Having previously reviewed two other So. . . fragrances (So... Kiss Me and So...Sinful) it was time to review the last one on my daughters shelf. The one I am reviewing today is just called So...
So... Is the original fragrance from So... and is described as a classic scent that is for the sophisticated woman. It comes in the usual So... bottle with a black button mushroom cap and So... printed and underlined in red on the front of the bottle. The clear bottle allows the clear orange perfume to be seen. A 50ml bottle can be brought from Boots for £10.49 or off amazon.co.uk for £6.67 + £2.95 postage, so again it is slightly cheaper to purchase online.
This is my favourite So... fragrance and one that I have been wearing for a couple of days. Upon first spraying I am hit with a wave of warm fruity notes which are described as Tangerine and Orange Flower. The EDT is not overly orangey; it has a warmth and depth that I really like. After a short time the florals come through although the initial fruity warm scent is still present, the florals are describes as Jasmine, Rose and Ylang Ylang. These florals are probably part of the reason this is my favourite So... EDT as I am a fan of Jasmine and Rose scents. A good 4 to 6 hours after first applying the base notes are very present, again there is the Vanilla which seems to be a favourite with all So... fragrances, this time it is backed up with Sandalwood and Amber which give it depth and warmth.
I think this EDT is quite a heavy scent and is more suited to evening/night wear, it is quite a heady and warm combination of notes and has a good lasting scent that fades away sweetly till all that is left is the Vanilla.
The staying power of this EDT is very good, especially as I think at around £10 it is so cheap for a 50ml bottle. The bottle and packaging are nothing special but don't let that put you off trying it out. I always though So... fragrances were a bit childish and naff but this one has converted me.
Thank you for reading.
