I should really name this review 'The Perfume You Should Buy Your Girlfriend This Valentine's Day'. Take a hint guys because I believe that almost any girl would absolutely adore this scent.
It's warm, it's sweet, it's like a cuddle in a bottle. When I've worn this perfume I've had compliments on it from both guys and girls so it's a winner all round. You'll love to smell it and she'll love to wear it and look at it on her vanity!
The bottle is super sleek and stylish. The design looks quite simple but is made unique by the curves and waves in the glass which give it an elegant shape. I really like the cute ribbon detailing too as I feel that it gives off that extra delicate and feminine feel. On the other hand I do find the lid to be slightly bizarre shaped - even a bit chunky for such a sleek bottle. But looking past that, the overall design of it is beautiful.
With regards to the scent itself, I have included the notes below for you to get a better feel for it yourself:
Top Notes - Black Current and Pear
Heart Notes - Iris, Jasmine and Orange Blossom
Base Notes - Patchouli, Tonka Bean, Vanilla and Praline
I know that notes can sometimes be misleading as I often feel like I can't pull out each scent mentioned. However, what I can relate to is someone suggesting a perfume when they like others I like. Some of my favourites are Valentina by Valentino, Miss Dior Cherie by Dior and Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel. Each of those fragrances are quite different. However it might be worth throwing it into the mix that if she likes those, she might like this one too!
