Katie Price Purple Heart Fragrance
Celebrity fragrances, for me personally, can be a bit hit or miss with some being incredibly tacky it almost hurts your eyes to look at or surprisingly pleasant and inexpensive. I used to love the Kylie Minogue fragrances and I've heard great things about the Katy Perry, Beyonce and Lady Gaga offerings, the latter I really like! The latest addition to the celebrity fragrance market is the beautifully photogenic *Purple Heart by Katie Price (£20, SALE, 100ml).

Katie Price, aka. Jordan, has released a limited edition fragrance with notes of raspberry, bitter orange, patchouli and honey, all of which sound gorgeous and perfect for the upcoming spring months. Ok, the packaging and bottle may be a little tacky especially compared to my other fragrances but it's very photogenic and a dream to photograph which may not be a consideration for most people but to bloggers, it really helps!

The fragrance is quite generic, it is a musky and fruity fragrance that isn't too strong or overly subtle but that does make it a great day to day casual fragrance for work or school. One point that I hate about some fragrances is that they have quite a heavy handed spray but the spray for this fragrance is a fine mist which I love!

Initially the fragrance is heavily musky with some lighter fruity notes but it's mainly a musky, creamy scent which becomes drier, slightly powdery, subtle and muskier (is that a word?) as the day progresses. To me, it smells so musky and creamy that I would have thought vanilla was one of the notes but it isn't. It doesn't have the best longevity but for an inexpensive celebrity fragrance it's not bad at between two - three hours with one spray.

Overall, for my first celebrity fragrance for a long time, I'm actually pleasantly surprised by how photogenic the packaging is, how creamy and musky it is and even though it's really quite generic, the fragrance would be great for everyday as it's not overly sweet as some cheaper fragrances can be, it isn't headache inducing strong and it won't completely dissipate within half an hour as most celebrity fragrances seem to. Yes, there are some negatives such as the generic, uninspiring notes, the plastic bottle lid and the fragrance doesn't have amazing lasting power but I think it's worth a sniff and checking out! It's only available online via Tam Beauty. Overall rating: ★★★☆☆, 3/5.

What do you think of celebrity fragrances? Will you be picking up or looking out for this fragrance?

  2. This doesn't sound too bad - I thin sometimes you want a slightly cheaper scent for everyday wear!xx

    1. Definitely - I don't want to use my expensive fragrances everyday as I'll just use them up so quickly xx

  3. The bottle is absolutely beautiful, but being that it is Katie Price alone, I wouldn't even touch the bottle. Ugh.
