Have you tried So ... ? Fragrances? I feel like I'm the only person who hasn't! When I posted about these perfumed sprays on my social media, people commented that they had grown up using So ... ? and it was a hit of nostalgia for them! My ancient arse grew up with Impulse as my affordable aroma of choice and I have a faded memory of the hilarious TV ads for Impulse. So I was thrilled to be given the chance to try a couple of So ... ? scents recently, and here are my thoughts on them!
SO ... ? Body Fragrance*
This one comes in a red can and doesn't have a themed word after the So... ?, SO I'm guessing it's the original... ? (Tell me if the ... ? gets old and I'll knock it off immediately). We are told that SO ... ? is fragrance with attitude and to "spray all over the body and experience the unique scent of So ... ?".
I found this scent to be light, pleasant, and floral, although I'm not the best at describing scents, so hopefully I'm not totally off the mark. I've been spritzing this during the day as it's a perfect subtle aroma that won't be overpowering in the classroom at the ungodly hour of 8:43am (yes we get there two minutes before the bell, what of it? lol). I'm one of those people that gets headaches from strong scents, but I'm pleased to say this did no such thing. This would be great for a teenager as a first scent (please don't tell me they start wearing perfume before the age of thirteen - although I have just started insisting my nine year old wears deodorant, but that's because he's a smelly boy, lol).
On further investigation, the original So ... ? contains notes of tangerine, orange blossom and vanilla.
So ... ? Sinful*
Hold on to your pantaloons ladies and gentleman, because here's where things get sexy! This Sinful fragrance is housed in a purple can with what I think is a picture of a cocktail, two people kissing and either the Sydney Opera House or a shark as a backdrop. Given the fact that So ... ? is made in the UK, the Opera House makes no sense whatsoever, so it's most definitely a shark, you guys.
Now this is a stronger, sultry scent more suited to evening spritzing, but who am I to tell you when to spray it? Maybe you want to seduce the Accountant in your office, in which case you should throw it in your handbag and spray yourself liberally at every given opportunity throughout the day until he notices you, Goddammit.
And because I couldn't say it any better, here's an impressively descriptive quote from Beauty HQ:
"So...? Sinful hosts a hypnotic aroma with top notes of mint and pineapple followed by heart notes of violet and strawberry. A creamy and tempting base note of vanilla, praline and musk completes this spellbinding scent."
So..? Fragrances are available in 30ml eau de toilette, 50ml eau de toilette, and 100ml eau de toilette and 150ml body fragrance.
