My sister and I were kindly sent a selection of perfume and skincare samples from Lynn over at Fascination Perfumery.
The perfumes samples we received were Givenchy – Very Irresistible, John Galliano -Parlez Moi D’Amour, Acqua Di Parma – Iris Nobile, Molinard – Nirmala and Jimmy Choo – Jimmy Choo. The skincare sample we received was Shiseido – Benefiance Wrinkle Resist 24 Day Cream SPF15.
We gave the Shiseido sample to our mum to test out. Our mum liked the cream and said it was easily absorbed into the skin. The packaging for the cream says that it is an age defense moisturiser to be used during the day. It will help to protect your skin from damage which is caused by external factors that can age you – such as UV rays. It says that the cream will dramatically reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles and keep your skin moisturised all day long, even in dry conditions. The cream contains Oxybenzone. I have looked through the Fascination Perfumery website and it is not currently available to buy on the website. I am sure if you contact Lynn she would be happy to help source it for you. I will give the contact details for Lynn from Fascination Perfumery at the end of this review.

My sister and I both tested out all of the perfume samples and our favourite one is the Jimmy Choo perfume. We liked the fruity smell and we would definitely buy this perfume! It costs £39 for a 40ml bottle, £49 for a 60ml bottle and £67.99 for a 100ml bottle. It is expensive so it would be the kind of thing that would make a special birthday present. We don’t normally like the same perfumes so you know it must be nice if we both liked it. The perfume has a fruity chypre scent and the heart note is tiger orchard, the top notes are pear nectar and sweet italian orange and the base notes are toffee and indonesian patchouli.

We thought the Acqua Di Parma Eau De Parfum Iris Nobile was a sophisticated scent that is more suited to the mature lady. It is an intense floral fragrance with Iris, Ylang Ylang, Patchouli, Vanilla and Oak Musk. You can buy it here. The prices start from £51.06 for a 50ml bottle of Eau De Toilette.
The Nirmala fragrance by Molinard was very delicate and ideal to be used during the day. It doesn’t currently seem to be available on the Fascination Perfumery website but I’m sure if you contact Lynn she will be able to let you know if she can source some for you.

We found the Very Irresistible fragrance by Givenchy to be a grown-up scent and we thought it would be an excellent perfume for wearing when you are all dressed up and going out for the evening. We both liked the scent and would consider buying it again. Fascination Perfumery say that Very Irresistible is the World’s first floral aromatic perfume. It is a fragrant mix of Star Anise and Roses. The prices start from £34.21 for a 30ml spray bottle of Eau De Toilette.

Finally, the last sample we received was a favourite with both of us. Parlez-Moi D’Amour by John Galliano is very summery and fruity. We thought it was fresh and a hint musky. It has scents of Blueberry, Ginger, Jasmin Sambac, Turkish Rose, Musk and Patchouli Indonesia. the fragrance lasted for ages on the skin and my sister really adored this scent. The perfume doesn’t currently seem to be available on the Fascination Perfumery website but like I have said before I am sure Lynn would be happy to answer any questions you may have regards the fragrance and whether or not she can source it for you.
