Disadvantages: Sickly sweet scent, overly floral
I mentioned in a previous review that I got some body sprays for Christmas. I'm a perfume girl not a body spray wearing girl as my experience had led me to come to the conclusion that body spray smells like air freshener on my skin. But I remained open minded and decided to give my Christmas gifts a try rather than throw them in the bin. With Impulse Romantic Spark I should have opted for the bin option!
Impulse Romantic Spark comes in a 75ml white aerosol can. The lid of the can is fixed but twists to cover the aerosol hole. To dispense the product you press down on the top of the can when the hole is uncovered. This is a handy design and easily transportable as you don't have to worry about the lid falling off etc.
The packaging design is similar to other scents from the Impulse range which is reasonably girly and feminine. Impulse Romantic Spark is written in lilac. Underneath there is a heart design which is made up of purple flowers and gold stars. From looking at the packaging alone you would immediately assume that this is a floral scent but perhaps not as floral smelling as other scents from the Impulse range.
This was a present but after a quick scan around the shelves of Boots, a 75ml can costs £1.99. Asda currently have an offer on where you can get cans of Impulse Body Spray for £1.
Therefore a reasonably cheap product especially if you shop around.
***Impulse Romantic Spark***
Following the directions I held the can 15cm away from skin and sprayed over my skin. On application the body spray feels very wet (and cold) however soon dries. Once dry I could not feel the body spray on my skin.
The can states "Romantic Spark is a delicate blend of violet notes and white wood scents."
As soon as you spray the body spray on your skin the floral violet scent is apparent. This is very strong sweet and very floral, far too floral for my preferences. I would have expected from reading the product description that the white wood would give the body spray a more musky scent however this is not the case the Romantic Spark just smells very sweet.
As the scent develops on skin and the skin warms the floral scent of violets becomes more apparent and a lot sweeter. This is a very strong scent and very sickly and reminded me of a floral air freshener. For a body spray this is a very heavy scent and more like a strong floral scented perfume. Not recommended for those that like fresh light fruity scents like myself.
Impulse Romantic Spark is a great example why I don't wear body spray as I tend to find that body sprays usually smell like air freshener hence why I choose perfume every time. Impulse Romantic Spart has a very strong floral scent which gets more floral and sweeter as it develops on your skin throughout the day. This is a very sickly scent which I can only recommend for those that like VERY strong floral scents. It definitely should be avoided by those that like fresh, fruity light scents.
A cheap body spray but worth avoiding unless you don't mind smelling like an air freshener all day long!
Summary: A strong sickly scented floral body spray from impulse
