For some reason, I had the bonkers idea to sniff, sample and review as many perfumes as I can in 2010....

Capsule Reviews - Madame X & Glam Princess

Originally posted at Dreamwidth on February 02, 2010.

Jean-Paul Gaultier - Madame
Notes of Sour Orange, Rose, Grenadine, Musk and Cedar.

Big, huge, MAHOOOSIVE hit of orange on first spray, utterly bonkers
. Fizzy and slightly plasticky but lots of fun. Very young, very silly, not terribly rosey. GREAT silage, I sprayed this on my foot, and the smell still reached my nose. Worth hunting down if you want something flippant.

Vera Wang - Glam Princess
Top notes of crushed red berries, juicy guava and sparkling pear

Heart notes of orange blossom and vanilla orchid

Base notes of warm ambrette, sugary marshmallow and soft cashmere wood

Smells of artificial fruit (apples, more than anything else). Utterly horrid. If you want a nice girly scent, splash out for Daisy by Marc Jacobs instead.
