Scent Swatch Review – For Scents Inspired By..

How often do you change your fragrance and how do you wear your perfume? I have a favorite  and that’s Narcisso Rodriguez EDP and EDT both for daytime and nighttime but sometimes I sway to try different scents when I get tired of them but I keep going back to my favorite of course. Do you have a signature scent? I wear my signature fragrance when I’m going out on a date, meeting, or anywhere I would like them to remember me by how I smell. Sort of like an imprint.
I was fortunate enough to receive a few gifts from scent swatch and they’re based on my perfoume favorites like Blvgari Omnia Crystalline and Jo Malone’s White Jasmine and Mint. Oooh a Black XS inspired perfume to for Mr. John Castle! These scents come in small atomizer bottles with simple but classy label. Scent Swatch manufactures designer-inspired scents for those who are on a budget. Not everyone can afford to put on an expensive perfume on a daily basis right?

 

Review

I love it! Most designer-inspired fragrance brands are actually FAAAAR from what the actual perfumes smell like but Scent Swatch is different!  I own the original Blvgari Omnia and I must say Scent Swatch really captures the feel of the fragrance upon initial spray. It also lasts long too, look at the bottle, their fragrances are in Eau de Parfum.  After the scent settles down on my skin it transforms into something lighter, albeit fresher. Take note, these are scents like. While it cannot capture the exact scent, like Crystalline’s sharp citrus notes on the first spray while it warms down too a woody musk by the time you go to the heart. It still retains the heart which is the white florals.
Since it’s just 90php per bottle (10ml) it doesn’t feel wasteful spraying it throughout the day, you might not even do this because it lasts long!

Kikaysikat Tip: There are several type of perfume concentrations which varies on how long lasting and pure the scent is. This is in order from strongest to weakest: Eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette, Eau de Cologne.

Will I buy again?

Certainly! They’re affordable at 90php per bottle and it’s cute to give as gifts! They have a wide array of fragrances to choose from too! I hope they make a version of Narcisso Rodriguez!

    I'm quite sensitive when it comes to perfumes, colognes, or scents. I can't handle hard scent. Been a vivid user of Victoria secrets perfumes. And this is a must try and very affordable 🙂

    really P90 per bottle? are these available in the leading malls in manila?

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva August 18, 2014 at 2:05 pm

    The smell of a person belongs to the perfume she's using and the ability to interact into her personality.

  • Reply Kaycee Enerva August 19, 2014 at 4:02 am

    Some brands actually get it right. The best way to test it out is to spray on the inspired scent, then just go to the mall and match it with the original. These days, a lot of the indie brands can replicate so well you can hardly tell the difference.

    I also have trust issues. After my Ex cheated on me (several times), everytime someone asks to court me I will eventually say YES but as the days go by I got scared, thinking that: He will cheat on me too, he will hurt me too (physically and emotionally), he is just good at first but eventually will turn into a monster. now my two best-friends broke my trust by mouthing gossips (not true) to our common friends (such as: I'm an attention seeker, i am so loud, that I'm boastful, I'm bossy) fortunately a concerned citizen shared to me their conversation when she asked one of them, "bakit niyo siya sinisiraan sa ibang kaibigan ninyo? Akala ko ba best friend mo siya? Eh bakit di mo nalang siya kausapin kung may hinanakit ka sa kaniya, maiintindihan ka niya maniwala ka sakin." And then she said that NASASAPAWAN SIYA or SHE is overpowered and everyone is fond of making friends with me. After I heard that I immediately talked to her but giving me a different reason saying, she is just stressed and lonely while crying, but for me I think there's no point in crying, lying and saying sorry if you are fond of doing the same to other people "I AM NOT THE FIRST AND ONLY PERSON SHE BACKSTAB" there are lots of people but lucky her, they didn't knew. That's why I Am not into trusting people but YES, I do make friends with FEW, care for them, cook them food, invite them in our house etc. BUT I'm a keen observer behind my sweet smile and a stronger personality I guess 🙂
