Cheryl’s perfume launch earlier in the summer was slightly (just slightly) over-shadowed by her shock marriage to Jean-Bernard Fernandez-Versini (which is quite a name to learn to spell) in July. After changing her ‘stage’ name to simply ‘Cheryl’, she launched the perfume alongside her new beau in London later in the month. Despite all the press and controversy surrounding the beauty item, it’s surprisingly good for a celebrity item!
Housed in a rather luxurious looking gold bottle, with a protruding flower acting as the lid, the product itself oozes sophistication and would look really pretty on any dressing table. It’s quite a show piece in itself and initially, I was worried the fragrance itself would be rather dull in comparison however luckily – this isn’t the case.
Renowned for her girlie, princess like dresses, I assumed Cheryl’s perfume would be full of sweet, floral notes however it’s quite the contrary. The main scents I noted were vanilla musk, sandalwood and peach – which is an interestingly creative, but well put together mix – resulting in a very glamorous, evening perfume. It’s very difficult to ‘describe’ a fragrance to someone who hasn’t had a good sniff of it, however I can honestly say – this is bound to be a winner.
I love musky scents for the Winter/Christmas party season and think this would make a fabulous gift or treat for yourself. Priced at £23.95 for 30ml, this is within the right kind of price range for her fan base and my only complaint is that she didn’t bring out a fragrance sooner!
Have you tried Cheryl’s fragrance yet? What were your initial thoughts? Are you a fan of celebrity fragrances – or do you find them too ‘gimmicky’?
