Hello there, fellow fragrance fanatics and literature lovers… We’re back (sort of)!
So whilst we haven’t posted any new reviews in over three months(!), our university workload is slowly starting to ease off a little and we should be writing very soon!

We were going to make this into three larger and more detailed posts, but as our uni schedules don’t give us much spare time we’d rather spend our free hours writing reviews and posts for you than waffling on about what’s going to be on P&P in 2014. So starting with books, here’s a sneak peek of what to expect from us this year! Continue reading
It’s been a wonderful year for Pages and Perfume. The highlight of 2013 was undoubtedly being given the amazing opportunity to write for ODOU magazine!

Blooms of warmth nestled amongst enchanting greenery.
One of four perfumes from Friedemodin’s debut Jardin Mystique collection, Jardin Mystique is a green floral fragrance that aims to conjure up the sensory experience of a wild enchanted garden. A sparkling fruit note is what greeted me when I first smelled it. Like crushed blackcurrants, it’s mouth-wateringly juicy and fresh, with just a touch of woodiness. Quickly however, this juicy cassis note is fused with a slight bitterness from citrusy bergamot and an herbaceous touch of freshly cut grass. Continue reading

A wonderful winter skin pick-me-up!
Exfoliating is essential during the autumn and winter months as the colder temperatures lead to skin that looks dull and feels dry.

Inspired by a good old-fashioned British holiday, What I Did On My Holidays evokes childhood memories of ice creams on the beach, strolls along the sea front and the flashing lights of the amusement arcades.
