I tried and liked the EDT, and so I had to try the EDParfum too so I could compare them. The EDT is a bit of a sharper-clean fragrance, kind of like a very expensive, very creamy, very fragrant hotel soap. The EDT also lasts longer on me. The EDParfum is similar to the EDT in some ways, only it is mellower and more pink-floral/honey. The EDParfum lacks the soapiness of the EDT, but it makes up for that with the soft, mellow floral-honey drydown. When I wear the EDT I think of white soap, crystal perfume bottles and ivory cashmere. When I wear the EDParfum I think of tiny, baby pink roses and a warm breeze drifting though honey-colored lace curtains on a cool summer night. The two scents are quite different, but yet they also somehow have something in common. Something about them at their core is very similar, maybe the amber or musc. I'm not sure. The two are like cousins. I recommend you try both and see which one you like better. I fell in love with the EDT, then after trying the EDParfum found I liked that even more! I bought the EDParfum instead and I love it! It clings close to the skin and has such creamy, soft bottom notes. Love it!
I never thought that I'd love any fragrance more than Narciso Rodriguez EDT...but then along came the EDP! Ok maybe I don't like it more, but I definitely like it just as much! Its a heavier, sweeter version of the original and I get just as many compliments on this one. I spray myself constantly and its never enough!
i'm totally in love with this. on me, the amber is balanced with a non-cloying sweetness; there's some woody honey, a hint of peach and a not too musky (or musty!) musk. to me, it smells like warm, clean human; as weird as that may sound! it's a comforting, close type of smell. i prefer the EDP to the EDT and have tried the lotion, which i didn't care for. too ambery. but the EDP is a nice blend. worth checking out. definitely keep smelling your wrist once you've sprayed. it just melts into your skin.
This scent is addictive to me. I always have to have it in my collection. The only weird thing is sometimes it smells thick and cloying, a mishmash of notes -- yuck. Other times, it's a beautiful dusky floral. I just have to try it on a given day to see if it's liking me or not at that moment.
As a number of people have noted here, the EDT and EDP are quite different. The one I own is the EDP because when I initially tried both versions on me, I liked the warmth of the EDP. I think that people do need to try both versions of them and wait for a few hours to see which ones blend better into them. When I wear this, the honey and the egyptian musk notes are the most dominant. The lasting power is great.
After smelling this on my friend for the first time I just had to have it! This fragrance is SEX. I bought it 2 weeks ago and wear it everyday since then. All you need is 3 spritzs and it'll last you the whole day since EDPs last longer than EDTs. It's pretty pricey ($150 CAD for the 100ml taxes included) but it's worth it as long as you see it as a long term investment. :D
I usually only wear fresh lighter perfumes so I was amazed I kept getting drawn to this frangrance in the perfume section of the department stores. I find it quite overpowering at first but then it settles down and I find myself compulsively sniffing my wrists and my clothes where it lingers, I bought it but after a couple of months I got very sick of wearing it and find it a bit cloying now. I like it on other people but not so much on me now. Its just to overpowering.
I own this and am wearing at at this very moment and I really love it.
The drydown is so lovely, it has a spicy note to it I find. I love the pink bottle too, although I wish it was in the pink box instead of the black but oh well. I find on me though that it doesn't last too long. I sprayed it about 5 hours ago and unless I put my wrist up to my nose, I can't tell I have it on.
However I love it too much to care...it makes me happy smelling it.
I went and tried a spritz of each version on each wrist. At first I wasn't that impressed with either, favouring the pink bottle slightly over the black. The middle notes didn't do much for me either but by the time I reached the base note both were starting to grab my attention a little more. Not enough to purchase though at this stage. I think this is the sort of fragrance that could really grow on you though. It's really not bad at all.
At first sniff I thought the EDP was better than the EDT - starts off a more creamy version of the EDT. But then once I wore it for a while it lost something wonderful that the EDT has. If you are trying to decide between the EDT and EDP I would recommend sampling them both in a side to side sniff test to see which you prefer, then wearing both for a day each.
