Religion: The Fragrance?

Edgy british fashion label Religion are the latest brand to branch out into fragrance. I was intrigued to see what direction the label would go in with their first scent and I have to say, I am pleasantly surprised!


The anaemic-looking, all white bottle and packaging looks somewhat clinical and the angular design and skull adornment is more than reminiscent of Alexander McQueen's signature designs. None the less it's a funky, edgy looking perfume that fits the brand's image perfectly.


As for the scent, I was surprised by how sweet this is. I would describe it as a sugary citrus scent, which has notes of zesty orange and turkish rose. If I had to compare it to anything already out there I would say it's a sharper alternative to fragrances like Juicy Couture Viva La Juicy and Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb... both of which are immensely popular fragrances so I have a feeling that this will be a hit!


To me, it seems like a universally 'likeable' fragrance, and at only £30 for 50ml Eau de Toilette it would make the ideal 'safe' fragrance gift.

Definitely worth a smell if you like sweet scents, it is available now from Boots.

  11. I adore the bottle so much - the design is edgy and definitely something I want sitting on my dresser table so people can admire it too!

    Not so keen on how you described it as smelling like Juicy Couture or Victor & Rolf though...I adored Flower Bomb initially but the sweetness got to me and gives me a headache now. Wish they came out with a stronger fragrance similar to Alien to match the bottle design.

    Still, won't say no to a sniff of this myself when I'm shopping!

  13. Absolutely love the packaging. I have a thing for skulls, haha. My headphones for my iPod are from Skullcandy & have the little skulls imprinted on the buds.. :-)

    Since I am Stateside and we don't have Boots the way you do, I would love to see if Sephora would pick up this fragrance so I could get a chance to smell it...

  16. It sounds like it smells nice, but then it doesn't really match the style of the bottle.
