Polka by Primark


Hello beauties! 

I thought I would pop up a quick Sunday review of this lovely little perfume I picked up for £2 yesterday in primark. The first thing I liked about this perfume is the packaging I think it's so cute, something you could easily find in zara or somewhere like that, at the moment it comes in two different quantities this 10ml for £2 and a round bottled version for £6 both really great deals. 

I've read online and heard from other people that this is a perfect dupe for lady million, I adore a good smell-a-like although, I've never smelt lady million but I think this perfume is amazing! When you first smell this perfume wet on the skin or just in the bottle it's a strong floral scent that manages to rise to the top now don't get me wrong it is strong but it still has a feminine footing. I also get a hit of something sweet, almost like a maple syrup scent which cuts through the floral, I can also smell a fruity note but can't put my finger on whether its a berry scent or citrus as it's not a competitor with the two top notes.

Once dry this perfume mellows, the floral dies down and the 'maple' scent I mentioned rises to the top notes it becomes much more woody and earthy but you can still smell the floral so it remains girly. It also stays on the skin for a super super long time which for £2 is a massive bonus. 

Overall I really like this perfume, who knew primark would have such a good perfumes? There is a few others I've seen such a others called cest chic and midnight kiss which I am also excited to try! 

What's the most surprisingly good perfume you've ever come across?

  1. I would never think about Primark releasing their own perfume but I guess it makes sense after their makeup and eyelashes brand..their eyelashes are amazing!
    Perfume irritates my skin so I can only use a little on my clothes:( this sounds super cute for summer though!x

  3. I never thought to try this perfume as I thought it would just be like most of the budget perfumes that I have tried which tend to just be really sickly and strong but this one sounds great! Might have to give it a go! :)

  9. I think the packaging looks cute, I'm quite tempted by this but I hardly head into Primark as I don't like long queues haha. Maybe I'll head into Primark extra early one day.
