Shay & Blue London Dandelion Fig

If you read this blog regularly, then you will know that I am obsessed with fragrances and have over the past few years moved away from my comfort zone and have found a whole load of scents that I just find incredible. I like to think a fragrance can be chosen to suit your mood, complement your outfit or and very often in my case, you wear for the memories that it recreates and evokes in your mind.

Shay & Blue is a new brand to me, I have never tried any of their products before but I know a few of my blogger friends are simply devoted to the brand. Their newest fragrance, which hits the shelves this March is called Dandelion & Fig and I adored it from the very first spritz. 


Dandelion & Fig is a unisex fragrance which is unusual, eclectic and is fresh and just stunning.
  • The top notes open with Dandelion Leaf which gives it that fresh greenness scent which when mixed with lemongrass to give it a touch a heat come together to create a scent which is so different to anything else I have tried and nothing to compare it to, it is that authentic to me.
  • The Heart Notes have a combination of Tomato Vine which again gives a hint of greenness to the scent and it is followed by Juniper which is zingy and hits you quickly before settling down.
  • The base note is all about the fig scent which is as it dries down gives such an earthy tone it grabs hold of the juniper, the Tomato Vine, the Dandelion Leaf and brings them all together so you have the earthy tones intermixed with lemongrass and juniper and it is just incredible.
For me this is a spring scent and I just absolutely adore it and cannot wait to wear it and I am secretly hoping BeautykingUK won't like it so I don't have to fight him for the bottle! Dandelion & Fig is definitely daring and different but so stunning.

The fragrance will be available from Shay & Blue Marleybone Boutique, Harvey Nichols, John Lewis or M&S in March 2017 and will be priced at £53 for 100ml or £30 for a portable 30ml size.
