Pacifica - Hawaiian Ruby Guava and Tuscan Blood Orange Perfume Review

Hii Lovelies!

Pacifica is a brand that's been on my radar now for quite some time. Fruity, sweet fragrances are my scent of choice and Tuscan Blood Orange is a scent that has popped up time and time again in many a popular Youtuber's videos. I'd lusted over their website for a good year or so but sadly, up until recently they did not ship to the UK. With another pang of lust over these scents a quick google search showed me that Feel Unique had started stocking a lot of the range, hurrah! So with a frantic search for coupon codes (FeelUnique almost always have a coupon or two running) i finally snagged these two babies!

Hawaiian Ruby Guava (RRP: £20) was a scent i hadn't heard too much about but from a quick look at the notes was something i almost certainly would adore. It reminds me lots of the Guava Rubicon drink with an added coconut kick... Now that would make a great beverage! Its a tropical, sweet and fruity scent that i just cant get enough of. I absolutely love it. I only have one gripe and sadly, its quite a big one. It just doesn't last on the skin. An hour or so after a good few sprays (i like to drown myself in it really...) theres little to no scent left behind, which is a real shame.

"Inspired by a surfing trip to Hawaii, this sexy and sultry tropical blend combines sweet, berry-like notes of Guava with a bright, citrusy top note of Pomelo and a warm and subtle Coconut base." (Source, FeelUnique)

Tuscan Blood Orange (RRP: £20) is probably Pacifica's most famous fragrance and with good reason. Its a gorgeous sweet orange scent that really, really reminds me of old school Sunny D, before they changed it for all those health reasons. Its not too tart or sharp for an orange scent and has a good amount of sweetness to balance it out. Its really one of those scents that makes me happy with a quick sniff. This is probably my favourite of the two but again the lasting power really really sucks. I'm so torn because i absolutely love the scents, but i can see myself running through these  really quickly. 

"In this delectable blend, juicy and spicy Blood Orange is offset with subtle Strawberry and Raspberry notes and grounded in fleshy Mandarin and Italian Sweet Orange. An orange connoisseur's dream."  (Source, FeelUnique)

Price wise for a perfume these are pretty good at £20 but for me they only have the lasting power (maybe a tad longer) of a body spray with is a big big let down. Although they do have solid perfumes within the range, so I'm a bit tempted to say the least to give those a bash.
Overall i think these are a fruity fragrance lovers dream, just a real shame about the lasting power. Would i repurchase? Probably. I really do adore the scents and their lower price points make up for their lack of staying power for me. These really are perfect for summer and a quick splash of tropical scent. If you're into more mature, sophisticated scents I'd probably give these a miss.

Available from Feel Unique here.
