So this review/post was planned for last week, but as it turns out, trying to write a well-rounded review on perfume during a week of terribly bad allergies isn’t the easiest thing to do!
First, I just gotta say how awesome the unboxing experience was! I didn’t take any photos, but the perfume arrived from the Fragrance Outlet in a high quality box and nice ribbon. Perfect for gifting, if that’s your kind of thing! Sheesh – I wish I had taken pictures. It was seriously so pretty! I guess you’ll just have to take my word for it 😉
As I was talking to my friend Kaitlyn about writing this review, she mentioned some of the things she looks for when picking out a new perfume, and I liked her set of requirements:
- Does it smell like grandma perfume? No.
- Is it too strong? Nope!
- Does it make me feel pretty? Sure does!
- Does the smell last longer than 10 seconds? Yup!
All good things!
What does it actually smell like, you ask? Well my rather uneducated nose would say “kind of fresh and floral but not too girly or overpowering.” Fragrance Outlet on the other hand has a much more accurate description:
- Top notes: Blackcurrant, violet leaves, ivy
- Middle notes: Lily, rose, ylang-ylang, freesia
- Base notes: Musk, cedar and vetiver
See, exactly like I said – kind of floral, but not too girly! Wearable on a day to day basis, if you’re into that, but also perfectly good for special occasions! Two thumbs up, for sure 🙂
