Anna Sui Rock Me Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Light and refreshing scent, floral notes really impressive, well designed bottle
Disadvantages: The fruity notes do not come through for me
I have always been a fan of the Anna Sui perfume range, it started when I was on holiday and tried a sample of the Sui Dreams, fell in love with that fragrance and then have looked out for the range ever since. I have tried the Dolly Girl and Secret Wish in the Anna Sui perfume range and the latest one that I have been using is the Anna Sui Rock Me Eau de toilette. I am a regular visitor to Debenhams and it was in the store that I found this latest offering, tried a sample and was hooked straight away! A couple of days later I was the proud owner of a bottle!
The perfume range by Anna Sui is normally quite reasonable and for the 30ml bottle that I have cost me about £18.00 which I believe is really reasonable. You can get the Rock Me perfume in Superdrug and Boots as well as finding it online but I have found that the price does not really vary that much.
The one thing that you will always remember a bottle of Anna Sui perfume is the design of the bottle. The Rock Me bottle is in the shape of a guitar. The bottle is made from glass and has the great effect of a multicoloured perfume through it. The perfume comes in a cardboard box with the Anna Sui name and perfume name on it in black writing, then on the reverse of the bright coloured box is a little bit of information on what the perfume is all about as well as a list of the ingredients that have been used. The bottle is a big plus with me; just how the design of the guitar turns into a butterfly is really clever!
The perfume is described as being a 'fruity and floral fragrance for contemporary women, it reflects liveliness, attraction, romance and warmth' I am a big fan of fruity and floral fragrances as opposed to the heavier musk based scents that are out there so this was always going to be a hit with me! The perfume is also recommended for daytime or casual use so again, this fits with me well as I do enjoy wearing a perfume to work and only have a couple of bottle of perfume I use for evening wear.
The perfume is dispensed by a gold looking dispenser at the top of the bottle, you need to hold about 20cm away from the skin and you will see that the perfume comes out as a fine mist. The first scent that you will notice is the floral mixture of the freesia and the geranium. As I mentioned I love floral fragrances, this is so soft and refreshing and I loved it straight away. The other floral notes in this perfume are the rose and lily and I like that even though the rose is a bottom note, it really begins to come through after you have had the perfume on for a little while, there is something really light and pretty about the fragrance. The perfume is not as sweet as I thought that it might have been but this is a plus point for me as I am not a fan of the really sickly sweet ones, for some reason the floral mixture is just right.
The other notes in this perfume are peach and sandalwood so it is certainly more of a floral fragrance than fruity and the peach is really not evident for me in this fragrance, I really cannot smell it which is a little disappointing, especially when this is described as a fruity and floral mixture.
The perfume has a good staying power and I can smell this for at least 7 to 8 hours so it is perfect for wearing to work and heading off out for the day without having to carry the bottle around.
In summary, I have no problem in recommending this fragrance, the soft floral notes are really good for a daytime perfume, I am a little disappointed with the lack of fruity notes but this does not stop me liking what I can smell.
4 out of 5 from me on this one
