If there’s one perfume thats captured my heart this autumn its the Narciso Poudrée fragrance by Narciso Rodriguez which has been my go-to evening scent for the last month. I just can’t get enough of it!
There’s an air of mystery surrounding this perfume and its that which seems to draw me in. It is sensual and decadent, yet gentle and feminine in equal proportions which makes it the perfect scent for wearing on evenings out, perhaps for a date night. However saying that, it isn’t too heavy that you couldn’t wear it during the daytime either; I certainly do.
Narciso Poudrée enjoys floral top notes of Bulgarian Rose and White Jasmine, a Powdery Musk heart from which the scent takes its name and a base of Vetiver and Black Cedar base.
When I’m choosing a new fragrance, I always tend to look for the ones that have musk in them as generally they’ll be a scent that I’ll enjoy however I can’t recall using a perfume with more of a powdery musk before and the effect is beautiful. It adds quite a warming and comforting feel to the fragrance.
As an eau de parfum, the scent is long lasting on the skin so I tend to simply spritz over myself in the morning and I can still smell it when I return home in the afternoon. Smelling good is really important to me so longevity is definitely something that I look for in a scent.
While packaging isn’t everything, it is really important to me, as if I am spending a lot of money on a scent, I want it to look luxe too. The packaging of Narciso Poudrée is absolutely stunning with its creamy nude bottle; I think anyone would be proud to display it on their dressing table.
This perfume is available in three different bottle sizes; 30ml, 50ml and 100ml, as well as a gift set which I think is perfect with Christmas coming up. Inside the box is a bottle of the fragrance, along with a body lotion to layer up the scent to make it last longer and a makeup pouch which could be used as a clutch over the festive period. It would make a beautiful gift for a woman this Christmas as it is a scent that I think so many people will enjoy.
The great thing about Narciso Poudrée is that it has just launched this year so it will still be new to a lot of people. Receiving a fragrance that’s new to the market is always that little bit more special in my eyes!
