I experienced Shay & Blue for the very first time thanks to the Latest in Beauty Dream Box in collaboration with British Beauty Blogger which included a tiny sample of their Framboise Noir fragrance which I fell in love with. The newest Shay & Blue fragrance is English Cherry Blossom which couldn’t be more perfect for a Spring fragrance launch. The Shay & Blue English Cherry Blossom Fragrance is available in two sizes; a 30 ml £30 and an 100ml £55 size and can be purchased directly from the Shay & Blue website which offers free delivery on all UK orders. The bottles are so beautifully presented in a blue gift box complete with a striped a bow which would make for a stunning gift.
The Shay & Blue English Cherry Blossom Fragrance contains top notes of bergamot and green mandarin which is said to give a sparkling citrus lift to the pink blossoms. With heart notes of fig, cassis, honeysuckle and black cherries and base notes of iris and woods. All Shay & Blue fragrances are handcrafted in England and are made with real flowers, fruit and spices which I really love as it makes them so much more unique and special compared to other fragrance brands.
When it comes to fragrance, I tend to lean towards woody and spicy scents as I’m not really a big floral fan but after trying this Cherry Blossom fragrance, I may well have been converted as I absolutely love it. It’s a lot more delicate than my typical go-to fragrances are but I think that’s why I love it so much as it really does remind me of beautiful, dainty cherry blossoms which scatter across our garden throughout Spring. I think some floral scents can smell a little ‘mature’ shall we say, but this is a lovely fruity floral with a little zest which would appeal to all ages. Not only is the fragrance beautiful, but the packaging is exquisite with a blue glass bottle, and gold metal lid with a blue plaque; it really does stand out amongst my other fragrances, and I’m really looking forward to trying more of their fragrances.All products featured on Gemma Etc. are PR samples or gifted items, unless otherwise indicated.
