Testing: 5 days, 5 fragrances

Saturday, September 28, 2013

Hello again.
So this week I decided to wear different perfume each day, because I had so many perfume testers at home and I wasn't planning on using them for a while. I wanted to see what the fuss is about with some perfumes that are really popular and see which one I'd like the most. It was fun :) To keep it short, this post is only in english :)

(first line: R. Cavalli Acqua, YSL Manifesto, Giorgio Armani Acqua di GOIA,
second line: Just Cavalli, Guerlain: )

Day 1: YSL - Manifesto
"A bouquet of jasmine punctuated by green notes and bold trail combining wood, vanilla and tonka beans are the signature of this new declaration of femininity."
I heard a lot about this perfume and I was intrigued to try it. Here's what it contains:
Top notes: Black currant, bergamot, green notes
Middle notes: Lily-of-the-valley, Jasmine sambac
Base notes: Cedar, Sandalwood, Vanilla, Tonka bean

My opinion: It is kinda sweet at the start, but it's really feminine and I think I'm not old enough to wear it but it's still a really nice perfume. I would buy it in the future if they'd still sell it (I've got too much perfumes at the moment).
Longevity: lasts for a whole day (about 9-12 hrs on me)

Day 2: Roberto Cavalli - Acqua
"A sparkling floral fragrance: radient, fresh and luminous"
Another known fragrance.
Top notes: Jasmine, Watery notes, Lemon
Middle notes: Lily-of-the-valley
Base notes: Musk

My opinion: A very simple fragrance. At first it smelled like a perfume for an old lady, even my mom said it smells really bad. I really didn't like it at first, it was the most horiffic smell I've ever smelled. At the end of the day I liked it because it started to smell only fresh.
Longevity: 7-9 hrs

Day 3: Giorgio Armani - Acqua di Gioia
Perfume is compared with woman who is ''strong, dignified and free spirit but in perfect harmony with nature".
Top notes: Amalfi lemon, mint
Middle notes: Jasmine, pink pepper, peony
Base notes: French labdamun, Virginia cedar, sugar

My opinion: Smells really fresh, at the beginning you can smell the Jasmine. I'd recommend it to people who like fresh scents, and also in the summer it would be a really nice smell.
Longevity: 3-5 hrs (it wore off of me quickly)

Day 4: Guerlain - La petite robe noire
"A fresh and romantic floral lace embroided with sparkling fruity notes."
Top notes: Bergamot, sour cherry, almond, red berries
Middle notes: rose, tea, talf rose, licorice
Base notes: anice, tonka bean, vanilly, patchouli, iris

My opinion: It smells kinda fresh to me at the first, but then it's really fruity and sexy and sweet. I definitely recommend for you to try it somewhere because it's a really nice, sexy smell :)
Longevity: 9-12 hrs (it smelled nice the whole day)

Day 5: Roberto Cavalli - Just Cavalli
"A creamy sexy floral: dazzling, magnetic and seductive".
Top notes: Neroli
Middle notes: Tahitian tiare flower
Base notes: Palisander rosewood

My opinion: Another simple fragrance by Roberto Cavalli. It smells really floral, which I don't like particularly , but for the floral scent lovers I'd definitely recommend it. It is sexy, but not like some other fragrances.
Longevity: 5-7 hrs

Do you own any of these perfumes? Which one do you like the most ? :)
Love and Lemons, Simona
