Christina Aguilera 50ml Eau de Parfum Spray

I was bought this perfume - Christina Aguilera as a Christmas present after I commented on an advertisement I saw on the television. The advertisement said that sometimes the perfume was the only thing that a girl had to wear, and I thought that I would like to try it and see if the statement was true.

My first thought, on opening the wrapping was that the bottle was nice and a pleasure to look at. It was a simple look, a curvaceous bottle with a lace design on it and a small bow at the top. The perfume itself is a peachy colour. I think that the packaging of a perfume is important. If the bottle is unattractive, I don't want to wear it, or even buy it for that matter. If the bottle is attractive, then I am more compelled to buy it. This bottle, I believe is simple, understated, yet classy.

Now, on to the fragrance itself. On first application, I thought the Christina Aguilera perfume was lovely. It has a definite sensual aroma and was almost musky, but with hints of fruitiness as well. If I had to describe this as an occasion, it would be everyday. It isn't strong enough to be an evening perfume, but it definitely works as a perfume to wear to work, or on an everyday occasion. It is a fresh perfume, one that could be worn in winter, but is more suited to spring or summer times. It has an almost "happy" smell to it, one that lightens your mood when you wear it.

I loved this perfume, and I think the only downside to it was that I had to reapply it a couple of times during the day. It doesn't have the staying power that other perfumes I own have. However, the price is really reasonable, and compensated for this matter. It's not a perfume that disappears instantly, but it does need a couple of extra squirts at lunch time if you were to apply it first thing in the morning.

All in all, I think this perfume was a great gift and something I would buy as a gift for others. I would also recommend this perfume to a friend. Christina Aguilera is such a role model, to girls both young and old, and I believe this perfume can be worn by all ages. The fragrance is a credit to her, and hopefully there may be a couple more of her own fragrances on the shelf very soon!
