      Great value, beautifully presented and beautiful smelling scent

      This has to be one of my all time favourite scents.
      It has everything.
      It's beautifully presented in a diamond shaped bottle, which usually comes in a beautiful navy satin covered box,
      it's a sweet and girly smelling fragrance that is not at all heady or heavy but has a long lasting light smelling fragrance throughout the day.
      Its good value for money and made by an established designer .
      What I like about this perfume is that not many people wear it. It's not been massively advertised so it would seem that its not that well know, it's like a little hidden gem.
      The scent itself makes me think of parma violets with a hint of vanilla and amber.it's not heavy enough to become sickly though.
      Definitely one of the most feminine scents I have come across. This is the type of perfume guys can by their other halves without the worry they might not like it as long as they are a girly girl it's a pretty safe bet!
      They also do a show gel in this which is absolutely gorgeous! It really gives it the finishing touch if you can have a bath or show with the gel first and then spritz the perfume.

      good quality

      Chopard: Wish, Eau de Parfum can be bought on Amazon or online at perfume sites, I bought it in town at a shop that just sells perfumes cheaper than other stores it is called Passion for Perfume and a 30 ml bottle of this cost me £17.50 which is a reasonable price to pay for an eau de parfum. I don't mind paying more if its a good parfum and this one is good but I managed to find it in the store cheaper than online.

      Louis-Ulysse Chopard is a swiss company founded in 1860, they were well known for making watches and jewellery but then Chopard branched out into producing luxury fragrances and are very sucessful in this field too.They have a wide range of perfumes to choose from but I think this one is one of their best.

      The bottle of eau de parfum is called Wish and it has a very distinctive design its like a crystal dropper or a diamond shaped bottle and is a see through glass which shows the light blue parfum inside.
      You can get this in a spray bottle as well and the bottles are simular to this one. I love the design it is trendy and modern, an eye catching design if your in a perfume shop and the liquid being blue also draws your eyes to it on the shelf of the shop displays.
      The packages it comes in are also blue coloured boxes.

      The parfum itself is a subtle parfume unless you put a lot of it on and it lasts all day, a little dab on each wrist should be enough to keep this lingering on your skin all day. Some perfumes are not for people with sensative skins but this one is alright for me and hasn't irritated me.
      It has tones of amber, patchoilli and sandlewood which are known for their lasting scents, on top of this are floral and spicy tones.
      its quite a nice blend of scents, not too overpowering.

      This can make a great present for any girl or woman as its an elegant bottle with a nice scent that can be diplayed on a dressing table and also it looks an expensive product even though its a reasonable price.

      The spray eau de parfum is cheaper than the bottle but I like to collect the bottles on my dressing table so I always buy bottles not sprays. I would recommend this eau de parfum to you as it has a unique scent and is affordable, it will make a good present and its from a well known brand and not a cheap smell.

        Try before you buy (I know that's tricky to do)

        The fragrance
        - - - - - - - - - - -

        really tried to love WISH; it contains so many of my favourite scent notes. Plus, I love how it applies bitter, and then dries down to a sweet, creamy vanilla/caramel scent.

        I do love the contrast between the top and base notes. However, I had to give in; it is just too strong for me to wear. The notes of patchouli are especially overwhelming; it hits you straight in the face and hides the other notes for a good hour or so.

        When the fragrance has settled down on my skin I like the slightly powdery smell and then the creamy, soft sweetness it dries down with.


        - - - - - - - - - -
        Scent notes
        - - - - - - - - - -

        honeysuckle, wild strawberry, black locust, orange blossom, coconut, gooseberry, Brazilian rosewood, honey, violet, orchid, milk, heliotrope, lily-of-the-valley, sandalwood, amber, patchouli, vanilla, caramel and incense.


        - - - - - - - - -
        The bottle
        - - - - - - - - -

        The diamond shaped bottle is stunning to look at, but since it rests on it's side it's not secure... so it's prone to rolling and being knocked onto the floor.

        Other buying considerations
        - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

        As it's a strong fragrance the lasting power is good, I can still smell it after a working day.

        WISH would be nicely comforting and warming during autumn/winter, so it's best worn in colder weather. It's suitable for work and evening wear; it's a bit too much for casual wear.

        I do understand the comparions this perfume gets to Theirry Mulgar's Angel: WISH does remind me strongly of my Angel wearing years. I blame the patchouli overkill. To be fair WISH isn't as cloying or sickly sweet, but it'd be best to avoid in warmer weather.


        - - - - - - - - -
        My opinion
        - - - - - - - - -

        I'd read loads of glowing reviews for WISH, so went ahead and ordered a bottle [blind. I couldn't find it for sale in any shops to test beforehand] and was ultimately disappointed.

        Lots of the scent notes are undectable; There's simply too much going on. And what I am able to seperate appears stronger, as the hidden notes add to the potency.

        RRP
        - - - - - -

        30ml: £25
        50ml: £36
        75ml: £41

        I've looked in many chain and department stores for WISH, but couldn't find it and the assistants looked blank when I asked about Chopard fragrances, so it's either exclusive to upper end stores or has been discontinued.

        It's still easy to find online though; The 30ml and 50ml bottles are usually under the £20 mark, while the 75ml bottle is around £30.

          Wish is a wonderful, fairly heavy, but gorgeous perfume

          This is an absolutely beautiful perfume. I have been a fan of Chopard perfumes for a long time and thought that they had excelled themselves with their casmir scent but Wish is so gorgeous I barely wear anything else these days. It is difficult to describe the scent but for me there seems to be a wonderful mix of vanilla, caramel and sandalwood that culminate to give an amazing, sophisticated scent . I have always loved the smell of sandalwood and I think this is why I love this perfume so much. The perfume comes in a very classy bottle. The bottle is like a glass diamond and the blue of the blue tones of the scent look beautiful in the bottle. The bottle is finished with a silver cap. This scent is sumptuous. It is heavy without being overpowering and can be worn at any time of the day. Wish has been compared with Angel on occasions but having owned both, Wish wins hands down. In fact, I gave my bottle of Angel away but nobody with be getting their hands on my Wish.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          A great fragrance particulary for the evening.

          A few years ago, I was appealing to family that if they were stuck for birthday/Christmas present ideas, I would very much welcome some new perfumes. Fast forward a couple of years and my dressing table would now give any shop fragrance counter a run for its money.

          Anyway, one eau de parfum that I received as a present recently was one by Chopard, called Wish. Mine is a 30ml bottle, which I have seen retailing at around £20 or so.

          I have never owned anything created by Chopard, but from a little browse on the internet, it seems that the designer prides himself on luxurious and beautiful designs, and in fact the only word to describe the bottle of this eau de parfum is 'beautiful'. It resembles a large cut diamond, made of clear glass allowing you to see the blue perfume inside. The top of the bottle is silver with the Chopard Wish label etched into it. All in all, it looks a classy, elegant perfume that most would be proud to have sitting on their dressing table.

          This is actually classified as oriental in terms of its fragrance, and it is easy to understand why upon spraying it. This eau de parfum combines a woody blend of strawberry, coconut, rosewood, along with milk, orchid, helitrope and lily of the valley, as well as tones of caramel, vanilla, sandal and patchouli.

          I certainly can't say that I have ever heard of some of these tones, but there is a definite oriental and vanilla scent upon spraying. It is neither too flowery not too spicy, but rather a unique blend of both, without being too heavy.

          When I first sprayed this eau de parfum, I wasn't quite sure I liked it. It is rather different from the flowery scents that I usually go for, however, with every spray and smell of it on my skin, I became rather fond of it, and I felt that it gave me a very sophisticated scent.

          I have to say, that although I do sometimes wear this fragrance to work, it is probably more suited to evening wear, since it has that more elegant, sophisticated scent to it.

          The best thing about this fragrance is its duration. I can't believe how long it lingers on my skin, and even when leaving work, I can still smell it on my wrist. I have had many compliments about this fragrance, and I have to say that it is now one of my favourites on my dressing table.

          Overall, if you are looking for a fragrance that isn't too flowery, but a little more oriental, giving an elegant classy scent, then this would be a good choice. I love the fact that is lasts all day, a very important factor for me when looking for fragrances, and having received so many compliments, I feel great when I am wearing it. A great choice for fragrance

            You just have to love it

            Wish - I wish I had know this sooner, I cannot believe that it has been out there since 1997 and I did not know about it. I was introduced to it by a workmate when I started a my new job. She is much younger than me and I was not sure that we would like the same smells, but she sprayed some of it on me and I smiled, as you do. My first impression actually was that it was a bit too fruity, flowery for me, a bit fresh, but after a while I noticed a change and it becomes more woody and deeper, now that was lovely. Another thing I love about it is that it lasts and lasts, and when I sniff a jumper that I have been wearing the previous day or even longer ago, there it is again, that lovely smell. I just had to go out and buy a bottle, or would you call it a jewel, just had to. Best buy I ever made, I got a bargain at perfumepoint and it was only 19.99 for 75ml. Excellent value for money. This perfume usually lies in the price range of about 20-25 bPound for 50ml. I just love the way the bottle lies on my dressing table and shimmers in the mirror, the clear glass reflecting the light blue liquid inside. And when I pick it up to use it, I also love the way the glass feels quite heavy, makes me feel that I am holding quality. So, I can only say, thanks to my workmate I have found a revelation. This is one of those perfumes that becomes a friend, one you want to have by your side.

              If I could only ever buy one more fragrance, it would have to be this one. I really adore it... The first thing that you notice about this product is the unique bootle, or flacon as the manufacturer prefers to call it. the clear bottle is in the shape of a multifaceted jewel with a very smart silver top. the writing is embossed to make it look very classy - and very sexy... the fragrance itself is an unsual but pretty pale blue colour. the topnote is a combination of acacia flower, exotic berries and honeysuckle; the heartnote is osmanthus flower, patchouli and black violet; and the drydown is incense, amber and sandalwood. It is a most unusual collection, but it really does work very well... I also think that the price is very good for such a good product. I paid £23 for the 30ml eau de parfum.

                when i originally tried this perfume as it was a gift from a friend. With its rich vanilla scent, its perfect for those who love to smell warm. Recent studies have found that perfumes with a vanilla scent help to take away the cravings for sweet foods especially chocolate. All the more reason to wear it everyday as an aid to weight loss. Its not a cheap perfume retailing at about £60 for 100ml but you don't need to use much as it lasts for ages. I would highly recommend buying a bottle as a gift or a special treat to yourself!
