“ Brand: Revlon / Spray / Type: Body Spray / Suitable for: Body „
Anyone who regularly reads my reviews will by now know that I am a body spray junky! I can't seem to help myself! I own and get through loads in a week and that's because I like to think I am fresh and smell nice! I am a smoker so I am a little paranoid as well about nasty niff's and usually have one in a bag tucked somewhere when I'm out and stuff like that. I do like Charlie body fragrances and usually pay around £1.89 a bottle (though do look out for it on offer such as buy one get one free in Wilkinson's etc or buy one get one half price in places like Sainsburys, however me I got mine on special offer last week for a pound in Boots and this week reduced to 50p though it's always worth looking in discount and pound stores and places like that as well!). The Packaging.... Shimmery light lilac, tall slim cylinder can with a matching coloured plastic lid covering the same colour integrated sprayer. On the front of the can in white writing I'm told it is Charlie 'Star' Perfumed Body Fragrance.On the back (this time in small black writing) I'm told a bit about the product, given directions for use, cautions are listed as are ingredients, contact details for Revlon are given (the manufacturers of Charlie products), the recycle symbol and size are displayed (75ml) and finally there is a bar-code on there. Very nice, colour co-ordinated can this is and nice to display as it looks grown up and not one bit cheap and/or tacky! A Bit About The Product According To The Back Of The Can.... Bring out the star in you with Charlie Star! With a sparkling blend of Stargazer Lily and Bamboo, this sophisticated scent will bring out the inner star in every Charlie girl. Directions For Use.... Hold can, 15cm from the body and spray freely all over. Using It.... Well just from the appearance of the can you can tell your going to get something pleasant it just instills confidence and to me the smell goes well with the can (hope that makes sense I know what I mean saying that at least! lol). It sprays onto the body cold but not as a mist and not as a wet liquid either. You can simply feel it on the skin for a couple of seconds and that's that your free to dress immediately and no residue on the skin can be seen or felt at all. Smell wise this is of sweet lilies. Not too sweet and me, well I'm actually allergic to lilies and the smell and although this is called lilies it doesn't smell horrible like the real thing to me! I don't know what bamboo is meant to smell like but it certainly takes the edge of the lilies and grounds the scent a little with a sort of musky hint. Although sweet in fragrance it is naturally so and it is a light, feminine, womanly smell that remains light and airy and very fresh for a little while. However the only draw back with this is that I find the scent doesn't stick around for above an hour on me which means I have to reapply if I want to smell of it... and often at that which makes this not all that economical in my case (unless I got it 50p like today lol). Verdict.... It may not be so long lasting as a few 'Charlie' sprays but the smell is nice and mature and a little bit sexy too! It has a very clean smell to it, isn't in your face and if you like deep fragrances that are quite layered in their approach although still light this could be right up your street! Nice for day times, only for the ladies this is a nice summery fragrance just don't expect it to hang out with you all day long! This review is also posted on Ciao under this same username.
My wonderful husband bought this as my second Charlie this Christmas. Wow....I feel an absolute STAR when I wear it.....who needs diamonds, pearls or rubies when you have new Charlie Star...it makes me glisten and sparkle and I don't have to even have any clothes on (oops, too much information!). I can thoroughly recommend Star as it has the most wonderful Charlie fragrance. It is a beautiful blend of Stargazer Lily and Bamboo (so maybe Panda bears might like it?!) and is gently subtle, musky and fresh and fragrant to spray on first thing in the morning, or getting ready for a night out. It makes you feel as if you are on top of the world. It comes in my favourite colour...purple. The distinctive tall slim sexy Charlie aerosol container is subtly shot through with glistening little scintillations and it has the words NEW! then the inimitable Charlie logo and on the end of the underlining under the logo there is a beautiful little star, then the word STAR writ large. Under the word STAR is a tiny round spotlight and a beautiful shining ray of light emanating from this....down to the base of the front of the can where there are the words PERFUMED BODY FRAGRANCE and under this DEODORANT PARFUM. It comes in 75ml which will last me for about 2 months, if I do not get too carried away, and spray it on four or five times a day and make my work colleagues invest in plenty of clothes pegs! I do tend to over-compensate for my cycling activities by spraying it all over, many times during the day! Still, it's an improvement on the alternative pong......!!! I thoroughly recommend Charlie STAR - you will be the lead in your own film before you know it!!
