I bought this after receiving a free sample of the matching cologne which both my husband and I really liked.
The bottle is clear, very slim and square shaped with Prada on the bottom right hand corner and a silver coloured twist off top. It is made of plastic which will make it less slippery when using in the shower.
On removing the top the first thing I smell is the same scent of the cologne but not as strong. There is a slightly soapy tinge but I would expect that with a bodywash after all it does have to clean you as well as make you smell nice. I can smell a hint of patchouli and also detect a slight minty tone. I would imagine this is Myrhh. It's not strong like toothpaste mint but it reminds me of the cold freshness of a winters day but warmed with soft sensual spices.
The ingredients it contains are:
Amber blended with Labdanum
Neroli and Cardamom
Balsamic saffron and Sandalwood oils
Whew ! long list but all I know is it smells lovely
The gel itself is a pale lilac / grey colour and has a consistency I would liken to jelly just as it starts to set kind of gloopy if you know what I mean. My husband says he uses about a half a teaspoon of the gel and that is ample to get a good lather up for an all over wash.
" This gel has a smooth silky feel to it which I like. It is refreshing and makes my skin feel smoother. The smell is a proper mens perfume and not like a car air freshner like most of them are!!!"
He doesn't have particularly sensitive skin but has been known to feel irritated by the odd product but not with this. He has used it most nights since he got it so if he was going to have a problem it would have surfaced by now.
The fragrence lasts on him for an hour or two after he has showered and lingers on his clothes until they are washed ( or until he climbs under a car engine and gets covered in grease and oil!)
I'm sure I bought this for £19.99 from fragrencenet but when I checked the site today I couldn't find it Seems a bit pricey but as a little goes along way it's not that bad. With it being used most days since Christmas he is only just coming to the end of it now so really it has lasted nearly a year.
It isn't often I like a mans fragrence but this one I do and I would recommend you give it a try.
I have just ordered some of this for Christamas and I paid £17.95 + 95p P&P from cheapsmells.com so it's actually cheaper than it was last year
Thanks for reading
