I’ve been looking forward to trying this fragrance ever since I heard about it. Shay & Blue White Peaches* is just a blast of summer, full of fruity, juicy notes that are making me wish the winter away. Although fragrances tend to be complex in construction even if they smell quite simple, I really like a straight forward, un-challenging scent and if you put peaches on the bottle, I just want it to remind me of peaches. Happy to say, this is exactly what it smells of at first blast.
Before you start thinking of Body Shop or Avon in the peach-sphere, it’s really nowhere near in terms of sweetness. This feels like a sophisticated take on peach that’s met its perfect partner in elderflower. I love the taste of peaches although we almost never have them in the house because nothing makes me scream louder than peach skin (except apple peel and that’s a whole other story) and so thank god for nectarines. I could drink peach juice at competitive level but I can’t easily be in the same room as one. I don’t know why the white flesh versions of either are so much nicer than the yellow but they just are.
The cool, fruity notes are offset with a woody base (silver birch) that warms it up a little although you never lose the fruit for the wood. My favourites from Shay & Blue are Sicilian Limes and Blood Oranges followed not far behind by Watermelons – I’d love to see a gooseberry and something fragrance. If you like fruit notes, this brand is yours to discover. White Peaches has launched onto QVC for £49 HERE but they stock in M&S as well if you wait a while.
