Sephora & Disney Cinderella Collection: So This Is Love Perfume

One of the last reviews I have of the Disney Cinderella and Sephora collection is of an item you still actually get! Huzzah!




So when I was in the US, I took the opportunity to test out the "So this is Love" perfume. I always like to smell perfumes first before buying them, as I'm a funny one when it comes to scents. I myself like sweeter notes, vanilla, fruity, almost childish like scents. One of my all time favourite perfumes is Britney Spears "Fantasy" which is very candy-like and sweet. 

So This is Love is probably one of the more different perfumes I have in my collection, completely breaking the norm.






First of all, let me get to the packaging. I got the rollerball originally as it was a great deal cheaper than the actual bottle, so I thought it would be good to try and if I didn't like the scent, it wasn't money wasted. The box again, stunning. So fitting for the collection with silver accents and hidden pictures of pumpkins and Cinderella in her ballgown. The ends of the box are adorned with a C in the shape of her pumpkin coach, which I have found to be common throughout the collection, Jasmine has a J and I imagine Ariel with an A. Again I cannot fault the packaging on these collections. The barcode again, includes a little picture - this time of a pumpkin with a little pumpkin carriage going overhead. The side of the box includes the cutest quote "There is magic in this wand" - which immediately made me imagine the beautiful whimsical scent inside. 










Now onto the actual scent. Its different for me to like a scent like this as its quite fresh and musky. It is a very clean and inoffensive scent, light and airy. It reminds me of freshly washed clothing or a meadow of spring flowers. Again I really want to reiterate the lightness of this fragrance, its not overpowering and when you walk past someone its not going to be too obvious you are wearing perfume. Its delicate and gentle and I think Sephora did a great job at coming up with something representative of Cinderella. It smells like something Cinderella would wear, being very clean and lady like. Its not like those little girl Disney perfumes which are sweet and childish, instead being perfect for the older audience that wants something more subtle but still representative of their favourite princess. I love the fact that this perfume can indeed leave a lasting impression of elegance, beauty and charm. Also did I mention the rollerball is stunning? Adorned with beautiful vine leaves reminiscent of those in Cinderella's garden and including the same quote as the box.













This perfume is for you if you like clean and fresh floral scents. Its not overpowering in the slightest, won't give you a headache and I think would make a lovely everyday scent, perfect for Spring/Summer. The only thing in my collection like it is the Britney Spears "Curious" scent which has the same sort of musky, floral notes. You feel like a true princess wearing this perfume and I for one, am so very glad I took the plunge getting it. 

This perfume is still available in both the U.S and the UK! You can get it here from Sephora in both rollerball and bottle form from $19-$58 and here from Roses Beauty Store in the UK. 

What sort of scents do you like? Do you think you would "So this is Love?"

  1. After reading your review it makes me want to buy this! I'm not sure if Sephora is still selling this since they moved on to the little mermaid them makeup. I hope they do!

    1. Keep an eye on the site, I saw that after the initial buzz of Jasmine died down, they added some of their Cinderella stock back on the site so they may do it again this time :)

    1. The box definitely makes it stand out. The actual perfume bottle as opposed to the rollerball is stunning!
