Sweetness comes the second time around
I got this in Creamy Vanilla (since I love all things vanilla) and my first impression is that it seriously smells strongly of alcohol. Right off the bat. I wasn’t fond of it at first, so I didn’t use this for about a month or so. It was just sitting in my room until I decided to spray it on me again after I showered at night (since I’m the type to want to smell good even if I’m just at home, I wanted to use this because sayang my P360, and I didn’t want to use an expensive perfume because sayang). Surprisingly, it smelled lesser like alcohol and the scent is much more bearable and vanilla-y. Though it’s not the kind of vanilla that I would really love or was looking for, but it still smells good for me, so why not? And yes, it does smell like “creamy vanilla”, especially once it has dried down on your skin already. I’d say that it smells good, and I’m 50% in love with the scent.
Moving on, I wasn’t expecting much for its longevity because it’s just a hair and body spray, not an Eau De Parfum kind. It lasted quite a while since I could still smell it on me even after I’ve slept already. Staying power is good as long as you wouldn’t be sweating and all! Wouldn’t mind reapplying though because there’s a lot of content anyway.
Price? Hmm, for me it’s priced fairly. It smells good (not too strong or it doesn’t make you sick), the staying power is pretty decent. Remember also that you’re paying for the packaging, and this being housed inside a glass bottle is good too (yet more expensive than regular plastic packaging), by the way. It’s just not really ideal for traveling since it’s heavy and a bit bulky. The spray nozzle sprays quite strongly but I don’t find it too bothersome. Overall, it’s good for me, as well, when it comes to the 2P’s: price and packaging.
I’m only giving it four stars because of my early experience with this (the alcohol smell) :( To conclude, I like this now that I’ve given it a break and I guess the alcohol evaporated? Good things come to those who wait hehe. Give it time and you’ll fall back in love again, just like my ex and I (chAROT). Hoping to get Chocolate Hazelnut next (crossing my fingers they’d be on sale soon!)
