Thoughts |
As you saw, I got this perfume for Christmas last year which you can find under my What I got for Christmas post.This is my first celebrity perfume and I actually like it. It wasn’t my first choice but i was really glad to get it. At first I didn’t want to get into all the hype with celebrity perfumes and I don’t really favor the celebrity who has the perfume I just chose this one for the scent but I do like so celebrities and would like to try their perfumes and first on my list is Taylor Swift.

The scent is not too strong and great for everyday. I don’t like having such a overpowering scent so this is perfect for me. The staying power isn’t that great and I have to apply it twice or if I’m feeling like I want a burst of freshness I apply more. As soon as I spray it there is a light sweet and citrusy scent and it gets more subtle through the day. I kind of like the base notes more than the top notes because those are mostly what I love to smell. 

I also love that I don’t sneeze when I spray it or smell it while I wear it. I am so sensitive when I wear perfumes so that’s why I dot wear strong or no perfume at all. I hate girls in my class who spray such strong scents so I like to stay with the warmer and sweeter scents.

Overall, I think it is a very nice a light scent that is not so overpowering but also not that light that you cant smell it.

What is your favorite celebrity perfume?

    I wanted to buy this a couple of months ago because it sounds like it's light and fruity. I never buy fragrances without trying them first though so I opted not to purchase it. I'll definitely have to see if I can find a tester in store sometime.

    Yeah, totally know what you mean about the celeb perfumes.. Sometimes the celeb can actually put me off a perfectly nice perfume. Got to admit I've got a Britney Spears perfume knocking about somewhere. But shhhh! Don't tell anyone!HELenpierrelecat

    I got this perfume for my birthday just this year, and I am in love with it. I actually got the whole collection from my beautiful auntie which included the perfume spray you're displaying above, as well as the body cream, and roll-on perfume. As well as the shower gel, which I've already used (whoops).It's such a good purchase! Even though mine was a gift xJes | Naturally Jes
