Claire's Fragrance Sticks


Claire's is a British accessories and cosmetics store that creates products for younger girls, focussing mainly on teens, tweens and kids. Every now and then I end up in that store (clearly I am not their target group anymore) to look at things for my kid sister or be surprised to find something that might actually appeal to me too. 

During the sale period I ended up buying quite some things, some are meant for my sister and some I bought for myself, like the fake bun for your hair! One of the items I picked was this little zip-locked bag with three fragrance sticks in it. Heck, the glittery pinkness and the fact that fragrances were in a stick appealed to me. So, I wanted to buy them to test them and then give them to my younger sister if they are to her liking. 

The see-through bag was filled with: a cherry, strawberry and raspberry fragrance stick. 







All fruity scents so I was very curious about what they would smell like on skin. Applying the fragrances was very easy. You simply take the cap off and rub the stick on your skin, preferably on your wrist or behind your ear. After applying you won't see any distinct colors on your body, but you will notice there is a bit of shine there. The fragrance stick feels like a nourishing body cream on your skin if you touch it after the application. 

The scents smell really strong and only have a hint of fruit and a dominant amount of something chemical to it. So, for me personally, it's just a bit too strong and not fruity enough. The scent dies down slowly but surely and after a couple of minutes it'll have a friendlier fragrance to my nose. The cherry fragrance stick has the strongest scent from the get-go and also has the most pleasant scent after a couple of minutes. Within half an hour the fragrance will die down completely and you'll barely notice it's there. 

Though these fragrance sticks by Claire's look very cute, they really don't do anything for me and reapplying it after every 30 minutes is a no-go on my end. This would have been more pleasing had I been 10 years younger. Still I am happy I sated my curiosity, hah. The regular price for a zip-locked bag is €9,95 including three fragrance sticks and more information on the sticks can be found here

  2. I love claire for hair accessories. I had no idea about it being british. I'd be curious about the rasberry smell.

  10. Ze zien er schattig uit, maar ik ben altijd een beetje op mijn hoede in die winkel. Het ziet er vaak zo cheap uit en dan ben ik bang dat ook de kwaliteit niet van de beste is. Wel leuk om eens te proberen uiteraard ;) Ik heb eigenlijk zelfs nog nooit fragrance sticks gehad...

    Liefs,

  19. I especially love the multi-colored one. Do they give any color pay off? But you're right that you can see it's more of a kids thing
