A little while ago I talked about a beautiful Australian brand called Evodia (which you can read all about here). What makes Evodia unique is that the products are made from floral, fruit and bush extracts, vitamins and essential oils sourced from the Australian environment, and the products are beautiful, which you can read all about here. And today I'm excited to share with you Evodia's new scent, the Victoria Rose Collection.

This Victoria Rose collection is a very feminine and romantic collection, reminding you of a summer garden in full bloom.

The products contain:
  • Top Notes: Cassis, Bergamot, Lemon, Pomegranate
  • Middle Notes: Rose, Peony, Coconut, Patchouli, Raspberry, Jasmine, Lemon Blossom
  • Base Notes: Musk, Amber, Sandalwood

The products come packaged in simplistic white bottles and tubes, which come with pale pink rose decorated labels, illustrated by Australian botanical artist Edith Rewa.

The Evodia Victoria Rose Collection includes Hand & Body Wash, Hand & Body Lotion, Hand Cream, Body Mist, and Fragrance Roll-On.

While the Hand & Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion would be perfect in the bathroom, to use in and after the shower, I have been enjoying them as hand wash and hand lotion in my down stairs bath room - simply because I find that the bottle are super pretty, and that way I get to enjoy looking them throughout the day, and of course smell the gorgeous scent too.

The wash gently cleanses the skin thanks to soothing aloe vera, and as the wash is also PH balanced, there's no need o worry that it will dry out or irritate your hands, something I find that fragranced soaps often do. And when following with a small pump of the Victoria Rose Hand & Body Lotion, which is enriched with cocoa butter, grape seed oil and sweet almond oil, my hands are left soft and moisturised. And because of the light consistency, this cream also absorbs quickly into my hands, and without any greasiness, so I can get on with my day.

I also love that both the Hand & Body Wash and the Hand & Body Lotion come in pump bottle which makes them so easy to use, plus the large 400ml bottles will last you forever too.

When I feel my hands need a little extra care, I've been reaching for the Evodia Hand Cream, which is enriched with Sweet Almond Oil, Jojoba and Avocado Oils as well as Cocoa Butter. It is a thick and rich hand cream, which naturally takes a few moments longer to absorb into the skin than the lighter Hand & Body Lotion, but the wait is worthwhile as is super nourishing and moisturising, and leaves you hands silky soft for hours.

Then there's the Evodia Victoria Rose Body Mist, which is made with fine fragrance. Being a Body Mist, it is naturally not as strong as an actual perfume or even an eau de toilette, but it is perfect if you just want a touch of a scent, so it is also ideal on a spring or summers day. And because it comes in a large 200ml bottle you can continue to reapply during the day as needed.

But should you want a stronger fragrance, then you can always reach for the Evodia Victoria Rose Fragrance Roll-On, which is even more concentrated than the Body Mist. This little roll on great for rolling onto pulse points, and is so small its perfect for popping into your handbag for touch-ups throughout the day.

Common for all the products is that the scent continues to linger on your skin (and in the air) for long after you've used then, and of course, by using several products such as the Hand & Body Wash, Hand & Body Lotion or Hand Cream, and the Body Mist or Fragrance Roll-On, you also build up the intensity of the scent, making it last even longer on the skin.

Overall this is a really gorgeous new range from Evodia, and the scent is divine. I am not usually a big fan of pure rose scents as I find it a little 'old' and 'grandma'ish", but Evodia has with the combination of rose, citrus, musk and sandalwood, along with jasmine and patchouli, and not to mention pomegranate and raspberry, managed to create a more refreshing and youthful fruity rose version, that you can only fall in love with. And of course, you can only applaud that these Australian made products are all free from harsh chemicals including parabens and petrochemicals, and that they are cruelty free and vegan friendly too.
