Blogmas Day 13!

Today’s Marks and Spencer’s beauty advent calendar is a perfume, and I think it’s the only perfume in the calendar. It’s a 10ml bottle of the Blood Orange scent from Shay and Blue. This is a mini version of the bottles available on the M&S website, it’s available in both a 30ml bottle for £30 or 100ml for £55 so this would be worth between £5.50 to £10 depending on which price you use. The company is definitely an affordable perfume brand and uses all natural fragrances and the 30ml bottle claims to have a pound of real fruit in there. The scent is a mix of blood orange, as the name says, and musks and leather and is on the edge of being a unisex scent to me.

The Winter Cranberry scent is today’s wax tart from the Scented Seasons Shop on Etsy Twelve Scents of Christmas set. I love having these to pick out every other day and do my own advent calendar style thing with them and so far these have impressed me. The set of twelve is £15 but they’re also available individually for £1.25 where you can pick your scents.

It’s a fair sized perfume, though it always feels a bit risky including a perfume in anything like this as it’s so personal and I find a lot of them go a bit odd on my skin. This perfume is from a company called Shay and Blue, a fairly new company having started in 2012, and it’s a 10ml bottle of Atropia Belladonna.
