One thing I do love alot of is body sprays/fragrances. I like myself to smell fresh and clean and can't imagine getting out of the bath or shower and not spraying something over my body to be honest and I buy them often so I have a few on the go to choose from.
One range of body fragrances/sprays that I do find to be of superb quality and of lovely fragrance are the Yardley ones. For a long time I avoided these as the names of them and the fragrances are actually rather old fashioned however after getting one as a little gift a while back I have set it upon myself to try them all out. Everything about this range, for me is quality and at the moment the entire range of the body sprays are on offer in Asda at a pound a can opposed to usually costing about £2.99 in places like Boots.
The can this product comes in is tall and cylinder and dark green and cream in its colourscheme with a dark green plastic lid that simply pulls on/off covering a white push button sprayer which is aeresol action. On the front of the can we are told that it is Yardley 'London' Lilly Of The Valley Refreshing Body Spray and that it is 75ml in size (2.6fl.oz). On the back of the can other information listed includes being told how to use it, cautions and ingredients are given (as well as some information listed in foreign languages) and contact details for the manufacturer are stated. This in appearance isn't really all that feminine or pretty but does look 'posh' and a wee bit serious and very good quality and stylish and to me I feel that this is very much aimed at the older user.
Well to use this of course you simply spray it at about arms distance from your body. This sprays out very evenly and rather wet and dries almost instantly leaving no feeling of it on your skin at all....and thats it job done!
The scent of this is wonderful, mature and just really well blended. It has a sort of musky floral smell to it which is naturally sweet but very much of lily of the valley! It doesn't smell fake or anything like that and the fragrance is rich and very detectable all day long on the skin which is fabulous and just shows the good quality that it Yardley in my opinion.
I find that I can use less of this to get scented up then many other body sprays that are on the market and I simply appreciate it to be of really excellent quality as I do all the Yardley body sprays actually!
I do recommend this, particulary for us more mature ladies, its simple style in a can its just a shame the packaging isn't just a bit more prettier!
Available in all good chemists and supermarkets etc.
