New Paisley & Graffiti Batistes

11:30


Introducing two new amazing fragrances from the Batiste range. I've mentioned my love for Batiste before, it's a saviour for my hair, as I need to wash and style it everyday, which makes the ends awful, but thanks to Batiste I can do it every other day! When I heard the news about the two new bottles I just had to try them, and seriously, how bright and amazing are the bottles?

In general, I really don't like graffiti, and street art, I don't know why, but I just don't. As a design student I always get pigeon holed into being a really arty person and constantly have people saying "you do art, do you understand the meaning behind this *enter strange exhibition thing found on campus*" - err no, I don't do art, and no I don't understand the meaning! I'm not saying I don't like any art, I do, I'm not an ignorant person, but I think graphic design in general is design with reason, not just for personal enjoyment. Rant over.

Having the above rant, Batiste Graffiti wouldn't of been my first choice if I was picking up a bottle in a shop, however after reading the press release, I just had to try it. Batiste describe it as "a light and punchy new fragrance with fruity top notes of Apple, Wild Berry, Grape & Citrus, middle notes of Jasmine, Lily & Iris and a base of Musk, Coconut, Sandalwood and Cedar" - how amazing does that sound? I can really get the Sandalwood and Cedar notes, it's quite a deep fragrance, but once it settles it's super fruity too. I'd say this is one of my favourite fragrances to far.

In a shop, Paisley Batiste is something I would be drawn to, I love the design and colour of the bottle. Batiste describe it as "a light and punchy new fragrance with fruity top notes of Grapefruit, Lime & Cassis, middle notes of Jasmine, Rose, Apple, Raspberry & Patchouli and a base of Musk, Vanilla and Caramel". I think this version is really sweet, and almost like a perfume, a complete opposite to the Graffiti version. The sweetness that I could pick up on were the vanilla and caramel scents, but the jasmine and rose were just as strong. Despite being so different to the Graffiti one, I'd have to say this is another of my favourite Batistes, and it would just depend on how I was feeling that day.

There's also a new Red version for all you beautiful red heads! Have you tried any of the new Batistes? Will you be picking any up?

  4. These look so cool! I usually use the one for blondes though I'm not sure how much difference the 'blonde' (more like yellow) tone makes so maybe I'll try one of these to compare :) xx

  10. I would definitely reach for the graffiti bottle but after reading your review, I think the paisley is more my thing! I must test them out next time I'm near Superdrug.
