What Is It? Green Tea Scent Spray by Elizabeth Arden is a mid range ‘uplifting and energizing’ fragrance. With top notes: caraway, fruity rhubarb, lemon, orange zest and bergamot. Middle notes: cool minty peppermint, green tea, sweet jasmine, spicy carnation, fresh fennel and crisp celery spice. Base notes: oak moss, musk and amber.

Why Did I Buy It? I bought this fragrance a few years ago when Elizabeth Arden had first launched Green Tea, and was instantly struck over the fresh, clean scent that other brands had never really delivered.

Where Did I Buy It? Duty free in an airport (cannot remember which one!).

How Much Is It? £26 RRP, however fragrancedirect.co.uk are currently doing it for £12.

Overall Opinion: This is my go to fragrance for the summer, day or night. It’s a light, fruity, cheerful scent that can do no wrong in my eyes (or nose!). I’ve seen that they do body lotions and other variations of the original fragrance, and when my bottle runs out I’ll endeavour to get another.

O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Skull & Glossbones

What Is It? O.P.I Nail Lacquer in Skull & Glossbones is a high quality nail polish.

Why Did I Buy It? This was my first ever purchase of an O.P.I product due to the brands reputation, after looking at countless swatches I saw this colour and fell in love.

Where Did I Buy It? ASOS

How Much Is It? I think it was £13.50

Overall Opinion: When it comes to nail polish I’m not a girly girl with the peppermint greens, pastel pinks and lemon yellows. I like my colours rich and dark! That isn’t good for the spring/summer season and feel that Skull & Glossbones personally bridges the gap for me, by being relevant and pastel yet doesn’t fall into the normal summer cliché. I apply two coats and usually it lasts me a week, the bottles are a generous 15ml and I only hope I can repurchase when my bottle is empty. Could perhaps be a little cheaper.
