I seem to have had a bottle of J. Del Pozo Duende Eau de Toilette for as long as I can remember. I cannot remember when or where it was from and know that I have moved house numerous times with this bottle and always forget about it. Having just reminded myself of the smell I am now really not sure why I have not been wearing it for all of this time. It will be staying out on my dressing table from now on.
Nice feeling plain curved base with elaborate cap. The cap is a swirl of plastic that looks like it may be a flame effect. Overall I like the bottle but I think the outer box packaging lets it down. The box is pastel colours and just looks a bit dated to me.
Top notes are detailed to be: bergamot, citrus and peach
Middle notes: jasmine, orange blossom and oakmoss
Base notes: tuberose, musk and sandalwood
For me the peach note stands out the most and Duende is floral and a little sweet and creamy. It is a unique scent that stands out from the rest and is instantly recognisable. I think it may be a love it or hate it kind of smell. For me I love it and it is not a perfume I would wear everyday but I'm glad I have found it in my wardrobe.
Just a few squirts are all that is needed as although the fragrance is not overpowering it is strong and so probably more of a night out perfume than one you would wear to work day to day. The fragrance lasts for hours, it fades after a few hours but doesn't seem to disappear.
As I say at the beginning of this review I cannot remember where I got this perfume from or how much I paid. Duende is for sale on Amazon for £28.42 for 100ml which I think is a bargain.
This is a great smelling long lasting perfume. The bottle feels nice in your hand and it is reasonably priced. I have never seen this for sale in a shop but think it is one to look out for.
