Those of you who follow me on Twitter may know that my lovely Boyfriend bought me a charm for my Thomas Sabo bracelet on Friday. I was so excited as I had seen it, fell in love with it and for no reason on Friday morning he bought it for me from the Thomas Sabo website.
It arrived yesterday and I love it! It has a crown, a ring with a pink stone and a heart which has the word princess engraved with a heart dotting the I.

I frantically opened the box and found the usual booklet with all the lastest jewellery, the leaflet full of charms along with the usual gorgeous little pouch and the charm box. (I am trying to think of a use for the little boxes so if anyone has any ideas, please let me know in the comments.) Also with all of these I found this ...
It is a sample of the Thomas Sabo Chocolate Kiss perfume. I have been intrigued about this perfume ever since I saw it as it claims to be 'A luscious chocolate, champagne and strawberry kiss.' Now I love all of those three things, but to smell like them, this concept just seems a little odd to me.
The first thing that struck me was how well packaged the sample was, Thomas Sabo have gone to a great effort with making the packaging eye catching, even for a sample.
The inside is just as beautifully presented as the outside with all the images, I just love it.
Now on the the actual scent. I was so surprised when I first sprayed this onto my wrists as I did that thing where you put it on smell it then leave it for a while then smell it again,(please tell me you do this as well and it's not just me) and it actually smelt of chocolates and strawberries! I must admit I couldn't smell a hint of champagne but I am quite glad as the perfume doesn't have that really strong alcohol smell when you first apply it like most perfumes have.
Once the perfume had settled I smelt my wrist again and this time I could mainly smell the chocolate. I wouldn't say this is a bad thing but do I really want this from a perfume?! I usually go for fresh scented perfumes so this is a little out of my comfort zone. I wouldn't even say the Chocolate Kiss smells sweet, as the chocolate scent takes away from this a lot.
It is definitely a lovely smelling fragrance and something that I have not smelt before as a perfume. I would recommend buying something else in the Charm Kiss range first to test the scent out first as the perfume is £44.95 for 50ml and I think if you were disappointed it would be a lot of money wasted.
They do some great products for you to test out the scent such as the Charm Kiss lipgloss Balm for £10.45 (I think this would be lush) and the Shower Cream for £17.95. I think these would be a worthwhile investment before you went ahead and bought the perfume.
Overall a lovely fragrance but one that would not suit everybody. I personally am on the fence with this one, it is a great scent but I am still undecided as to whether it is for me. I do however love the packaging and being Thomas Sabo, they can do no wrong in my eyes and I know there will be people out there that will buy this and never look back!
Enjoy your day!
