I just want to start this review off by saying how perfect Monsoon have got this perfume set. The name, the packaging and the scent -it's a bloggers dream. Rose gold is so popular, you only have to look on Pinterest and have a quick flick through Instagram to see it's bang on trend (or check out my blog redesign). I didn't realise Monsoon had fragrances and when I was sent this glamorous gift set I was instantly converted.
Monsoon have one current scent (following the self-named Monsoon scent previously) and they've gone for an elegant scent with top notes of citrus, rich floral heart notes and decadent woods making a feminine, sensual scent. There's notes of lemon, mandarin, vanilla, musk and amber. Definitely a scent that you can wear day or night. It's not sickly sweet and I think it's probably best for 20 year olds and up. It's just a little too sophisticated to be a teen scent but a good balance of fruit and floral. I've been using it nearly every day for work and it doesn't take many spritzes to give me a long lasting elegant scent. One women at work even asked if I was wearing Jo Malone, that's a mix up I don't mind!
The bottle is gorgeous. A tear drop shape with rose gold details and clear lid. It looks sophisticated and expensive. The body lotion carries on with the colour theme and looks gorgeous in the white and rose gold gift box. If you were to give this as a gift at Christmas time I'm sure the lucky recipient would be impressed before could even open the box up. It's a classy looking bottle that would look lovely on any dressing table.
The set makes for a brilliant gift but the Eau De Parfum is also available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles which is great for different budgets or those fussy people who don't use body lotions (I'm looking at you Mum). You can buy all 3 sized perfumes or the gift set online or in Monsoon stores. A lovely daily perfume that's got the luxury of high end fragrances with high street prices. What more could you ask for?
