I loathe the end of daylight saving time with a passion. As if it weren’t bad enough that it was getting dark at 6 PM, today by 5 it felt like the evening. I am going to blame my unproudctiveness as well as crazy appetite on this. My stomach can’t tell time, but it can somehow discern when daylight fades. This means in summer, I start thinking about dinner at 9. For the next few months, I’ll barely be able to wait until 6.
But what was I going to tell you about? Probably not my strange early dinner cravings. It’s the new *Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Eau de Parfum. It reminds me of balmy summer evenings that I have been missing dearly.
Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Eau de Pafum is housed in a clear/milky white cube with a square cap. The clean and structured appearance seems to be in line with the designer’s aesthetics. I can’t find any information about the nose behind this fragrance, but apparently Mr. Rogriguez was shooting for a sexy and seductive scent.
Narciso Rogriguez Narciso opens with white floral notes such as rose and gardenia. I can’t find any citrus listed in the notes pyramid, but I do catch a distinctive whiff of that, too. The musky heart soon mixes in. The concoction is creamy, comforting, and smooth. Eventually, Narciso dries down to cedarwood. Vetiver is also listed in the base notes, but I can’t really pick it out. It lasts for about 10 hours on me.
For some reason, Narciso reminds me of Burberry My Burberry, even though on paper, they don’t have that many notes in common. I think it’s the way that all the notes are really mashed together that makes them resemble one another to a certain extent. I would describe both as warm and creamy. They’re not bad fragrances. In fact, I wouldn’t describe any fragrance as a flop because a lot about it is inseparable from personal tastes and skin chemistry. It’s just that after My Burberry, this one doesn’t seem terribly unique.
Have you tried any fragrances from Narciso Rodriguez? Just from the notes, I think the For Her Eau de Toilette looks promising! I am hoping the notes wouldn’t be as mashed together though.
