It seems that when it comes to rose scent, there are those that love it, and those who really don’t (hate it, almost), but not than many are indifferent.
I am personally among the first group, I am a fan a good rose scented product. And although, there are tonnes on the market, there are not so many that I can’t live without.

Here are my latest discoveries, with two of them being candles. Please bare with me as I am trying to describe the scents in more ways than just “I love it so much” . After all, I am no Tania Sanchez or Luca Turin.
Jo Loves kindly sent me 2 ml samples of their fragrances when they’ve just launched, and, as you would expect, they are divine.
I would love to have this fragrance, as well now. It is light and fresh rose scent, and I think that a lot of people would enjoy it. It is simple, elegant and not overwhelming, just like all Jo’s creations. The lemon leaves bring a touch of zest-ines (I know it’s not even a word) and balances the rose well. I have a small candle but it throws enough fragrance to fill in even a
Natural deodorants have been a huge thing lately. And not only in the beauty industry but among my girlfriends, too. And most of them could not be less interested in beauty trends.

One of my best girlfriends, who is like a spokesperson for Weleda and always raves about their products, was not impressed with their deodorants (she uses baking soda or lemons now) but I’ve decide to try it anyways. Rose, remember?
So what are my impressions?
First of all,
If it is a rose scented beauty product – I have to have it! So when I’ve found out about the Matrix Oil Wonders Rose Volume range, I have ordered a shampoo straight away.
And it is brilliant! It does smell of roses, and it is a nice rose scent, in my opinion, as not all of them are. It leathers up nicely and leaves the hair shiny, glossy and smooth. I really loved it
This winter I have finished so many body lotions/creams/ butters, and I did want to do the empties feature but all those bottles got on my nerves, and I threw them away. However, I will share about one of my favourites – The Scottish Fine Soaps Company Tangled Rose Body Butter.
I actually bought it because of the name, regular readers will know that I am obsessed with rose scented beauty products, and even tea and coffee with rose! I also really liked all the products from the Scottish Fine Soaps Company that I have tried in the past so had high hopes for this body butter.
And it is nice. The scent is really lovely, it is described as “roses, amber, cedarwood and a hint of
