Ted Baker‘s beauty range is one of the prettiest with their pastel hues, rose gold accents and floral prints, and I’ve featured their products here on my blog many times and for good reason. I find their products to be very giftable, in that everything looks so feminine and girly with gorgeous packaging which would appeal to many age groups. The Ted Baker Sweet Treats Fragrances originally launched in 2012 with Polly and Ella being two of the original scents and Mia the most recent, and are inspired by Ted Baker’s must-have fashion collections. They are described as “an uniquely delicious collection of fragrances that blend a classic, soft femininity with a modern sense of purpose”.
The Sweet Treats collection is showcased in Ted’s signature shades of nude, pink and black and complimented with their iconic rose gold finishing touches. The bottles have all had somewhat of a makeover, and are now packaged within super sleek, rectangular glass bottles with rose gold domed lids which are inspired by Ted’s beautiful bobble fastenings on the purses. Each of the three scents within the Ted Baker Sweet Treats Fragrances are available in a 30ml size for £18 and a 100ml size for £30.
Ted Baker Sweet Treats Fragrances – “Mia”
“Goodness gracious Mia. Sassy, stylish and sophisticated, Mia lights up the room effortlessly wherever she goes. Mia simply oozes ladylike glamour with her soft floral fragrance of rose blooms and freesias teamed with an irresistible blend of warmth, charm and allure. Top notes of lemon, raspberry and blackcurrant with a seductive base of patchouli and golden amber ensure Mia is not a scent you will easily forget.”
Ted Baker Sweet Treats Fragrances – “Ella”
“You Had Me at Ella. Strikingly confident and delightfully witty, Ella leaves a trail of sparkle wherever she goes. The definitive answer to the question, ‘Who’s that girl?’ Ella always leaves a lasting impression. Ella is laced with top notes of Bergamot and Cassis, with a heart of Orange Blossom, Jasmine and Rose and enticing base notes of Amber, Sandalwood and Vanilla.“
Seeing as the fragrances within the collection are eau de toilettes, I expected them to be quite light and fresh but Mia is the complete opposite, whereas Ella is a lighter and fresher scent. Mia is warm and woody whilst Ella is a sweet floral, and I think Ella would work for day whilst Mia would work well for night. If you like the scent of the Ted Baker body lotions and body mists, I really do think you’ll like both of these as they are very Ted Baker in that they’re not at all offensive, nor do they boast an overwhelming silage. I think they’d be a stellar choice as a ‘work scent’ if you work in a small office and worry about your fragrance bothering other people. I used to work in a call centre when I left 6th form and I was obsessed with Thierry Mugler Alien and it was way too strong a scent to wear in a confined area but both Mia and Ella are perfect, even with Mia being somewhat intense.
Due to them both being eau de toilette fragrances, they don’t last amazing well but that’s the norm for an eau de toilette. I get around three to four hours of Mia and around five to six of Ella. I do find it strange that Mia is the more intense fragrance from the two but doesn’t last as well on my skin as Ella does. I think £30 for 100ml, you can apply them liberally for greater longevity or carry the 30ml size in your handbag for fragrance touch-up’s and they look stunning on my dressing table.
