Naturally, and of course, as a man I am, I do not use this wonderful fragrance. However, this review is a something that my wife wrote, and I wish to publish on my blog for her. And, as last resort, I want to talk about it because I bought and gifted in her. She loved at once she tested it.

This perfume is so nice that you will always be getting asked what perfume you are wearing, not because it is over powering, or you have put too much on you, but for the instant attraction that you will create. So, be very carefully where you are wearing it. Both men and women just seem to like the smell, so you will be getting compliments of this cause, and you will want to keep wearing this perfume forever. She has been converted this fragrance in her every night perfume and I think, believe it or not; the price is worth every cent.

When she started to use this fragrance the only thing, she would say, as an objection, was she wished that I had bought another one in smaller size for her handbag.

Which are the main characteristics?

One of the main characteristics is the deep and intense sensation that gets sublimate the sensuality of the fragrance and in this way it gets to skyrocket your sensuality up to the maximum level. Another characteristic is at the beginning is fruity and aromatic and at the end is sweet and spicy. However, the character, as a whole, is completely voluptuous and flowery.
The overtly sensual side of this Yves Saint Laurent perfume masterpiece is less assertive in the EDT than in the EDP, but just a little bit. The opulent, decadent character is immediately apparent from the immediate swoon of mandarin and bergamot notes, totally deepened by myrrh, jasmine and carnation. Finally, amber unlocks the last note, and the heart of the woman who wears it.

How is the presentation?
The product came in three different options: 1.0, 1.6 and 3.0 ounces, but all of them with the same shape of the bottle.

Is there any inconvenience?

The main inconvenience that I found to this fragrance, from my point of sight, is the complete addiction to it. For sure, once you buy and start to use it, you never will stop of using it or, in this case, to buy it, in a way that, I think, the manufacturer should add a warning on the box preventing this fact. Now you have my advice about this small inconvenient. Another inconvenience that many people found is a poor design of the top sprayer, which constantly comes off from its place.

Fortunately, for me, my wife has other options that I will be showing to you, as soon as she gives me her thoughts about them; in the meantime I hope everybody will enjoy this perfume as much as we do. Finally, I wish to know what do you think about this product or which one is/are your favorite(s) perfume. Do not be shy, let me know, and we will continue in another review.


  1. I like what you have here! May I make a suggestion? When you review a product like this (or your wife does :-) ) include an affiliate link to that product so readers have an opportunity to purchase it!

    It is a win-win - they can easily have access to the product without having to search, and you can get a commission.

    Be warned... Blogspot might not allow that to happen. Make sure you know if you can do that first, otherwise you might get shut down.

    Be Well.
