Advantages: Smell, price
Darling was the first of Kylie Minogue's fragrances to be released in November 2006. It was designed by Thierry Wasser and manufactured by Coty.
The perfume bottle comes housed in a square box. The box is very simple in design and the pink hollographic effect on the front and back as can be seen in the picture is very eye-catching. It gives the product a certain air of elegance and makes the product look quite expensive.
The glass bottle of the perfume is tinted pink with an oil-in-water effect which is in keeping with the hollographic design of the box. Again, rather simple in design and oval in shape, the bottle tapers down to an interesting shape, which reminds me, and excuse me if this is a little coarse, of a rather lovely looking bum, Kylie's bum maybe? For the lid, a solid black rectangular piece of plastic is use which certainly contrasts with the delicate, feminine design of the bottle.
Wasser designed the fragrance to capture the very essence of Kylie herself. Top notes include passion fruit, freesia and lychee. The heart notes are lily and boronia and base notes are sandalwood, amberwood and vanilla.
Wasser said, "I wanted to combine strength and movement in order to reflect the intensity of my encounter with Kylie through this fragrance. The freshness of starfruit and the fondant of lychee express her optimism and energy. The powdered sweetness of Boronia and the creamy force of Australian sandalwood evoke the memory of a beloved country: Australia. The transparency of freesia and the delight of lily reveal a contasted femininity. The greediness of vanilla and the sensuality of amberwood show the affection aroused by talent and passion"
Well having read that and having a good old sniff, I think he did a pretty good job. The scent is sweet and slightly fruity and I can definitely detect the musky aroma of the sandalwood and amberwood. The sweetness hits first, quickly followed by heady musk, giving this great balance. The vanilla certainly adds substance making this smell good enough to eat, well almost.
This is one delightful fragrance. A substantial scent with great lasting power. Feminine and quite distinctive, it is suitable for daytime of evening wear. Because of the balance between fruity sweetness and musk, I would recommend it to darlings of any age.
For such a lovely scent, it is very modestly priced. As I always recommend, online is definitely where you will find the best deals, but I managed to pick up a 75ml bottle for £14.99 at TJ Hughes. It is available in £0ml, 50ml and 75ml and also can be purchased as part of a gift set.
Other fragrances from Kylie include Sweet Darling, Sexy Darling, Couture, Pink Sparkle and Showtime.

Summary: Lovely scent for day or night.
