Firebird Bath and Body (formerly Flourish Bath and Body)
Soft, sensual, intoxicating: almond, vanilla, musk, a wisp of white chocolate. This fragrance manages to be both a soothing comfort scent and incredibly sexy at the same time (try it- you'll see what I mean). Sugary perfume haters need not apply, but lovers of all things sweet and gourmand- I think you'll enjoy this one quite a bit.
Oh, Almond Milk. What can I say about you that does you justice? This is pretty much my all time favourite perfume. I have also bought it for my mum, who is definitely not a perfume person (I think she might have had the same bottle of Tweed for about 15 years when I was a kid), and she loves it. It’s not a complex blend, but it’s warm, comforting, and I have never smelled anything else exactly like it.
In the bottle it smells like marzipan, not a scent I’m overly fond of. Once applied, the almond retreats – this is an almond perfume for people who don’t like almond. It’s a vanilla for people who don’t like vanilla. White chocolate for people who don’t like chocolate. Musk for people who don’t like musk. I’m not kidding. It smells of all these things, and yet it doesn’t.
I have always thought that this perfume perfectly captures the essence of ‘baby head’ smell. It doesn’t exactly smell like a baby’s head, but it’s that same perfect, compulsively sniffable feeling you get when you hold a baby. Or when I do at any rate.
