A really nice fresh summer fragrance. Light and fruity but all trace of it has gone after about 3 hours. Packaging/bottle nice and solid.

Update: who would have thought but this has very quickly become my summer go-to,office scent. It's so fresh and uplifting :) Lasting power also improved in warmer weather - try it out! :)

Like all of the Ghost line, this is more of an EDC concentration and is very faint- so much so that I can't really get a handle on it. There is synthetic fruit and a vague acrid musky powder. The packaging is masculine and unattractive. Even for young girls in the summer there are better options in this price range, like the Lilly Pulitzer line.

This has really great staying power on clothes, lasts longer than a week. I like it because it reminds me of something from childhood (the 90's) that I can't quite put my finger on. What's good is that it doesn't have that modern vibe, it's classic but in a light way - not overpowering. Not sweet or sugary. Finding that my scarf smelled of it long after the day I'd worn it was a lovely surprise.

One thing I would say is don't be put off by the bottle which is a bit plain and masculine. That doesn't reflect what's inside at all.

So, as stated in my review for Luminous I bought this one by accident. At first I too wasn't sure - but the opening and scent really grew on me. It is so refreshing but the musk helps to keep it from bordering on body spray freshness. Love to spritz this one on throughout the day. The only downside is that lasting power indeed is poor. 1-2 hours and it alreday settled down under your skin ;)

Edit: Lasts a lot longer on clothing - so don't forget to place one spritz on your shirt :)

I only smelt it in the bottle, so I couldn't comment on how the fragrance develops. However, it had a peculiar fruity-powdery smell, and I didn't like it at all.

So, this is a great dupe for Puma Woman, which is something I'm very pleased with as I really like Puma Woman a lot and ran out of it. It's soft, musky, citrusy in the beginning, very pleasant and wearable.

very bright crystal with just a hint more wood. very soft and gentle. doesn't project well or last very long on me but very pleasant whilst it's there. don't get any fruit which is a shame as a bit of citrus could have transformed it. the sort of thing i like but couldn't fall in love with.

I've never tried the EDT of Ghost Captivating but I did receive a bottle of moisturizing lotion when I bought Ghost Deep Night. I detect Coconut in Ghost Captivating although Coconut is not listed as one of its ingredients.I reason why I feel this way is because I had Avon Tahitian Holiday (ATH) which has Coconut as one of its ingredients. Although Captivating is nothing like ATH, it does bring ATH to mind whenever I apply Captivating. My co-workers love the scent of Captivating and constantly ask me what perfume I'm using. The scent in the moisturising lotion is quite lasting, about 8 hours. The scent is strong when initially applied and rather overwhelming at first.

This is a nice summer/spring scent for every day. I use it for work. It has a creamy note and smells a bit fruity floral elegant. But after I finish the bottle, I would not repurchase it. I seldom repurchase anyway.

Slightly similar to Sweetheart but more fruity.
The staying power isn't that impressive, it is, however, a good day time fragrance, a mood uplifter when you go downstairs to put the kettle on and make some toasts on a gloomy Sunday morning.
It is a nice fesh, delicate floral, moderately sweet, great for a gift.
Inofensive but lacking the wow factor.
5/10

I tested this today, it is light, refreshing and sparkling.
It makes me think summer is on it's way.
A lovely perfume that isn't offensive, there's only one downside to this perfume and it's the staying power. 0%.
