Review: Playboy Women Deodorant Spray
Playboy always reminds me of my boyfriend, not that he have collection of Playboy magazine hidden under his bed, it is that he used to wear Playboy Deodorant Mens Spray Hollywood. I love its warm fresh smell. It smell very nice for a deodorant spray.
So when given a chance to review the latest Playboy deodorant spray for women, I jumped on board hoping it would be as good as the men version.
Play It Lovely
Perfect for daytime flirtation, Play It Lovely evokes a sweet and playful innocence that is guaranteed to enchant. This light, easy-to-wear fragrance opens with a mouth-watering blend of zesty citrus, ripe blackberry and juicy pear that uplifts and delights. The heart is built around an exquisite bouquet of cherry baby orchid, belle de nuit and tuberose, which exudes modern femininity. As the fragrance settles, the delicate floral notes give way to a warm and sensual base of amber, patchouli and tonka bean. Simply "lovely"?
Being Pepper, I'm a sucker for men fragrances. My all time favourite perfume is Paco Rabanne Ultraviolet for Men, and my current daily perfume is CK Euphoria Intense for Men. Well, I have a bottle of women perfume, but that easily pass as unisex perfume. So yeah, a full blown floral women fragrances is not my kind of stuff.
With all that being said, and with the description of Playboy Women Deodorant Spray Play It Lovely listed floral notes as it middle note, I would naturally avoid this fragrance. But boy, I'm glad to be given a chance to review this product
The spray starts of with typical scent of aerosol product that dissipates in an instants. The parfum spray kick of with fresh scents that distinctively citrus and fruity, just like the product description. This is followed by light floral notes. Tho the floral supposed to be the middle notes, it was pretty brief for middle note and overpowered by the sweet base note. I love sweet base note and base note in this deodorant spray last pretty long.
The sillage of this spray is moderate and the scent last for about 3 hours. That is not bad considering that it's only deodorant spray. Ah~ Talking about deodorant, I don't really think this would be enough for humid warm weather. So, I would use this mainly as perfume spray.
Considering it's overall scents, it easily falls to daily daytime fragrance category as it is light and fun.
Regarding packaging, I love the design! How the Playboy icon located tastefully on the can, the overall color scheme pretty much gives you a hint how the spray the smells like, and the cap actually cap on tight but easy enough to remove. The spray nozzle is typical nozzle that works just fine. I dunno about you guys, but at times, I found some spray nozzle is so hard to press, that when you finally managed to press it, you end up spraying too much.
Suggested retail price for this product is RM 16.90 for 150ml. I think that's a good value as this spray actually smells nice and last pretty long. There are two other variation for this deodorant spray, namely Play It Sexy and Play It Spicy. To read more reviews of this product, click here.
