Review: MOR Lychee Flower Perfume Oil

MOR Lychee Flower Perfume Oil

The good:
THE SMELL! OH MY GOSH YOU GUYS THE SMELL!! I was at the MOR counter looking for a present for a friend, and I decided I’d sniff everything possible (I’m not the only one who does this, right?). We all know MOR have some amaaaazing scents – but one whiff of this and I was a goner. I pretty much rolled the sample all over my arms and neck in a fit of passion, while my poor boyfriend looked on completely helpless, just nodding each time I exclaimed “it’s SO delicious – smell it again!”

It’s ridiculously sweet – just imagine a lychee rolled in sugar and dunked in a bucket of berries. And the scent lingers for hours after you’ve applied it, which is a major plus.

It also contains some fabulous ingredients: grape seed, sunflower, almond, avocado & sesame seed oil for moisture, rose hip oil to rejuvenate the skin, and vitamin E to nourish & reinvigorate tired skin.

The bad:
If you don’t go for sweet scents, this will be way too overpowering for you! And of course there’s the tendency for roll-on perfumes to leak just a little; I’ve noticed just a slight ‘condensation’ on the side sometimes (but I keep it in the cardboard box, mostly for practicality but also because it’s pretty!).

And the packaging:
It’s an incredibly girlie pink, but the pattern keeps it sophisticated and chic. It fits in your handbag & in your hand, and the roller is perfect – not too loose, but not too hard that it pulls on your skin when you apply.

  • I have this and I absolutely love it! It’s so awesome for touching up throughout the day, but I find it lasts all day anyways!

  • This sounds like it smells amazing! I love sweet scents so maybe I’ll have to go and sniff everything too! Love that the scent actually lasts! I find sweet scents dont often last too long!

    • It is not for the faint hearted – you have to reeeally love sweet scents! But if you do – definitely go past the MOR counter and sniff it. And then, try to walk away without buying it. It’s not possible!

  • I am completely obsessed with lychees, so I think I will need to seek this one out for sure! I love a good musky scented perfume, but the girl in me just wants to smell like fruit and candy 😉

    • I’m not entirely sure my boyfriend loves it as much as I do, but I really don’t care! It’s sweet and girlie and makes me happy 🙂

      • I almost never consider my boyfriend when I wear a perfume – he should love me regardless 😛 . I get the most compliments from him when I wear muskier scents though.

    • IT SMELLS SO GOOD!! I am still in love with it, but I’m worried I’ll run out soon because I’m applying it 3 times a day!
