What I liked:
– bright ad sparkling scent
– lasts long
– smells more grown-up than most body spray scents out there
What I didn’t like:
– if you don’t like fruity and oriental scents, this is not for you
Impulse body sprays used to be a fave staple in my bag, all those years ago in high school. They weren’t that expensive, came in cute, girly tubes, and always made me smell great.
I can’t remember when I started cheating on them. Over the years, I just found myself straying more and more. We are spoiled for choices these days, and it is so hard to be faithful to just one brand, especially when something new and exciting catches your eye.
But last year, Impulse has reformulated its body sprays, improving both the packaging and the scents. They now come in eye-catching, colourful tubes that are bound to capture your attention, even among the hundreds of options that line the drugstore aisles.
The scents have been ungraded too. They new were ones formulated by Ann Gottlieb, the nose behind some of the most popular fragrances from Dior, Calvin Klein, and Oscar De La Renta. They now also contain real perfume oils, which allow them to hang onto the skin for longer. I spray Rock & Love Amber & Orange Blossom in the morning and, despite walking all day, I still smell fresh and lovely in the evening.
The real perfume oils also makes the fragrances smell more sophisticated and real, as opposed to cheap and synthetic. And the notes go so well together. Amber & Orange Blossom are two favourites of mine and together, they are delightful.
This scent is sparkling and fresh, fruity but with a sexy twist. It’s too grown up for teens, but not too old-fashioned for young women who are looking for something more elegant than your regular and boring body spray fragrance.
But I wouldn’t call it Rock. It’s not edgy, gritty, or leathery. It’s bright, slightly sweet, and very feminine (but without being girly). But I think it’d still be a great scent for a rock chic girl. It complements the dark, hard look by adding a soft, gentler vibe. If that’s your thing, give it a sniff. You may fall in love with it too.
