Oriflame Enigma Eau De Toilette Review

I have been eying Enigma EDT since the time my local oriflame consultant sprayed a generous amount on to my wrist and I remember the scent had stayed for a pretty long time. But the only thing that was holding me back for such a long time was the price. Enigma EDT’s original cost is Rs. 2190 and though on offer, it does fluctuate a bit, it has never come down below 1000. When it came in the flyer, I got it for Rs. 552.

This is How the Catalogue Describes Oriflame Enigma eau De Toilette:

My Take on Oriflame Enigma Eau De Toilette:
When it came, I was quite impressed by the glistening packaging. The EDT bottle has an unique, distinct, and attractive shape and the cap is a little longer than the bottom bottle. I don’t really know how to define the shape, bad at it. Coming to the perfume, it’s a rich, heavy, intense, shrouding, and enchanting perfume. The perfume itself seems to have so many notes, all intermingled with each other in a way that it’s difficult to tell them apart. There seems to be a lot of drama going on, all on a high plane. The perfume stays on for a very long time without showing any signs of withering. I should also mention that this is a night-time perfume because it seems to be dark, heavy, and intense. This is a perfume and scent befitting a lady, who is mature and knows her mind. Though, it smells a little out of place on me; it goes on well on my mom. I don’t think it is summery or a perfume which can be worn to office. It will be the perfect choice if you were to attend a marriage or a candle-lit dinner. Actually, this is a perfume that I usually wear when I want to play the seductress.
Pros of Oriflame Enigma Eau De Toilette:
• The perfume comes in a distinct, unique, and attractive packaging.
• There are many fragrances notes in this perfume which are all intermingled with each other, which gives the perfume its mystery and enigma quotient.
• This is a night-time perfume because it is intense, dark, and concentrated.
• The scent stays on for quite a long time without withering away.
• This is a scent for a mature lady who knows her mind.
• Apt to be worn on occasions such as evening parties, weddings, dinners, concerts, etc.

Cons of Oriflame Enigma Eau De Toilette:
• Since this is a heavy, shrouding, and concentrated perfume, it will be not apt for daytime or office use.
• It’s not a girly perfume.
• High price.
• It does not suit me as much as it suits my mom.
WILL I BUY IT AGAIN: Not at its original price; if it comes at the price of Rs. 552, then yes.
IMBB STAR RATING: 3.5/5.-1.5 for being entirely a night-time perfume and for the high drama of the heavy notes.

  1. he he he..now Rati and Sanjeev also know that Jomol wakes up early maarning..hence her post the first thing of the day!! 😀 😀

    But where is she? I think she gone back to her after-breakfast nap!!!

    1. I wonder what she does waking up early morning. She is not ‘going for a walk’ types. Neither is she doing pooja wooja types. She must be watching early morning news channels… or taking out all the jewelry from the boxes, gloating over them for a while and putting them back. :quiet: :quiet: :quiet:

      1. Sanjeevjiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiijiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiii :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :spank: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: :hunterwali: watching news early morning is correct…that too Doordarshan wala….and know your MP programmes etc…..but I dont take my jewellery out every morning :spank: :spank: :spank: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

        I just get up early and watch news, and then I feel hungry, and cook breakfast and think about what to cook for lunch….. 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

    1. ha jomol, which flyer? you know, reading so many good reviews from you about oriflame products, i desparately wanted to try them… but could never find a consultant neearby…
      so i became a consultant myself… :makeup: :makeup: :makeup:
      now every month i but loads of oriflame stuffs (actually the catalogue is so tempting na, i end up buying a lot many things than i need :shying: )

      1. Gini…same pinch…every month I think I won’t buy any thing, but the catalogue is too tempting…but this month tho strictly I didn’t buy any oriflame O:)

        1. hey jomol..this month i too didnt buy anything…honestly didnt find any offers tempting enough :huh: but now i m eyeing amway products..especially artistry polishing scrub and kohl..both were reviewed here and seem to be fab :yahoo:

      1. he he jomol … i would like to phrase as “up till now in this month” i have not bought anything from this months catalogue… :jiggy2:
        today si only 17th na… i have a good 13 days to change my mind :specs: … which flipping through the pages God knows what happens to me, i suddenly feel i just cannot survive without half of the things in the catalogue :headbang: :headbang: :headbang:

        1. Gini…………………kya tumhare left hand par trishul ka sign hai kya….. 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐 😐

            1. no trishul in left hand… phir bhi we think similar Jomol…
              kyoon batao?
              Gini is a bengali word which means Gold Coins (the ones that were used in earlier times to trade na)…
              so maybe this proves why we think similar :specs: :specs: :specs:
