Introduction about Air Wick Fabric Spray with Fresh Bubbles - Crisp Linen and Lilac
I live in a small flat in East Ham. The kitchen cooker has no exhaust and is not far from the bedroom. Even though the wardrobe is tightly closed, I am sometimes paranoid that the various cooking smells could seep into the clothing! I therefore decided to try out some spray on fabric fresheners. The first spray on fabric freshener I picked up at Sainsbury's, was the "Air Wick - Air and Fabric with Fresh Bubbles". The scent I chose was crisp linen and lilac. You have to take note though that the fabric spray is not suitable for use on vinyl, silk or leather.
Value for money
The spray on fabric freshener with fresh bubbles was very good value for money and a 345ml bottle has lasted about two months. A little tends to go a long way. The smell of linen is quite strong so I don't tend to use a lot. The fabric spray costs £3.49 at Ocado and £3.50 at Sainsbury's.
The quality of the fabric freshener is absolutely long lasting. The supplier claims that the scent can last for up to twelve hours after spraying on to fabric. This type of fabric spray has a patented technique called "Air Wick Fresh Bubbles" where bubbles land on the fabrics and these can burst within the next twelve hours, if the fabric is moved and this releases more scent. I have to say that my wardrobe has been smelling very nice over the last two months and the smell of linen is actually more dominant that the scent of lilac. To use the fabric spray, you just push the trigger about 30cm away from the clothes and this releases small squirts of the freshener.
I would definitely recommend that you buy the air and fabric spray with fresh bubbles as it definitely makes a difference to the scent of all my clothes.
Review of Samsung Galaxy Note Version 10.1
I am a really big fan of Samsung's gadgets, as I have previously owned a Samsung Galaxy Ace and Samsung Galaxy S3. I was so pleased with the Samsung brand that I decided that I would try out a Samsung Tablet as well! I brought the Samsung Galaxy Note Version 10.1 from Tesco Direct for £349 in May 2013. The Samsung Galaxy Note Version 10.1 is able to connect to Wi-Fi and has a capacity of 16GB. The model number of the Samsung Galaxy Note that I brought is GT-N8010. The capacitive touch screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note is truly remarkable. The Samsung Galaxy Note Version 10.1 is available in the colours deep grey, white and grey. I brought the white version of the Samsung Galaxy Note.
Reviewing the specifications of Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
The operating system of the Samsung Galaxy Note is Android 4.0/ Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) and this operating system functions really well. There is one expansion slot for the microSD and one USB 2.0 slot. One pair of high quality earphones was also provided. The screen size is excellent and this displays the graphics very effectively.
The S Pen
The tablet comes with a brilliant and very user-friendly S pen which you can use to write notes on the Samsung Galaxy Tab. The S Pen is very innovative and is very accurate when you are using it on the Samsung Galaxy Tab.
The rear facing camera of the Samsung Galaxy Note is 5 megapixels and the front facing camera is 1.9 megapixels. The capture formats include jpeg, gif and png. You can edit the photos using Adobe Photoshop Touch and I have taken some fantastic pictures using the Samsung Galaxy Note on my recent holiday. The built in web cam is excellent for those Skype sessions.
Protecting and storage of the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1
I use a lint free cloth to clean the screen of the Samsung Galaxy Note. I have also purchase a screen protector and leather case to protect the Samsung Galaxy Note from scratches to the screen and damage. The material that it is made out of very wipe able and the Samsung Galaxy Note is very clean and always looks brand new. The Samsung Galaxy Note is very light and so far I have never dropped it!
The battery of the Samsung Galaxy Note has a capacity of 7000 mAh. The standby time is 1500 hours. The battery is made of lithium ion and polymer. So far the battery usage has been very good and I only have to charge the Samsung Galaxy Note every other day.
I would definitely recommend that you buy the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 as it is very user-friendly and has a very receptive and responsive screen!
Review on Apple iPad 4 (128GB WiFi + Cellular)
I brought an Apple iPad 4 with retina display in September 2013 this year from Littlewoods for £829. I decided not to purchase the two year service guarantee that was available for £75 or the three year protection that was available for £150, as I decided to purchase the guarantee after the one year warranty has expired. This particular version of Apple iPad 4 uses Cellular Technology (3G and 4G). This means that it has mobile data capability and you can insert a micro-sim obtained with a data plan to access the internet. The data plan that I am currently using is with 02 for 2GB costing about £15 a month (30 days recurring). The cellular technology feature also means that you can access fast networks around the world such as HSPA and HSPA+. I have not tried accessing the HSPA and HSPA+ network yet. The memory storage is 128GB which is more than enough for me! The processor of the Apple iPad 4 is dual-core Apple A6X. I have noticed that the speed of the Apple iPad 4 is very very fast (twice as fast as my old Apple iPad) and its most probably because of this processor!
Preloaded Software and Apps
The Apple iPad 4 has a lot of preloaded software which includes clock, mail, notes, contacts, messages, camera, facetime tomake calls, photobooth, safari, videos, photos, appstore, maps, game center, ibooks, itunes, newstand, siri (a talking Apple iPad assistant), icloud calendar, reminders and music. I was able to download a lot of good apps for my daughter to use. I upgraded the Apple iPad 4 to IOS 7 recently and this has improved the speed immensely and the touch screen has become more responsive. Since,I have upgraded it, I have also noticed that the display of icons is more animative and that the icons move like optical illusions when you tilt the screen of the Apple iPad 4
There is a notification centre in which you can choose the setting for today's view to include today's summary, calendar day view, reminders and tomorrow's summary. The control centre enables you to change the settings for accessing the control centre on the lock screen or to access it within apps. There is also a do not disturb option which can be quite handy when you don't want to be disturbed by facetime calls. The moon icon will appear in the status bar and any incoming facetime calls and alerts will be silenced.
Protecting and storage of the Apple iPad 4
I brought a black plastic shield cover for the Apple iPad 4 with retina display from Poundland for £1 and this cover slips on to the back of the Apple iPad 4 easily and is a perfect fit. This has protected the silver back of the IPad from getting any scratches. The maximum storage temperature of the iPad 4 is 45 degrees and the minimum storage temperature is -20 degrees. I tend to use my Apple iPad 4 at room temperature buts it is good to know that I can use it in the snow or in the scorching heat! I have been informed that the manufacturer's warranty is one year and that technical support and phone consulting is available for a year. The battery which is made of lithium polymer, has a run time of up to ten hours. The web browsing time over the cellular data network can last up to 9 hours.
I would definitely recommend that you buy the Apple iPad 4 with retina display as it so good a taking pictures and it is very portable. I hope you enjoyed reading the review I have written about Apple iPad 4. I will be posting this review on ciao and dooyoo.
Alberto VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo
Alberto VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo is a really good shampoo to use and it is quite different from
any other shampoo that I have used previously. It washes out all the grease in my hair, yet it does not
leave my hair too dry either.The shampoo is so good that I have often felt that I do not need to
use hair conditioner after I have used this shampoo.
Alberto VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo apparently has special adaptive haircare technology which is
patented and the shampoo apparently adapts to give your hair the appropriate nourishment required.
Does it smell good?
Alberto VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo smells like grape seed oil. The shampoo contains a blend of five
essential oils which are avacado oil, argan oil, apricot oil, grape seed oil and jojoba oil.
Value for Money
VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo costs £1.97 for 500ml at Superdrug , £3.99 for 500ml at Boots, £3.90 for
500ml at Asda, £1.95 at Tesco, £3.90 for 500ml at Sainsbury's and £3.90 at Ocado.
Why did I buy VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo?
I brought VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo to use on my frizzy hair days, especially when there is
rainy weather! The bottle/contents needs to be discarded after 12 months of opening the bottle.
How does it feel after use?
To apply the shampoo, just lather into wet hair and wash it off afterwards. After using VO5
Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo, my hair has felt more soft and less greasy and more silky. It
does not feel dehydrated or rough.
I would definitely recommend that you use Alberto VO5 Gloss Me Smoothly Shampoo because it
contains a blend of five oils and this content/balance is quite difficult to get in other shampoo's!
About Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother
This review is about Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother which can be used on the face and the body. I have very sensitive skin and I tend to get sunburnt quite often. Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother is quite expensive at £26 but I brought it anyway to combat those vicious times when I get sunburnt.
The Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother is a balm that you can apply to your skin when you get sunburnt. I only use a tiny bit and the balm is quite waxy and smells good! The best thing about the balm is that it is made from plant extracts. When I use the balm, it reduces the peeling and the redness and the staying power is very good. My skin tends to return to normal much quickly and I think spending £26 on Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother is worth it!
Cost of Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother
Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother is listed to buy on lookfantastic.com for £26 for 40ml and salonskincare.co.uk for £23.40 but it seems to be out of stock on all the sites. It could be that the product has been sadly discontinued.
I would recommend that you buy Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother if you can afford it and if you find it online as I mentioned earlier that it has been discontinued. Clarins SOS Sunburn Soother can be used on adults and children. I will be buying another tub again when this one finishes!
About Babyliss Nano Hairdryer
Babyliss is a well-know hair care brand. They manufacture hairdryers, hair straightening irons, curling tongs etc. I brought thebabyliss nano hairdryer for use when going on holiday or short trips. It is a very light hairdryer and fits neatly away in the suitcase.
The Babyliss Nano Hairdryerhas a manufacturer warranty period of three years, and I have owned this hairdryer since June 2013 so I am hoping that no problems occur after three years!
Value for money
Babyliss Nano Hairdryer at the time of writing this review,currently costs only £10 at Tesco, £11.99 at Argos, £10.80 at Debenhams and strangely £3.75 at Boots. Babyliss Nano Hairdryer is available in different colours such as pink, purple, blue and green. I brought the Babyliss Nano hairdryer in pink, for £15 from Littlewoods.
Ease of use
The cord length of Babyliss Nano Hairdryer is 1.8 metres which is decent enough for the hairdryer to extend from the wall, to way beyond the height of the dressing table and I am able to dry my hair with ease. The babyliss nano hairdryer uses power of 1200 watts. There are 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings. I am to dry my hair quite quickly using this hairdryer and I get good heat coverage and my hair is usually dry within minutes. I use the 2nd speed setting and 3rd heat setting to get the maximum effect. The concentrator nozzle is good at focusing on the section of hair on the paddle brush but I do feel that its not good for drying the scalp as the heat is too concentrated.
Conclusion about Babyliss Nano Hairdryer
I would suggest that you buy the Babyliss Nano Hairdryer if you are looking for a hairdryer to take on holiday or for just quick drying. It is not really suitable for drying long thick hair though!
Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter
I brought a 200ml tub of Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter from the Marks and Spencers brand a couple of months ago. The cream is really nice and is great to use after you have had a shower. It is very light and is easily absorbed into the skin. It smooths my skin and makes it shiny. Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter costs £4 at Marks and Spencers.
Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter is not recommended for facial use (I have never used it on my face because its a body cream!). Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Light Body Cream is made in China but manufactured for Marks and Spencers Plc (Chester,UK). Once you have opened the tub, you need to use it
within twenty four months.
Conclusion about Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter
I would definitely recommend that you buy Royal Jelly and Pure Honey Body Butter from Marks and Spencers as it really makes the skin smell great and makes
the skin shiny and smooth.
About nivea cashmere moments shower cream
I have been using nivea cashmere moments shower cream for about six months now. My skin was getting dry from
using harsh soap bars so I decided to use something which was more oil based and came across Nivea Cashmere
Once you open the bottle, you need to use the Nivea cashmere moments shower cream within twelve months as it only has
a shelf life of twelve months.
Does it smell good?
Nivea cashmere moments shower cream smells really nice and refreshing and is great to use during an evening shower.
Value for money
Nivea cashmere moments shower cream costs £1.95 in Superdrugs for 250ml and £1.99 for 250ml in Boots and I think that is great value for money.
Why did you buy it?
The reason for buying Nivea cashmere moments shower cream was because it is oil based and because it is resonably priced. A little drop does tend to go a
long way as well!
How does it affect your skin?
I have sensitive skin and Nivea cashmere moments shower cream doesn't irritate or sting my skin at all. I would say that Nivea cashmere moments shower cream
dehydrates, smoothens, cleanses, refreshes and moisturises my skin effectively.
Nivea cashmere moments shower cream contains cashmere extract and also contains sensual orchid blosson scent. It use Hydra IQ moisture technology to make the skin
feel soft and I have to say that I can really see the difference.Nivea cashmere moments shower cream also contains aqua, sodium laureth sulphate, parfum,
glycerin and a couple of other ingredients. Nivea cashmere moments shower cream is made in Germany. It is not harsh on the skin at all because it is pH skin
balanced and dermatologically approved.
I would recommend that you buy Nivea cashmere moments shower cream!
Introduction about Professional GHD salon styler with ceramic technology
I have owned a GHD Salon styler for many years now. It cost me about £100 at the time and it still works in perfect condition. For those of you that don't know, GHD stands for "Good Hair Day" and they are well known for producing top quality hair straighteners and hair products.
To switch on the hair straightener,you have to plug the straightener into the wall, and then move the on/off switch to on, on the handle of the straightener. When you switch on the hair straightener,the red led light goes on. There is only one heat setting on the hair straighten and this is all that is required really. The GHD Salon styler hair straightener heats up immediately and I usually wait at least a minute until it heats up.The ceramic plate of the hair straightener is quite wide and is great at straightening the hair quickly as it can capture many strands at once! I have always felt that my hair is very sleek, smooth and soft after using the GHD hair straightener and that it produces excellent results.
The cord of the GHD Salon styler is very long and this is very convenient when straightening hair. However, I did once manage to burn the cord slightly
on the ceramic plate but this has had no effect on the quality output of the hair straightener. The GHD Salon styler that I own is black. The plug on the GHD hair straightener is very strong and has never required replacing. Even the fuse has never blown!
Prior to buying a GHD, I owned many straighteners,including straighteners where you had to pour water and steam the hair straight. After buying the GHD , I never had to buy another hair straightener again for many years and even though it was much costlier, it has defintely been worth it!I would definitely recommend that you use the GHD salon styler with ceramic technology as it is long lasting
and produces quality hair straightening results.
I brought the Samsung Galaxy SIII in September 2012 to use at work. I have been very please about buying this phone and it is one of the best phones I have ever owned in my life.
Protecting the phone from wear and tear
The first thing I did when I brought the Samsung Galaxy SIII was to purchase a screen protector and phone cover to protect the phone from scratches and damage.
The screen protector and phone cover costs me roughly about £30.
Look and feel
The look and feel of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is excellent, very lightweight and
so smooth to carry around. The phone just looks fantastic!
Durability and Robustness
The durability of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is excellent and the speed of the
phone is the same as when I brought it. I was slightly dissapointed when I dropped the phone on the floor, one day after I brought it and there was a slight scratch on the right hand corner of the phone. This is what encouraged me to buy a screen protector!
Battery standby time
The battery standby time is very good and I can talk on the phone for hours/days before the battery drains! I always choose the power saving mode and this enables the phone battery to last much longer!
Value for money and range of features
I currently have an Orange mobile contract for this phone. It is expensive, however it is definitely worth it, as the Samsung Galaxy SIII has many uses (alarm clock, calendar, calculator - several gadgets rolled into one!). I use the alarm clock on a daily basis to wake up as I cannot wake up on time without it! There are options to set-up multiple alarms on various days! There is also an option for a stopwatch and timer! There are widgets available for assisted light, weather, Yahoo news, youtube etc. I have also downloaded several apps on the phone such as facebook, viber, skype, tango etc.
The camera quality of the Samsung Galaxy SIII is so good, that I didn't feel the need to purchase a professional camera. The camera has several shooting modes such as single shot, best shot, share shot, buddy photo share, beauty and smile shot. The camera has an effects option as well. The options offered include negative, cartoonify, washed out, red-yellow point,blue point, green point, solarise, posterise,
warm vintage,cold vintage, sepia and black and white. The best side effect that I like is blue point. There is also an option for self portrait (I use this option often to take
pictures of myself - Yes I am vain!).
I would definitely recommend that you buy the Samsung Galaxy SIII as it a trendy and very useful for everyday use!
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum has always been a perfume that I save for special occasions. I only wear it when I am going to weddings or when I am going to church for sunday mass or for special evenings. Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is made in France. The brand Paco Rabanne was started by a spanish fashion deisgner called "Paco Rabanne " and he was born 18 February 1934. This is one of the perfumes that I am proud to have on my dressing table and it is always dutifully replaced when the perfume bottle finishes.
The staying power of Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is excellent and the smell stays on clothes for days. The top notes are neroli, lemon and rasberry. The heart notes are jasmine, orange, flower and gardenia. The base notes are patchouli, honey and amber. The perfume smells sort of fruity and the scents of jasmine and orange stand out most for me when I wear it!
Design of the bottle
The design of the bottle of Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is very compact and pretty. The top cap of the bottle is gold and is an octogon shape. The square on the lid has the logo which says Lady Million in curly handwriting. The rest of the bottle is made of glass and is also in an octogon like shape. Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is a light whisky yellow shade in colour.
Value for money
Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum is definitely value for money as a little a goes a long way! At the time of writing this review, Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum costs the following at:
The Fragrance Shop - 30ml bottle costs £35.99, 50ml bottle costs £41.99, and an 80ml costs £64.50 (plus a free bag for the 80ml).

After conducting the price comparison above, I was quite shocked to see how the price of 30ml bottle of Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum varies at different shops. It seems that at the time of writing this review, Fragrance Direct is selling this perfume for lowest price.
I would definitely recommend that you buy Paco Rabanne Lady Million Eau de Parfum as it has great staying power and smells really nice and fruity.
Bosch is a well known brand that was established in 1886 and thats why I purchased the dishwasher from them in July 2003. This review is about the bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB. We brought the bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB in July 2003 and we still use the bosch dishwasher to this present day.
About the dishwasher
The bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB is a built in dishwasher. The dishwasher is nicely located in the kitchen and is nicely fitted into the kitchen unit. The performance of the bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB is of excellent quality and it washes the dishes so that they are crystal clean! The ease of use of the dishwasher is simple to use and it is easy to work out how to use the dishwasher on first use. The power button for the bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB is located on the left front hand panel. The power is highlighted with a red line so it is fairly obvious that it is the power button. The durability of the Bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313G is excellent and is now in its eleventh year of use.
The Bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB costed about £350 in July 2003. I have checked out a couple of websites and current dishwashers sold by Bosch are in the same price range, ranging from two hundred and fifty pounds to five hundred pounds and I think this is a fairly reasonable price range. The Bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB does not make much noise when it is in use and is fairly silent. The dishwasher presented slight water leakage in 2007. It happened when I was upstairs and suddenly when I came downstairs , there was a large pool of water in the kitchen and that is when I realised the dishwasher was leaking. This problem was quickly resolved by calling the engineer and they replaced some parts within seven working days and it has been working perfectly since that incident. This bosch dishwasher has been made in Germany as it is stated on the front opening of the front door of the dishwasher. The bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB has several options for washing at 65 degrees and 55 degrees. I prefer to wash all the dishes at 65 degrees as this seems to get the dishes crystal clean all the time! The bosch dishwasher model number SHV4313GB warms up and cools down quite quickly all the time.
I was so impressed by the Bosch brand because of purchasing this dishwasher many many years ago and I have decided that I will try my best to buy future appliances from Bosch because of the excellent quality as they also sell appliances such as tumble dyers, fridges, freezers, vacuum cleaners, steam irons, kettles, toasters and hot drinks machines. I would definitely recommend that you purchase a similar dishwasher from Bosch. This exact model is not currently sold by Bosch as this version was on sale in 2003.
I began wearing Burberry Perfume in 2003 and its one of my signature perfumes as I always wear it during the day and on evenings. Since then I have always worn Burberry Perfume and it has been one my favourite perfumes.This perfume was manufactured by Burberry Group. As Burberry is an iconic british luxary brand established in 1856, wearing this perfume also makes me feel like I am wearing a luxary perfume! In the past I have also worn other Burberry accessories with the check design such as the burberry handbags and scarves and I used to compliment it by spraying Burberry perfume on it.
The scent of Burberry Perfume and the bottle
Burberry Perfume is very unique and I am able to easily detect this fragrance if anyone is wearing it nearby! The Burberry Perfume smells fantastic and it really is a enchanting smell.The heart notes of Burberry Perfume are Jasmine, Sandalwood and Moss. The top notes are Bergamot, Tagete, Blackcurrant and Green apple. The base notes are Musk and Vanilla. The smells of Bergamot and Vanilla stand out most for me and I love this intense smell of Burberry Perfume. The staying power of Burberry Perfume is very good and a little goes a long way.
The bottle of Burberry Perfume is very strong and I have dropped it on the floor once and it remained undamaged. The bottle of Burberry Perfume is very original and there is nothing fancy about it but it serves its purpose. The cap is very strong and it remains tightly on the bottle and stops the fragrance from escaping from the bottle. The colour of the perfume is dark yellow and it sort of looks like whisky inside a mini bottle! As the bottle is clear the perfume can be seen through the bottle.
Burberry Perfume is very affordable and can be obtained at a good price, if you shop around for a bargain.
At the time of writing this review, Burberry Perfume currently costs:
* £19.99 for 30ml of Burberry Perfume at The Perfume Shop
* £15.50 for 30ml of Burberry Perfume, £23.50 for 50ml and £32.50 for 100ml online at cheapsmells.com
* £15.99 for 30ml of Burberry Perfume, £25.00 for 50ml and £27.99 for 100ml online at chemistdirect.co.uk
Please make sure you buy Burberry as it has a really nice smell and you will never regret buying it.
The Braun Electric Shaver Series 1-190
I bought the Braun Cordless Shaver from Argos for about £40 in 2010.
I use the Braun Electric Shaver to shave my legs. It is currently available from Sainsbury's for £69.99
About The Braun Cordless Shaver
The Braun Cordless Shaver mainly grey and black and it has 1 vibrating foil. The power supply that can be used is mains and rechargeable, the charge seems to last four to five days if I use it sparingly! The Braun Cordless Shaver is washable. The trimmer is a black sliding panal with the trimmer at the end, which is pushed out for use and can used for trimming sideburns but it is not that effective as it's not so precise (yes I tried trimming my lady sideburns once once but not doing that again)! The rest of the shaver is also dark grey with exception of the border of the section surrounding the trimmer which is light grey and this section has the logo braun written on it. I use the Braun Electric Shaver to shave my legs and it gives a clean shave. To switch on the shaver you have to press the power button which is located in the middle section of the shaver.The button has the work "run" written on it. The Braun Braun Cordless Shaver also has a removable plastic casing to protect the shaver end of the electric shaver.
I would definitely recommend that you buy the Braun Cordless Shaver because it is of excellent quality and gives a clean shave.
About the perfume
I received the "Paco Rabanne Black XS Pour Elle Eau de Toilette Spray" perfume as a Christmas present. I actually received in a gift box set which also contained the matching 100ml body lotion for the Paco Rabanne spray. The box set consisted of a pink metallic tin and I have re-used the tin box as a keepsake box.
The design of the bottle
The bottle of the perfume is beautiful. The design of the bottle is in a lovely heart shape with a rose engraved on the front of the glass bottle. The colour of the bottle is dark pink and the name of the pefume "Black XS"is engraved on the front of the bottle in italic silver writing. The top spray nozzle is black and the base of the nozzle is in an octagon shape and this helps stop you from dropping the bottle as the octagon shape gives you grip to hold the bottle.
The smell of the perfume
The smell of the perfume is fruity/flowery. The top notes are pink pepper berries and cranberries. The base notes are patchouli and black vanilla. The heart notes are cocoa flower. The perfume has excellent staying power. It is a nostalgic smell.
The Paco Rabanne Black XS Perfume Spray currently costs £27.50 for 30ml, £37.50 for 50ml and £51.50 for 80ml at the perfume shop. I would definitely recommend that you buy this perfume as it smells gorgeous and looks good on the dressing table! I hope you enjoyed reading this review. I have also posted this review on ciao.co.uk under my same username Angela150.
