I get so excited when I see a new fragrance of Batiste being launched. It is one of my essential items that I use almost on a  daily basis. I sometimes wonder how I got by for so many years without Batiste. Dry shampoos these days have come a long way and don’t just make your hair look less greasy (Although trust me I have days when that’s what I use it for!). They also had volume to most hair types instantly and freshen your hair with a beautiful fragrance.

The design for Batiste’s new product, Lace (Seductive and Elegant) reminds me all things sensual. For some reason I can’t get lace stockings out of my head! However, its not in a ‘nasty’ way. In fact the beautiful salmon pink can with lace floral detailing stands out from the crowd amongst the other Batiste products and really does look rather attractive.

The new scent offers base notes of white musk, cedarwood and sandalwood which are complimented by top notes of citrus fruits, nutmeg and pink pepper. The heart of the fragrance contains stylish floral tones of rose, orchid and iris with jasmine and ylang-ylang.

I found the fragrance to be really refreshing from other Batiste products. This one reminds me more of a perfume, or scent I would wear. The other fragrances from Batiste have all been quite floral, fruity or musk like, but there was always an under tone of something fruity. In this one I can smell the jasmine and ylang-ylang and it reminds me of several of my perfumes I wear. I was even complimented and asked what perfume I was wearing – strange and I had none on but had put this one my hair that morning!

Batiste lace Dry Shampoo costs £2.99 for 200ml and can be purchased in most Boots stores (It is also available online through Boots.com)and in Superdrug outlets too.

Lots of Love,
