I have another exciting new range from The Body Shop to bring to your attention today: Polynesian Island Tiaré*. As you guys well know by now, I am a big fan of The Body Shop and most recently I have been loving their Vitamin E Aqua Boost Sorbet (review here) and the Drops of Light range (review here), both of which I have incorporated into my everyday morning routine (which I may do a post on for you shortly).
So, my thoughts on the Polynesian Island Tiaré range:
Firstly, a note on the title –Polynesian is an adjective of Polynesia which is a sub-region of Oceania, a collection of a thousand islands scattered over the central and southern Pacific Ocean. Tiaré is the name of a flower found on the island of Tahiti and is celebrated as the flower of affection. During special ceremonies and holidays, this flower is worn by both men and women, as well as given to guests in Tahiti as a sign of welcome.
As a scent, tiaré is quite hard to describe so I asked Google what it thought and a description came up with, ‘heady and hypnotic’ as well as ‘a dominant floral ingredient that awakens and excite the senses.’ And I completely agree. While it is a sweet floral scent, it’s quite a deep level of sweetness so it’s not like your traditional floral fragrance that’s light and airy. This is definitely exotic and if you’ve holidayed where the tiaré flower can be found, this will be your ultimate holiday scent to take you back to that place.
So with all that being said, if you like your deep heady floral scents you are going to love this range and all three of the products I have been given to try (shower gel, body cream and eau de toilette) do not disappoint and for me are instant hits. Of the three, the most subtle is the shower gel as while it is still deliciously fragrant, it’s not as dominating as the Body Cream which is thick, rich and creamy. As a combination, these two work really well together if you wanted your skin to have a pleasant exotic floral aroma about it that will take you through most of the day. The Eau de Toilette on its own is also beautiful and as mentioned above, it will be a gorgeous summer fragrance for many, so definitely one to check out if you’re on the hunt for something new this year.
In summary, it’s got to be said (if it wasn’t already bleedin’ obvious) that I am completely in love with this range and I’ll be using the products across the summer months without fail.
Will you guys be checking this range out when it hits stores soon?
Until next time x
