Ghost Whisper Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Smells absolutely gorgeous and offers good staying power
Disadvantages: None for me
I adore using beautiful fragrances on my skin and whilst I am not remotely interested in designer brands in relation to clothes and handbags, they are my only choice when it comes to perfumes. I have a few firm favourites such as Beautiful by Estee Lauder and Beauty by Calvin Klein, but I prefer to alternate my fragrances, particularly as after a period of continuous use my sense of smell becomes accustomed to my perfume and I need to re-awaken my nasal passages. I normally choose eau de parfums as opposed to eau de toilettes due to the fact that they are more concentrated and as a result, offer a longer lasting aroma. For Christmas last year I received a 50ml bottle of fragrance belonging to Ghost, namely Ghost Whisper and this review discusses my thoughts and experience.
I adore the appearance of the tall glass bottle with its sleek curves and contemporary design, which is very feminine and fresh. Ghost Whisper is dispensed in a fine mist and opens with the most enchanting and delightful accord with the uplifting and refreshing scent of mandarin, which is perfectly accompanied with further fruitiness of the star fruit. To compliment the slight sharpness that both these fruits offer the designer has added a hint of soft white almond and the delightful aroma is evident for a good ten minutes before being joined by the heart notes. It is at this point that the fragrance begins to come alive with its floral tones of the honeysuckle flower, which promptly whisks me back to my childhood. This is accompanied with hydroponic honeysuckle together with the striking and charming aroma of jasmine and the uplifting zest of orange flower. These heart notes delicately sit on my skin for approximately an hour before the base notes become evident.
I'm a huge fan of musk fragrances and was thrilled to witness the scent in the base notes when it swirls into recognition together with powdering helitrope and creamy woods. The notes work in harmony to create the most stunning scent that is perfect for wearing during the summer months. Whilst the aroma of musk can occasionally be deemed as too heady the designer has achieved the perfect balance in this fragrance with its sensual and romantic tones together with the uplifting zestiness of the citrus fruits.
As Ghost Whisper is an eau de toilette it contains approximately 1 - 6% perfume concentrates, so its longevity is considerably less than an eau de parfum, which contains approximately 7 - 15% of oil concentrates. I find that I am able to witness the enchanting aroma from the time I spray in the morning until around lunchtime, so I can achieve a good four hours of scent before needing to reapply, which is pretty good going for an eau de toilette. The fact that the skin on my body can be described as normal with the exception of a few dry patches is a huge bonus when it comes to wearing fragrances as my skin's natural moisturise is able to grip the scent for much longer. It is recommended that fragrances be applied to pulse points, ie wrists or behind the knees, as it is quickly heated due to these areas consisting of blood vessels that are close to the skin's surface. Consequently, the aroma emitted is considerably intensified.
This is a beautiful summer scent and would be well suited for women aged late teens and upward. A point I would make here is that many years ago I would make a fragrance purchase within seconds of witnessing its aroma in store. However, as the scent can differ from one person to the next due to a number of reasons such as their age, diet and skin type I will always request a spray on a pulse point and leave the store until all of the notes have fully developed. Consequently, the majority of my fragrances purchased are not made on the same day.
Ghost Whisper is available in three sizes and I have checked the Boots website for up to date prices where you can obtain the 30 ml bottle for £24, the 50 ml bottle for £32.50 and the 75 ml bottle for £44.50, which I think represents good value for money. As this is such a gorgeous and very desirable eau de toilette it receives 5 stars from me together with my recommendation.
I hope you found my review useful and thanks for reading.
