I was actually given this perfume by an ex partner of mine with really expensive taste (a good but also a downside trust me!) and one of the gifts he gave me one valentines day was this perfume. It's actually a really popular perfume of mine and has stayed with me even after he has long gone!
- The Bottle -
It comes in a nice round red bottle, which has slits in it, shaped similar to slices of an apple having been taken out. Although it is red it is still clear glass so you can see through at the perfume inside. The lid is also glass and has a flower petal shape with straight edges which looks really nice and gives it a feisty distinct look. The overall appearance of the bottle is really nice, it's easy and comfortable to hold and squirt myself all over. It does tend to blend in on my dresser with my Marc Jacobs Dot perfume which is also a red circular bottle but much more extravagantly designed so it sits at the more inferior scale lol.
- The Perfume -
The perfume is really lovely and sweet in a passionate and hearty way as it begins with a fresh bounce of bergamot, pink berry and morello cherry which creates a sexy aroma of sweet fruity freshness. It's flattering, gorgeous and really smells AMAZING. The morello cherry is the best feature to pick out of these top notes as a nice sweet scent which lingers for ages. It's the most distinct aroma I can smell and I must say it's very intimate and I could smell it all day long.
It then descends into a new level of really soft powdery floral essence of jasmine, violet and iris which all compliment each other well and is gentle on the skin and can be smelt on a good embrace. Base notes consist of a rich oriental trail of patchouli, vanilla, tonka bean and benzoin which smell beautiful and is a very summery floral scent.
- Overall -
I absolutely love this perfume and I forgot how much of a delight it is to wear. It is quite an exotic, summery scent but in the winter times it can be that little boost to lift your spirits and get you feeling all warm and fuzzy again. The cherry essence is definitely the selling aroma of this perfume and if your a fan of a hearty, rich sweet smell which is not overbearing or suffocating you will love this eau de parfum. It's light wearing and has good lasting power so would definitely recommend it! It can be bought for around a £55 for a 100ml bottle which I think is a decent price for an exquisite perfume.
