Its rainy today and yesterday was just plain humid hot. With the unpredictable weather happening here in Singapore, I found that its kinda hard for me choose the right fragrance to wear. Too light and it dissipates quickly while too hearty causes choking pandemonium.
Thus, I was extremely excited to receive Versace Bright Crystal Absolu because it seems to promise refreshing notes with subtle intensity.
And what's even better....
The packaging is FUCSIA PINK!!! ^_^ You know my love for pink and I just can't get over how nicely detailed is the box. Laced with gold borders and a master piece of an ancient lion tablewear (what's the name for this!?), the exterior exudes sophistication with a mysterious offering.
The set comes with:
1) A 50ml perfume
2) A deluxe size shower gel
3) A deluxe body lotion
According to Versace's official description, the scent is:
"A FRAGRANCE WITH INTENSIFIED CHARACTER, BECOMES ABSOLU. THE AMAZING VIBRANCY OF YUZU IMMEDIATELY STANDS OUT BETWEEN COLOURED AND JUICY POMEGRANATE SEEDS CREATING AN UNUSUAL FRESHNESS, PURE AND NATURAL. THE HEART IS ENRICHED WITH INVITING AND VELVETY ACCENTS OF RASPBERRY, ACCENTED BY THE ELEGANCE OF PEONY ALONG WITH REFINED NOTES OF MAGNOLIA AND LOTUS FLOWERS. THEN A TRAIL EVOKES AN INTENSE AND VOLUPTUOUS SENSUALITY, WITH PRECIOUS VEGETAL AMBER, DEEP ACAJOU WOOD, BRIGHT AND VIBRANT MUSK."
So, here are the 2 reasons why I fell in love immediately with this fragrance.
1) The Pink Crystal Bottle
Can we just take a moment and admire the beauty of this gorgeous crystal pink bottle? Its like a girl's dream, well, at least my dream. Its just the perfect combo to make me squeal like a little girl. Well suited to the name, absolutely bright and crystal-y.
2) The Man Loves It
On me, the scent started out refreshing and florally and slowly developed into a deeper muskier scent without being overpowering. And guess what ladies, my hubz loves this stuff. Its been a while since he last praise a perfume I wore and this one, oh boy, he praised it 2 times (one after spritzing and the other after a couple of hours). And whenever I wore it, there's always praises from him. Speaking about men and their noses -__-'''.
In conclusion, I FREAKIN' adore this perfume. Super huge thumbs up from me.
