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.

Pure honey by Kim Kardasian

An enticing scent that draws people to you like bees to blooms. An alluring blend of raw wild honey and voluptuous florals, Pure Honey harnesses the legendary aphrodisiac power of honey to bring you Kim Kardashian’s most sensual fragrance yet. Aphrodite, goddess of love, used honey as her own personal nectar. Kim’s borrowed the nectar of the gods to make a fragrance as golden and radiant as she is, for a little taste of heaven.

Housed in an art deco vessel reminiscent of a diamond, Pure Honey’s amber bottle encapsulates the scent’s delightful warmth. Opaque and multifaceted, the bottle shifts seamlessly in the light from translucent to a deep, dark tone – mirroring the transformation of pure flower nectar into golden honey.

Fragrance Notes

Top Notes: Freesia, Mandarin blossom, Red rose
Heart Notes: Honeysuckle, Honeycomb, Orchid
Base Notes: Coconut, Musk, Vanilla

Although I may not be a huge fan of Kim Kardashian I will admit this fragrance smells amazing! Would recommend it to anyone who likes a pretty floral that is laced with sweetness.The newest Kim Kardashian fragrance is Pure Honey which I do think anyone who enjoys the scent of honey, sugar and honeycomb will lap up.The bottle is rather sweet and dare I say it inviting – an art deco inspired bottle with a cuter than cute little golden bee. Also the color of the liquid looks exactly like honey.

Basically Pure Honey is a bright yet sensual honey floral fragrance that some may find a little sweet but if you are looking for a fragrance that smells true to real honey this is the one. I would also say that if you enjoyed The Body Shop’s Honeymania range this is one for you. Upon first spritz I get a extremely sweet floral after a few hours of wear this does fade to a musk and then an obvious powdery talcum scent and the general longevity of this fragrance is quite good. What I love the most about this scent is the fact that it is a formal version of Chanel no.5 which I can’t seem to con myself into loving so this is ideal for me.

Price wise it is actually quite affordable being cheaper than other celeb scents it retails at R595 for 50ml or R695 for 100ml
