The Cosmopolitan Fragrance | Review

I think most of us are pretty familiar with the magazine Cosmopolitan, I often pick up a copy to flick through every now and then, but what you might not know so well is the fragrance that they brought out a while ago. I wasn't aware of it until I saw a few bloggers and youtubers mention it not too long ago and I've now been lucky enough to give it a go. I've never been of those people who has 10 or 20 different perfumes sitting on their dressing table, I stick to have a few at once as I often find one scent that I adore and use that one over and over again. It just so happened that I'd run out of my favourite perfume just a week before this landed on my doorstep so it was a good test to see whether I'd miss my trusty Juicy Couture scent whilst I tried out something new.


Firstly I have to talk about the gorgeous bottle! I really love the ombre colours and the lid really reminds me of all the old perfumes that my Nan has lined up on her dressing table, all with very similar lids. This is the 30ml size which is plenty big enough but also small enough to carry around in your handbag.

My first impressions of the actual scent itself was that I couldn't quite decide whether it was a sweet scent or something a little spicier, this was until I read a bit more about it and found out that it actually contains both scents. It has top notes of mandarin, bergamot and red berries but also there is the surprising shot of spice that comes from the pimento berries. I have to say I think they've really got the scent bang on right, the mixture of everything blends together so nicely and it isn't overpowering at all. Vanilla is one of the base scents which I think is what makes this so easy to wear without it being too strong, it's a powerful scent but a delicate one at the same time. I have to say I really haven't missed my old favourites whilst I've been wearing this and I've had so many compliments since!

This 30ml size usually costs £28 from Boots but it's currently on offer for only £22.40! If you're looking for a new perfume to start off your 2016 then I'd definitely recommend popping in-store and giving this a smell.
