Hi there! Today’s post is about 3 fragrance mists I picked up from TK Maxx – Eva & Davis Berries & Love, Green Inspiration and Vanilla Seduction. These fragrance mists are described as lightweight, refreshing and non-greasy, and they promise hydration and antioxidant benefits.
Let’s start with my favourite! Berries & Love with wild berries and spring flowers smells amazing. It smells like a chilled red fruit jelly (raspberries, redcurrant, pomegranate…) without added sugar. It’s delicious!
Green Inspiration – with notes of green and white tea, bergamot, lime and precious woods – is really nice too. The white tea note is very strong but that’s fine because it’s so nice! By the way, this fragrance mist would be suitable for men too!
Eva & Davis Vanilla Seduction isn’t very enjoyable. It smells cheap. The vanilla and amber mix is too sweet and quite artificial. However, I think that people who love very sweet fragrances would like or love this fragrance.
I think 2 of these 3 fragrance mists are very good – definitely better than certain designer fragrances that you can find in department stores, and they’re much cheaper! I paid £4.99 per fragrance mist (TK Maxx).
I tried to find out more about the brand Eva & Davis, but their social media accounts and their web site have been abandoned, and there are no links to any stores that might sell their products. So I think it’s safe to assume they’re no longer in business which is a shame because I would have been happy to buy Berries & Love and Green Inspiration again!
Hi there! Just recently I managed to finish one of the two Body Fantasies Pink Grapefruit Fantasy body sprays that I’ve had in my stash. So I decided to try two new Body Fantasies body sprays. I ordered these online, so I didn’t know if they were any good. But they were dirt cheap (special offer, £1.98 each) so I just bought them. And now that I’ve given these two body sprays a try, let me tell you more…
Body Fantasies Kissing In The Rain is afwul. It’s not a fragrance – it’s a smell! And I would describe the smell as a mix of cheap hairspray, bed head, wet dog and sweat. Truly awful.
Body Fantasies Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy isn’t much better. This fragrance is definitely ‘pink’, but it’s also sour. No, it’s not fresh, tangy or crisp. It smells sour. And that’s rather unpleasant…
Body Fantasies Kissing In The Rain and Pink Sweet Pea Fantasy are available as 94ml Perfume Body Spray for £3.99 each at Superdrug (if you’re in the UK). I got these two for £1.98 each (half price offer). However, I wish I had just ignored the half price offer! 😀
Hi there! Today’s post is about 2 I Love… body mists that I picked up a few months ago – I Love… Chocolates & Oranges Refreshing Body Spritzer and I Love… Gingerbread Refreshing Body Spritzer. I forgot that I had these body mists, but I remembered that I bought them when I saw they were still on sale (Primark) the other day. To make a long story short… I went looking for these two body mists in my stash – and I found them! And now that I’ve tested them, let me tell you more.
I Love… Chocolates & Oranges isn’t great at all. It smells cheap and synthetic – it’s borderline unpleasant. But since I hated the matching shower gel, it’s not surprising that I didn’t like the body mist.
I Love… Gingerbread smells like gingerbread! Whilst I’ve never liked gingerbread, I have to say this body mist smells exactly like the baked treats. If you like gingerbread, and if you’d like to smell like it, give this body mist a try!
Like I said, these 2 I Love… Refreshing Body Spritzers are available at Primark. My local store isn’t the biggest Primark store, but they have lots of different I Love… products (shower gels, body sprays, etc – different fragrances) for £1 each!
Hi there! I’ve been using all sorts of NSPA products for quite some time now – shower gels, body butters, body mists… you name it. And today I’m reviewing NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist and NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist.
NSPA’s Mango Fragrance Body Mist isn’t great. I was hoping it would smell like Boots’ mango fragrance – but it’s nothing like it. NSPA’s mango fragrance isn’t horrible, but it smells rather cheap and synthetic. I’ll pass this body mist on to someone who isn’t that picky with all-over body sprays. 🙂
NSPA’s Vanilla Fragrance Body Mist is decent. I don’t think the vanilla fragrance is particularly special. However, the vanilla scent is pleasant, sweet and a little ‘boozy’. Sometimes I spray it on my scarf or on my husband’s pillow. 🙂 Yes, my husband likes that! I think that, if you like vanilla fragrances in general, you should give this body mist a try!
NSPA products are exclusive to Asda. The body mists are available as 200ml for £3.
Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance that’s been sitting in my stash for quite some time – it’s Madly Kenzo Eau De Toilette by Kenzo.
I bought this fragrance just after it was launched which, I think, was some time in 2011. Back then I used this fragrance for a few days (a few weeks tops) before I moved on to something else (and forgot about it).
If you’re wondering how I could possibly remember that… I don’t! But I’ve known myself for a long time and I know my product habits. 😀
Now onto the fragrance! Madly Kenzo EdT contains the following fragrant notes: pear and litchi (top notes), jasmine and heliotrope (heart notes), and musk and cedarwood (base notes).
Whilst these notes don’t sound too exciting, I think Madly Kenzo is actually quite nice. It’s sweet but fresh, fruity and floral, youthful and happy (!), and it has this nude thing going on (like J Lo Glow or Narciso Rodriguez EdT, even though Madly Kenzo EdT is much lighter and considerably less dense).
I have to say that I’m enjoying this fragrance very much. I’ve rediscovered it a few weeks ago and since then I’ve been wearing it at least 2 to 3 times a week. At the moment, Madly Kenzo EdT is one of my favourite day and office fragrances.
I have a 30ml bottle (I think I’ve got about 20ml left in the bottle), but Madly Kenzo EdT is also available as 50ml and 80ml. How much is it? I’ve done a quick online search and I found the small 30ml bottle ‘on sale’ (yeah, right) for over £40. But I also found the big 80ml bottle for just under £26. So if you’d like to buy this fragrance, don’t forget to compare prices online first. 🙂
Hi there! I’m still working through my 2015 Christmas toiletries sets, and I realised that I bought a Boots Extracts fragrance set (just like 2016…). The set was £3 and it contained 3 fragrances (70ml each) – and I will review 2 of them today. Now meet Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Spray and Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Spray.
Boots Extracts Fruity Strawberry Body Spray isn’t a favourite. The strawberry fragrance isn’t unpleasant, but it smells very generic. I used this body spray once to test it. And now I’ll pass it on to my teenage relative. Actually, my relative will receive 2 of these sprays because both the 2015 set and the 2016 set contained a strawberry body spray. If you’d like to try this product, it’s £3.50 for a 150ml bottle at Boots.
Boots Extracts Zingy Satsuma Body Spray is a limited edition fragrance from 2015. Whilst I think it’s not that special, I have to say that it does smell pleasant. That’s because the satsuma fragrance isn’t just a one-dimensional fruity fragrance. It smells like a mix of satsumas, satsuma peel and orange flower. Quite nice, actually.
Have you tried Boots Extracts products? If so, which products do you love the most? Feel free to get in touch. And thanks for stopping by!
Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance which I know I’ll finish soon – Burberry Weekend For Women. A quick look at Burberry’s web site revealed that Burberry Weekend contains the following notes: tangerine, tree sap and reseda plant (top notes), wild rose, peach blossom, iris, hyacinth and nectarine (heart notes), and cedarwood and sandalwood (base notes). If you read on, I’ll tell you what I think of this fragrance.
I think Burberry Weekend is the ultimate nice and inoffensive office fragrance. It’s light, it doesn’t last long, it smells floral and fruity – in a grown-up way, and it’s perfectly forgettable. I understand why someone would buy it (well, after all, I bought it too), although I don’t understand why someone would buy it again and again and again… I mean no disrespect to anyone who loves this fragrance. And I honestly think that Burberry Weekend is a pleasant fragrance – there’s no argument here. But it’s not very special or individual at all…
In any event, I’m glad I only bought the 30ml bottle. And as of today the bottle is about half full. I think I’ll be able to finish this one quickly. It might not be in this month’s empties, maybe not even in next month’s empties (I like warmer fragrances when it’s cold). But this one will be gone by early spring.
Burberry Weekend For Women is available as 30ml for £27, 50ml for £45 and 100ml for £60. However, it’s always on special somewhere. The 30ml bottle can usually be found for about £15, and the 100ml bottle can be yours for less than £30 if you spend 30 seconds comparing prices online. 😉
