Advantages: Gorgeous smelling light and fresh fragrance in a fantastic looking bottle
Disadvantages: Absolutely none
The fragrance I am reviewing today is contained within one of the cutest and loveable bottles that I have ever seen. I am also extremely impressed that the fragrance mirrors that of the bottle and in my opinion, it is adorable, clean and totally fun loving. I am today reviewing Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers Baby Perfume, which simply shrieks cute, cute, cute!
For those of you who are not familiar with this fragrance, it is one of a range of five absolutely delightful girly perfumes, namely Lil Angel, Music, G, Baby and Love; all of which display a cute little girl stood on top of the bottle. I don't normally favour celebrity-endorsed products as I find they are somewhat over-rated, but Gwen Stefani has most definitely come up trumps with this one.
I wasn't aware until I carried out some research on this range, that they were inspired by the Harajuku shopping district in Tokyo, which apparently is well-known for its' electric street scene.
The perfume is available in a few sizes with the 30ml flat glass bottle displaying a cute little sturdy plastic Harajuku lover who proudly wears her pretty red and white spotted dress and little blue bows in her bubbly black hair. She exhibits stunning eyes and delicately painted red fingernails. The box in which the fragrance is contained is also very eye-catching as it is in black with gorgeous bold writing.
I would say to you to be aware that you are only receiving 30ml of this fragrance, as whilst the box looks rather large, the majority of its' contents is that of the Harajuku figurine, so I would suggest you check out one of the samples before purchasing.
If you tend to prefer a more subtle and gentle perfume, this is most definitely for you with it's top notes of freesia, bergamot and white rose. When I initially sprayed this fragrance, I was considerably overwhelmed with the rather strong aroma of freesia and didn't think I was going to like it.
However, as top notes last for only a few minutes, it quickly settled when I was then greeted with the gorgeous heart notes of orange flower, tiare flower and jasmine. The base notes that remain with us the longest are white musk, soft woods, helitrope, vanilla and violet.
The only way I can describe this fragrance is that of Johnson's Baby Powder. It is soft, light and extremely clean smelling, yet simply gorgeous. It is very pleasing and ideal for those women who do not favour heavy fragrances.
I love wearing this fragrance, particularly in the summer months as it is so uplifting and just a couple of squirts via the push down spray located underneath the figurine will last a good few hours. I find that if I spray this at around 7 o'clock in the morning, I'm needing to reapply around lunchtime.
This fragrance will really give you the "feel good factor" as it's simply adorable. However, I wouldn't say this is suitable for evening use as it is extremely light, but there again, on a hot summer's evening, this would probably be just perfect.
I was surprised to learn that the fragrance contained musk, as I have not been able to identify its' scent. Nevertheless, the subtle aroma of freesia simply makes this fragrance absolutely adorable. I would also state that the scent of vanilla isn't evident, which is a positive for me, as I simply hate its' fragrance, other than that of an ice cream!
As you are no doubt aware, we should not store our fragrances on our dressing tables as exposure to heat or direct sunlight can damage the perfume. Consequently, I keep my bottle in a drawer and display them once empty, as they're too cute to just throw away.
Prices for this fragrance tend to vary dependent on the retailer with Boots currently charging £20 for a 30ml bottle where you will also receive a free gift.
I cannot recommend Gwen Stefani Harajuku Lovers Baby highly enough and therefore, it receives 5 out of 5 dooyoo stars from me.
I hope you found my review useful and would thank you for reading.
