I am not a huge perfume consumer but it is something I love receiving as a gift because I do like to try new fragrances. This is something I received for Christmas so I thought I would share my opinions.
This perfume comes in a beautiful rectangular glass bottle. It has a silver coloured metal pump and a purple fabric dispenser when activates the spritzer. This harks back to perfume bottles from the 50s and before. I love the way it evokes classic and vintage style in a really modern way with this very sharp and clean rectangular bottle. I think the overall effect is extremely stylish, modern and feminine without being overly girly. The perfume inside finishes it off with a lovely pinky coloured liquid that really sets off the other colours in this design.
The design is so elegant and stylish that I really had the highest expectations for the perfume, and it lives up to them. The perfume, like the bottle, is effortlessly feminine and elegant whilst being inherently youthful, fun and fresh. I think the scent is really a beautiful mixture of very fresh and clean notes with an underbelly of deep, sensual and mysterious scents which combine to make this intriguing and invigorating fragrance.
The notes in this perfume are benzoin, plum, patchouli, verbena, cedarwood, labdanum, cardamon, mate leaves, sandalwood, jasmine and vetiver. That's quite a mixture of notes but they blend together elegantly to give you initially a very fresh, floral and lightly spiced smell. This deepens into a woody, earthy smell and ultimately leaves you with elegant spiced sweet notes which are very sexy.
This perfume is absolutely beautiful, and every bit as elegant and sexy as the brand itself. That said, the price is a bit of a deal breaker for me. This perfume costs roughly £26 for a 30ml bottle which is on the more expensive end of what I would be willing to pay for such a little bottle. Understandably this is an expensive brand and so the perfume comes with a big price tag. Because of that I'd definitely be happy to ask for it as a gift but I'd be reluctant to splash out on this with my own money.
Overall, a beautiful perfume but a scary price.
Summary: Stunning perfume, scary price.
