Here is the actual lamp, again, it's a lil dark here, cause I made this post at night.. I'm planning to make a white box with it, just like this picture below.. ^^
Look at the bottle.. It's so classy, simple yet elegant. I love the design. It doesn't have too much accessories on it, which is important.. =) It's created by Laurent le Gaurnec and Clement Gavarry. The Fragrance Notes are: mandarin, bergamot, rosewood, lavender, apple martini, patchouli, paper whites, orchid, cedar, white amber, musk and woods.
From the first spray, I can smell a strong and sharp scent instantly. I’m not a big fan of strong fragrance, I think the first impression was too strong and strucked my nose real hard. Or was it because it's Eau de Parfum? I usually wear EDT, so maybe my nose is not used to it.
But I think my mom loves it. She said to me, "This is the perfume that makes your head turn when you smell it." And that is true. When you wear this, people will notice that you smell good, hehe.. ^^
The mandarin note was soft, but it’s kinda woody, not too feminine. It's not that type of sweet floral fragrance, obviously SJP knew best.. ^^ I can't really smell the lavender, (I love Lavender!) but it's okay.. I think the head notes are really stood out, and it's melted on your skin. If you like citrus scent, then this is might be the one you're looking for.
After a while, it will dry down to more musky. I don't get the rosewood at all, cedar was really over the top. The heart notes really long lasting and in my opinion, it's getting better by the time.
And then, after a long.. time.. (I do mean it, a long time..) The musk and wood notes will linger on your skin.. The base notes here are really deep, which I found very appealing.. ^^
Bottomline: This SJP perfume really have character, and now I can see why so many women all over the world love it. I think it can be classified as woody citrus fragrance with a twist. 5 (Five) Stars! ^^
Ok, next is mine.. Oooh.. I'm so thrilled about it! ^^
Let me know what your fave fragrances are, cause I'm a fragrance lover myself! ^^
