Win fragrant fabulousness from Yardley London


Pamper post-summer bodies with Yardley London’s new Moisturising Fragrance Body Mists – seven gorgeous prizes to give away, each set worth £50... The first scent we ever loved as little things was Yardley London’s Original English Lavender. In fact, we rather suspect that this iconic brand is woven into our national DNA.

The story of Yardley London actually started in 1620 when young William Yardley acquired the right to make and sell lavender soaps for the City of London. That concession came from King Charles 1st and Yardley’s royal connections resurfaced again three and a half centuries later when the brand was awarded three royal warrants, one of them as Perfumers to HM Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother.

After dabbling in cosmetics in the Sixties – Twiggy and Jean Shrimpton were the Faces of Yardley London in those heady days – the brand returned to its heritage this century, launching a range of eaux de toilette for men and women. (Fascinating fact: Yardley London English Lavender was the chosen EDT for macho Brazilian men, so Sarah was told when she was writing for Esquire in the 1990s.)

Now Yardley London has launched seven new Moisturising Fragrance mists, as part of their recently launched, gorgeously scented ‘beauty essentials’ range, all with a contemporary twist. The sparkling fresh floral scents are supported by skin-cherishing vitamin E and sweet almond oil. The key ingredients are, they tell us, 97% naturally derived and the quick drying, non-staining mist will keep your skin fragrant for hours.
