Lovely Review: Shopping at & Giveaway, giveaway, review, creed virgin island water, blogger review, creed virgin island water, shopping in switzerland, shopping, beauty products, creed virgin island water, perfume

Everybody who lives in Switzerland knows: It's no shopping paradise for beauty products because they are far more expensive than in the neighbouring countries. Retailers put it mostly on the higher salaries and the exchange rate fluctuations. Ordering from abroad is no solution since you have to bear very high customs duties sometimes. 
More is More, unless when it comes to prices!

The founders of the online shop were convinced it must be possible to get beauty products for less in Switzerland. With their network of sellers and contacts, they found ways to make this vision come true. Nowadays they sell two-thirds of products cheaper than 140 other shops. They offer hair products, cosmetics, and perfume, all for women and men. Besides the well-known big brands every good department store has on their shelves, you will find a few rarer gems as well.

My order: 
A tropical dream in a bottle

My first order was a bottle of Creed Virgin Island Water. It's one of those perfumes you don't find in every department store, and even if it got recommended to me by a friend, I never had the chance to try it. The name of this unisex scent promises a scent like from a tropical paradise, and therefore I was curious.

Just to make it clear: If you don't like coconuts, better stop reading! If you are a coconut sucker like me, Virgin Island Water will be a revelation. It's THE ultimate coconut scent, it smells holiday in a bottle, distinctive and unique at the same time. My first spritz made me fall in love with the uplifting cocktail of coconut, lime, and ginger.

While the bottle looks rather masculine, I can imagine many men would not favour it, because of the many sweet notes like vanilla, hibiscus, white rum, sugar cane and jasmine, but my girly nose is enchanted.

I found my summer fragrance, and I might wear it the whole winter as well to keep dreaming of a beautiful coconut island!
