The Body Shop Love Etc Perfume

I am a self confessed perfume nut. I love smelling lovely and I put time into choosing my fragrance on a given day. I like to choose a scent that matches my mood and my outfit. It might sound mad but I do it subconsciously.

I love The Body Shop’s ethos and their stand against animal cruelty so I was delighted when I heard about their new fragrance Love etc. I have read lots about it on beauty blogs so I was dying to give it a try.

What The Body Shop have to say about their perfume:

“The perfume of love as a universal force…the first ever emotional-led fragrance at The Body Shop. A highly addictive, warm and radiant fragrance which embodies the exuberance and personality of our brand”

The notes include pear, neroli, bergamot, jasmine, heliotrope, lily of the valley, vanilla, sandalwood and creamy musk

Love Etc. is a floral oriental with a hint of musk and fruit. The notes are pear, neroli, bergamot, jasmine, heliotrope, lily of the valley, vanilla, sandalwood, and musk cream. I could smell Jasmine and sandalwood straight away. After a few minutes I could smell pear.It is quite sharp initially, which I didn’t like, but after a few minutes this died down and became soft and warm.

It’s quite a mellow, pretty scent. It lasts the day on my skin. It gets a thumbs up from me.

Have you tried this scent? What is your current favourite perfume? I’d love to know!

    Tried this perfume in the Dundrum Shopping centre recently and loved it. They were handing out free samples, had to go in and buy a bottle ;) I am a big fan of Lily of the Valley and I think you can really smell that in this perfume.

    My current favourite is Marc Jacobs Daisy(the summer edition with funky stickers).
    Got it on the plane for around €39… and had been seeing the normal editions for €50/60 in boots.
    Its gorgeous, quite light which i like as i’m young. Smells kind of like green apples and summer and flowers :)

    A while back I made a visit to the Body Shop and I got a sample of this perfume. I tried it and I really liked it! I’m usually not that crazy about floral scents but this was good.

    I’ve not bought this (yet) but used a sample from a magazine about a month ago…every time I walk past the Body Shop I consider popping in to give it another whiff and maybe…possibly…grab it.
    I think my trip into town tomorrow has just become more exciting.
