      .

      Another day, another Perfume review and another one that I got for Christmas.

      I have heard of the person Hilary Duff, and the person that bought this for me is my teenage niece, so as far as I know Hilary is more of a teenagers celebrity.

      There is the With Love Perfume, and this one which is Wrapped With Love so I would assume they are part of the same brnad in a way.

      The bottle looks alright. A pretty girly looking bottle. It is like the Dooyoo picture. The glass is ridged and a nice enough pattern and you can see the pink liquid through it. Not too keen on the lid though, as I think the lid could have been made nicer instead of this plain looking plastic rectangle.

      So how does this smell? It is pretty nice actually. Just looked to see what the notes in here are and they are plum, iced honeydew, mandarin, blood orange, mango bean, white lily, raspberry, milk, violet, vanilla bean, musk and white chocolate mousse. So lots going on in here. I don't think I can smell half of it though. I would say the main scents are the iced honeydew, white lily and the vanilla bean with perhaps the mandarin as well. It is a nice fresh mix of scents and is light and fruity too.

      With a name involving Love I would have expected this to be a more heavier scent involving Jasmine, Sandalwood or that, so very surprised at the scent.

      The scent lasts a decent lenght of time I would say. Sprayed this in the morning and could still smell a bit of it around 4 hours later. Quite average for Perfumes of this price.

      I checked online for this and see that the 50ml bottle costs between £15-£20.

      I could see myself buying this for myself. It is a nice scent which is packed with Fruity and sweet notes and it's the kind of scent I go for.

      This is nothing like With Love

      (I know I've wrote loads of fragrance reviews this week - I've been sorting through my collection, weeding out the ones I really use and making notes. So I'm reviewing them while everything is still fresh in my mind :))

      The fragrance
      - - - - - - - - - - -

      WRAPPED WITH LOVE surprised me with its lightness. I was expecting something stronger and sweeter, based on the listed scent notes.

      It opens with sweetly fresh fruits, with the standout being the mandarin and a hint of tart raspberries. The fruit notes are mild - I'm guessing that the melon accords watered it all down.

      I can't pick up on the floral notes, the fragrance burns straight to the vanilla and soft musk base. I can detect a slight aroma that reminds me of condensed milk, but no chocolate. However; The light, airy sweetness to the base does bring mousse to mind.

      The bottle
      - - - - - - - - - -

      It is the same, weighty design as With Love, but this time the bottle is a semi-transparent baby pink, with a floral motif and a green cap to top it off. I love the original, but this colour combination is rather tacky to be honest.

      The cap doesn't fit on the bottle very well - in fact I can't find mine.

      Other buying considerations

      This is a light, airy fragrance, so it's best suited to daywear during summer months.

      Average wear time is about three hours, but it is close to the skin for half this time.

      My opinion
      - - - - - - - - -

      While I don't dislike WRAPPED WITH LOVE and still wear it from time to time, there is nothing in it that grabs my attention, so I won't be re-buying this.

      If you like Vera Wang Princess - but not the price - I think you'll enjoy this too.

      I was surprised that as a flanker to With Love, there was nothing similar between the 2 fragrances. The only things they have in common are the names & bottles. They should have marketed it as a new fragrance, rather then just as With Love: The Revenge.
      I hate when companies trick customers like this [I received my bottle as a gift. They thought that with the same shape bottle and similar name I'd love it as much as With Love].

      It is only sold in a 50ml bottle and is exclusive to Superdrugs in the high street, although some stores don't stock it. Some online retailers also carry it now though and prices vary between £15 and £25.
