“ Brand: Boots / Gender: for women „
Growing up I used to get the more teenage little sized bottles from Boots, and last year I got this set for my Christmas. I think this has been getting sold for years as I can remember the little box of these for years and years.
I didn't think that these would be all that expensive, so after looking online I got a shock as to how much this actually costs. It cost £22 for the 4 tiny little bottle. I suppose since the ml size adds up to 19ml then it does appear that bit expensive.
The bottles are quite cute. They are in a box and sit in a plastic cut out bit. The Perfumes you get in here are Amor Amor 5ml, Giorgio Armani Code 3ml, Diesel Fuel for Life 7ml and Emporio Armani Diamonds 4ml. The bottles are little versions of the full sized bottle.
So now to the scent of these. How do they smell? There is a good mixture of different scents in here. So although they may not all appeal to everyone, there should be something there for everyone. But at this price I would want to like and use all of them.
Amor Amor - This smells fruity, slightly white floral and a warm kind of sparkling scent. It smells like red berries with those white floral spray things you get in bunches of Flowers.
Emporio Armani Diamonds - This is a nice scent. It smells of Oranges, quite a sweet smell as well. There appears to be a slight musky scent to this and perhaps a Vanilla scent too.
Diesel Fuel for Life - This is a floral and woody scent. Probably my least favourite in the range. It smells a tiny bit masculine, but it is light enough as well.
Giorgio Armani Code - This is a bit of a weird smell. It is slightly spicy with a peppered kind of smell. This is also kind of Musky as well. Not my favourite scent but it is a bit of a nice scent. I wouldn't want to buy a large bottle of this though.
So a little taster of some popular Perfumes. They are nice enough but still quite pricey. Would make a nice present though.
Mr M kindly bought me Boots Ladies Luxury Fragrance Selection as a treat last week. I'd been a very good girl, so he splashed out on the set of four mini perfumes.
He also splashed out on the men's version (see separate review) for himself
So what did he get for his £22? A 5ml bottle of Cacharel's Amor Amor, a 3ml bottle of Giorgio Armani's Code, a 4ml bottle of Emporio Armani's Diamonds and a 7ml bottle of Diesel's Fuel For Life.
**Amor Amor by Cacharel**
"Fall in love - a dazzling fruity floral love potion" the box says.
A tiny red bottle, with a coil like neck leading to the spray head on top. A miniature version of the normal version, as far as I can see.
It's a gorgeous scent. Fresh, warm and fruity. There is a hint of flower, but to me it's more fruity than floral. I'd say it's definitely a date perfume. It's sexy, young and light-hearted - well that's how I felt when I wore it!
**Code by Giorgio Armani**
"The secret code of women - a timeless expression of elegance with feminine orange blossom"
A bottle about two and half inch high, dark blue with a black flower print, and a black lid. These miniature's really are faithful to the full sized designs, it's quite endearing. Pull the top off carefully, or it will go everywhere, as this is not a spray.
The smell is spicy yet light. It's classically sexy (if you understand what I mean) with a heavier tone than the Amor Amor. Perfect for a dinner date, more grown-up than the Amor Amor.
**Diamonds by Emporio Armani**
"Can you resist? - an irresistible gourmand fragrance, sparkling and audacious"
Is this without doubt my favourite from the selection. An inch and half high bottle, like a squished ball in shape, the glass has been faceted like a gemstone. A small silver top pulls off to unleash the fragrance (another non-spray so do be careful).
Fresh, light, happy and tangy. Floral with a hint of orange, making it a pretty sweet fragrance. It's yummy! It makes me think of that first summers day, and how the warmth and sunshine makes you feel. Happy and free. Sunny if you like. I'd happily wear this everyday - there's no occasion this isn't suited to.
**Fuel for Life by Diesel**
"Are you alive? - a sexy and energizing mix of flowers and woods"
Oval shaped bottle with a gold lid, pulled off to reveal the spray top. The name is raised on the side of the bottle. Spicy and woody in scent, it has a hint of citrus fruit and floral undertones (ooh get me!!). I'd wear this for a daytime date, or maybe dancing.
The price maybe too high for the sizes you get, but it's great for a gift, or if you fancy some new perfume but can't decide which. It's good because you can try them out on your own skin (always changes from person to person due to the chemical reaction with your skin) without forgetting which wrist is which, or getting home from the shop and discovering that the scent has warmed up and you now like it!
If you have a difficult female to buy for this Christmas, this selection box won't be a dud gift, and will probably earn you serious brownie points. And of course, you'll earn yourself Advantage Card points at the same time!
