Revlon Charlie Red Eau de Cologne
Advantages: Smells gorgeous, floral and sweet, long lasting scent, good value for money, cheap.
I used to use Charlie body sprays when I was younger, they used to be really cheap and smell really nice, and only recently I noticed that Charlie also make Eu de Toilette. After tying the Blue colour, my grandmother (who loves a bargain more then me!) brought me the Charlie Eu de Toilette Red, for only £4.99 from The Perfume Shop, but I honestly thought it would just be cheap and cheerful.
The packaging of the Charlie Red is a red, cardboard box, the top is a darker red, which fades into a lighter red. The writing on the packaging is simple, it just has the Charlie logo and the product, and I have to say that Charlie claims that the Red is an Eu de Toilette, rather then a Eu de Cologne. The bottle is a frosted glass type, which looks really expensive and professional, which I love! The top of the bottle is silver, and on the front of the glass is written "Charlie Red", which is written in red. I personally love the bottle, I think it looks really pretty and attractive, also very appealing for potential customers.
To use the Charlie Red Eu de Toilette is very easy to use, it is very similar to other perfumes. Just push the top down, which releases the spray, and spray directly to the skin. I personally found the push top down easy to use. I personally found that spraying the Eu de Toilette around 20cm away for a lighter coverage, perfect for day time, and around 10cm-5cm for a more intense coverage, but again it depends on mainly personal taste.
The scent of the Charlie Red Eu de Toilette was a really unique and feminine, which is pretty much perfect for me! The scent is a mixture of different scents, Jasmine, Lilies and Roses are the obvious scents, which make the scent quite floral and fresh. Again for perfect for Summer! Other scents within the scent is honey, musk and violet, which give the scent a really sweet hint to it, but it is completely overpowered by the gorgeous floral scent. The scent is perfect for girly girls, women who love floral and sweet scents but also perfect for the summer, as it's so fresh and easy wearable. The scent is quite strong, so only a small amount of the perfume is needed to get maximum impact, but for a night out you might want more of a intense cover.
The effects of wearing the Eu de Toilette were really positive, the scent was really unique and I got a lot of comments about how nice it smelt, but also wearing the Eu de Toilette really was nice for those long summer nights! I really enjoyed wearing the fragrance. The biggest bonus for me was the lasting power of the scent, it lasted all day, and was as powerful as if I just put it on, I only needed to reapply when I went out for a night out, but I'm fairly sure I didn't have too!
I would recommend Charlie Red Eu de Toilette as it really is a nice fragrance, sweet and floral, but also it is easily wearable, perfect for day or night. Plus easy to wear for work. The fragrance lasts throughout the day, which is perfect! Plus the 100ml bottle lasts ages, as the scent is quite strong, you only need to put a little bit of the Eu de Toilette on, which is great value for money.
Charlie Red Eu de Toilette is available at Boots, Superdrug, bigger supermarkets and shops specialising in fragrances. The price range is extreme from £4.99-£15. Mine was brought for £4.99 at The Perfume Shop.
Summary: Another amazing Charlie fragrence!
