Oh yay! I fell in love with the first set of these Chi Chi Meet The Girls mini spray perfumes late last year (review here) - had my fingers crossed they'd release another collection, and thankfully my wish has come true ♥ It's such an economical way to try out the range, as well as add some purse and travel-friendly sized bottles to your daily fragrance choices. Aren't they just so pretty? They're so new, I can't even see them listed on their website yet...
Strawberry & Violet
Warm Vanilla Sugar
Berries & Cream
Coconut & Lime
You can rest assured I'll be reviewing the whole lot over the coming weeks - I've only tried two so far (endeavouring to extend the pleasure, but even I am amazed at my self-restraint lol), so here we go with the first samplers...
A sure bet for me - I adore the scent of Pink Grapefruit in just about anything. Chi Chi's take on it is a stunner - so fresh and zingy, this EDP is invigorating and lifts my spirits. Tantalisingly both sweet and sour, the crispness is really quite dazzling, and it's such a pretty colour. In a word, zesty! Just wish it lasted longer - absolute max is 2 hours on my skin, although that might improve on a hot day. Golly I hope it will be available in a large bottle soon - this 10ml spray will be gone WELL before Summer starts ♥
Strawberry & Violet
This was also a guaranteed winner, if for no other reason than it contains violet, one of my long time fragrance loves. On the other hand I was worried it would be too sweet - totally wasted concerns as it's just perfect, PERFECT! I'd call it an old fashioned perfume - I don't mean it's for old ladies, there's just something about it that conjures up a bygone era, when things were a whole lot less hectic, and a whole lot more personal. Shamelessly romantic and totally feminine, the emphasis is on the violet, but the strawberry content nudges it away from being pure floral. Similar staying power to the Pink Grapefruit, wearable all year round, and I would definitely buy it in a larger size. Absolutely love it ♥
I tell you what, if the other six are as good as these two, then I'll be floating on perfume Cloud 9 ♥ RRP is $25, and in case you're wondering, I'm sampling from top to bottom from the above list, so Tutti Frutti will be up next.
What's your favourite Chi Chi fragrance?
Take care of you,
