The festive season is so alive you can smell it in the air, almost grab it with your hand. BUT, thankfully I am not here with yet another Christmas post – WAHOO! This week All Beauty sent me a selection of Molinard’s best selling fragrances to share with you all! From what I can see they’re all currently half price on the website which is a big bonus too!
I would like to preface this post with, I am INSANELY picky with my fragrances. I don’t really favour one type of smell over another, but once I smell something I generally have intense feelings one way or another. Also, I’ve been brutally honest in my feelings about each fragrance – as you’ll tell as you read. So to balance out my pickiness, I’ve recruited my better half to also give opinions on each one. I’ll call my partner P from here onward … okay, enough babbling, enjoy!
Think fresh, flirty, femininity, youth and lots of floral tones. Nirmala’s scent and bottle leave a very luxe impression, I think this one was my favourite of the bunch.

Fleur De Chocolat
Think chocolate. This literally smells exactly like chocolate. I’m not sure I’d like it as perfume, maybe a home scent?
~ Buy it for: Chocolate lovers.
~ Me: 1/10 for people, 9/10 for the smell but not sure where I’d use it? I think the house smelling like this would just make me wanna eat???
