"I’m wearing Almond Cucumber by Shay and Blue today. It’s a very original composition, a touch of old-school cleanser, a crumble of macaroon, a spoonful of tatziki, a crunch of turrón and a refreshing inhalation of Riviera floral. It smells both creamy and gossamer clean. The almond elements have been done with subtlety and reverence. It is a hard note to pull off, it can be too bitter, too baking, too marzipan and too cyanide. This is just right. The mimosa is romantic and swoons gently onto the skin, making you feel rested and ready I think for love." The Silver Fox on A Scent Of Elegance

Almond Cucumber is a fragrance of refinement and softness blending refreshing green cucumber with delicate mimosa and sensual almond wood. Soft warm woodiness and thirst-quenching freshness create a poetic, effortlessly contemporary perfume.

  • Top Note - A splash of refreshing green cucumber slices cuts a thirst-quenching first impression.
  • Heart Note - Almond blossom warming the blend in its heart with bursts of delicate winter mimosa from Grasse.
  • Base Note - Deep in the dry-down the almonds ripen into crunchy chopped nuts and densely sensual almond wood.
  • In a rich, long-lasting Eau De Parfum concentration.
  • Beautifully wrapped in a gift presentation box with striped grosgrain ribbon.

Handcrafted in England with real flowers, fruits and spices. This perfume contains over two pounds of real Mimosa. Almond Cucumber was created in 2012 by Julie Massé, Perfumer, and Dom De Vetta, Founder. We do not test on animals. Find us on the PETA list of cruelty-free companies.

Scrummy
I have been using almond cucumber for a while now, in fact I have bought another bottle at Harvey Nics.
The cucumber is fresh, clean and light and is the initial smell, the almond makes an appearance after about 45 mins, this is warmer and smells like a really dark chocolate on me. The cucumber still lingers though and I love this.
The fragrance lasts all day on me.
I use it most days, having intended it to be my spring/autumn fragrance.
It makes me smile.

HEAVEN SCENT
I had the pleasure of visiting Shay & Blue and was introduced to the range of perfumes. The Almond & Cucumber was my personal favourite, a friend commented on how lovely it is when wearing it to work.
The scent lasts all day, I just love it and will repurchase this particular fragrance, perhaps a smaller bottle for travel as my 100ml came all the way to Greece with me on holiday!

Heavenly and Divine Scents!
I came into Shay & Blue store in York Street and was blown away by the
wonderful array of scents!
I decided on two scents, the Almond Cucumber and Amber Rose. I love wearing the almond cucumber during the day, very subtle and sophisticated. I feel very confident and have had many compliments already. Highly recommended

Review by Mrs. Anne Lawrence "Chic and Elegant" / (Posted on 16/09/2015)
too intense
Unfortunately I found this much too intense and overpowering. In my opinion it doesn't work with the wearer' s own body scent creating something really individual like purely plant based perfumes do. Truly natural plant based fragrances are hard to find, good ones, not smelling like a simple mixture of a few essential oils are even harder to come by. But they are out there and, although pricey, worth every penny.

An amazing fragrance!
I receive so many compliments when I wear Almond Cucumber, it is deliciously fresh but still very delicate. It is very modern and wearable especially in the past hot summer months!

I also love the 30ml size as it has been perfect for keeping in my handbag and taking away on holiday!

Buy it!
At first I simply got this as a last moment thing but I'm so glad I did! This size means that I can place it in my bag with little effort. The smell is so fantastic, I'm going to try the Blood Orange next.
