ARRAN Sense of Scotland
was created in 1989 by husband and wife, Janet and Iain Russell. They started production from their home on Scotland's isle of Arran. Formerly known as Arran Aromatics, the range features gorgeous bath, body and home fragrance products.
Inspiration for their product ideas is drawn from the land and seacape - after all, it is one of the world's most beautiful places and a part of the country which I totally love. I also love perfume. Whether it comes in the guise of a shower gel, body lotion, soap, hand cream, home fragrance or scent that I can lavishly scoosh on myself, I can honestly say it makes me feel better. After all, isn't it true that scents tap into something in the subconscious ?
During World War 11, some soldiers took handkerchiefs scented with their loved one’s perfume abroad with them. It helped them feel closer during the terrible and often searingly lonely times. So you see, it's things like this that help us understand the power which perfumes have on our mental well-being.
One of the most popular scents from ARRAN Sense of Scotland is the After the Rain collection and that's the one I'm using. It has a big personality. Best described as fresh and floral, this is a fabulous blend of lime, rose and earthy sandalwood. It's light enough for daily wear, making the wearer feel reawakened and ready to tackle the day ahead but also subtle and seductive enough to wear on a glam night out. How clever is that?

ARRAN Sense of Scotland shares the public’s concern that animals should not be used to test cosmetics and toiletries. None of their products have been tested on animals, nor have they ever commissioned suppliers or any other company to carry out animal testing on their behalf.
I received a bottle of After the Rain eau de toilette free for the purpose of this review. However, this does not sway my judgement, I give honest opinions.
