About a week ago I was kindly sent a package from Charlotte Rhys which contained a couple of products: their Hand and Body Lotion and one of their Eau de Toilettes. 

Charlotte Rhys is a premium fragrance brand that originated in South Africa and has just launched in the UK this summer. It is developed to be "Kind to you and kind to nature" with vegan friendly and cruelty free products created with sustainable practices such as biodegradable packaging. 

The products I received are the Oud Blanche Eau de Toilette and No. 17 Hand and Body Lotion. My first impressions on both products were very positive as the packaging looks very luxurious with the sleek monochrome design with silver accents.

The Oud Blanche Eau de Toilette comes in a 100 ml opaque glass bottle. The Oud Blanche fragrance is described as "Enigmatic and Seductive", the top notes consist of Saffron, Rose, Bergamot and Cistus Labdanum, with a heart of Cedarwood, Patchouli, Gaiac and Apple. Vanilla, Sandalwood, Labdanum and Musk create its base notes.

Oud Blanche is a very strong fragrance so it is not for the faint-hearted. I can definitely perceive the woody and fruit notes, as well as a warm vanilla base. I would describe this perfume as a grown up version of Guerlain's La Petite Robe Noire, perhaps. It has great staying power, however the strong notes seem a bit heavy for summer but I think it would make a great A/W fragrance.

The Hand & Body Lotion comes in a 300 ml white plastic bottle with an elegant, slim black pump. The No 17 fragrance is referred to as "Fresh with Woody Depth", it features top notes of Yuzu, Bergamot, Lemon and Tarragon, with Lily of the Valley, Nutmeg, Water Lily and Reseda as the heart. Cedar wood, Sandalwood, Vetiver and Musk create the base notes.

The lotion is very lightweight but nourishing thanks to the Glycerin, Coconut Oil and Baobab Seed Oil in the formula. The No 17 Hand & Body Lotion is fresher than the Oud Blanche, with a light but complex citrus fragrance that is very long lasting and is perceptible on the hands even after washing them.
