My mother is always quite good at receiving samples of luxury goodies,she does actually try before she buys. This is mainly due to having sensitive skin (and me too) it just would not be good economy to lash out on a product to discover an intolerance to it. I was lucky enough to receive a sample of Oui, before I purchased and that was great, I did actually use the sample and go back for more. Top French cosmetic house Lancome do produce a number of perfumes which have varying degrees of popularity and also styles. "Magie Noire" and "O de Lancome" are two of their earlier manufactured perfumes which are still very very popular Oui came along later, with a unique fragrance which is very contemporary,but elegant. Oui is attractively packaged, it arrives boxed and sellophane wrapped. The perfume bottle has modern styling, and is luxurious with its frosted glass bottle with chic understated elegance.. The vapouriser comes in three sizes 30mls, 50mls and 75 mls. When I purchased I opted for the 30ml size. The vaporiser is easy to use and efficient not a flimsy squirter that drops off into the sink as you prepare to go out, leaving you disappointed and perfumeless in the bathroom. The spray is evenly distributed in a fine mist, rather than a blast. The perfume itself is light and fresh, not heavy at all. The fresh smell is the top note of clementine-hedione, a citrus blend which is very refreshing. The middle note is composed and blended from apples, pears and pineapples, and white flower petals, this accounts for the perfume's sweeter side. The bottom note or base of the perfume is from the stargazer lily (doesnt that sound gorgeous ?). I think Oui would appeal to most, it isn't ageist, it could well suit someone of twenty to someone of eighty. If they like a fresh aroma. It does lighten your spirits, the ingredients are ge
nerous the perfume lasts well (as long as the basics of perfume care are adhered to). It does'nt lose it freshness over time. It is not a cheap perfume to buy, it retails around £26.00 for the 50ml size bottle, but the ingredients are not skimped on and they are great quality. Oui would make a beautiful gift and a wonderful gift to receive. If you are allergic to some perfumes its always worth having a chat with your local Lancome consultant to obtain a sample. Lancome do generally refund customers if they are not satisfied with their purchase, but I would rather go with trying a sample than to put up with the inconvience of an allergic reaction, or being disappointed as you had to return the product. Overall an excellent buy.Highly recommended but remember always test the perfume first, on clean dry skin and leave for a few hours to allow the perfume to suffuse with the natural aroma of your skin.Remembering that each perfume will reacts with the individuals body chemistry, creating a unique aroma.
I got the latest Lancome perfume - Oh Oui! - last Christmas as a gift for my Mum, and when I got a whiff of it I really loved it to so invested in a bottle. The perfume comes in quite eye catching packaging. There is a white and silver box and the bottle itself is a translucent white colour with attractive little details engraved on the bottle. The scent is quite flowery, refreshing and light. It's ideal for wearing anytime of day or night. It's quite a summery scent too! I find that it is very long lasting in terms of the scent, but I also have quite a lot left in the bottle too. The reason for this is the perfume is a bit too overpowering if you put a lot on, so just a little spray is enough. I didn't find the perfume irritated my skin. I'd definetely go for this perfume again. It's mid range price (£19 for 30ml) and sleek modern packaging makes it quite appealing I guess. It definetely gets the thumbs up from both me and my Mum.
