All of the Ghost perfume collection that I have tried, I like and Ghost Luminous is no different. I received this as a Christmas present and had to say I had not really seen it before, which is probably because it is relatively new to the market and I don't buy myself too many perfumes!
Ghost have a large range of perfumes for women, of which I have tried three. The Luminous perfume is one of their more recent fragrances originally launched in 2009. The bottle has a lovely elegant appearance and shape to it. It is made of a slender and smooth circular glass that is about 20 cm tall with a thinner top and widening base to the bottom of the bottle. The glass is cut in a swirly pattern on the front. The top of the bottle has a removable plastic cap that keeps the spray nozzle safe and the perfume fresh.
The bottle just has the Ghost branding in simple lettering on the front. Ghost say that the bottle is meant to represent the form of a glowing lantern. It actually reminds me slightly of the Lord of the Rings gift from the elves to Frodo! The Light of Eärendil.
The perfume comes in a pale peach coloured cardboard box, again very simple and plain but elegant at the same time.
The perfume is a rich peachy amber colour and reminds me of spring and summer months. It looks a very fresh and romantic scent. On spraying the scent you get a burst of Vitamin C! It is a very fruity smelling perfume, fresh and sharp!
Top notes: orange, pineapple, black currant, melon, green apple, bergamot and red apple;
Middle notes: violet, freesia, jasmine, raspberry leaf, lily-of-the-valley and rose;
Base notes: sandalwood, raspberry, vetiver and peach.
So a very fruity perfume, not one for the deep and sensual perfume fans. The fragrance is sweet, light and fruit filled and is best suited to spring and summer month I find. I always take this along on my holidays as it smells so refreshing and light on my skin. On spraying you get hit with the calming freshness of bergamot, champagne and sea breeze accord to awaken the senses, and it really does.
The staying power is not amazing being such a fruit and sweet based perfume, but it lasts a good few hours and is lovely. The fragrance is apparently inspired by the modern woman, "who appreciates she has the inner light to shine naturally", which kind of suggests to me that it doesn't have much of a fragrance to do! But it does and it is lovely and addictive.
A great buy for the summer :)
A 30 ml bottle of this is currently priced at £24.90 at Boots.
Ghost Luminous is another fantastic perfume from the Ghost range. It has such a rich and glamorous smell it really stands out. I'm not exactly sure why but this scent really reminds me of Christmas time, just the type of aroma it has i guess. With top notes of many fruits and a champagne smell! It also has base notes of Sandalwood, raspberry & peach.
The bottle is very sleek and when it's still full it looks almost like a golden bottle of champagne. This fragrance is a must have for any 'Ghost' fan.
Just like all of the other Ghost perfumes this one is very affordable for every budget and comes in different sizes. You can get a 50ml bottle for around £30. It would make a great gift at anytime of the year. It's not too young a scent so i can't see teenagers really wearing it, but anyone else it will really suit! It can also be worn for all occasions but would be particularly nice for a night out.
The Ghost Luminous Eau de Toilette Perfume is a lovely fragrance for when you want a perfume with an expensive scent and look to it, without actually spending all that much money, as this perfume is both inexpensive and very good! You can either buy this bottle in a 50 or 30 ml bottle, and the bottle itself is made out of thick and very nice looking glass, as is the lid, which makes the bottle look very fancy and quite expensive!
This fragrance appealed to me because it`s very feminine and warm, without becoming too intense and strong, and it has a flowery and fruity scent to it, very light and refreshing, yet so sensual that you can wear it for a night out, or for work and such if you`d like to... After having first applied this perfume onto my skin, it lasts for about four to five hours before I re -apply, and after a while, what scent I detect to be white flowers, transform into something that reminds me of forests and sandalwood, with a touch of perhaps peach and green apples, I`m not quite sure... However, I really enjoy this perfume because it smells really lovely and comes in a nice looking bottle, and a cost of say 17.50 pounds for 50 ml is very appealing if you ask me, so all in all, this is a perfume I don`t hesitate in awarding full score, it truly deserves it!
Ghost: Luminous perfume for women is available in 50 and 30ML. Prices vary from store to store and this perfume is also available as part of a gift set which comes with a wonderful smelling hand cream b(which has a slight different twist from the perfume, its not as strong).
I have no idea why this perfume is called Luminous ghost, the only reason I can think of is the fact that the scent does not die away for a couple of hours.
The perfume comes in a feminine shaped bottle which has a slight frosted effect, I think the shape of the bottle is also something which makes this perfume unique and appealing to the eye.
The bottle is made from glass and so is the lid.
A small spray of the perfume is all you need to make it last for a couple of hours. Be careful not to spray it on your upper neck as strangely you can feel the scent in your mouth. The scent is quite strong with a sharp kick, and fruity (Apple and pineapple type scent). Although smells are quite difficult to describe I'm going to try and have a go!
It has a strong fruity and floral smell. Its almost like opening a bottle of fizz, the scent is over powering but not in a negative way! in time the scent then dies down but is not completely gone. This perfume does have a distinctive and unique smell in the sense that once you've used it you will be able to recognise it on anyone else
The scent of this perfume is warming in a pleasant way, ideal for wearing on a first time date!
As I have mentioned in some other reviews, I find chosing my own perfumes quite hard and I tend to pinch ideas off others, which is probably not the best idea if you want to keep all your friends. Overtime I had come to realise that I liked the perfume Ghost Deep Night and also the perfume Ghost Sweetheart, so I thought it would be a good idea to try and third ghost one to add some variety to my perfume useage!
After some internet searching I found Ghost Luminous for sale in a set quite cheaply, as I had done with the Ghost Sweetheart. I thought it was a good sign to be in a nice set, as it was ideally packaged for a gift and you get more for your money than if you buy the perfume and the body lotion by itself.
Ghost Luminious is also a bit more a day smell, like Sweetheart, but unlike Deep Night I think you could get away with wearing this as a day or night perfume.
it is more mature than modern, more like a classic, and has quite rightly been compared to more expensive brands like Chanel and come off well. the scent contains bergamot, pineapple, red and green apples, and a variety of other fruits. I would not read too much into that though, as that makes it sounds sickly and like a fruit bowl, but the scent is much calmer, relaxed and subtly than the description would lead you to believe.
If you are a Ghost fan then give this a go. It is mature and subtle and fits in somewhere between their other scents. It is not such an out there scent, more drawing people to you without you knowing why!
This is a perfect smell for those who really do not want to spend loads. I love this fragrance it is the right strength and perfect smell.
Ghost is a well known brand and has come down drastically over time and now is a very reasonable price. For a great daily smell. Ghost have many different smells and fragrances so if this one is not for you do smell some of the others as you will find your perfect match.
Luminous is very floral, not too fruity it is even slightly musky it is quite over powering at first but then calms down a lot. It settles on the skin gently and lasts for hours. Compared to rival brands such as Channel I would definatly recommend Ghost due to the fact that the smells are so simular yet the prices are dramatically different so much cheaper. Well worth the money.
You can buy luminous comes in a variety of sizes most commonly 30ml and 50ml however if you look carefully you may find the odd 100ml. I would say go for the 50ml because there is only about £5 difference between the 30ml and 50ml. So it is well worth the extra couple of pounds.
Ghost makes a beautiful gift this is always my fail safe smell that I always buy for friends and family. So why struggle buying present for people just buy Ghost!
