Kate Moss is presenting a new fragrance Kate Moss Wild Meadow, as a limited edition for the upcoming spring and summer, in cooperation with Coty. Harmonic composition of the new edition introduces warm and cheerful nuances lit with spring rays of sun. The new limited edition is inspired by unique beauty of English landscapes at dawn, which Kate Moss has loved since always. Freshness, beauty, purity and strength of aromas are captured and formed with gentle notes of the limited fragrance Wild Meadow. I have always had great experiences with Kate Moss perfumes and her first fragrance Kate is my absolute signature scent. I found this perfume for under £10 in a discount store and had to try it. The bottle is similar in design to the Kate bottle - the only difference being the colour of the liquid is a light yellowy hue and there is a floral design on the bottle. I like the bottle but not as much as Kate's original fragrance. I think the yellowy perfume slightly resembles urine in colour (not great) and the design cheapens what I think is an extremely elegant and yet modern bottle. The bottle is, however, a great design - the perfect size for you to hold and the pumps works exactly as it should. The perfume is light and fresh with fruity and floral notes that give it a sense of sophistication. It reminds me of being in the countryside - which is exactly what it should do given the name of the perfume. It isn't something I would necessarily associate with Kate Moss - but then none of her fragrances are and I think that is great. Forgot about the brand and concentrate on the fact that these are lovely perfumes. This fragrance has central notes of pink grapefruit, bergamot and vineyard peach which move into a floral bouquet of rose, magnolia and honeysuckle and end with apple wood, benzoin and amber. The overall effect is a carefree, relaxed fragrance which is perfect for a daytime scent. It is a very relaxed smell but with a sense of modernity and sophistication too. Actually, my only issue is that it doesn't last very long - the smell probably wears off in 2/3 hours but as a day perfume that suits me fine. In terms of price I was unable to find a definitive answer - boots and other beauty stores don't stock it. I bought mine at a discount store for under £10 which is an absolute bargain for a 30ml bottle. I would advise you shop around because it obviously is possible to buy this fragrance cheaply. Overall? A pleasant summery scent with a small price tag.
For Christmas I was really, really pleased to recieve some lovely perfumes as gifts from my loved ones. This one, one of my friends got me as its her favourite scent and me...well I'd never smelt it before and have to admit that when it comes to Kate Mosse's fragrances, that when I have sniffed them have done very little for me and my nostrils however this being a summer edition of a scent called wild meadow it sounded light, girly and fresh so I couldn't wait to get stuck into it! The Packaging: The scent as far as I am aware is only available to purchase in a 30ml size and it comes in a white box with black and pink flowers with green leaves all over it and we are told in green and pink writing that it is Summer Edition Wild Meadow Ea De Toilette Spray and of course the size is stated. Other information stated on the box includes ingredients being given and contact details for Coty (the manufacturer of the product). Girly if not young looking box this is but its ok and serves its purpose. The bottle is chunky and sort of square in shape with a black transparent glass lid to the top of it with a black push button sprayer to it and on the front again we are told that it is Kate Moss Wild Meadow and there is again a little picture of flowers in pink and black depicted and finally on the bottom of the bottle the size is stated and again we are told that it is a Coty prodcut. Like I touched on already the packaging is pleasant enough, somewhat gothic and appealing more to the young I would say, the only thing I really am not keen on and will grumble about is the chunky bottle as I hate those when it comes to fragrances! The Scent: Created and released in 2010 with the help of Shyamala Maisondieu of Givaudan this is a scent blended from pink grapefruit, bergamot, peach and those ingredients make up the initial top notes of this fragrance. Then the middle/heart notes are floral and a mixture of rose, magnolia and honeysuckle line up and finish with a base of apple wood, benzoin and amber with a leafy aroma wafting over the whole lot to finish it off. You don't ned to spray very much per application at all and it really is a long lasting scent. I can spray this early in the morning and still detect it by evening so it really is a laster this one on the skin and in the bottle. However this really isn't a 'me' perfume at all! I'm not keen on the rose scent this is in the main and although it tries hard to be modern, light and airy and to try to get us all thinking of beautiful flowered meadows it makes me think more of hayfever! Its too green in my opinion sadly though there is no denying this has a fresh, clean smell to it and whilst it isn't awful and in fact really well blended without a cheap top note this to me has little personality only longevity. Try it is the best advice I can give to you and at about £15.00 a bottle in Superdrug and Boots (though do google this online as I have spotted it cheaper!) it is a cheap buy and although it is ok it really isn't my idea of a signitature scent sadly and best used in my room as an air freshener!
