Ralph Lauren Ralph Women Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Lovely smell, lasts a while
Disadvantages: May be too sweet for some
I've been buying this perfume for quite a few years. I first bought it at the airport when going to Turkey in 2004 and it has been one of my regular perfumes ever since.
The price of this perfume varies depending on where you get it and how much you get. For example it will cost you £15.80 for 30ml on cheapsmells.com. On Boots, 30ml will cost you £21.53 or you can get a 50ml bottle for £32.79 or a 100ml bottle for £45.51.
This perfume comes in quite a bright blue box and the bottle is secured inside with a cardboard sheet and a cardboard ring over the lid. The bottle itself is glass with a turquoise blue lid and a turquoise band around the middle with 'Ralph - Ralph Lauren' written on it. I like the bottle for this perfume; it is simple but chic, classy and understated.
The smell is just gorgeous. It is sweet, fresh and light. It smells fruity, floral and a bit musky. It is wonderfully feminine and I find it is perfect for both day and night wear. Lots of people have commented on it when I wear it and say how fruity, fresh and sweet it is. The official ingredients are a blend of: sparkling green apple leaves, zesty orange mandarin, charismatic pink magnolia, inspiring purple freesia and soft blue musk.
It lasts very well. With some perfumes the smell fades all too quickly but when I wear this I can still notice it on me several hours later. But it is noticeable without being heavy or overpowering.
Some people may find this a little too sweet for them. It is not as sweet as perfumes such as Britney Spears Fantasy but the flowery tones in it do make it a sweeter type of perfume. When I was wearing it once one of my ex-boyfriends said I smelt like sugar. I took it to mean I smelt too sweet! I suppose it depends on what you like; I personally love it and find the sweetness girly and refreshing.
Overall a really fruity, flowery and gorgeous perfume.
Summary: Fruity, floral and refreshing
