Ghost Eau de Toilette
Advantages: lovely smell, nice bottle, good price
I'm not the best at choosing perfumes, never quite know what ones will "suit" me or if they smell good to start with but just get a bit sickly and horrible after a while. I was given this perfume as a christmas gift from my auntie last year, she has a good nose for things and has bough me perfumes before and they have always been lovely.
The ghost perfume comes in a glass bottle around 5 inches tall and contains 30ml of perfume. The glass has a slightly blueish tinge and the bottle looks very stylish. The shape of the bottle is a sort of hourglass figure and has a silver lid with a typical perfume squirty top. The bottle itself comes packaged in a blueish cardboard rectangular box which has "Ghost" written on the front of it. The bottle has "Ghost" written in silver letters at the bottom of the bottle. Although it was a gift I did have a quick look at prices for all you dooyooers, expect to pay around £20-25 for a bottle which I feel is a very reasonable price.
Now comes the hard part, how does it smell, a very difficult thing to describe.....to me it smells lovely and to my auntie I'm sure it smelt lovely too or else she wouldn't have bought it! But I think with any perfume you should smell it before you buy it because something that smells lovely to one person might smell horrible to someone else there's no way to tell if your going to like it without giving it a sniff!
Ok here goes.... I would say the scent of the Ghost perfume is very light and musky, it is not an overpowering smell and as long as you don't put too much on people wont be able to smell you somewhere long after you have been there. The smell seems to have a hint of flowers too it without being too sweet, sickly or cheap smelling. Id say this isnt a very "young" smelling perfume, I'm 26 and it is fine for me, but it might not be to the taste of teenagers or younger people than me, its a tough thing to judge though as everyone has different tastes. The scent lasts well also, if I am wearing it all day I just need one spray of it in the morning and that lasts me the day, if I'm using it for a night out I tend to put a bit more on. I don't were perfume all that often so I reckon this bottle will last me a couple of years but its such a reasonable price that if you are a more heavy user then it is not too expensive to get some more.
I would definitely recommend this perfume, or at least recommend you go out and have a smell of it and see if you like it. It has a great smell, has a nice stylish bottle and is a great price as welll!
Summary: a lovely smelling perfume
