I’ve previously blogged about the BSQ Natural Couture range and their ethos here. I really enjoyed the White Amber fragrance I was sent to review and I was delighted when Bergamot Noir arrived at my door.

This time round Berkeley Square have collaborated with the RNIB (Royal National Institute of Blind People) to create a perfume inspired by the Golden Age of Couture. Bergamot & Neroli on a base of amber and wood. Another gorgeous bottle, this time black glass. It’s really lovely and well priced at £25 for 30ml of Eau de Parfum.

For the Launch of Bergamot Noir the RNIB and BSQ have created the Scents and Sensibility to celebrate the work of blind and partially sighted artists. The fragrance was bought to life by six artists working across the mediums of painting, sculpture, installation art and photography to form a one off exhibition and artworks for auction. The virtual version of this auction goes live this month on www.bsquare.co.uk and www.rnib.co.uk as well as the online auction of the artwork at www.givinglots.co.uk to raise funds for the RNIB.

This is a beautiful fragrance, very womanly and a little bit daring. Well worth checking out and stocked in www.houseoffraser.co.uk.

The BSQ. Natural Couture Fragrance Collection

Now this is lovely. Lovely products, a lovely idea and beautiful scents. A collaboration of art and fragrance.

The collection was inspired by the elegant photographic collection by John French (1906-1966). John French was a top fashion photographer during the sixties and after his death his archive was presented to the Victoria and Albert Museum, London.

The Bsq. Natural Couture collection is a range of fragrances and body care products produced in collaboration with the V&A. No minerals oils, no SLES, no artificial colours, no synthetic ethanol perfume bases…

I tried out the White Amber range which is a warming fragrance with amber and sandalwood essential oils, with additional notes of vanilla, mandarin, jasmine, violet, ylang ylang amongst others. The other three fragrances in the range are White Bergamot and White Muguet, all of which sound lovely and for each fragrance there are three products, an Eau de Toilette, Shower Cream, Body Lotion and a Hand and Nail Cream.

White Amber is a beautiful fragrance and I’ve worn it most days since I received it, it’s wonderful layering with the body lotion and the hand cream.
The perfume lasts well on me and isn’t too pungent but still strong, the body lotion is very light and none greasy, it wouldnt’ be enough for me in the winter but during the summer months it’s great, and the hand cream is quickly absorbed and moisturising. I like using it before I get into bed so my hands scent the area, it feels a bit decadent 🙂
