I read hundreds of perfume reviews since I am registered with the review sites. I used to have two perfumes which covered well my need for having a little change regarding my scent. Last Christmas I received a third one from my Chinese friend so nowadays I have 3 perfumes to cover all the occasions and fit all my moods.
When I bought my first Givenchy's Very Irresistible about 6 years ago I received a perfume sample which was even more appealing than Very Irresistible. This perfume was Moschino Couture! Eau de Parfum.
This perfume was released in 2003 and mine was manufactured in Italy by Euroitalia Srl. Moschino is an Italian fashion brand originally created in 1983 by Franco Moschino. They concentrate mostly on designing clothes. I am not that fashion monkey so I use only their perfume.
It comes in a creamy cardboard box, on the top it is written with gold capital letters Moschino then below is the Couture! label. In the middle there is a red heart and on the bottom you can see the Eau de Parfum natural spray label. My perfume contains 50 ml EDP. The inner part of the cardboard box is passionate red.
The bottle is a simple clear glass bottle with a golden heart shaped cap. There is a red velvet ribbon on the bottle which is fixed with a golden button. This gives delicacy to its appearance I think. It is really nice holding it, it is an elegant perfume.
When I open the bottle it has a sweet scent which changes after a few minutes on the skin to a dry cedar wood dominated scent. I have to admit that I am not a perfume expert so I checked the Internet for the notes. Experts say that it is a feminine scent which is fresh and crisp due to the exciting combination of the following scents:
I found that applying this perfume in the morning makes people ask me what perfume I wear. I don't apply too much before you think that, it just has a strong scent which is very pleasant and I think it fits my personality quite well. During the day I don't feel it but I never apply it again. I found however that when I go out jogging it can be felt again so it lasts long. I am satisfied with this lasting time.
Well, this is not a widely available perfume. I bought my current bottle in Lloyds Pharmacy on the last day of the last year for 15 pounds. It was on half price offer so I couldn't leave the last bottle there. You can find it mostly online. The Amazon sells it currently in a gift set for 41 pounds including P&P which I think is expensive and much more than I would pay for it. I tried the shower gel and body lotion once when I had a gift set but I wasn't impressed about them at all. They have the same scent but weren't of outstanding quality.
I think this is a fabulous feminine scent which lasts quite long. I love the cedar wood scent of it which is the longest lasting among all of them. I received lots of compliments when wearing this perfume. I like that it is not very widely used so I have the feeling of being unique. I find it really appealing to me and together with my Very Irresistible and now Prada they cover all my needs for having lovely scent for all the occasions. I have to admit that I don't really save a perfume for special occasions; I am more Carpe Diem regarding perfumes, makeup and even clothes. Every day is special so I chose according to my actual mood in the morning.
