Hello my lovelies!
In keeping with the anticipation of spring's arrival, I thought I would post my views on this floral and springy Korres perfume. Oh and please, be patient with my description- I tried my best!
A little note: Is it just me or are all Korres fragrances not the "easiest smelling" of the market? For me, an "easy smelling" perfume stands for a familiar-ish composition of fragrance notes that you can instantly tell if you love/hate it. After testing them out at the store, I found myself constantly sniffing at my wrists to see whether they would fit my style or not.
The men's perfume with the saffron was the "easiest smelling" of the three, it didn't take me much time to find that I love it- now so does my boyfriend that I got him as a gift ;)
The so-called "unisex" perfume with jasmine and pepper... well I didn't like it, but the funny thing is that I couldn't figure out why; was it the jasmine? the pepper? It felt as if it changed its composition with every sniff! Too strange for my nose... Even its gorgeous packaging didn't make me more sympathetic- and this comes from a big-time sucker of fancy packaging!
This women's perfume is not an "easy" smell, too. When you spray it, initially it smells of alcohol. When that goes away, the fruity and fresh black-currant scent takes over, mixed with a little of cyclamen and the tiniest hint of rosewood. The latter dominates the composition 5-10 minutes after the application, but not in a heavy manner because of the "freshness" of the rest of the scents.
I have to confess that what I enjoyed the most (after a lot of spritzes!) was the fact that my nose could trace all three main scents inscribed on the bottle. As with other perfumes, I'm usually bombardised with a dozen of top-notes and an equal amount of middle- and base-notes, while not identifying a single scent! This Korres perfume made me ever so confident, I was secretly boasting to myself that "hey, I could become a perfume connoiseur" :D
Overall, I like it a lot. I'm wearing it a lot. But it didn't make me lose my mind over it like Shiseido Zen has done in the past... So if you're interested in smelling it, you've been warned- it takes some time to love it! If you are familiar with this fragrance, please let me know what you think about it ;)
Happy blogging and reading and commenting to everyone!
