Regular readers of Splodz Blogz will know that I am a fan of Batiste, and I don’t mind telling you again. The (lovely) dry shampoo company has recently released two new scents, and I was very pleased to receive a tin of each in the post to try out when I got back from my recent holiday.
Batiste Paisley and Graffiti are available in competing shops – the former in Superdrug and the latter in Boots. They are rival scents if you like, and have kind of been designed for two different types of women.
The names and designs on the tins give it away really. The Paisley one is sweet and sugary (a bit like sherbet), whereas the graffiti one is fresher. Paisley has floral notes, whereas Graffiti is kind of more metallic.
Of course both have exactly the same effect on your hair. Dry shampoo is ideal for refreshing your hair between washes – whether it’s fixing your hair after work ready for an evening out, or when you’re out and about unable to find water warm enough to risk a shower. I always have some in my bathroom cupboard, in my work drawer, in my rucksack.
In the battle of the exclusive scents I have to say I prefer Paisley – it’s sweeter and more floral. Actually this goes against what I would choose if I hadn’t got both side by side to compare – I would have thought my style would be more Graffiti. I guess we’re always learning things about ourselves… even with tins of dry shampoo.
Which one do you like best? What do you think of “exclusive” scents?
