The Weekend Roundup 1

Phew… it’s been a busy few weeks at Escentual HQ. With so much exciting stuff going on, I thought it would be the perfect time to introduce our inaugural weekend round-up: a bite-sized chunk of all of the new and noteworthy things that you may have missed during the week. I’ll be filling you in on everything from favourite products and trending beauty news, to the latest offers and upcoming launches. Enjoy!

 

Great Skin for Less
We’re now well into our up to 1/3rd off French Pharmacy promotion, and more of you than ever before are indulging in dermo-cosmetics from across the Channel. (We know, it’s hard to resist the glowing reviews… or the glowing skin of those writing them, for that matter.) Check out our edit of must-buy ‘Cult’ French Pharmacy  here, and What’s New In French Pharmacy here, to get up to speed on the latest and greatest French fancies.

#SpringScents
There’ve been some really exciting new launches in the world of fragrance as the lighter spring/summer scent revolution builds momentum. Among the pastel colour palette of scents, we’ve welcomed in some fun-filled Delights from Marc Jacobs (Marc Jacobs Daisy Delight and Eau so Fresh Delight), a sensuous cherry blossom perfume (Calvin Klein Endless Euphoria), a sleek, sartorial almond-and-orange-blossom blend (Elie Saab Le Parfum L’Eau Couture), a luminous new take on Alien (Thierry Mugler Alien Eau Extraordinaire), and a sophisticated entry into the infectiously joyful Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire fragrance anthology (Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire Couture). If you’re in the market for a new fragrance, you’re really being spoilt for choice at the moment.

Fragrance Competition Extravaganza
But before you check out those new scents, you may like to try your hand at our latest fragrance competitions. We’re offering three lucky people the chance to win the entire Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire trilogy right here – it ends tomorrow, Sunday 16th March. And for the guys, there’s the chance to win one of six Valentino Uomo 50ml Eau de Toilettes here, ending on Sunday 23rd March. Good luck!

Awards Season
And I’ve saved the best news for last. Our very own fragrance expert, Thomas, has won one of the most coveted prizes in fragrance journalism this week: a Jasmine Award! Read his winning review here. Huge, big congratulations from everyone at Team Escentual!

Until next week,
Emma x
