THERE’S something so special about Shay & Blue.
Established in 2012, they have certainly made an impression on me with their stunning perfumes which use natural ingredients and an artisan approach to perfume making.
In their own words, they say “We take a ’boutique’ point of view. A boutique point of view means personal passion. It means a concern for detail and craftsmanship. It means that we work with our hands. That we work with the chosen few – the skilled craftsmen and artisans of traditional fine fragrance.”
This scent, called Framboise noire, is the second fragrance I’ve tried from the boutique perfumery, the first being Dandelion Fig fragrance, and both are equally as potent with beautiful staying power. I’m totally addicted.
It has top notes of rare black raspberry and mixed forest berries; a heart note of iris pallid; and base notes of white oud and black woods. It’s a really rich and fragrant eau de parfum that always makes me feel special when I spray it on.
To add to the luxury and quality, Shay & Blue is handcrafted in England with real flowers, fruits and spices.
