Advantages: None : (
Disadvantages: Expensive, cheap packaging, overly sweet unpleasant smell
I first got this as part of a gift set in its mini 100ml form. However I have since received the large 250ml bottle in another gift set! In Boots the small bottle costs £3.11 and the large bottle costs £6.13. I was pleased that this was in the gift set as I like to use body sprays under my perfume, when I'm around the house and before I go in the gym.
The bottles are plastic and a metallic pink colour with a plastic cap on top which reveals a spray top. The packaging is relatively plain for S&G despite having some black writing on a silver background and the logo near the bottom. Overall I feel the packaging looks quite young and somewhat cheap, especially considering the price of the body spray. I know S&G like to have fun with their packaging and they do usually look quite young, I feel this one looks young in a bad way and reminds me of something I would have had in my room when I was 12!!
The first thing I noticed (before the smell) was the fact that the spray nozzle doesn't work too well, and it wasn't just a faulty bottle as I would say the same about the second bottle I received. This gets worse the more empty the bottle gets and it became almost impossible to spray by the end! It does come out as a mist but is by no means a dry mist, so you need to be careful if spraying onto clothes as it could leave marks particularly on silky materials.
The fragrance is described as being 'flirty floral' and containing notes of bergamot, blackcurrant, magnolia, freesia, vanilla and musk.
The smell of the spray is very fitting with the packaging, it smells very sweet and sickly, but again in a rather cheap way. I find it very difficult to describe the fragrance, but it reminds me slightly of hairspray with sweet notes. I think if you asked an opinion on the smell without telling the person the brand, they would assume it was a much cheaper body spray than it is. The fragrance has nothing in common with the other S&G scents I have experienced which are also sweet but have a luxurious edge.
I think the description of it being 'flirty' is quite apt, and again reminds me of being much younger! However I don't agree that it smells floral, nor could I detect some of the fragrances it supposedly contains such as the vanilla and blackcurrant. I am 25 and feel far too old to be using it, and despite being happy to use cheap body sprays (I regularly use Impulse and Natural Collection) the quality of this one it too cheap for me.
Once it dries there is a slightly musky smell to it which saves it very slightly but it still smells generally poor quality. It does last quite well and I can still smell it throughout the day so this would imply that it is better quality than cheaper body sprays.
I didn't hate it enough to throw it away but stuck to using it around the house, and before I go in the gym. I think younger girls would like this perfume, by young I mean age 10-15 and I feel the product is aiming at this group, however the price is higher than most people of that age would spend, therefore it doesn't seem very well thought out.
I was really disappointed with everything about this body spray, the only positive is that the fragrance holds quite well. Other than that it looks and smells cheap as well despite its expensive price tag. I managed to use it but certainly wouldn't buy it, even if the price was reduced!
