Karl Lagerfeld has launched Private Klub, a new intense fragrance celebrating youth, life, confidence and a VIP guest list. Private Klub is a fragrance for women, inspired by the fleeting nightlife of a sexy woman who goes from club to club and a trail of scent left behind there.

Private Klub bottles are coated with a gold ombré lacquer for the women’s version and silver for the men’s and feature clean lines that evoke Karl Lagerfeld’s ready-to-wear collections. The box and the bottles have identical designs to the first fragrance (Karl Lagerfeld) just the colour scheme is different. Really love the shape of these bottles with the buffed corners they ooze elegance and sophistication. The vial could have been very nice but the gold overspray gives it a cheap look.

Fragrance notes are as follows:
Top notes: Bergamot, Citrus, Peppercorns
Middle notes: Magnolia, Rose, Violet
Base notes: Almond, Musk, Cashmeran *
* Is a synthetic fragrance (not obtained from nature), but is based on musk / amber -> the sense of cashmere .. which can be found as a signature note in the Thierry Mugler fragrances.
This is classified in the floriental (floral oriental) family.

Even thought note wise some of the notes are the same as the original it smells really different in comparison, the original which I prefer is more light and floral very suitable for day time and private club is more warm and strong smelling more of an evening scent. The fragrance releases an ultra-feminine signature full of vitality, modernity and contemporary glamour. It’s a very unique perfume. It lingers very long. Peppercorns as a top note is something you smell immediately which is what makes it a very alluring perfume. This scent is sweet and very similar to Dolce & Gabbana the one desire.

Review: Jimmy choo blossom EDP

 

Jimmy choo blossom

“Every time I slip on my Jimmy Choo heels or pick up my Jimmy Choo handbag, I feel like a different person. When I was asked to work on Jimmy Choo Blossom, I immediately imagined a joyful fragrance that lifts your spirits, gives you great confidence and makes you feel beautiful and alluring. I tried to find the right balance between happy, uplifting and luxurious citrus and red fruits and very feminine ingredients such as beautiful addictive florals, sandalwood and a deeply sensual musk. I wanted to produce the sensation of an endless shower of petals that swirl around you forever.”

Louise Turner, Perfumer

Described as – It is perfect for bold & bright young party girls. It this elements of sparkles and vivacious imagine the sip of a first cocktail, the clinking of glasses with the girls, the sexy soundtrack on the dance floor. The box speaks for it self, sparkling glitter pink box that wows my heart instantly. The bottle itself looks with fuschia ombré emphasizes the multi-faceted glass with a diamond cap. Looks like the flash range bottles. Jimmy choo really know how to make beautiful bottles just like their shoes. Probably the most beautiful in my book since it’s pink and I love all thing pink and glittery.

Top Notes: Sweet Pea, Rose

Heart Notes: Berries, Citrus

Base Notes: White Musk, Sandalwood

If you look at the notes per level you’ll notice they didn’t use many notes as a standard fragrance will usually consist of at least 3 but this makes the fragrance more pure as there is not too much going on.It smells sort of sweet and sour at the same time with a hint of flowers.

Initially as the name suggested I expected more of a floral scent but it is actually a fruity floral and because the florals are up top the fruit is actually more prominent. It’s a modern, feminine and delicate scent. This is a slightly sweet, girly and fruity fragrance that pairs great with hot weather. It is more light and sweeter compared to all the other Jimmy Choos which I find slightly overpowering and heavy. Jimmy Choo blossom is a perfect spring-summer fragrance. Lasting power is amazing it will last you the entire day.

A blend of candied fruit and sweet orange blossom gives way to the warm feminine floral heart of this fun yet luxurious perfume experience. Full of personality, the Sweet! Eau de Parfum opens with a sparkly and spontaneous fruity burst of toffee apple and juicy plum evolving into a shimmering vibrant floral bouquet of intense sugared rose petals.  Finally, the fragrance culminates in soft, warm Vanilla base notes which wrap all the sweet notes together creating a modern fragrance with an elegant fruity-floral composition.

 Top:
Fruity (Apple, Orange Blossom and Plum).

Heart:
Floral (Rose, Lily and Muguet).

Drydown:
Vanilla (Vanilla, Sandalwood and Teak).

I really love how they didn’t just make the scent smell sweet like candy like I would have expected which makes it a very practical scent to wear. It’s quite light and fresh smelling and more floral than fruity smelling. I haven’t seen many scents that contain apple note besides the DKNY range so it’s very refreshing to see they aren’t going the traditional fruity route.The flacon of the new perfume Sweet! Is made of glass, with fun details and a matte golden cap. It is decorated with a pendant shaped like a plate with name Candy Crush. The fragrance is available as 75 ml EDP. Exclusive to Foschini Stores Nationwide, retails for R595.
