I’ve been obsessed with Laura Mercier’s Crème Brûlée scent for years now. Many, many years. (I’m aging myself here!) I try and stock up whenever possible, but I’ve also been meaning to branch out into more of her other scents because I love Crème Brûlée so much, I couldn’t imagine that I wouldn’t love the others equally as much. And I was right.
I recently got the chance to play around with her new Soufflé Body Crème Sampler that’s new for the holidays and now I’m in love with three of her other scents too. The sampler has four different jars of Body Crèmes in it in four of her signature scents – Almond Coconut Milk, Vanillé, Fresh Fig and my obsession, Crème Brûlée. You guys, they all smell SO good. My second favorite is Almond Coconut Milk, which smells exactly like you would expect something with that name to smell – fresh and sweet and comforting, all at the same time. Delicious! And I’ve also recently acquired an affinity for figs after trying a fit and goat cheese pizza (amazing!) so I’m loving that scent as well. They’re all just yummy – and the jars are a perfect size to pack or throw in your bag for work or after the gym. They’re great moisturizers too because they’re not greasy at all, so I use them after my shower in the morning right before I get dressed. You can even break the set up and add a single jar to another present – my family always loves it when I do that. It’s like giving them a bonus gift!
I also tried out another one of Laura’s sets for the holidays – the Mini Kohl Eye Pencil Collection. I love all the holiday gift sets because it’s when I stock up on all my smaller sized products to travel with. This set includes five deluxe mini pencils in Black Violet, Stormy Grey, Brown Copper, Black Gold and the exclusive to this set, Stone Slate. My favorites are Black Gold and Black Violet – I’m such a fan of the smoky eye, especially for nighttime holiday parties, and these pare very well with darker shadows to really make them stand out. And the smaller size makes them so easy to pack – I love not having to choose between my favorite shades when I fly back to the east coast for the holidays. These give me the flexibility to happily pack all of them. The holidays really are a magical time!
