So...? Fragrance with Attitude...

So...? Fragrances really do take me back to my childhood - I used their perfumes and body sprays when I was growing up. I think they are perfectly suited to the younger generation as there are many soft, light fragrances in their range and they are quite inexpensive. I always remember asking my Mom to buy me So...? during my childhood and seem to remember this was a popular gift to receive from friends for Birthday Parties/Christmas. I think this was how I first discovered So...?, by receiving one of their perfumes as a gift.

Baring this in mind, I am now 25 and still love and use their fragrances :-). Their scents are suitable for all ages and there is bound to be a scent to suit you. I have acquired a more expensive taste in fragrances as I have grown up, but this brand has always remained a favourite of mine and even if I don't purchase their perfumes regularly, their body sprays are definitely a top choice to be dropped into my basket when I am out shopping.

I haven't tried all of their fragrances. However, they do have a wide range of scents each with their own notes of fragrance. A sure fire favourite of mine, even now, is So...? SuperStar, with it's Pomegranate, Fresh Orange and Passion Fruit scent, it is absolutely divine! If I need a body spray, I still can't resist popping this scent into my basket when I am out shopping.

The scent I most remember having when I was younger was So...? Kiss Me. This was lovely when I was younger, a really nice sweet scent that starts by teasing you with notes of Fresh Blackcurrants, Pineapple and Citron, before revealing layers of Sweet Vanilla (gorgeous) and Floral notes, rounded off by Musks and Woods. Not too overpowering for little me, back in the day! I do tend to go for more stronger, deeper scents now but this scent reminds me so much of my childhood! It's strange how scents can take you back...

I recently received a 50ml bottle of So...? Sinful perfume and a 75ml So...? Sinful body spray to try out and review. This is more of a mischievous, sensual scent rather than a youthful, innocent scent (which is how I would describe So...? Kiss Me-aside from the name). Even though there is that difference, both scents have Vanilla in them, so some notes of the fragrance are similar in that way. So...? Sinful combines a Fresh Strawberry scent with Juicy Pineapple (Mmm, Strawberries!) for a fruity scent, followed by Violet, Water-Lily and Jasmine before releasing notes of a Rich Creamy Vanilla and Dark Chocolate. I love floral scents and I love fruity scents and believe it or not they work really well together in this fragrance, even with a hint of Vanilla and Chocolate thrown in. I don't recall trying this scent when I was younger, but I can imagine I probably wouldn't have liked it as I do now, because to me it does smell like more of a 'grown up' smell.

Although So...? Fragrances aren't just aimed at the younger generation (from childhood to early teens). The main reason I feel they are more suited to that generation is because of the amount of time the fragrances last on your skin. They don't last for ages and ages and do eventually fade within a few hours, which I feel for younger girls is ideal, whereas when you get older you tend to look for scents which do last longer on the skin. One thing I did notice though, if you spray the fragrance on your clothes, it does last longer that way.

So...? Fragrances are available to buy from the So... Fragrance website, which you can see here. However, they do only deliver to the UK. I always remember seeing So...? in Boots when I was younger and it is still sold there today. I also have a Body Care in my town centre, where they also sell So...? products - I get my So...? body sprays from there. You can also purchase So...? products from Morrisons, Sainsbury's, Asda, Superdrug, Tesco, The Fragrance Shop and The Perfume Shop.

Different stores sell So...? products at different prices, according to what offers/deals they have on. However, all average prices are on the So...? website.
