Holidays with a gourmand scent

18 december 2013

Are you a fan of sweet scents? That’s good, because this year, the holidays are going gourmand!

Beauty products are featuring gourmand notes of vanilla, cocoa, licorice and even macaron pastries. Now is the time to check out our selection that’s perfect for anyone who loves gourmand scents!

For chocoholics, The Body Shop presents their Chocomania line. And for everyone who prefer honeyed notes, the Honeymania line was meant for you!

Yves Rocher is offering an ‘overdose of vanilla’ with their Vanille CollectOR collection. The house also has a line called Cacao. Our fav’: the cocoa-raspberry foaming bath gel. Mmmm!

As for perfumes, Lolita Lempicka presents an enchanting collector’s edition: Eau de Minuit 2013. This gourmand-oriental fragrance intertwines licorice blossom and vanilla.

If macarons are your thing, Issey Miyake’s Pleats Please Eau de Parfum is just right for you! The juice, with floral tonalities, was inspired by a violet macaron note.

For more about the macaron trend: Nina Ricci will be unveiling ‘La Tentation de Nina’ in January, 2014. The fragrance, composed around a raspberry-macaron accord, was designed in partnership with Ladurée, one of the most famous macaron bakers in France.

Happy gourmand holidays to all!

    Outre les produits de base de vanille, de reglisse, de fruits et de chocolat dans les parfums gourmands, j'aime le miel, potiron, pomme et ananas. Honey by Marc Jacobs is a favorite of mine. Eau de Charlotte by Annick Goutal has such a gentle cocoa scent mixed with berries.
