Roger & Gallet Rose Imaginaire Fragrant Water Spray & Rose Soap



Rose Imaginaire Fragrant Water Spray

Inspired by the wonders of nature, Rose Imaginaire is an Eau Fraiche with a sensual and refreshing fragrance. Transporting you to three exquisite gardens around the world – the sources of rare and precious essences, enchanting you on a sensorial journey… A garden in Sicily for the delicate fruity freshness of the rosebud, a garden in Egypt to capture the sumptuous softness of the rose petal, a garden in Oceania to reveal the bewitching rose and its timeless elegance.

Head Notes: Strawberry and Mandarin Orange
Heart Notes: Jasmine and Violet
Base Notes: Sandalwood and Patchouli
All ingredients

Rose Imaginaire has a wonderful scent, perfect for spring. It is rich, but not heavy. Charming and seductive at the same time. Lingers 2 – 3 hours on the skin and then evaporates. However, does not disappear completely; a slight scent retains for a few more hours.

Price: £32.00 for 100ml (not available in the USA)


Rose Soap

Roger & Gallet soaps are produced by a unique manufacturing process. They owe their incomparable fragrance to an artisan tradition and their infinite softness to the quality of their composition, which preserves all the vital functions of the skin.

From  the dream of an Indian garden was born Rose Gentle Fragrant Water… As caressing as the silk saris of Bengal, as  limpid as the fountains reflecting the palaces of the sultans, allow the magic of this bewitching bouquet pervade you with its delicious, secret sensuality.

Head Notes: Rose and Mandarin Orange
Heart Notes: Peony and Rosebud
Base Notes: Amber and Almond Milk

The Rose soap is superb. Its intense odor spreads all over the room even when it is packed. When on skin, the scent is not intense and does not linger on it. The soap does not dry out the skin. It comes in a convenient travel box.

Price: £6.00 for 100 g  |  $13.00 for 3.5 oz.

Ammara prirodna kozmetika is a natural, handmade cosmetic brand. When the founder asked me what products I would like to review, I suggested that it would be the best that they send me their topgallant products. So I received a tangerine lip balm and a lavender soap.

Ammara prirodna kozmetika


Lavender Soap

It has a beautiful rose shape and it is nicely packaged. When used, the scent of lavender is not intense and does not stay on the skin. Soap is very mild and does not dry out the skin, but it is effective at the same time. Can be used for hand or body washing. 3.53 oz/100 g of product costs approx. $3.51/£2.16.

Ingredients: olive oil, palm oil, NaOH, beeswax, lavender essential oil and lavender flower.


Tangerine Lip Balm

The balm is housed in a box with a thread. It’s dense, nutritious, tasty… It does a good job in healing the lips. It has beautifully tangerine scent, which is not intense and disappears quickly, so I often reach out for a new dose. :) Fortunately, 0.35 oz./10 g is a significant amount, and the price is low – approx. $2.63/£1.62.

Ingredients: coconut oil, palm oil, beeswax, honey and essential oil of tangerine.

L'Occitane - Verbena collection


All four products have a nice, refreshing scent of verbena. They are very gentle and suitable for daily use and for all types of skin and hair.

Shower gel does not dry out the skin, and the same goes for the soap. This creamy soap looks beautiful – it looks like a leaf and it contains crushed verbena leaves which provide gentle exfoliation. The shampoo is very mild, so it’s suitable for everyday use. It’s enriched with organic verbena extract and lemon essential oil. Body lotion has a pleasant scent; it provides solid moisture and does not irritate the skin. It’s enriched with organic extract of verbena, grape seed oil and vitamins F and E.

All products are very gentle; they do not irritate the skin and scalp, so I recommend them to the sensitive skin.

I used sample sized products. Here are the prices of the regular sized ones:

  • Verbena Shower Gel – $20.00 (8.4 fl. oz)
  • Verbena Body Lotion – $24.00 (8.4 fl. oz)
  • Citrus Verbena Daily Use Shampoo – $18.00 (8.4 fl. oz)
  • Soap with Verbena Leaves  -$6.00 (2.6 oz)
