Hello all. Like most people I do almost all my shopping online these days. While I was happy to buy bath products & even makeup, the one area I was apprehensive about was perfumes. How on earth could you buy perfume without smelling it first?! As with all other things, you won't know if you don't try. Presenting my first ever online perfume haul.
Anna's Glamour by Anna Andre
INR 595 for 100 ml
This is by far the cheapest perfume I have ever bought (And I have bought a lot!). Let me tell you there is nothing cheap about it - right from the bottle to the fragrance. It doesn't reek of cheap quality alcohol like the others. The top notes are made up of Melon, Peach & Green Apple which makes it smell fresh. On point for summers. The middle notes are Mimosa, Tuberose, Lily, Freesia, Jasmine & Lily of the valley of which Lily is the most prominent. It last a decent 4 -6 hours after which you can smell the base notes of Sandalwood, Musk, Oakmoss & Ylang Ylang. New found love.
Streax Perfumed Body Mist Celebration Pack
INR 360 for 3 x100 ml
These smell super fresh & last a couple of hours. Even though it contains alcohol, it doesn't sting skin like other body sprays. I expected to love Lily Vanilla but I loved Oriental Blossom most of all.
Oriental Blossom- Made up of a combination of Jasmine, Wild Vanilla & Lemon Zest, I don't think it's a true Oriental perfume. Nevertheless it smells amazing. I especially love the hint of lemon zest- adds a fresh feel to the body mist.
Peach Love- Ah! The perils of online shopping. This one smells exactly like Anna's Glamour. This one's made of Peach, Mimosa & Ylang Ylang but the peach overpowers all others. I like this for daytime use.
Lily Vanilla- This one's made up of Lily, Vanilla (surprise!) & Coconut fragrances. It's a tad too sugary for my liking. I think it will suit teenagers more. There is also a subtle aqua undernote in this.
That's my box for this month. Have you ever bought perfume without smelling first? I am quite surprised I actually like it. Cheers.
