As the seasons change, so should your choice of fragrance and Liz Earle’s new scent is certainly one to be sniffed at. The follow-up to the floral fragrant No1, No15 is beautifully sensual, spicy and perfect to lift the autumn and winter blues.
It’s made up of a blend of 15 precious botanicals (hence the name) and is packaged in a gorgeous cream box that cleverly folds out to reveal illustrations of the perfume’s 15 ingredients. It is one perfume box I would not discard easily – far too pretty. The feel and look of the bottle itself is elegant too and is distinctively different from Liz Earle’s first fragrance.
The 15 notes are Bergamot, Cedar wood, Patchouli, Guiacwood, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Cypriol, Siam Benzoin, Damask Rose, Elemi, Cinnamon Leaf, Clove Bud, Pink Pepper, Bourbon Vanilla and Vetiver, with 90% directly derived from natural ingredients. It sure makes for spectacular list but one that harmonises so well.
While No1 was floral and chic, No15 sits at the other end of the scale as the more feisty sister. At first it reminded me of DKNY’s Delicious Night (a favourite of mine), but while the deeply sexy Delicious Night lingers strongly on the skin, No15 purrs softly as a warm, cosy scent whether it is worn during the day or in the evening and with Christmas just around the corner, would make for a perfect present.
No15 is available from Liz Earle online and John Lewis stores priced at £45 for 50ml.
You may or may not know that Liz Earle has brought out a special edition Cleanse & Polish in rose and lavender in collaboration with the Prince’s Trust.
If you are a fan of the iconic hot cloth cleanser, then I’m sure you will be interested in getting your mitts on this.
I’ve used Liz Earle’s classic Cleanse & Polish many times and in comparison, I found the rose and lavender feels better to use. The lavender scent is very soothing and the cleanser is lusciously more creamy. I don’t use a muslin cloth any more but a hot flannel, which worked perfectly well with this cleanser.
This limited edition Cleanse & Polish is priced at £19.75 for 150ml and is available from Liz Earle online. Every bottle sold, £2 will go towards supporting the work of the Prince’s Trust.
