So…. yeah.. I bought this. If you follow me on twitter you’ll know I was considering the purchase a couple of days ago and somehow ended up buying her album on itunes instead. After a day of Taylor Swift warbling through my home it was clear the perfume must be acquired and an order was placed. It arrived late last night and so here I am to share my opinion. I am very particular about fragrance, aren’t we all? I hate Jimmy Choo, Loverdose and am really not as enamoured with Flower Bomb as everyone else seems to be. I prefer sweet scents like Lady Million, Lovestruck and Euphoria. This is the first perfume I’ve ever bought before testing it first but a review had been requested and it’s a reasonably priced @20 for 30ml so.. I decided to take a chance. If I’m honest I haven’t totally made up my mind whether I like it yet, I definitely don’t dislike it and I will wear it but I’ not sure that I’d have rushed to buy it if I’m sniffed it in store.
Upon first spritz you’re hit with a super sweet wave that I love but as it dries it becomes more musky and mature. Not what I expected from Taylor Swift at all! It is made up of Freesia, Green Tea, Apple Blossom, Raspberry, Dewberry.. which means very little to me because I’m less than savvy when it comes to fragrant notes but I would say that to anyone that is put off my florals.. although it may sound it it’s not flowery at all. I think it’s more of an evening fragrance for me but it just depends on you and your preference. I prefer something sweet and fresh during the day whereas this is surprisingly heav, it does last really well though for a cheaper perfume so could feasibly stick around all day at work.
Lastly I would be remiss if I didn’t mention the packaging.. how gorgeous is this bottle? It’s blue glass with a holographic overlay.. very pretty and different in different lights. To lid is plastic which takes a little shine off but it is a budget buy so what can you expect? I’ve seen photos online that see charms around the top and I’m not sure if it’s only on the 50ml bottles but if any of you know.. go ahead and leave a comment!
Overall I have nothing like this and it’s a welcome addition to my collection. It’s a lovely scent that I doubt anyone would dislike I’m just not as in love with it as I am some of my others.. but at £20 for a 30ml bottle and only £9 more for 50ml that definitely sways my favour in it’s direction!
