Ghost Eclipse Perfume EDT Review

image from ASOS

Firstly lets take a moment to appreciate the beautiful bottle which is similar to previous ghost incarnation Deep Night. The warm colours of  Ghosts Eclipse bottle remind me of orange sunsets, exotic holidays to Morocco and desert countries such as Saudi Arabia and Jordan. 

With this months Marie Claire Magazine UK (September) comes a travel sized bottle (EDT 3ml) to pop in your bag. The bottle is a roller ball version which makes it super convenient to apply without showering anyone else nearby in perfume. However I do feel that a spray lasts longer than a swipe with a roller ball.

Ghost Eclipse smells like the original ghost fragrance with an orange fruity twist. Immediately after applying it smells very citrusy and then settles down into a more musk and freesia combination.
The top notes that create the first impression are very fruity, containing  bergamot, lemon, mandarin orange, blackcurrants, peach, apple and marigold. The middle notes or core scents are lotus, freesia and rose while the base notes that you can smell later on are amber and musk.  This is a fresh scent and because the perfume is light it doesn't set off my asthma which can be triggered by heavier scents. I am a fan of the original scent and also own Ghost's Deep Night, I think if you like fresh fruity fragrances you will like this.

This perfume would be appropriate to wear for any occasion especially for early summer evenings. For night outs though you may want to take it up a few notches and opt for a heavier sexier scent.
Unfortunately the perfume doesn't last a whole day more like 4 or 5 hours so will  require another spritz or two during the day and a EDP is not available as of yet.  A single application of the  roller ball lasts roughly two hours. A full sized 30ml is around £21 so compared to pricier perfumes this won't break the bank. This perfume is  similar to  Moschino's I Love Love and D&G's Light Blue so if you prefer a chicer bottle to Moschino's I Love Love or want to fork out less money than Dolce and Gabbana's Light Blue this is a good alternative.
