At first, I was a little taken aback by how strong the perfume was as I was expecting a really light fragrance, but the top notes were very powerful. However, after half an hour or so, I enjoyed the scent that had settled on my skin and it did give off that straight out of the shower vibe.
Clean girls, this one’s for you! My favourite note in a fragrance is neroli and this definitely came through more as the day went on, whereas the notes I picked up on in the opening were orange blossom and sea salt. If you’re looking for an affordable fragrance which lasts and turns heads as soon as you walk in the room, this one’s for you.

I wasn’t sure what to expect from a perfume called ‘Shower’. I was hoping for a fresh, invigorating scent which would wake me up and make me feel like I smelt *clean*. This didn’t do that job for me, sadly.
It had a muskier, more powdery scent than I was expecting which made me feel like it would be a little better suited for someone more mature. I usually go for fresher, fruitier fragrances, so I typically wouldn’t reach for this, but I did like the balance of sweetness in the scent.

This is just my sort of perfume – floral, but not saccharine; sexy, but not heavy; and perfectly powdery, but not soapy. It’s called ‘shower’ because it’s supposed to be reminiscent of that clean feeling of just stepping out the shower – a light, fresh ‘pick-me-up’ – but to me, it smells like sleepy summer afternoons, and transports me to a white-sand beach somewhere exotic, with salty sea air and sun cream sinking into my skin. That’s probably thanks to the notes of neroli, sea spray and orange blossom, which to me, smells like holiday. The bottle may only be 30ml, but as it’s an eau de parfum, the formula is more concentrated and will last for months (a few spritz go a long way). It takes a lot for me to give a product 10/10, but this perfume earns it.
