I haven’t met a Nuxe fragrance I haven’t loved gals. They bring me so much joy, so many memories, they can change my mood in seconds and I wanted to give them some love back, because they’re keeping me going right now!
Now, as always, I can tell you all of the notes in perfumes to beat the band, but I always find myself explaining how a fragrance makes me feel. I really do attach memories to scents and it’s why, at this surreal time of our lives, I’m not sticking to one scent, because I don’t want to wear just one and then later in the year, go to wear it again and think ah yes, this smells like the time in my life where I couldn’t leave the house and would get severe rage at those who I’d meet on my walk who wouldn’t adhere to social distancing rules. No, my beloved fragrances deserve more than that. So I’m alternating them, picking different ones depending on my mood and Nuxe’s offerings have been keeping me going in recent weeks.
Nuxe Le Matin Des Possibles
Nuxe Le Matins Des Possibles (€49.50) is the most lovely morning time fragrance, as you might expect from the name – the morning of possibilities. This has notes of orange blossom, one of my favourite notes when it comes to scents and smells like green, springtime goodness. Bright, fresh, florals and an instant mood booster, I’ve been spraying this when I need a hit of energy, and do not judge me, but I’ve been spraying this before going onto video calls to give me a pep in my step and it works ok? It gives you that instant feeling that you get when the first cup of coffee hits your soul and works its magic, or you know that feeling where you’ve sat down at your desk, feeling all motivated and have written out your to do list for the day and you know you’re going to get loads ticked off? It smells like positivity, happiness and makes me ready to tackle the day ahead. There’s a gift set in this with the perfume and candle for €49.50, so you get the candle for free!
Nuxe Sun Delicious Fragrant Water
Nuxe recently brought out the Nuxe Sun Delicious Fragrant Water in a 30ml size which is a great way of trying a new scent without investing in a full sized bottle, and this is where I know that Nuxe and I have an understanding. See I’m known to carry multiple full sized bottles of perfume around with me in my handbag. This can get heavy, but as I love chopping and changing my scents depending on how I’m feeling, I need them with me all the time. I’ve a full sized bottle of this over in Spain for the next time I’m over and now this 30ml bottle fits perfectly into my handbag. This is sunshine in a bottle and makes me smile every single solitary time I wear it. It has notes of sweet oranges and petitgrain, coconut, tiare flower, vanilla and musk and if you’ll excuse me, after typing that out and spraying it on me, I’m ready to book a holiday. It’s pure joy and trust me when I say you’ll love this and if you spray it whilst sitting out in the back garden, and close your eyes really hard, you’ll be on a tropical island … Kind of.
Nuxe Prodigieux le parfum
I can see myself using up my Prodigieux Le Parfum (€35/30ml, €49.50/50ml) very soon because while I can’t even think about holidays at the moment, I can smell like one. If you love the scent of Nuxe’s iconic Huile Prodigieuse (which I now pronounce Hooly Prodijoosy), then you’re going to love this. It has notes of orange flowers, magnolia and vanilla which all work together harmoniously to become a scent that transports you to somewhere summery and beautiful. This smells like holidays, pure and simple. I recently found out that in Germany, they see this as a winter scent which is mad, because to me, it’s summer, hot summer, hot summer where I’m not sweating rings around myself. This comes in a 30ml travel sized version too along with the regular 50ml bottle. I first wrote about this back in 2014, so my love affair with it has been going for 6 years and we’re very happy together! This is an iconic Nuxe fragrance, and is so worth treating yourself to gals.
Nuxe Body Relaxing Fragrant Water
Nuxe Body Relaxing Fragrant Water (€12) is one of those delicate, just had the best shower of my life, used all of my fancy bits, put on fresh pyjamas, and not only that, I’ve also changed the sheets, fragrances. We’re talking an instant soothing and calming waft of tranquility that comes with this beaut. Coconut sorbet, white flowers and wild vanilla which blends together beautifully to give me that comforting feeling that something like baby powder does. You know that familiar feeling where you know everything is going to be ok? That’s what this Nuxe fragrance smells like. And again, they’ve brought this out in a 30ml size for anyone looking to test it out (carry it around in their handbags).
Nuxe Le Soir Des Possibles
Nuxe Le Soir Des Possibles (€49.50) is ready and waiting to go for when we’re allowed to go out at night again. Right now, no soir has any possibles other than staying inside, but sure listen, things will get back to normal soon! This is a jasmine based fragrance which again, is one of my favourite notes when it comes to scents and combined with patchouli, it’s the ideal evening scent for me. It’s warm, woody and musky, but isn’t overpowering. This also comes in a gift set for the same price as the perfume with the matching candle. Nuxe just get me when it comes to scents and I can’t pick a favourite of these five. Each provide me with different feelings, different memories and long may they continue to do so! What’s your favourite Nuxe fragrance?
