Victoria Beckham - known for her successful chain of womens perfumes and body lotions along with David Beckham. I got this for Christmas 2010 and my box came with the body lotion as well (see the body lotion review). The box is a dark purple with golden writing and is small and compact, which means it does not use more packaging than it needs and is pocket sized for on the go. I have used it twice, once when I first go it and then again about 2 and a half months ago. The lid on it is a chunky square dark purple design and is great as a stopper because it stops it from leaking, the perfume container is a dark purple where you can see the level of perfume you have, most of the container is made up of layer after layer of glass, so even though it looks like a relatively acceptable container and looks as if you're getting that full amount of perfume - you're not. You may be able to see in the photo there is a dip in the perfume bottle and the edges around it are just layers of glass - well in that dip is all the perfume you get. Also, the glass design does make you very wary of how you put it on surfaces as it feels and sounds like you're going to smash it every time you put it down. For 24.99 you are getting 30ml of perfume that smells quite frankly like pepper. It has a very peppery smell and is quite dull. Sweet smells to me are over powering, but I have come across way to many that smell like pepper and it does my head in, especially from a designer brand! The Beckhams seem to me as if they have not put enough effort into this fragrance and have not even bothered to smell it - making me end up smelling like my Nan! And if Victoria B smells like this then some one better tell her vampires don't exist. This perfume currently sits in my make-up bag covered in make-up and only about 2ml down, while the design is unique and pocket sized, the smell is just cheap.
After the success of their first perfumes, it came as no surprise when the Beckham's released spin off perfumes. Intimately Beckham: Night became available in 2007 and much like its predacessor it came in both the female and male versions. I was quite pleased at the arrival of Intimately Beckham: Night as I always tend to like the spin off scents which aim to be a little darker and a little more sexy than the original. Intimately Beckham: Night for her doesn't seem to be as widely available now as it was when it was first released. I cannot recall having seen it in Boots or Superdrug lately so it is more of an eBay search perfume should you want ot try it though I have also seen it on Amazon for £12 something for 30ml. It is also available in 50ml. The box of the perfume does not differe much from the original apart from it being a deep and sexy purple to symbolise nighttime. It has the same gold embossed writing on the front with the DVB branding symbol at the top followed by a rectangular gold text box stating that it is "Intimately Beckham" and then underneath the word "Night" is printed boldly. It is a sophistcated box though it is all too familar and much too much like the original box. A little bit of variety would have been nice in my opinion. Inside the box is the perfume bottle and again it is identical to the original aside from its colour. Instead of it being clear glass, it is a deep purple and although you can still see the liquid of the perfume inside the bottle you cannot see the colour of the liquid. I actually prefer the purple bottle to the clear one of the original. On the front of the bottle the words "Intimately Beckham" are printed in gold and the gold lettering works well against the puruple colouring of the bottle though strangely it does not say that this is the "Night" perfume. I found it a little odd not to say that on the front of the bottle. Further up the bottle we are met by the same gold plated square at the neck and then a purple lid which is the same deep purple as the rest of the bottle. DVB is inscribed into the top of the lid and you can see the spray nozzle inside the lid which is also gold plated. This is definately a nighttime scent whereas the original "Intimately" was more of a daytime scent. Some of the scent notes are the same but there is the welcome addition of the more sexy and alluring scents. The scent notes are tangerine, cinnamon, bergamot, tuberose, orange blossom, patchouli and myrrh. Immediately on spraying the cinnamon and patchouli are evident. This is definately a nicer scent than the original. The scent is sexier and much more interesting. In comparison the original perfume is very plain next to this one. It is more of a winter scent though. It is warmer and gives you a very sensual and irrresistable feeling. It is an empowering scent. I cannot smell the tangerine in this perfume though and it is not floral like the original. It reminds me of a cheaper version of Pure Poison from Dior. You get about 5 hours wear out of this perfume which I think is really good. The let down is that I thought seeing as this was the "Night" scent it would be a little bit stronger but it is quite subtle, possibly even more subtle than the original. I do recommend this perfume as I do think it is better scent wise than the original. It is still sophisticated but it is sexy as well as mysterious which is a nice addition. What lets it down is how subtle it is but don't let this put you off. It is really worth a try.
I only smelt this on Saturday on a Perfume stall. I don't know what made me take a test of this, but i'm glad I did. I ended up buying a 30ml bottle of this for £10. I do normally buy a larger sized bottle as it always works out that bit cheaper, but I tend to go off Perfumes now and again, so thought I would give just give this a shot. The shape of the Bottle is alright. The glass seems really thick which is nice, but it is quite angular. It is in the shape of a square so the corners are quite prominent. The neck of the bottle has a nice shiny gold colour at it, and it looks quite posh and expensive. The lid is square as well, and sits on top alright. the Bottle is a deep Purple. The Box is square and alright. Now to the scent of this. The spray is quite a fine squirt that comes out and it seemed to cover quite a large area. I tended to spray quite a lot when I applied it, as I thought it would just give a light scent with the 1 squirt, but the smell was stronger than I thought with 2 squirts. This isn't the normal smell I would go for. I think it is more a night time scent, as it is a little heavy scent, but it can be worn through the day perhaps with only a few sprays of this. I find it hard to describe smells of perfume. I would say this is quite musky, and perhaps has some heavier floral scents to this. I felt I could smell Violets in this, and although there wasn't any fruity smelling scents in here, there was a sparkling scent to this as well. I preferred this scent when it had warmed to my skin after about 10 minutes as when it was first sprayed I thought it smelt quite alcohol-y. This lingered well and I did reapply through the day but that was just to freshed up. A really nice scent that should be suitable for most people.
*Introduction* I love my perfumes and I take any opportunity to get one free. I am a big fan of the Glamour magazine website and saw a competition that was going on for the month. I applied each and every day as all you had to do was enter your details. You didn't even have to answer a question. It didn't look as though I had won anything as a month had passed but one Saturday morning there was a parcel for me. I was quite puzzled as I was certain that I hadn't ordered anything so I unwrapped the package to find a bottle of Beckham Intimately Night for Her Eau de Toilette. *The Claim* Intimately Beckham Night for her is a daringly intense take on the original Beckham fragrance. Glamorous and stylish, Intimately Beckham Night captures David and Victoria Beckham is a powerful and intense moment. *About the Product* Intimately Beckham Night for her is an opulent, heady, captivating fragrance taking the hook of the original version and giving it a seductive, after dark twist. This new dimension of feminine sensuality opens with sparkling zesty tangerine and bergamot spiced with cinnamon. The white flower heart of intoxicating lily, tuberose and orange blossom is enhanced with a hint of clove. The bottom note adds the haunting depth of sandalwood and patchouli warmed with irresistible vanilla, Tonka bean and myrrh. *Price and Availability* Beckham Intimately Night for Her Eau de Toilette can be bought from a variety of different shops including Debenhams, Boots, The Perfume Shop and House of Fraser. It is also available to buy online from www.boots.com if you prefer to buy perfume online but my advice is to smell it first in a shop. I don't believe that it will be to everyone's taste. You can buy this perfume in 3 different size bottles. The prices for these average at around: - 30ml bottle: £20 - 50ml bottle: £26 - 75ml bottle: £35 I think that these are relatively good prices for the size of the bottle that you are getting. I would be happy to pay this price if I were to buy this perfume (instead of win it - still thrilled at that) as the smell is sophisticated and unique. It is a smell that I could actually imagine Victoria would wear herself. *My Opinion* The packaging: This perfume is a square, chunky deep purple glass bottle. The bottle is a very dark colour which gives the perfume a slight mysterious feel and the gold rim around the lid and writing at a touch of class. The lid of the perfume is also square and pulls on and off to show the dispenser. I like the lid as it is a snug fit and doesn't fall off. It isn't the most imaginative packaging in the world, but it is sophisticated and classy, quite like Victoria herself. And the deep purple colour of the bottle works well with the idea that it is a night fragrance as it reminds you of the evening. And although it is a dark glass, you can still see how much of it is left at any time. All in all, I think the packaging is simple yet stylish and encompasses Victoria Beckham's personality. The smell: I don't think I have ever smelt so many different scents in a single perfume than this. It starts off spicy, then gets a little floral and finishes quite musky. When you initially spray this perfume onto your skin you will notice instantly the aroma of cinnamon and tangerine. This smell is spicy and I can't say that I was too taken with it. But after about 5 minutes, this aroma settles and you are finally left with a muskier scent which I prefer. I find that it is the vanilla aroma that is most prominent and I like this as I am a fan of this scent in a perfume. This smell is a audacious, sexy scent which you will love if you are fond of feminine smells. It surpassed my expectations for this perfume and I was very pleased with the outcome. Is it glamorous and stylish like it claims? Yes it is indeed! Staying power: I think that Beckham Intimately Night for Her Eau de Toilette is a very nice fragrance that stays longer than most that I have used. It is also very strong which is probably the reason for its great staying power and long lasting scent. As I have only worn it during the evening, I cannot tell you whether it lasts all day but I can inform you that it will last a good 4-5 hours which is the duration of time that I have worn it. How many squirts of the perfume are required? I think that between 2 and 3 sprays of this perfume are sufficient to get the scent that you desire from this perfume that will last all night long. I think that Beckham Intimately Night For Her Eau de Toilette is one of the perfumes that you need to be careful that you do not over use as it has a slightly intense quality which those around you may find a little too overpowering. Longevity of the product: I have found that this perfume is lasting me a very long time for the reason that I only wear it when going out in the evening and this is something that I don't do on a regular basis therefore it doesn't get as much use as other of my perfumes. *Would I Recommend This Perfume?* I would recommend Beckham Intimately Night for Her Eau de Toilette for anyone that is looking for a perfume for the evening that will give you a sensual, seductive smell. I don't tend to wear this perfume as a day time scent but there is absolutely no reason why you couldn't if you desired to although it does lean towards being an evening scent in my opinion and as it does have 'night' in the product name. Would I recommend it as a perfume that would be a good gift? Only if you know that the person that you are buying it for likes it as it isn't a smell that all will like. I suggest you try asking their thoughts on it first. *Overall* On the whole, I really do like this perfume but I am not sure that I would choose it over some of the others that I have. It has a great smell for the evening, but it isn't really one that I would choose to wear during the day therefore although I find it to be superior on pretty much every level, I very much doubt that I will buy it again.
I bought this in a four some with the matching moisturiser, and imtimately day and again the matching moisturiser. I am huge victoria beckham fan, so purchased this without even smelling the bottle. I love the packaging and its high finish. The box it comes in is glossy purple with gold detailing. The bottle of course matches this. Its a very dark purple, and not tacky at all. It is the exact classy presented perfume that you would expect from the Beckham brand. I was not sure what to expect when I opened the bottle and took a sniff. There are lots of different hints of smell in this perfume. The top level smells (the most strong and easily noticeable) are bergamot, tangerine and cinnamon. The middle levels smells are then of tuberose, orange blossom and lilly. The very basic levels of smell are sandal wood, vanilla, myrrh, tonka bean and patchouli. These most basic smells are the ones that give the long lasting smell, on your wrist for hours afterwards. These smells have a lot of staying power and are designed to stay on your body for long after the levels of smell above them have disappeared. Due to these different levels of scent, the smell you very first smell is not the one that yo are left with for the time on your body. Luckily, both of them are very nice, but not amazing.
When it comes to celebrity fragrances I'm really not a fan of them at all. At 34 years old never do I get excited that someone from a reality show has produced a line of products or that a wag has got her self a job producing and selling us rubbish and rush out to be among the first to purchase it! It's just not my scene and when it comes to scents I like to go upmarket. Of course I know who the Beckhams are but I stick with the statement I just made. I don't like them enough to want to line their pockets further with my gold! I don't want any celebs clothes, or to smell like them or anything else and if I want to buy a nice perfume I'd rather opt for an established brand such as Chanel or Versace or something like that. However one day I was in Boots and my Mum was taking ages making her mind up about her purchases hithering and dithering about as usual. So I was just hanging around sniffing tester bottles not taking any notice of what brand they were or anything and stumbled across this and just really loved it. When I found out it was 'Intimately 'Beckham' I was somewhat disappointed to be totally honest with you but I have to be fair it doesn't look cheap and/or tacky or anything so I decided to buy it! The Packaging.... I purchased a 30ml bottle (which cost me £19.09 in Boots but also in the women's version of this it is available in 15ml, 50ml and 75ml sizes and it's also is available in the men's version of this (yes there is for him lol) in the same sizes too and of course it's also available in Intimately Beckham for the ladies and the men (not the night versions but a lighter one) and there are body lotions available in the ladies fragrances too! My perfume came in a purple box with all gold writing on the front of it and orange on the back. On the front I'm told it's Intimately Beckham 'Night' Woman. Eau De Toilette Natural Spray (Vaporisateur) and the size is stated on the bottom clearly. There is a clear plastic window so that you can see the bottle through the box. On the back of the box website details for the product range are given (www.Beckham.Fragrances.Com), ingredients are listed, I'm told the product is exclusive to Coty, on the bottom of the box contact details for Coty are given, the recycle symbol is displayed and finally there is a black bar-code on there. The Bottle is square and chunky purple glass with 'dvb' engraved into the top of the lid, a band of gold to the bottom of the lid matching the gold writing on the front telling us it is Intimately Beckham is displayed and then finally there is a clear sticky label on the bottom of the bottle with white writing on it telling me again it is Coty Paris, size is stated and I'm finally once again told it is Eau De Toilette. Really nice packaging I like the way that this isn't a tacky looking box or bottle or in you face or anything, it's all just really classy really. Sophisticated and clean cut and nice to display without screaming your a wannabe or owt, I like it! The Fragrance Itself.... Well this perfume is called 'Night' and that is because it is a very strong (when first sprayed) long-lasting fragrance. Very sexy, sassy and bold it's simply stunning in my opinion but you'll only agree with me if your into very feminine fragances! If your a light an airy perfume wearer, when you first spray it you probably won't be impressed but give it a chance for heavens sake! After a few minutes the strongness really does soften nicely but remains able to be smelt for hours. The fragrance itself is just a little heavier than the 'Intimately Beckham For Her' (original). It is a composition of Tangerine, Bergamot, Cinnamon, Lily Tuberose, Orange Blossom, Clove, Sandalwood, Patchouli, Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Myrrh. When first sprayed onto the skin the clear liquid really smells very strong of the sandalwood and an airiness of tangerine about it giving it lift but when it settles down onto the skin you really do get the full blend of ingredients wafting up your nostrils which are really incredibly blended and smooth smelling. I would describe it mainly as a floral scent but although strong and fragrant it remains light in many ways. It's a beautiful evening fragrance, smooth and velvety, totally sophisticated and has many dimensions to it. Sweet, delectable and a really gorgeous offering from Victoria Beckham I'm really, truly impressed! Not one bit tacky this oozes sex appeal and is a must own! I like the warmth given to this with the vanilla and cloves and love the flowers chosen in this giving it a beautiful sweetness and the fruits giving a great uplift, it's just so beautiful. Can be found in many discount stores online and known chemists and of course prices vary but expect to pay about.... 15ml £6.00 30ml £19.09 50ml £25.45 75ml £31.81 200ml Body Lotion £12.23 I purchased mine in Boots and am delighted I did!

Intimately Beckham Night Eau De Toilette is a fragrance which was launched by the Beckham's in 2007. As well as the perfume you can also purchase Intimately Beckham Night fragrance bath and body products such as body lotion and shower gel. The complimentary bath and body products help to layer the scent of the perfume upon your skin therefore increasing the longevity of the scent. People who have dry or oily skin and find that the scent of perfumes don't really last on their skin may benefit from using the complimentary bath and body products before applying the perfume; as this would give the scent a base to layer itself upon therefore increasing the longevity of the scent. Everyone's skin types are different and each individual may experience a different reaction in the staying power or the actual scent of the perfume on their skin because everyone's skin is different. As you can see from the picture at the top of this review the Intimately Beckham Night perfume is supplied in quite a small chunky square shaped glass bottle. The colour of the bottle is like a dark bluish almost purple shade; the colour of the bottle instantly reminds you of the night time because of the dark and mysterious colouring of the glass. The lid on top of the perfume bottle is a click on off lid which fits quite snugly on top of the bottle; and it doesn't easily fall off the bottle if you are keeping it in your handbag which makes this perfume a good one for carrying around with you mainly because of the actual size of the bottle and the tight fit of the lid. Even although the colouring of the perfume bottle is really dark, you can still see the amount of perfume remaining inside the bottle if you hold it up to the light. Overall I think that the perfume bottle and the packaging are very plainly designed, as it doesn't have much detailing or design on it. However the use of the gold metallic lettering and highlighting on the bottle and box adds a little sophistication to the overall design and appearance. ==Fragrance Notes== Intimately Beckham Night Eau De Toilette is described as having the following fragrance notes ~ Top Notes of Bergamot, Tangerine and Cinnamon The top notes are the first phase of the perfume; they are usually the most volatile and evaporate from the skin very quickly. The top notes are usually very light and refreshing and their scent usually lasts for anything between five seconds and ninety minutes. Middle Notes of Lilly, Tuberose and Orange Blossom The middle notes of a scent are therapeutic and balancing oils, sometimes the middle notes are often referred to as the heart notes of a scent. The middle notes are not always evident and can take between thirty and sixty minutes to develop on your skin, and they last for anything between two to four hours Base Notes of Sandal Wood, Patchouli, Vanilla, Tonka Bean and Myrrh The base notes are the longest lasting notes in a fragrance, most perfumes use the same base notes. This is because they give the perfume more staying power and stop the top and middle notes from evaporating from your skin as quickly. ==The Scent== As soon as Intimately Beckham Night is first sprayed onto your skin you will immediately detect a somewhat strong citrus aroma which has a spicy undertone accompanying it. After approximately two minutes or so the scent dies down quite a lot and changes into a more mellow citrus/spicy scent which isn't as strong smelling. I was really surprised by how quickly the scent of the perfume settled down considering it was as string smelling a first. However this scent is absolutely gorgeous and when it is completely settled it has a gorgeous light and airy composition which I'm sure most women would love the scent of. The strong citrus top notes which you can detect as soon as the perfume is sprayed onto your skin are that of Bergamot and Tangerine; they have quite a natural scent which isn't at all synthetic smelling. I think that the Bergamot and Tangerine complement each other nicely as they have very similar scents, the only difference between the scent of the Tangerine and Bergamot is the fact that the tangerine has a sweeter and more delicate aroma than that of the Bergamot. I would say that it is the Bergamot which has more of a sharper, zestier scent than the Tangerine does. The zesty citrus scent of the Bergamot and Tangerine is complimented nicely by the addition of a lovely warm spicy top note which adds a little hint of warmth and depth to the scent so as it isn't as zesty smelling. The lovely spicy note which is very identifiable is that of Cinnamon which has a really natural scent and just like the Tangerine and Bergamot the scent of the Cinnamon isn't at all synthetic smelling. The top notes of Intimately Beckham Night don't really linger for a long length of time; which is partly because the scent is an Eau De Toilette and Eau De Toilettes contain less oils in which Eau De Parfum's do therefore Eau De Toilettes don't have as good a staying power as Eau De Parfum's. On average I would say that the top notes of Intimately Beckham Night linger on my skin for approximately three to four minutes before they fade away and are no longer detectable. The top notes which Linger for the longest length of time are that of the Tangerine and Cinnamon. The middle notes of Intimately Beckham Night are completely different from the zesty citrus top notes of the fragrance; the middle notes are more of a sweet floral composition. Even although the middle notes of the fragrance are of a floral composition, the scent doesn't smell overly floral as it has a slight creamy/sweet scent which sort of detracts from the floral scent which gives the scent a lighter and airier composition. The middle note which adds the sweet creamy tone to the fragrance is that of Tuberose as it has a fragrance similar to that of Lillie's although the main difference is that Tuberose has a creamier and somewhat sweeter scent. The scent of the Tuberose is complimented nicely by the addition of Lillie's and Orange Blossom (Neroli) which again is quite sweet smelling florals although not as sweet as the scent of the tuberose is. The middle notes which are the most prominent are that of the Tuberose and Orange Blossom and the Lilly aroma is more of an undertone which is barely identifiable when wearing the fragrance. All of the middle notes of the perfume seem to blend in and complement each other very nicely to produce a nice floral composition which has a slightly sweet and creamy aroma. The floral middle notes of Intimately Beckham Night last for only a short length of time; I would say that on average the middle notes longer on my skin for approximately an hour or so before they gradually start to fade away and are no longer detectable. Again after the middle notes have worn off the fragrance seems to smell totally different again. The fragrance changes from being floral to more of a sweet almost powdery musky scent; which is good for those whom aren't particularly fond of floral aromas. The base notes of the fragrance are mainly musky/sweet slightly woody tones. The sweet musky fragrance note which is most prominent in this phase of the scent is that of Myrrh, as it has a warm and musky aroma. The Myrrh is complimented nicely by the addition of 2 similar smelling fragrance notes which are vanilla and Tonka beans which add a slight powdery sweet scent to the base notes of the fragrance. The addition of Patchouli and Sandal Wood add a slight rich element to the fragrance and somewhat detract from the sweet musky notes. I would say that it is the vanilla and the Myrrh which are the most prominent fragrance notes in this phase of the scent. The base notes of Intimately Beckham Night last for the longest length of time in comparison to the top and middle notes of the fragrance. I would say that the base notes linger on my skin for approximately 5 hours or so before they completely fade away and are no longer apparent. ==Perfume Information== All perfumes smell slightly different on different people, and this is due to us having different oils in our skin. The staying power of a scent also differs from person to person because we have different types of skin oils too. I said in the review that this perfume lasts for about three or four hours on me, but it could last a longer or shorter amount of time on you. People who have dry skin types will notice that perfumes don't last long on their skin. If you have dry skin and have this problem you should try layering the scent of a perfume by using the matching body lotion or shower gel before applying the perfume. By doing this you are layering the scent and applying a base for the perfume to layer itself upon, so you should notice that the fragrance will last a lot longer on your skin. If you like the sound of this perfume then I advise that you go into your local perfume store and test it before you buy it. When testing the scent spray it onto your wrist and wear it for a few hours before you decide whether you like it or not, because the scent changes the longer you wear it due to the different notes which make up the fragrance. When testing a perfume don't smell the scent on a perfume card because it might smell lovely on the card and when you buy it and wear it at home it might smell totally different and you might not like the scent you are wearing. I made this mistake a few times in the past and wasted £30 on a fragrance which I didn't wear again and put in the bin. ==Staying Power== Intimately Beckham Night has relatively good staying power considering it is an Eau De toilette fragrance. The scent of Intimately Beckham Night lingered on my skin for a good 8 hours or so before I could no longer detect the fragrance on my skin. I could apply this fragrance before I was due to go on a night out and still smell it hours later when I returned home. This is a good thing because you don't really need to carry it around in your handbag to reapply it often. When I am using the perfume I find that three or four sprays at any one given time is more than enough; as if you use too much of this fragrance it has a somewhat cloying almost powdery aroma which is quite intoxicating and overpowering. Less is definitely more with this perfume as it can also smell sort of cheap if you are wearing too much of it. ==Price and Availability== Intimately Beckham Night Eau De Toilette is available to purchase in larger department stores such as Boots and Debenhams; although you can also purchase it online from some perfume retailers and also EBay at a slightly cheaper price. The price you pay for the perfume will differ greatly depending on where you purchase it from; so I would advise having a look around and finding the cheapest deal possible. Most of the time I usually purchase my perfumes online as they are substantially cheaper compared to shopping in store. As well as the Intimately Beckham Night Eau De Toilette perfume you can also purchase the complimentary fragranced bath and body products which layer the scent of the perfume. People whom find that the perfume doesn't last long on their skin would benefit from using the body lotion and shower gel before applying the perfume as this acts as a base for the perfume to layer itself upon therefore increasing the longevity of the fragrance on your skin. As well as the female version of Intimately Beckham Night there is also a male version available as well which also smells really nice. The prices for Intimately Beckham Night Eau De Toilette and complimentary bath and body products are as follows. ~ Prices have been quoted from www.ukshopping.com 15ml EDT ~ £5.35 50ml EDT ~ £25 75ml EDT ~ £32.50 200ml Shower Gel ~ £14.50 200ml Body Lotion ~ £16 ==My Opinion== I think that Intimately Beckham Night is a relatively nice fragrance which has good staying power. As the name of the fragrance suggests this fragrance is best worn at night time because of its deep musky aroma; however you could also use it during the day as a casual day to day scent. Even although this scent has a slightly powdery scent it isn't too heavy or cheap smelling unless you spray far too much of it onto yourself. If you like fragrances such as Very Valentino or Soft Musk then I'm sure this is a fragrance which you would like as it is fairly similar when the base notes are more apparent. © Butterfly-Wings 2008 ~~Review written by me and also posted on ciao~~~#
I love my perfumes, I have loads! I was given this for valentines day in a set with the body lotion too. The packaging is great, I love this square royal purple bottle, very classy in my opinion and not one you would be ashamed to have on your dressing table. The scent is deep and intense without being too strong. The best way I can describe it is a slightly musky oriental with a slightly sweet smooth side to it. This is more of an evening perfume than a daytime one, hence it being a night version of the one they originally brought out. I love this perfume and will certainly be replacing this bottle when it is gone! 75ml is £32.50, 50ml is £26 and 30ml costs £19.50 not all that bad. These are EDT I haven't come across any pure perfume. If you want a party perfume this is certainly worth smelling as it really is intoxicatingly beautiful and would be ideal for going on a date! My other half loves this so much and thinks it is a very sexy smell. This smells better on the skin than on card, it needs the body's warmth to get the true scent.
