The Sun is shining, the skies are blue and what better way to enjoy the Summer than with some beautiful boutique fragrances! I am so happy that I get to share the Shay and Blue QVC TSV (Todays Special Value) with you. Having been wearing this brand since 2015, I am excited to share some of my favourites with you.
Fragrance is such a mood enhancer…for me it can take me back to some very happy memories, can build the mood for romance, can evoke memories of Summer and really take you back to a certain time and place. Shay and Blue are experts in creating Boutique Fragrances that enchant the senses….

This is evident in each and every fragrance.
Included in this incredible Shay and Blue QVC TSV – 4 Piece Portable Fragrance Collection are the following fragrances:
Scarlet Lily 10ml –
Big Blooms of Scarlet Ariadne lily, a scandalously heady bouquet and undertones of ylang ylang give this fragrance intrigue.
Wow! How is this the first time I have ever tried Scarlet Lily! I am absolutely blown away by this fragrance. It is stunning! This truly is a sexy yet classy floral, but not a floral in the traditional way. This is a modern day breakthrough in florals! It is so unique, so classy, so seductive…it is the fragrance that once smelt by the “object of your desire” you will never be forgotten hahahaha! This beauty is a new favourite and has so many layers that transpire as you wear it. This has those fresh, bright almost ozone-y top notes, with the seductively modern Scarlett Ariadne Lily and Ylang Ylang middle notes and the base note of Amber which adds the intrigue and adds a roundness with a hit of musk. This is kickass, its modern , its sexy, it means business….
Top Note – Lotus blossom will freshen and brighten the floral bouquet
Heart Note – Scarlet ariadne lily and ylang ylang add a modern edge
Base Note – Amber creates a warm gentle finish
Black Tulip 10ml
Launched in 2018 this fragrance fast became one of my all time Shay & Blue favourites. A stunning blend of Snowdrops, Cyclamen, Rich Black Tulip, Juicy Plum and White Chocolate, make this the most exquisite floral blend I think I have ever smelt. This is a well rounded fragrance that is not overtly sweet, not cloying but full bodied and juicy, like a beautiful bottle of wine. I can almost taste the white chocolate notes that linger and round this scent off. Believe you me I am a huge fragrance junkie with more perfumes in my house than I care to admit to and I have not smelt anything as smooth and luscious as this. I just want to envelop my house and my body in this decedent scent, it is truly incredible.
This quickly became my signature scent , so much so that my friend who always commented on how amazing I smelt when I wore this, received the full size as a gift from me for her 40th Birthday in Lockdown. She is as thrilled and in love with it as I am.
This Oriental fragrance is sensual, warming and just beautiful. It lingers on my clothes in a warming way, and, although an Oriental fragrance there is something quintessentially English about the deep, Plummy notes that i adore. My signature scent, this is the little black dress of fragrance that wears beautifully on the skin….
Top Note – Snowdrops and cyclamen.
Heart Note – Black tulip and plum.
Base Note – White chocolate and soft woods for a smooth finish.
Blood Orange 10ml
This fragrance is so uplifting, happy, positive and bright I absolutely love it! Created with real Citrus, Flowers, Fruit and Spices this is a cult classic fragrance loved by both men and women. A trendy, complex fragrance that will serve the test of time, you will absolutely be stopped and asked about this glorious beauty. Blood Orange is a softer fragrance that has been expertly blended with Amber, Musk, Leather and Chard woods making this an effervescent, exciting fragrance. This will lift your mood and put a smile on your face each and every time you wear it. Fresh, Fruity and Flirty this is a must have for the person that always has a spring in their step or has a really busy life and needs to feel uplifted and energised.
I love this fragrance when I know I have a busy day ahead and need a burst of energy. I also love to spritz this in my hair on a Sunday morning when i am having a jeans and T shirt kind of day and love the gentle burst of fragrance that it offers. If Citrus Fragrances are for you, but you want to step away from the Lemon and Lime fragrances, I can wholeheartedly assure you, Blood Oranges is your new best friend.
Happiness and Joy in a bottle. This is, for me, a great weekend fragrance, or if you are someone that loves to share your fragrance with your man, this is the one!
Top Note – Fresh bursts of juicy blood orange
Heart Note – Balanced notes of sensual hot Napa leather
Base Note – Sultry musk, charred woods and amber
Blackberry Woods 10ml
A recent launch from Shay and Blue this exquisitely Gender Neutral, fresh woody, fruity fragrance is effervescent, uplifting and full of the promise of positivity. This is enchantingly sexy as it warms on the body and bursts into life with the hit of fresh Blackberry and Lemon leaves warming down to that beautiful woody Cypress. Imagine a walk through the woods on a warm day, stopping to pick those over ripe Blackberries that burst in your fingers and seep that delicate juice and fragrance…..this is artisan perfumery at its finest.
Top Note – Crunchy blackberry for a mouth watering opening
Heart Note – Neroli and lemon leaves for character in the heart
Base Note – Softening cypress woods create a warming base
