Yardley London Hermina EDT + Giveaway

Experts in creating high quality floral fragrances since 1770, Yardley London is delighted to introduce Hermina; an intense, feminine floral woody fragrance inspired by the ‘First Lady’ of the House of Yardley. Named after the wife of William Cleaver - heir to the finest soap and perfumery establishment in London at that time - Hermina’s father, also a William, soon became the first ‘Yardley’ to officially own the business, since the original founder tracing back to the early 17th century. New for 2016, Hermina honours the rich 245 year history of the House of Yardley in a truly modern way, whilst celebrating the high society fashionista that was Hermina Yardley.

With its beautifully designed outer box to the bottle inside, this perfume is quite simply one I was not expecting to like.  Described as follows:

"Yardley London Hermina is an addictive, intense and feminine floral woody fragrance blending pear, lemon and bergamot with basil in the top notes with a sensual heart of fig, peach, black pepper and heliotrope complemented by a warm, woody and spicy amber base". 

 Surprisingly it isn't one of those perfumes which makes you wrinkle your nose up when you spray it, instead it is quite clean and fresh with the pear and lemon notes being really noticeable at that first spray and then as it settles on the skin with the scent of fig being equally matched to the spicy amber.  It is a perfume which manages to mix the floral and fruity with the spicy so that whichever camp you sit in when it comes to perfume, this one might just surprise you into liking it!

If this sounds like a perfume you really want to try, then I have one to giveaway. There is a Rafflecopter widget below to be completed and the winner will be drawn at the end of the 2 weeks.

  10. I like that it combines woody and floral scents and that is definitely a perfume hybrid that subverts my usual perfume which is predominantly fruity.
