Who would have thought that the success of 1 Million would make Lady Million be created and become an even greater success ?! For those who have never seen the famous One Million advertisement and are unaware of the whole hit of these perfumes, I'll start at the beginning.
At 2008 Christophe Raynaud, Michel Girard and Olivier Pescheux helped develop the 1 million men's fragrance. The success was so great that it gained its recognition by winning in 2009 the prize of "Best New Luxury Men's Fragrance" by the Fifi Awards (for those unfamiliar, Fifi Awards siginfica Fragrance Foundation Awards and is considered the Oscar of perfumes).
Two years later, finally, the Lady Million version appears. And again success has reproduced! As if it were not enough to be one of the best-selling perfumes, Lady Million is competing for 2011's Fifi Awards in the categories "Best Specialized Luxury Fragrance" (my translation has turned out to be awful, but they are fragrances of luxury that are only sold in specialized stores - and not in department stores), "Best Luxury Fragrance Packaging of the Year" and "Best Campaign of the Year".
So let's get right to the point, because I imagine most have been curious to know what the magic composition of this perfume is (EDP version). This woody floral is composed of neroli, raspberry and bitter orange in its opening; Jasmin, gardenia and orange blossom in your heart; And honey, amber and patchouli at its base.
If the composition is already to make the eyes shine, just wait until you feel the fragrance. Its aroma really fulfills its proposal of being vibrant, sensual and super feminine. In the first sprinkled a delicious floral scent provided by neroli and a very well balanced alternation of orange and raspberry. It feels good to feel in one instant a more citric aroma in the background and in the other enjoy a more sweet. The composition gradually evolves to a new type of floral, being the new main attraction the gardenia. And as I already confessed to you in one of the videos that I always feel the aroma of jasmine, I could not help but feel it here too. Only it is very subtle, just like the orange blossom. And since my crazies have not been around for long, the orange blossom in it reminds me of a lot of ripe passion fruit. Finally, honey and amber appear in the fragrance and I must say that, in my opinion, honey is what brings much of the power of seduction! Overall, there is nothing better than the exotic word to describe its aroma.
Its fixing is amazing! It was several times that I sprayed in the morning and there it was late at night still potent. Just so you have an idea, whenever I post a review here on the blog I sprinkle the perfume on me a few minutes before to remember all the notes that are highlighting. I started to do the review last night before going to sleep and here I am today with the perfume still on the wrist! And by the way, Lady Million is not inconspicuous. Not that it is a strong scent that can not be used in the morning. None of this! What I mean is that it spreads in an incredible way. It's to leave a trace. And I have to say, again, that the smell of honey is exciting!
And for those who enjoy a beautiful package, the design of the Lady Million is beautiful. More than deserved to be competing in this issue at the Fifi Awards. A diamond-shaped bottle covered with gold. Cool, huh ?!
If you think Lady Million is one of my darlings, you are mistaken! He is a darling of my mother who really looks magnificent on her! But as I said, perfumes evolve differently on each skin type, and frankly, at some point the gardenia leaves a nuisance scent on my skin. By no means am I saying that I do not indicate this perfume. On the contrary, I find a composition very intelligent and I love to feel it there. What I'm trying to say is that it pays to try it first on the skin instead of buying it in the dark! That's my tip!
