GlossyBox Review

This week I will be reviewing the first product from March's Limited Edition Harrods GlossyBox; Narciso Rodriguez's Eau De Parfum for her, a feminine and sultry fragrance that I am determined to treat myself to next pay day!

I am undeniably boring when it comes to perfume and I usually just stick to my chosen scent, which is Miss Dior Chérie
*FYI if anybody else uses this perfume you may be interested to know that it is half price at Debenhams at the moment, a pretty good deal as it's usually quite pricey costing £80. This offer also includes Narciso Rodriguez's Eau De Parfum and many others. Click here.*

I like my perfume to be sweet and light but I don't usually go for anything too overpowering and as I have allergies, for practical reasons I tend to stay away from anything too flowery in smell. The Narciso Rodriguez perfume certainly ticked all of these boxes for me and plenty more. I was pretty skeptical about using a new perfume at first but I loved this fragrance once on, as it developed with time and smelt light, feminine and very elegant.  

I have used this sample every day since receiving it in my GlossyBox at the beginning of March and although I can see that it might not be to everyone's taste, it definitely is the sort of fragrance that grows on you and smells better with time. Supposedly Narciso Rodriguez was deeply inspired by a mysterious women when it comes to this fragrance and this perhaps explains why its scent is sultry, radiant and velvety. 

If you have ever smelt Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely or Gucci by Gucci then you will already be familiar with this fragrance, as I would argue that it does resemble both of these scents. Its RRP is £55 for 50ml, which in my opinion is a standard and fair price for a classy and sophisticated perfume. 

Overall I would give this fragrance 4 out of 5, as the more I wore it, the more I fell in love with it. My sample size has run out now and I am certainly missing not having the option of wearing it every day! I was however pleased to see a free sample of this exact perfume in this seasons Vogue, which definitely put a smile on my face and has meant my sample has lasted longer then expected.....

I really recommend this fragrance if you are someone who enjoys experimenting with perfumes or having a mixed variety to choose from. A gorgeous perfume with a light and timeless finish.


  1. I got the Versace perfume in the Harrods box which is a bit stronger than I would usually go for but is still okay for daytime. My favourite range of perfumes is Anna Sui and I find it near impossible to pick a fav!

    And btw I picked you for an award I got a week ago, The Versatile Blog Award :) You can see it here:
