Hold the press! Since when did Missguided create a perfume? I didn’t know about the Missguided Babe Power Eau de Parfum Perfume until I went into the Missguided store in Stratford . . . also has anyone noticed how I’ve managed to say the word ‘Missguided’ like 4 time in one sentence – #INSANE! Moving swiftly on, I’m not usually a fan of highstreet store fragrances as I’m a bit of a perfume snob BUT when I found out that The Fragrance Shop are giving away a gorgeous Rose Gold Choker as a gift with every purchase on the Babe Power EDP, I decided to put all my preconceived notions to the side and buckled down to do a quick review.
“ . . . I’m so weak . . .”
The Missguided Babe Power EDP – £25 via The Fragrance Shop – is an 80ml fragrance with Grapefruit Zest, Sour Cherry, Pineapple and Rhubarb working as top notes enriched with a Vanilla and Candy Floss base – and since when did Candy Floss count as a base note???! – This perfume is TOO SWEET even for me. At first this fragrance smells quite summery, and tropical but that smells then fades into the scent of pure, unfiltered sugar.
I normally smell like I have a part-time job in the Willy Wonka factory but I actually feel that this perfume has strayed too far to the dark side. I think the main selling point for this fragrance is its packaging rather than its scent as this has a very short wear time – in the sense that I was only aware of it for about 45 mins or so – so I imagine you will see this perfume all over your Instagram feeds VERY soon but if I’m going to be 100% honest with you, I would get this fragrance just for the free rose gold choker necklace.
The Missguided Babe Power Eau de Parfum Perfume costs £25 and is available to purchase from The Fragrance Shop
