Advantages: Will last all day
Disadvantages: Smells a little too strong for me
** My Experience **
I received this perfume in miniature form as part of a gift set of miniature Dolce & Gabbana perfumes. I have to say that this was not my favourite perfume in the bunch simply because I felt that it smelled too old for me. I had not heard of this perfume before receiving it as part of the set, and I don't think the packaging did it any favours. This is just my opinion and some people may not agree but I found that the packaging looked quite classic, which meant that I immediately associated it with an older perfume for an older generation. Of course, I do not immediately judge a perfume by its packaging but combined with the strong depth of the fragrance it reminded me of something my Gran would wear.
** The Fragrance **
This perfume was first introduced to the market in 1992 and has been very popular since. The scent has a luxurious smell to it and is quite floral. It has notes of basil, orange flowers, tangerine, carnation, marigold and vanilla. This fragrance is not overly floral or citrus in smell but I personally found it to be quite strong. You certainly don't need to reapply it throughout the day as one spray will definitely last you.
** Packaging **
As I said earlier in the review, I personally found the packaging to have quite a dated look. The perfume comes in a cuboid shaped box which is quite a deep red/orange colour and has the brand name in black and gold on the front. The actual perfume bottle is very classically designed and is quite simplistic. It is cuboid in shape and is clear so you can easily see how much of the fragrance you have used. The actual spray part of the bottle is red with a slight gold band underneath.
** Price **
You can buy this fragrance for around £40-£45 for 50ml in most high street stores such as Boots, Debenhams, John Lewis and House of Fraser. You will probably be able to get it cheaper online though with most prices starting around £30-£35.
** Summary **
Although I personally found this perfume to be too strong a scent for me, this is purely my opinion and I am very picky about my perfumes so this will come as no surprise to some that I was so judgemental of this one. I personally feel this fragrance would be more suited to the older generation but again, this is purely my opinion and I apologise in advance if any of you young ones wear this!
Summary: A bit strong for my liking
