I’ve always associated the Ghost fragrances with my younger years, I used to be absolutely obsessed with Deep Night before abandoning Ghost altogether in favour of Marc Jacobs Daisy. So when I received Ghost Sweetheart Forever through the post I was intrigued to see if it would reignite my love for their perfumes.
The original Ghost Sweetheart first hit the shelves in 2008 and the new ‘Forever’ fragrance is an update on a much loved original.
What immediately struck me was its light, fresh, floral scent, which is something I personally always look for in a perfume. Although I do really love a deep intense scent, I find they can be way too heavy in the summer. The Ghost Sweetheart Forever is the perfect summer scent.
It packs a punch with floral undertones with top notes of citrus, a make-up which I personally love. Ok, so I know I’m sounding like I know what I’m talking about when I say things like undertones and top notes but at the beginning of 2017 I did a perfume making course which helped me define ‘my nose’ when sniffing out the scents I’m drawn to the most.
Sweetheart Forever is long wearing, I first spritzed it around 10am in the morning and it’s only starting to fade a little as I write this seven hours later.
The original Sweetheart perfume is still on the market but for me it’s a little too woody and I prefer the updated version.
I think this is going to see me through the long summer days (fingers and toes crossed) and take me through to autumn before I switch it up to something deeper like Jo Malone London’s Myrrh & Tonka.
