Impulse Body sprays are something that take me back to my teenage years but are still a product I stock up on now as its nice to have a cheap fragrance that you can just spray on if you're going to the gym or out going nowhere special but still want to smell nice without using up your expensive perfume. According to the makers of Impulse they say, "Impulse offers you the best in all-over freshness and fragrance, giving you the confidence to feel more naturally attractive. Impulse is available in a wide range of high quality, body spray fragrances to deliver an invigorating sensation of light, fresh fragrance and gentle deodorant. Spraying them all over your body leaves your skin feeling cool, fresh, revitalised and gently fragranced. All Impulse products are dermatologically tested"
Well, you can't argue with that philosophy and I do like them for their all over body spray abilities. One of the recent ones I have tried is the London fragrance. I have tried the New York one too so decided to stick with the city versions recently. Impulse say that London is, "It's the city that's too fast too sleep. Shop for cutting edge style, glimpse the lights on the Thames from a black cab at midnight. Go your own way with Impulse London Bodyspray." I'm not sure I would go that far with it and hey, it's not the height of sophistication but who cares, I like the fragrance and the wearability I get from it.
The can is purple with a picture of a girl on it who is looking cool in the city, London city so its definitely in keeping with the whole image of the body spray. The fragrance is described on the back of the can having notes of sandalwood, vanilla and grapefruit. To me its definitely a fruity fragrance and I can smell the grapefruit more than any of the other smells. I do like fragrances like this and it is sweet without being too overpowering. Perfect for daytime wear, if I spray it on in the morning I can smell it throughout the day and like all the other Impulse sprays you can tell that it has a bit of a aerosol smell but its nice for a basic fun fragrance.
A 75ml can in Boots will cost you £1.99, it will last about two weeks of daily use, especially if you use it all over your body but for that price I think it is quite a good deal.
