Perfumes don’t just make you smell great but also there’s no denying that wearing a perfume is an instant mood lifter for oneself. As I look through my perfume collection having tried multiple brands and kinds of perfumes, If I had to pick one woman’s perfume that stands out for me currently, it would be Narciso Eau De Parfum by Narciso Rodriguez. So why did I look ahead of the Burberry, Dior, Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth Arden, Givenchy and so many other such brands? Let’s find out!
Narciso Rodriguez is a renowned American fashion designer especially since the last two decades. There are many milestones in his work life but Michelle Obama wearing his collection to celebrate Barrack Obama’s win as the President was indeed monumental. Apart from perfumes his art also spans around designing ready-to-wear for women with his fashion house based in New York. The first ever perfume was created by him in the year 2003 after which he launched various other perfumes and they all are very widely acknowledged as iconic classics. NARCISO Eau De Parfum (launched in 2014) for me is an intoxicating fragrance with the top possible combinations of notes there could be for a woman’s perfume.
The heart of this perfume is pure musk with top notes of Gardenia & Bulgarian rose and base notes of white & black cedars and Vetiver. The fragrance is a combination of soft florals, clean musky and warm woody tones, making it a perfect wear for relatively colder months. It definitely is a recent signature fragrance for me and the numerous praises I’ve received for it seal the deal for it to be one. The longevity of the perfume is moderate to high depending upon the usage and areas the perfume has been used. For maximum longevity, wear the perfume on your pulse points and on well moisturized skin. Narciso Rodriguez perfumes range from INR 3400 to INR 8000 with 30ml, 50ml & 100ml as the available sizes.
Look & Feel
The make of the bottle is a classic example of ‘Less is more’ and stands true to the allure of minimalism. The bottle of Narciso ‘Eau De Parfum’ is a white cube bottle with thick glass and painted white from the inside creating an opaque bottle for the fragrance stored inside. Clean black letters and font is used to write Narciso on the front of the bottle. The cap is matte flat top, very light beige in color with the designer’s name engraved on the top of it. It’s simple and understated yet stands out for its subtlety.
Where To Buy
If you are a woman who is looking to purchase a modern-day, seductive and brilliant fragrance that will surely stand out, click here and buy it online in India. However, the pleasure of going to the store and smelling fragrances spritz on white strips while smelling coffee beans in between is a completely different experience. There are many multi-brand stores where you can find Narciso Rodriguez such as Parcos where I got mine. Nykaa has a dedicated Parcos store where you can shop these fragrances and more. Since during the current time in 2020, going to the stores is quite not an option yet, but you can still shop well online if you take the time to read about the notes of the perfumes and understand them.
