My Review of Narciso by Narciso Rodriguez
Narciso reminds me of many different fragrances in its various stages of development. The beautiful opening has the same vibe as that of My Burberry, the ethereal Gardenia, very creamy and sensual. It is the kinds which makes you sigh, ahhh this is beautiful. If you like Gardenia, the opening itself will make you loosen those purse strings!!!
The heart, reminds me of yet another timeless classic, Thierry Mugler Alien!! So sweet and creamy, delicious enough to make me wanna keep sniffing my wrist. The projection is amazing, with someone saying how they could smell me from the staircase itself!!! And it was just 2 light sprays on my wrist. It also has something similar to Givenchy Very Irresistible Sensual, though there are hardly any common notes between the two.
The base, again reminds me of a beautiful fragrance, and this time it is Burberry London, the same sweet, woody and powdery feeling. Narciso and London are practically indistinguishable on me at this stage. Narciso smells like a fairy tale, so beautiful, and with all things beautiful. It evolves continuously, and changes so much to resemble different perfumes in every stage.
Overall, Narciso for her is a very classy perfume, one that gives you the pleasure of owning so many different bottles all at the same time!!! The beautiful milky cube flacon is an added benefit to make you fall for it. Longevity and sillage are very good, a big improvement over Narciso Rodriguez for her, and is a year round kind of perfume, suitable any time, be day or night, summers or winters. My compliments Narciso Rodriguez.
Will i recommend it? Yes, a big yes!!
Price is INR 6100 for the big bottle.
PS: after writing this, a went through a few other reviews, and for everyone it is similar to one or the other fragrance, ranging from J’adore, Bottega Veneta Edp, DKNY Pure, Agent Provocateur, Givenchy Very Irresistible Sensual, Gucci Rush 1, L’heure Bleue to name a few!!! This is like a ghost fragrance!!
