benefit my place or yours gina perfume

Benefit My Place or Yours Gina Eau De Toilette 30ml review swatch photo
gina

I've never tried any of the Benefit perfumes but unlike the Benefit makeup packaging I do find their bottles very appealing. Now not to judge a book on it's cover Benefit's My Place or Yours Gina is a beautifully presented in old hollywood style packaging with gold, black and pink accents. I find it very woody and natural with notes of patchouli, pink pepper and bergamot. It's clean, floral and fruity (I get some raspberry or pineapple notes) and while also being a touch spicy which I quite like. It's not too soft but its also not too sour on the nostrils. I've not smelt anything like this perfume before and I actually quite like it. It's very wearable and could be potentially quite attention grabbing as it's fairly unique. While I would describe it as a sexy perfume it is suitable to be worn all the time. The longevity isn't the best, I've tried perfumes which last much longer on my skin. But I do like this one and have found myself reaching for it more and more.

  3. Haven't smelt this one yet, but I use their Laugh with me Lee Lee one. The bottles are really cute and like you say, their scents are not like any others out there. Don't know how to describe Lee Lee... it's kinda coconut like and musky... kinda smells like men's aftershave but is yet still feminine smelling! x x

  5. I've never tried Benefit perfumes before, and like you I've never really tried much of their makeup (although am do use their Beyond Mascara at the minute which is suprisingly good). But the way you've described this scent makes me reallyyyy want to try is, I'm not a fan of that many perfumes and it takes something quite unique for me to warm to something new - so I might have to give this a little sniff!
