Superdrug Perfume Review + Giveaway

Finding perfume that is vegan and approved by Cruelty Free International can be tricky. Enter Superdrug's own range of perfumes, which tick both boxes yet also smell divine. The only downside is they are only available at Christmas time.
Superdrug have brought out their own range of perfumes every Christmas for the last few years. There are usually one or two fragrances that come out every year but normally the range changes each time. Last year I bought two different perfumes: Guilty Secret, which I had tried when it was available the year before, and Exquisite, which was a new fragrance. They also brought out a men's fragrance called Bullion Inc which I bought for my boyfriend. It smells incredible and seems much more expensive than it actually was. 
 
 
 Both the perfumes come in simple but elegant bottles. I love the little bow on the Exquisite bottle.
All the perfumes in Superdrug's own range are extremely affordable, around the £6-£8 mark. They usually do smaller travel-sized versions which I think are about £3, and gift sets containing shower gel, body lotion and a full-size perfume for about £10-£15. Just before Christmas, I looked online and the perfumes had been reduced to half price! I took advantage and stocked up seeing as they are only available to buy once a year. I have decided to give away one of the perfumes as I thought it would be nice for one of my followers to try the fragrance for themselves :)
Guilty Secret is described as 'The Guilty Secret of intoxicating fragrance is yours to explore with this vibrant and seductive scent. Sparkling top notes of citrus and pear veil a floral heart with opulent accents of orange blossom, musk and sweet vanilla'. I really like this perfume, it is fresh and fruity and perfect for everyday wear. The scent is quite long-lasting but as it is quite light it may need a top-up or two throughout the day.
Exquisite is my absolute favourite of the two, and the one I have decided to give away. It is described as 'An opulent and voluptuous fragrance to evoke the precious woman in you. Top notes of exotic fruits rest on a warm heart of delicate blossom, night jasmine and summer rose with soft accents of vanilla, musk and brown sugar. A classic fragrance with a chic floriental twist'. I love the fragrance, it is sweet and feminine and as it is slightly heavier than Guilty Secret it is perfect for evenings and special occasions, although it is nice for daytime as well. I feel that this scent is longer lasting than Guilty Secret.
I hope that Superdrug will consider bringing out their perfumes all year round; I think they would be really popular. If not, I'm hoping that my stash will last me until next Christmas! 
 
I have one bottle of Exquisite to give away. To enter simply complete the Rafflecopter below. This competition is open to UK residents only and will close on March 18th. Good luck!

  22. I am against animal cruelty and only ever buy products that are cruelty free and not tested on animals. I believe that as humans we should be the voice for the animals and fight for their rights. Buying only cruelty free products is a great step in the right direction. :)
