Christina Aguilera Inspire Review

Fragrance Review: Christina Aguilera Inspire

This isn't Christina Aguilera's first venture into the fragrance world. It isn't even her second. Aside from dabbling in the European fragrance market for the past several years, her fruity, vanilla-esque perfume aptly named, Christina Aguilera made its stateside debut last fall.

Created to inspire you to take a stance and be self-confident, Christina's newest addition — Inspire — celebrates femininity and encourages you to release your sexy side from within. Never been one to shy away from bold, adventuresome looks herself, this new fragrance is surprisingly quite mellow.

Overall, Inspire is pleasant, pretty, and classic. A fairly standard floral blend of rose and freesia provides dainty characteristics, while notes of mango and citrus give just the slightest whisper of sweetness. Sandalwood and musky notes round it out for softened edge.

The bottle and packaging is rather cool, too — influenced by the classic and modern, just like Christina herself. If you like light floral scents without too much complexity, this one's for you. Inspire is definitely wearable — just not all that distinctive.

I just got it & i love it but I love perfume that smells like flowers... I love the way the bottle fits in your hand & the way it sprays out of the bottle , I don't like the way the top does not stay on the bottle .....

Hey there, I did like this perfume, but to get five stars it has to be a super distinctive, absolutely wonderful scent. Inspire is pleasant, but it doesn't have that special unique quality. And yes — those are her initials on the top of the bottle. They aren't bedazzled though. They're engraved. :-)

Eh...I have to smell it. But I do agree that most celeb perfumes smell the same. Question, though--are those her initials bedazzled on top?

Sounds like you liked it a lot, but why only 3 and a half stars?

I kind of agree with Bella sounds kind of yawn. I haven't smelled it yet, but lately, I feel like a lot of celebrity scents all smell the same.

Darn, another 'fume with rose AND freesia. Definitely doesn't seem to have been "inspired" of creativity.. like Christina's done to death modern-day-reinvented-Marilyn impersonation.. yawn..huh..sigh :(
