      They do say that sequels are never as good as the original....

      I'm not an expert on different notes and scents within perfumes, but I know what smells pretty or sophisticated and I also know what doesn't!
      I have always loved the original Jennifer Lopez: Live perfume. It's warm, spicy and a scent that doesn't overpower, although does last a good day whereby there's no need to re-apply.

      I asked for the original scent for Christmas off of my partner and was pleasantly surprised to see he's bought a "limited edition" Platinum variation instead. Very apt for Christmas thanks to it's encrusted snowflake charm and icy blue bottle. I couldn't wait to smell this...

      I was very very dissappointed. It is the complete opposite of the original Live perfume in that it smells "cold", peppery and leaves a kind of soapy tone for around 1hour after application. After this time, the scent disappears. I know this because I'd put it on on Boxing day morning and by the time I got to visit my parents approx 2.5hrs later I asked her what she thought to which replied "what is it?". I had to explain that it wasn't the faint aroma of cheap soap I'd used in the shower that morning, it was in fact perfume. I have tried to give this away to both of my sisters and my friend, all of which declined my offer! I think this says it all.

      I know that perfume smells different depending on the different skin types so this may be why it is non too pleasing, and I guess that because I love the original so much it could only add to my disappointment too. But seriously, I'd recommend you try before you buy at least.

      Well worth tracking down

      ------------------------------------------
      The majority of my reviews are based around cosmetics and fragrances.
      It's been like that since I joined DooYoo though; I don't want to be seen as someone who is only doing it for the sake of getting more miles per review.

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

      LIVE PLATINUM is similar to the original Live, but the citrus notes have been played down & mixed with slightly sweet fruits. I love how the sweet fruit & sharp floral notes have been blended together so the fragrance doesn't learn either way too far.

      LIVE PLATINUM also contains a floral heart. Like Glow, there is a sharp vibe to give the fragrance a fresh, icy jolt of energy. The gentle base is the same as the original, but the musk, vanilla & amber is slightly more noticeable here. It seems 'warm' and comforting to me. Very well done.

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

      The bottle is the same as Live, but it's prismatic (similar to the way patrol shines varying shades in the light) with frosted blue, green, gold & lilac, plus it has a cute snowflake charm around the bottle neck, which I've put on a necklace.

      Other buying considerations

      As the packaging suggests, this is a autumn/winter scent. I've tried it in warmer weather, but it doesn't have the same energizing rush and is quite cloying.

      The staying power isn't too bad, but isn't great; About 4 hours.

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

      I think LIVE PLATINUM has the edge over Live as it is easier to wear. I still really like the spiciness of the original, but the freshness of this appeals to me more. It's a shame this is a limited edition, I'm going to buy a few bottles for back-up.

      Price
      - - - - -

      It is only available in 50ml bottles and I've never seen it in high street shops, so you'll need to order it online. The price varies between £25 to £35.
