“ Brand: Parfums Love / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Toilette / Gender: for women „
Parfums Love 'You and Me' is a pleasant body spray that I would particularly recommend for young girls who are wanting to use perfumes and body sprays for the first time. It has a cute, childish and colourful design that is attractive to the buyer, with alternating thick and thin stripes of pretty pastel colours and a central purple love heart design around the words 'You & Me' which is printed in white block capitals. 'Parfums Love' is written above the heart graphic in capitals and in a purple, slightly narrower typeface . The design is rather reminiscent of sweets, in particular Swizzels Matlow Love Hearts, and that proves very appropriate, as the scent of the spray itself is fruity and smells a little like sweets. It is this 'sweets' theme in particular that makes me recommend it for the younger user.
The scent is pleasing when used as a light spritzer on the neck and/or wrists, with hints of tropical fruits such as mango, papaya and pineapple being able to be detected. It is agreeable without being overly heavy or musky. The scent is long-lasting, and is still present on the skin after a number of hours of wear.
The product is a very convenient size for transporting it around in a make-up bag or purse, and is good value for money, as the 50ml can tends to retail for just £1. My only criticism of the product is that its scent can become unpleasant or overpowering if over-sprayed.
~As light as a body spray - at a similar cost!~
This little fragrance that is marketed as an EDT spray called Parfums Love You and Me is something that I was given as part of a gift collection, which also included the matching mini body sprays. The photo shown here is in fact one of the mini sprays and is not the EDT spray that I will be reviewing, although it does at least offer a hint as to what the product looks like if wanting to locate it in store.
The small and simple fragrance bottle that this comes in is made from a simple smooth clear glass that is easy to pick up and handle when spraying on a little of the fragrance. The lid of the bottle has a simple click on and off lid that works well enough and even though it does have a cheap plasticy feel to it, I found that it was easy to take off or place back onto the fragrance bottle when needed. The heart shaped finish was cute and quirky and reminded me of pastel coloured love heart sweeties, giving the fragrance a young fresh appeal that would suit younger fragrance wearers well.
The spray applicator was simply formed and provided an easy quick way to spray a little fragrance onto the skin and whilst the spray pattern did not deliver a luxurious feeling fine mist, it did an adequate job of delivering a good amount of fragrance on demand. I found that the small sized 15ml bottle that I was given was a good size to slip into a bag or pocket, with it being compact enough not to take up too much space if taking it out and about during the day, when top up sprays were needed in order to keep the fragrance going on the skin.
~A young, fresh and light fragrance~
When wearing this I felt it had a young fresh but not overly feminine floral feel, that was very close to the body spray of the same name and in use the longevity of the fragrance was not all that much different to the body spray product. In terms of the feel of the fragrance I found it very similar to the smell of some of the floral Impulse body sprays, as it gave a similar sweet and light floral feel when sprayed lightly onto the skin. I didn't find the fragrance to be all that long lasting in wear, which was to be expected considering it is a budget priced product.
The fragrance was one that could be used as a light all over body spritz and considering the small size of the product bottle it did last a good few weeks even with regular wear. Thankfully even though the fragrance lacked staying power it was easily topped up with a little more fragrance which allowed it to continue for a few extra hours on the skin. The slight sweetness of this fresh floral fragrance made it suited as a day wear fragrance, or for use as an all over body spritz for anytime usage.
~Rating and price~
At around £1.99 for 15mls the cost of the fragrance is fair, as it is no more than many similarly scented products that are sold as all over body sprays. As far as rating the product I feel it was easy to wear as a light slightly sweet day time floral that reminded me heavily of some of the floral Impulse body sprays with slightly less staying power and is deserving of a 2 star product rating.
