Narciso Rodriguez Her Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Unfortunatly for me there were none
Disadvantages: Too strong at first, no staying power
I had never heard of Narciso Rodriguez nor seen this perfume before until I was lucky enough to receive a free sample of it. I got a nice little spray bottle but of course its nothing like the full size bottle so I have no idea what type of packaging this comes with, however I do know the bottle is an oblong shape and pink in colour which fits very well with the name of the perfume, For Her. The full size bottle looks very girly and pretty.
Narciso Rodriguez For Her eau de parfum is described as " a fragrance of seduction and femininity". and has the following notes:-
Top-- Pink floral
When I first sprayed For Her on me I was shocked, the initial smell was so strong and chemical I wondered for a second if it was a perfume, it got in the back of my throat and smelt harsh. I couldn't detect any pink floral smell at all. The initial chemical smell wore off very quickly and I was left with a sharp almost fruity smell. I wasn't keen on this it was far too harsh for me but I was running late for work so I just left it.
As the fragrance developed the smell softened and actually did start to smell slightly floral, still not what I would call a real floral fragrance but the harsh sharpness had gone. The smell was still strong and I was glad I hadn't sprayed too much on.
Gradually the perfume changed and although it had turned slightly more floral In my opinion this didn't really develop as I had hoped. The perfume changed to a sweet musky fragrance which was slightly spicy, at this point For Her started to remind me of Prada by Prada my all time favourite. For me personally this fragrance didn't really change after this, it remained musky for the remainder if the time which wasn't that long. By lunch time the smell had all but gone I could hardly smell it at all.
I was pleased to have tried this eau de parfum but I certainly wont be buying a full size bottle and I don't really recommend it. The smell is far too strong and harsh to start with and when it settles into more of a pleasant smell it doesn't last very long at all. This wouldn't, in my opinion, be suitable for young teenagers I would say its more of a slightly older fragrance, I would also say this would be suitable for daytime or evenings but you may need to top it up several times
If you think this perfume may be for you and fancy trying it then Debenhans currently have the eau de parfum on sale for £55.14 for 50mls and £71.48 for 100mls. Its slightly cheaper online at www.theperfumeshop.com where a 50ml bottle will cost £54.20 and 100mls is £69.99, however this small saving would probably be eaten up with postage.
All in all I was disappointed with For Her by Narciso Rodriguez, for the price being asked for it I would want it to have much better lasting power, on me it soon fades away.
