Ghost Eau de Toilette
Advantages: smells beautiful, nice bottle, long lasting, reasonably priced
My sister spoilt me this Christmas (as usual) and one of the gifts that she bought me was a Ghost fragrance gift set, which has a body lotion and a 30ml bottle of the eau de toilette in it.
I was aware of the fragrance and had seen it in the shops, but had never tried it before.
~ Bottle ~
The bottle is instantly recognisable as Ghost.
It is made from frosted glass and is cylindrical, but it tapers near the bottom of the bottle and then gets wider at the base.
The word 'GHOST' is written in silver lettering at the very bottom of the bottle. The fragrance is a clear liquid and colourless, not how some websites show it as a blue liquid.
The lid is a matte silver colour and it is cylindrical. It has a hole in the middle and it sits around the spray button on the top of the bottle rather than going over the top of it and completely covering it.
The top of the lid and the spray button are made from shiny silver metal.
~ Scent ~
This scent is gorgeous.
The top notes are rose and jasmine.
The heart notes are amber, vanilla and peach.
The base notes are sandalwood and musk.
I find this a very difficult scent to describe. I can pick out the rose, vanilla and sandalwood. It has a fresh fruitiness that I wouldn't be able to pick out as peach in particular.
The woody base is actually one of the most easily detected woody notes that I have been able to pick out in any fragrance, but the floral note of rose is very present in the fragrance as well.
It is a really interesting combination of notes and I really love it!
Although it is quite a woody scent, it is still very feminine with its pretty floral notes.
I have only worn this fragrance once as I received 5 perfumes for Christmas this year and was eager to try them all.
I found that it is very long lasting and has good sillage, even though it is an eau de toilette rather than an eau de parfum. It was still evident a good 12 hours after application.
I don't think you can get this as an eau de parfum, but this eau de toilette does the job well enough.
I am absolutely thrilled with this fragrance and I am considering promoting it to being my signature scent.
~ Price and availability ~
A quick check online tells me that a 30ml bottle of Ghost eau de toilette will cost you £21.94 with a recommended retail price of £25.00 from www.cheapsmells.com.
A 50ml bottle is £26.30 (RRP £32.50) on cheapsmells.com.
A 100ml bottle is £35.95 (RRP £44.50) on cheapsmells.com.
The fragrance is also available from Boots, Superdrug, Amazon, The Perfume Shop, Argos, Debenhams and many more stores and online shops.
~ Conclusion ~
I really love this scent. It is absolutely gorgeous.
I will definitely buy another bottle of this fragrance once I have used mine up, but until then I will savour every drop.
It has great sillage and is very long lasting.
I would definitely recommend it either for yourself or as a gift. I was certainly thrilled to receive this.
I urge anyone who has not tried this to try it out. There would be no harm in trying out one of the testers next time you're in Boots.
