So in 2016 I was in Sydney with my Husband walking down the Pitt Street with a baby cooking inside me( i guess i was in my second trimester). And I get a waft of an absolutely stunning extremely seductive scent. I kept sniffing like a dog as much as I could.
A few blocks later we entered the Priceline pharmacy and there I was caught by the same scent and upon enquiry I got to know it was “Narciso Rodrigues For Her”‘.
And since then I am a huge fan of this Designer House.
They are known for using the “Musk” in the most wicked way.
I love the fact that the designer kept the product packaging fairly simple and minimal and let the perfume spark.
All the Narciso line of perfumes has same bottle design with varied colours.
Narciso Poudree is the second perfume released. There are total six or seven flankers in this line.
Recently the designer house released the latest addition to the line . I am hope that I get to test it soon.
The idea of keeping all the bottles colour coded is so much fun.
Only drawback the bottles are quite bulky and cant be carried in handbags. Though these perfumes are quite potent and doesn’t require frequent reapplication .
Perfume bottle itself is kept very simple with just Narciso written on it.
While the box consists all the information.
As per the Narciso Rodriguez official website this perfume is described as embodiment of mercurial power. Musk is refined which reveals voluptuous sensuality .Flowers used is Jasmine , Bulgarian Rose with signature woody notes of vetiver and black and white cedars.
Perfumes can be confidence booster. Apparently around 97 % respondents feel more confident when wearing fragrance.
It literally reminds me of Narciso Rouge dried down version.
Extremly long lasting
6 plus hours on skin on pulse points.
It definitely has that famous Musk note prominently making its presence through out. And the white flowers turns out more and more softer and powdery.
Quite a potent one. Very very sophisticated .
It is a very mature scent so someone in early 30 can full this off really well.
It the best office wear perfume. Very inoffensive and very much apt for a formal setup.
I feel this is one of the most formal and discrete among all the other Narciso. You can wear it to a formal event .It has a very old times vibe to it but it doesn’t smell dated fortunately.
For me it took a while to grow on me. I love unconventional scents. This is quite safe very unlike Narciso Rodriquez fragrances. But it has grown on me.
And now when the whole world mostly operates from house I think it is perfect time to treat yourself with good fragrance. It does make a positive shift in the mood.
Perfume stays longer on a well moisturized skin.
I hope you are staying safe and taking every precautionary steps to keep yourself and your family safe from covid19.
These are difficult time but hang in there. This time shall pass too.
Till then try new fragrances. And comment below if you have tried Narciso Poudree and if yes what are your thoughts on it.
