S By Shakira Holiday Fragrance Sets

We all know perfume sets make great Christmas gifts, so what better to cheer up that special someone then with a Shakira Perfume Gift Set? S by Shakira Eau Florale is the newest fragrance and sweeter, softer complement to Shakira’s original, sultry scent, S by Shakira…perfect for everyone on both your naughty or nice lists

S by Shakira Eau Florale 3 Piece Set, S by Shakira Eau Florale 1.7 oz. EDT, 3.4 oz Body Lotion, .34 oz Travel Spray,$29.99

I've tried out the Eau Florale Perfume in a past review, click here and I really like the young fresh scent. The actual perfume bottle is nothing special, but the scent is so soft and clean, I wear this perfume quite a bit and people ask me all the time what I'm wearing. When I say "Shakira" they are a bit surprised. Who knew Shakira could put out such great fragrances? I haven't smelled the lotion, but I'm sure it smells just as great at the perfume.

The original S by Shakira scent is a bit more sultry then the Eau Florale.  It opens with notes of light citrus followed by a rich jasmine heart and sandalwood and vanilla in the dry down. The sandalwood is a bit strong for me,and the perfume is a bit too musky for my taste. 

The bottle is similar to the Eau Florale, in fact it's the same exact bottle just gold in color. Although the perfume was a bit too intense for my taste, the matching lotion smells much better to me. It reminds me a bit of Marc Jacob's Daisy without the heavy pricetag. I'm not sure why I enjoyed the lotion more the actual fragrance,maybe it seemed a bit lighter and left my skin soft and moisturized.

So which set are you going to purchase? My personal opinion ? The Eau Florale, Shakira's second fragrance is much better then the original.  If you're thinking about purchasing a Shakira Gift Set,that one should be #1, but hey everyone has different tastes, you should smell both before making a for sure decision! Either way, both sets are available this October at specialty retailers and fine drugs stores. (Walmart, Walgreens, Kohls and Sears)  They both make a great gift this holiday season!!!
