PERFUMEEEEEEEE. I’m a bit naff in that I tend to stick to the same perfumes, change terrifies me and I do not like being out of my comfort zone, but my Mum always buys me a bottle at Christmas.
This year, she got me a bottle of Guess Seductive.
I’ve never had a Guess perfume before, on account of me being a creature of habit that has a total break down in the face of change. The brand Guess is originally a maker of jeans, but in 2003 they entered the perfume market and have a pretty decent selection of perfumes that aren’t too expensive. From what I can tell, most of their perfumes seem to be around £15 a bottle, give or take a few quid.
The perfume I usually wear costs around £30 for a 30ml bottle and around £50 for a 50ml, so it’s waaaay cheaper. I wear perfume every day, so go through it fast. I’ve never considered trying to find more affordable one to wear for the average day. If I like something, I’d stick with it probably be happy to stick with it for the rest of my life.
I love the packaging and bottle – it looks like it would cost more than it does and I was surprised at the price when I first searched it!
The scent itself is quite floral and fruity, so it’s great for an every day wear – some of my perfumes feel a bit too much for going to work, but this works fine.
For a more advanced perfumer, there’s the actual scent breakdown:
Fragrance Family: Floral, Fruity. Top Notes: Bergamot, Pear, Black currant. Heart Notes: Jasmine, Orange blossom, Iris. Base Notes: Cashmere wood, Vanilla, Frankincense.
Have you ever tried Guess? What do you think of it?
