Taylor Swift – Wonderstruck Enchanted

IMG_5511

It had to be done didn’t it? I loved the original Wonderstruck.. sorry LOVE.. so much that I knew I had to have the new Enchanted version, I just can’t believe it’s taken my so long to buy it! I finally have it now though so a review is job one. I only received it in the post this morning (I’m writing this on Monday because if I wasn’t super duper organised I’d never blog at all) but I think I’ve worn it long enough to write up at least my initial feelings. First of all I spritzed it straight out of the box and hated it. I thought it smelled soapy and just I guess not what I expected after the first was so sweet and fruity, I was disappointed but it has dried down to a totally different scent. I think the initial notes that hit me were white musk and florals which are not my cup of tea at all but the vanilla and woody notes came out later which has left it much more my kind of fragrance. I’ve never experienced such a flip that way around before, I’ve loved a perfume and smelled it again later and hated it but one has never changed on me from hate to love.. bizarre. If I’d tested it in Boots I would never have bought it so I’m glad I took the plunge and ordered sight unseen.

Already I think this is lasting longer on my skin than the original, I usually can’t smell that on myself after half an hour but this is much better.. although I once read that the perfume for you is the one you apply and then can’t smell yourself, only others can smell it on you.. have you heard that? The bottle is identical, holographic with the detailed golden lid but red this time, they will look cute next to each other on my dresser. Available online here priced £21.00 for 30ml

So it’s another win for me, I really like it but it was a grower so if you don’t love it straight away then wait a while.. you may find it changes on you too

    I must give this a sniff – you make it sound like something i’d enjoy:-)
    Cheapsmells.com has 50ml for £24.95 – 100ml for £33.95. It’s my favourite site for ordering perfumes (i’m not affiliated, promise!). It’s just the best site for discounted perfumes i’ve found so far and i’ve been pleased with their service. (I think you can use the code ‘shopcodes’ and get an extra 5% off too.)
    Seeing as this is Miss “Budget” Beauty i thought i’d share! If anyone out there has cheaper options i’m all ears and will be checking back as i love collecting perfumes:-)

    I love this so much – maybe even more than the original! It was love at first spritz for me, but now getting ready in the morning is even more of a task because I have to decide between the two Wonderstuck perfumes…!
