I discovered Shay and Blue Fragrance quite by accident back in March 2015 in The Perfume Society Fragrance box. The Scent was Framboise Noire, a sensual, woody, berry fragrance, unlike anything I had tried before and I was well and truly hooked.
Every.Single.Time I wear this fragrance I get so many compliments! It is so unbelievably beautiful and intoxicating and seems to warm and wear so incredibly well on my skin it is as if it was made for me. Until that moment I will admit I had not heard of Shay and Blue, but now….well….lets just say I may have a slight addiction.
|Shay and Blue|
Shay and Blue are an award wining boutique perfumery based in Marylebone. Established in 2012, do not let the age of the brand reflect from the wealth of knowledge and expertise behind each and every blend, ingredient and product. Created by Dom De Vetta who has over 20 years in the fragrance industry including as a former Senior Vice President at Chanel, and Global General Manager of Jo Malone London, including the “Nose” of Shay and Blue – Julie Massé, this powerful coupling are bringing us modern and unique scents whilst maintaining craftsmanship and Quality. With their hand harvested and hand weighed ingredient’s of real flowers, real spices and real fruits which are left to stand and infuse for 3 months, hand distilled and hand filled into beautiful blue glass, you are not only receiving an amazing fragrance but also an authentic, true experience from masters of the craft with a genuine love and respect for what they do. This is evident in each and every fragrance. This brand is an absolute force to be reckoned with, a power house in the fragrance industry and one that I am thrilled to have discovered.
Today I am sharing with you a couple of Christmas Limited Edition items that I know you will love as much as me, and hopefully be able to get your hands on before they disappear.
|Shay and Blue Precious Minitures Limited Edition Collection|
This collection is absolutely gorgeous! Firstly the packaging, the signature Shay and Blue box with the striped grosgrain ribbon makes this gift not only smell amazing but look exquisite too. Inside the box are 5 incredible best selling 10ml perfume blends that enable you to have a real taster of this brand.

• Atropa Belladonna – mesmerising cassis berries, jasmine and patchouli. Intoxicating.• Blood Oranges – juicy blood oranges, leather, musk and charred woods. Fresh and zesty.• Salt Caramel – tempting liquid caramel, sea salt and sandalwood. Warming and comforting.• Watermelons – explosively fresh watermelon, green mandarin, green tea and vetiver. Alive, vibrant and effervescent.• Framboise Noire – elegant black raspberry, forest berries and black woods, sexy and sensual.
These fragrances, pack a punch and really get you noticed for all the right reasons, they are fresh, and effervescent where needed, or warm and comforting but never cloying or synthetic at all. They are incredibly addictive and these sizes are perfect for handbags and for travelling as you only need to use a small amount to really get a huge hit of fragrance, they last a long time. With a mixture of Unisex scents ( The Blood Orange being particularly lovely and fresh on a man and the Salty Caramel being incredibly warming and comforting) this really is a beautiful collection to give someone that appreciates the wonderful things in life.
|Shay and Blue Pine d’Antibes Candle|
I am the first person to say how much I dislike a pine candle and when this arrived (beautifully packaged may I add) I was so worried. However, I need not have been. This is in a different league. I left the lid to this beautiful candle off for 3 days before I lit it to see the intensity of fragrance and each and every day my room smelt fresh and clean and crisp and like a brisk winters walk through a pine forest, this is absolutely beautiful. I can completely understand how it won “The Ultimate Candle – Glamour Magazines 2014 Beauty Power List”. Handcrafted using 100% natural waxes this candle has a 40 hour burn time with scent in every last minute. Suitable for both men and women this would make a gorgeous gift. The weight in the glass is beautiful and definitely something to keep after the candle has burned.

Top Note – The unmistakeable scent of silver fir and pine cone.
Heart Note – A pretty burst of Winter snowdrops and white pepper as the perfect backdrop to the chic woods.
Base Note – A gently smoky-soft base of vetiver and beeswax for depth.
This is unmistakably Christmas in a jar, and one that people will remember you for each and every time they step into your home. I love the brightness that I get a hit of at first, followed by a warming smokiness. I am just hoping that one day they create a candle in my favourite Framboise Noir Scent.
I really hope you get to try this brand, especially the collections above. Shay and Blue are available online here, and also in Harvey Nichols, John Lewis and Qvcuk.
