Wilko Passion Body Spray
Please note: The design has changed from that of the Dooyoo image
I have never been one of those people who prefer to spend more on an item thinking that it is much better than a cheaper version, and so I have always been happy to try unbranded, shop own items from a variety of shops including Wilkinsons.
One thing with body sprays that I have always noticed is that they run out fast in our house and so purchasing a body spray for cheaper is much more worth our time and money as we can buy more for much less. This particular body spray is only £0.49p for a 75ml spray bottle.
There are a number of different Wilkinson own body sprays, and none I have really disliked. For their full range, visit in store or check their website.
The bottle is quite appealing in itself and certainly does not look like a cheap brand with its silver and pink colouring in a lovely swirl design. It is described on the bottle as 'our coolest, most delicate fragrance - it will keep you feeling fresh and feminine all day long'. So does it deliver what it promises?
This certainly has a lovely fresh smell that reminds me a lot of a delicate flowery perfume. When first spraying the body spray, I did find it a little overwhelming and my little one did not stop coughing (although a little over-dramatically I do admit!), though it is true to say that the mist created by the spray was a little over the top! Suffice to say, you do not need to spray too much at one time! After the mist has settles, though, the fragrance is no longer overwhelming, and instead sits on your body lightly, allowing a smooth, delicate fragrance to emit from the skin.
As for it stating that it will 'keep you fresh all day long' I would not consider this to be accurate. After an hour or so, especially on hot days, you will find that you need a top up as the fragrance has vanished, though to be honest at this price, I am not surprised and I would probably top up nearly that much anyway!
One other thing I feel worth a mention is that this body spray does not leave any white or greasy marks and so is suitable for clothing. Where clothing is concerned, I feel the fragrance lasts longer than when on the skin.
Fully recommended even with the short lasting ability.
I bought this spray as part of a 3-piece offer in Wilko's, and I am currently working my way through all the Wilko Body Sprays!
~Packaging and Appearance~
Wilko's Body Spray in Passion is currently sold in a matt white cylinder-shaped aerosol can. The can is decorated with a pink heart with waves inside it. The whole can is really girly, which I love! The Wilko logo is also printed on the can in pink and Wilko claims that this spray is 'cool and delicate'. I usually quite like light, delicate sprays so I hoped this lived up to my expectations!
Like all body sprays, just press the nozzle to spray the perfume. It comes out very quickly in a fine mist, and isn't too damp and the moisture evaporates quickly, leaving just the scent. The scent, however, is nice but not delicate at all - it's incredibly zesty and smells like Wilko have stuffed a loads of citrus fruit skins inside! But it really gets me awake in the morning because of this and it is a very fresh scent indeed. The lasting scent on my body was average for a body spray - about half a day. The aerosol can is very compact, so you will be able to carry it around with you with ease if you need to re-apply the spray. The can also lasts for a good few months, so you won't need to buy any more spray for a while.
Like all sprays in the Wilko range, Passion costs just 48p without offers, which is very good value.
I bought this body spray when I was in wilkinson store once, and I was running out of perfume and I go for body spray for a change and I had very little money as well - which isn't always a good thing! i think I was in need for saving money at the time i bought it! Also it was only forty seven pence (less than fifty pence - how good is that?) There was an offer of three wilko brand body sprays for less than one pound (around ninety seven pence) So I bought two more (can't remember which ones though)
I first tried the product when I first bought it and I liked the smell, it wasn't too strong but it was a little weak, so you couldn't smell much and you need to keep re-spraying at times - which was a little annoying as it ran out quickly - but it was a cheap so it wasn't like I was wasting any money! But I used it almost every day and it ran out within two weeks!
the product smells of fresh floral such as blossom or jasmine, rather than fruity or citrus.
I may buy this product again, I may not it depends what money situation I'm in! When I go to university in September I probably will be buying brand body spray cause of limited money having to last! But it is a good change from perfume to body spray, but however brand body spray smells tend to be weaker than brands such as impulse or Charlie, so sometimes its worth buying more to get better quality and value out of products.
But however, it is a good price so it's worth trying..you mat have a passion for this or you may not. You decide!
Recently I have been converted to trying out lots of new body sprays because I like to have something on me that makes me smell nice without being as overpowering as perfume as they disapprove of perfume wearing at work which is a bit annoying to be honest as I have lots of lovely perfumes.
When browsing in Wilkinsons a couple of weeks ago I spotted a nice range of body sprays that were 49p each or 2 for 87p and so I decided to snap up 2 body sprays (2 different ones of course!) and save myself a few pennies on purchases that I would no doubt be making again in the future.
This body spray is quite feminine to look at with a nice, thin spray can that is decorated with a lovely heart and is all pink and white and generally just very girlie looking. The bottle contains all the usual information such as company information, ingredients, safety warnings etc (no naked flames please). There is nothing special about the packaging but it is definitely distinguishable as a woman's product so there is no excuse for confusion in the bathroom!
The spray is emitted in short, sharp bursts when pressed down (like all aerosols really) and as soon as sprayed there is a lovely, fresh, feminine scent. Once the initial scent has gone away there is a fresh, perfume kind of scent left behind that is not overpowering and is just light enough to make me feel lovely and fresh and feminine. The spray is one that I have been complimented on a few times recently and it lasts for a fair few hours. While this is not as long lasting as some other ones I have used in the past this is probably because the scent is not ridiculously thick and strong.
I suffer from sensitive skin but this spray works fine for me and doesn't cause me any irritation or a rash of any kind. I have been using this and some of the other body sprays in the range for a few weeks now and I've not had any problems at all.
The quality of this spray is good considering it is available for such a bargain price. The scent is not too strong and is just light enough to last for a few hours and to keep me smelling clean and fresh. A simple burst of this on clothing is enough to get rid of any bad odours like tobacco (I'm not a smoker but stay with one sometimes) and there really is nothing bad that I can say about this. I like the scent as it's lovely and feminine and I am sure that this one is going to be one of the ones that I seek out next time I am looking for a body spray.
The price is very reasonable and I thought it might be a bit of a nasty scent but I have been left pleasantly surprised by the good quality of this and how even with twice daily use this has lasted for a few weeks and for just 49p each (or 2 for 87p) it's an absolute bargain and the ideal size to be squeezed in to my toiletries bag.
I do wish that the scent would last a little longer than it does but if you are looking for a fairly good burst of spray that will last for a couple of hours then don't splash out on expensive sprays give this one, and the others in the Wilkinsons range, a go today!
I'm not feeling the credit crunch...yet! I'm not an economy drive as such. Though I have pulled my horns in because it's Christmas! I'm trying to make savings 'cos most of my pennies are going on Christmas presents for other people that realistically no one wants anyway lol
I adore body spray and own plenty of bottles of the stuff as I never want to run out lol. Which means I can't really justify buying any more at the minute....unless they are cheap and these Wilkinson one's at 49p a bottle (or can if you want to pedantic about it) are just that.
Me I like a lot of choice in my life. I like plenty of stuff and this includes fragrances of any kind. With body spray I don't care what brand it is or anything as long as it smells pleasant and isn't sticky or heavy feeling. I'm not a snob when it comes to things like this.
Using body spray to me is like a habit. From buying it to using it! Most when you start to think about it aren't all that great. You spray them and job done but the smell vanishes quick smart but it's ok you don't give it another thought really. I mean it's not like your relying on it for anything like that and it's not so important as antiperspirant or perfume. For me body spray is instant freshness in a can and that's it!
I do love Wilkinsons. It's a shop I like to browse in and I do find a good selection of toiletries in my local store at great prices and the one thing I do like to buy of course is these body-sprays. I find with their tiny price tag, pleasant smells that they're a bit of a bargain so what I normally do is buy myself 2-3 branded one's a week and a couple of these as well to 'top up'. (Hence why I have a lot of reviews on body spray of late lol).
A 75ml recyclable, aluminum cylinder, long, tall white and light pink can with a light pink plastic push on, pull off lid that covers a white aerosol sprayer. On the front there is a drawing on a light pink heart and I'm told it is 'Quality Wilko brand' and that the fragrance is 'Passion'. On the the bottom of the can in small black writing I'm told it's a cool, delicate Body Spray. On the back all in light pink writing I'm told a bit about the product, directions for use, ingredients are listed, cautions are given, a cash back promise is given by the store (if your not happy with the product a refund will be given for any reason), size is stated (as listed already), the recycle symbol is shown, contact details for Wilkinson's is given and finally there is a bar-code. Nice enough packaging!
Easy peasy cos it's a simple body spray lol I use it as an all over body fragrance or as just a body spray depending on my mood.
Smell wise this one is really nice, young and girly. It's lightly and delicately floral and not one bit heavy or overpowering even when you are just spraying it. To me it has an aroma of rose about it but it simply smells of delicate sweet flowers really. Nothing really distinctive about it at all. It isn't zesty with a top note of any kind it's just a nice and a gentle sweet mix of smells that is very well blended.
It's o delicate though that once you've applied it on the body the smell doesn't hang around on the skin above an hour no matter how much you spray on yourself you can't make this last any longer. However at this price I feel it's not really a problem to top it up!
On the upside of things though this is incredibly easy and fuss free to use. I apply it at arms length to get a nice even coverage and it's none stinging or agitating. It sprays on cool and a fine mist and not one bit wet, drippy or anything. It's also suitable to spray lightly on clothes if you desire without coating things in a residue.
If you like the smell it's nice enough the only problem being that the fragrance doesn't hang about for very long but having said that though I do feel fresh using this and I like it's none sticky and freshening qualities. It does give instant fragrance and is an instant pick me up. Nice enough but could do with staying with me a bit longer!
Only available in Wilkinsons.
