I'm a big fan of the Original Noa Perfume. I first got it as a present about 4 years ago. It was only this year that I tried this one. The bottle looks the same as the Original but just a little different in the colouring of the bottle.
I can't comment on the box of this as I bought a tester bottle of this online. I've bought a few tester ones and the only difference seems to be that some of them don't come in boxes and the word Tester is over the bottle and stating that the bottle is not for resale. The good thing about buying these bottles is that they are cheaper than the normal bottles and if it is just for yourself that you are buying it then who cares what it looks like.
I got this in a 100ml bottle and think it only cost me £20, which was a bargain. I would say the non tester bottle would probably be about double the amount. I think this is available in 30ml and 50ml bottles as well.
I can't comment what the box looks like as I didn't get it, but the bottle looks like the Dooyoo picture. It is a nice thick glass bottle. I like the colour of this which is kind of a pearl green and blue colour. Quite an unusual colour and very different than other colours out there. On the top there is a plastic disc which looks alright, but I don't know the purpose of it. The unusual thing in here is that there is a little Pearl ball floating around in the Perfume. This reminds me of a bath Pearl and is nice.
So how does this smell? It is really nice. Perhaps not as floral as the original one, but you still get a dash of the original scent mixed with a nice fruity scent. After looking online for the notes in this I see this has Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Hazelnut Blossom, Kumquat, Freesia and Orange Blossom. You can definitely smell the Freesia and I would say the Kumquat and Pink Pepper are the other main scents in here.
After this warms to your skin it does appear not so heavy and strong, but I like the lingering scent from this. This lasts for a good while as well and I could still smell it faintly after about 8 hours.
A really nice scent and a new version of an old favourite of mine.
When my friend filled the room with a wonderful sensual, feminine fragrance I knew I just had to find out what it was!! "Noa Perle" was the answer, this one I just had to have!
==A Bit About The Scent==
Cacharel first created Noa Perle, the third fragrance in the Noa range, in 2006. The bottle is a round glass bottle with a slight blue tinge to it topped off with a little luminous cover over the top of the bottle giving pearlescent shades of pinks and blues depending on the way you hold the bottle. The perfume has a small luminous pearl floating delicately inside again twinkling prettily with shades of pinks and blues. This eau de toilette is available in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles. This sensual, very feminine fragrance offers top notes of pink pepper bergamot and kumquat, middle notes of white peony, freesia and orange blossom and base notes of hazelnut blossom giving a very crisp, fresh and spicy fragrance.
On first applying this scent to my wrist I was aware of the very fresh, quite spicy, yet still very feminine, fragrance which was immediately apparent. This spicy, feminine fragrance had an oriental air about it while lingering for approximately 2-3 hours and gently fading to a milder scent with the more floral notes becoming more apparent. I did find this fragrance faded fairly quickly having to reapply again at lunch time, although when my friend wore this perfume I found the strong scent seemed to linger for a longer period of time, so perhaps when I am wearing the perfume others are more aware of it than I am, which is often the case.
I also loved this bottle, very delicate and feminine, with each bottle having a pearl personally handpicked by a mermaid floating inside! (Well it's nice to have dreams, isn't it?!)
I personally prefer to keep this perfume for evening and weekend use as I was only able to get the 30ml bottle and with it being my very favourite I want to try and keep it for as longer as I can!! It would, however, be suitable for everyday use as well.
Noa Perle can be bought in 30ml, 50ml and 100ml bottles and is also available in a 200ml bottle of body lotion. I have never actually seen this fragrance available in the shops here although it is widely available on the internet in a huge variety of prices.
Thanks for reading.
