DOT by Marc Jacobs

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 20/12/2012

marc-jacobs-dot-perfume-advertisement

Today we are looking at DOT by Marc Jacobs.

You will have probably noticed this perfume in the shops from the design of the bottle – it looks a lot like a ladybird and is most probably inspired by Marc Jacobs’ love for everything polka dot.

In our opinion, DOT is an instant hit which opens up with top notes of Red Berries, Dragon Fruit and Honeysuckle.  When this perfume has dried you will find a sweet floral scent coming through which is enhanced by the middle notes of Jasmine, Orange Blossom and Coconut Water.  The base notes are made up from Vanilla, Musk and Driftwood.

marc-jacobs-dot-perfume-bottleDOT is an ‘Eau De Parfum‘ which will last on average about five hours from what we have found; in that time you can expect all of the different notes to shine through and for you to smell sweet and floral without offending anyone with an overly powerful perfume.

This is a great fragrance for all of the floral perfume fans out there – it is also ranking as one of the Top 10 Best Sellers in the UK this Christmas.

DOT is ideal for the young woman who wants to feel confident and sexy about herself without having to spend huge amounts of money on more expensive perfumes, but still wants something that will last as long, have the same amount of quality and smell just as good.

DOT by Marc Jacobs would make an excellent gift for a loved one this Christmas.

ROBERTO CAVALLI by ROBERTO CAVALLI

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 17/12/2012

roberto-cavalli-perfume-advertisement

We’ll start by giving a very brief introduction to Roberto Cavalli; who he is, what he does and why his brand has one of the most popular perfumes around.

Roberto Cavalli is an Italian fashion designer who is perhaps best-known for his creation of the sand-blasted look on practically all denim jeans nowadays. This was simply something Cavalli put out as part of his range which caught on and still continues to be the standard to this day; therefore it is easy to see how this man can create a self-titled perfume which will capture people’s attention.

It is another thing however, to create a perfume which not only challenges some of today’s biggest brands, but also makes it in to the Top 10 list of the most sought after fragrances for women in Europe.

roberto-cavalli-perfume-bottleRoberto Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli was released in this year (2012) and does an amazing job of capturing the attention of those who are around the wearer. With top notes of Pink Pepper and Green Mandarin, this perfume is what is known as a “Balsamic Floral” scent. With base notes of Roasted Tonka beans and Benzoin Laos, Roberto Cavalli is floral and sweet at a glance, but goes much deeper in to a colourful and seductive, luxurious scent.
We would say this is a scent for the modern young women who is looking for something different to the traditional older-smelling perfumes, but also something that doesn’t smell too youthful – a feminine take on the classics.

Light brown in colour and in an oval-shaped bottle with a signature Roberto Cavalli stopper, this perfume focuses more on what matters – the scent itself – rather than the design of the product itself.

Roberto Cavalli by Roberto Cavalli has the potential to be in the Top 10 favourite perfumes for women for years to come. We believe this is one of those which has the ability to become a ‘signature scent‘ because of its unique, feminine aroma.

Roberto CavalliThe new scent for her.

Fame By Lady Gaga

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 13/12/2012

lady-gaga-fame-advert

FAME signifies Lady Gaga‘s entrance in to the perfume market with a perfume named after her debut album which helped her reach the level of celebrity that she is at now.

Released in the UK on August 22nd, 2012 and in collaboration with The Haus Laboratories, FAME is but a couple of months old and is still trying to make its way in to the hearts and minds of its users.

FAME is different to other perfumes in the sense that it uses what is known as “push-pull technology”, which disregards the pyramidal composition structure that mainly all other perfumes use.

lady-gaga-fame-perfume-bottleThis technology allows FAME to highlight each individual note at the same time, without any hierarchy that you find in other perfumes – whilst wearing another fragrance, you have probably noticed the smell changes over time; this is due to the different notes wearing off and shining through. FAME will smell the same from the moment you put it on till the moment you wash it off.

The fragrance is made up of three main accords: Dark, sensual and light accord – the dark accord includes a poisonous flower known as Belladonna and a tad of incense which transforms itself into a floral veil which will engulf you with drops of honey, saffron and apricot.

Like the technology used to make this perfume, the liquid in which all of this is enveloped is also innovative; a black coloured liquid which Lady Gaga described as like fame itself: “Black like the soul of fame, but invisible once airborne.”

The design of the bottle (pictured above) is also quite nice  - shaped like an egg with a bottle stopper we can only describe as looking like a claw which is grasping the bottle. The black coloured perfume liquid is also a prominent part of this design, which is highlighted by the gold bottle stopper.

As a celebrity perfume, we like what Lady Gaga is doing by providing an innovative product which stands out amongst the dozens of other celebrity perfumes out there. A great scent and design.

GUILTY by GUCCI

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 12/12/2012

gucci-guilty-fragrance-advert

Today we will be looking at GUILTY by GUCCI

You’ve probably noticed as it gets closer to Christmas that Gucci are advertising their perfume products a lot on television – and with this, you may well have noticed GUILTY being advertised.

guilty-by-gucci-bottleComing with full page magazine advertisements and television ads, Gucci is really pushing this perfume – for a good reason, of course!

GUILTY opens up with a strong citrus accord with a light pepper-note at the end that gives this perfume a bite. The perfume itself is classed as “floriental”, which basically is a term given to perfumes which have heavy floral and oriental notes.
These are made up from a mixture of Mandarin, Pink Pepper, Peach, Lilac, Geranium, Amber and Patchouli – allowing it to be a very strong and long-lasting fragrance.  When the first notes have died down a little bit, you will be able to smell a silky Amber as well as Patchouli.

This is a modern perfume that we think had been designed for the modern women; one who is on the go and is active in her daily life. GUILTY by GUCCI would be perfect to wear either during the day or at night and will last a good amount of time.

We’re certainly GUILTY of being a fan!

jimmy-choo-perfume-advertisement
Jimmy Choo By Jimmy Choo is one of the best sellers when it comes to womens perfumes in the UK.

 

Glamorous in both design and aroma, Jimmy Choo was developed in association with IFF (International Flavors & Fragrances Inc.) by Olivier Polge; who is also responsible for other best sellers such as Only The Brave by Diesel and Pure Poison by Dior.

 

The fragrance itself incites confidence, glamour and intelligence and allows an aura of feminine strength to follow you wherever you go.

jimmy-choo-perfume-bottleWith top notes of Mandarin Orange & Pear, you can smell the sweetness of this perfume first and foremost.  This is followed by flowery notes which are made up from Orchids and base notes of Toffee and Patchouli.

 

This all allows for a sweet, empowering perfume which was released in 2011 – it comes in 540, 60 and 100ml and is bottled in a beautiful textured-glass bottle which will look fantastic on your dressing table or nightstand.

Why not give Jimmy Choo Eau de Parfum a try this Christmas?

ONLY THE BRAVE by Diesel

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 10/12/2012

diesel-only-the-brave-advertisement
Only The Brave” was released in 2009 and first grabbed most of our attention because of the design that was used on the bottle – the clenched fist with the word “DIESEL” scrolled across two of the fingers.

This is something that was apparently inspired by Renzo Rosso, the founder of Diesel, who has his initials (RR) tattooed on his own knuckles.  This is a nice bit if trivia about the design of the product itself, but what about the fragrance itself?

diesel-only-the-brave-bottleDiesel‘s “Only The Brave” is a very modern and masculine smelling which open with an element of leather, closely followed by lemon with back-notes of amber and cedar wood.

It was developed by three perfumers from the IFF Inc. (International Flavors and Fragrances Inc) and is designed to be used by those who do not want to be brave and be a hero, but have chosen to live that way.

Why not leave an impression, try something new and take charge?

FLOWER by Kenzo

by UK Perfume Price Comparisons on 05/12/2012

flower-by-kenzo-advertisement

Launched in 2000 and created by perfumer Alberto Morillas, Flower by Kenzo is somewhat of a modern masterpiece which is sure to stand the test of time along with some of today’s most revered classics.

By all accounts, Flower is a modern smelling perfume with a remarkably rich and long lasting aroma.  Made up from Wild Hawthorne, Bulgarian Rose, Parma Violet, Cassia, Hedione, Cyclosal, Opoponax, White Musk and Vanilla, this is a fragrance which mixes some very contrasting notes to create a perfume which has a similar effect to Guerlain’s Insolence; another perfume which uses a blend of some very modern and very traditional elements such as rose and violet.

flower-by-kenzoIf you haven’t had the chance to smell Kenzo Flower, we suggest that you head down to the nearest shop that sells fragrances and give it a try – you won’t be disappointed.  You should be able to find it in all the biggest retailers as this has been one of the best sellers throughout Europe for over ten years.

The bottle which Flower comes in is opaque, tall and thin; something which definitely reflects the contemporary design which is prevalent throughout the branding of this product.

It is available in three different sizes – 30, 50 and 100ml – each size is said to represent the different stages in which a poppy flower blooms.
