I love to try different perfumes and especially like ones that are fresh or floral with a fragrance that is not too heavy as they tend to give me headache. I first smelt this a while ago when my mum purchased it and thought it had a really nice fresh and feminine smell so decided to purchase some for myself. It is from a range by Celine Dion, I purchased the 100 ml sized bottle but different sizes are available and it is also available as part of a gift set with matching body lotion, shower gel and/or deodorant body spray. These can also be purchased separately.
The product comes packaged in silver and pink box with the name 'Celine Dion' clearly shown on the front of the box with the perfume name 'sensational' underneath it. At the bottom of the box it gives the bottle size and states that it is an 'eau de toilette vaporisateur spray. The perfume itself is in a clear oval shaped glass bottle. This is great as you can clearly see how much of the product you have used. It has a rectangle shaped clear plastic lid with 'Celine Dion' inscribed on the front and back of the lid and sits on top of the silver and clear plastic pump action spray release.
The perfume itself is pink so it does make the bottle look like it is made from a pink coloured glass. To apply simply remove the plastic lid and gently press down the pump spray to release the fragrance. The actual fragrance is a light sensual floral scent with a fresh smell to it. It includes notes of jasmine, freesia, apple, plum and icy pear plus base notes of amber, musk and sandalwood. Because it is a light fragrance I feel it could be worn for both during the day and the evening. (I use it for both) The product is widely available from beauty/department stores, supermarkets and online. I purchased it from cheapsmells.com at £12.98 for 100ml with free delivery which was the cheapest I could find for that size.
I love tis perfume, it has a really nice fresh, feminine fragrance that lasts for quite a while and is versatile and is a great price too, I definitely recommend this one.
Celine Dion Sensational perfume/eau de Toilette
Who did you say this perfume was created by?
This fragrance by Celine Dion was launched on market in March 2008 in cooperation with Coty Beauty and was created, not by Celine Dion naturally as she is a singer not a perfumery expert, but by famous perfumer Maurice Rousel and it is only her name endorsing the product really
Why did you buy it?
I am not a Celine Dion fan but saw this reduced in a local pharmacy when I was waiting for a prescription for my Homestart family's baby. It was reduced from £20 to below £10 so I tried it and quite liked it as a light summery perfume. It can be described as being in the floral based perfume group.
What attracted you to the box?
The box is pink with Celine Dion in Emanuel Ungaro's beautiful, lacy little silvery white dress photographed by Alexi Lubomirsky. In the background is a subtle face with eyes closed in muted colours which I assume is also the lady in question. She looks young and fresh as well as glamorous and as with all celebrity scents you are supposed to be inspired into thinking you will be as glamorous as Celine should you chose to wear this. That is of course if you are very gullible and taken in by advertisements generally. I usually avoid celebrity endorsed products out of principle because I feel just trying to earn even more money and really do not have anything to do with the creation of the product at all - it is purely a money making but maybe I am just jealous that no one would be interested in buying a perfume with my name endorsing it!
What does it smell like?
The perfume or in my case the eau de Toilette is a very light scent with top notes of pear, apple and plum. Very fruity, light and fresh .The heart of the perfume then has orris root and mimosa combined with floral notes. of jasmine and freesia. Sometime later the base notes of amber, musk and sandalwood develop and give the lasting nature to the perfume or eau de toilette.
What can you buy in this scent?
The eau de toilette is available as 15, 30, 50 and 100 ml and there is also a body care collection in the same smell. My bottle is 50 ml which I paid £9.95 for and I am happy with it at that price but not so sure I would have paid £20 as it was originally.
What does the bottle look like?
The bottle itself is very elegant a sort of flattish oval with the width of the bottle being the widest points sort it is quite squat. The glass effect oblong lid comes off the spray nozzle and has a hole where the nozzle was that you can put your finger right through. It was designed by Jane Tarallo who is the global group creative director for Coty Beauty.
What do I think?
I like the light freshness of the scent it has quite a modern, clear and floral air to it. The fruitiness is pleasant but I would say it is very sweet and more of a day time scent than an evening one. I think this would appeal to a wide age range from young through to the more mature lady like me as it is so fresh smelling and very clean. I would say that it doesn't really develop through to the baser notes and its lasting qualities are not that great either.
I'm not sure that the name 'Sensational' really fits with the scent as I think you would expect something a little more special or unusual and slightly heavier or headier with name like "Sensational" but it is a very light scent and quite forgettable I think. I would not describe this in any way as a sensual fragrance and would not choose this for a night out or to go somewhere very special.
Having said all that this is quite a nice perfume, after all I did choose to buy it so I must have liked it. I chose it specifically for a summer smell and as that I am more than happy with my bargain.

A modern, luminous floral scent. with heart notes of orris and mimosa to reflect Dion's sensual, delicate and vibrant sides. The fragrance also has top notes of icy pear, crisp apple and plum; heart notes including jasmine and freesia, plus base notes of amber, musk and sandalwood.
