My New Go To Perfume For When Spring Arrives

Friday, 6 January 2017

I've said this for a while now on my blog but I always associate perfumes with different seasons/weathers. Sounds strange, I know but I don't even mean to do it, I'll just smell a perfume then I'm instantly taken to a season.

Back in late November, I asked for the Olympea perfume for Christmas. I had been eyeing it up for a while but thought I would add it onto my Christmas list in case if anyone was stuck for ideas on what to get me. Low and behold on the 25th of December, I found the Olympea perfume sat under the Christmas tree waiting to be unwrapped by me - although it wasn't much of a surprise as I was with the person who was buying it for me and I managed to save them a fiver on it with one of my Boots vouchers - ha.

I love perfume, it is one of my guilty pleasures and I don't think I could go the whole year without buying perfume, actually I probably couldn't even go a couple of months without buying some sort of perfume, I just like to smell nice. I had seen this perfume advertised for a while now and originally when it came out onto the market and just new I had to smell it.

Whilst in Boots a while ago I picked up one of the pieces of long card and spritzed a bit onto it and smelt it. I was very satisfied with the scent of this perfume, so much so I sprayed it onto my body and walked out of the shop.

If I had to describe the scent in three words it would be: light, feminine and sweet. Not so much a candy type of sweet scent, just a sweet smelling scent in general. I know that doesn't really make sense but it's the only way I can describe it. I would also say this perfume is ideal for younger women, I've smelt some designer perfume and can only think that it would suit an older woman and wouldn't really work for a teenager of a young adult.  According to the Fragrantica website, the top note is vanilla which I thought was really surprising because I wouldn't of said vanilla in a million years. I guess that's where I'm getting the sweet scent from. The vanilla in it isn't the typical really strong scent that you can sometimes get with a body spray or with a candle, I think it's very subtlety put into it.

The actual bottle shape I find to be very delicate and feminine which I love. I have the smaller size and I have to say it looks so cute when it's stood on my chest of drawers.

Also, the scent of this perfume is long lasting which is a massive bonus for me. Since opening this perfume, I have only worn it once just to try it out and it did last on my skin for a good few hours and when I smelt my wrist just to check to see (or smell) if it was still there it was just as strong as when I first applied it.  I hate perfumes that need to be applied every half an hour because the scent has disappeared. This is probably why I'd much rather splash out a bit more on a high end bottle of perfume as you would expect the long lasting trait to come along with a designer brand although this sometimes isn't always the case.

I named this blog post "my new go to perfume for when Spring arrives" because when I do smell this scent, it takes me straight to Spring. It's probably because it is fairly light the scent and not too overpowering. The scent just takes me to sitting in a pub garden on a nice sunny day with a cold drink in hand. I seriously cannot wait till that weather arrives because I'm sick of waking up to the freezing cold and having to sit in my car whilst waiting for the deicer to work. Only a few months to go though!

If you couldn't tell already, I'm in love with this scent, normally I would save this perfume for best but I figure that there's not much point in doing that because it'll just sit on my chest of drawers waiting to be used. As soon as the weather starts to get a bit warmer, I'm going to start using this a bit more often but I might save it for best during the winter, ha.

Overall, I am really happy with this perfume and I probably would go out and repurchase it again and would definitely recommend it to a friend.
