My favourite shower gel ever is the AERIN Rose Body Wash and so I was absolutely thrilled to try out the Honeysuckle which is a plant that I have really fond childhood memories of. And it is SO good looking! Here’s the low down on the AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle Collection.
Doesn’t it look great?! Well it smells great too. “From the South of France to the Amalfi Coast, take a special journey through lush flowers, shimmering beaches and clear blue waters.” Yes – I am there!
AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle Notes
The fragrance is a beautiful blend of sweet Honeysuckle with grapefruit, Italian Bergamot, Mandarin Oil, Bourgeon de Cassis, Lily of the Valley, Gardenia, Jasmine Sambac Absolute and Ambrox with Musk.
First off, I love Honeysuckle itself. The garden of my main childhood house was filled with it and it holds a very special place in my heart. It is such a fragrant plant and I could even smell it before I arrived home. Next it has Bergamot which I adore. I find it so motivating and uplifting and it can put me in a good mood in a second.
The AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle blend has a gorgeously green freshness about it which perfectly balances the floral core, and it all sits on a wonderfully creamy base of ambery musk.
The body wash (£36) is gorgeous. You only need a tiny bit and it fills the bathroom with its beautiful scent. It doesn’t pack quite the same punch as my favourite Rose Body Wash, which literally fills the entire house, but it’s very lovely and probably a lot less overpowering in fairness.
The AERIN Mediterranean Honeysuckle Body Cream (£40) is so good – it a wonderfully luxurious texture, ultra moisturising and I love using matching lotions and body wash to really build up long lasting fragrance. You then just need the lightest spritz of the matching Eau de Parfum Spray (£88) to lock it all in. Amazing!!
And it all looks so good in my bathroom. The packaging is inspired by the tiles of Capri and was designed exclusively for AERIN by artist Sitki Gulergun. It’s stunning.
