As I was casually browsing the isles of my local Boots one Saturday, I came across a fancy looking product I hadn’t seen before. Meet ‘Q’ - A Women’s Body Spray Collection.
Priced at just over £2, I popped one into my shopping basket. I opted for the fragrance named ‘Radiance’ as it contained some of my favourite scents including rose and orchid.
I sprayed this onto my scarf the moment I got into my car and loved it! It smelt so lady-like yet not old fashioned as some rose scents often do. Pleased with my find, I informed the brand of my happiness and was then offered the range to test.
Having had all 3 sprays for a number of months now, I can say I am an addict. The cans seem to be everlasting as they are nowhere near finished and I use them daily.
Here’s an outline of the fragrances available as described by Q:
Awe – ‘A fresh and citrus based scent, with a floral aroma opening and top notes of bergamot and Sicilian lemon, which is followed by a green tea accord. The floral heart of this light spray is dominated by a summer freesia bouquet and supported by a rich smooth background of cedarwood, amber and musk‘
Radiance – ‘A modern and sophisticated floral fragrance, with top notes of champaka flower, mandarin and ivy, which leads into a heart of rose, violet and exotic orchid. The base consists of wild plum and blackberry musk.’
Balance – ‘A fruity, floral fragrance which is bright and flirtatious, opening with radiant bergamot and pear blossom, the romantic heart is conveyed with pink peony, stargazer rose and luminous orchid, on a sensual base of forbidden woods and crème de musk.‘
Radiance is still my favourite as it’s just my kind of scent, but I also love ‘Balance’ on occasions as it’s such an unusual, enchanting scent.
What I love about these sprays, is that they leave you fresh all day into the evening. I apply my deodorant as usual then tend to lightly mist this all over my body before getting dressed. The scent lasts well, but I like to ‘top up’ around lunchtime.
Given the ingredients, packaging and outcome of the product, I would expect a much higher value applied to it. For £2.29 its a must for your handbag this Spring
