Fragrance | Benefit Mini Perfumes

August 9, 2013

Benefit are known for their outstanding gift sets and beauty kits. They’re a incredible way of trying and testing out products before actually buying one full size. Last Christmas, I received the Benefit ‘Crescent Row’ Set which included four 10ml bottles of some of their eau de toilettes. Even though the set was limited edition, all fragrances are still available to buy seperately. Here’s what I think…

In this particular set I feel Benefit delivered, picking out two of their stereotypical flirty ‘day time’ scents and two of their sultry ‘night time’ scents. Ring My Bella is certainly the fruitiest of the four. With top notes of pink rose petals, soft lily and summer daisy, it’s the perfect summer scent. If your a fan of floral fragrances, this one is for you. Laugh with me LeeLee is still floral, but not quite as overwhelming as the others. It packs a tiny subtle punch with melon and citrus, however, it’s not as ‘in your face’ as some of the others can be.

My favourite of the four has to be My place or yours Gina. Considering I’m more into floral scents during the day, this seductive fragrance is perfect for nights out. It’s almost glamorous, having top notes of pink pepper, bergamot and tangerine. I always seem to get compliments when I wear this as well. Finally, See & be seen Sasha; When I smell this it makes me think I’d wear it to wine & dine on an evening at The Ritz. I’d consider it a day-to-night scent as it’s a mix orange flower and apricot. I don’t know why, but it feels a bit ‘grown up’ for me.

I’d definitely recommend taking a whiff of these next time your at a Benefit counter – they have some amazing fragrances! Keep a look out if they ever bring a mini set out like this again too because they’re so worth it! Have you tried any of the Benefit fragrances? Which do you think would suit you best?
