I have always been obsessed with perfumes. I remember when I was around 10 I used to have a collection of 'kids' perfumes. Even now, my collection of perfumes is rather large and takes up a huge amount of space on my dressing table. I like to try new ones and am always adding to my collection. One perfume which I recently tried is this one: Paris Hilton; Fairy Dust.
Paris Hilton; Fairy Dust is available in the following bottles:
30ml (£8.38, Amazon)
50ml (£10.59, Amazon)
100ml (£12.98, Amazon)
Top Notes: Peony and Orange Blossom
Middle Notes: Gardenia, Lotus and Peach
Base Notes: Patchouli, Musk and Vanilla
The bottle is kinda cute looking I guess. Although it just screams 'childish' at me. It is a great perfume bottle for a children's perfume, although I do not like it as an adult's perfume as it looks too 'cheap and nasty'.
Hmmmm!! To be honest I didn't really like this perfume. It was given to me as a gift and so therefore I had no 'say' in it. It is quite spicy and I am not too keen on the 'Gardenia' and 'Lotus' notes as they are a bit to 'clean' to me. I don't find them to be pleasant scents. I think it could do with being a little bit sweeter; not too much, but just enough to balance out the 'florally' scent.
The perfume starts off with being quite light and fresh smelling. However, after around half an hour or so it turns into a heavy 'musky' and strong smelling 'vanilla' scent. It reminds me of an old lady's perfume, as it is very mature smelling.
I had expected the perfume to be like Paris Hilton's other perfume; sweet, girly and fun although this one is very mature and doesn't seem to fit in with her other scents (or her fan base) at all.
The perfume does have good lasting power; it lasts all day. But why is it that perfumes I like wear off very quickly, and perfumes I don't like last all day!! Due to it's lasting power (if you like the smell of this perfume) then I would say that it is good value for money, just that it isn't to my taste (or should I say smell?!)
All in all, no I won't be buying this perfume again!
Thanks for reading!

I have a few of the Paris Hilton scents. This one is called "Fairy Dust" and I purchased it around two years ago. I still have around 10% of it left.
The scent is a fruity floral scent. The packaging is nice enough but nothing special, although I do like the fairy image on the bottle and the lid is nice and secure. I do like my perfume lids to be secure and thankfully this one is! The scent smells strong when it's first sprayed. I disliked it initially due to the fact that it smells so strong at first. However, once the perfume has had a few minutes to settle down it does start to smell rather nice. The mix of exotic notes come together to deliver a gorgeous feminine fragrance. This really is a beautiful scent. I would describe it as an exotic fruity floral.
The scent isn't as light and fresh as the previous Paris Hilton scents. However, this means that it's a nice evening scent due to the fact that it is a little heavier. I can spray a few squirts of this during the morning and by late afternoon I can still detect it. It does need a top up in the evening but overall the staying power of the fragrance is rather impressive, especially for a "celebrity" fragrance.
I do believe that this is the most "mature" scent that Paris has come up with. My mum is in her sixties yet she has a bottle of this on her dressing table! It'd make a nice gift and the box it comes in is really pretty.
A heavier (but nice!) scent from Paris Hilton.
Today I want to tell you all about a perfume I got for christmas last year - Paris Hilton's Fairy Dust eau de parfum!
Paris Hilton's flowerbed
When my parents asked me what I would like for christmas, this perfume was among the things I mentioned - and as you see, I got it! Thanks, mum and dad!!
I've already had three different fragrances by Paris Hilton and I loved them all. I still re-buy the first one whenever I see it on offer. Now I wanted to try out Fairy Dust as well. The packaging and the name itself already appealed to me and I was sure I'd enjoy it.
The packaging and the bottle
The packaging is a real eyecatcher on itself. The little box is dark blue, showing Paris Hilton dressed up as a fairy on the frint. She even has fairy wings and a wand! The pefume's name is written in silver and you can feel it stand out when you run your fingers across the box.
Upon removing the first cover, you get to see the actual box. This one doesn't show Miss Hilton herself, but is covered in silver stars which are also pressed into the cardboard. This is true bling! "Fairy Dust by Paris Hilton" is written all over it and on the back of the packaging you'll find the manufacturer's adress and the list of ingredients. From the inside, the box is of a turquoise colour.
The bottle contains 100ml and has a giant cap measuring 15cm just by itself! It is shaped like a fan and looks quite classy. The bottle has a fairy's silouette lasered into it, which looks really cute and fancy. The spraying-bit is truquoise as well.
The bottle itself, as you can see, is quite amazing just by itself.
I was quite surprised when I first smelt it. The scents Paris Hilton has done so far are all quite sweet and were clearly created for a young, girly audience. Fairy Dust is a much more grown up composition. It smells quite classy and very floral. It has a slightly woody edge, but this comes across as quite natural and fitting.
According to the official description, the fragrance contains "pink peony, orange blossom, water lily, peach nectar, cashmere musk and vanilla" (Amazon.co.uk) and is supposed to be the perfect scent for spring. This description actually fits the scent well - it's light, flowery, dreamy but somewhat grown up.
I think this perfume really suits people who don't like too sweet scents but don't wan to go for sporty or oriental scents.
How long will it last?
As it's a 100ml, the bottle will last you a long way. I've used it a couple of times now and the bottle doesn't even look like I've used the perfume at all.
How long does it stay on my skin?
I was quite impressed with how long I still smelt like it. After a couple of hours, I could stell make out the fresh flowery scent on my skin. But, of course, how long a scent stays on also depends on the person wearing it.

To my surprise, the perfume is not too expensive. As far as I know, eau de parfum is usually the most expensive type of scent.
On Amazon.co.uk, 100ml of Fairy Dust are £16.98. The 50ml bottle costs £11.95.
I defenitely liked this scent, but I don't love it as much as I liked Paris Hilton's self-named first fragrance or her sweet perfume "Can Can", so I won't be handing out five stars - but I'd defenitely recommend this too anyone who likes flowery scents that aren't too sweet!
I bought myself this Perfume a couple of months ago. I've had all the Paris Hilton Perfumes over the years and although I don't care much about the brand or the lady herself I have to say the Perfumes are nice smelling, quite cheap considering and just alright. I would say the target market for the scents are probably teenagers but if you like light and fresh scented perfumes then this should be ideal for you. Then again some of the notes aren't that Light.
I got a 100ml bottle of this for £21, which I thought was a good price. The recommended retail price of this according to online is around £40, which seems a bit expensive since this isn't a proper brand name, but I would be happy to pay anything around £25 for this.
The box and bottle look alright, I do like the name of it. Fairy Dust, sounds pretty nice doesn't it. The bottle is nothing special if you look at the Dooyoo picture. I would have thought that the Bottle could have been that bit more special looking. The lid looks a bit cheap in my view and the colouring of the Perfume made me think of a heavier floral kind of scent.
So how does this smell? Not quite how I thought it would smell. The notes in here are Water lily, Peach nectar, Sparkling Prosecco, Pink Peony, Orange Blossom, Sueded Patchouli, Vanilla Cream and Cashmere Musk. Sounds like a bit of a mixture and it is, but it all goes together well. I think the Water Lily scent is 1 of the main ones, but you can smell the Pink Peony and the Vanilla Cream adds that bit sweetness to this.
This lasts a long enough time as well. I still reapplied this around lunch time but I could still smell the hint of this on my wrists when I went to spray it again.
A really nice scent at a good price. If you like the lighter Paris Hilton Perfumes then you should try this one.
I would never have gone into a shop and purchased a Paris Hilton perfume on my accord. I have never overly liked her and she comes across as very fake and it has just put me off of any of her products. I actually won this perfume in a raffle (I actually said at the time that it was just my luck to win it seeing as I had no interest in ever getting it!) and I didn't want to turn my prize down so I thought I may as well give it a go especially seeing as I had won it rather than paid anything for it!
I won the 100ml bottle of Fairy Dust but after a little bit of research for this review I found that it also comes in 30ml and 50ml bottles. Each bottle will set you back £11, £13 and £18 respectively which isn't too bad.
It comes in a blackish blue box which is rectangular. It has "Fairy Dust by Paris Hilton" printed in a shiny silver cursive font. There are little diamond look glints all over the box which I assume are supposed to represent Fairy Dust. The box is a little bit gimmicky.
Inside the box there is the bottle. I surprised myself by admitting that I actually liked the bottle and found myself placing it in full view on my dressing table. The bottle itself doesn't have the name of the perfume on it or Paris Hilton so this is a plus! It does have a picture of a fairy lasered into the glass which I really liked. I like fairies and mythical things like that. The perfume bottle is shaped so that it is slim at the bottom and then squares out as it reaches the neck of the bottle. The glass is clear as is the liquid of the perfume. It would have been nice for the perfume to have been a little glittery or something as the name "Fairy Dust" seems to be lost aside from the laser picture on the body of the bottle.
Around the neck there is a silver ring which states the name of the perfume and Paris Hilton in joined up font. It looks fancy but it is really small and not noticeable. The lid of the perfume is diamond shaped and you can see the nozzle inside the bottle which is bright metallic blue. The bottle is pretty simple and looks nice on the dressing table.
The perfume is nothing else but floral so if you don't like Paris Hilton and you don't like floral smells then steer well clear! It is made up of scent notes of pink peony, orange blossom, spring gardenia, water lily, peach nectar, sueded patchouli, cashmere musk and vanilla cream. The vanilla cream really stands out and mixes beautifully with the water lily and peach nectar. It is a very sweet floral smell and it does make me think of Tinkerbell and how she would smell if she were real! The scent is very strong and can be quite heady - it doesn't affect me but I cannot wear this perfume around my Mum as it gives her a headache as soon as she smells it. The cashmere musk settles the perfume down into a nice and expensive smelling scent.
The perfume is very girly and flowery which is what I generally associate with fairies so it definately lives up to its name.
You do not need to spray alot of this perfume as it is not subtle in any way, shape or form! A couple of squirts is all you need. It is one of those perfumes that if you walk in a breeze everyone knows you are wearing it as everyone will catch a whiff of it! I got a scarf out from last winter which was when I last wore this perfume and I could still smell the perfume almost as clearly as I would be able to if I sprayed it today! Staying power wise, this perfume lasts all day long without the need of any extra applications.
Sadly, I have to admit that I do love this perfume despite it being a Paris Hilton branded product. I do hate to admit it but I really do like it and it is a regular perfume I wear during the winter so it will be coming out again in the next week. I highly recommend it (I can't believe I am saying that!) and would definately say do not be put off by the fact it's by Paris Hilton!
I am quite a fan of celebrity perfumes, so I first tried Paris Hilton's 'Fairy Dust' when it came out in 2008.
I got this as a gift and would have never bought it for myself as the packaging to my mind was hideous and I wouldn't want to waste my money on something that came in a horrible starry sky-ed box. The plain transparent glass bottle has a frosted fairy etched onto the side of the bottle which I also wasn't keen on but the smell of the perfume is more important than the packaging!
This perfume on first spray, is quite floral but I could also smell peaches to it, which was very sweet. The smell was infact a bit overpowering at first but it died down quickly and the other floral smells came through better.
I could still smell a fruity peach aroma even after the other floral notes had cropped up, and although this was nice, I felt that the perfume had a slightly cheap smell to it, and was quite artificial.
After about an hour, I could smell more muskier aromas in the perfume and I could smell a little patchouli which I liked. However, I found that after only 2 hours after application, I couldn't smell the perfume on my skin at all, which was disappointing. I want perfume to last on my skin, so for me, Fairy Dust wasn't great. Teenagers and younger women may really like this fragrance, but for me it wasn't classy enough and although the fragrance was nice enough, the poor staying power combined with the awful packaging, means I would not recommend this.
A 30ml bottle of this perfume costs around £21, a 50ml costs around £26
and a 100ml bottle costs around £38. Considering the staying power, I don't consider this to be very good vaue either.
Really the Dooyoo points change couldnt have come at a better time for me especially fragrance wise. My friend has recently started working in one of the perfume shops in town and she has started getting absolutely loads of free samples from work - she has been given them not stolen them LOL. And because she gets so many she has been passing a lot on to me especially the ones which Ive dropped not so subtle hints about such as this one "Paris Hilton - Fairy Dust" she gave me a tiny sample bottle of this last week and I started using it straight away - and have been ever since so I thought Id try reviewing it today. I am a big fan of Paris Hilton's perfumes as Ive been wearing the very first one she made (can think of the name how bad is that!) for years now and even though I dont like her particularly her perfumes always smell great so dont judge a perfume by its "celebrity" endorser LOL.
As I mentioned I only have a little sample bottle of this so I dont actually own the proper bottle but Ill try to comment on it and describe it as much as I can. This bottle design seems to be a little more grown up than her previous designs and even though I thought that this was originally aimed at teenagers I could be totally wrong because this bottle seems much classier and grown up. The bottle is more or less transparent and reminds me of a frosted window - the little fairy engraving on the front is super cute and very feminine. Im going back to actually buy a full bottle of this perfume soon and I think this bottle will make a great addition to my dressing table and the same goes for women of all ages. A bit more grown up but with a girly side.
Now I am always at a loss when it comes to describing the smell of perfumes to me they are either nice or not but I think Im going to need a little more detail than that LOL. Now at first I did expect this to smell a lot like other offerings from Paris:really sweet, fruity and girly but that is like the total opposite of this one. When you first spray it you do get a really sweet almost peachy scent which I will say can be quite overpowering but that very quickly dies down into a really floral fragrance. Ive done a little research online and found that the notes in this perfume are actually: Pink Peony, Orange Blossom, Vanilla Cream, Cashmere Musk & Water Lily amongst others and now Ive read that and gone back to smelling the perfume I think the main scents have to be the peony, vanilla and musk. I think the vanilla gives it the really subtle sweet edge and the floral notes match the musk so well - the scents are all very balanced rather than there being one really strong one but I think all the different fragrances have been chosen really well and they compliment each other perfectly rather than overpowering one another.
This definitely doesnt smell like any of Paris perfume that Ive ever tried and just like I said about the bottle I like this perfume is a little more grown up and you can see how the different perfumes have evolved if you have used others from her range. Her older fragrances are definitely aimed more for younger people whereas this one although it is slightly heavier and musky I think will appeal to women of all ages. My moms tried this one out and she really loves it but she actually agrees with me (for once!) that although this is quite a heavy scent it is more suited to daytime wear because once this has sunk into your skin a bit the scent becomes a lot lighter.
The only problem I do have with this perfume and every other one of Paris' offerings is that they dont stay on your skin for very long at all. Id say three hours at the most which means your going to be reapplying a lot and in turn means a bottle wont last all that long. I am a smoker though so the scent of cigarettes may be overpowering the perfume so Id suggest making your own minds up on that one but for me they staying power isnt great. As I said though Im definitely going to treat myself to a real bottle of this soon because it is a great scent, really cute bottle and more grown up than her other scents. One for all ages I think so I do fully recommend it.
Paris Hilton perfumes are available pretty much everywhere I usually get mine from Bodycare because they sell them quite cheaply but Boots, Superdrug, The Perfume Shop & The Fragrance Shop are a few others that spring to mind that will also sell this.

When I heard that the latest Paris Hilton perfume was called FAIRY DUST I immediately lost all interest in it. I assumed that with a name like that Parlux were going after the tween market. But - being a perfume whore - I decided to spritz the tester anyway, so I'll now hold my hands up and admit that I was wrong.
On first application the scent is sweet. It is the fruity sweetness of grapes however, not a candy sweetness.
The sweetness soon fades as the floral notes in the heart notes develop. The notes are blended together very well, but I can detect the gardenia.
The creamy base is soft and the musk means it isn't actually that sweet . It goes close to the skin, so gives nice, subtle warmth to the wearer.

It's a clear, heavy glass design, with a fairy design engraved into the glass. Very pretty.

I love this as an everyday scent, all year round.
It's an easy fragrance for any woman to wear, regardless of age or job; my teenage sister used to help herself my bottle and my mother now owns my old 100ml bottle.
The only reason I've removed a star is because of the staying power. After an hour, it goes close to the skin. After two hours I struggle to smell it.

I can't wear a lot of floral-heavy fragrances as I suffer from migraines, but I haven't had a problem with this.
I hate the name; Paris Hilton perfume names get worse every time. People can be embarrassed to admit what they're wearing, which removes from the pleasure of wearing fragrance, and it'll turn people away from trying them; a real shame as all of her fragrance releases are enjoyable.

Most online retailers halve the RRP on the Paris Hilton brand perfumes, so I'd recommend shopping around.
Fairy Dust is a floral fragrance developed by perfumer Cecile Krakower. The notes include "sparkling prosecco accord", pink peony, orange blossom, spring gardenia, water lily, peach nectar, sueded patchouli, cashmere musk and vanilla cream.
