I hadn’t planned on purchasing anything from Boots (Jabriya) but it was right across the street from my salon and I figured what the hey. I stepped in for a quick peek and as you can see, snagged the cutest little products! By now, you’ll know that I’m quite fond of themes, so once I picked up the Pretty Patisserie Body Butter Trio (which I’d been eyeing initially), I grabbed a few other vanilla-scented products to fit in with the theme… in my head (lawl).
Aura Loewe Floral
The most floral variant of Aura Loewe. An Aura full of secrets and subtleties, contrasts and contradictions. A feminine and inspiring eau de parfum where a floral bouquet based on violet, rose and jasmine stands out. The unique and unmistakable essence is brought by the carrot seeds, used for the first time in a LOEWE fragrance, as well as the emblematic note of LOEWE leather.
Either you have it or you don’t.
Head : carrot seeds, bergamot, lemon, green chord
Heart : violet, rose, jasmine, orange flower
Base : vanilla, musk, patchouli, Loewe leather
I was at the Avenues Phase III (for the release of H&M x The Weeknd Collection) when I decided to check out the Bath and Body Works branch over there, as well. To get to B&BW, I usually have to cut through Victoria’s Secret. While there, I noticed that Victoria’s Secret were also having an offer on their fragrances (Buy Two Get One Free) so I decided to take advantage of that deal. With that being said, I hate the newer look of their bags! It’s all polka-dotty and whanot. What happened to the adorable stripe-y bags? The new ones are just hideous!
Since I was at the Avenues Phase III anyway (H&M x The Weeknd), I figured I’d check out the Bath & Body Works on that side too. According to the Privileges App, B&BW were having this offer where you could purchase three items (Shower Gel, Body Lotion, Fine Fragrance Mist) for the price of two. Once again, in typical Bath & Body Works fashion, the offer was only applicable on select items (none of the newer collections), and would only last for the weekend. I didn’t want nor need anything, but since I rarely visit the Phase III branch, I figured I’d take a quick peek since I was there.
