Advantages: smell, luxury, elegant, bottle, design
Disadvantages: price, a little more mature
Perfume is something I never really buy myself as I always end up receiving it as a gift around the festive period. This is something I was given by my Grandmother for Christmas and thought I would share my thoughts and feelings about it.
This perfume comes in a rather elegant long rectangular shaped glass bottle. There is a metal t-shaped pump at the top of the bottle which is silver in colour. There is no separate lid for this as the t-shaped pump acts as the dispenser and lid in a sense. The liquid perfume inside is a slightly yellowy/green coloured but very pale (almost like urine...?). It looks very pretty when combined with the cut glass and metal pump and the overall look of the bottle is very elegant and timeless. I would happily give this to my grandmother or my best friend. That said, my one criticism of the bottle is that it isn't overly feminine - this could easily be mistaken for a aftershave rather than a perfume.
The smell of the perfume is what I would describe as a mature scent. By this I mean it is quite a strong smell that has a older smell to it which I would associate with an elegant woman in her 40s/50s. This is no bad thing, it means the scent is timeless and not just a whim of youth. That said, for a younger person it might seem a little too mature - though personally I quite like it.
It does also feel very refreshing though and it something that I would happily wear in both summer and winter, day or night. There are definitely floral and spice notes in this scent as it reminds me a little bit of warm winter spices like cinnamon and nutmeg. I also can smell some beautiful deep floral scents which feel almost tropical, this is a lovely tough and gives the perfume a little bit of mystery as well.
The perfume does also mellow after it has been sprayed and deepens to an almost musky woody smell which is really lovely when combined with the floral and spice notes. Overall, this is a beautiful rich perfume that definitely has a freshness to it but also a deep, sensual level which makes it very womanly and sexy.
The perfume is noticeably of good quality as the smell lasts for a very long time once sprayed. I can last a whole day and get home still being able to smell this scent on myself which is great. In terms of longevity and quality I would definitely recommend this perfume as for me it probably has the best holding power of anything I have tried.
This perfume retails at roughly £30 for a 30ml bottle which does make it rather expensive. As a gift this is perfect because I do love trying out new perfumes. Personally at this stage in my life I like to use something a little more relaxed and youthful but this will certainly be a perfume I return to when I get a little bit older and wiser.
Overall, a lovely elegant perfume but the price is a bit steep.
Summary: A nice scent but a bit expensive for me.
