“ Brand: Kylie Minogue / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette / Gender: for women „
Kylie Minogue started her career in Neighbours. She has turned her abilities to film acting and has a successful pop career. Despite having suffered with cancer, she found the strength to release a perfume collection.
Kylies perfume range centres around the Darling scent of which there are several variations including Sweet and Sexy. There are 3 more scents..Couture, Pink Sparkle and Showtime. Coty perfumes release the scents.
Showtime was released by Kylie to mirror her personaility. Kylies comeback tour was named Showtime so the name was suitably picked. It edges away from the traditional Darling scent and is described as being exciting, unique and a sexy scent.
The bottle is designed to resemble a discoball. Small and perfectly rounded, the clear glass base has lines etched into it. A silver disc runs around the top of the bottle with the Kylie Minogue and Showtime named engraved. Topping it off, a large, click off silver lid with a bright ,pink gemstone adorning the top, conceals a silver spray top.
The perfume inside is a gorgeous, light pink colour which reflects in the light. The EDP version is a deeper pink as you would expect.
The scent notes are those which make up the overall perfume. They are split into 3 stages to provide a progressive scent.
The top notes are those which are instantly detectable as the perfume makes contact with your skin. These notes generally last for around 5-10mins. Showtime opens up with a striking, fruity combination of wild strawberry, loganberry and blackcurrant.
The middle notes or heart notes make up the body of the scent. Generally lasting for up to an hour, Showtime offers us a mainly floral composistion of roses, lilacs, tiare flowers. The floral is toned down with a sweet liquorice note.
The base notes are those which will remain on your skin for the duration of its lifespan. Showtime settles with a balanced blend of white musk, rosewood and a praline-vanilla offering.

My ever growing perfume collection is so precious to me and I love adding new scents to it. Whilst I appreciate some expensive scents such as Dior and Gucci, I also have a strong desire for cheaper scents and I have several "celebrity endorsed" scents in my collection.
The Kylie scents are all to my taste with the exception of Sweet Darling which I found so sickenly sweet that it gave me a headache! Showtime was given to me by a friend in March. It was a birthday gift and one which was greatfully received. I switch between all my scents depending on my mood and occasion so have only recently gotten down to the last splash.
The bottle itself is nice but a tad tacky. Its a smooth bottle but I feel the gemstone on top is tacky looking. I spray a drop on my wrists and each end of my neck. The perfume sprays out quite harsh and is rather damp on the skin. It takes a few seconds more than my other scentsr to settle and once it has, there is no residue left on my skin.
The perfume once sprayed is powerful and smells strongly of alcohol. I found this to be quite overbearing. The alcohol aroma soon subsides leaving a strong and fresh fruity combination behind. Whilst my favourite scents are mainly fruity or sweet, this is exceptionally strong and does tickle my nose hairs. At first, I was certain it was a berry scent which is understandable as the top notes are made up of 3 berry fruits. After a minute, the scent changed slightly and reminded me of a gorgeous tutti fruity candle I have. Simply gorgeous and not as overbearing as it initially felt.
The fruity blend subsides fairly quickly and a light, fresh floral option pushes through. I find the individual floral notes difficult to detect in this scent but the rose note was the most prominent. Whilst overly floral scents are not for me, Showtime offered me a sweet floral due to the addition of liquorice. The liquorice wasn't strong like a sweet but blended well with the floral notes to allow them to remain pleasant but not overpowering.
The settling scent is gorgeous and has a unique sweetness that I haven't experienced in any other perfume. After the extra fruity opening and sweet floral middle stage, the musky, sweet base was welcomed. I expected something sweet but I appreciated this combination more than expected. The musk took a slight edge of the praline-vanilla combo which could have easily been too sweet. Thankfully the creators got the blend just right and the vanilla was most prominent adding a light sweetness trace to my skin.
Showtime remains a strong and noticeable scent throughout its course on my skin and only begins to fade as the base notes seep away. The disappointing factor is that the overall scent doesn't last on my skin long enough. It is too powerful to keep spraying though the scent has completely vanished from my skin within a few short hours. I am not overly concerned as this is EDT and not an EDP. I would only buy this at a cheaper price though due to its short span on my skin.
I would say this a strong, vibrant scent which would suit those with a nose for sweet and fruity blends. It is quite young in my opinion and would suit those under 30. I feel it is ideal for a summer scent as it is fresh and beautiful.
This won't suit anyone and where possible try and have a spray before committing yourself to buying a fullsize bottle.
Thanks for reading :)
I have never really bothered with celebrity scents before. I tend to stick to my well known brands that I love which sadly are usually expensive! However for my 30th birthday recently my friend's parents bought me a gift set with 30ml of the Kylie Showtime Eau de toilette.
Upon smelling the perfume I realised it was very sweet and wondered if it would be for me but once the initial strong sweetness settles down you are left with a lovely fruity sweet fragrance. If you are not a fan of sweet, girly fragrances however, then this perfume is probably not for you.
The top notes in the perfume are wild strawberry, blackcurrant and loganberry. The middle notes include roses, blue freesias and lilac. The scent is completed with rosewood, white musk and vanilla. I have to admit at looking up those notes as I tend to just smell the fragrance as a whole and it is rare for me to identify the scents within it.
The bottle is rounded and has a silver trim round the top, with the words Kylie Minogue imprinted on it. The lid is then silver with a pink top. The actual perfume is a light pink colour. The bottle is very feminine looking and would look quite pretty sitting on your dressing table. A feature I also like about the bottle is that the bottom part where the perfume sits is clear glass so you are aware of how much you have left. I always have various bottles of perfume on the go so never seem to run out and be left with none to use but I know it would annoy me if I did!
In terms of how long the fragrance lasts it certainly doesn't last all day. I would say perhaps a few hours or so but as I tend to use this when I am just at home and have little to do it doesn't really bother me. I wouldn't use this fragrance for a night out for example.
I note that you can buy the fragrances on Amazon for the following prices:
However The Fragrance Shop are selling the set with the 30ml eau de toilette and a 150ml body lotion for just £9.99! I would say this is a great price and it would make a lovely gift for someone or just a nice treat for yourself.
I actually stumbled across this fragrance by accident, a distant relative bought it for my eighteenth birthday. As it's by Kylie Minogue, it isn't a fragrance I thought to buy for myself, as we tend to buy things by celebrities we're interested in, and I'm not a Kylie fan. However, I'm glad I received this gift, as the scent is beautiful! It's quite subtle, it isn't in your face and horribly strong. It's quite a fruity scent, yet also has a floral hint.
However, one thing I would have to criticise is the fact that, like most perfumes, the scent changes after a few hours of wearing it. I don't find this scent massively appealing once it has been on my skin for a while. I have found that it smells a bit like Johnson's baby lotion when it is left a while, which is a lovely smell but not what I want to smell like when I'm on a night out.
A fresh spray of the scent sorts this problem out though, so it isn't a huge problem.
I first smelt this perfume when I received it as a present from my cousin, last year. When I first took a sniff of this, I thought it wasn't for me, because of the sweetness of the perfume. But it did grow on me and I'm glad because it is now on of my favourite perfumes.
This perfume was launched in 2008
As soon as you spray this perfume, it smells very sweet. But after a few minutes this sweetness fades away and the fragrance becomes less over-powering with sweetness. The perfume has a lovely fruity smell that is a perfect summer fragrance. In the smell you can pick out the scents of strawberries and lots of other berry scents.
Showtime is a very girly fragrance and I would say that it isn't a very strong perfume, which is a good thing. I find that this fragrance does last a reasonable amount of time, the bottle are such a good size that it fits very easily into your handbag for some re-sprays.
The smell is a very uplifting and refreshing fragrance that I think can be worn during the day as well as night time.
Showtime comes in a pretty, dark pink box. The lid of Showtime is the same colour as the box, along with a silver colour around the rim and the neck of the bottle. Just below the lid of the bottle is engraved writing, that says Kylie Minogue showtime
The bottle itself is a rounded shape and the liquid is a light pink colour. Just like the perfume, the bottle is very girly and pretty.
I would defiantly recommended this perfume to anyone, who wants a sweet smelling, girly perfume and this perfume is one of my favourites. Although from looking in different shops and websites I have found that this isn't a cheap perfume.
A 30ml bottle of this can be bought for price ranging from £15.00- £20.00
I think this perfume is a lovely fragrance and is one of my favourite, however some people may find this perfume a little too sweet, but this is something I like perfumes to smell like. The only problem I have with this perfume is that it is quite expensive. But if you receive this perfume as a present like I did, then it isn't going to be a problem.
(The majority of my reviews are based around cosmetics and fragrances. It's been like that since I joined DooYoo though; I don't want to be seen as someone who is only doing it for the sake of getting more miles per review)

Kylie Minogue unveils her 3rd (and 4th) fragrance; SHOWTIME. There's the toilette version for the day, and then there's a parfum variant for the evening.
Scent wise the berries, blackcurrants and liquorice are sharper in the toilette. Still a sweet scent, but the fruity twist gives it more energy.
The lasting power is very poor.
SHOWTIME isn't anywhere near original; the liquorice and berries are very reminiscent to Pink Sugar, especially when coupled with the foody base notes. But I think Pink Sugar is more subtle then this, if you can believe that.

EDT scent notes
- - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Wild strawberry, loganberry, blackcurrant, roses, blue freesias, lilacs, tiare flowers, sweet liquorice, rosewood, white musk, pralines and vanilla.

It was inspired by a disco ball. It looks quite pretty in pictures, but is tacky and hard to grip in reality.

Other buying considerations
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
You can guess the staying power by now; Close to the skin within one hour and gone within two.
I was inpressed that for such a sweet fragrance it wasn't cloying. I've worn it in hotter weather with no ill effects.

SHOWTIME EDP is sweet and creamy in scent. The liquorice and berries are much milder then the EDT, allowing the toffee to take center stage. Sadly the effect is short ived; the lasting power is as poor as the toilette version.
It is made of different scent notes to the EDT and there is another difference between the two... Glitter. Yep. The EDP contains flecks of gold glitter.
Scent notes; Cranberry, strawberry and blackcurrant, powdery heliotrope, liquorice, creamy toffee, exotic wood and vetiver.

LOL: It sounds like I just have it in for Kylie's perfumes doesn't it? I honestly just find them all unoriginal and uninspired, with very poor staying power. The designers don't seem to be putting in any real effort with them.
Given a choice between the EDT and the EDP, I prefer the EDP. Despite the unoriginalness and poor staying power, I'd still be tempted to re-buy it if it weren't for the gold glitter. It falls of your skin, and trails everywhere, like you're a little pixie.

The EDT is available as 30ml, 50ml and 75ml. The EDP is only available as 30ml.
SHOWTIME is being a hard find on the high street, but most online retailer sell it, all bottle sizes are usually under £20. The EDP is harder to find, but is usually under £25.
Kylie Minogue is obviously a well known pop star and in the time she has to spare, she came up with the idea of branding her own perfume! Kylie Minogue brought out 'Show Time' Eau de Toilette for women quite a long time ago and it smells great!
As you can see from the picture above, this perfume comes in a clear bottle with pink coloured perfume inside it. It has a great lid with silver on the side and a lovely pink gem on top! This makes it extra girly! The box is also well presented as it is pink and matches the theme of the bottle.
The Price and Place to Buy!
You can purchase this perfume for £13.00 from Ebay for the 30ml bottle. This is also available in boots and other beauty and perfume stores! To my surprise, this is also sold in Wilkinson's and is on offer at the moment for £7.98!! This would make a good Christmas present!
The Perfume Itself...
This innovate new scent is fruity and floral for a woman who loves life and loves to be smelt! A cocktail of wild strawberry, loganberry and blackcurrant with roses, blue freesias and lilacs with overtones of sweet liquorice all balanced with magnetic notes of rosewood, white musk and a vanilla accord!!! Could this get any better, this perfume basically makes you smell like roses!
I love this perfume because it makes you smell really feminine and girly. It is a popular perfume and it is also really good value for money. It stays on your clothes and is perfect to spray on in the morning.
It is quite strong.
This would probably suit the more mature kind of woman because it is not to sweet and modern.
5/5 from me!
One of Kylie Minogue's fragrance range, Show-time is a fruity floral perfume that suits a cheery, smiley, happy-go-lucky person.
It has notes of berries including blackcurrant and strawberry, roses, vanilla, white musk and liquorice. I'm sure others can pick out more of the notes but alas this is the most my nose can do!
To me this perfume smells almost fizzy, like Pink Lady apples - and makes a great night time scent for going out or for uplifting a gloomy mood on a bad day. This perfume makes a grey day seem brighter.
It lasts very well on the skin, still smelling it at the end of the day on myself is the ultimate test of a perfumes longevity so if I've applied it at 7am and can still smell it at 10pm without having knocked people out by using more than two spritzes then it is good value for money.
This scent won't suit everybody; it's the sort of perfume that needs some confidence to pull off as it is quite distinctive. As Kylie herself says if someone walks past her wearing it she can tell instantly. This would make a good signature scent for someone who likes something a little glam and a little quirky.
Showtime is a very nice perfume. To be honest with you it isnt my favourite but it is very nice!
I got this for a birthday present last year. I dont really like getting perfume from people as they may be me a fragrance that i am not to keen on. But this one was a hit! Well done to them!
When i saw that it was called 'Showtime' i imagined a very strong convincing smell. But it was completly the oppisite. So dont be put of by the name.
Starting on the good points it has a very sweet fresh smell. It is ideal for a handbag perfume because it isn't large and it is a neat sized bottle.
But the bad points are that out of all of my perfumes i own this smell doesnt stay for long. So if you are going out for a long time then i would reccomend to wear an other perfume which lasts longer. It also as i have already mentioned it is misleading with the name.
There other perfumes which i like better but there are definitly ones i like worse.
Kylie Minogue showtime delivered an unexpected scent for me, because from the word showtime i expected quite a strong brash scent but it isn't. The box is a shade of red/purple with streaks across it, its a simple cube box, then the bottle is really small and delicate with a rounded body, which is clear but with a redish tint throughout, topped off with a simple rounded lid with the same coloured tint,on a whole the bottle is really feminine. The scent includes the following notes wild strawberry,loganberry and blackberry, leading to roses and lilacs with magnetic notes of white musk and praline. The scent was like a journey because when i first sprayed it i didn't get this big burst of fruitiness like i was expecting, the scent at first was really quite subtle, but throughout the day it developed and although the scent wasn't strong it wasn't so subtle that i couldn't smell it, it was just right. The scent went from a fruity to floral one which i liked because all the notes complemented each other very well. This fragrance is very long lasting a couple of sprays will last all day and that's without the scent fading, also the fragrance isn't sticky like some when sprayed it nicely blends into the skin. Prices range from around £10 for a 30ml bottle and up to £20 for a 75ml, and the fragrance can be bought at stores including boots and the perfume shop and online at fragrance direct and amazon.To sum this fragrance up i would describe it as a subtle journey from fruity to floral in a day.
This has such a cute little bottle!!! It's very low and clad in silver and pink. It's so pretty you really don't want to put it away and hide it!!!
Being a celebrity endorsed perfume I am surprised I haven't seen very much promotion for it (nowhere near as much as KM's first perfume Darling), although saying that I have seen some magazine ads (big photos of Kylie dominate the page). Her name is also imprinted on the bottle right above the perfume name. The price tag (£15 for 30ml after a quick search) is pretty much standard with others.
The pink and pretty bit gives away the fragrance slightly!
The fragrance is quite sweet, very sugary and flowery. There is also definitely vanilla it in. Although a hint of fruit (more berries than citrus), its definitely more of a floral theme.
I only spray the perfume once and doesn't feel I needed any more (the spray mechanism is quite strong (it runs down my neck!!! Be careful of spritzing too much.) This lasts for a good proportion of the day without refreshing.
Showtime - Eau De Toilette (Coty) perfume is my third favourite perfume of Kylie's and shes done five now. I got the 75ml bottle for xmas last year. It's a very nice, yet sweet perfume. When i first smelled it i needed a little time to 'get it'. After falling in love with her first two fragrance's which were more stronger, this sweeter one was a shocker. However it lasts a lot longer than her first one 'Darling', it kinda lingers for a good few hours after. It's not over-powering just right.
One thing i absolutely adore about this perfume is the packaging. It comes in a deep pink shimmering box with kylie minogue on it and 'Showtime' written in sexy white writing underneath. I was instantly attracted to the box. The bottle is very nicely shaped, very round pink with a slight tint, with a classy silver lid. I find it pretty girly.
The fragrance is a very fruity-floral scent and contails a cocktail of wild strawberry, blackcurrant, loganberry, roses, blue freesias and lilacs. You can also smell the Liquorice. Also contains white musk and a vanilla.
You can buy this perfume now for £19.56 at The Perfume Shop, or for the 30ml Bottle you can get that at Amazon from £10. I seriosuly recommend you ladies buy this perfume.
Most of us know Kylie minogue who is a singer, well she released more than just songs over her career as a singer. She managed to produce a couple of fragrances, which one of them I managed to own.
Kylie minogue showtime is a lovely scented perfume that comes well packaged in a bright pink box.
The perfume itself comes in a thick colourless bottle which is silver on top and written 'kylie minogue show time''.
The perfume bottle is nicely shaped into descending rectangles, which almost look like a disco ball. The rectangle shaped bottle actually is helpful as it provides grip, thus stopping the bottle from slipping from your hands and smashing on to the floor.
The lid is pink and silver in colour, the top of the lid is diamond shaped and almost looks like a disco ball like the rest of the bottle. The design of the bottle does make you feel like a super star.
The lid fits to the bottle very tightly, thus stopping it from falling, the lid is kind of big thus making it easy to find it when it drops. The perfume is easy to apply as it has a spray nozzle, which can be easily pressed down without a lot of effort and off you go.
The kylie minogue time show perfume comes in four sizes which are 30ml, 50ml, 75ml and 100ml and like many fragrances it was manufactured in Paris.
The perfume itself is light pink in colour. The perfume smells very floral and the smell is thick. The smell consist of roses, wild strawberry, blackcurrant, tiare flowers, sweet liquorice, blue frasias, lilacs which when mixed gives a sensual sexy smell.
The smell of the perfume is very strong and really does dazzle the people around you which is why I love this perfume. I have had comments from strangers whom I walked past in the streets who seemed to be interested in my smell. I can smell the perfume without even opening the lid, it even smells stronger when I open the lid and spray it on myself.
I only spray a little bit as the perfume does have a strong fragrance that lasts for a long time, unlike the britney spears perfume which I own as well.
The fragrance really is charming, the fragrance stays on my clothes until the day I wash them, which is rather impressive.
I tend to wear the Kylie minogue perfume when I go out, as it's very strong, so when I am on the dance floor, you can't smell my sweat and I don't have to rush to the toilet to spray some more after a few seconds of dancing. I guess that is why it is called show time, because you can host your show and be in the spotlight for a long time, and you can be smelled from a distance.
I bout my Kylie Minogue showtime for £22.99 from the perfume shop. I thought for a 30ml bottle this was rather expensive, but the smell was worth it. However because it was six months ago when I bought it, you could find this perfume for a lot less nowadays.
What I did not like about the kylie minogue showtime 30ml is that it did not last that long, I would have expected it to last a longer time as I paid a lot for the perfume.
The perfume only lasted a month, therefore if you would like it to last long I would suggest you buy the bigger bottles, which tend to cost more though. Another disadvantage is that, sometimes when I spray the perfume I tend to sneeze, suggesting that I may be allergic to one of the ingredients, but that doesn't stop from using the perfume.
I would recommend this perfume to all the ladies out there who want to smell gorgeous everyday. The perfume last long, smells nice though it costs quiet a lot but all is worth it in the end.
The perfume should last long if you buy the bigger bottles as one spray will take you a long way, mine finished quick because I bought the 30ml as the bigger bottles were expensive. I will definitely be buying this fragrance again in the near future.
---You can get the Kylie minogue showtime as a gift pack which will include a 150ml lotion to go along with the perfume. This tends to cost more though, but will be a good Christmas present for someone.
---Kylie minogue only specializes in women fragrances, so unlucky guys.
---You can buy kylie time show from many shops including boots, online, perfume etc, prices do vary though, so always good to research before you buy.
---Check if you are not allergic to any of the ingredients, as this perfume makes me sneeze at times.
In short, this is one of the most adorable, sweet, fruity and overwhelming fragrances you will ever smell. For those who prefer more musky or florally scents, this perfume is probably not for you.
Presentation of the product is minimalistic but in such a snazzy way.
The box this perfume comes in is a mixture of dark and bright sections of pink spreading from the centre of the box to the outer edge. The bottle is pink and silver, totally in theme with the vibe of the perfume.
Now for the important part, the smell. This perfume is a gorgeous mixture of strawberry, loganberry, blackcurrant, roses, blue freesias, lilacs, tiare flowers, sweet liquorice, rose wood, white musk and vanilla.
This list of ingredients may sound like a pretty overwhelming mixture, but I assure you, this works, really well. And thankfully, the scent lasts over a long period of time.
This perfume was one of my favourites throughout university, because to be honest, the smell is quite similar to a really good, sweet cocktail that you can imagine drinking all summer long.
A fantastic thing about this perfume, is that it's light enough to be worn for day time, and dramatic enough for a night out.
One negative about this perfume is that although it has been out for quite a few months, it's still quite pricey in many places (with Boots selling 75ml for £34.50). However, for a perfume like this I would say it is well worth it.
