      Disadvantages

      Nice enough scent, good for those wanting a safe bet

      I saw this fragrance on fragrancedirect.com and was lured in by the very low price of £16 for a 100ml bottle, which I thought was a bargain! I love perfumes, and wanted to give this a try. The notes sounded nice, and I thought that if I wasn't keen on it, I could always have given it to my mum as a present. 2 days after ordering from the website, the perfume turned up at my door.

      --Bottle--

      The bottle is not going to be everyone's taste, infact, I'm not particularly keen on it myself, it's a bit glitzy for my liking, with a squat bottom and a very crystally top which reminds me of an old fashioned bath tap. Underneath the lid is a pump action spray which dispenses the perfume. I saw photos before I bought it, so I knew what the bottle looked like, pale pink and very feminine, but personally I'm not so keen. I didn't buy this for the bottle though, I wanted to try the scent!

      --Fragrance--

      The first thing I noticed about this fragrance is that it's very floral, as the name suggests, with the most noticeable notes being rosey in scent. The rest of the notes were very hard to pick out but presented a general soft sweet floral aroma, with a hint of plummy fruitiness.

      The official notes are mandarin, purple plum, coconut water, tuberose, pikake, jasmine, amber, iris, sandalwood and creamy musks, but I found these hard to pick out throughout, even the basenotes.

      The overall scent was one that was inoffensive but nothing special, nice but not wonderful.

      --Staying power--

      I found that this had excellent staying power on me, I could still smell this on my skin 5 hours after application so that is a good plus point.

      --Overall--

      In the end, I gave this to my mum: she came to visit and commented how nice the bottle was (it seemed like fate), and when I let her try it, she said it was lovely. It suited her more watery (in a nice way) personality than mine and so I gave it to her as a gift. She really likes it, where as I thought it was nice but nothing special. It was still a good price though!

      Not a lot to say about this one...

      The fragrance

      COVERT PURE BLOOM is in the middle of the road for me. It's not a fragrance I want to wash off and it hasn't given me any headaches. But it doesn't have that 'special something' that would make me come back for more.

      I couldn't pick out any individual scent notes, apart from the plum and the tuberose. There wasn't a noticeable difference between the top, heart and base notes either, just loads of watery, softly sweet notes that I couldn't seperate.


      COVERT PURE BLOOM is a pleasant fragrance that is inoffensive, but unmemorable. Why is it a spin-off? There's nothing about this that reminds me of the original COVERT. Must be down to making more of a profit from the COVERT name.

      The bottle

      The bottle and cap are the same shape as the original Covet, the difference is they are a nice shade of lilac.

      I'm not a fan of the cap. It doesn't fit the bottle very well.

      This fragrance seems watered down to me, so the staying power isn't good for a EDP: 2/3 hours max.

      It's too soft for evening wear, but is suitable for work as well as casual wear.

      It's ideal for spring/summer, but I think the mild fruits and florals become 'lost' in the winter.

      My opinion
      - - - - - - - - - -

      I don't dislike COVET PURE BLOOM and I still sometimes wear it [it was a gift. Everyone buys me perfume - as if I don't own enough as it is], it's just something that I'd buy myself. It's just watery and quiet so nothing stands out, therefore I think it's a bit dull.

      Price
      - - - - -

      The Covet line has been discontinued so online shopping is the surefire way to go. A few shops may have some old stock left, but it's a matter of luck.

      Many online retailers stock the 30ml and 50ml bottles for under £20, so don't pay more then that. Some sites also still stock the 100ml bottle for £20 - £25.

      Not for young girls

      Pure Bloom is the limited edition version of Sarah Jessica Parkers Covet fragrance. I havent smelt the original Covet so i dont know if this is similar or not.
      I got it as a christmas present, but i wish i hadnt got it because its nothing i would ever pick for myself and is more suited to my gran!

      The packaging is quite cute, its a clear bottle with the purple liquid inside and a purple lid that kind of looks like a flower. If i seen it in a shop i would be attracted to the packaging but not to the scent. Boots have the 30ml bottle for £25 which i think is a reasonable price for a perfume that size.

      Its a long lasting scent which is good if you like it, and i could still smell it after a few hours The ingriedients say it has jasmine, creamy musk and floral notes. I dont like any of these scents and find them all too strong for me which is why i dont like this. I tried to get used to it and wore it for a few days but it kept reminding me of something. The only thing i could think of was those perfume making kits that you used to get when you were younger that were made mainly of rose petals. Thats exactly what it smells like.

      I have smelled SJP's first fragrance lovely and i didnt like that either, they are just too musky and old fashioned smelling for me so if you didnt like that then i would advise you stay away from this too. SJP is an older women and i think her fragrances are suited to women close to her age, not for anyone below the age of 30.
