Fragrance Review - Yardley English lavender EDT

Image
I received this fragrance as a  gift on Mother's day from my sweethearts .Needless to say I was overjoyed to see them putting in so much effort to make me happy. They added a personalised note to the gift too !




Price  - Rs 849/- for 125 ml

Presentation - It comes in a cylindrical tall glass bottle with a golden top .

It claims to have top notes of Lavender leaves, Neroli and clary sage , Middle notes of Lavender oil and geranium and base notes of sandalwood ,tonka beans and musk .


What I liked about  Yardley English lavender EDT
1. The price is very affordable .

2. It has good longevity ,one would think that a cheap perfume may not last long but this one does last 3-4 hours easily even in hot summer season .

3. A moderate sillage (diffusion power).

4. A  nice floral Fougere perfume , like freshly cut grass ,great for summers .Can be worn as Night fragrance too .It has strong and sharp notes of Lavender probably because of the lavender oil , I can only smell lavender,geranium and mu…

IGP.com - Website Review

Father's Day is just around the corner and my kids were after me to help select an appropriate gift for their Dad.We did not want to get the usual flowers and cake and trudging from one shop to another with the kids was out of question in in this hot weather .







So we decided to explore different websites for online gifting and zeroed in on Indian Gifts Portal  because this one is proactive.If you are at a loss about about what to gift,they have a wide range of suggestions and filters according to profession,personal taste,age and sex of the person whom you want to gift.So for an elderly father, you could select from sugar free goodies,a carved walking stick or even a pocket watch ! ... And there are many more to choose from .

After going through the exhaustive gifts menu the kids asked me to order a Park Avenue Essentials Grooming Kit for men .

Food Review - The Drunk House (Rajouri Garden,Delhi )

Image
I recently visited The Drunk House Restaurant and Lounge in Rajouri Garden ,Delhi .This place is very popular among the Kitty ladies groups of that area and on most afternoons if you walk in there may very well be a  kitty party in progress .

Ambience 
Before you get any ideas about this place because of the Kitty reference , let me clarify that this place has an upbeat and modern feel to it and yet a cosy tavern like feel because of the wooden furniture and dim lighting .It has an in house DJ and a large screen for the young crowds .

Service -       I was particularly happy with the service as all the servers knew the details and descriptions about the food on the menu .They were also attentive and the food arrived in a short while of ordering . Menu 
Starters - For starters there was mutton Keema Pao( mutton mince in tawa masala served with pao ) , honey chilli potatoes (crispy potato batons tossed in sweet and spicy sauce ) and Jalapeno poppers (Cheesy croquettes of jalapeno served w…
