Do you know that feeling when you’ve just had the best holiday in your life and you don’t want it to end? I’m sure you do.
Well, my wonderful holiday in Italy came to an end but at least I have something to remind me of it. And I’m addicted.
I know many people use body moisturisers only in the colder months but my legs tend to get dry regardless of the season, so I keep using hydrating products all year round. However, the types of products I switch to are different. For example, I love using body oils in the summer because they’re hydrating, lightweight and not too oily. My boyfriend knows that, so he treated me to the Tom Ford Soleil Blanc Body Oil just before our holiday and needless to say, I’ve been using it ever since.
This is a silky, luxurious body oil that doesn’t dry down completely on me but I don’t mind it because it feels amazing on the skin. It’s nourishing and makes my skin incredibly soft. I usually massage a few drops onto damp or dry skin. Whenever I use it before bed, my bed sheets smell gorgeous on the next morning.
Soleil Blanc notes are warm, creamy and sultry. At first I wasn’t sure if I was going to like it, considering there is a hint of Coconut and if you don’t already know, I’m not the biggest fan of coconut-scented products. But like I’ve just mentioned, there is a hint of it, it just brings some sweetness to the scent but nothing too overpowering or unpleasant.
The spicy notes come from Cardamom and Pink Pepper with a hint of Pistachio and Bergamot. Ylang Ylang, Egyptian Jasmine and Tuberose create the floral combination that adds sensuality to the oil’s fragrance. Bitter Almonds, Amber and Tonka Bean put the finishing touches for a luxurious perfection.
Tom Ford Soleil Blanc is unexpected, addictive, sultry, feminine and beautiful for the summer. But I wouldn’t mind indulging in this glamorous body oil even in December. It’s a dream.
