I’m a huge fan of refreshing, summer, fruity fragrances, there’s something about a sweetness to a perfume that I just adore and it always makes even a rainy day better, and Shay & Blue’s newest scent, White Peaches is a beautiful and delicate fragrance that is basically a summer breeze in a bottle.
What I love about Shay & Blue, other than the fact that all their fragrances are handcrafted in England with real flowers, fruit and spices, is how their scents are simple, elegant and refreshing, and their prices are more affordable than say Jo Malone London, which FYI, Shay & Blue’s founder Dom De Vetta used to be their global general manager. Plus, when I met Dom at the launch for this fragrance I was really taken with his passion for developing perfumes and how he strives to offer modern and fresh scents with perfumer, Julie Massé, that are cruelty-free, something I always look for in a beauty brand.
This new fragrance, White Peaches is unexpected, it combines the juicy fruity notes of soft ripe peaches which has a unique floral sweetness with the refreshing elderflower granita and the earthy base notes of silver birch wood to create a light, cooling fragrance that is perfect for summer.
I don’t think I’ve ever worn a peach-based fragrance before, but it really adds a sweet hint to the scent without being overpowering like some floral hues, while the addition of the elderflower makes it refreshing and delicate.
If like me you want your perfume to evoke memories, be playful and flirty, without being overpowering then you really have to try this gorgeous fruity blend that might be lightweight but it has a real lasting power about it that I was very impressed with how it coped in the heat.
Shay & Blue – White Peaches Fragrance Notes
- Top notes: juicy soft peach exudes the essence of summer
- Heart notes: cooling elderflower granita lifts the sweetness
- Base notes: earthy silver birch wood lingers for a warm finish
The Shay & Blue White Peaches collection comes in three fragrance sizes, a mini 10ml at £25, which is great for when you are travelling and for your handbag, a 30ml at £30, and a 100ml at £55. I just adore the signature smoky blue glass bottle of Shay & Blue, it looks so elegant on my dressing table.
There is also a rich almond hand crème in the White Peaches collection for £10 and I just love the idea of massaging this gorgeous fragrance onto my hands, and I do adore almond oil-based hand creams are they are so nourishing.
