It’s been a long time since my last review and I have been quite busy with things, plus with some ongoing illnesses with myself and family, I couldn’t think of much. I kept following IMBB regularly though, as I always do, just couldn’t contribute much! Anyhow, today I bring to you a perfume review. Earlier I used deos and roll-ons and the only proper scent I had was “Elizabeth Arden’s Red Door” with the red cap, which I had taken from mum because she doesn’t use perfumes. I loved it but wanted a change, so I tried finding some floral scents online and decided on this one. I will start with the review now.
I got it for Rs. 1500 online (100 ml), at half off. It is available on discounts often.
It was difficult to take pictures because the box is so reflective, but I have tried my best!
I am not find of the outer box that it comes with since it is so reflective, but I kind of like the bottle, it looks like a woman with a crown and has a sort of feminine feel to it and aptly justifies the name of the perfume. But I am afraid that it might topple easily if care is not taken. I like the color of the perfume in the bottle too.
This is a modern light floral with fruity and woody nuances. The intense floral opening includes jasmine, wild rose, frangipani leaves and bergamot. The powerful and strong heart note is composed lotus, plum, raspberry and Lebanese blue cedar. The mesmerizing end note is composed of musk, grey amber and Inoki wood.
My Take on Versace Woman Eau de Parfum:
This perfume isn’t nearly as well known as other perfumes form Versace, so I felt like trying this out. As for me, I have been using it for a few months now and I have finally decided on how I feel about it. I don’t like purchasing perfumes online, but I had to, since I was not going shopping and I needed one. So when it arrived, the smell that I got from the outside of the bottle felt really fresh and floral, but as soon as I spritzed it onto my wrist, it was overwhelmingly sweet and I wanted to just be away from the smell. I hate strong smells. They give me a headache. Although Red Door (which I previously used) was strong, it was never overwhelming at all, it smelled elegant, and everyone loved it on me.
It settled down in a while and then the true base notes emerged which smell great on me. They are subtle, not overpowering, not sickly sweet, slightly powdery floral with some hints of woody notes which I like the best.
It does not stay on me that long, at most 8 hours or so. Red Door stays on me for days. This is a good day perfume; I could wear it at night but I want something not too floral for nights. Overall, I think it’s good, but I should stick to my older favourites or at least try it in a store before buying. Honestly, if I had tried it, I am not sure I would have bought this one.
Pros of Versace Woman Eau de Parfum:
- Packaging is feminine and unique.
- Nice day time fragrance and can be worn to romantic occasions.
- Great for people who love feminine, floral scents.
- Available at discounts and across many stores too.
- Very affordable for an Eau de Parfum and for quantity.
- It lasts for a decent amount of time.
- The base notes smell great when it settles down.
- Since it is quite uncommon, you can feel good about being part of the rare few who own it!
Cons of Versace Woman Eau de Parfum:
- It can be a hit or a miss, sometimes overpowering, sometimes subtle.
- Outer packaging is not that good.
This will work very differently for different people, and how it reacts with their chemistry, but I suggest trying it out before you buy it. I like it but it won’t turn any heads, so I will not consider repurchasing. This bottle is huge anyway. I give it 3.8 stars out of 5, purely for how it smells on me.
