Superdrug has a variety of perfumes on display and one can’t help not looking at the range of bottles they have. I found this bottle on special offer for just £5!
I’ve tried Kate Moss perfumes before, albeit it being a sample, and I have to say they smelled gorgeous.
The box is purple with gold and black flowers all over the box. The bottle is attractive although it is quite simple. It’s made of purple glass and the name of the perfume, Muse, is written on the top part of the bottle while the name of the celebrity, Kate Moss, is written on the bottom part of the bottle. In the middle of the bottle there is a small pattern formed, it consists of a few squares which are inside each other. The neck of the bottle is golden with some nice drawings of roses and leaves topped with a square shaped purple cap.
Top notes : plum, rhubarb and black currant cream
Heart notes : peony, tiger orchid and purple violets
Base notes : ambergris, white musk, and chocolate
KATE MOSS VINTAGE MUSE
This perfume was launched in July 2010 by the supermodel Kate Moss. They said that the design of it was quite reminiscent of the classic perfumes made in the 1920s and 1930s and they were right. From the first time I sprayed it I remembered Opium but after a few times later I thought it was closer to Poison by Christian Dior.
The opening wasn’t as I expected, it was a bit sharp and bitter, it was weird and slightly off putting. I didn’t like it at the beginning but when the notes settled down a bit, it dried up to a much nicer scent, a scent that is more flowery and musky.
I liked the second stage the perfume as it is more floral and a lot calmer. The violet gave the perfume elegancy, it made it just that little bit more sophisticated.
A few minutes later, I noticed there was a progression in the smell of this scent. The last stage was the best one in my opinion. The white musk was light and powdery while the heaviness of the chocolate gave the perfume that extra hint of sweetness which ultimately pushed it into becoming a better perfume that lasted for hours!
PRICES AND AVAILABILITY
It’s available in all good perfume shops and online as well. The perfume is available only as EDT, available in sizes of 15ml, 30ml and 50 ml. You can buy them with a complementing collection of body spray and body lotion. The price of a single 50 ml bottle varies between £5-£20.
I liked this one but I would only pay £5 for it! It has quite a strong yet bitter start but finished beautifully. It’s a bit too heavy for some as it might come across as a quite rich and deep scent.
I have used quite a few Kate Moss fragrances over the years and this is my most recent acquisition. This is a new take on the original Vintage scent from the range (already reviewed). Vintage Muse is meant to be a luxury scent that speaks of femininity, sensuality and charm. I love feminine fragrances so you can imagine how excited I was to try this.
The perfume comes in a stunning art deco style bottle just like the Vintage perfume. This one is made from a pretty purple coloured glassy and has the same concentric square design in the glass which speaks of 1930s architecture so strongly. There is also a little decorative band around the pump, a silver coloured metal pump and a clear purple plastic lid. Much like the other bottle I think this is very stylish and luxury looking but the plastic cap somewhat lets it down.
This perfume is like a darker and more mysterious version of the Vintage scent. It has the same fruity floral smell to it but the contents is much darker and is evocative of the night. The top notes are plum, rhubarb and blackcurrant. The heart notes are peony, orchid and violets. The base notes are ambergis, white musk and chocolate. As you can imagine this scent is a veritable fruity chocolatey mix with a hint or florals which reminds me of eating a chocolate fruit pie on the veranda of a beautiful home in the twilight.
What I really love about this perfume is how different it is from anything I ordinarily wear. I personally really like very fresh, powdery floral scents but this has a much darker tone to it and a real sense of mystery. I love how intriguing each layer is and how each scent adds another sensual note to this fragrance.
I think this is less versatile than other scents from the brand because it is very much suited to night time wear rather than day time, where it would seem a little heavy. I think this is a very sexy scent and definitely makes me feel very feminine and alluring when I wear it. For those not keen on fruity smells though this is one to avoid as it has a real heady ripe scent.
This perfume is widely available for around £10 for a 30ml bottle and around £15 for a 50ml. This is such a decent price considering how much perfumes can be these days. This is definitely a perfume I would buy again in a flash and will continue to wear quite happily, though only in the evening.
Overall, a nice night time scent from this range.
