“ Brand: Arrogant Cat / Type: Fragrance / Concentration: Eau de Parfum „
I like perfume and have my favourites, but I also like to take a chance and buy something I have never tried before which is how I came by this perfume.
Arrogant Cat Dusk "I" - is the perfume that caught my eye on the website www.fragrancedirect.co.uk
There were a few reasons why it caught my attention first the name, it sounds edgy and different and so I thought maybe the scent would be too, second the shape and colour of the bottle and three price.
This perfume comes in a lovely sturdy black box with the picture of the bottle on top with the name on all sides along with little quotes which does make me think of a cat prowling around. I will quote part of one for you "By dusk...could it be her again?...Is she back?"
Inside this box your bottle sits on a silky cushion - oh how sophisticated! And again just like a posh cat.
When it comes to your bottle it is a strange shape - rounded one end and moulded to a point at the other but with a aversion to looking like a cats eye with it's black stripe down the middle of the deep red bottle. Just to note the picture in Dooyoo is of the other Arrogant Cat perfume Dawn but the bottle is the same just blue instead of red. Despite it being a red bottle you can still see clearly through to tell how much is left. The spray cap on top is secured by a tiny black cat like sitting lady clip, this can be replaced each time but I tend not to bother as I am yet to accidentally spray a perfume.
The Dusk perfume is supposed to be an evening perfume as opposed to the other Arrogant Cat perfume Dawn which is meant for the daytime.
The stated scents are Orange and macadamia notes with hints of milk, lily, plum, cedar wood and vanilla.
The things that hit me when I spray the perfume for the first time was it smelt kind of like the candle / pot porri departments. The cedar wood and vanilla I can defiantly smell and I can get the hint of orange and plum but the others I can't say I notice, but I am no expert. It would probably appeal more to people who like musky type scents that have a slight edge to them.
It is a deep intoxicating smell that is quite strong and is I agree suited for the evening rather than the day and it lasts a good few hours without the need for topping up.
***PRICE AND AVALIBILITY***
The RRP is a staggering £64!!! However, get off the floor this is for 100mls but you can by it on fragrance direct for £10 and Amazon for £15.
The cost is so high I assume because it is part of the Arrogant Cat fashion label but the RRP puts it in the realms of Prada and such like where I think many would rather high ranking scents such as those if they are going to splash the cash.
Would I buy it again? Yes at the £10 mark but I would personally not pay more than that for it.
