Fragrance memories – fragrance is something that we can all tie to a memory, right? My earliest memory of fragrance occurred during my teen years when I received my first bottle of perfume for my birthday. It wasn’t an expensive bottle of perfume by any means but what mattered is how it made me feel. Whenever I spritzed on that fragrance every morning before I would skip off to school, a feeling of feminine confidence came over me, in an empowered kind of way. That’s the great thing about fragrances isn’t it? It’s all about the way they make you feel. That’s why scents are tied to feelings and emotions, making a simple bottle of perfume mean so much more when you can attach them to a memory. Today, I’m exploring the Shay and Blue fragrances…
This is a reason why I love boutique fragrances – because they are are truly unique. You know that when you wear them, that you won’t run into 20 people that day out and about wearing the same exact scent.
One such fragrance brand that I’ve loved over the years is Shay and Blue, a boutique perfumery that creates incredibly unique scents made from real flowers, fruits and spices. Honestly, once you try their fragrances, you will just have to agree that there’s no other scent out there quite like theirs.
We all know that fragrances can be expensive, especially for good quality. Here’s a little secret if you are looking for a luxury fragrance for a lower price – the heralded QVC TSV. Shay and Blue have an incredible TSV (Today’s Special Value) deal launching on QVC at midnight on 2nd July that will only be available for 24 hours only (ending at midnight on 3rd July). The QVC special price will be under £40 which will save you £65 as the collection value is worth £100!
Fragrance is also another thing that can be hard to buy if you haven’t tried the brand or any of the collection previously. The Shay and Blue QVC TSV is great because the launch is a 4-Piece Portable Fragrance Collection (4x10ml) of their bestsellers which means that you get four fragrances to try and love. The fragrances are from their bestselling collection so you know that they are the most loved and purchased fragrances so it’s almost a given that you are going to love them too. The fragrances do last a long time and 10ml actually goes a long way!
Within the collection you will get Shay and Blue’s best-selling fragrances including Black Tulip, Blackberry Woods, Scarlet Lily and Blood Oranges. Also, to note that if you are looking for gender-neutral fragrances then these scents are suitable for anyone and all genders so you can share with your partner too. These are also vegan fragrances, responsibly-sourced and cruelty-free.
I think my favourite scent in the collection is Blackberry Woods. Blackberry Woods smells exactly how it says – it’s sweet yet woody, like a walk in the woods with a scent of berries in the air. It’s quite an addictive scent as well and would be perfect for date night! You can smell blackberries straightaway in the top notes which then leads way to neroli and lemon leaves in the heart, finally settling into the base notes of cypress woods.
For an uplifting spritz in the morning, Scarlet Lily is perfect and smells incredible, like you just got out of a really fragrant bath. It’s fresh and summery and perfect for a daytime scent with top notes of Lotus blossom, heart notes of Scarlet Ariadne lily bouquet and ylang ylang, as well as a warming bottom note of amber.
If you want something a bit more daring then the Black Tulip scent is for you. This is spicy floral with oriental plum, white chocolate, wood and fresh cyclamen. It’s unique and edgy, perfect for any gender.
If you like fresh and zesty fragrances then you will LOVE the Blood Oranges. It’s so uplifting and fresh with top notes of juicy orange, heart notes of hot napa leather and a base note of sultry musk, charred woods and amber. I love spritzing this first thing in the morning to wake me up and also as an uplifting mood creator any time of the day when I feel my spirits and energy begin to slump.
You can get all of these fragrances on QVC for just one day only – launching on QVC at midnight on 2nd July. Again, the deal will only be available for 24 hours only (ending at midnight on 3rd July). The QVC special price will be under £40 which will save you £65 as the collection value is worth £100! Definitely don’t miss out on this one.
