Yves Rocher Les Plaisirs Nautre Blackberry Eau de Toilette
(retail: $6, 0.67 oz)
Again, you can purchase this product on the Yves Rocher website where it often goes on sale. There's also a full-size version (3.4 oz) for $12. You can also get bath cubes, lotion and shower gel in this fragrance--just search "blackberry" on the Yves Rocher website and all of the options will pop up.
Yves Rocher fragrances are made in France and I like that this one actually contains blackberry fruit extract and not just a synthetic version of blackberry like a lot of other inexpensive fragrances.
Some of you may be too young to remember this but, back in the day, The Body Shop made a perfume oil called Dewberry (you can see a bottle shot of it here). They still make a Dewberry body wash, but the perfume oil was ridiculously popular in the late 80s and early 90s. Well, I dare say that Yves Rocher Blackberry is the closest I've come to finding a dupe for The Body Shop Dewberry.
To my nose, there's more going on in this fragrance than just straight up blackberry. I smell black currant as well, and lots of it. It's a rich, syrupy, sweet and tart fragrance that makes my mouth water every time I sniff it. I think that if you like black currant and blackberry fragrances, you might enjoy this one quite a bit.
Staying power is very decent for me. The Les Plaisirs fragrances are generally pretty fleeting, but this one seems to stay around a bit longer (around four hours for me).
FINAL VERDICT: If you like black currant or blackberry fragrances, this could be a fun option for you to consider the next time you're placing an Yves Rocher order. I definitely love it, because it very much reminds me of the long-ago discontinued Dewberry perfume oil from The Body Shop. It's got that same rich, syrupy, dark berry vibe to it as The Body Shop fragrance, but it comes in a much more convenient spray bottle.
