WHAT IS IT?
Perfume from Madonna, the name is Couture and it came in a set with a body spray and a tube of body lotion.
I think the bottle is very plain and I think it is plastic that has been made to look like glass because it feels very cheap and has scratched badly. The lid is a very ugly pink colour and does not look right on this shape of bottle I do not think.
I am thinking that it is hard to describe this fragrance because it smells very cheap but for a cheap perfume it is not so bad. It is sweet and fruity but I cannot smell anything that I recognise, nobody would ever think that it was a designer perfume but it is just as nice as some you can buy from Avon. The fragrance does not stay on my skin for very long and that is a surprise because it is a strong fragrance when you first spray it on and stays quite strong for more than 2 hours. It fades very quickly and goes to no smell at all as soon as it has started to fade.
My husband says it smells acidic but I do not think so, it is very strong and basic because it is such cheap perfume but it does not make me recoil.
WHAT I THINK
I have this perfume because my grandfather gave it to my young daughter for her birthday. She is too young for such gifts so I replaced it with something that was more suited to her and kept the perfume for myself because my grandfather did not know better or understand children.
I would not ever buy it for myself and I do not know if it is truly endorsed by Madonna but I would think not because it is so cheap. Madonna is cheap also but the perfume still would not suit her brand. It does not smell of anything natural and is chemical fragrance only but it is still nice to wear because it is fresh and full of youth.
I would wear it only in the home or if I knew I was only going out on short errands. I would not wear this perfume on a working day or to socialise because I like to show a better side to myself with my perfume.
This whole gift set costs only £6, I still would not buy it for myself but it would be a good gift for girls of an older age than my daughter.
3 Dooyoo Stars.
A little something I bought whilst having a nose through poundland, I'm quite impressed with the perfumes there, considering there only a pound too! But not with this one. I mean I guess 50ml It will last you a good few months if you actually like the smell.
*The box and bottle*
The box does have a very funky design a red and white stripy box with Madonna's logo on it (think I may have seen it on one of her albums not so sure though). The bottle is kind of tear drop shaped with a square top which is also funky. The bottle holds 50ml of perfume which would last about three months if worn daily. The top of the spray also has an odd habit of falling off which is very annoying.
I didn't find the smell at all to my liking, the first few sprays gave me flower vase water mixed with shampoo, when it was settling I seemed to smell more shampoo, talcum powder and maybe rose and lavender. The settled smell was quite nice and floral actually but wasn't particularly strong and seemed to disappear after a few hours
I would recommend it to a friend that liked this type of perfume yes, It's only a pound, it lasts a while and its quite cute, but it isn't something I would actually wear myself.
