Can you believe that I’ve never actually owned a Narciso Rodriguez fragrance?! My Mum and my best friend both wear the original one, so it’s always been a favourite, but one that I’ve not worn because it was their signature scent. Everything about these fragrances says ‘feminine and romance’ to me – from the beautiful milky glass bottles, the simplicity, the soft colours and of course the beautiful notes that are used which I will chat about in a bit. The good news for me was that there is a new Narciso Rodriguez scent that has just hit the shelves – so one that I can now wear!
For those of you who haven’t smelt the original Narciso Rodriguez For Her it really is quite a statement scent and one that seems to be a lot of girls favourite. It definitely isn’t going to be that scent that would go unnoticed. However, for those of you that find this scent too heavy – or even for the girls who already wear the original and possibly find it too heavy going for day use, then their latest launch is for you: it’s Narciso Rodriguez L’Eau for Her and I think you’re going to love it! I love what has been done with this scent as it isn’t that far removed from the original that we all know and love – it’s this same scent with some new additions that soften the fragrance making it a lot more wearable, playful and youthful in my opinion.
The fragrance is made up of jasmine, cyclamen and sparkling pink peony, with rose, amber and frozen lily of the valley. The base includes musk and chypre accords of patchouli – you can only imagine how incredible this smell!
