Whenever I go shopping, I always like to have a quick sniff of any new fragrances that I see, a couple of years back, I spotted this range in Boots and proceeded to spray each one on to me. I really liked the fragrances, but I didn’t buy any. That was until this year in the Christmas sales, I saw that a gift set was reduced and decided to treat myself.
I picked this up as part of a set which included the body lotion too and paid around 20pounds which I think was quite a good deal. You can buy the fragrance alone and it retails for 40pounds for a 75ml bottle although looking online now, it does seem to be a promotion quite a lot, for example Boots are currently selling a 75ml bottle for less than 25pounds in their fragrance sale.
It is also available from most department store and online fragrance shops.
The fragrance comes in a deep purple bottle which is topped with a silver lid which when removed, reveals a silver spray. To the front of the bottle is a big bold yellow number 4 which is printed on the top of an oversized polo pony.
According to Boots, the fragrance is describes as follows:
Top notes – Blood Orange, Cassyrane, Watermelon
Heart notes - Magnolia Flower, Cristallon, Black Cherry
Base notes - Cedarwood, Sylkolide, Purple Amber
I must say, this fragrance has quite a tropical aroma to it, on first spray, I notice the watermelon and orange notes, after a short while, this subsides to leave a fragrance what I can describe as a being similar to a bowl of freshly picked berries (strawberries, raspberries and cherries) with a slightly vanilla undertone. I would definitely describe this as a summer fragrance and one that I really like.
I don’t normally go for an EDT as I find that the staying power isn’t great but this is a little different, because it seems to have a few layers to it, by the end of the day, the fragrance is still evident, just with a slightly different format to the one is started with. The staying power is even better when I apply this on the top of the body lotion that I got with the set too.
The Pony Collection was first launched back in 2012 and consists of four difference fragrances, No 1, 2, 3 and 4. All of which have quite tropical and oriental aromas to them. I am looking forward to trying another one of them in the future.
I really love the fragrance and would recommend and I would give it 5 out of 5 stars.
Thanks for reading.
