Kate Moss Wild Meadow Eau de Toilette
Advantages: Last ages on the skin and in the bottle
Disadvantages: Smell for me, packaging is a bit young
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 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!
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!
