Emily Makes Boutique Valentine's Collection

Disclosure - I am a brand rep for Emily Makes Boutique and receive a monthly parcel containing samples for me to review on my Instagram, I receive no payment for the reviews and I am not asked not writes blog posts. Given that I've featured the brand before with products I bought with my own money, I figured some of you might be interested in hearing about the new collection. All samples featured in this post were sent to me as part of the brand rep deal. 

After featuring some of the Christmas collection scents from EMB back in December I thought some of you would be interested to see the Valentine's collection. These reviews are pretty much what I said on Instagram but I'm aware that many people who come across my blog don't follow me on there. EMB brand reps are always encouraged to give an honest review and just because I don't like something doesn't mean to say someone else won't love it, we all love different scents! That's why I've included the scent notes here as it gives a much better idea of the fragrance. If you'd like to make an order on EMB then you can pop my code 'laureny.c' in the notes to seller at checkout and you'll receive a freebie with your order.

Porn Star Martini
A fresh blend of passion fruit and lime with vanilla and a hit of champagne.
Although I don't usually go for fruity scents (I prefer homely warming scents or something clean and relaxing) I was excited for this one, who doesn't love cocktails. The colours in this are amazing and that purple glitter is great! Unfortunately this scent just wasn't for me, it was just too fruity for my liking. But I know this would be perfect for people who prefer this type of scent!

Afternoon Tea
Scones, clotted cream and sweet raspberry jam.
This was probably the cutest sample I've received, those little hearts and stars that appear after melting are perfect for Valentine's Day. This was a super sweet smell that reminded me so much of Drumstick Lollies, not that that's a bad thing. I really enjoyed this one and it definitely seemed the most Valentine's appropriate one from the collection.

Silver Mountain
Aftershave inspired with bergamot, mandarin, neroli, green tea and a base of musk and sandalwood.
Another fun and pretty one, check out the detail when this burns! This wasn't what I was expecting from an aftershave inspired scent at all. I love musk and sandalwood scents but unfortunately I just didn't pick up on this, it was quite sweet smell and whilst I did like it, I would have preferred it to smell a bit more musky and manly. Not at all a bad one, just not what I was expecting! I have been informed that the aftershave it's based on is not what you'd expect from an aftershave either. 

Zen Moment
Aloe, lemon and cucumber on top of lily and jasmine.
I love everything about this one, from the colour and glitter to the amazing scent. If my whole house could smell like this permanently I'd love it. It's such a fresh and calming scent that's meant to remind you of the spa. This is a great choice for a scent in a bathroom when you're having a super relaxing bath or for when you're having a chilled day indulging in some self care. This is definitely my favourite scent from the collection.

Let me know if you like the sound of any of these scents and don't forget, if you make an order pop my code 'laureny.c' in the notes to seller at checkout and you'll receive a freebie with your order.
