What’s your signature perfume?

Hey everyone!

Are you a perfume hoarder? I was cleaning through my cupboard a few days back, and I realized I have just 2 perfumes with me at the moment- Calvin Klein Eternity for women and Elizabeth Arden Mediterranean. These are both more than a year old now, and looking at the amount of product left inside the bottles, I’m happy I didn’t buy any other perfumes these past months. Also, over time, these have kind of become my signature perfumes.

My take on Elizabeth Arden Visible Difference Optimizing Skin Serum: It is a white coloured, light-weight serum, of an almost runny consistency. The moment it is applied onto the skin, the skin kind of drinks it up, and you instantly feel that the serum tightens up the skin, especially, closing the pores on and around the nose. The skin feels firmer, and softer. However, this serum broke me out. I tried it for 3 days at two different intervals, with a break in between, to know if this product was the culprit, and it really was the one to break me out. I would have liked it otherwise. Maybe it would suit those with dry/ normal skin. Not too sure though.

Verdict: I have oily skin, and even though this serum worked at tightening some open pores around the nose, I would not buy the full sized product since it broke me out. It may work differently for other skin types, but I’m not sure.

Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean: Review

Hi girls!
Today I’m reviewing another favorite perfume of mine. My nose is very sensitive to fragrances, and I am drawn towards perfumes like an iron nail would be drawn towards a magnet, and I tend to splurge too. You can say that my nose is my sixth sense, and I have practically been in situations where I have picked up smells before others, say, when something is getting burned over the stove-top in the kitchen. But jokes apart, I have a nose for perfumes, especially ones which have a hint of musk, and remind me of the beach (I’m a total beach person, btw!).

Here’s Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean for you all!


Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean

About Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean*: Mediterranean by Elizabeth Arden is a Woody Floral Musk fragrance for women. Mediterranean was launched in 2007. The nose behind this fragrance is Claude Dir. Top notes are sicilian mandarin, plum and peach; middle notes are magnolia, orchid and wisteria; base notes are sandalwood, amber and musk.

Price: Approximately Rs. 3900 for 100mL

Packaging: The Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean comes in a bright blue cardboard box, with holographic print, which reminds me of the sea instantly. The box is divided into two parts, the lower, silver base, and te upper blue lid. The blue lid needs to be lifted to reveal the contents inside. On the inside, the perfume bottle sits in a plastic holder on top of the blue base. For some reason, I totally adore the packaging of Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean, since it’s not the typical card-board box.

The bottle is made up of translucent glass in the same blue color as the outer cover, and has a silver cap with a textured surface. Brand and product name are written under the bottle. It looks very slassy!

PS: never throw away the boxes in which perfumes are packaged. You must always store the perfumes in some closed cabinet, and these boxes come in handy. This way, the perfume is always safe from variations in temperature, humidity, and safe from light, and hence the quality will not deteriorate over time. While travelling too, I prefer carrying perfumes in these boxes. They do take up a lot of space, but the delicate bottles are always safe inside.

Perfume notes: Top notes are sicilian mandarin, plum and peach; middle notes are magnolia, orchid and wisteria; base notes are sandalwood, amber and musk.
My experience with Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean:This is my favourite summer perfume. It is light, crisp, and stays on my skin till the next day. The fragrance is not over-powering, and can be worn to during the day too, to office, college, or to a casual day-date. the fact that this perfume leaves a mild trail behind you is what I love the most. i spray it on the pulse points, e.g. wrist, and whenever I move my hand around, I can smell a whiff of this perfume, and it totally relaxes me.

The fragrance instantly transports me to the beach side, and I totally love it for that. It feels as if I’m sitting by the beach, sipping on a mocktail in the evening, and enjoying the cool breeze on my skin! Ah, bliss!! I can forever stay on a beach, and can enjoy that beachy feeling anytime with this perfume. All in all, a must-have if you love perfumes which have a woody and musky notes, and which remind you of being surrounded by water all around. Pure comfort!

Skipping the regular pros and cons section for this post, as I’ve written all the pro’s above, and I find no cons with this perfume. Price can be debatable, but then it’s a high-end product, and is bound to be expensive.

Verdict:  Elizabeth Arden Eau De Parfum- Mediterranean is a must-buy if you have a nose for woody, musky perfumes with a hint of floral notes somewhere!!

Rating: 10/10
