Well, not so new :). I was late in this review after attending the fragrance launch somewhere in August. Sorry! But I have a reason for the delay.
It is a fact that perfume review is very subjective. Everyone is different. It’s either you love it or hate it. On the launch day itself I had migrain since morning. You might have guessed that on that day I was very sensitive to almost everything. Food I like smelt horrible to me, laptop screen too bright although I adjusted it to the lowest brightness and of course perfume is too strong and makes me giddy. That was exactly what happen with this lovely Jeanne LANVIN Couture perfume. Don’t get me wrong. It’s not bad until I was giddy. It’s the migrain!
When I reached Spanish Steps Pavilion KL (where the launch is) I was already excited. Add that excitement to migrain and you’d get a giddy me. When I was given a bow band to take a sniff and when the new fragrance was spritz to the air…it was fresh and sweet and it does smells good. Please remind me not to take deeeeeeeppp breath next time at fragrance launch when I’m having migrain k? Maybe I took too much of a sniff at the bow band on my wrist, I started to get dizzy LOL!! I knew immediately it wasn’t the perfume. So, the big question is. Does it smell good? I’ll tell you what I think…BELOW 😛
Alright. The packaging, bottle etc review. What I like about the box packaging is that I get a cardboard outer box sleeve, a plastic wrapper, the box and inner box which is slightly corrugated to protect and to let the bottle sit securely inside. Very secure considering the bottle is made from glass and heavy!
The bottle. Absolute gorgeous. The bottle is a square 2-tone color with Jeanne LANVIN grosgrain fabric label on the middle while decorated with a deep purple ribbon box on the neck of the bottle, created by Artistic Director Alber Elbaz Lanvin. The bottle fits perfectly on the palm of my hand. Heavy but steadily. I always remind myself not to drop it lol! I’m clumsy at times so I’d normally sit on my bed while handling this gorgeous.
