Impulse True Love Body Fragrance
Advantages: Lovely scent, lasts hours, kind to skin
Disadvantages: At £1.99 for just 75ml it may seem a little steep for what it is
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
Summary: It's 'True Love' with Impulse
