Haul // Fragrance Freebies from Superdrug

 While opening an order from Superdrug, I was pleasantly surprised with some fragrance samples - six to be exact. While it is common to receive a free gift with an order, I have never received so much, and felt like it was worthy of sharing with you, and giving a little on the spot review!

I was met with samples of Jean Paul Gaultier's Ma Dame, Britney Spears' Fantasy // The Nice Remix and The Naughty Remix, and three samples of David Beckham's Classic. Perhaps they were trying to get rid of them!

Ma Dame, "a twist of orange and fresh rose illuminated with a flash of grenadine", isn't the usual kind of scent that I'm drawn towards, but I think it is the hint of orange that draws me in. Not usually a fan of sweet florals, this is actually quite subtle and not too overpowering.

Fantasy // The Nice Remix, a "dreamy and uplifting [...] fruity scent highlights the flirty kiwi from Britney’s original fantasy fragrance, while keying into the uplifting, core notes of yummy cupcake and jasmine petals. The Nice Remix finishes with a serene creamy musk, creating a romantic soft blend that leaves behind a whimsical trail". I haven't tried Britney's original Fantasy fragrance, so I cannot comment on that. But, I really like this one. It's fruity but musky at the same time, and my favourite out of the samples I received.

Fantasy // The Naughty Remix, "daring and mysterious, The Naughty Remix emphasizes fantasy’s captivating core notes of jasmine petals, white chocolate orchid and delicious cupcake. The dry down continues with exotic orris root, sensual woods, and creamy musk, amplified from the original fantasy scent to evoke desire." This fragrance is similar to the Nice Remix, but it definitely has a more "naughty" twist. The scent is a lot sexier and is probably what I'd go for to accompany a night out!

Classic, a "woody citrus spicy scent" is really, really nice. A men's fragrance, yes, but it smells so good. I like citrus scents and woody scents, so it's the perfect combination for me. As it is for men, I gave two of the samples to my dad (who likes it a lot too) but I did keep one for myself. Just in case, you know?

Overall, I am pleasantly surprised with how much I liked each scent, as I am usually quite picky when it comes to fragrances. I think the one I would be most likely to purchase a full sized bottle of would be Fantasy // The Nice Remix, as it is just a really nice, warm scent. Every sample will probably be chucked in my handbag at some point though, thanks to the joys of teeny-tiny packaging. I also really love how every one is a spray - meaning no accidental spills. Perhaps an order from Superdrug is in order if you'd like to be as lucky as me!
