SHAY & BLUE
We make our fragrances with real flowers, fruits and spices – and the imported fragrance oils Grasse in the South of France, are mixed by hand and left to mature for several months in our workshop in East London.
Atropa Belladonna Eau de Parfum Spray 100ml (£55.00)
Top Note – First Impressions Of Mesmerising Dark Cassis Berries Intoxicate And Draw You In.
Heart Note – The Narcotic Full Blooms Of White Narcissus And Jasmine From Grasse.
Base Note – In The Dry-Down, Yields The Sultry End-of-Day Secrets Of Patchouli And Rare Bourbon Vanilla.
The packaging is luxurious and modern as is the bottle. I might be wrong, but because the bottle is tinted blue, I think you can put it on display. I always keep my perfume in their boxes for fear of tainting the contents, this is just too pretty to hide away.
I find it’s easy to describe the fragrance of a cosmetic because there’s usually one distinct scent you can identify. It’s harder with perfume, it’s as if all the notes are vying for your attention.
Atropa Belladonna is no different. The first hit of fragrance is heady and over powering, but then it settles down and mixes with the natural oils in your skin (apply to the body’s warm spots, particularly at the back of the neck so you catch a hint of scent when your hair swishes) and it changes. I would say it’s a rich, spicy floral, with an oriental twist.
If you’re wondering why the name rings a bell, Shay & Blue created the widely acclaimed, best-selling, Salt Caramel fragrance. Wait list only on the QVC site.
Atropa Belladonna Body & Hand Wash, 200ml (£16.00)
Generously scented with Atropa Belladonna, with the richly decadent scent of dark cassis berries blended with the heady white flower blooms of narcissus and jasmine, on a base of rich sandalwood and patchouli. Daringly different, chic, mesmerising.
Refreshes and conditions the skin, leaving it delicately scented. A gentle foaming wash, kind to the skin.
This is way too luxurious to use as a mere hand wash! The scent is more subtle than the perfume of course, yet it lingers on the skin.
Atropa Belladonna Body & Hand Lotion, 200ml (£16.00)
Extraordinarily nourishing light lotion enriched with high performance naturals including Aloe Vera leaf extract, Cocoa Seed Butter, Shea Butter and Sweet Almond Oil. This lotion is an exceptional skin conditioner that’s easily absorbed.
This is a rich lotion, one pump goes far. It feels very silky and smooth on the skin – no doubt the combination of butters and almond oil. The scent lasts even longer than the body wash, although layer them both to ‘lock in’ the scent to the end of the day.
Eau de Parfum Spray in Black Tulip 10ml (£25.00)
Black Tulip, new for 2018, gives Shay & Blue fans the opportunity to experience a fragrance that has not even been smelt yet by the beauty editors of the major magazines.
A floral gourmand of snowdrops, cyclamen, rich black tulip, juicy plum and smooth white chocolate.
Black Tulip is a unique and modern scent. I feel this could be a unisex fragrance, although Shay & Blue’s Blacks Club Leather – the aroma of the London private member’s club, Blacks of Soho is as butch as you can get.
This is a floral fragrance, yet there’s a masculine depth to it. It’s incredibly long-lasting too, I could detect a subtle hint even after a shower the next day.
