I recently purchased 2 fragrances of Collistar Aromatic Body Water. I have already reviewed Collistar Aromatic Body Water Dei Sogni. Today’s review is about Collistar Aromatic Body Water Profumo della Felicita. This fragrance was launched in 2011.
Price: €46 or Rs.3350 for 100ml
Happiness is a tiny precious moment of total and gratifying wellbeing that is absolutely unique, just like every woman. To these emotions and sensations Collistar dedicates Profumo della Felicità, Aromatic Water for the Body, an ode to the joy of living and to femininity in all its radiance and resonance. The initial bracing notes of grapefruit and mandarin blend with the sweetness of lotus flower, the velvety tones of peony and the brightness of pink pepper and red currant. The base, all-enveloping like an embrace, features the seductive notes of osmanthus and the refined scents of vetiver and musk. This magical fragrance also has a softening and toning effect, thanks to the addition of orange blossom and passion fruit. Profumo della Felicità is lively and joyful, enriched with exhilarating essential oils and Mediterranean extracts that make it a true beauty treatment for the body and therapeutic treatment for the spirit.
My Experience with Collistar Aromatic Body Water Profumo della Felicita:
Packaging: It comes in a well-padded cardboard box so that the perfume bottle does not get damaged. The cardboard box has a range of bright colors which, to me, represents summer and fun. The perfume bottle is a beautiful tall cylinder made of glass. The glass bottle is transparent and so is the cap. One can see the amount of product remaining or used, which I find helpful. The cap opens and closes tightly. The perfume is golden yellow in color. This perfume is a total summer day fragrance. The packaging and the perfume itself are very bright and summery kind.
As soon as you spray this perfume, you can smell the notes of citrus and velvety heart. I, being a fan of citrus, could feel the citrus fragrance embrace me and this slightly strong fragrance surrounded me. The citrus fragrance is due to the notes of grapefruit and mandarin, blended with lotus flower, velvety tones of peony and brightness of pink pepper and red currant. One can also smell the musk in it. Not everyone prefers musk. Many feel that it is a fragrance for men, but I personally like musk and was pleased by the presence of it.
After the first few hours, the base notes started to bloom. The base notes are very soft and sweet. I would say, overall, the perfume feels very Mediterranean due to its ingredients. I was not a fan of Mediterranean, a few years back. But now, over time, I have started to like it. I feel my taste has changed as I grew. So, it’s definitely for women and not teenagers. I feel very feminine when I wear this and love wearing it mostly during weekends when I am out in the sun.
The staying power is quite good. It stays on for around 5 hours and then starts to fade. I apply 5 to 6 sprays in total at different points.
Overall, it’s a sensual, fruity-floral fragrance which is strong but not the kind that bothers others.
Pros of Collistar Aromatic Body Water Profumo della Felicita:
• Nice tall bottle
• Good staying power
• Perfect summer perfume
• Very feminine and lady-like
• Lovely blend of fruity-floral
Cons of Collistar Aromatic Body Water Profumo della Felicita:
• Since it’s a glass bottle, it’s heavy and risky to travel with
• Not for people who do not prefer citrus notes
• Slightly expensive for body water
IMBB Rating: 4/5
Would I Recommend Collistar Aromatic Body Water Profumo della Felicita?
I am very picky about fragrances, and I love this one. Fragrances are a personal choice but if you like citrus notes, then you may tend to like this.
