Product Purchased by IMBB
I have developed a new addiction for perfumes. I picked a perfume from Elizabeth Arden at the airport duty-free shop recently. Today’s review is all about Elizabeth Arden Provocative Woman Eau de Parfum. Read on to know more.
Price and Quantity: $52.50 for 100ml
An intense fusion of tantalizing floral – oriental ingredients, this intoxicating fragrance brings a dynamic allure to a confident and seductive woman.
My Experience with Elizabeth Arden Provocative Woman Eau de Parfum Spray:
The perfume comes in a sealed packaging. The box holds the EDP perfectly. The box has beautiful hologram-like prints, which I like. There is not much information on the pack or the bottle. The EDP bottle is made of glass but feels lighter when compared to other perfume bottles. The bottle is curvy and is very attractive. The cap is made of plastic and closes with a click but, opening it is a little tricky as it is tight.
The silver mouth has a brown spray nozzle, and the combination is pretty nice. The spray pump dispenses the perfume over a smaller area, and the intensity is low, too. Also, when I use the perfume from a slightly longer distance, the spray head doesn’t work well so, you need to spray the perfume close to your skin. The EDP doesn’t cause any irritation on the skin.
As the name suggests, the EDP is exotic, very sensual and a perfect date night perfume. It is a floral-musky perfume. The Top notes include quince, water lotus, and ginger lily while the heart note is composed of midnight orchid, papaya blossom and pink freesia fragrances, and base notes are white sand notes, Hinoki wood and red amber. The perfume is a combination of floral and oriental fragrances and is intensive. The product can be a perfect choice for both day and night time, and the fragrance is mild and intimidating.
On application, the perfume smells very floral, but after 15-20 minutes, it intensifies and settles into a musky and amber perfume. However, the duration varies from person to person, and it depends on the body temperature and pH value. The lesser the body temperature, the longer the perfume stays. Even though it is an EDP, the perfume lasts for not more than 2-3 hours, and it completely fades away without leaving a little hint, and this goes the same even if I apply it on the temples. I mix it with my lotion for a long-lasting effect. The EDP can be used to create that initial first impression but, the fragrance doesn’t stay throughout the day.
As the base notes are musk and wood, this EDP works well for both men and women. My husband got more compliments from his friends when I sprayed this perfume on him 😛 However, the fragrance works well for matured women, and hence, it won’t suit young girls. The perfume can be used as an everyday fragrance as it is very pleasing and unique. The EDP is pretty expensive if you buy from beauty stores. I have seen the same perfume for lesser prices online but, I got it from a duty-free shop as I wanted to buy the original one, and even in Paris, I saw that the price was almost the same I paid. So, you need to be a bit careful on what you are buying. Overall, the perfume is good but, the duration is a bit disappointing!
