You don’t have to look very far to see that I’m obsessed with anything sugary sweet and pastel. Let’s be honest, I dress like I’ve just been thrown up on by a packet of dolly mix. But it doesn’t stop there. I’ve been on a mission to smell like Parma Violets, the undeniable queens of edible pastel things. And to my delight, I think I might just have found the answer: the Patisserie De Bain ‘Sugared Violet’ collection!
Created by British company Rose & Co Apothecary, this sweet and nostalgic range brings a touch of retro fun to the bath & body world. I squealed with delight when these goodies landed on my desk last week. Just look at that packaging! Now, I’m not usually one for super frilly vintage-style designs, but even I think these bottles are gorgeous. I love it when a product is pretty enough to display, and this beautiful collection certainly ticks that box.
The set includes hand cream, body lotion, and shower gel, all of which are perfumed with the same Sugared Violet scent. Sweet without being sickly and strong but not overpowering, this is exactly the fragrance I’ve been searching for! I have a number of violet-based Lush products (namely Daddio Shampoo & Conditioner and Kerbside Violet perfume) which I also love, but they are a little more sophisticated, and sometimes I just want to smell like a sweet shop, you know?!
I love hand creams that not only soften and protect my hands, but that leave behind a pretty fragrance too. The Patisserie De Bain Sugared Violet hand cream does just that, making it the perfect replacement for the Zoella Beauty ‘Wonder Hand’ I keep on my desk. I’m usually rubbish at moisturising after a shower or bath, but the irresistible combination of Sugared Violet bath & shower creme and body lotion might just change me for life!
The Patisserie De Bain ‘Sugared Violet’ collection is available from Superdrug from as little as £3.99. Not a Parma Violet fan? Blasphemy! I’m kidding. I just thought I’d mention that the range includes other mouthwatering scents like Lemon Bon Bon, Creme Patissiere and Cherry Pie. These products were provided free of charge (thank you!), but I will definitely be ordering more when I run out!
Have you tried any of the Patisserie De Bain range? Which of the scents is your favourite?
