The Perfumer Diaries: Guess Girl by Guess Review

 

 Welcome to the second edition of "The Perfumer Diaries"! This week I'm going to be reviewing Guess Girl by Guess. The first thing I can say that annoys me about this perfume, without even smelling it is that they used their own company name for the title! It's way too overused and doesn't make the perfume stand out which is a big no in my book. Couldn't they have come up with a creative, catchy title? 

At least they took the time to make a pretty perfume bottle for it which funny enough looks similar to the Dolce & Gabbana perfume I reviewed last month seen here. They both have a flower shaped top and a black ribbon tied around the handle. Of course I'm not complaining cause both bottles look great on a vanity but the Guess bottle looks cheaper compared to the Dolce & Gabbana one. Then again, Guess perfumes are cheaper than other luxury labels out there so keep that in mind. 



So what does this actual perfume smell like? Very sweet and girly! The top notes strawberries and melon. The middle notes I detected are orchid and the base note is vanilla and sandalwood. I would say this is defiantly a fragrance for someone younger despite Amber Heard (a 20 something) is on it's advertisements because of all the notes that were used to make it. 

Bottom line: I give this a 5/10

Why? I just wouldn't wear it myself because it's just so fruity and young! When I mean "young", I mean someone who still uses Victoria's Secret body sprays. Not a sophisticated, fashion-oriented, college girl. I guess the best way to describe it would be a more "flirty" fragrance for the girl who doesn't have sophisticated tastes in perfume and is quite new to it. For some reason it reminds me of Mean Girls! haha. 

Another problem I had with it was how overwhelming the smell of orchids was. I guess I'm just not a big fan of that smell but it lasted on my skin until the base notes appeared. I don't think the base notes were a good choice either cause let's admit it, sandalwood and vanilla? That's such an overused combination! Once again, the creativity lacks with this perfume and the sad part is you can't even smell much of the base notes because of the faint traces of orchid!

 Is it a horrible fragrance? No, not the worst. But I wouldn't recommend it to any of my close friends who are around my age. I would just give it as a gift to someone still in high school or to someone who's obsessed with labels and is a big fan of Guess. 


Until next time lovelies,
