Product Review: Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense

Viktor and Rolf BONBON COUTURE Image

I am a big fan of Deutsch brand – Viktor and Rolf. I have used a few of the brand’s perfumes and I am currently hooked on all of them. I reviewed the Bonbon by Viktor and Rolf some months ago, and I raved about how much I was in love with it. So you can imagine the joy when this Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense dropped on my doorstep. I was over the moon with excitement.

This Viktor & Rolf Bonbon Couture is all I thought it would be and more; it is a more intense interpretation of the original Bonbon fragrance. Viktor & Rolf have described this new fragrance as the new evolution of the original haute confection fragrance, drawing inspiration from the provocative masterpieces, glamour and elegance of their Haute Couture collections.

Top notes: mandarin, neroli, peach
Heart: orange blossom, sambac jasmine, caramel
Base: sandalwood, patchouli, vanilla, white tobacco

Here are my thoughts on the Bonbon Couture –

  1. I adore the design of the bottle, I think it is really pretty. It is quite similar to the original Bonbon bottle but this bottle is a darker shade of pink with a lighter, matte bow.
  2. I am in love with the fragance. It is similar to the original Bonbon fragrance but this is more intense and more luxurious.
  3. It is a long-lasting fragance, it stayed on all day, and I didn’t have to re-apply.

CONS

None.

The Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense is an amazing fragrance. I am looking forward to using this fragrance this autumn/winter. I recommend this perfume to any woman in need of a strong fragrance this season, or if you feel like spoiling yourself, the Viktor and Rolf Bonbon Couture Eau de Parfum Intense is the way to go.

This fragrance will be available at Selfridges from 14th September. The prices are – £57 for a 30ml bottle, £79 for a 50ml bottle and £109 for a 90ml bottle.

 

What do you think of this fragrance? Have you used any Viktor & Rolf perfume before?

Product Review: Dolce & Gabbana rose the one

Dolce and Gabbana The One Image

 

I am so obsessed with perfumes. I love smelling good, and like to have a few good fragrances around at a time. I have been using this Dolce & Gabbana rose the one eau de parfum for months now, and I think it is a great fragrance to have. Prior to using this perfume, I used the original Dolce & Gabbana the one eau de parfum and I liked that as well, so I wasn’t too surprised at how good ‘rose the one’ was.

Here is what the brand has to say about this perfume:

Rose The One is a breath-taking realization of a contemporary feminine floral and a deftly sensual paean to the eternal romance of the rose. The scent is exhilarating and bursting with joie de vivre without surrendering any of the one’s famously seductive magnetism. Unfettered by convention, she is unafraid of everything, her own emotions not least. Warm, open, yet maintaining a certain mystery.

 

Here are my thoughts on this perfume:

PROS

  1. It is a sweet-smelling, light, feminine scent. Great for day or night.
  2. This fragrance is long-lasting, it stays on all day.
  3. I love the elegant bottle. It looks amazing on my dressing table.
  4. A 50ml bottle goes for £62. Some may see that as pricey, but I see it as money well spent.

CONS

None.

I love everything about Dolce & Gabbana rose the one. It smells amazing and stays on all day. What more could a girl ask for?

I recommend this perfume to anyone in need of a day and night fragrance. If you love the classic rose fragrance, you will adore this perfume. It is worth every penny.

You can grab a bottle here.

Product Review – Jimmy Choo Illicit Perfume*

If you have been reading Fashion and Style Police for a while, you will know how much I love perfumes. I use to be a perfume hoarder freak, with over 10 bottles at a time, until I went into recovery, lol. I am a lot better now, and quite happy with only 5 bottles at a time.

Jimmy Choo wowed me with the previous Jimmy Choo perfume. So I was very happy to receive this Illicit perfume by Jimmy Choo as a gift last Christmas.

The Jimmy Choo Illicit perfume was released August 2015. It comes in a 40, 60 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. I have a bit to say about it, but before I dive into the review, here is what Jimmy Choo has to say about this perfume:

The Illicit perfume is designed for women who are tempting, seductive, risk-taking and totally in control. This fragrance embodies the daring spirit of a woman who is hypnotic, attractive and living life to the fullest. It is a modern floral, created by the perfumer; Anne Filpo. It starts with frizzy notes leading to the floral heart and the warm, honey-amber base. Ginger and bitter orange open the composition. The heart consists of rose and jasmine sambac, laid on the base of honey-amber accord and sandalwood.

“ILLICIT embodies the daring spirit of the Jimmy Choo woman. She is alluring, hypnotic and lives her life to the full.”
– Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo.

Here are my thoughts on this perfume:

PROS

  1. It is a light, feminine, sensual fragrance, which I love. It is soft enough for day time wear, and great to rock in the summer season.
  2. It is long-lasting. It stays on for a few hours.
  3. I love the design of the bottle. It is simple but so chic.
  4. I like the fact that it comes in various sizes – 40, 60 & 100ml, hence various prices. A 40ml bottle goes for £42, 60ml goes for £54 and a 100ml goes for £78.
  5. This fragrance is readily available online and in many other departmental stores.

CONS

  1. I wish the fragrance stays on longer. It disappears after a couple of hours.

Overall, I love this fragrance. I think it is fab, and I will definitely use it again. I recommend it to any perfume lover looking for a light fragrance to use this summer.
