Sex in the City Lust Eau de Parfum

Advantages: Cheap, quite a nice smell
Disadvantages: Smells cheap, quite ugly packaging
I'm a bit of a bargain hunter, so when I saw that my local B&M were selling the 100ml bottles of 'Lust' for just £3.99 each I thought that I might as well buy a few for presents and I ended up buying one for myself, too.
I'm not really a fan of celebrity type perfumes and if I'm honest I only decided to try it because it was so cheap!! I thought I was getting a real bargain but after having a look online the retail price is actually only around £8.00 and a 100ml bottle can be easily found for under a tenner, which I think is because it is quite old - it's been around for a good few years and it is discontinued in some shops but still easily available online. The perfume comes in a chunky glass bottle which is a rectangular/square kind of shape. The glass is dark purple tinted and the product name is written on the front in black writing. The lid is quite an unusual design - it's silver with a metallic kind of feel and it just pulls off to expose the nozzle. The bottle is quite bulky and not particularly attractive, it's quite a young design in my opinion.
It does look like the odd one out amongst my other perfumes as it's so bulky and wide, but this isn't too much of a disadvantage as it does smell quite nice and that's the main thing that matters rather than the packaging. The bottle comes in a cardboard box which has a purple and white colour scheme. I threw this in the bin as it is not very special looking. This is described by the manufacturers as being a 'feminine scent for sexy, vibrant women'. They state that it is a light and refreshing perfume which is ideal for casual day wear. I have no idea which notes are in this, but it's a very fresh and light fragrance which smells more like body spray than perfume to be honest! The smell isn't very strong and in my opinion it does smell quite cheap.
It's hard to detect any actual fragrance in this, instead it's just like a merge of sweetness and floral with a hint of weak citrus. It reminds me a little of the lilac loveheart sweets but it's no where near as nice smelling! I'm only 21 but I think that this is quite a young scent which would be best suited to teenagers. The scent is very light and summery and it's versatile although I wouldn't dream of wearing this if I was going somewhere special as it's so weak and 'average' smelling. Despite what the manufacturers say, this isn't a vibrant or sexy smelling fragrance in my opinion.
The lasting power isn't great - it's hardly detectable even after half an hour. Overall, this is okay. It smells quite nice, but the fragrance is weak and you can tell that it is a cheap perfume. I do recommend it if you want an affordable perfume for casual wear but this isn't anything special. I'm glad that I didn't spend much money on it!
Three out of five stars.
