Coming Soon from Korres: Iris Lily of the Valley Cotton Collection
Naturally gorgeous Greek brand Korres are about to add another EDT and accompanying body care products to their fine fragrance collection and have sent some of the beautifully packaged goodies my way for sampling. This time around it's Iris Lily of the Valley Cotton. Korres say that it's part of is part of the their 'ongoing effort to eliminate potential exposure to synthetics such as polycyclic-musk (PCM), nitro-musk and phthalates' I say, if something smells this good and is actually good for me too then sign me up.
The scent reminds me of hopping into a freshly made bed after a long bath, it's clean and comforting, definitely softer than the musky, sensual scents I usually go for but I'm loving it.
Each of the three products compliment each other perfectly, without becoming overpowering. Fancy a closer look?
The moisturising and perfumed shower gel from the range (€9.88) has a thin consistency but lathers softly and smells divine in the heat of the bathroom. My skin was squeaky clean after use without a hint of dryness, as can happen with perfumed shower gels.
The body milk from the collection (€12.36) is more a cream than a milk but beautifully soft and scented on the skin. It soaks in easily leaving no nasty residue and works brilliantly with the EDT on the neck and décolletage to prolong the fresh, clean scent for the entire day.
While the EDT itself (€35.83) is not the prettiest bottle in my collection, it's probably the prettiest scent. Powdery and soft yet not grannyishly so, I've actually been accosting people to let them smell it. It's one of the most understated and subtle perfumes I own but it makes such a refreshing change that it'll be in regular rotation from now on.
Iris Lily of the Valley Cotton will launch at the end of the month on Bath & Unwind.com and Asos.com, if fresh cotton is your thing or if you're looking for something a little different then I'd say check these beauties out.
Have you tried anything from the Korres brand yet? Have you recommendations for me?
