Orla Kiely Beauty Goodies

I absolutely love the instantly recognizable Orla Kiely prints, especially her signature stem design, which I would plaster everywhere if I had my way... Therefore I fell in love with these gorgeous goodies as soon as they popped into the post box last week.
The packaging is super cute and feels luxurious, just as you would expect from the Orla brand. Immediately I  opened up the perfume, which is really light, flora scent, perfect for this time of year. The top notes contain green tea, peach and fig, which combines with rose extract and white flower together with base notes of cedarwood, sandalwood and musk. It smells expensive and spa-like without being over powering. As well as the perfume (£55/100ml) there is also a shower gel (£17.95/250ml) and body cream (£29.95) in the same fragrance, which would make such a lovely gift.
Orla has recently launched a geranium soap bar (£8/100g), scented with geranium and embossed with the stem print, which make it far too pretty to use! However, I did manage to and in my shower the blend of essential oils smelt divine whist the coconut oil helped to cleanse the skin. 

My final Orla goodie, which I have saved until last, is part of the home fragrance collection. This primrose and bergamot candle (£24.00/200g, 50 hours burn time) gives a feminine and  refreshing aroma, perfect for my dressing table. The glass is patterned with Orla's print and even comes with a cute matching candle coaster. If candle's aren't your thing, the same fragrance is available in a reed diffuser.
