I have to admit, I don’t usually look at the perfumes in New Look, but I’m so glad I’ve discovered this one. It’s called Blush and is a real snip at £9.99 for a 50ml bottle. Firstly, let’s see what New Look have to say…
A delicately fresh, oriental fragrance with a heart of Jasmine and Rose. Combined with a blend of Patchouli and Vetiver to create a scent that embodies the ultimate expression of femininity. A light citrusy, sophisticated fragrance for a sexy captivating woman.
The main thing I enjoy about this perfume is that it smells exactly like the iconic Chanel Coco Mademoiselle (my signature scent). I adore Coco Mademoiselle, whenever someone wafts past me wearing it, I get that warm fuzzy feeling – it smells of me, instantly recognisable and I Just love it.
With the likeness being so striking, I decided to compare the ingredients of the two fragrances and found that both Blush and Coco Mademoiselle contain middle and base notes of Jasmine, Rose, Vetiver and Patchouli so that would explain their similarity. Is this even allowed?
Another plus is that surprisingly, Blush is an Eau de Parfum, containing a higher concentration of perfume oils than an Eau de Toilette giving more staying power.
I like to think of Blush as the little sister of Coco, even the bottle design is not dissimilar to the afore-mentioned Chanel – just a smaller version and has a spray nozzle. The colour is a subtle pretty blush pink, again think Chanel.
I’m usually a high-end fragrance kind of gal, but this is definitely a fragrance I would repurchase (and have), simply because it’s such fab Chanel dupe without the hefty price tag. I like to spray my perfume quite liberally so I really get through it, that’s where Blush comes in, it’s so affordable – I won’t have to limit my usage.
