“The vibrant scent is comprised of sweet passion fruit, sparkling mandarin, ginger, and strawberry leaves spun together with an underlying delicate pink musk that suggests femininity and warmth. To round it out, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla add just the right touch of radiance.”
For those of you that don’t already know, I have a love affair with anything Betsey Johnson, so of course, I had to get her new perfume. I couldn’t justify buying the full size perfume as I’d just bought a Betsey dress at the Seattle store, so instead I got the 10 ml roller-ball version.
First off, the box is gorgeous. It has both the iconic cheetah print and the roses. Along the top, there is a string of shiny dots representing rhinestones.
The roller vial is a nice light pink and is very simple. The cap is black as is the print on the vial. There is also a black lightening bolt near the top. The ball is metal, which is a nice change from the standard plastic. My only concern is the bottle sounds and feels rather fragile. I guess I’ll just have to keep it in the box when I put it in my makeup bag.
In bottle: Mandarin, musk, ginger, and the passion fruit all hit at once.
Immediate on skin reaction: I immediately smelled the musk and the ginger. The musk is also rather obvious at this point.
Five minutes: Definitely can smell the rose, jasmine, and the vanilla. The musk is still noticeable but no longer overwhelming.
Lasting power: I believe mine lasted approximately 3 hours or so. Rather reasonable in my opinion.
Will I buy it again? Definitely.
