John Galliano–Parlez Moi d’Amour perfume review

Hello everyone! I just wanna share this quick post cause I’m so happy! The Parlez Moi d’Amour perfume is finally arrived! Thank you so much to Luxasia Indonesia!

It’s in a black box wrapped in a beautifully tied ribbon, of course I opened it quickly, can’t wait to see the inside.. ^^

Kyaaaa… It’s here! Parlez Moi d’Amour perfume by John Galliano in real size! ^^ 

I even got this really nice letter, wow.. Open-mouthed smile

The back side of the box.. just like an envelope..

The bottle is so pretty, yes? ^^

So, when I open the cap like this…

I noticed there’s something engraved on the cap, it says:
and this is why I am writing to you my love

Even the top cap is cute.. ^^

The writing on the bottle is made by goldish ink, so classy..

And I love the stamp right here, it does feel like a love letter to me, awww.. ^^

I got the 80ml size, so happy!


Even the back of the bottle is shaped like an envelope, hehe!
Now I know you’re asking me, what does it smell like? What does it feel like?

So, ok, here are the notes..
Top notes: Blueberry, Ginger, Bergamot
Middle notes: Jasmine Sambac, Lavender, Turkish Rose
Base notes: Musk, Indonesian Patchouli, Cypress

What I usually do to test a perfume is I sniff the crown-top, and when I do this, I usually can tell whether I like the perfume or not. Please note that my personal preference is floral-fruity and I choose my fragrance based on the long lasting thought, which means I have to be able to wear it for a long time after. So I think about my choices real carefully.

On to the review…
When I sniff the crown top of this perfume, the first thing I noticed is the berry-ness that sparks out. It’s sweet.. There’s a hint of ginger in it, to add a lil bit of twist there.
The one that I got right here is the Eau de Toilette (EDT) and it lasts around 5-6 hours on my skin, I sprayed it on 5 PM and the scent faded out around 10-11 PM. The staying power is pretty good on me, considering I tend to sweat a lot, hehe..

After about 1 hour, I can smell the jasmine note starting to come out. And it feels light, not too strong. I remember the jasmine scent really well because my mother used to plant jasmine on the front yard when I was little, so I always sniffed it whenever I played around the garden.

I also recognized the rose notes, because it’s pretty obvious. It’s pretty strong and it brings character to it. I guess that’s what John Galliano meant about the rebel side of this fragrance, I can tell it’s edgy but still feminine.  For the lavender note, I think it blends well and it makes me calm and relaxed.
It’s a pretty bold choice to put 3 most popular notes in the heart / middle note of a perfume (Jasmine, Rose and Lavender), but I think this one can present it pretty well. It’s balanced and not overwhelming.

After around 3 hours or so, I can smell the base notes already.. I can feel the musk and patchouli is harmonized perfectly. All in all, I think this perfume really portraying a love-letter romance, I really love it.
By the way, my mom likes fragrances too, so maybe that’s why I have a sweet spot for good-smelling-stuff.. Anything that looks good and smells good, that’s it I’m falling for you.. (and that counts for food too, hehe) ^^

Alright then, that’s it for this post, you can check my complete post about the launching of the perfume in beauty blogger gathering with Luxasia Indonesia, here.

Now it’s time for me to have a date with my bed and pillow, they’re waiting for me, hehe..

Have the sweetest night sleep to you all! Bonne nuit, ma belle..

Good night, my lovelies.. ^^
