      I must try more M&S fragrances

      The fragrance
      - - - - - - - - - - -

      I never thought of Marks & Spenser as being a valid fragrance retailer, but they've just proven me wrong for being snobbish. I tried this on in the store and returned a few hours later to buy some.


      SUNNY DAZE is very fresh and juicy on first application, the passion fruit is the strongest note here. I normally find passion fruit too sweet, but the zesty orange tones it down and prevents it from becoming too sickly. I can also pick up the coconut immediately too, so they must have used it in the top and heart of the fragrance too, rather then just in the base.

      As the other fruits dry down the coconut becomes stronger, semi-masking the mild floral notes. I get a hint of orange blossom, but can't detect the frangipani. The heart seems slightly powdery to me, so there probably are other florals here, but I can't tell for sure.

      The sandalwood is indeed creamy and really enhances the coconut, which is again the starring scent note.

      The bottle

      The 25ml comes is a clear, cylinder spray bottle. The fragrance name is printed on the bottle. This is the perfect shape and size for tossing in your bag or carrying in a pocket.

      The 100ml comes in a clear, rectangular bottle, with a gold cap. The 100ml was out of stock when I went shopping, so I don't know if there is no writing or pattern on the bottle, like the picture shows.

      The lasting power averages between 3 to 4 hours, which I think is good for such an inexpensive EDT.

      This is obviously a fragrance for warmer weather. The fruit isn't too sweet and the florals are mild, so you could wear this to the beach without any ill effects from the sun. It's too mild and reminiscent of sunn holidays and suntan lotion to wear in colder weather.

      I feel comfortable wearing this to work, but some people may think it's too relaxed and informal. It's doesn't seem to be offensive to others, so if you like it then go for it.

      My opinion

      It may not be the longest lasting and some people may find it unsophisticated, but it's inexpensive and the packaging is very travel friendly so I'm sold.

      I know that the M&S fragrances are meant to mimic more expensive fragrances, but it's actually Harajuku Lovers G that this instantly reminded me off. After an hour's wear I also was reminded of J.Lo's Miami Glow. No designer brands spring to mind. Since it's cheaper, bigger and longer lasting then G, as well as being easier to find then Miami Glow I'm very happy.
