On Tuesday I had the pleasure of being invited to the Thomas Sabo Autumn/Winter 15 collection in the Marker Hotel by the girls at Revolve Marketing and PR. It was my first time being in The Marker Hotel, so that was a big plus for me as I have heard so much about it and I have wanted to check it out for a long time. I was very impressed with what I saw of the hotel and I plan on going back in the near future. (more…)
As you know I recently attended and spoke as part of the Fashion and Beauty panel at the recent Irish Bloggers Conference in Dublin. Whenever I visit Dublin I always try to get some shopping done as I find the shops have a better selection available to everyone. This is my first haul post. Unfortunately there is no video as I am not confident enough to do a haul video just yet! I will also show you some stylish gifts I received for my birthday and one or two little things I bought for myself ;-). (more…)
During a recent shopping trip to Dublin, I made my usual stop to Penneys on Mary street. I consider it the Mecca of Penneys in Ireland. I always end up picking something up, but I don’t think you can go into Penneys without doing so!
One of the many items I picked up was the new mens fragrance No.1 for men. I had seen picture of the bottle on Instagram and on www.primark.ie so when I saw it for €9, I thought why not and said it was worth a try.
As you can see the tag line is confident, deep, bold. That is a great line to sell a product with! Very masculine and strongly worded. With the notes given off by this product as seen in the picture, it is a masculine scent but nice and light for the summer. Unfortunately it was too light for me. I felt that the scent didn’t last for as long as I would have liked. I felt that I could only smell it when I applied it. I was disappointed by this to say the least.
Overall I will give it a 6/10. While it didn’t work for me it may work well for someone else as the acidity of the fragrance my suit their skin type. The bottle had a nice shape to it and you are getting 100ml for €9 so it’s not going to hit your pocket hard! It’s available in Penneys/Primark stores worldwide.
There are more fragrances on offer from Penneys so look out for future reviews.
