Summer Perfection: Guerlain Terracotta Eau Sous Le Vent
I’ve had this Guerlain fragrance kicking around for several weeks now, but wanted to wait until the weather was really hot to give it a try – somehow it just seemed wrong to be applying it in the rain! In fact, it’s not entirely a fragrance; the wording on the enclosed leaflet bills it as a ‘soothing moisturising mist and refreshing tan enhancer’. The scent is everything tropical – thanks to Tiare flower and gardenia and reminds me of holidays, while the mist formula contains hydrating ingredients (making it slightly oily on application) to soothe hot skin. Included in the formulation is a tan intensifying complex, making it virtually a holiday essential. What I really love most about this product though, is that it is truly glamorous – a beautiful bottle, an amazing perfume, a skin hydrator and tan booster in one – and goes back to what I feel luxury beauty products should be all about. It doesn’t make you look younger, get rid of spots, cure cellulite or plump the skin – it’s just sheer beauty indulgence. Lovely. £31.
