I was born in the 80s, and so Impulse Body Fragrances were very much a part of my childhood at school. There would always be a large cloud of fragrance in the PE changing rooms and girls bathrooms - does anyone remember the Spice Girls edition? As many beauty products come and go, it is amazing to see that Impulse is still around and with so many lovely scents to choose from too.
Impulse Body Fragrances are still priced at just £1.99, and I often see offers in stores making them just £1.00 or less, so they are a very affordable product to have. I often have one at work, one in my handbag and one on my beauty desk, as we all like a freshen up and they are much cheaper to continuously use compared to perfume.
I was very kindly sent four fragrances to try - Instant Crush, Into Glamour, Very Pink and Be Surprised. Instant Crush is a fun, girly fragrance with a delicate combination of green and lilac mixes with a fruity blend of violets and raspberry. The fragrance also contains blossoming flowers along with woods, musks and vanilla to give it a sheer creaminess.
Into Glamour has a bright and sparkling opening of tangerine and pink pepper, surrounded by the cool and crispy notes of the guavatini accord, and is full of floral reminiscences of violet, lily, magnolia and rose. It also contains sweet notes of vanilla and amber nuances combined with shades of sandalwood to give an indulgent oriental scent.
Very Pink opens with sparkling and fresh citrus notes of mandarin, bergamot, orange juice and pink grapefruit. This is then mixed with touches of pineapple and has a lively top that slowly transforms itself into a feminine floral heart of lily of the valley, pink orchid, rose and lotus blossom. Very Pink has a soft and romantic heart, an oriental sweet base of vanilla cream which then merges with woody and musky accords.
Be Surprised is a fragrance of femininity, sophistication and delight. It combines explosive delightful raspberry notes with an irresistible floral heart of refined Turkish rose and plainness peony together with the sensual vanilla and warm cedarwood. Be Surprised contains an exotic mix of violets and red fruits to make it an oriental inspired scent.
