I loved everything about the packaging and presentation of both these fragrances, Prada Candy and Valentino Valentina when they launched last year; now they’ve both brought out body and shower products to compliment the range. Call me shallow, but I really like things to look pretty in my bathroom (stuff like dry heel balm is always consigned to the cupboard and not on display!) and even if it isn’t entirely representative of daily life (like, I don’t think I have a single Prada item in my wardrobe), it’s just rather nice to pretend to live on the luxy side in the shower, at least. I know that all the brands like to suggest that using all the products, shower, lotion and then fragrance is a cool way to layer, but in reality it can all get a bit much. But in my view, there is nothing wrong with getting between the sheets with a bit of Prada on your skin!
Prada Shower is £28, Body Lotion, £30, and Valentina is the same price.
