Liz Earle Botanical essence No 1

Out of all my perfumes, this one definitely wins the prize for best packaging! It comes in a beautiful white cardboard box, with a blue ribbon which you pull out like a drawer to reveal the perfume.

As the name suggests, the perfume smells very green, with notes of bergamont, geranium, damask rose, lavender and patchouli.

For me, it opens with a very zesty citrus scent, then develops into something a little more floral, and finally settles to a warm botanical scent with hints of wood.

As you can see from the photo, the perfume comes in a old style glass bottle, with a rounded glass lid, that reminds me somewhat of Chanel perfumes- simple yet timeless.

I normally go for sweet fruity floral scents, so it's not my usual fragrance, but since receiving the perfume, I've worn it nearly everyday as it's so easy to wear and I like that it's sophisticated yet at the same time very uplifting and unique.

Have you tried this perfume? What's your favourite perfume this Spring?

  2. Steph xox- The packaging is lovely isn't it, so much nicer than the usual cardboard box. I know what you mean, when you think of Liz Earle the first thing that comes to mind is skincare, but the perfume is definitely worth a sniff x

  5. I have this perfume, and I really love it when it's first sprayed but then I find it a little overpowering generally. It does depend partly on how I'm feeling though and it seems to smell different on different people too! x

  6. Rachel- That's a shame. It's frustrating when you like the initial scent but not the base notes. A few people have commented on how it never seems to smell the same x

  11. Patricia- I sprayed some 7-8 hours ago and can still smell it on myself, but if I was going out, I'd reapply so it was a bit stronger x

  14. Gorgeous bottle - I normally go for more floral scents, too, so it's interesting that you like it. It's just annoying that I can't go and sample it anywhere! x
