So...? Superstar Body Spray
Advantages: Is refreshing and fragrance is charming.
Disadvantages: A little bit weak and not long lasting.
I was doing some shopping on a boiling hot day recently and saw this So Superstar body spray on offer for only 79p, reduced from £1.50. I wanted to freshen up on the go so bought this without ever having tried it before or trying the tester on the shelf. I frequently use body sprays as I find that they are the most convenient way of creating a pleasant perfume on my body and clothes. They are also a cheap solution to freshening up when you feel a bit hot and sweaty on summer days. I don't stick to any particular brand but I do favour the Charlie range. I have always thought of the 'So' range as being aimed at teens rather than adults, but for the price I thought I'd take the chance on this.
The product comes in a metal pressurised canister which is 75ml or 48g (2.5 fluid ounces) in size. The can is slim and lightweight so perfect for carrying in a handbag or luggage. The design of the can is quite dramatic and sensual. The can is black and covered in what look like the pink glare of spotlights. It looks like a scene from the X-Factor! The top is gold which makes this look quite sophisticated and indulgent. The can has a large hard plastic button at the top. It's easy to depress this to eject the spray. The spray comes out in a very fine jet stream of mist. You can hold the can about ten inches away to apply it evenly.
This product is a body fragrance only and therefore it offers no protection from perspiration as an anti-perspirant would. I always use these types of products on my whole body from the neck down as well as on my clothes. You can apply this to your clothing without it causing any stains. The mist feels cool and calm on the skin. It feels quite refreshing on a hot day to spray this on my chest and feet and the back of my neck!
I wasn't sure what to expect with this fragrance but the name of the product is usually a good indication of the kind of power and notes involved. So I imagined, with a name like 'Superstar' that this might be a rather bold perfume. It's actually not as 'in-your'face' as I expected and the brand seems to have taken inspiration from the riches and elegance of fame rather than from the egos, breath taking talents and/or brashness that perpetuate celebrity and fame in the first place.
The perfume smells like sparkling lemonade, champagne and daisies with a cool amber undertone which gives it a more 'grown up' feel. It's not too sweet nor does it weigh heavily towards any notes that might be tend towards a more personal taste. I therefore would suggest this is a fragrance that could appeal to all ages of women and all personalities too. It is a little too weak and quick to dissipate though. That which lingers is quite understated but very elegant and ladylike. It's a nice fragrance but not distinctive or particularly memorable.
I would definitely buy this again although this hasn't been a body fragrance that has really stood out for me among all of the similar products I've used lately. It is effective though and it does have a charming if understated scent which is suitable enough for me and what I require from the product. I would recommend this to friends as I think women of any age could appreciate this.
Summary: Quite nice, not a memorable scent but good nontheless.
