David Beckham Intimately Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Smells nice and would be best suited for everyday wear.
Disadvantages: Not very strong at all.
Iím not a particular fan of the Beckhams, in fact at certain times all the constant media attention and hype surrounding them does irritate me to the point where I canít actually pick up a magazine without seeing them on the cover and wanting to throw it out the window! When I heard the Beckhams were following the trend of every other celebrity out there and releasing their own fragrances I was quite curious to have a sniff!
The perfume itself actually comes under David Beckhamís name on several websites and is called ďIntimately Beckham For Her.Ē Thereís also a male aftershave which is called ďIntimately Beckham For Him.Ē The range also has another aftershave which is called ďIntense Instinct.Ē The Intimately Beckham range was released back in August 2006 and advertisement started booming for the range as early as June 2006.
The perfume itself comes in a baby pink box with black and gold embossed writing on which creates quite an elegant vision. The bottle itself is made of glass and comes in a rectangular bottle which means it sits easily on any surface, the lid is a smaller reflection of the bottom in that itís a small cube glass lid which makes application quite easy as all you need to do is pull the lid off. Do watch if youíre carrying it around in your bag though!
The perfume itself is a light pink colour which fits in with the theme of the packaging. The scent initially smells quite sweet in the bottle and although it does has a slightly sickly sweet smell it is quite light once youíve actually sprayed it which reduces the sweetness somewhat. Itís quite flowery smelling and is said to contain the scent of white flowers, bergamot and rose petals. There are hints of vanilla and quite a musky element to it as well. I wouldnít describe it as a strong scent, nor would I describe it as particularly seductive but more an everyday sort of smell that would be suitable for all occasions.
After 30 minutes Ė The scent has definitely lessened somewhat and blended in with my skin, itís quite musky smelling and the sweet essence has decreased a lot. It has weakened quite a lot, when I walk past people I like them to get hints of the perfume Iím wearing but with this I would wonder if that happened unless it was excessively applied!
After 4 hours Ė The scent has decreased quite a lot so that itís only very mild now, if I was out (rather than sat around the house in my pajamas!) Iíd probably have reapplied it about an hour ago to ensure it was still obvious. As such itís not a long lasting scent on the skin compared to other perfumes Iíve used in the past.
The prices for this perfume arenít quite as expensive as you might expect, some high street stores do seem to bump up the price a little although I think in this case youíre largely paying for the name. Iíve found that itís cheaper to buy this online with the following sites offering the best prices: -
30ml Ė £12.95
50ml Ė £14.04
75ml Ė £17.54
30ml - £10.99
50ml - £14.99
75ml - £22.99
Just to give you an idea of the high street prices Debenhams offer the three bottles starting at £19.50 and the largest bottle retails at £32.50 so you can get the 70ml bottle almost for half price online at Cheap Smells!
I personally got this perfume as a birthday present after requesting it once Iíd smelt in a store. I havenít actually overly used it if Iím honest, mainly because I prefer some of my other perfumes to it and tend to stick with what I like. I probably wouldnít buy it again as itís a little weak for me and doesnít last long on the skin. Apparently theyíre due to release a new set of fragrances shortly in this range so I shall certainly be sampling that one too!
Thanks for reading!
