Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Rose&Rose, Pour Homme Wood&Wood

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Rose&Rose, Wood&Wood Review, Photos, Notes

Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Issey Rose&Rose ($111; macys.com) and Pour Homme Wood&Wood ($98; macys.com) launched earlier this year make for great holiday gifts for any fragrance lover. Rose&Rose is a fruity-floral composition with notes of Rose, Raspberry, Pear, Pink Pepper, Cashmere Wood, Amber and Patchouli. It's a youthful floral and a perfect spring-summer fragrance and also since I love anything rose-based, this is something I’d wear all through the year. The bottle is sleek and gorgeous just like all other Issey Miyake fragrances and the pink hue adds a very feminine touch. The opening is very soft, sweet and not overpowering. I get more of the pink pepper, pear, rose and raspberry from the first spritz. As it settles down, the creamy cashmere wood peeks through. I don’t get too much patchouli even after the scent dries down, the rose is the more dominant note which I absolutely love. Wood&Wood is an aromatic woody fragrance with notes of grapefruit, cardamom, sandalwood, Haitian vetiver, patchouli and apricot. It's a soft woody fragrance that isn’t too strong with just a hint of sweetness with average longevity. I found Rose n Rose to have more longevity though. Both these are year round fragrances and make for great holiday gifts. If you are someone like me and love rose based fragrances, I’d definitely recommend checking out Issey Miyake’s Rose&Rose.

Lancome Juicy Tubes

Lancome Juicy Tubes Review, Photos, Swatches

Lancome’s Original Juicy Tubes ($20; lancome-usa.com) are back and they pack a high shine finish with a four hour wear time in a super moisturizing base. They come in 20 shades and three finishes in an array of fun flavors. Since I love sheer lipsticks and glosses, I have been absolutely loving the formula of these. They are just a tad sticky, which also means they last longer and feel super moisturizing and comfortable. I like to use these on their own, but they are great layering glosses too. The petite tubes are great to travel with and the applicator dispenses just the right amount of gloss without much wastage. I also like how these come in different flavors, but are not overpowering both in the scent and flavor department. Overall, I absolutely love them and would definitely recommend if sheer, moisturizing glosses are something you like. They are currently on sale on the Lancome website and there is also a cute little holiday set featuring four minis that come packaged inside a limited edition mini backpack!

L'Occitane Holiday 2020 | Advent Calendar & Holiday Ornaments

L'Occitane Holiday 2020 |  Advent Calendar & Holiday Ornaments

L’Occitane makes some of the best holiday gifts and they are a great pick for anyone who loves their luxury body care. The Signature Advent Calendar ($74; usa.loccitane.com) is one of my favorite gifts every year as it comes with some of their best selling skin, hair and body care products. This year’s version is no exception and comes with some new and cult classics from the brand. I discovered some new favorites like the SOS Hair Masks, which are fabulous for dry, lackluster hair and some old favorites like the hand creams and shower gels. The hand creams especially are super travel friendly and the mini sizes are great to try out before purchasing a full size and they smell amazing! Scroll down for more pictures of whats inside the Advent Calendar!

The Holiday Ornaments ($14; usa.loccitane.com) are another favorite of mine and they come packaged inside a cute little tin that can be repurposed. These are great gifts for just about anyone as they come in some of L’occitane’s best selling ranges - Shea Butter, Almond, Cherry Blossom and Verbena. The tins are super cute and the sizes are travel friendly as well. Both the Advent Calendar and the Holiday Ornaments come packaged beautifully as well and are definitely something I’d recommend from L'Occitane’s Holiday selection.
