I bought this perfume set from my local body care shop and it was only £4.99?! you might think because its cheap that it will be crap but honestly its not - I love this perfume and the scent is so fresh and very girly. The bottle is big - too big to put in a bag but never mind. The lid doesn't stay on too well but that really doesn't bother me and if you pull the plastic too hard it would snap. I have watched every single episode and movie from Sex in the City and always been a fan so when I saw this for sale I just had to buy it. I keep a bottle on my desk at work and use it daily when I want to freshen up and had many compliments on it. It comes in a box with shower gel and body lotion if you use a decent amount they will last you a while.
I too ordered this for Christmas last year, extremely excited and expected very seductive perfumes at a very affordable price, I couldn't have been more wrong! The perfumes all smelt the same after claiming each had a different effect and a different scent. The only thing that was nice with this was the box. But as for the perfumes they smell terrible and only suitable as room fresheners or clothes freshener but another more high quality perfume would have to mask the smell. Personally advertising these scents as SATC, I could not imagine that any of the girls would wear these terrible perfumes. I wouldn't expect anyone to wear these. I have resulted in using the perfumes as room fresheners, the keyring I gave to my niece and the body lotions I use on my partner for massages but only before he washes it off in the shower. And also with the body lotions care must be taken as because they too are highly scented with the terrible perfume it can sting if it enters cuts and abrasions.
I asked for this as a Christmas gift last year, but wish I hadn't. As I was a big fan of SATC I thought it has got to be a really good perfume for them to but their name to it; but how wrong I was. You expect something chic and fruity but the smell was rather offputting woody and oaky. I also had problems with the dispenser as the top kept on falling off when pressing it. However, in the SATC Love Gift Set given to me at the same time was much more pleasing and pleasant smell. I did have the same problem with the dispenser but I perservered with it. I have told family and friends not to buy me any SATC products this year and really when the think of the price you wonder if I am not the only person who doesn't like this particular product.
This little set is great value for money and can be bought from Amazon for £10.99 but if you shop around online there's always a better bargain to be found and at cheapsmells.com this will cost you only £4.99 but you have to keep looking as it's not always in stock.
The set can be got in the Kiss range of the Lust range for the same price.
What you get for your money is a Lust au de parfume 100ml, a shower gel and a bath gel 200 ml, a bottle of body lotion 200ml and a mini spray that fits in your make-up bag or handbag.
I think this is reat value for money and it makes a lovely present for a birthday or for Christmas as it comes in a nice presentable box.
The scent is quite a floral one so it's nice and fresh and can be worn during the day and for every occassion.
You it's not too over powering and the scent lingers ont he skin after using.
I like the body lotion too as after a shower you can apply it and it leaves the skin feeling soft and smooth and sinks in fast without leaving the skin feeling greasy.
I have sensative skin and this has been alright for me to use.
I like the mini spray as I can take it out with me in my handbag so I can re-apply it when I need to.
Although these are all small tubes and bottles I like the variety of the choice in the pack. They lasted me about a while and I will be buying this again and can recommend them to you.
If you are looking for a light floral parfume then this is a nice one to use.
The shower gel and the bath gel didn't last long but it's nice to get a variety in a pack and the eau de parfume is still going strong after three months of my purchase but I don't werar it everyday, but I'm glad to have bought it.
This is something I will be buying for my neices for Christmas as it is a scent all ages can wear and it's affordable.
I was given this set for last christmas by my best friend. I hate the tv show and the stupid SJP person BUT when i first received this set i loved the smell, it was different to others i have and i loved the little travel bottle as well. but then as i started to wear the perfumes i soon became sick of the smell of it. im not sure why but i ended up finding it quite a sickly smell and now i dont use it.
The body lotion as a moisturiser is good and made my skin soft with a subtle hint of the perfume scent. i would recommend wearing the items seperatly and not layering the scent with the body lotion and the perfume otherwise it becomes sickly. I do love the packaging and it makes a nice gift for a girl especially if they are a fan of that awful tv show!
hi.... i got this as a present for Christmas... i absolutely love the tv show.... but if you want my honest opinion the perfume is not that great... i think when you first spray it, it can be very overpowering and then all of a sudden the smell will just disappear you would have to keep spraying yourself 10 times a day to keep the smell on you..... however the body lotion is fantastic... i use this all the time as the smell is amazing after you have a bath or a shower... it has a lovely fruity smell and your skin feels lovely afterwards.... so what im trying to say invest in the body lotions but not the perfume ladies it was a major disappointment to me... because like i said before i am a major fan of the tv series... well fingers crossed they bring out a better perfume x
I'm not actually a fan of the tv show but the gift set was given as a present, I have all three of the sets so I can give a fair opinion from this compared to the other two.
It can be bought for £7.99 in semi-chem for the gift set, the set Love can also be bought there for the same price but Kiss cant.
It contains a big bottle of perfume, a small tube of perfume, body lotion and shower gel.
The main bottle is 100ml, a very light purple colour with Sex In The City at the front in small black letters and Lust in the background so coming through the bottle. The liquid is clear so easy to see the amount inside with metal around the top with small holes in it with metal lid and purple plastic coming out in ovals a the side.
The smaller perfume is a long tube, it is a light purple colour and metal lid.
Body lotion and shower gel are both white tubes, purple picture of the buildings up the side and the name on the top and are 200ml bottles, they stand with the lid at the bottom which is purple.
It smells quite flowery but also quite strong, not in a good way as its quite off putting but this is only when you smell it say on your wrist unless you apply lots all over.
The scent lasts for hours when applied which is good to wear during the day, after a while it does stop smelling as strong which is good.
The body lotion and shower gel are not as strong but are still fragranced with the floral scents and smell very nice.
It is not the best out of the gift sets, the best one is Kiss which is priced at the same price but cannot be bought in semi-chem, available at Savers.
The bottle could look a lot better and more eye catching.
Its cheap and certainly smells it so I will be using this as a stand by perfume as its not awful to use but for the price of the gift set I cant complain too much.
I would not recommend you give this as a gift
My mother in law is a huge fan of the Sex In The City tv show, and for Christmas, we had already bought her the SITC 2 dvd, and we were strolling through town when we spotted these SITC fragrance box sets. Thinking it would be a nice gift set to go with her DVD, and the fact they were on sale for £10, we decided to have a closer look.
There were 3 different coloured sets, a pink, green, and purple. I let my husband choose, and he went for a pruple one, which was a Lust set. The set compromised of a large bottle of the Lust gragrance, as well as a mini bottle, plus 2 handbag sized spritzer bottles, one of Love (the pink fragrance) and one of Kiss (the green one) It also came with a tube of Lust scented body lotion.
As the top sets had been opened, my husband aimed for a set lower down in the pile. As we paid, we were warned that Savers do not accept returns on their fragrances - we should have picked up on this there and then...
When we got home, we had a fair few bags of Christmas presents to unload and a school run to rush off to do, she the set was just added to the hidden stash of presents where it escaped from mind.
It wasnt until a few days later when I decided I needed to get some wrapping done, that I checked over the set.
The large bottle of Lust perfume was fine, although to be honest, the large bottle is rather ugly looking, its a big chunky design, and the lid is horrible and weird looking! The mini bottle is the same design - but to my shock, it was empty!! I then pulled out the handbag spritzer bottles. The green one, Kiss, looked only 3 quarters full, and the pink Love bottle, was totally empty bar about 3 drops in the bottom! I was gutted, and there was no way we could give that as a present.
My husband was really cross, and took it back to the shop, demanding he wanted to switch it for a set that was full, but he got nowhere as they said we should have checked it, and we were warned they wouldnt accept returns. Hindsight is a wonderful thing.
Since then, the sets been chucked on my dresser taking up space, when a few days ago I decided I may as well use what was left of the perfumes rather than have it wasting space.
Theres nothing on the box or bottles to hint at what these smell like, (and I am googling to give you an idea but I just cant find anything!) but I tried the big bottle of Lust first. After removing the big ugly lid, I gave a quick spritz on my wrist. Straight away I thought it was very strong, and heavy, not a smell for me at all. I like my fragrances light and sweet, but this was just the opposite and smelt quite musky, and I hate musky smells! To give it the benefit of the doubt, I added a few spitz's to my neck and thought I would test it out. Eventually the fragrance wore down and wasnt quite so overpowering, and give it its due, the scent was still there in the evening, so thumbs up to the fact it didnt disappear after a few hours.
Its definately not a perfume I would wear everyday, though, maybe once every now and then for a change.
The next day, I gave the Kiss (green bottle) a go, and after the strength of the Lust, I was wary and just sprayed a tiny amount on my wrist! I shouldnt have worried, this one was much more to my taste, not so overpowering, light enough to wear subtly every day, but sweet enough that I can wear it a bit heavier in the evenings. Again, this fragrance is great for its longevity, I spray in the mornings and it its still there in the evenings. Once I use this mini bottle up, Im going to go and buy a bottle of the Kiss one.
I cant comment on the Love perfume, I couldnt even manage to squeeze one small spritz out of its empty bottle - so the only thing I can say about it is that the colour of the bottle was nice?!?!
This would have made a really nice gift set and the fragrances, especially for £10, are more than worth the money, and the effort has been put in well to the presentation box has come in, we were just really let down by thw empty bottles, so if anyone does buy one of these gift sets, dont forget to check ALL the bottles in it to make sure they are full!!!
