Ghost Ghost Cherish Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Reasonable price, gorgeous looking bottle, amazing scent!
Disadvantages: The eau de toilette does have a long lasting scent, but I'd like the option of an EDP too!
REASONS FOR PURCHASE
I first tried Ghost Cherish around 5 years ago when I received it as a gift. It came in a gift set along with a body lotion and shower gel.
My first thoughts were "Oh no! I'm really fussy with perfumes so I'm really going to have to pretend to like this!". But then when I actually tested the scent for the first time I was hooked!
I've replaced Ghost Cherish many times since my first encounter!
THE WRITE UP
From www.cheapsmells.com: "Perhaps the most feminine of all the Ghost fragrances, Cherish celebrates the eternal nature of a woman. The ability to treasure, to nourish, to love and to laugh. Thoroughly irresistible, the beautiful, floral, powdery scent is a hug for the soul and the senses. Ghost Cherish blends delicious fresh pink grapefruit with crisp green apple and the heady scent of freesia. This merges with the pretty perfume of roses, pink lotus flower and violet for a scent that is sparkling and light, with an undercurrent of elegant, romantic richness. Truly a fragrance to cherish. "
At the moment I have a 50ml bottle of the EDT (no EDP is available for Ghost Cherish) and the RRP is £31. The last time I purchased this was near Christmas AND from a store, so I had to settle for paying full price.
Now is a great time to buy since perfumes are way more likely to be discounted outside of the holiday season!
This perfumes is available from all the usual places - department stores, perfume shops, high street chemist / pharmacies. And these same store's websites, as well as online shops such as www.cheapsmells.com.
At the moment you can buy a 50ml EDT for £24.60 on www.amazon.co.uk. This includes free delivery.
The perfume bottles comes in a pretty pink cardboard box. Plain and simple with all the neccessary product information.
The perfume bottle itself is one that I'm really taken with. Tall, slim, clear, curved glass. Looks really elegant on your dressing table, and doesn't take up too much space either! The perfume is a beautiful sheer pink.
When I tried my first ever spray of Ghost Cherish I was blown away by the strength of the roses scent! While I'm not overly keen on all floral smells, I simply adore the smell of roses. As a teenager I'd dab rose oil straight onto my wrists, and this perfume immediately took me back to that time!
Since this is an eau de toilette, you can afford to be quite generous with how much you spray. This morning for example, I sprayed once on each wrist, then about four sprays over my neck and on my clothes, then I went back for a few more wrist sprays. Just because I love the scent so much!
So yes, when you first spray, you won't be able to miss the distinct rose scent. There is also an underlying fruitiness to this perfume - nothing over sickly like berries or tropical fruit, and nothing too sharp or citrus either. I was surprised to read that this perfume contained grapefruit notes, but not surprised to hear about the apple notes. Once the suggestion was put in my head I could definitely smell the apples!
For me, this perfume works well day or night, it's not overpowering in the way that some of the 'classic' brands of perfume can be if worn during the day. It's not too light and 'nothinging' like some typically 'daytime' scents either! Because the floral notes in the perfume are quite unusual and unique to Ghost Cherish, there is no way you could describe this one as 'grandma' like.
As the day goes on, this perfume does fade a bit, but the scent (in my opinion!) doesn't change much from the first application. The floral, fruity notes are still exactly the same. All I can say is that the rose notes fade ever so slightly to allow some of the other floral notes to shine through. For example, I'm now pretty sure I can detect the freesia and voilets above the roses!
For an eau de toilette, I'm really impressed with Ghost Cherish's longevity. I just wish it was available in an eau de parfum so I can smell of this wonderful scent for even longer (and stronger!).
I couldn't recommend this perfume highly enough, I'd go as far as to say it is one of my top 3 scents of all time! I have so many compliments when wearing this perfume, and a few people have even gone out to buy this after I've told them what I was wearing.
If you love a really feminine scent, even if you haven't been overly keen on florals in the past, chances are you'll love this as much as I do!
Summary: A really feminine and unique scent. If you love the smell of roses you'll adore this!
