Invictus by Paco Rabanne

This week Escentual.com has been taken over by the launch of Paco Rabanne’s brand new fragrance ‘Invictus’. Unlike most sports-based fragrances, Invictus has one or two interesting nuances which you can read all about in my review by simply clicking on the image above to head over to Escentual’s blog.

Whilst your there please feel free to share your thoughts and impressions of Invictus as well as your favourite sports scents. I look forward to reading your comments! Oh and don’t forget to ogle Australian Rugby Star/Hunk Nick Youngquest in the Invictus TV spot – it really is not to be missed…

Summer Staple Scents: Click to View

Summer is finally here! I’m serious, temperatures are set to hit a whopping 29ºC all across our sunny isles this weekend and what better way to celebrate the sun than with some seriously sunny scents?

My post for Escentual this week focuses on two scents I am quite liking for summer: Guerlain’s Aqua Allegoria Nerolia Bianca for the girls and Dior Homme Cologne (the new 2013 version) for the boys. So if you’re looking to zest up your summer these staple scents are not to be missed!
