On Monday, I booked the day off work and headed to London, after receiving an invite to the Roger & Gallet blogger evening.
I met up with my friend and fellow blogger, Gemma, then went to another event before the Roger & Gallet event. You can read about that here.
Just a short walk further, we reached St Martin's Lane Hotel, the venue for the Roger & Gallet event.
Admittedly, Roger & Gallet is not a brand that I really knew of, or have tried prior to the event, however, I am now left wondering, HOW?! WHY?! WHAT?!
On entering the gorgeous smelling venue, we were welcomed by the lovely Steph Marston, offered Champagne, then taken for a little tour of the products.
The set up was unbelievably beautiful! Everything about it, fresh, floral, feminine, with wooden shelves, real oranges, Alice in Wonderland style 'smell me...' etc messages and tags, with glass jars filled with products and, best of all...
A LIVING WALL!
Words can not describe how stunning this really was. Another one of the PR ladies, Julia Ward explained to us how it was real and had been installed, then continually watered.
Originally, I fell in love with the Rose products but then we were given a super-exclusive look at the brand new fragrance, Rose Imaginaire...this is exciting enough in itself but wow, this product smells so good!
We were handed beautiful goody bags on our way out. Gemma and I were going to save opening them but whilst we were sat outside the bar in Leicester Square, Gemma peeked in her bag and spotted...ROSE IMAGINAIRE!! OMGosh, we were so happy, literally sat there, in Leicester Square, all happy and excited like it was Christmas! I then spotted Creme Sublime in my bag, which was another stand-out product at the event. There are 2 other products in the goody bag, which is amazing. Thank you so much Roger & Gallet! I'm going to be wearing Rose Imaginaire so much now, it is a lovely fragrance.
Thank you to the lovely people at Roger & Gallet and to Steph Marston for the invite and for showing us around.
After the event, Gemma and I headed to Kink bar in Leicester Square for cocktails. Good times :) Amaretto Sour and Crazy Jamaican - yum!
I then had to RUN and jump on and off tubes to catch my 9:43pm train home! Taking my flatforms off whilst on an escalator, running frantically, showing the lady my tube ticket not train ticket, then hearing the whistle blow as I approached the train! I actually JUMPED on the train, through the nearest door, which turned out to be First Class...walking through First Class with shoes in hand - classy! I eventually got home at 1:15am, after what was a long, tiring but brilliant afternoon and evening in London. It was great to meet some lovely people and also catch up with Gemma :)
