New Batiste on the Block - Floral, Monochrome & Oriental

Regular readers of my blog will no doubt by now, know my love for Batiste dry shampoo; heck, even non-regular readers probably know!

Not only do I love Batiste for their super affordable price tag, and the fact that their product performs miles better than its high-end competitor, but also due to the fact they are an ever expanding family...
this time they've released three BRAND NEW dry shampoo fragrances and I was kindly sent them to review...

Floral, Monochrome, & Oriental

Floral is described as a light delicate fragrance with top notes of blossom, a heart of fruity melon, orange and peach, and a deep floral base of rose, muguet and violet. For me it smells like a delicate citrus/floral perfume, and reminds me somewhat of one of my favourite fragrances; DKNY Be Delicious Fresh Blossom. I love the design of the can with it's Cath Kidston-esque floral print.

Monochrome is describes as a spicy and dynamic fragrance with top notes of orange blossom and pepper, a heart of hyacinth, iris, lilac, wisteria and heliotrope, with a warm base of musk. I find monochrome to be a musky floral scent, and a much heavier scent than floral.

Oriental is described as a warm delicate fragrance with fruity top notes including apple, wild berry, and grape. Floral middle notes of jasmine and iris and a base of rich coconut, sandalwood and cedar. For me oriental is a lovely fruity scent which has the floral scent of jasmine shining through. Thankfully for me my nose doesn't pick up any of the coconut base.
I am also in love with the can design; so much so I actually did an oooooh, when I unwrapped the parcel.

All three varieties come in a 200ml can retailing at £2.99. Oriental is available from a wide range of stockist, whilst Monochrome is exclusive to Boots, and Floral is exclusive to Superdrug.

Have you tried any of the new Batiste fragrances?
Which one catches your eye?
