Ghost Sweetheart Eau de Toilette
Advantages: simple bottle, flows well, love aroma, special
Disadvantages: strength, some may prefer a more unusual bottle
Ghost is a collection of fragrances created by Tanya Sarne. The current collection of Ghost fragrances on offer include titles such as Enchanted Bloom, Luminous and Deep Night.
'Sweet, cheerful - alluring and sensual'
Sweetheart is an eau de toilette. A matching body lotion and shower gel can also be purchased to layer the scent on the skin. Sweetheart is described as being a modern, oriental scent which 'recalls the feeling of first love'.
Sweetheart EDT, once sprayed onto skin, should develop and offer various fragrance notes for the wearer to appreciate.
*Top notes offer the initial scent - sweet lemon, pineapple and spearmint
*Heart notes create the main body of the scent - jasmine, heliotrope and rose
*Base notes finish off the scent - vanilla, caramel and tonka
Like the other Ghost fragrances, the bottle design for Sweetheart is simplistic and very feminine. The golden coloured liquid is presented in a tall, slender bottle which expands around the neck area. The bottle is transparent but slightly frosted and is finished with a rather cheap looking lid. The curvy nature of the bottle allows it to look feminine and understated. 'Ghost Sweetheart' is neatly printed on the front and the bottle is left uncomplicated.

I am a huge fan of the Ghost brand and have tried just about every fragrance and body lotion they offer. Sweetheart is a recent purchase. I had previously bought and reviewed the body lotion of this fragrance (Feb 2011) but it took me so long to get around to trying the actual EDT. I have now tried both - together and alone and have been very impressed with this gorgeous scent.
Sweetheart has what I call a 'classic' combination of fragrance notes. By this I mean fruity/fresh top notes, floral heart notes and a dry down of sweet or woody base notes. That being said, it isn't a run of the mill, identical to every other type scent. It has its own individual qualities. Being an eau de toilette, one cannot expect the strength or staying power of an eau de parfum. Many of the Ghost fragrances are day time scents but I feel Ghost Sweetheart is more of an early evening, romantic type scent that would suit a young girl through to a more mature lady.
~Spray Me Sweetheart~
Sweetheart EDT has a pleasant strength when first sprayed onto the skin. It doesn't have that strong, alcohol burst which cheaper scents tend to inflict and is delicious fragrance straight from the start. The opening scent is gorgeous - very fresh and feminine. The pineapple and lemon form an exotic, sweet and zesty blend which is very natural and delicate. The fresh element is offered by the spearmint. It lightens the scent and makes it suitable for Summer evenings.
The sweet, fruitiness from the top notes flows through to mingle with the heart notes after an hour or so. The floral notes used here are well chosen in my opinion. They aren't too heavy or cloying but you can notice the individual notes. The floral combination isn't fresh and subtle - it is more a fluttery, powdery scent with delicate white florals. The jasmine starts to come into play after an hour or two an d really adds substance and depth to the scent and enhancing the 'romantic' feel.
The dry down combo is quite strong on my skin in comparison to the rest of the scent. This is my favourite part of the overall fragrance as I am a sweet addict. This is a true treat for the senses and is very natural, dessert like scent. The vanilla plays the biggest role in the base notes - very rich, creamy and naturally sweetened. The caramel compliments the vanilla and definitely adds 'flavour' to the fragrance. It is seductively sweet with a burnt sugar undertone. Highly unusual and most addictive.
Sweetheart EDT is a gorgeous, feminine fragrance which lasts for a good 6 hours or so on bare skin. I find it beneficial to wear the body lotion during the day and spray on the EDT late afternoon. This allows the overall scent to last through to late evening. I always feel special when wearing this fragrance and have been impressed with how lovely it actually smells and how well it flows. I do seem to go through a lot of it so one bottle hasn't last me very long but I do love it!
Thanks for reading :)
