Something About Sofia - Benefit Perfume

Hello my lovelies,

So we're day 4 into my daily August posts and i thought i'd do a kind of review post on Benefits 'Something About Sofia' perfume :) My mum purchased this perfume for me with an array of other Benefit products when i passed my Driving Theory test all the way back in 2010. I've had this perfume quite a while but it's been a little neglected, so i thought i'd whip it out and show you all :D

I'd have to say the main reason we purchased this perfume was because of it's name 'Something About Sofia' thats my name :D well, kind of, except i spell mine 'Sophia'. We instantly saw the name and we were sold, however, we then smelt it just to be on the safe side because sometimes you can't be too sure if it's the type of scent you like. It has a lovely unique oriental scent which fades into your own aromas for a unique scent. 

Top Notes: Mango & Freesia
Middle Notes: Sheer Lily, Jasmine Sambac & Peony Petal
Bottom Notes: Musk, White Caramel & Vanilla Bean

'Something About Sofia'

How adorable is this packaging?! :D The perfume has it's own little house and storage box which is unbelievably beautiful and incredibly detailed. It'll look lovely on any dressing table :)

Their is a poem that goes along with this perfume-

A Poem to describe Sofia...

She lives in a dream
more dazzling than fiction

Imaginery yet real
She defies all prediction

An incredible girl
Sofia draws you right in

To Where the everyday ends
And the magic begins...

What we also though was pretty spectacular was that they also had a perfume named after my cousin Carmela and when we saw that we had to purchase that for her as well because its not a name you see everyday, like with my perfume this one is spelt a little differently also. 

'So Hooked On Carmella' 

I love how most of the items i have purchased have a meaning behind them or some kind of story, i think this makes them more memorable and personal which i love :)

Hope you enjoyed this post :) if you have any questions or any requests please do not hesitate to contact me or leave a comment below :D

Lots Of Love
