Happy Sunday lovely people! The sun has been shining on Skye again and made me feel all happy and hopeful that spring is just around the corner. That also means that summer isn’t all that far away now, so it’s time to start thinking about what the season has in store for all us beauty lovers.
So…? Fragrance are one of those cult favourites that quietly go about their business of creating gorgeous wearable scents that any girl will love, and they really do know what they’re doing. The team at So…? have been kind enough to send me a little sneak peek at their new summer line in the form of four new body mist scents* and I thought I’d do a little run down/first impressions post about them today!
First order of business is the packaging as always. And the So…? Body Mists are really simple, clean and fresh looking. They give me all kinds of summer vibes and I love that they look so good together.
Vanilla scents are a favourite of mine (and Dan’s it would seem as this is his favourite!) They remind me of ice cream and baking and all that good Sunday vibe stuff. I think it’s sometimes a fine line between being a gorgeous scent and being too over-powering and a little dated, but So…? have walked this line perfectly and this fragrance is really fresh and comforting to me.
Possibly the one that I’ll reach for the most over the summer, Iced Melon is light and crisp, and gives you that feeling of a refreshing summer breeze. I already know that this one will be in my bag all summer and I’ll use it as a pick-me-up throughout those mad summer days while I run around at work like a maniac!
So…? Body Mists are light wearing, they’re not heavy feeling fragrances that weigh you down, but the Rose Petal mist smells like a special occasion to me. This one will be great for summer evenings and date nights when you want to feel a little more glamorous but still have that fresh, light scent to reach for.
If I’m honest, grapefruit isn’t a scent I’d have ever chosen for myself, purely because I’d have thought it might be too sickly sweet, but I think the fact that this is a mist and not a perfume makes it light enough that I actually really like it. Definitely a go to for lunches outside in the sun or afternoon dates.
I’m really impressed with So…? for several reasons – their branding is really strong, recognisable and chic; the scents they’re putting out are fresh and clean, wear well through the day, and are suitable for so many different occasions; and to top it all off, they’re just lovely people! All of these products are really gorgeous, well made, and the best part is the packing seems really tough as well as good-looking, so I think they’ll survive my handbag really well! Thank you to So…? for sending me some truly lovely goodies to play with!
