I was actually was walking through a Debenhams and was given this as a free sample which I didn't take any notice of until I got home and it smelt really lovely! I mentioned this to a friend of mine at work, and bless her for by birthday last year she got me a bottle and subsequently I know she has got it as a gift for me this Christmas as she conveniently asked if my bottle was nearly finished and I recognised the shape of the box!
- The Bottle -
Even though I am not a big fan of pink, it has a pretty girly feel to it and you are able to see the pink inside. The lid is shaped rather like a diamond and the bottle is a circular heart shape with straight edges to give it a very expensive jewellery look.
- The Perfume -
The perfume is really sweet and is really light to wear. It's very similar to my miss dior cherie but a more watered down version so not so sweet and sickly. It's perfume notes consist of mandarin, strawberry, violet, bergamot, jasmine, patchouli and vanilla. These compliment each other well, and the more noticeable aromas are the mandarin and strawberry which are fruity and soft. I like how this smells more in the daytime than at night time as its a gentle perfume with a delicate fragrance.
It has really good staying power, and lasts with me all day. The times when I wear it to work I frequently get asked what I'm wearing! I can squirt a bit at about 7am in the morning to set me up for the day and by 4pm it has a great subtle tone still left on my skin.
- Overall -
This is a really nice, light perfume and to be honest as much as I am not the biggest fan of Katie Price this perfume is not that bad. It has a sweet smell which is not overbearing or suffocating and has good lasting power so would definitely recommend it! It is reasonably priced at £10.25 for a 30ml bottle so would make a nice gift as a gorgeous, fruity daytime scent.
Stunning is a perfume by British celebrity Katie Price (a.k.a Jordan). The perfume was released in the United Kingdom in 2007 and so it has been around for a good few years now.
Stunning is available in various sized bottles:
30ml (£11.95, Amazon)
50ml (£18.00, Amazon)
100ml (£18.85, Amazon)
(So as you can see from the above you may as well get the 100ml one which is just 85p more than the 50ml bottle)
Top notes: Mandarin Orange.
Middle notes: Jasmine
Base notes: Patchouli
Obviously when trying out a perfume, the bottle is the first thing you see! This bottle tries so hard to look 'expensive' and yet it looks so cheap (and even more cheaper with its attempt at trying to look 'classier'). The bottle has a plastic lid which is shaped like a diamond. So, first impression, I did think that maybe this would be a really cheap and nasty perfume.
I was actually surprised, because it turns out that I actually really like this perfume. Sometimes it takes me a while to like a perfume - they tend to grow on me over time - however, I was surprised that I liked this perfume instantly. So I would say that with this perfume, you will know straight away whether you like it or not.
There are so many ways to describe this perfume: clean and fresh. It's also very light. It seems to be a mix between fruity and floral, yet there are no ingredients which 'stand out' to me - they all just to blend really well. It's quite 'girlie' and 'innocent' whilst at the same time there is something quite 'sexy' and 'daring' about it.
You only need a little bit - perhaps two squirts per wear as the perfume is quite strong. I find that it lasts all day which is good and so means that as you need less, a bottle lasts a long time. So I would say that this perfume is great value for money. One word of advice though; don't spray too much as you may end up with a headache!
The perfume is quite young and so I would recommend it to teenagers and people in their twenties. Whilst the perfume is quite light and perfect for summer, as it is quite 'earthy' and 'woody' I would say that it's ok for winter too. So I would recommend to wear it for 'all year round'.
Thanks for reading!
I bought this from Wilko around three years ago with some "Love 2 Shop" vouchers that I received for my birthday. The gift set cost £19.99 and I received the 50ml perfume, a shower gel and body lotion.
This is the sweetest perfume in my collection without a doubt, and I have around fifty perfumes! The perfume comes in an attractive looking bottle that shows the pink colour of the perfume. The lid of the perfume is designed to look like crystal, although it's actually made of plastic and keeps falling off! The perfume contains a mix of sweet floral notes such as mandarin, violet and jasmine. The perfume is VERY sweet. I doubt it'd be to everyone's taste. However, I like it and it's just a case of not over doing it. I usually apply around two sprays in the morning and top it up as the day goes on. Thankfully it doesn't need topping up all that often.
The perfume has great staying power, it really does last all day. It settles well and the more mature notes come through after a few hours. When you first spray it you are met by the fresher notes such as mandarin and bergamot. These are nice notes but I think Katie has overdone it on the floral notes. I know she wanted to create a memorable debut in terms of fragrance but this scent does come across as a little cheap. Although I do like the scent I don't wear it all the time as it gives me a headache as the day goes on. I have been known to wipe it off before as it just came across as far too strong.
Like I said, I do like this scent and I do enjoy wearing it. However, it is far too sweet and sickly...
So i always wandered what perfume one of my friends used to always wear........ was it really expensive...it must be it smells so good!
So i asked her and when she told me it was katie price automatically i thought 'really? but it smells so good!!'
A lot of people like myself would think oh god shes brought out a perfume, i wont bother smelling it as its probably rubbish! DONT BE MISTAKEN!
At least take the time when you are next in the shop to ask the person behind the counter to let you try it.
Its quite a sweet smell and what i have found is that it lasts all day which is what i enjoy the most. Usually perfumes are non-existant after a few hours but this one you can still smell on your clothes after a long day at work or after a night out!
If i had to name a few perfumes it has a similar scent to, they would be Britney spears; fantasy and next; diamonds.
I personally love the smell and is nice to wear on all occasions and will not break the bank.
This is my favourite perfume. The packaging looks cheap and tacky, bit like the creator, but smells great. If you took away the packaging you wouldn't know it was made by her. It lasts all day and isnt too over powering. One of the best perfumes, But I think its a bit over priced though...
I buy perfumes for the bottles (if you hadn't already noticed!!).
This bottle is very pretty and looks gorgeous on the dressing table. Through the bottle you can see the pink coloured perfume which just adds to this perfumes appeal.
I am not the biggest Katie Price/Reid/Jordan fan but I had this in part of a gift set the year before last along with the shower gel and body lotion, it came in a rectangular shaped box with a front that flipped over, on the front of the box was a huge picture of Katie! Under the flip lid, you could see through the plastic front, this showed the products. Immediatly I loved the shape of the bottle.
The bottle is cut to look like a giant gem stone and the plastic lid on top looks like a diamond. It is nice and chunky and very easy to use. Around the top, under the diamond shaped lid you will find a silver band with Stunning emblazed across it.
It has a long lasting, pretty feminine scent with top notes of mandarin orange, heart notes of jasmine and violet and base notes of patchouli and bergamot.
The fruity scent is the first thing that hits you and to be honest it's not really expected with the pink colouring of this perfume, I expected it to be more a floral scent but I was proved wrong! The floral notes do come in but it still seems to keep the fruitiness. The lasting scent is very pleasant and lasts so well.
I can see that it is available from amazon for £27.57 for 50ml. I also found it on the Debenhams website, the gift set with a 100ml bottle, body lotion and shower gel for £19.60. (Price correct 4/10/2010).
As far as a celebrity perfumes go this one was not so good and i buy a lot of them. Katie can usualy do no wrong in my eyes however on this occassion she could have done better. It comes in a cute little bottle, the scent of the perfume is nice when you spray it but now for the bad bits.
The perfum smell only lasts a very short time even if you spray on a fair bit of scent. I bought Katie prices perfume used it a couple of times and then did not use it for around a month and it sat on my perfume shelf. When i went back to the bottle around a third of the bottle had evaporated ? strange but true. I would not recommend this product for these reasons which is a shame as the perfume does gave good aspects to it.
After buying this perfume, I can honestly say I find it anything but Stunning. I was hugely disappointed with it and actually hate the smell. I am surprised by how much everyone else seems to love it!
The perfume is made up of patchouli, bergamot, vanilla, peach, jasmine, madarin and rose. All of these are beautiful scents in their own right and should smell beautiful together but in my opinion it was a disaster. The perfume is very overpowering. Two squirts and it is enough to set a room full of people off into a coughing fit. I don't like overpowering perfumes and this fits the bill perfectly. It gives off a very sickly sweet scent. To be honest, it didn't smell like a perfume you would spend £20+ on, in fact it smells like something you would buy in the £1 shop. It smells cheap and tacky. It is truly awful. Unfortunately, the scent is long lasting, no matter how much I tried to scrub it off. It last a good 8 hours!
The bottle is a nice shape, like a diamond, but the topper for it is awful, cheap and plastic. The silver started flaking off the minute I took the topper off the bottle which was a let down. The topper had a very poor finish.
I personally wouldn't give this perfume as a gift. It is very much a perfume which is down to personal preference. I really thought I would like it but just couldn't. It is definately a perfume that I would recommend using a tester of first. I wish I had. Now I use it to scent my hoover! It is the most expensive freshner for my hoover ever.

STUNNING opened nicely; I love the long top note of mandarin. It didn't smell plastic at all, just juicy and freshly sweet.
Sadly it just went downhill from there. I love strawberry and violets, but couldn't detect them thanks to the overwhelming jasmine note... and when the dreaded (cue scary music) patchouli note mingles with the jasmine my stomach turned.

Mandarin, strawberry, violet, bergamot, jasmine, patchouli and vanilla.

I thought the bottle and pink juice - although gaudy - were fun and cute.

Other buying considerations
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
The staying power is very impressive for the reasonable price. After an eight hour day I could still clearly smell it.
As it's so strong, it'd be best to avoid it if you suffer from migraines.

Overall I found this too strong to wear and sickly in warmer weather.
Also: People around also found it cloying and sickly - not an impression I want to make!
This is also very similar to Miss Dior Cherie. If I worked for Dior I'd seriously be looking at legal options - they really do smell so similar.
So if you like Miss Dior Cherie, but not the price, check out STUNNING.

This is my favourite perfume of all time. I tend to like perfumes such as True Star, Game etc. but because I don't tend to remember to squirt myself, I have never finished a bottle (shame on me I know!). Well, there isn't a drop left of Stunning by Katie Price.
I had this perfume as a prezie from my husband he chose it, but I had already smelt it and loved it. By the way, I didn't buy it because it has katie Price on the box.
It has a diamond shaped bottle which I like and you are able to see the pink perfume colour through the bottle. I wouldn't say that it is a strong perfume, but the smell does last all day. I often have people ask complement my perfume whilst wearing this.
It gives a light, subtle smell. To me' it's quite a sweet, floral smell (if that makes any sense!). It's a fresh, clean fragrance.
Reasonably priced: 50ml-£27 at Amazon.co.uk (at the moment). My husband purchased mine in Boots, so he had advantage points too. He was also lucky to catch an offer on the perfume, 50ml + the body lotion for free. I thought that was a good deal.
I will purchase this again soon and I think it makes a lovely gift.
I have to admit i raised an eyebrow when my husband bought me this perfume for christmas. Whilst im not an anti katie price activist... im hardly a katie price supporter either. But still - he'd chosen it for me and i was grateful.
I was even more grateful when i smelled it. This perfume is absolutely gorgeous! Definately one of my favourites ever! It has a wonderful undertone that smells almost orangey (which i love!!!) and its fresh and lasts all day.
I get loads of compliments on it and people are always surprised when i tell them that its katie prices. Even better still - it isnt too expensive and wont break the bank. The bottle is lovely too and makes a pretty addition to your dressing table.
Katies perfume was definately a pleasant surprise and im definately going to give her other fragrance 'besotted' a go next.
My advice.... dont judge the perfume by the name. Even if you arent a Katie fan i guarantee you will like her perfume!!!
What a beautiful smell! I love Katie Price I'm a huge fan having read all her books and following her career I knew I had to buy this perfume! The moment it came in the shops I was there buying it! So Katie is not the most popular of people however her perfume truly smells lush, I think everyone would be surprised by it, in a good way of course!
Ok so on to the smell it is a very feminine and sexy smell, defiantly one for women who love their sweet perfume. As well as being sweet it is also very fruity and floral the type of perfume I love! It has notes of Mandarin and jasmine too which just make this perfume beautiful. The perfume itself lasts all day and all night, it leaves your cloths smelling lush too! My boyfriend loves this smell on me! So I'm happy!
The bottle looks like a diamond and is really pretty defiantly one of perfume collectors, the perfume inside is a light pink very girly!
Stunning really is a stunning smell Katie could not have come up with a better name! It truly is beautiful! If in doubt do ask for a tester, it can be over powering at first but give it chance to settle on your skin and you will be very impressed! Trust me!
Price wise it has come down a lot as it was first released in 2007 so it is not new anymore.
You can buy a 30ml for around £15, 50ml for around £20 and a 100ml is around about £25-£30. All depending on where you buy your perfume too, it is well worth looking around for. As well as buying the perfume you can buy body lotion and bubble bath so you can really treat yourself!
It also makes a great present, whilst working in my old shop I used to recommend this perfume to women who like channel Coco mademoiselle it is a lot cheaper and the smell is almost identical! A lot of women agree with me on that and save them self's a lot of money! So go on try it!
This is the first fragrance from Katie Price/Jordan whatever her name is now. I love perfume and i always like to try them, even the celebrity endorsed ones. I have got this twice as a present but i dont think i would buy it again for myself. Its quite cheap, and most places have it for about £20 which is probably why its been so popular, most of her fans are teenage girls so she would be silly to charge much more than that for it.
The bottle is clear glass but strangely the lid is clear plastic which just looks stupid. The perfume is pink (obviously) and the neck of the bottle has a silver lining with the words, Katie Price and Stunning printed on it. Pretty basic packaging, but what do you expect for under £20?
Its quite a sweet smell and lasts for a good amount of time, but was strangely familiar.....................It seems to be a complete cheapened down version of Miss Dior Cherie! I only discovered this after asking my friend if she had Stunning on, which i was surprised about as she despises Jordan. The look on her poor face when we compared my £20 bottle with her £70 Dior perfume. Annoyingly for her a lot of people have since asked her if she has Stunning on, noone seems to have heard of Miss Dior Cherie! Also she said the reason she first bout Miss Dior was because it smells like Soap and Glorys mouisturiser, so Jordans ripped of two well known brands to "create" her fragrance.
Apart from that, its not that bad, a bit flowery and sweet but its ok and i dont mind smelling it on other people. I just found that even when i sprayed a small amount on myself, i couldnt stop sneezing and stared to get a headache. The ingredients say there is mandarin, violet, patchouli and bergamot and it smells quite citrusy so its nice for during the day. A good alternative if you dont wanna pay for the Dior perfume!
Being probably the only person left in the UK that actually likes Katie Price, I usually get presents for Christmas from her range, usually they are books but last year after seeing she had released a perfume someone, I cannot remember who decided to buy me Stunning. Im a big fan of any perfume and I have about 50 different half filled bottles strewn over my bathroom shelf so whoever bought me this particular one obviously thought I would love it. In reality I hated it. In fact I sprayed it about twice and it has been left there ever since still in it's full packaging on the shelf! To say I was disappointed would be a massive understatment, but after reading a few other dooyoo reviews on this very same perfume I was shocked to find that pretty much everyone else loved it! It's safe to say I have a very different opinion (:
Now this was one thing I did like about the perfume, a lot of thought had obviously gone into the design. It looks like a giant crystal and looks to be very feminine because it is a lovely pink colour. While the bottle itself is made out of glass the little top of it another clear diamond shape is made out of plastic. Girly girls will fall in love with the design of this bottle it looks very sophisticated and sexy and does look well stunning!
Now this was the part I did not like! After a quick peek around the net I found the ingredients in this perfume are as follows: Patchouli, bergamot, vanilla, peach, jasmine, madarin and rose (well thats all I could find anyway!!) I coudlnt really pick out any individual scents but all these mixed together for me just did not work. It smelt to sweet and sickly and generally smelt a bit cheap and tacky in my opinion (maybe Im just a perfume snob! Who knows!!) When the smell started dying down if anything it started smelling even worse, sort of like how do I put this......like a fart in a bottle! This defiantley did not leave me with the sexy, sophisticated scent I was hoping for when I saw the bottle, it left me feeling smelly and disappointed. I will say the scent did last around 6 hours so it has great staying power, even though I didnt want it to stick around!!
I wouldnt recommend that anyone buy's this, if you want to have a smell and just get your own opinion on it definatley go into a store and get a tester first, do not under any circumstances buy straight away! I do hope very much that the person that spent money buying me this doent read my review!! I found this way to sickly and sweet and when it died down if anything it got even worse. Its way to expensive for the cheap smell you get from it, or maybe as I mentioned Im just a perfume snob. Not recommended from me, but if you know someone who likes this perfume I could be a nice little gift for your sister, mother, girlfriend this Christmas :)

Stunning - exactly how this fragrance smells. whether you like or dislike katie price the perfume is a must have. i use this everyday and regularly get compliments on how nice it smells which makes me feel great! this perfume is definately long lasting and has a very sweet smell. i would say this perfume is for the young as opposed to the older woman as the smell comes across quite innocent and fruity. The liquid is a fresh pink colour and the bottle looks attractive like a jewel.
The fragrance is not expensive so you can always be topped up!
It is widely available in many stores along the high street as well as catologues and over the internet. i am rather a big fan of katie price myself which intrigued me to buy the perfume and i definately would not be without it. Overall i would recommend the perfume to fellow friends and family and i am very happy that i have a bottle on my shelf!
The lasting background notes are blends of patchouli and bergamot /
