Fragrance Friday is back! As you may have noticed it went a little MIA recently and of course I take full responsibility (it didn't dun away on its own:P) Anyway, I have still got a few perfumes in my collection that I want to review, so I'll try to keep up with these posts until I run out!
This week I will be reviewing...
212 VIP by Carolina Herrera
Now I know I always say this, but I think this may just be my favourite (aside from Ricci Ricci by Nina Ricci which has almost run out!*sad face*) I have had this for just over a year now and it is just so scrumdiddlyumptious!
For me this gets a HUGE thumbs up. It is really glamorous yet very simple and chic. The box matches the bottle nicely too with lovely gold detailing. The bottle is heavy and of very nice quality with a magnetic clasp (which my inner nerd and scientist loves! So satisfying when it clicks shut :') It just looks really beautiful sat on my mantelpiece.
This retails at £46 for 50ml but is currently on sale here. Now this is rather pricey for a perfume, but when you take into account the beautiful design of the bottle and the fact it is an Eau de Parfum it makes it seem slightly more reasonable. I personally don't mind the price as I have only used half of it in a year. It also lasts all day on my skin.
Now I would describe this as more of an evening scent as it is quite heavily scented (yet not overpowering.) It is a very musky Vanilla scent with hints of Jasmin. So its very sweet but not at all sickly. On the The Perfume Shop website it is described as 'Oriental Vanilla' which I think sums it up perfectly.
Overall this is a lovely warm perfume perfect for evenings and special occasions. It isn't cheap but you get what you pay for and it lasts a long time.
If you haven't entered my giveaway yet you can do so here.
