Rituals White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren Fragrance Sticks

Any Saturday we're in town, we always end up in Arnotts and I always have to visit the Rituals counter in the beauty hall.  Over the years, mam, Joanne and I have fallen in love with the brand and have been trying out different products, each one better than the last.  It's gotten to the point when we were in on Saturday and I went to pay for this here product I'm going to tell you about, that the sales assistant asked which one of us was getting married.  I was like "How did you know?!  We hadn't said anything about weddings!"  Turned out mam had been in with her on the Thursday and filled her in and she remembered mam.  Mad Ted!

Anyway, I'm here to tell you about this.  The White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren fragrance sticks.

I've gone through so many room diffusers from Rituals over the years and we all know of my love affair with the Mei Dao Organic White Lotus & Yi Yi Ren body cream.  So when having a sniff of all the Fragrance Sticks, I immediately recognised this one as being the perfect match to my beloved body lotion!

Now, I bought the small version to make sure it was going to be nice, which it is, and I'll be buying the bigger version when this runs out, but I had a sneaking suspicion I'd already owned this scent before, but don't remember it smelling like this.  And sure enough, I have a large version of it sitting in my living room, but it doesn't smell like this one.  The packaging is also different, so I'm not sure if they've just repackaged or reformulated it, but the old version I have smells more powdery compared to this version which smells light, bright, floral, calming and just amazing.  It's not overpowering and I think the small version which was €9.50 I believe is the perfect size for a bedroom.  When I get the bigger one, it'll be placed downstairs for everyone to smell!

My bedroom is the place to be now and I don't think I can explain how obsessed I am with this scent. My room and body smell like a spring day and I bet if you try either of them, you'll fall in love.  Fact.  

Go to Arnotts and smell both of them.  I really want to see if there's a matching shower gel and slowly make my way through the gorgeous range!

  3. Sounds gorgeous!! Is the body cream expensive? Love the idea of a diffuser in the bedroom instead of candles!
