Missguided Babe OUD Review*

Following on from yesterday's post where I shared a review of the Butter London nail polishes I was sent from Sparkle PR, today I have a review of the Missguided Babe Oud perfume that they also kindly sent last month. I'm a huge perfume fan, I have several bottles on my bedside table at the moment that I'm trying to get through, so this has been a welcome addition!

Missguided have launched several perfumes recently but it's taken me quite a while to get round to picking any up for myself. I just always thought of Missguided as a fashion brand so I didn't realise for a long time that they had actually ventured into the beauty world too but they are currently taking it by storm! They have 4 perfumes at the moment and all have been so popular - Babe Power, Boss Babe, Babe Oud and Babe Dreams. I've actually been using Babe Power for a while now and it's become a firm favourite so I was thrilled to receive Babe Oud to add to my perfume collection.

The first thing I wanted to mention is that I love how the Missguided perfumes capture the essence of what the brand is about - being fun, daring and bold. They each have a completely different scent so there really is something for everyone to use and enjoy. Out of all of the perfumes they've recently released, Babe Oud was the one I'd not heard much about but I've been pleasantly surprised!

As with any perfume, for me the bottle is extremely important. As much as the scent is the main priority, I also want the bottle to look pretty and be something I can be happy to have on my bedside table, is that a little over the top? I don't know, I've just always been like that when it comes to perfume but I just adore the bottles of these perfumes. Babe Oud like the other three is a can shape bottle which I think it makes it stand out from all of the other brands at the moment. I've never seen bottles like this before. It's simple but unique and the colours they go for are always stunning. I love that this is classic black with rose gold text and the box it comes in is sleek but again, stands out for all the right reasons.

Onto the scent which is always the most important part. Straight away I noticed how different this was to Babe Power which is very sweet. This is a much deeper fragrance that has a real middle eastern aroma. Top notes are baies rose, bergamot, lemon and orange with dashes of red fruit and neroli. The heart of the fragrance marries geranium with jasmian, oud, black pepper, roses and saffron with a leathery quality. Finally the base notes are amber, cedar, patchouli and cedar.

I love patchouli in a perfume or room fragrance so I was really happy to pick up on that in this but I love the fruity scents that hit you one at a time too. The citrus zing you get from the lemon and orange is lovely and it really does linger on your skin for hours which is so nice. Every single scent works together so well.

I just can't stop using this perfume. It really is a divine scent that lingers all day and I always feel so good when I'm wearing it. I've been struggling to choose between this and Babe Power when it comes to choosing a perfume for the day.

This would make the perfect gift this Christmas as would any of the Missguided perfumes. Babe Oud is currently £27.50 at The Fragrance Shop and there are also gift sets available too so it's well worth a look in the last few weeks before Christmas.

Have you tried any of the Missguided perfumes?
