Got this for christmas, should i return or keep???

sebsmummy1 Sat 27-Dec-14 18:28:49

I've heard it's very nice. So I say keep.

dexter73 Sat 27-Dec-14 18:36:05

Why don't you try it in a shop and see if you like it?

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 18:42:59

Going to do that dexter, just scared to go near the shops for next few days! grin

Cheesymonster Sat 27-Dec-14 18:48:30

It's nice. I was torn between that and flowerbomb and ended up getting flowerbomb for Xmas.

Keep, but don't overdo it as a little goes a loooong way.

I love it. It's quite 'different' but very nice. I tried some in a shop and wasn't overly keen at first, then kept getting little whiffs of it all afternoon and it grew on me and now it's my favourite perfume!

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 19:05:08

I used to love angel when it came out thats why dh bought me it, but i have went right off it.

dexter73 Sat 27-Dec-14 19:28:53

I like the smell of it but I know it can be a bit overpowering to some.

scandichick Sat 27-Dec-14 19:43:49

I like it, but I'd strongly recommend putting it on the night before to let it evaporate a little before going out among people...

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 20:09:07

He also bought me pure by rihanna, but i just don't fancy having a celeb perfume, seems weird smile

suze28 Sat 27-Dec-14 20:35:36

I used to love it until someone I know bought it and proceeded to liberally douse herself with it. Cloying didn't even come close.
It's lovely but in very small amounts.

luckylala Sat 27-Dec-14 21:03:14

It's lovely, strong but different. Would buy it again.

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 21:03:22

Sorry, nude by rihanna, what else grin

Lolly86 Sat 27-Dec-14 21:04:31

MakeMeWarmThisWinter Sat 27-Dec-14 21:06:00

I have it - utterly gorgeous. It's a great evening perfume and different to the ubiquitous Chanel Coco Mademoiselle. Strong though!

BeHoHoHove Sat 27-Dec-14 21:06:29

I love it. Keep it definitely.

BeHoHoHove Sat 27-Dec-14 21:07:02

Lovely presents btw

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 21:10:44

Thank you, lovely dh smile

sebsmummy1 Sat 27-Dec-14 21:12:10

I bought Nude by Rhianna and it smells lovely, a real daytime fragrance. Some celeb perfumes are actually pretty good!

itsnothingoriginal Sat 27-Dec-14 21:32:04

I like Alien but doesn't last on me at all! Not like Angel used to (needed a brillo pad to scrub that one off!)

Agree some of the celeb perfumes are surprisingly nice although haven't tried that one admittedly.

Return if you're not 100% convinced though.. there are too many gorgeous perfumes out there to own any you aren't sure about!

MsUumellmahaye Sat 27-Dec-14 21:48:08

I think its my angel memories putting me off, i did love it when it first came out though. Funny how tastes change.
