Nothing sparks memories of my youth more than Ghost perfume. It was the first perfume I was ever bought and I still remember unwrapping it on Christmas morning as I made that jump from body sprays to perfume. I felt so sophisticated and classy and since that day I’ve made sure that no matter what, I always have a spritz of perfume on before I go out. It’s one of my daily essentials and I genuinely feel a bit bare without perfume. But that’s what a good perfume does – it inspires you and it brings back memories from a time long since forgotten.
For me the Ghost perfume are my early teenage years. As I went through Secondary School I tried various fragrances from them, before trying more brands and becoming the perfume addict that I am today. Sadly Ghost got left behind and I forgot about it – and the memories of that time. So when I was given the opportunity to reacquaint with their fragrances, I jumped at the chance to revisit my teens! They still do the same fragrances from back then, but there are also some amazing new additions to their collection, and they’re all very affordable. Which is one of the things I rate about Ghost – their perfumes don’t break the bank, but they do make a statement. If you’ve ever worn a Ghost perfume, you’ll recognise it straight away.
Ghost Deep Night – The Original One
For me this is the original Ghost perfume, because it’s the first one I tried. Deep Night has got the trademark sultry musk that I find in all Ghost perfumes, and has base notes of vanilla, as well as peach and apricot notes within it. Best for the musk lovers, it sounds floral but it’s actually thick and sultry, so best if you prefer your perfume to be sensual and noticeable. If you distinguish a scent, you might call this an evening perfume, but as musky scents are my fragrance of choice, I’d wear this during the day too. It’s got such a recognisable trace that you can’t miss it or mistake it for anything else. If like me, you started using Ghost as a teen, then it’s likely this will strike up those memories as it’s the original Ghost scent for me!
Ghost Whisper – The Oriental One
For me the most oriental of the range is Whisper. If you like floral, light and summery fragrances then this is the Ghost perfume for you. It’s got notes of Mandarin, Honeysuckle and Orange Flower which instantly means you know it’s going to be oriental in scent. Combined with the trademark musk that’s found in the Jasmine and creamy wood musk, you get this blend of oriental flowers that remind you of a bouquet and spring time, along with a heaviness to the fragrance which means you know it won’t fade or budge. Again, such a noticeable scent, it’s completely unique and unlike others from Ghost. I find this very girlie and great for all ages if you like floral fragrances.
Ghost Sweetheart Forever – The New One
The latest addition to the range is Sweetheart Forever. A girlie and feminine perfume which is romantic and sensual all in one. Still with fruity tones throughout, it’s got notes of roses and white flowers along with lychee top notes to add a burst of fruit too. Again retaining the musk level that’s the trademark of Ghost fragrances, it’s less fruity but more suitable for those who like sweet and sexual perfumes. It’s lovely to wear if you’re a girlie-girl and the bottle is perfectly indicative of the fragrance within. Perfect for the next generation of Ghost perfume lovers, I think this one will be a big hit with those teens making their first move into perfume, and also for those who’ve rediscovered their enjoyment of Ghost perfumes – like me.
Did Ghost perfumes grace your dressing table too as a teenager? If so, which was your favourite?
