Hi there lovelies!
So, I thought I’d do something a little bit different for this product review today, because it is a brand I remember so well from my early teens and so is therefore a perfect #throwbackthursday opportunity! Any noughties teen will remember having So…? body sprays and perfumes as their one of their first perfume products, and many of us probably still use them because the scents are so classic and familiar! I was really happy to be sent my favourite perfume from the lovely people at So…? to remind me of those good old days…
Whilst high end perfumes have been more my product of choice for the past few years now, when you want to switch up your scent no one wants to break the bank. That is why the cult So…? fragrances are a great little addition if you want to reminisce and take a break from your usual perfumes. I was a bit dubious trying this one again after relying on my Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau De Parfum for so long, but the moment I spritzed it on, it brought back memories of taking the body spray to school in my PE kit because I thought I’d smell so sexy if I put it on!
Although ‘sexy’ isn’t exactly the word I’d go for now. This is definitely a more fun scent than the sophisticated spritz of Daisy, but as I love sweet, candy-like scents this is still a great match for me! Most people will be more familiar with the scent of the classic So…? Kiss Me but, being the aspiring sophisticated adult that I was, I always went for Sinful every time because it made me feel so grown up at the time as it was slightly different.
The description of the scent claims:
So…? Sinful hosts a hypnotic aroma with top notes of mint and pineapple followed by heart notes of violet and strawberry. A creamy and tempting base note of vanilla, praline and musk completes this spellbinding scent.
I actually think this is a pretty accurate description of the scent, as normally I can’t smell what you supposedly should with other perfumes. The only thing I think is different is the mint, as I personally can’t smell that kind of freshness, but it definitely is quite a musky scent with a bit of lift from the strawberry and pineapple. I can’t really comment on this compared to the rest of the range, as this is the only one I ever really tried, but it works for me!
Whilst I can’t say I’ll be ditching my high end perfumes solely for this (every girl needs her swanky perfume, right?) it’s a great little addition to my handbag if I want to freshen up on the go, and will always bring back the memories from wearing this in my early teens- something you probably wouldn’t get with a £60 bottle of eau de parfum.
