Ghost Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Nice mature fragrance
Disadvantages: Not for those who do not like vanilla
This is a great little scent that will not break the bank, I paid £38.99 for a 100ml bottle so you get a lot of perfume for your money, you can also get this in a 50ml and 30ml bottle as well but these while cheaper do not work out as such good value.
I like the sleek design of this eau de toilette bottle, nice curved lines that taper in from a wide base to then flare out again towards the top of the bottle, it is a slim but tall bottle and is made from frosted glass to give it a ghostly feel. The silver lettering is a nice touch as well, the spray button is contained within the silver lid as is the dispensing nozzle that emits a nice fine spray.
For those who are not a fan of vanilla in a fragrance then this may not be for them, I'm not a massive fan but I find that it does work in some combinations and this is one of them. The top notes in this scent are primarily jasmine and rose which give it a slightly exotiv flowery burst when first applied to my skin. The middle notes are where the vanilla comes through and there is also peach and amber and then the base notes are sandalwood and musk. There is a definate woody base to this fragrance that is quite rich and distinctive and these work well with the jasmine and vanilla that give it a floral feel along with the rose and overall they combine to provide quite a mature and lovely fragrance.
This is an excellent fragrance as it has really good staying power and was still going strong after eight hours and was still detectable after ten hours of wear which is pretty good in my opinion. There is a nice warmth to this fragarnce and it is very feminine despite the woody over tones that the sandalwood and musk provide. I prefer it is a day scent but it is very versatile and I do wear it out of an evening as well. This is certainly an affordable fragrance with good staying power especially for an eau de toilette.
Summary: Good long lasting fragrance
