“ Brand: So...? Fragrance / Gender: Female / Type: Body Spray / Suitable for: Body „
I like to use body sprays on a regular basis and although I have my favourite fragrances and brands I also like to try new products. When I was shopping recently I was noticed this So 'Fab' body fragrance which I'd never used before. It stood out to me because it was the most pretty and eye catching packaging on the shelf! I've used other products in the So range so I was happy to trust the brand and try this new product.
As I mentioned the packaging design on this body spray is extremely pretty. The metal aerosol canister, which holds 75mls or 2.5 Fl. Oz of liquid, is a bright purple colour. A pink and red butterfly carrying a ribbon which reads "Fulfil your destiny" adorns the front of the can. Above this is a picture of a party of girls in silhouette. They look like they are all striking confident, fun poses. They seem to represent the kind of girl or woman who might enjoy this product. The bottle is lightweight and easy to conceal in a handbag for use on the go. It's top is protected with a plastic cover which fits snugly over the dispensing button. The button to spray is broad and easily to push down.
The brand describe the So collection as being "fragrance with attitude" and this particular fragrance is described as being a "floral woody musk" which is predominantly "spicy". When you press the dispensing button the body fragrance is released as a fine jet of cool mist. I recommend holding at a distance of 10 inches away from point of application for best coverage over the skin. The mist has a cooling effect on the skin which is refreshing.
The fragrance is very intoxicating and all pervading. It is not one of those scents that choke you because of it's strength but it is very bold on my person and it lingers in the air too. If I use this product in a bedroom, for instance, I can still smell it in the room for hours afterwards, when I return to the room after being away. When I wear this body fragrance, either on my skin or sprayed over my clothes to freshen up, people notice the fragrance and comment on it. This being a body fragrance it has no anti-perspirant qualities but it can freshen you up and keep you smelling good all day.
The brand state that this fragrance contains notes of "Bergamot, Freesia, Petals of Jasmine, Cedarwood, Praline, Vanilla Beans [and] Musks". I would describe the fragrance as being playful and exciting. It's top notes seem to dance with energy and are sharp and confident. It smells sweet and reminds me of jelly sweets and very sugary fruit drinks like grape or cherry juice. There is also a warm spicy heart to the fragrance which is heady and comforting. It gives the fragrance maturity, complexity and strength.
I would describe this fragrance as being suitable for use during any season. I also think women of any age would enjoy this. I'm mid thirties and am probably a lot older than the age target for this product but I really love it and feel that it is of a high quality and reflective of my personality and taste. The fragrance is long lasting and it really transforms how I feel in terms of being confident about smelling my best when I go out! It's a great body fragrance to make a statement with and I think it's as noticeable and present as an eau de toilette. If you want to double up though you can also buy this scent as a perfume too!
I would definitely recommend this to ladies who like using body fragrances as this one has a great fragrance which ticks all the right boxes. It's a beautiful scent, noticeable to you and to other people and it lasts a long time. I will certainly be getting this So Fab again!.
You can find this product at places like chemist chains and some supermarkets. I bought mine from a factory shop and it was £1 but prices can vary.

Today I'd like to tell you all about the Fab body fragrance by So..?.
I have been using deodorant sprays by So..? for many years no. It all started with the Sensual variety and the Kiss me one. The simply smell good, work well against sweat and have pretty bottle at an affordable price! As times goes on, special editions and new varieties come out and I always try to test them all. There hasn't been a single So..? fragrance I didn't like, so I never felt like I was risking anything when I bought them!
This one comes in a purple bottle with an old school tattoo design of a pink butterfly. "Fulfil your destiny" is written across the picture and the brandname and the body spray's name are given above the picture. At the top of the bottle, just below the cap, you also see the silhouettes of pretty slim girls dancing. Below the butterfly picture, the product is described as a "body fragrance" and it is stated that the bottle contains 75ml.
The bottle's cap is made of clear plastic. The spraying bit of the bottle works well and makes the fragrance easy to dose.
On the back of the bottle, the brand's slogan "Fragrance with Attitude" is given. There is no further description of the product or it's scent. The ingredients and the usual safety instructions are listed in various languages. The product was made in the UK and you can find out more on www.sofragrance.com.
I really liked this bottle design and thought it was cute, but I was a bit surprised that neither the name nor any kind of description told you what the fragrance would smell like. Odd!
I ended up being really happy with this deodorant although I was a bit warry of the fact that the smell wasn't described at all on any part of the bottle.
However, I did end up loving the scent! This body spray smells like vanilla with an elegant edge, making it classier than your average super-sweet body spray. The smell mixes well with perfume you might want to put on, even though the body spray's smell is quite strong and unique.
I felt really refreshed by this deodorant. It helped me well when I got sweaty and wanted to feel save and fresh. It doesn't stain your clothes, so you can put it both on your skin or your garments.
I've been using deodorant extensively lately because I have been sweating a lot, so this bottle only lasted me two weeks, but I have been using it several times a day. If you use it once or twice a day, it will probably last you a month!
My skin coped well with it, but of course you shouldn't spray it under freshly shaved armpits or it will sting. Allergics and very sensitive people should check the ingredients before buying.
Alcohol Denat. (Alcool Denature), Butane, Isobutane, Propane, Aqua (Water, Eau), Parfum (Fragrance), Propylene Glycol (Propylene Glycolique).
You can find this body fragrance at Superdrug and most of the time it is on offer for just £0.99.
I love this body spray! The bottle looks pretty, the scent is great and covers up sweat and it lasts you a while. The price also is quite reasonable, so what more could you want? :)
It is normally Impulse Body Spray that I buy. It is my favourite brand of Body Sprays and I always stock up when it is on offer. I do still like to try other ones out there for comparison and when I was running low on Impulse and no offer on at Asda at the time I picked up a few tins of So Body Spray as it was on offer for £1. I used to love So Perfume when I was a young teenager and I find that some of the Body sprays from the range are pretty nice smelling. I think this normally sells for around the £1.80 mark for the 75ml tin.
The tin looks like the picture on here. An ok looking tin I would say and easy enough to hold and squirt. Although this tin has a lid on it which a lot of sprays don't have lids and opt for the twist to the 1 side to spray and twist the other way to squirt I found that the lid stayed on secure enough when in my bag and didn't pop off.
When I first sprayed this I was able to tell that this is a pretty strong smelling scent. The So range does seem to be quite heavily Perfumed but I just didn't spray quite as much of this as I would perhaps another brand. I really wasn't keen on the scent at first, but when it faded a little then I found it to be better but still not quite the scent that I would go for. The scent of this is a heavy Musky kind of scent which does seem to have a hint of Vanilla Sweetness through it. After reading another review about this it states that this has Lily through it. I can't say that I can smell the Lily but there does seem to be a powdery white Floral kind of scent through this and I would assume that is the Lily to my untrained nose (i've never really liked the scent of Lily after my gran used to always smell like Yardley's Lily of the Valley). It is just too strong and heavy a scent for me.
I didn't even finish my tin of this and threw it out after using this a few times.
Perhaps worth a try if you like heavy scented sprays but not 1 that I will be buying again.
I make absolutely clear from the start of this review that I am crazy about So...? body fragrances usually and the perfumes and have been for years. So when I spotted a new range of the body fragrances I bought one of each in my local Asda store (there was three new out body sprays at the time) and on offer at a pound a spray I was delighted.
The can is tall and cylinder and purple in colour with a push button aerosol sprayer to the top of it and a see-through safety that lid that securely covers that. On the front of the can there is a picture of a pink butterfly designed a bit like a tattoo with 'Fulfil your destiny' written on it and then we are told that it is So...? 'Fab' Body Fragrance and that it is 75ml in size. On the back of the can other information listed includes ingredients and warnings being given and contact details for So...?. Nice, young and funky looking can this is and easy to use with a slight indentation to help with ease of handling towards the top of the can.
The Body Spray Itself:
Well to use this you simply point it at arms lengths away from your body and spray away! It comes out fairly damp but it dries quickly leaving no residue behind it at all and you can't feel it on the skin at all either.
Scent wise this is really, really strong and sweet and lingers on clothes and skin all day long....and beyond which is great if you like really strong scents and for that reason if you want to you could double this up and wear it as perfume if desired.
The scent is a heady and slightly harsh blend (it always makes me cough when I spray this!) of vanilla in the main with top notes of Lilly and then a musky aroma. For me its rather a sickly grown up scent this one and the actually scent is a tad too old fashioned for me and my tastes and actually the scent doesn't match the image the can gives off (being young in its appearance) in my opinion.
Like I said earlier if you like a scent that really is strong and hardworking then this could be for you. For me personally though its too strong and I find if I put this on then then is no point at all wearing perfume too as you can't smell it anyway as this is so overbearing.
Not a fan of this one sadly and I wouldn't purchase it again.....its just not me.
Available in all good supermarkets and chemists etc and if not on offer its about £2.00 a can.
