Advantages: Smells Nice One Its Died Down & Cheap
Disadvantages: The Spicy Scent, Smells VERY Strong At First & Hard To Find In Stores.
I havent done a perfume review on here for absolutely ages now so I thought over the next few days Id attempt a few to try and eventualy write reviews on all the perfumes I own - brace yourself there is quite a few! Anyway Im not a massive fan of these "celeb" fragrances as a rule Id rather but one's made my designers or people who ONLY make perfume but for the Paris Hilton scents I tend to make an exception. Not because Im a fan of her as a person but all of her scents Ive tried in the past have been really nice and over time become some of my favourite perfumes so I guess it was inevitable that eventually I would try this one "Paris Hilton - Sheer" which my mom bought me a few weeks ago as a little treat. I expected it to smell amazing like her other scents do but I have to say out of all the range [that Ive tried anyway] this one is actually the worst. Its not the worst perfume EVER but it insnt the best by far.
Price: Around £17 - 50ml bottle.
Stockists: Ebay & SimplyBe. Ive never actually seen this sold in a shop even one's like The Perfume Shop so it might not be as widely available as the rest of her scents.
Packaging & Bottle:
Often I buy perfume totally based on the bottle but in this case I find the bottle to be slightly boring. It is exactly the same as her first fragrance [which was self titled] so it just seems like she didnt really put any effort at all into creating a new, improved design here - I bet a lot of people will mistake the two! The bottle is quite large and light pink in colour with black stripes all the way down. Dont get me wrong it isnt the worst bottle ever but clearly no effort was made with this one. The only way to distinguish this from the self titled perfume is that the name Sheer is written in very tiny writng on the bottle top - other than that the 2 are pretty much the same. This one also comes in a pink & black box with the same design as the bottle & another box with a picture of Paris on the front - overall it looks alright but nothing special.
After a quick peek around the internet I found the main notes in this perfume are as follows: Apple, Freesia, Mimosa, Musk, Ylang Ylang, Wet Ozone, Jasmine & Sandalwood. That list is actually pretty similar to the scent list for her self titled perfume but actually the two smell quite different.
The most noticable scent straight away is definately the apples because this comes off as incredibly fruity and sweet which made me think it would be like the original however this has quite an alcoholic scent to it at first which tends to make it quite overpowering and far too strong to spray on yourself seconds before you leave the house. But sadly at first the smell it fades down to is even worse. Im assuming the very spicy scent must come from the sandalwood but Im all for spicy, warming perfumes I just wasnt expecting to smell like a balti restaurant. The spicy edge when it dies down is far to strong for me and it doesnt seem to compliment any of the other scents just overpower them and I think this perfume would have got a much higher score had that spicy element been left out - it seems so out of place compared to the rest of the sweet, fruity scents.
Happily when it dies down again you are left with a gorgeous scent in this case the musk seems to be the strongest note I can pick out but that works really well with the fruity notes and makes the perfume slightly heavier making it great for wearing at night as well as day. Ive never had any bad comments on this perfume but Im not THAT keen on the scent until it dies right down and that does take a while so I dont wear it all that often.
However if you like spicy scents this may be the perfect perfume for you because it offers something a little bit different from the normal Paris scent - I prefer her ordinary perfumes though I have to say stick with what you know is the perfect way to describe this perfume. If you like this scent I would say it is suitable for both night & daywear and Id guess best for teenagers/young women but if you like the scent who cares what age you are? Attempt to try this before you buy it though as I dont think everyone will like this one.
3/5. Thanks For Reading.
