Hello everybody, today I will be reviewing Taylor Swift’s “Taylor” perfume. A very creative and humble name, isn’t it? The box’s pattern makes it seem very elegant, and the font, and Taylor’s signature with the picture of the pretty little bottle. The first time I ever spray tested it at the drug store I thought it smelled kinda pretty, and it was also a strong scent. But then, I bought it. Oh, big mistake.
Her other perfumes such as “Wonderstruck” are absolutely gorgeous smelling. This one? Not so much. It isn’t overpowering like some scents or cheap smelling, it’s a very classy, soft smell, the scent of flowers is present. Typical perfumes consist of vanilla smells, candy smells, or flower smells, so right off the bat it’s your average perfume. Now, on to “Taylor” . . .
When I first opened up the box, I found the bottle to be quite cute. But as time went on, I noticed that my bottle was . . . rotting?! Literally, deteriorating. The top of the bottle where the gold colour is began to rust, where it should’ve been gold, it was completely black. It looked rusty and even the scent of the perfume began to smell expired at the top of it. (The fragrance in the actual bottle was still fine.) The top of my bottle began to pop off so easily, whereas it should have been glued on tightly, and unable to be pulled off like all other perfumes. But it was always teetering, and one day, just snapped off. Then you have that tacky pearl thingy around the top of the bottle. Why isn’t it glued on, and better quality?! Seriously, it looks like a five year old went to the dollar store, picked up some beads, grabbed some cheap string and put it all together. It falls off so easily, and to me, just wrecks the whole look of the bottle. So, yeah, the bottle is absolutely disgusting.
Now for the actual scent. Let’s just say that I am never buying this ever again. If you’re a hardcore Taylor Swift fan and like soft scents, then definitely buy this. But this is not the perfume for me. No matter how much I sprayed on, it wouldn’t last. Like five seconds, that’s it. Even Dollarama body mist I bought lasts hours. I’d go up to people saying, “Can you smell my perfume?” and they’d all say no. Then one day I switched to Chanel’s “Chance” and a bunch of people complimented me. So what? Is Taylor’s scent just so weak that it is unable to be smelled? Or did I just get a faulty bottle? Maybe the scent just doesn’t hold to me? I know every perfume is different due to the fact that it reacts differently on people’s skin, but come on. This is the first time this has ever happened with a perfume. There is NO scent to it. So weak, not noticeable at all. I watched a girl’s review on YouTube and she was booming about how long it lasted. Not for me it didn’t.
FINAL VERDICT: 6/10
I’ll give it a six out of ten just to be nice. Maybe other people will like it. I could’ve:
a) Got a faulty bottle.
b) Needed to put more on.
c) It’s just naturally a weak scent.
d) My skin doesn’t react to it.
I will never buy this again but I gave it a good rating because it’s a pretty bottle and box for the most part, and I am sure if it actually stuck to me I wouldn’t mind it. But the actual scent is just not for me. So if I was rating it solely on what I personally thought, we have a three out of ten.
ACTUAL FINAL VERDICT: 3/10
