Impulse Tease Body Spray
Advantages: Scent will suit some people, scent lasts almost all day
Disadvantages: Not a scent I like for me
Impulse is a brand I'm sure most, if not everyone has heard of. They're the brand I first used as a young pre-teen before stopping for several years as I developed a preference for perfume over body spray. Recently however, I've begun to use body sprays more often in an attempt to save money and have turned back to the Impulse brand with mixed results. The one I am reviewing this time is Impulse Tease.
What Is It, What Do Impulse Say?
According to the blurb on the back of the can this scent is designed to make you "feel utterly feminine and seductive! ... A dazzling blend of zesty pineapple and exotic woody scent. It will make you smell fabulous and feel gorgeous."
As with all Impulse canisters this has a plastic lid which you need to turn to reveal the spray hole. However this causes no problems and the button is easy to press. Once pressed it releases a fine mist which goes on slightly damp but dries almost immediately.
When first sprayed the scent is very strong, quite sweet and although definitely fruity with maybe a hint of pineapple I wouldn't say that this was the only scent detectable.
Once this initial scent has settled the wood undertones become slightly more prominent although they still provide nothing more then a background to the previously fruity scent which, by now, is definitely more floral then fruity. This is quite a strange combination which to be honest I'm not sure I like!
Within an hour or two of spraying this settles into the base notes of the fragrance which, whilst definitely floral I wouldn't say that the wood has disappeared completely, more like blended with the floral tones to give an almost earthy tone to the scent.
I have tried spraying this on both my clothes and directly onto my skin. The scent goes through the same notes in around the same time scale no matter what it is sprayed onto. It also lasts the same amount of time which, although nearly a whole day, it doesn't quite last all the way through and so you may find that you need to reapply once.
The smell this body spray has definitely means that it's better suited to day rather then evening wear and summer rather then winter. I've always thought that Impulse is a brand for younger teenagers and although there are some scents that appeal to me in their range this is not one of them. This isn't to say that I don't like it - I do. I just feel that it's slightly too young for me and so would be better suited to younger teenagers.
As far as I can tell this is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.
The aerosol is also recyclable.
As with all aerosols this comes with several warnings. These are: keep out of reach of children, protect can from sunlight and do not expose to temperatures over 50degrees, do not pierce or burn even after use, do not spray on or near a naked flame and do not use on sore or broken skin.
Price, Availability And Recommendation
Impulse body sprays are widely available. Prices do vary so it's worth shopping around but expect to pay between £1.50 and £2.
As for recommendation based on how I feel it suits me I can only give it three out of five stars but I do think it would be better suited to those younger then me. That said, I do quite like the scent so try it in store before purchasing to see if it's something you would wear.
Summary: May be suited to younger teenagers but not for me
