Kiehls Aromatic Blends Collection

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

When I think of Kiehls, I immediately think of their bestselling body moisturiser, Creme de Corps (which I happen to think is highly overrated, but that's another blog post). I recently had a look at their latest collection of products and was keen to find out more about the brand.

 The new Aromatic Blends Collection sees the release of four new scents:

Fig Leaf & Sage
Nashi Blossom & Pink Grapefruit
Orange Flower & Lychee
Vanilla & Cedarwood





Now I love the smell of vanilla. Candles, room sprays, perfumes, you name it - if it has vanilla in it, my nose is in it! It also brings back memories of when I was younger, when my brother and I would sneakily scoop eat ice-cream straight out of the tub - much to our mother's despair.

So naturally, the Vanilla & Cedarwood Aromatic Mist was definitely my fave of the four new scents, and I was really pleased to be given a bottle to try. I can't get enough this, the warm sweet vanilla notes work so well with the soft, woody hues of cedarwood.  I'm sniffing my wrist and groaning in appreciation as I type this post. I prefer this as an evening scent, or to wear on cooler days as I fear it'll be a little overpowering in warmer weather.




There are also matching body lotions and body cleanser available in the same scents too. The body cleanser is pretty good. The scent (vanilla & cedarwood, again) was pleasant enough, didn't smell particularly synthetic. I wasn't so impressed with the body lotion - far too light in consistency for me and reminded me of a popular high street brand which begins with 'V' and costs far less.


I'd recommend you check the scents out, they're the stand out product in this collection for me.
