… from ME!

I came across the Korres-owned line of body products whilst surfing the Zuneta site late the other evening.  I was taking advantage of the free delivery code before it ran out and stumbled over this intriguing range of well-priced, temptingly-flavoured goodies!

I’m a sucker for warm scents and tobacco is one of my favourites.  The For Kings & Queen’s version doesn’t disappoint… it’s sweet without being sickly and intoxicating without being heady.  To my nose, I can detect a hint of juiciness that’s sharp enough to gently cut through the warmer base and keep things a little lighter.  It’s simply a beautiful unisex scent and Mr. L has already made one hell of a dent in our bottle.

The formula is runny and toned brown… so beware any spillages!  Another point to note is just how much lather the formula produces… just a tiny drop combined with a mesh bath puff will create miles of bubbles, ensuring excellent value for money!

The scent sadly doesn’t linger on my skin once I’ve left the bathroom, a real shame as I imagine this would make the most perfect layering foundation for some of my warm, amber-based fragrances.  Still, at £5.00 for 300ml I can’t expect the world and I’m very happy with what I get for my money.

Rather dangerously, there’s a particularly collectible element to the line up.  The For Kings & Queens range link their scents to specific royal persons, hence the “Tsar Peter” in this shower gel who was known to enjoy the flavours of aromatic pipe tobacco so much that during times of severe laws against tobacco smoking he extended this pleasure to his people allowing them to smoke freely. It’s like the pokemon of shower gels… gotta catch ’em all!

I’m fascinated by the Korres-owned range which I believe has been around for some time now (how did I not know!) and already have a few more earmarked for future purchase.

For Kings & Queens are available to buy online from Zuneta & ThePowderRooms (where the range is currently on sale) – also check out the brand’s website which has all the historical tidbits about the various royal references!

Have you tried the Kings & Queens range?  Any favourites?

    I’ve tried their Pepper Bergamot roll on deodorant, which smells divine. I guess it’s unisex. I got it from Powder Rooms.

    Yup, the Chinese Princess ‘Jasmine’ one & the Aztec King ‘Vanilla Pear’ one, I luuuuurveee them deeply <3 The Jasmine one is a staple in my morning shower routine during the summer months, makes my day! And its smell does linger on somewhat longer than the others, I think.

    I’ve tried their Caspar Myrrh and King of Sumatra, Pepper Bergamot shower gel and body milk and also the Pepper and Bergamot showergel. I ended up giving the Caspar Myrrh shower gell to my boyfriend because the smell was very manly, good, but manly. The body milk made me think of christmas and the smell lingered pretty long in my skin. The consistency was thin but moisturizing. The Pepper Bergamot showergell was pretty unisex, it has an oriental feel and is same time spicy and fresh in a way. That one I liked for myself very much. The only dowfall in the shower gels is the cap, it’s pretty flimsy and I managed to brake it at some point.

    I love this range so hard especially the Myrrh and the Lemonflower versions. John Lewis and Waitrose stock them although you’ll find part of the range in JL and part in Waitrose rather than the whole range in both stores.

    I’m loving the bottle, but I know that I would not dig the smell 🙁

  6. I’ve also seen the range on sale occasionally on members only sites like Gilt and Hautelook. It’s not on frequently, but it’s something to keep an eye out for!

    I used to see this line in John Lewis and Waitrose- and they all smell fab!

    Bought this for my OH, but ended up using it myself ‘cos I loved the smell!! Got mine from John Lewis, tempted by the tobacco soap…

  9. Powder Rooms says:

    So glad you liked this! The scent is very delicate and they can be layered with the body butter and body milk in each scent group http://www.powderrooms.com/brands/kings_and_queens/

    We’re hoping they’ll bring out more soon and we also hope to stock Korres too!x

    Hi! I know this might have nothing to do with the product, but I just loved your reference to pokemon! I definitely don’t see many beauty bloggers/vloggers do that! =)
