===The Product=== Can of Impulse True Love Body Spray. Tall white can with pink hearts and floral images. Freesia and tangerine body fragrance. Cinched in neck to can. 75 mls and highly flammable. White spray cap which is self sealing. Dermatologically tested ? gentle on your skin. Hold can 15cms from body when spraying. Lots of warnings regarding the spray can ? do not puncture, do not spray near naked flames or while smoking, do not inhale etc. The main ingredient is alcohol denat. Made by unilever. ===Cost=== 98p at Superdrug. I believe the full price is around 1.99. Comes in11 varieties. ===My Opinion=== Impulse Sprays are a bargain range of products produced by Unilever. I do not buy them regularly but recently while ordering from Superdrug I ordered one for 98p to make up the total to 10 pounds to save paying postage. The design of the images on the cans have changed since I last bought one so I decided to try a different one so ordered this True Love version. Not having tried any in the shops it was just a random choice but I do like citrus smells so figured one with tangerine might be a good bet. For the price these cans are great value. The top has to be twisted for the spray part to pop up ? very handy as you never loose the cap and its a good way of shutting the can if you carry it around in your bag ? safer than a glass bottle of perfume and also very lightweight. The smell of this spray is quite strong when first sprayed on and it does come out in a strong blast ? not only does it perfume yourself but also the room ? so a great inexpensive room freshener as well ? or if you buy one that you are not too keen on. This spray is quite sharp and citrusy ? not exactly identifiable as tnagerine but it does have a sharpness to it but it is also very fresh and clean smelling. I do not detect any floral freesia fragrance but the overall smell is quite pleasing and invigorating. It smells quite strongly for an hour, then faintly for perhaps an hour or so more. Not in the league of an expensive perfume of course but great to carry with you for a quick freshen up and to have a quick blast of fragrance. I mush prefer to carry a can in my bag rather than a glass bottle, especially as I love my handbags so much. You can be freshened up anywhere and one or two squirts is all that is needed. At under a pound they provide an inexpenisve treat and a good change of fragrance without breaking the bank. I am giving 4 stars as although the fragrance does not last for very long they are inexpensive. ===Star Rating=== 4 stars. ===Would I Recommend?=== Yes. ===Website=== www.impulsefragrances.co.uk www.unilever.com
I've been wearing Impulse body spray since 1978 when I used to work in a busy office. I would give myself a quick spray in the morning and then forget about it. Other people would notice it and comment on the lovely perfume I was wearing.
Nothing has changed - I'm still wearing it in 2013 and still getting compliments. The spray can has changed shape a little over the year and I like the cool, matt finish. The white background with pink flowers is really pretty. The off-white plastic top can be twisted to open or close. The can contains 75 ml.
This particular fragrance is really nice as it is soft and quite sweet and it does last all day. Like all of the Impulse fragrances, they smell a lot more expensive than they really are and it's great to have lots of smells to choose from. This is one of the best.
One of my favourite daily body sprays is True Love by Impulse.
To get the spray out you have to press the top to squirt out the spray. What I like about these cans is that they have a 'twisty top' so that you can twist the top round so that it won't spray when you don't want it to. The can is a great size - it's fairly slim and so easily fits in your handbag - great as because the spray tends to fade, I tend to have to keep reapplying it throughout the day and so for me the size is great as it means that it is easy to carry around in my bag as it does not take up too much space.
When first applied, the spray does smell quite strongly, however it does fades after an hour or so, and so I tend to keep on reapplying it throughout the day. I find that a can doesn't last me that long - only around three or four days if I have to keep reapplying it throughout the day which is annoying as unless these sprays are on offer then they are not really cheap to be able to buy all the time which is a shame as I really like this scent.
I like the fact that the scent is very clean and fresh and makes me feel really girlie and feminine. I like wearing this scent and I find that when I am at work lots of people comment on my lovely perfume and seem to be quite suprised when I tell them it's 'only Impulse'. This spray seems to appeal to lots of women and so I would say that it is suitable for women of all ages. I know teenagers, young women and women in their 50's and 60's who wear this perfume.
Impulse True Love (as well as the rest of the Impulse range) is available to buy from places such as Boots, Superdrugs and supermarkets. They tend to retail at around £2 which I do think is quite expensive - although I have to say that they are nice body sprays even if I do think that they are quite expensive. However, they are regularly on offer - usually for less than a pound and so I tend to stock up whenever I see them on offer so it is worth shopping around to see if you can buy them on offer -as you usually can.
All in all, I would definitely recommend Impulse True Love.

This is a body fragrance from Impulse called "true love". I didn't realise until I saw the above image that this is infact an old Impulse fragrance that I have just in new packaging. My favourite impulse is tease but I received a true love gift set recently and so have been keeping this body spray in my handbag.
The packaging is simple but functional. It is a small thin pink and white canister with a spinning plastic top that reveals the aperture where the spray is released upon pressing down. The packaging is very girly and petite. On the front is the product name and on the back there are directions for use, safety instructions and manufacturer details. There is 75ml of product.
You can often find the impulse range on offer in places like Wilkinsons where you can pick them up for £1.
This is a product you just can't go wrong with really. The product sprays evenly and easily from the can and the smell is always lovely no matter what variety you choose. This "true love" impulse has a very fruity scent and I put that down to the tangerine description. The smell lasts for quite a while on the body although the smell does fade after the first half hour or so but you can easily reapply a quick blast if needs be. I always have an impulse in my handbag and tend to use it just to freshen up especially if I've had a long day or I'm off to meet somebody. The fella also compliments me when using this impulse which is always a bonus, it's just one of those go to products really.
Overall a really nice product at a reasonable price. It's not ronseal but it does exactly what it says on the tin. 5 stars.
Impulse is quite a popular brand and can be found easily in most stores from supermarkets to shops such as Boots and Superdrug. I bought this impulse true love body spray from Boots where it was on offer at 99p down from £1.99.
I decided to go for the true love scent, I always want to try different products rather than going for the same one each time.. but I find impulse change their packaging quite often that I always forget which one I've tried before. For instance I thought I hadn't tried this one before from looking at the packaging and so got it, but now looking at the above picture I can see it is one I previously used to buy.. the design has just changed. (I'm awful at remembering the names - as there is so many!)
The packaging has a colourscheme of pink and white and it is quite a girly packaging. There's pictures of flowers and hearts on the cannister and the scent is of freesia and tangerine.
The back of the can has quite a loved up description where it claims it is a fragrance that 'overwhelms the heart and turns men into lovebirds' (along with a few other lines) haha.. I never tend to read the description of the body sprays but they are quite unrealistic and optimistic! I'd rather it just stated how nice the floral fragrance was.
The scent itself is a nice one, it is floral and lasts a while and is different to the impulse I previously reviewed.
I think all their scents rely upon a fruity or floral scent and are quite distinctive and feminine.
I tend not to buy body sprays as much as I used to and have started purchasing perfumes more, but the sprays are still nice to purchase every now and again and use instead of perfume.. plus they are a lot cheaper.
To spray, you just hold the can at arms distance and spray in short bursts. You should not spray it on irritated or broken skin and obviously keep away from your eyes.
I give the product 5 stars and will probably purchase it again when it is on offer.
Thanks for reading :)

Body sprays are something that I can live without. I use an anti-perspirant deodorant on a daily basis and usually top that up with a standard deodorant just to ensure that I have no problems at all. I use perfume on a daily basis, sometimes more than once per day, and occasionally I will use a Champneys body spray that comes provided within a kit that I buy regularly, however, in all body sprays are not something that I actively spend money on. For Christmas 2011 I was fortunate enough to receive lots of lovely gifts, particularly from my Mum and sister, and one such gift was an Impulse Body Spray gift set. This was one of my smaller presents and was likely intended as a stocking filler type gift and was a gift that I was really happy to receive. One body spray that I received within the set was this 'True Love' one and this usually costs around £1.99 per 75ml spray with frequent special offers available, particularly in Boots. I received a 35ml can of this which was quite sweet and nice.
Impulse is a brand that I used to love when I was in secondary school, however, because I have moved on to slightly more expensive products since then I haven't ever really been tempted back to buying or using their items again. As this was a gift set I figured I'd give each fragrance a try and as it turned out I've really liked having one of the cans I received in my handbag just in case I encounter a nasty smell or notice that my clothes aren't smelling quite as fresh as I would like them to be.
The packaging is quite sweet. A pretty standard can with a nice girlie looking detail on it. There is a heart on the front made up of different colours and the lid is simple to remove. A simple press on the dispenser sprays a reasonable amount of spray without being overpowering. The 35ml versions look slightly different to the 75ml version but obviously this does not affect the quality of the product inside so makes no difference to me at all. I would say the packaging is functional and yet eye catching at the same time, although not as much as some of the other Impulse fragrances available.
This sounds like quite a floral fragrance upon first glance, with mentions of freesias in the ingredients, however, despite my dislike for most floral fragrances I figured I'd give this a try anyway. This fragrance is actually nothing like I expected. While there are floral tones to it they are not overpowering and they certainly do not make up the whole fragrance. This spray felt light and breezy when I sprayed it on and while the scent did last for quite some time I did not worry that it would be overly noticeable. I would say that this is a real spring time spray as its light and perfect for spring days when the weather is just starting to freshen up and you might even venture out in to the garden without your coat on. I would say that I could notice the scent for at least an hour but potentially it lasted longer than this and I just got used to smelling it.
In all I have been pleasantly surprised by 'True Love'. I thought it might be overpowering and very floral once I glanced at the ingredients, however, I was surprised by just how light and refreshing this scent actually turned out to be. I would definitely recommend this to ladies who are big fans of body sprays. The price for a 75ml bottle if a little steep at £1.99, if you ask me, but I feel that a 3 for 2 or buy one get one free offer represents really good value for money, particularly as I've tried several of the other body sprays too recently and they've been just as nice too! There are quite a few to choose from but I would definitely recommend this one if you don't want anything too overpowering.
I think its obvious but I'll say anything that I give this product 5 out of 5 stars. The packaging is nice, there are frequent special offers, the spray is long lasting without being too strong or floral and in all it ticks all the boxes.
Impulse True Love is a fantastic smelling deodorant, you need only use a small amount to smell fresh and sweet.
True Love comes in varied can sizes, and I was lucky enough to get a box of twenty 35ml mini cans from a friend, unfortunately they have all gone now, which is a great disappointment.
These small cans were incredibly handy for adventures out and if you can find them they are a great purchase.
All cans have been dermatologically tested, which means no harm will come to your skin.
True Love is a Unilever brand, which seems quite a good achievement as they have recently aimed to halve their products footprint.
Although recently, Unilever have been criticised by Greenpeace for causing deforestation, this could have a very negative effect on their products.
There are serious disadvantages such as, when too much deodorant is sprayed it can be quite a overpowering smell and it makes you feel slightly ill, and you don't wish to use it anymore.
The price for this sized can is very expensive and not good value for money, unless you can find a good deal which should be available in certain stores.
-Small cans are good value for money and easy to use and carry around.
-Gentle on skin.
-Expensive for bigger sized cans.
In my bathroom cabinet I have a range of body sprays to pick from each morning which tend to come from two brands - Boots Natural Collection and Impulse. Both of these ranges smell great, and are affordable and good quality. Of the two I tend to buy more of the Impulse range as there is such a wide range of scents and they last on your skin for hours.
Impulse was founded in 1972 in South Africa initially and was then brought to the UK in 1979 by Elida Gibbs. It was tagged with the by-line 'Men can't help acting on impulse", with new fragrances being added regularly.
It was only in 2009 that the whole brand was re-vamped to make it more contemporary, into the packaging we now all know and love. They are now the UK's number one in the women's body spray market. Their revised mission statement was to offer consumers delicate everyday sections and have been launching a new fragrance every year meaning the range is constantly updated and kept up to day.
One of my favourite fragrances from Impulse is True Love which has notes of a freesias coming through as soon as you begin spraying it. It is said to be a mix of Freesias, Amber and Muguet designed to "inspire romance and attraction". It is sold in one of Impulses standard sized aerosol cans which hold 75 ml. The Impulse cans are tall and slim. The top turns around to reveal the spray nozzle which you depress to apply. The can's are well designed and in the case is predominantly white/cream with a red-ish heart design in the middle. These 75ml cans are priced at around £1.99 each, but it tend to but them when they are on offer, normally either 99p each of 2 for £2 which makes them much better value.
The True Love fragrance is a light floral scent. You can instantly pick up on the scent of the freesias. It is a very feminine scent that is not too heavy of strong. It is ideal for everyday use.
The spray nozzle allows a wide diffusion of the body spray and works not only when the can is upright but when angled allowing easy application. The 75 ml can last me around 2 weeks when used once/twice daily. I often carry a can in my handbag as well to allow me to freshen up if I need to and as the cans are so slim they easily fit without taking up any room.
The Impulse range is well presented and looks great. The have a wonderful range of fragrances that is updated and added to each year. The True Love scent is light but still lasts all day and has never irritated my sensitive skin so it really is ideal for daily use. The price of £1.99 may seem a little steep for how small the cans are but their long lasting scent is worht the money as many cheaper versions wear off very quickly
Every year for Christmas my mum makes sure to get me a little pack of body sprays, often testing the waters with different brands, so that I can enter the new year smelling fresh and good. This year was no different, and one of the sprays I was given is the True Love fragrance from Impulse.
I've used Impulse for a number of years now and am usually delighted with their products. The smell is typically sweet and feminine and they last a pretty long time. This spray is now different, as it provides you with a spring-time flowery fragrance that is pleasant enough, and doesn't choke your sense, or simply drown your skin. It is very gentle on skin I have found, particularly if I spray before putting on my outerwear, which is useful because as someone with sensitive skin, these things can often be an issue.
You can buy a 75ml bottle or a 35ml although the latter often comes as part of a group with an array of other Impulse body sprays. The 75ml bottle is usually around £1-3 depending where you buy, and if you keep your eyes are you are sure to find deals especially in Superdrug and Boots.
It is important to remember, however, that this is not a deodorant and is you are planning on spending lots of time in heated conditions or exercising excessively, it is necessary to spray some deodorant firsthand to avoid any unwanted smells. Similarly, because it is not a deodorant it doesn't limit perspiration and is simply a delightful smell to cloak yourself in.
I'm very glad I was given this as a gift and since then have used it frequently, although personally I enjoy rotating my body sprays to sample a variety of different products and fragrances. This is one of only 3 scents I have enjoyed enough to consistently go back to (the other being an Impulse brand spray and a Lynx for women spray which is a bit pricier). It has been dermatological tested lasts me for a couple of hours, long enough to go out for the day without feeling its effects wear off.
It is definitely something I would recommend, as well as the entire Impulse brand itself, as they always ensure quality and smell great!
I like to use the Impulse body sprays when I need a bit of fragrance in my life but don't want to use my expensive perfumes. These little spray tins of lovely different fragrances do just the trick, they are cheap, smell nice and offer different smells for different moods that you are in. To be honest I bought this one just because I like the canister it came in and did not really bother giving it a smell as the fragrance description on the tin sounded fine. For £1.99 for a 75ml you couldn't really go wrong anyway even if you ended up not liking the fragrance.
The can is a light light pink colour and features a big pink heart made out of lots of little red and pink hearts. Its a really nice romantic design and one that wouldn't look out of place on a more expensive perfume. In fact this Impulse body spray is all about romance. Impulse say that True Love inspires romantic reactions in men, live the teal love you dreamed about. Well, I can't say that my husband showers me in flowers and diamonds when I wear this fragrance but he does say that he likes the smell.
The smell is described as having notes of freesias, muguet and amber. To me its quite flowery and somewhat light with a nice after smell when you have applied it for a while. It is really pleasant and not too overpowering or sweet in any way. It is such a nice day time fragrance and you can really wear it all day long. It does have a bit of a aerosol smell to it meaning that you can tell its come from a can but its still nice for a basic fragrance.
The can is just like all the other Impulse sprays, the top swivels to allow you to shut off the spray when you are not using the can. This is useful if you keep it in your makeup bag or carry it around with you so it does not go off accidentally. All in all a nice version in the Impulse range.
As with the majority of my beauty buys I tend to try and buy these when they are on offer as it seems that they often go on offers such as 3 for 2. I tend to wear a bodyspray after my deodorant rather than a perfume when I am working as working in the care industry you do feel that you need to keep reapplying due to the smells you are subjected to.
The impulse range can be bought in supermarkets, chemists and often discount stores although I still find the supermarket is the cheapest when they have the offers on. The bodysprays retail at £1.99 when not on offer and this is for a 75ml tin.
The tins are slender and the top has a turning spray piece so that you can turn it to the off position when you are not using it and therefore it is not likely to be accidentally sprayed when in your handbag which I like. On the front of the tin is the name of the make and of the fragrance and then there is a picture of a cross which is made up of lovely pink and red hearts and then there are a couple of stray hearts too. As the tins main colour is cream the design stands out really well and makes the tin very attractive.
On the rear of the tin you are told that this is dermatologically tested and that it is gentle on your skin, to use you need to hold the product 15cm away from your skin and spray. The spray is quite powerful and you only need a little to give a musky flowery smell as the smell is quite strong. You are also given lots of warnings on the tin such as the usual keep out of direct sunlight and then you have a list of ingredients and contact information for the makers Unilever.
I like the impulse range but this is not one of my favourites simply as the smell is a little too strong for me, the spray is gentle to your skin and doesn't irritate at all and these are certainly worth the price especially when on offers.
I'm not the biggest fan of body spray as I'm more of a perfume kind of person however, when the funds are low I usually go straight to the impulse sections of boots and pick out one of their sprays. True love is usually the one I go for.
On the spray it says 'true love with freesias, muguet and amber notes. Well, I don't really know what any of those are supposed to smell like but I can tell you that they probably smell as wonderful as this spray. I'm not the best person for describing perfume smells but I always smell summer when I use this spray. Mostly because I tend to use this spray in the summer so it more or a reminiscent smell...
The spray is cheap for around £1 at boots though usually on a buy one get one free deal. I would wait for those deals as although it's cheap, it goes fast! This is the reason I tend to go for perfumes and body spray is never long lasting and I'm constantly throwing empty cans away! However, the bottle is small so can be carried around much more easily and is a less of a downer when it gets lost!
Its safe in your bag as it has a twisty top instead of a cap so is unlikely to go off in your bag unless you don't twist it closed. The amount of time I lose a lid on a body spray and find a big wet patch in my bag from a can going off on its own, it's great to have a twisted cap instead.
The can is quite pretty with a heart made out of flowers on the front with a light pink surrounding it.
I would recommend this to any impulse lovers!
I was abit body spray crazy in Superdrug yesterday, in which I brought 3 different Impulse fragrances, which I've never tried before, but looked the best (and were only 95p), Impulse True Love was included in my buying spree.
The can is white, with a twist lock top which is beige. The can has a pink, red and purple heart, which is really artistic, but also really girly, with the colours, which I love, but other women might be put off with the over the top girly look. The Impulse logo and name of the product are on the can, which might encourage fans of Impulse to buy, as the can isn't that different so wouldn't always encourage people to buy the product.
The can has another twist, lock cap, which is enables the spray to only be used when locked, which stops the can from accidentally spraying, like some other brands might do, and this features really good and easy to use, you just twist the cap to lock, which then blocks the hole where the spray comes out and then twist to unlock. Easy! To spray the spray, you just position the can and spray, I find that if you spray from 20cm away, it gives a good, even coverage, but it is light enough coverage to wear throughout the day, but for the night, I think that a closer more intense coverage is better.
The scent of the Impulse is completely different to the Very Pink scent, it is much more classically feminine. The scent is very sweet, which I love, but it might not suit everyone's tastes, but also smells very fresh and light, which is very nice especially in the summer, as it freshens up the whole of your body. Also as the body spray is called True Love, I can sense a romantic smelling undertone, which is excellent for a romantic night out! The fragrances are also subsidiary fruity, with scents of pears, limes, apricots, which sounds random, but really adds a fruity hint to the fragrance, which enables the fragrance to have several layers of scent.
I would highly recommend the True Love body spray, but I would try before you buy, as I love the scent, but I know not everyone will, as it is quite sweet. The spray is really easy to use and lasted all day, and was suitable for day and night wear, but it would need a top up before, as it would be quite faded.
Impulse True Love body spray is available at bigger supermarkets and pharmacists, but if currently on offer at Superdrug, and costs 95p, and usually costs around £1-£1.99 for a 75ml can.
Impulse: True Love was the most recent of my Impulse acquisitions, and is a bit of a disappointment. I bought it, thinking that it might smell similar to Temptation, but its really a different kind of scent altogether.
The scent is very light, very sweet and very feminine. It has a few powdery light scents at the top, and then some citrus-y types in the middle, but it doesn't really smell anything more than sweet after that. Having said that, its quite nice during the spring, because it's so light, it really suits the new beginnings, fresh sort of feeling that springs brings. Unfortunately, in my experience, it doesn't tend to wear very well, and disappears in the first couple of hours if it isn't topped up.
I would suggest this to people (mostly girls, I don't think the boys will enjoy this one) who like lighter, airy scents, and to anybody whom enjoys springtime, and the first few flowers which pop up.
The packaging is white, with red, pink and purple balloon-type hearts crammed into the Impulse logo butterfly. This suits the light, floating-away type of perfume it is selling. The nozzle and swivel cap are white, and easy to use.
I always use Body Sprays. At least twice a day - sometimes a bit more, and although i do have my favourite scents, there is ones I try because i've not tried them before, or ones that I like, but they aren't my favourite.
I would say that the Impulse range is my favourite range. Although it is expensive at a cost of between £1.7-£2.20 per 75ml tin then I wait until they are on offer and stock up. There is often an offer on Asda at a price of £1 per tin, and that does me fine. This is the scent I am currently using.
The tin doesn't look like the Dooyoo picture. I think this is how it used to look but now it is a very light pink colour with a pink heart on the front. The heart isn't a solid pink, it is dots of pink in a heart shape. The tin is sort of thin and tall enough. This has a twist lid, so you twist it one way to lock it and close, and the other way to use the spray.
The spray comes out in quite a fine mist but gives good coverage. it seems to spread well enough as well.
The scent is nice enough, but it isn't quite the scent I would usually go for. This is a mix of Freesia, Amber and Muguet. It smells very floral and slightly powdery scent and I prefer a more fresh airy scent and perhaps a citrus scent.
For it being a floral scent it is quite fresh smelling as well, It isn't overpowering and although you can smell it ok and it lasts for a good while afterwards it is quite nice especially when it settles down.
Yes, not my favourite but a spray I will buy now and again.
