007 for Women - just the perfume not the man!

I love getting things for free and even better when it is something as lovely as a full sized perfume as well as twenty sachet samples to share with friends and family.

This is a lovely feminine new perfume that is floral, oriental and sensual. It is oriental in its notes but not the heavy sultry aroma of the old Opium and other orientals but more feminine and lighter so would suit a wide age range and is also great for night or day.

The notes for this are :

Top: Bergamot, Black Pepper, Rose Milk

Heart: Blackberry, Gardenia, Jasmine

Base: Black Vanilla, Cedarwood, White Musk

The initial floral rose and peppery scent is fresh and pretty , the headier gardenia and jasmine follows quite quickly. Sadly for me the deeper heart notes are no strong enough as although I can detect the musk and cedarwood and creaminess it is very subtle and fades far too quickly for me.

I love the scent and find it beautifully femine and a pretty aroma but just wish it lasted a bit longer on me as it disppears completely after a couplke of hours on my skin. I can just about detect it on my clothes longer but it is not packing as much of a punch as I would have hoped from an EDP, it is more like a EDT to me.

I bet the owners and the investors of this company must be happy with your review.

You have done a good job in the picture. I hardly use perfumes, my dogs object.

The cats don't seem to mind and I love perfumes so the dog would have to lump it

I hope I have been balanced in my views as it is lovely but just doesn't last long enough on me :(

I don't know the first thing about perfume, I had a bottle of cheap (£3) perfume for Xmas about 7 years ago, I've still got it as I wear it "for best" only.

i can't remember the last time I used cologne, let alone perfume. We started spending a lot of time with someone who reacted to such scents, so I stopped using it. After he died, I just never started using it again.

I stopped using such things several years ago. I found that I am quite sensitive to chemicals--including these perfume concoctions.
