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:
The enchanting charm of Black Rose and Night-Blooming Jasmine mingle with the sensuality of Patchouli leaves, bringing intensity and depth to the scent. Release your inner, velvet-voiced seductress.
PRICE: Rs. 2190 is the original price, on flyer, I got it for Rs. 552.
I found a slight variation in the key ingredients listed on the website with that mentioned on the cover, anyway, here’s both:

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.
