Who’s keen to win a Revlon Fire & Ice Inferno and Radiance fragrance hamper?

If you thought Revlon’s love affair with Fire & Ice was a 90’s thing, you’d be wrong. It initially started as a lipstick and nail polish collection that launched back in the 50’s (yep, it’s been that long!) and the original oriental fragrance only popped up in ’94. Later, Fire & Ice Cool popped up in ’97 and my little sister and I were craaazy about it.

A fresh and clean-smelling woody-musky-floral, it was seemingly inspired by the big unisex fragrance trend (ckOne anybody?) that was going on at the time. I can clearly remember how it floated around the corridors of my school at a time when clunky boots and Adidas track pants (thanks Sporty Spice!) where the shizzle’s nizzle and tracks like Toni Braxton’s ‘Un-Break My Heart’ and Mark Morrison’s ‘Return of the Mack’ dominated the charts. How is that for a serious flash back?!

Anyway, the now iconic Fire & Ice brand has evolved once to introduce two new eau de toilettes – Inferno and Radiance (R289 for 50ml).

Inferno, the ‘fire’ is the warm, floriental of the two – a mix of orange blossom, jasmine, rose, patchouli, musk and sandalwood. Even though spices, amber and something resinous aren’t officially listed as notes, I can pick these up immediately along with lots of patchouli and musk. It’s the kind of scent that would suit a cold winter’s day or a hot summer night when you’re feeling sexy and want to make a statement. In way, it reminds me a bit of Roberto Cavalli for Women.

As far as Radiance goes, this fresh ‘icy’ scent is all about apple, peach, lemon, jasmine, white musk, amber and cedarwood. The moment I spritzed it on I went ‘OMG, this smells exactly like Dolce & Gabanna’s Light Blue, a very good thing as I’m a big fan of the scent. I’ve actually been wearing it quite a bit since receiving it and have had several friends comment, saying things like ‘Oooh yum, Light Blue! I wear that too!’ Later, a quick google revealed that Radiance and D&G’s bestseller share pretty much 99% of the same notes. (A very nice ‘Yay’ for your pocket now that the Rand has taken a merry nosedive right before Christmas…)

Win! Win! Win!

Now let’s get to the bit I know you’re waiting for – how you can get your mitts on one of two Fire & Ice hampers. Each contains both the Inferno and Radiance EDT as well as the body spray, lotion and roll-on deo of each variant with a total value of around R800 per hamper.

To enter, simply leave a comment below telling me which of the two you’d most like to sniff. Alternatively, hit me up on twitter using ‘Hey @lipglossgirl, I’d love to win that @RevlonSA Fire & Ice hamper’ and link to this post. The third way is to find me on Instagram (I’m @lipglossgirlxoxo) and like my mooi Fire & Ice piccie. (If it’s not up yet, give me five mins. Having n bietjie technical drama today.)

Good luck girls!

Love, love
