Advantages: Smells beautiful
Disadvantages: None at all for me
**Introduction and reason for purchase**
It's very rare that I personally go out and buy body sprays as it's something that never really appeals really, preferring to wear perfume instead. That doesn't stop me from having a huge collection of them as family and friends buy me gift sets for Birthdays/ Christmas presents etc so I end up using them quite regularly as it's more convenient to carry a small can of body spray in my bag than a large glass bottle of perfume.
For my most recent birthday my aunt bought me several beauty items with 3 Impulse body sprays being amongst them (1 can of Tease and 2 cans of Musk), having just finished using 'Tease' completely up my review will now focus on my thoughts on this product..
**What Impulse have to say**
"..Life's a playground, so have some fun! Be confident, be flirty, be naughty but nice!.."
Tease was created by Ann Gottlieb in 2006 from zesty notes of pineapple and exotic woods and it is available as a perfume deodorant spray.
Simply aim approx 15 to 20cm away and spray liberally over the body avoiding the facial area of course. The spray is clear and watery in consistency and feels damp against the skin when first applied but dries instantly so doesn't feel uncomfortable for long. I've used this after showering/ bathing as well as 'on the go' during the day and it's never stained any of my clothing after applying which is always a plus.
**Price, packaging & availability**
Tease comes housed in the same cylindrical shaped canister that all of the Impulse fragrances are available in - being slim line and upright standing and in the 'standard' 75ml size. (I say standard loosely as smaller versions are available in gift sets but generally the size is 75ml). Tease is a predominantly white can with 'tease' written in a pale green font and images of hearts, diamonds and flowers in green and purple enclosed in a heart adorn the front. All in all the image is soft, feminine and romantic and I think this comes across well with with packaging as it has caught my eye on more than one occasion whilst out shopping.
To access the spray there is an integrated nozzle featured at the top of the can with a swizzle effect lid that is both easy to close and open. Once open the large button on top is easy to press down and emits a rapid spray of the product via a small circular section at the tip of the nozzle.
Price wise Impulse is a a brand that dominates in the field of body sprays and I've seen prices range from £1 to £2.50 depending on which store I have been in at the time so it's worth looking around as they tend to be on offer for £1 at Superdrug and large supermarkets. As Impulse is very popular it can be found in most places that sell toiletries such as chemists, supermarkets and various other outlets though as there is a large choice of Impulse sprays available these days there may be limited choice to which fragrance you require.
**My experience of using Tease**
As previously just mentioned in my first paragraph I never buy body sprays myself as I always end up with a vast collection from gift sets given to me for Birthdays and Christmas. I do prefer to give myself a quick spritz of perfume but a lot of the times I will carry a can of whichever body spray I come across in my cupboard with me in my bag when out on errands or doing the school run. I don't drive so often I end up walking several miles a day, and even though I am confident with my deodorant I like to know that I can freshen up at any point with a blast of body spray for a quick fix.
I've been bought several different fragrances from the Impulse collection over the years and some I've favoured more than others, though Tease has really impressed me so much so that since using up the can I received for my birthday I've bought 2 more of the same fragrance myself (!).
The canister is easy to use as the swivel lid just rotates around which unlocks the mechanism and enables the nozzle to be pressed down with ease, thus creating a steady fine mist to emit. The spray feels icy cold on my skin though is instantly refreshing and cools down the skin straight away - not so good in the cold weather but ideal on a hot warm Summer's day especially when out and about.
The description of the pineapple and wood scents is spot on, and the first time I used it I could detect the zest of the pineapple instantly which is really uplifting and awakening before the woody notes start to develop and enhance the fragrance by changing it into something warmer and more comforting.
Longevity wise this does very well, and if I've sprayed this all over my body in the morning I can still detect a hint of the fragrance by dinnertime which is very impressive given it's *only* a body spray as I've used Eau de parfum's with less longevity as this. The fragrance really is very beautiful and what I like about it the best is it doesn't come across as too overpowering when first applied. I think that is one of the main reasons why I don't often buy body sprays myself as they can literally take your breath away when spraying and then the fragrance is lost within a short period of time making it seem quite pointless from my point of view, though this is simply my opinion.
Impulse have created some stunning scents over the years and whilst I've tried a fair few now thanks to gift sets I would say that Tease is so far the best and is a current favourite. Whilst I will never give up wearing perfume I do have days when I will just spritz this liberally all over knowing full well the beautiful aroma will last me for a good few hours and keep me smelling fresh.
As Impulse is merely meant to freshen you up it's not something I would consider wearing for a night out but for general day time usage then it's ideal. The lightweight can makes it easy to transport in my bag and whilst I tend to spritz rather a lot on in one go I've found even with constant use that one can will last for around 2 to 3 weeks depending on use which deems this very good value in my eyes.
This is just a body spray and doesn't act as a deodorant, so I always apply a separate underarm product and despite Tease being quite a prominent scent it doesn't clash with any fragranced body products and actually enhances any other scents which makes this such a 5 star product.
Summary: A lovely refreshing body spray
