BEAUTY | Impulse Body Sprays

Monday, February 19, 2018

I haven’t had an impulse body spray for years, I might be lying there as I do feel like I had a small tin in a goodie bag but I have often been put off aerosol body sprays as they remind me of my teenage years when were you even a real teenager if you didn’t have at least 2 cans of impulse plus a bottle of So and or Exclamation! In your arsenal of personal grooming.

Walking through boots and I noticed a stand full of these impulse bottles, the first thing that drew me closer was the fact that they’re not in aerosol cans, the second was the bright labels and then I noticed the names.

  • ·         Burnt Marshmallow & Leather Jacket
  • ·         Purple Petals & Smokey Sky
  • ·         Whipped Cream & Microchip
  • ·         Tropical Beach & Espresso
  • ·         White Lace & Muddy Grass
I had a quick smell of a couple of them and was in love. They are currently priced at £3.50 but that is half price. I picked up two initially, Burnt Marshmallow & Leather Jacket and White Lace & Muddy Grass. I couldn’t decide between them and they are both fresh smelling with the marshmallow one being on the sweet side.

One of the days I’d used them. I like them both together so have a quick spritz of both. I tweeted about a really nice scent that I couldn’t put my finger on. It was me, or rather the Impulse sprays!

When I went in to Superdrug a couple of weekends ago, they were still on offer, so I decided to pick up the other three, plus I had a £1 on my Superdrug card which was due to expire (I didn’t realise they expired either!)

I’m terrible at describing scents so please excuse my attempts below but I know when I read blog post I appreciate it when people do try.

Burnt Marshmallow & Leather Jacket

This one is really sweet smelling but I adore marshmallow scented products this might be my favourite one of the five. I do also get a feint background smell of well worn expensive leather. I do like this but it might not be for everyone. 

Purple Petals & Smokey Sky

A strong floral scent with a smoky background scent. I do like this one but I haven't used it all over as yet. On the couple of sprays I've tried I think this will be used a lot in spring.

Whipped Cream & Microchip

When I smelt all the body sprays this morning, I tried to do it at random without looking at the lables and with this one I couldn't put my finger on what it smelt like. It smells good, I would say it smells like cream and what do microchips smell like? Metal? frozen chips (Micro-Chips) I don't know. It is a pleasant smell.

Tropical Beach & Espresso

A perfect summer scent, this smells like tropical fruit and I feel like I detected a slight coconut scent. I'm not sure I detected any coffee scent but I haven't worn this one I've onky spritzed it in the air.

White Lace & Muddy Grass

This was my first choice in the store and it smells fresh and clean. I like to use a spritz of this and the marshmallow one together. This one and the Marshmallow ones are the only ones I've properly used and they are favourites.

I can't wait to use all of them and while it does seem a bit excessive to buy all 5, especially when I have so many other scents but with the half price offer I couldn't resist.
