Name: Bodyspray Floral Love Violets & Mandarin
From Boot’s website:
Boots Bodyspray Floral Love is a body fragrance infused with violets and mandarin.A blend of romance and passion with powdery notes, fall in love everyday.
What I liked:
– lovely citrusy floral scent
– tame, stays close to the skin
– lasts 7 hours on the skin
– pretty packaging
What I didn’t like:
– if you don’t like simple, citrusy floral scents, this is not for you
– if you like bold scents, you won’t like this
– doesn’t last all day
You don’t need to spend a lot of money to smell good. A deodorant or body spray will envelop you in a pleasant, fragrant embrace for hours on end. Sure, these scents are usually simple and safe, but sometimes, that’s just what you need. They’re comforting, don’t offend others, and you can count on them to keep you smelling nice throughout the day.
That’s exactly what Boots Bodyspray Floral Love Violets & Mandarin does. It’s a fresh and clean, but soft and powdery scent with a hint of that typical deodorant smell this type of product always has. Although it’s called Violet and Mandarin, the notes make their appearance in the opposite order.
When you first spray it on, all your nose can smell is the strong, fresh, but somewhat bitter, aroma of mandarin. It takes a few minutes to mellow down and allow the violets to shine as well. Their scent is delicate, powdery without being old-fashioned, and very feminine.
Floral Love Violet & Mandarin doesn’t last all day on me. Instead, it starts to fade after about 7 hours of wear. Not too bad for a scent like this that tends to stay close to the skin. Your friends and colleagues will appreciate how tame it is, as being next to you won’t give them a headache.
Just like the scent, the packaging is very feminine too. It’s purple, and decorated with images of violets. I am a bit disappointed mandarins can’t be seen anywhere on the tube, though, as they’re such a big part of the opening accord.
