Like a lot of women I love flowers. Not to say that I expect a bouquet of flowers or anything like that, but flowers just have a way of lifting spirits – they are beautiful to look and have such a unique fragrance. When it comes to perfumes I’m always quite drawn to scents with a subtle floral scent – they just make me feel happy! Yves Rocher’s Moment de Bonheur Perfumed Body Lotion uses the most feminine and recognized flower – the rose. But have you heard of a ruffle rose? It’s something between a Peony and a Wild Rose and is the main scent of this lovely body lotion. A touch of happiness in a bottle!
GS Approved: The ruffle rose used to make this body lotion is called the Centefolia and means one hundred petals. This flower is also known as the “May Rose” since this is the time of year it comes into bloom. Only a few dozen kilos of these flowers are available each year which makes this scent as unique as the individual who wears it.
Inspiration: Wedding season is typically in the summer which means there are many brides planning their big days now! This beautiful white ruffle rose wedding cake by New York City guru Sylvia Weinstock is sure to make an elegant statement.
