Rawrgirls Review . . . Superdry Neon Purple Perfume!

Tuesday, 18 December 2012

Superdry have recently launched a new range of perfumes for us girls! The Neon fragrances are 4 individual 40ml scents (£35 each) designed to suit all occasions; Neon Blue is a light and fruity mix of pear, apple, melon, lily of the valley, jasmine and musks. Neon Pink is a feminine scent of bergamot, pineapple, galbanum, water fruits, jasmine, rose, sandalwood, vanilla and musks. Neon Orange is a yummy invigorating scent of mandarin, orange, blackcurrant, orange blossom, pineapple, cedarwood and musks, whilst Neon Purple combines exotic fresh figs, green leaves, lily of the valley, cedarwood, sandalwood, dry amber, coconut, tonka and musks. 

I got my paws on Neon Purple so I thought I'd do a little review for tinterwebz :) 

The packaging is really cool; a hard, colour co-ordinated cube shaped box with a magnetic closure holds a weighty glass bottle with a black lid that flips off like a lighter (I'll tell you now that it's ridiculously addictive and you WILL pretend to be James Dean, or in a weaker moment, the Fonz at least). For a female fragrance it's quite a functional, even boy-ish bottle, but it suits the brand's style and fans will appreciate how it embraces the Superdry look, plus the colours are striking and really purty.

Anyhoo, hours of playing with the lighter-esque lid later and I finally got to the actual fragrance. First impression? YUM. The hit of coconut is immediate, and it's an ingredient I always enjoy in a fragrance (Harajuku Lovers G for example, really hits my spot). Combine the coconut with the warm scent of the figs, sandalwood and amber and it's like lying on an exotic beach - siiiiiiggghhhhhh. In short, I love it! If like me you are a sucker for anything that smells like holidays, cocktails and sunshine then you will want to add this to your dressing table.

This is definitely a scent I would want to re-purchase, which is a big deal for me because I'm very fickle when it comes to perfume. I don't have a signature scent, if it smells like candy or coconut I'm all over it, I love a good novelty shaped bottle and I have even been known to buy a celebrity perfume without even smelling it just because I love the chick (Gwen, Katy, Britney and Gaga, I'm looking at you girls!). Only a few favourites ever make it back for a second run at my pulse points, and this little bottle of deliciousness is now joining that list - hurrah! 

J - She comes and goes and comes and goes like no one can . . .
