Fragrance Friday: Soap & Glory Original Pink


I’ve been obsessing over Soap & Glory recently (incase you hadn’t noticed!) I think it’s fair to say they are my current favourite high street brand, every time I go into a Boots I find it hard to avoid perusing their collection!

One of the reasons why I love it so much is due to the way it smells (delicious!) If any of you have tried their iconic Hand Food hand cream you’ll know the scent I’m talking about.

Soap & Glory call it ‘Original Pink’ and I wasn’t aware they’d actually made their signature scent into a perfume until I clapped eyes on it last week. Of course, I snapped it up (the 3 for 2 offer didn’t help!)

It comes in a round chrome bottle with the signature Soap & Glory pink lettering and a ring pull with a brown ribbon attached instead of a lid.

It’s actually one of the only S&G products that doesn’t have fantastic packaging… it doesn’t feel great quality but for the pricetag of £15.83 for 50ml you can’t really complain!

The scent is divine (but I already knew that!) A citrus base with notes of bergamot, summer rose, peach, strawberry, jasmine, patchouli, amber and musk. I don’t normally fall for citrus scents but I absolutely love this one.

The staying power isn’t fantastic but I wasn’t expecting it to be for the price. This is a great all year round scent which I’m sure will fast become a staple of my perfume collection.

  36. I completely agree with your comment about the packaging, normally soap and glory do gorgeous retro, almost 1940/50 inspired packaging which is so fun, so I guess it would have been nice to have seen something similar on their perfume bottle!
    However, the scent is divine, and definatley has an expensive smell to it, but for that price tag, who can complain!? x

  37. Going to have to try this. Saw your you tube video on their new lip balms and you've made me want them to. Great review - thanks

  44. The notes sound pretty much exactly the same as 'Miss Dior Cherie' which is fantastic because I'll almost run out!

  45. I love everything by Soap & Glory! I hate the fact that we have to wait for ages for their products to be released in the Middle East :(

    ReplyDelete
  46. I wonder if I'll be able to find this in Canada....
    sounds delicious <3

  47. Is there something that smells more like their Catch a Wrinkle in Time Moisturizer? I like the Hand Food Creme, but find it to be a very strong scent. I prefer the moisturizer scent :)

    Love your YT videos. I am also amused at the % of comments with their blog URL shown XD Oye!

  48. I know what my some of my birthday money is going on then, you said it has patchouli...I'm sold.

  49. Oh, dear Fleur, while I agree that scent is heavenly and the best ever, I strongly have to disagree on packaging and how long perfume lasts. Packaging is absolutely awesome! Simple, clean, sophisticated, modern yet with vintage feel to it, perfectly color coordinated (pink and grey together is one iconic combo). I think this perfume has great staying power as it stays on all day long. I use one spritz behind each ear and one spritz on the front of my top as it stays on longer in fabric, especially cotton Ts. Otherwise, good job, like watching your vids on youtube. Cheers

  50. Great review! I was just wondering if to get this or not, and this review made me decide to. So thanks! Very helpful indeed :)
