Carolina Herrera was born in Caracas Venezuela in 1969. Actually she is a designer of clothing and perfume. When she became very successful, she moved with her family to New York. She started her business already in 1980 but it was not until 1987 that her first fragrance came on the market. She is very successful and has a boutique in New York on Madison Avenue. Worldwide she is known for her perfumes and clothing.
Carolina Herrera: 212, Eau de Toilette comes in a pretty striking bottle. It has two white rounded edges and the body consists of a silver metal tube. The number 212 is in large numbers in silver. Underneath is in small black letters Carolina Herrera. On the cardboard are the ingredients and fragrance components it contains. It's a beautiful bottle that stands out of the rest of the bottles.
The eau de Toilette smells very feminine and has a light floral fragrance with a soft scent of musk that comes up after a while. The ingredients are Gardenia, Mandarin, Bergamot, Rosette, chamomile, White Lily, Satinwood, Sandalwood and Musk.
It is a fresh, sweet and elegant scented eau de toilette and is very refreshing. This eau de toilette last all day. Especially in the beginning you will notice more a floral scent and later on the musk comes more forward. It's a light scent which makes it perfect for day time and it reminds me a bit of summer. You can buy the Carolina Herrera: 212, Eau de Toilette 30ml bottle for around 17 pounds.
This is 1 of my sister's favourite Perfumes. It has been out for a good few years, and I buy her a bottle for her Birthday every year. I suppose me doing this means she probably doesn't have to buy her own that often, so that will be good for her. I would way that I've been buying it for about 6 years and she still insists that this is 1 of her favourites.
I'm not sure if this is available in a smaller bottle, but I buy the 100ml bottle online and I get it for just under £33. I believe the recommended retail price for this is about £10 more, but suppose this would be more expensive in shops like Boots.
The box for this is a simple box. It is a crisp white colour and the lettering is in black. The bottle is a nice shape as well, and looks like the Dooyoo picture. It would be a bit bard to describe the look of the bottle, but I would say it is sort of in the shape of a Pill shape. Although it is sort of rounded at the bottom it still stands stable enough as there is a bit of a flat bit on the bottom. A nice and different shape to a bottle.
After all these years of buying it for her I bought myself a bottle last year. I use a lot of Perfumes, and although there is those which are up there in my top 10 or whatever, I still like to try others as you never know what is out there. In fact that is the way that most of my favourite Perfumes have become my favourites is by smelling them by chance or just buying them if they are ranked the same kind of smell as a favourite of mine.
So how does this Perfume smell? According to the website this is a Gentle, Floral and refreshing fragrance. It combines a blend of light florals, musky undertones, soft powdery flowers as well as white flower notes of Gardenia, Lily of the Valley and Jasmine. From reading that part you would think that this would be a powdery scent, which in some ways I guess it is, but it is more crisp, clean and refreshing than what you would think. The Jasmine gives a nice warming scent and the White Florals aren't as Flowery as you would think. You can certainly smell the dash of the Lily of the Valley but it isn't as old smelling as I thought it would be. I tend to go more for Fruity scents, and this certainly isn't fruity. But the different notes that this contains is a nice change.
This lasts a good lenght of time as well after spraying,. I sprayed this in the morning and even a couple of sprays lasted a good lenght of time. I could still smell this later on at night. I do often reapply through the day just to freshen up.
A nice classic kind of scent. This has been out since around 1997 so it must be doing something right to still be on sale. Available from most Perfume Websites and worth a try if you like White floral scents from a good designer brand.
This is my fav perfume of the moment. It has an elegant fresh scent. I love it that there is two seperate bottles of the perfume. One for my handbag and one for my perfume table! I love the smell, much perfer it to 212 Sexy. Its deffinately a sexy fragrance and people do ask what perfume i am wearing when i wear it. So deff very noticeable. Would class this as my signature scent
Deffinately a very handy size and very durable for the handbag! The frosted glass is nice too
Its quite a reasonable priced perfume. Well worth what it retails for
I think it has an elegant smell. Its lasts quite a long time but not all day / night. But as I keep it in my bag its quite easy to re-spray
All in all, i think this perfume can be liked by most people. Deff worth buying it.
I love this perfume!
The bottle is approx 10 cm long and 3 cm wide and is a good size to put in your handbag whilst out and about! I like the frosted glass bit of the bottle but the ends are made of plastic and feel a bit cheap.
However the perfume doesn't smell at all cheap.
It is quite a strong perfume, so I don't think you need much of it which is good as it lasts longer. It is long-lasting once on and it smells quite sexy and sensual; a bit like musk. I think it's suited more to being worn at night although it's quite a light frangrance so it's equally as suitable to wear in the daytime.
I have found that this fragrance isn't very common. It isn't one you smell all the time when people walk past. But because it's distinctive, people notice and always ask 'ooh what's that perfume?'.
This is definately a perfume I will keep buying :)
