Stacey Solomon 'Smile' Perfume ♥


I know they get a lot of criticism but i personally love celebrity perfumes...i am a huge perfume fan and most of the time celebrity perfumes are super cheap and smell amazing so you would be silly to pass them by really.

Stacey Solomon was a massive hit on the 2009 X Factor shows and she then went on to be crown Queen of the Jungle on I'm A Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here...she has now written her own book, busy doing lots of presenting jobs and has now released her own fragrance called 'Smile'

I spotted this on The Perfume Shop website a few weeks ago and added it to my never ending list of perfumes. Slightly confused as to why there hasn't been bigger hype around it as it smells pretty amazing!

Whilst shopping in Savers my beady eye saw this for only £14.99 when the RRP is £19.50..i instantly knew it had to be done and i did something i have never done before..i bought this without using a tester, i was completely in the dark of what it smelt like until i got home ripped open the box and took a good whiff lol.

Well what does it smell like??

Vanilla!!!

Who doesn't love Vanilla for the winter months?

In fact it smells pretty similar to THIS well actually no not pretty similar...identical!!
Don't ask me how i even know that haha!

Heart Notes
Vanilla Orchid, Rose, Jasmine, Plum

Top Notes
Mandarin, Black Pepper, Lemon

Base Notes
Sandalwood, Cedar, Vetivert, Patchouli, Amber, Musks

When your first spray the perfume it is quite a deep musky scent with an ever so slight hint of sweet floral but once settled on the skin it is a deep woody Vanilla scent that sticks around literally all day. For only £14.99 you would expect to have to spray this at every opportunity throughout the day however once sprayed in the morning it lasts all day with that gorgeous winter vanilla scent.
I haven't had this bottle long and i know its not going to last me long either it is a 100ml bottle but i see myself needing another bottle by Christmas.

I also absolutely love the bottle so girly and bright and something i would have totally expected from Stacey.
I love the white bottle as this is something i have never really seen from a perfume bottle before and the pink bow really does top it off.
The only thing i don't like is the picture of Stacey..i don't really think it looks like her and as its black and white it really does stand out but really to be honest i didn't buy it for the box although it is really cute the way it is a window box.

Like i said earlier there hasn't been much hype around this perfume and i really think there should be. If you get the chance definitely give it a try and see if you like it.

Its not going to be to every ones taste and i am normally a sweet perfume kind of girl but if you like Vanilla i am pretty sure you will love this...i certainly do and it will definitely be the scent of my winter!

Do you like celebrity perfumes?
Have you tried this yet?

  1. I do like the bottle, but I don't particularly like Stacey Solomon lol. I agree about the celebrity perfumes being super cheap. One of my favourites if J-Lo Live Luxe, it's gorgeous and a fraction of the price of posher ones!

  2. I love Stacey Soloman! Haha. She makes me smile when she talks. I really wanna try this perfume! I have loads of celeb perfumes and by the sounds of things, it will be a great replacement for when Diesel runs out! xx

  4. I agree, I don't think the photo of Stacey is the best! Especially because it's black and white and she isn't smiling... which is kind of opposite to what it should be! I love celebrity perfumes too, especially britney spears, kate moss and j-lo! xxx

  5. Celeb perfumes are great value, and I love stacey, but not a massive vanilla fan unlike most people, although it is said to attract men, (probly why I'm still single ;]) might give a wiff in the shops though, I can deal with slight vanilla.

  6. Im not a big fan of celeb perfumes, i dont like sweet scents, i find them abit sickly. Will always have a sniff before i rule anything out. Quite looking forward to smelling 'smile' it sounds nice.
    One thing though, it called smike so why isnt she smiling? The bottle and name suggest fun and we all know stacey is outgoing and bubbly, so why the black and white dreary photo of her? :-/

  8. From your description of the notes I know I'll LOVE this. Vetiver, amber, musk and vanilla are some of my very favourite things.

    I love the bottle, it's really novel and I love pink! x
