Over the years I have come across many perfumes and alot of them I would ever use again becasue the ladies ranges always seem to floral or girly sweet for me. I usually steal some of my husbands Jean Paul Gaultier or 007 James bond scent which I am sure he is well aware of .
Lately I have somewhat found my allowance for scents changing and find myself liking alot more than I used to. My favourites at the moment are Marc Jacobs Honey and Diamond by Armani. They are being used alot and I am scared I will use them all before been able to afford a new one . They aint cheap are they?
Well today I found one perfume I got last year which I had away originally for someone for a swap box which no longer went along as well as the Givenchy I gave to my sister the other day which she is very impressed with, (I was not keen on the sweetness of that one).
Yardley Polaire is a perfume I would have not picked up if it had not been for reading some reviews previously but the price is affordable and I am glad I did.
The scent has a modern floral chypre opening with a fresh, fruity, green top note of pear and freesia with a spicy floral heart of rose, ginger and pink pepper and a sensual powdery base of patchouli, amber and balsam.
I have always thought of Yardley to be for the older generation but hey am in that generation now or catching up slowely so why not give it ago myself anyway.
I think the packaging of their products have always been rather plain and classic looking , I would love to see a different upgrade on their design and colour choices.
The bottle however is lovely . A clear glass with Diamond like lid , simple and lovely for the dressing table which is where mine will sit once I get my new room in the new house.
I am loving this scent . Although the scent is very sharp when first sprayed it soon settles into a lovely light fragrance of a slight floral powdery smell.
For the price , I think it smells and looks more pricey than it actually is and would definately buy this again.
Have you tried this perfume , will you?

I am always on the look out for light fragrances as the strong ones make me sneeze. I'll have a sniff at this one next time at Boots!
At £19.99 it's worth a try. :)

This brand takes me back to my childhood somewhat as I remember my mum wearing it. I have to say I am not too keen on strong smells as get a headache and prefer a fruit to flower smell
