09 Dec L'Oreal Professionnel Mythic Oil Le Parfum
Mythic Oil is L’Oreal Professionnel’s number one best-selling product worldwide, with a bottle sold approximately every 17 seconds. According to the brand, not only do you love the versatility and lightweight formula of Mythic Oil, but you also love the scent, something that this brand always nails – most of their hair products smell good enough to eat.
It’s no surprise then (although one wonders why it took so long?) that they’ve recently introduced their first hair and body fragrance. And what a fragrance – Mythic Oil Le Parfum (£19, 75ml) is so beautiful, you just want to douse yourself in it from head to toe!
Two of my favourite perfume ingredients are jasmine and vanilla and I have learnt that I am naturally attracted to woody florals, so on paper this is my dream fragrance. In my mind, the composition is bang on the money: fresh floral top notes, white floral middle notes and a creamy and woody drydown featuring caramel, vanilla and tonka beans.
The result is a rich, sensual and sophisticated scent which in my opinion is best kept for night – if you need a reference or two, think Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, Chanel Allure or Flowerbomb by Viktor&Rolf. Yes it’s sweet, but it’s not sickly, as the floral notes keep things fresh.
Not only does it smell gorgeous, but the formula also includes shine-inducing argan and safflower oils which dull hair will love. You can use it in-between washes to refresh your hair or to intensify the Mythic scent after your blow-dry.
