Lou's Reviews :: Liz Earle Botanical Essence No. 1

Aloha Bloggerinos,

You know when you buy or are sent something reeaaallyyy good and you feel reeeaaallly excited when you think about it or look at it or play with it? Well I've got that!

I was sent this nifty little number from Liz Earle as it's Mother's Day coming up and this would be an ideal gift. Sadly, my own Mum was taken to heaven when I was 7, buuuttttt this year will be a million times better than all the other lonely Mother's Days because I will be a Mummy myself to little Baby Glitter and I'm VERY happy about that indeed.

This perfume comes beautifully packaged in a neat little box and the bottle is square and professional looking. Now, I think a some of you might be turned off by the bottle because it isn't what you would call 'pretty pretty' but I really like sciencey/nature/natural type things and this kind of reminds me of that area of life (I did a degree in Pyschology and Biology you seee, I'm not just a science geek..well, maybe a bit actually). I love that it comes so snug in it's box because you shouldn't keep your fragrances in the sunlight as it diminishes their quality.

The scent of this is fruity and zingy, a winner for someone like me who loves sweet or citrus smells. I think it's a prefect smell for Spring and Summer and makes you feel all happy and sunny. After a good few hours (ie, the zinginess lasts a long while) the scent settles into a more subdued floral smell, and I enjoy this too. I went on the website to see exactly what the ingredients were and was surprised at how aesthetically pleasing it is- it's a picture list! Woop woop! Click HERE to check that out and see all the yummy natural products this is jam packed with.

The Botanical Essence No.1 perfume retails for £40.35 and really would be a lovely present for your Mothers, Aunties or Grandmas (I thought I'd throw a couple of others in there for those that don't celebrate Mother's Day conventionally, like me) or just to treat yourself to a little Spring time gift :)

What sort of things do you do for your Mum's on Mother's Day? Am I in for lots of lovely pampering this year??




  1. I've ran out of my bottle :( Love it so much, it's the perfect scent for this time of year :) xx

  2. Awwwh glad you're looking at mother's day with a positive view
    I'm so sorry about your mom :(

  3. Oh, I adore the packaging for this! I love zingy smelling perfumes, so I might have to try this :)

  4. Definitely going to make it my mission to check out some Liz Earle stuff soon since you rate it so highly ha!
    I'm sorry to hear about your mother :(
    My mum just lost hers at the beginning of Feb so I'm really looking forward to treating her this Mother's Day - we're going to a big shopping centre so she can pick out something she likes!
    Wishing you the best of luck with the pregnancy, every post makes me more and more broody ha! :) xoxoxo

  5. I'm making my mum a "Special Mum" based book... so it's more personal than the ones in the shops.
    I was inspired by a load of your craft posts!
    Hope baby glitter comes soon!!! I'm so excited for you!

  6. Hope baby comes soon! :) Need to check this out, never seen it before.
