with Patchouli, Amber and Balsam. There is something very wild yet contained in this fragrance. It nicely represents the female consciousness of the roaring 20's where freedom and fun were a new and exciting concept. It is very modern but without losing the glamour and allure of the 20's. This scent is a familiar scent, but it is very youthful and glamorous at the same time.
Polaire didn't stay on my skin for long, so this one will have to be topped up quite often, but it is fantastic when you do spritz it. I'm going to keep this on my work desk to give myself a nice sweet reminder to stay fabulous!
For £19.99, you will get both the 50ml fragrance and the body lotion. They are best when layered for longevity of the fragrance. You can find them at Boots and other stocks here, or on their website http://www.yardleylondon.co.uk/polaire
