**Paul Smith: Paul Smith Women, Eau de Parfum**
I can't remember how I got into liking and buying Paul Smith Perfume it must have been a present one Christmas but I must say I am quite partial to this brand! Well this is a British Branded designer perfume from the fashion brand Paul Smith. I have re-purchased this perfume a few times as I like the scent.
**Who is Paul Smith?**
Well like out Ralph, Paul is a fashion designer but he is not American or born in the Bronx but British and born in Nottingham! His first shop was set up in 1970 and opened a shop in London in 1979 selling eclectic clothes for menswear. He branched out into Jeans, shoes and accessories and fragrances and round about the year 2000 he started to offer fragrances to men and women. Nowadays there are quite a few fragrances to be had from Paul Smith as well as the one I have, these include extreme, floral, London and rose.
**The Bottle and Package**
I have the 100ml bottle edition although it does come in 50ml and 30ml and for some bizarre reason I have 2x 100ml bottle both half full. (no idea how that happened!) The bottle is rectangular shaped and thick pink glass with a pink lid. (Funny though most my perfumes seem to be pink!) The nozzle is pink and plastic and yet again I seem to be missing the lid on both which has happened to a lot of my perfumes lately. This again has not made the perfume leak in my bag and if I recall the lid was a push top clear type. The bottle is a little on the big side but it is the 100ml version. It has Paul Smith written on the side of the bottle quite in quite small writing. It is a nice enough bottle and classic in design and you can tell it is a more modern younger design brand.
This perfume is promoted as an elegant and soft perfume yet distinct English perfume. Paul Smith for Women is a fresh floral and fruity fragrance and aimed probably more at younger women. It has quite a lot of ingredients in it to make up the scent. This includes notes of bergamota, clementina, casis, green pepper, freesia, muguet, geranio and green tea as well as noble woods, vetiver, pachuli and haba tonka. It also has some of the infamous cedar in there too! It is the type of perfume that can be worn on any occasion whether that be daywear or evening wear. It would appeal to most but is quite sweet and floral so if you are not partial to this then you are best avoiding.
**Using it and recommending it**
Well the 100ml lasts quite a while and is easy to use. You don't need much on application and a few squirts is good for the neck and arms. I also spray this over jumpers and clothes sometimes as I like the smell. The only annoying thing about it is the lid has disappeared but that seems to be something I have done with all my perfumes lately! Also when it nears running out it is hard to get the remains out and on one of my earlier bottles of this I smashed the nozzle and couldn't get the perfume out.
I would definitely recommend this perfume as it is an affordable scent to buy. It is reasonably priced and widely available online or in the shops. It is a floral scent and a nice sweet and fresh perfume. It would appeal to most and be easily a good present. The pink bottle is a nice in design and simple and it comes in a purple/black colour box. I still have two bottle half full and feel it is well worth the pennies and the pounds if you ask me!
Well as I have two 100ml bottles I haven't bought this in a while but the price seems cheaper than what I paid. There seem to be some good discounts on this at the moment with online shops selling them for half the rrp. The pricing is therefore a little odd as you can get 30ml as cheap as £14-£17 (rrp around £30) and 50ml at around £20-£30 (rrp £35)and 100ml between £20 to £40 (rrp is about £40). That is perhaps why I have two 100ml bottles as maybe i found them for £20 at the time. If you do decide to buy this definately compare the prices as you can find this for well under the rrp and the bigger bottles don't seem much more in price than the smaller ones
