Summer in a can: So?...Couture Body Fragrance


Summer has finally hit the UK and I for one am very happy about this! The only problem I have is commuting to London every day (2 hours each way no less), so if I have an event to go to after work or a sticky tube journey to contend with I like to freshen up where possible. I've been testing out the new So...? Couture Body Fragrances* and they've been a bit of a savour already!

It's been years since I used body sprays and I'd forgotten just how fun and really handy they are. The So...? Couture range reminds me of teenage years past, but they're much more sophisticated than what was available when I was (much) younger. The range features four scents, designed to encapsulate the vibe of four major cities. As far as fragrances go they are all on the sweet side, but at the same time they're are quite sophisticated and refreshing.

So?...London is quite sweet with top notes of grapefruit, apricot and mandarin, which are complemented with jasmine, violet and rose at the heart to give it a floral layer. The base notes of vanilla and musk make this a much more grown-up scent which gently lingers.

So?...NYC is most definitely my favourite, and not just because red is my favourite colour! A little bit more out there and bold, it has lovely top notes of lychee, peach and violet. The heart notes consist of gorgeous orange flower which is one of my favourite florals, along with jasmine and rose. The base notes consist of cedarwood which I absolutely adore, as well as patchouli and praline which make such a dreamy concoction.

So?...Paris, which is based on such an iconic and stylish city, has top notes of mandarin which is just gorgeous, as well as plum and violet for a deeper scent. The heart notes are hawthorn and helotrope, neither of which I think I've seen in fragrance before, along with rose for good measure. There's also vetyvr, vanilla and patchouli which give it a bit of musky spice.

Last up is So?...Rio, which is basically summer in a can. It's super citrusy thanks to a blend of pineapple, mango and melon in the top notes. The heart notes comprise of jasmine (which reminds me of summer anyway), along with orchid and hibiscus. The base notes give it a deeper warm summer feeling thanks to amber, vanilla and musk.

I've been popping one of these body sprays in my bag so that whatever the day (and weather) throws at me I can have a little spritz and feel much fresher at the same time. I find that all of the So...? Couture body sprays last quite a while, so even though they won't stop you from perspiring they provide the perfect 5pm pick me up before you head to the bar. Mine's a large Pimms please...with an umbrella!

Are you a fan of body sprays?
