Lee Stafford - Pink. Eau de Toilette Spray for Women
Pink is one of the perfumes or as it is also known, Eau de Toilette (I'm not sure if there is a difference between the two!) for women available in the Lee Stafford range.
I didn't actually choose to buy Pink as I first received it as a gift from my nan for my birthday a couple of years ago, and for each birthday and Christmas since then. Until I received this perfume I had never heard of Lee Stafford, however, since receiving it I have started to see it more often in the shops and although I see a small range of perfumes and body sprays the main Lee Stafford products I see are hair products. My nan apparently chose this because she knows I am a big fan of the singer Pink and she thought there may be some kind of connection, I should now point out that there is no connection at all!
Pink comes packed in a shiny silver coloured rectangle box with 'Pink' written along the side in large pink capital letters. Inside the box is a simple looking round glass bottle with round translucent plastic lid. In my opinion the bottle isn't exciting or pretty in any way and looks very plain nice sitting on our bathroom shelf. In some ways the design of the bottles reminds me of the cheap perfumes you can buy for young children who are playing dress up. The bottle also has the same large pink letters printed vertically along it and some contact information printed on the back of the bottle in small pink letters.
How Does It Smell?
Pink has quite a strong and almost intrusive smell to it, yet I still find that I do quite like it. I would describe the smell as being feminine but not in the sense of flowery and light, it is more of a tangy and quite refeshing smell which I would say wont really be to everyone's liking as some days it can really get up my nose and make me feel a bit sneezey, but it is still a nice scent.
I used to wear this perfume on a daily basis as I really liked it, however over the last few months I have found myself drawn to other perfumes in the bathroom and I am using this one less and less. I do still like the smell, however I find that due to it being rather strong I have to be in the right kind of mood to wear it.
I find that if I spray Pink on myself when I get dressed in the morning, it will last for around 3 to 4 hours, at which point I find that I need to re-apply this perfume as it doesn't seem to linger in a more subtle way, it just seems to disappear as if I hadn't applied it in the first place. While I would usually find this quite inconvenient as I am not really a person who carries perfumes around with me, I don't mind so much with this one as I actually have a smaller bottle of it which fits nicely in my bag without adding too much weight or taking up too much space.
I think there is a slight 'choke factor' to this scent and I have often choked myself by accidentally spraying too much. In the choke situation I find that the perfume leaves a rather nasty taste in my mouth and I have to do an emergency bathroom evacuation for a couple of minutes. So I would recommend a bit of caution if you don't want to choke yourself and passers by, by accident.
As this perfume has always been given to me as a gift I cannot ask my nan how much she pays for it, however I have seen it in the shops for around £6 - £7 for a 30ml bottle. I think this is a reasonable price as the fragrance is quite strong so you don't need to use too much on each application and even if you re-apply it you wont need too many sprays to be able to sufficiently smell it.
Would I Recommend?
While it is no longer my favourite perfume, I would definitely still recommend Pink, it is a tangy scent which I enjoy wearing from time to time and at the moment I do have a bit of a back log of bottles due to not wearing it so much these days so I may start wearing it again as now I have reviewed it I have remembered how much I used to enjoy wearing it.
