Scent Swatch Eau de Parfum

I believe in the saying, “You’re never fully dressed without perfume.” Fragrance is an aura that draws the mood and completes your look as if it’s an invisible faux fur coat, a statement jewelry, or a sexy lingerie. It’s hypnotizing, refreshing, and adds confidence to your style personality. You can never feel like you’re a hippie without smelling like patchouli or sandalwood, you won’t feel like you’re on a romantic date without smelling like vanilla or lavender, and you won’t feel girly and sassy without a spritz of berry-scented fragrance. It’s an intense form of memory ’cause it also creates an impression that lasts. Be sure to put your faith in Scent Swatch with their long lasting designer perfume-inspired scents at very affordable prices.

So, to make this impression really last, you need to have a fragrance that would last for hours. I’m glad that I have collaborated with Scent Watch because they offer a wide array of exciting designer perfume-inspired scents. Note that there’s a difference between “inspired” and “duplicate/fake”. Scent Swatch’s designer-inspired fragrances have different formulation (list of ingredients with percentage) and only have similar essential oils  with designer perfumes. Also, if it’s an authentic perfume, you’ll notice that the scent changes over time. That’s because authentic perfumes usually have three layers of scents (base, heart, and top). A fake/duplicate perfume mostly has one layer of scent and gives off a stale smell.

Scent Swatch only offers Eau de Parfum which contains a higher percentage (12-15%) of fragrance oil than Eau de Toilette (8-10%) which fades quickly. Eau de Parfum has stronger and longer lasting scent that can last up to 4 hours on our skin and up to 8 hours on clothes. Their perfumes contain imported fragrance oils that are diluted in perfume grade alcohol.

I got the opportunity to choose from their roster of options and selected these:

I fell in love with their box and glass packaging. Very minimal and they’re like Pantone swatches!
60 ml bottles are priced at Php 390 each and 30ml bottles are priced at Php 220 each.
Expiration date is indicated at the bottom of the bottle (3 years).

1. Pink Sherbet – Smells like: Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Shine (Eau de Toilette)

A scent that’s a little fun, flirty and sweet.”

4. Nectarine – Smells like: Jo Malone Nectarine Blossom and Honey (Eau de Cologne)

“As the name suggests, this scent is inspired by the clean and crisp scent of fresh laundry. We consider this to be a “light” fragrance but with the same staying power. A unique scent that hints of citrusy top notes of bergamot, lemon and lime and white floral heart notes composed of lavender, white rose, jasmine,lily-of-the-valley and tuberose. Base notes are musk and neroli.”

Conclusion:

Since their scents are alcohol-based, which evaporates quickly, it won’t take as long as 24 hours for the fragrance to linger on your skin unlike oil-based perfumes. Scent Swatch’s perfumes are very affordable and made accessible because they’re available in over 15 stores and through their web store, Lazada, Zalora, and Beauty MNL. I reapply twice a day and the scent lasted for almost 2 days on my clothes and the base note on my skin lasted for 16 hours. You’ll definitely get your money’s worth.
