Just in time for their 150 anniversary, Roger & Gallet created the Fleur D’Osmanthus Embellissante Beauty Oil* to join my favorite Osmanthus range.
I just adore this scent! This is my second bottle of fragrance and think i already re-purchased three times the shower gel. Love the light citrusy-floral scent, its so unique and uplifting, apparently it has stress reduction properties so no wonder i drain myself in it.
Was very pleased when i read the ingredients to notice that there is no silicone amongst them. I’m a silicone lover as the next person, but for a touch up, multipurpose product i would prefer to be pure and naturally hydrating.
With three precious oils: apricot kernel oil, sesame oil and sweet almond oil it makes a perfect product for skin and hair.
I haven’t used it on my face yet, but sparingly sprayed it all over the chest, arms and legs after the shower. Because it is a dry oil, it gets absorbed in seconds leaving a dewy, radiant, perfumed skin behind. I tend to lock it, by putting the matching Fleur D’Osmanthus lotion over it – so the oils can nourish deeply the skin. If you don’t lock the oil, it gets stuck on the top layer of the skin and gets evaporated in a couple of hours. This is a tip for all kinds of oils, learned it from my friend who is a Decleor Specialist.
Also, every night i spray twice in my hands and then moisturize my hair, insisting on the ends. Even himself commented how beautiful my locks are scented. It didn’t leave my hair heavy or oily, i used a tiny bit on wet or dry hair mainly on my ends.
To celebrate the 150 anniversary, Roger & Gallet also put together a beautiful book about all their products and the company’s history. I was so excited to receive this book, eternally grateful to the R&G PR (hi Paula!) as i am a collector of beauty history books. It will look so pretty along side my Lancome and Clarins one!
Such a nice touch to have samples of perfumes at the end of the book, love love love!
