If you could capture sunshine in a bottle, then Estée Lauder’s Bronze Goddess Capri would be the result. The newest of Lauder’s Bronze Goddess collection, aptly named after the beautiful Italian isle, will brighten up any gloomy day that our British climate throws at us. With top notes of cassis, mandarin and lemon leaves, middle notes of jasmine and peony, and base notes of vanilla, patchouli and musk, it simply is paradise in one spray.


Estée Lauder isn’t usually the first brand I would go to for a new fragrance, as I often stick to perfumes attached to labels such as Armani, Dior and Gucci, but there was something especially alluring about Capri. Whether it was the gorgeous bronzed model, or stunning two-tone bottle, which I believe imitates the sand and sea of the beach, I was hooked. The exotic scent also sparked memories of summers gone by, with hints of salt, coconut and even suncream tingling at my senses. Plus, the fragrance is limited edition so I just HAD to pick one up before it was too late. Since reading the excellent reviews of other Estée Lauder fragrances since my purchase, I will probably be investing in a lot more of their products in the future as well.

The rest of the Capri collection includes a shimmering make-up palette of gold, brown, turquoise and white, two eye crayons, an illuminating powder, lip gloss, nail lacquer and obviously a liquid bronzer. So, if the skinscent doesn’t quite grab your fancy, then I am sure another piece would add a little taster of Capri to your make-up bag. I am also a big fan of the names used for the entire collection – bronze sands, shimmering sands, white sands and molten lava, which I think conjures up images of the island perfectly.


Bronze Goddess Capri Eau Fraiche/ Skinscent, Pure Colour Gelée Powder Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Sands, Pure Colour Illuminating Powder Gelée in Shimmering Sands, Luminous Liquid Bronzer, Pure Colour Nail Lacquer in Molten Lava, Pure Colour Gloss in Shimmering Mirage and Intense Kajal Eye Crayon Duo in White Sands/ Molten Lava.
