As promised here is review #1 of the Chi Chi "Meet the Girls" EDP sprays set I bought on special the other day at Myer. Thought I'd start with one I already know (and love), and I even had a big bottle of it tucked way, just waiting for a space on my perfume shelf (which is starting to sag lol)...
Adore this sparkling zesty fragrance, although to me it smells more like passionfruit than Peach & Mango. But hey, we all know that the sense of smell is so personal and subjective, and I sure don't care that my nose picks up something different to what's on the label - I adore the scent of passionfruit anyway! The first spray is positively mind-blowing, an absolute explosion of juicy fruit sweetness, but in a matter of minutes, it fades down to something more manageable in enclosed spaces...
It's just perfect for hot Summer weather - cooling and unbelievably refreshing, and it doesn't last more than three hours on my skin, which is my preference for steamy days. The ingredients list contains no natural products other than water, but it doesn't smell fake at all, and there's no need to be concerned with it staining your clothing - it's just the glass that's coloured orange, the liquid itself is clear.
The bottle has a classic almost antique look to it, but there's not one thing old about this little gem. It apparently contains bergamot, mandarin, amber and sandalwood, but I really can't detect any base notes - all I can smell is fruit, fruit and more fruit ha ha!
Love it to the moon and back. Of all the fruity scents in this collection, this is my favourite - tropical girly fun ♥
Take care of you,
