Soap and Glory Original Pink - Spring Fragrance

My plan for today was to create a nice spring-like post, which went into my new spring perfume and marveled at how lovely spring was coming along. There was only one problem with this delightful plan: the bucket-loads of snow which happened to fall last night, before I had a chance to take some photos.. however the show must go on! So today, my 'Spring Fragrance' has a slightly more wintery theme to it - and I thought I'd make use of the gorgeous snow backdrop to take some photos anyway, however unconnected the two may be.

Firstly, I thought I'd just show you what my backdrop was when taking the photos - the snow looks absolutely stunning! Donning my snowboots and big dufflecoat just to venture onto the balcony was so worth it for this..

Now onto the real stuff, my actual review:

I picked up this little baby on a whim in Boots the other day - I've heard brief mentions about it on some other blogs but nothing too much, but seeing as I adore everything Soap and Glory, I figured how bad could it be?! The answer is, of course, not bad at all!

Firstly, I loved the packaging - the classic pink of Soap & Glory with the little raised sections, and the silver logo in the middle. The bottle is a cute little round one, with ribbon and baby pink writing - though the mirrored silver bottle gets smudged and fingerprint-ey far too easily.

It's scent is fresh and light, and described as fresh citrus top notes of orange leaf, lemon, peach and sweet strawberries, with a sparkling heart of mandarin. Basically, it's a gorgeous mix of fruity fragrances which mainly focus around citrus. If you're not into overly sweet smells then this may not be for you - but for a girl like me who loves the classic Soap and Glory sweet girly scents then this is gorgeous! As I said earlier, I was planning to say that this was the perfect scent to take you into Spring, but I guess we might be waiting a bit longer than expected for that..

It only retails for £16.50, which personally I find very unoffensive for a fragrance, and I would probably be prepared to pay up to about £20 for this.

The only negative point I would have about this is that it doesn't have the staying power of some of the higher end perfumes, but it's still great as a quick freshen up or top-up throughout the day.
