Review | Versace Woman Eau de Parfum

I will always remember my first bottle of 'grown up' perfume. I had outgrown the Charlie Red Body Spray, I had had enough of the Mary-Kate and Ashley EDT, it was time for me to get a 'real' perfume. Although perhaps Versace Red Jeans was a mistake. My Mum bought it for me as she thought I would like it and wow, was she wrong. So sweet. So sickly! I remember spraying it all over my body and it was so sweet that I had to have a lie down, thus potentially ruining my Christmas Day '07. Needless to say the bottle didn't see much sunlight from the tin it came in after that.

I had steered clear of Versace perfumes and fragrances for a good few years, until I recently smelt a scent on someone which smelt so beautiful, I had to ask what it was and no surprises, it comes from Versace. Let's call the Versace Woman Eau de Parfum Red Jeans' older, more sophisticated sister.

About the Versace Woman Eau de Parfum:
"Versace Woman is for woman who has individuality, intelligence and inner confidence. A floral-fruit fragrance with top notes of frangipani blossoms, jasmine, bergamot, eglantine flower; middle notes of padpardscha lotus, prune, raspberry and base notes of lebanon, amber, musk and inoki wood."

The Versace Woman Eau de Parfum is a really light, sweet perfume which instantly reminded me of Versace Red Jeans. Because of this, I like to think Versace Woman is Red Jeans' older, more sophisticated sister. I don't usually like sweet scents as I am much more of a cotton, light and floral sort of girl but I can definitely get on board with them if they were all like this. Don't get me wrong, I won't be rushing out to purchase another bottle of Red Jeans, the perfume that nearly made me pass out it was so god-damn overpowering but I am definitely willing to try more sweeter perfumes rather than ignore them completely like usual.

Versace Woman initially smells quite woody but then after a little while you get sweeter smelling notes coming across, with the raspberry, amber and musk quite prominent. When sprayed onto the skin and left a little while, I find the woodiness to fade away, leaving behind the sweeter notes. It is a really beautiful, sweet but fresh fragrance which isn't overpowering but it still holds its longevity. If I apply this perfume in the morning, I can still smell it well into the late afternoon. I love finding and trying new perfumes upon recommendation from others so this is me, telling you that you should definitely try this perfume the next time you are in a department store.
