For some unknown reason Narciso Rodriguez has completely by passed my life and I have never even smelt one of their fragrances until recently. My lovely friend Samantha asked me to pick a bottle up for her whilst on my travels, so I took the opportunity to see why she raved about it so much. The original Narciso Rodriguez Narciso hit my senses in all the right places, and the floral woody scent won me over. As you know, Fragrance Direct website is my first port of call when it comes to getting discounted fragrances so when I saw the new Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree EDP, I just had to have it.
The Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree EDP is the newest launch from Narciso Rodriguez and it takes the original scent but blends it with a more velvety and sensual blend. I wouldn’t usually go for what would be deemed as a powdery scent as the name suggests but there is something almost addictive about the blending of the notes. It’s grown up yet playful, and sensuous yet delicate. It really is a fragrance that you need to try first, to see just how beautiful it is.
The flacon is a delicate blush pink stone designed to mimic the flush of skin,, whilst still in keeping with the previous versions of Narciso. It’s a beautiful bottle and is really befitting to what’s inside. The fragrance opens up with top notes of with the floral tones of Bulgarian Rose and white jasmine, with a heart of powdery musk. It settles on the skin with base notes of vetiver and black and white cedar. The deepness of the woody notes is beautiful on my skin, and I get a hint of patchouli on the dry down.
The Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Poudree EDP comes with a free 10ml bottle of the fragrance when purchased from Fragrance Direct which has swiftly made it’s way into my handbag, and has since received a lot of compliments off my friends and colleagues. When I wear Narciso Poudree, it makes me feel feminine yet sensual at the same time and it really has a certain magic surrounding it. I adore it, and I’m so glad that I chose this to start my Narciso journey. In terms of longevity, it lasts around 5 hours on myself and I can still smell it the day after on the clothes that I have been wearing.
If you are looking for a new fragrance, especially one that’s housed in a bottle as beautiful as this, then I recommend heading over to Fragrance Direct to find the newest fragrances with savings on the recommended retail price.
