Packaging : It comes in transparent glass bottle with a regular spray nozzle. The beautiful lilac cover across the bottle carries all the details/ information. The mist itself is pale lilac in colour and looks very elegant through the glass bottle.

My views on the product : It has a very soft, velvety floral musk scent which makes it very feminine. It is suitable for everyday use as well as special occasions.  It opens with the notes of ylang-ylang, galbanum and basil and after 30 minutes it mellows down to middle notes of jasmine, rose and lily. Finally settling to the base notes of musk along with iris, amber, patchouli, peach and vanilla.

5-6 spritzes may be needed to achieve fullest fragrance and that is enough for the fragrance to last quite long. It starts with mild floral-fruity notes that fade away after a few hours. On me, it stays for around 4 hours and after that it settles down to a strong musky fragrance. Off late, I have been wearing it almost everyday. It is simple and lightweight, doesn’t overpower your olfactory senses. What I love most about it is the fact that its very balanced – not too sweet and not too masculine. A good mix of floral as well as muskier scents makes it a winner in my eyes. If you’re looking for a fragrance that you can wear to work/ office, definitely check this one out.

Pros:

  • Soft, velvety feminine fragrance.
  • Floral + fruity top notes and musky base notes.
  • Can be used on skin as well as clothes.
  • Sleek and elegant glass bottle packaging.
  • Easily available.

Cons:

  • Expensive.
  • Scent is very light & it doesn’t last very long
  • Glass bottle may enhance chances of breakage.

 

Verdict : A

Price : Rs. 1195 / 100ml.

Recommendation : As a big fan of mild floral fragrances, I love spraying it on. Longevity isn’t as great as other stronger counterparts. I would recommend it to anyone who likes light and refreshing mists or has any smell sensitivity issues – it is that mild. I would definitely try out the other sister musk fragrances in the future.
