“ Brand: Marks & Spencer / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette / Gender: for women „
My mam recently gave me this perfume as she said she liked it in the shop but once she got it home and wore it she changed her mind so she thought I might as well have it rather than it going to waste. The perfume is from Per Una and is aptly called the same name, this is a Marks and Spencer's brand therefore can only be bought from one of their stores or online.
The perfume that I have is this that is pictured however I have the purse spray and matching body spray, the purse spray holds 25mls and it costs £4 which I think is a decent price and I also think purse sprays are a great idea as it lets you carry your favourite perfumes around with you but also allows you to try out a perfume to see if you like it.
This perfume comes in a long thin glass bottle and has a push on gold top on it which is a pretty tight fit which is great as you are meant to be carrying this around in your handbag so you wouldn't want the lid to come off. The bottle is very simple it has the name of it on the front in pink along with a little diamond pattern around it and that is all.
The description of the perfume is "Flowers of magnolia, rose and summer freesias mingle with a background of sensuous woods, heliotrope and patchouli to give an added depth" I personally can smell roses and other flowers combined but there is only roses I can pick out, I also find this quite a musky perfume which I quite like. One spray of perfume is plenty and the first time I used it I sprayed too much and it really wasn't very nice as it was far too overpowering, I learnt from my mistake and only use one spray now and I only use it on my wrists as it's too strong to have on my neck as it's too close to my nose.
I quite like the smell of this perfume however it is simply too strong, the perfume has decent staying power and would say it is about 5-6 hours before I can no longer detect it. I will use the perfume as it's not so bad that I would waste it however I certainly wouldn't buy it again I like a perfume that I can smell but this one is over the top so only 3 stars from me.
