The new The Body Shop ABSINTHE handcare range! God, damn it, I want to fucking try these so bad… *_*

→ “historically described as a distilled, highly alcoholic beverage. It is an anise-flavoured spirit derived from botanicals, including the flowers and leaves of Artemisia absinthium (a.k.a. “grand wormwood”), together with green anise, sweet fennel, and other medicinal and culinary herbs. Absinthe traditionally has a natural green colour but may also be colourless. It is commonly referred to in historical literature as “la fée verte” (the green fairy).”

Daisy Green Magazine:

The Body Shop has just launched a new perfume called Love etc.

Katy Mason, The Body Shop’s senior category and innovations manager, said the inspiration behind the perfume was Anita Roddick, founder of the chain, who was filled with passion, drive and love.

“We wanted to create a perfume that resonated with 20-30 year-old women and captures their sense of emotional connection, the importance of their friends and their love of love and romance. Love etc is about being young, inspired and the wider power of love for friends, family and lovers,” says Katy.

The perfume was created by top Parisian perfumier, Dominique Ropion and has warm base notes of vanilla and musk, mid notes created by jasmine, the blossom hand-picked at sun rise by women in the Nile Deta and zingy top notes of bergamot, pear and neroli.

What is unique is that it’s the first perfume to use community-traded alcohol. The alcohol is distilled from organic sugar cane grown in Ecuador that’s cut by hand. The land is so unpolluted, apparently, that orchids grow amongst the cane.

Got this perfume as a gift from my grandma. It smells mildly sweet & light though, and the bottle & the packaging looks pretty simple but attractive. Here are the fragrance notes.
