Perfume: Cheryl StormFlower

Cheryl StormFlower Perfume Review Giveaway

Now that the X Factor is back in full swing, I thought it was high time I gave the nation's golden girl a bit of love. Whilst the X Factor format has gotten a bit dry, I cannot help tuning in to check out Cheryl Tweedy Cole Fernandez-Versini's outfits and makeup looks. She is honestly the dreamiest, and who wouldn't want to be her? Smelling like her is as close as I'm gonna get...

Cheryl's first fragrance StormFlower, was released last summer as an eau de parfum. The name is said to reflect the scent of the air after the storm, and there is an emphasis on the fragrance being pure, fresh and floral. It has been designed with Cheryl's personality in mind; feminine, sophisticated and elegant. The packaging and bottle also reflect this. An ornate flower adorns the lid of the perfume, reminiscent of Marc Jacobs' efforts. The bottle sits proudly in the base of the box, like a piece of prized jewellery.

On to the elixir, and StormFlower opens with notes of mandarin and syrupy nectar, with a floral heart of freesia and peach blossom. The base goves the fragrance some warmth, with soft vanilla, white musk and sandalwood notes. Whilst it has been said that Cheryl wanted this to be a refreshing and light perfume, I find this more on the heavier, musky side of things. The peach is the dominant scent here, intertwined with the sandalwood, to create a sophisticated scent perfect for the cooler months. It lasts the entire day, which is very rare for a scent in this price bracket (priced from £23.95 for 30ml).

It is a pleasant change not to see Cheryl's face plastered all over the box, which gives a hint about the target audience for the fragrance. I feel like this is aimed at all the people who loved Girls Aloud in their peak years, and who have now grown up, rather than a younger teen audience.

Overall I think that Cheryl (or rather her perfumers) did a great job at creating a scent that isn't a carbon copy of every other sickly sweet candyfloss fragrance on the market. I particularly love the design of the bottle, and look forward to trying Cheryl's other scents; StormFlower Eau de Toilette and most recently, StormFlower Noir.

I also bought one of the 30ml bottles to gift to one of you lucky lot to say thank you for all your support. To enter, all you need to be doing is following me on Twitter and Bloglovin'.
