All fragrances in this post were gifted in exchange for review. All opinions are my own and my other half's.
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???
~ P: 9.5/10 but I’d only use it around the house
