I always love wearing perfume as it makes me feel fresh and feminine, but I rarely actually buy it for myself, always hoping that one of my family will treat me to a new fragrance. So I was very happy to receive a bottle of Ted Baker Esmila Est ’88 to review. This lovely eau de toilette would make a beautiful, thoughtful gift for mums, aunties, grandmas or practically anyone on Mother’s Day.
Ted Baker is renowned for beautiful fashion designs and I have previously bought several items for my family, secure in the knowledge that I was purchasing high quality, so I was intrigued to discover their range of lovely fragrances.
On opening the parcel, I discovered a beautiful pink and gold gift box, containing a baby pink atomiser spray bottle in a soft matte finish, with the trademark Ted Baker rose gold bow on top. The perfume bottle looks very luxurious and sophisticated and much more expensive than it actually is. I sprayed the eau de toilette onto my neck and wrists, absolutely loving the amazing scent of citrus and flowers. This is a very girly, feminine perfume which I would be happy to wear both for everyday use and also for special occasions. The scent lingered all day, which I was very pleasantly surprised about as with some perfumes the fragrance seems to diminish throughout the day. Not so with this lovely fragrance, as I could still smell the scent on my wrists in the evening. My husband commented that I smelled delightful, which really boosted my self-confidence. I always feel fantastic when my hair, nails and make-up are perfect and wearing a lovely perfume just adds to the amazing feeling. I have received so many compliments when wearing this fragrance that I will definitely continue to wear it every day.
Ted Baker Esmila Est ’88 Eau de Toilette is created for the independent woman of today, who delights in being original. The scent of citrus combined with lily, neroli and rose makes a truly unique and delightful fragrance, guaranteed to make any woman feel extra special.
With Mother’s Day swiftly approaching, it can be quite difficult to find an original gift for that important person in your life. Flowers and chocolates can be the easy option, and as lovely as it can be receive them, sometimes it is so much nicer to receive something that is that little bit more luxurious and original, in fact something you would regard as a real treat.
