I have the shower gel of this, and I bought it at Winners for about 10 bucks. It has a nice evening musky scent, and it was nice for in the shower. I would not pay full price for it as its not a to-die-for scent, but the shower gel was nice and I looked forward to using it. The scent also lasted awhile on my skin even after getting out of the shower.

Really love this scent! I love the gorgeous packaging and the deep blue bottle it comes in. The scent itself seems very mysterious and mystical. It reminds of the scent of insense and smoke when you go to a fortune teller. There is also something very elegant and poised about this scent. I am not sure what time "velvet hour" is, but I want to live in this fragrance all the time.

I was watching a Parfums Noir collection video on Youtube, and this very beautiful woman with immaculate taste and a charming European accent held up the Kate Moss Velvet Hour bottle. I have a penchant for buying perfumes that have a dark bottles (scarlet red, black, or blue) and sexy, femme fatale feel (e.g. Dior Addict, Boucheron Trouble, Black Cashmere, Black Orchid, Hypnotic Poison...etc)
Velvet Hour would never be on my radar if it wasn't for this review.
I paid very little for this perfume, and I must admit that I really enjoy the look of the bottle and the juice inside. This wouldn't be my choice for a night on the town because I find it to be rather casual, I usually wear this during the day. I think it would be light enough to wear in the nighttime during the summer, but in the winter it wouldn't be my first choice for a going out scent due to its cleanness. To my nose, this smells very clean, almost detergent like, slightly sweet and woodsy. It sort of reminds me of a lighter version of Yves Saint Laurent Nu. There's definitely an androgynous edge to this that I really enjoy. It's strange that this perfume is marketed to a younger, mainstream crowd because I think this is sort of unusual. Overall, I really like Velvet Hour and I have no regrets about purchasing it.

I don't get all the negative reviews on this either! I really quite like it as it's quite unusual. This is the only fragrance I could describe as being "fresh and smoky", which is very contradictory!! It's kind of a smoky floral, which sounds weird, but in my opinion it works (well for me anyway!). I wouldn't describe it as an evening fragrance, however it could work well as an evening fragrance in the summer, as it's quite sexy but not at all heavy. I guess it's just not mainstream...... :-)

First of all, I got this at a discounter store for $12. So it's hard to beat that bargain. I think I'd pull a lippie if I paid anywhere near full price for this.
That being said, this is a nice fragrance, far better than I would have expected. I'm not crazy about the top notes on me: it's a bit sweet and fruity for me on the top notes--it may be the freesia--and I get a laundry-type musk note which is not my favorite. But moving into the middle and base notes, it's a very pleasant, woody/incensey blend with a bit of spice. It reminds me a bit of Donna Karan's Black Cashmere, albeit a less complex, more mainstream version. It would be nice for fall and winter.
So if you can find this discounted, it's worth a try!

This fragrance was on special this week at Priceline and I liked it enough to buy it. On me this is a sheer floral with lots of smokey base notes and I've already had three compliments on it. However I must point out I love musks, so I've been layering it with Jovan Musk, which gives it extra staying power However even without the layering I've still gotten compliments on it. If you love smoky fragances but want something that you can wear during the daytime without feeling too femme fatale, then this fragrance may well be for you. As for the low ratings, it seems that many people think it should be sexier because of the name. Like I said, in my opinion it's not really a sexy night time perfume, but it's lovely nonetheless. My only complaint is the bottle which is an awkward shape to hold.

Velvet Hour sounds so intriguing! And the bottle with its blue juice and and dark blue cap is so chic. The scent began nice enough with fruits, flowers, and woods - a cross between sweetness and some greens. But a very odd, out-of-place note emerged between the middle and base notes and it turned Velvet Hour into that dreaded Lady Stetson!

I first tried this on in a department store and really liked it - a smoky yet clean scent. I kept thinking about it, broke down and ordered a 100ml bottle online for about $35NZD which is an absolute steal. When it arrived I was so excited to try it on but alas was disappointed - it doesn't seem to smell the way it did when I first tried it on. This may be because I have started the BCP since then, so I'm not blaming the fragrance but the effect from it now is a very non-descript 'pleasant' scent. No particular notes stand out, there is a slight smokiness and a light floral accord and staying power is average. It isn't an overpowering smell and it would be hard to overdo it, unlike Michael Kors which is the olfactory equivalent of a fire alarm after two sprays, but it doesn't immediately fade to nothing like Benefit's Maybe Baby did on me. I feel it is too tame for its name 'Velvet Hour', because it is more of an inoffensive office scent with an oriental slant on me. I won't repurchase but will definitely use up the bottle as an everyday scent when I feel like blending in with the crowd.
Edit: this smells lovely sprayed on cushions and blankets.

This is a beautiful perfume! it smells gorgeous, I don't get the bad reviews- it smells nothing like mothballs or all these other allegations. Maybe its just the way that scent adheres to my skin? anywho There is a small liquidating store near me that often gets discontinued makeup items, and the past 2 weeks I have picked up items for a steal (couple boxes of dream blonde hairdye at $5.00 a box, Sally Hansen Makeup etc..) they also got popular items from stores that either went bankrupt and they have recently gotten a huge selection of perfume. I saw this laying around an isle and spritzed a bit on my wrist- the smell reminds me of a forest by an ocean (cheesy, I know!) its very deep, sensual, fresh and slightly musky with a hint of floral. I fell in love, and purchased it for only $1.98! since no box was included...however I'm pretty sure the regular price isn't so steep though. this perfume lasts all day one me, and I adore it :)

Smells like pure incense.

This perfume smells like mothballs and blackcurrant. Ewww.

This smells like the drydown of an upmarket oriental. It's warm and a little sweet & spicy with something "hot" in it- is it the "blue pepper" (one of the notes)? Love the toffee apple note.
It's not exceptional but I like it and it's longlasting, always a bonus. Price is very good too now it's available online at a discount.

This is a "sexy" perfume, the bottle is ugly and cheap looking but I really like the smell on myself. Personally I don't usually like to wear celebrity endorsed perfumes but I tryed this in the store and it was very sultry and smoky but young. I have had a lot of compliments on it. It is a real shame the bottle wasn't more attractive because I collect beautiful perfume bottles.

I tried this fragrance on for the third time today and I've come to the conclusion that it's warm and sexy, yet very classy.It's not really striking and impressive, but I find it very elegant, and for that I would definitely buy.

I'm so happy I received this for Christmas! I just love it. I notice a lot of people so far don't like this. On me when I wear this I have gotten compliments quite a bit from a couple co-workers, and some family members. They all say how sensual it smells on me. I find this to be a very warm sexy smell. I love Kate Moss and think shes beautiful. I love to think this is what Kate smells like so I get to smell like her! Ha. The bottle is so beautiful. I wasn't really a fan of her first fragrance but love this one. Also, maybe if this doesn't smell nice it doesn't mix with body chemistry. There is a ton of perfume my mom can wear but when I put it on it doesn't smell the same.

Fortunately I didn`t buy this perfume,but sprayed some on my wrist at cosmetics store. Well,it`s pure alcohol and 20 min later it starts to smell like lemon. Very boring fragrance,nothing unique about it,ugly model - ugly perfume.

For the price and for the class of scent I thought this was actually not bad at all. I don't think I would buy it, but stranger things have happened. I will keep retryint it until one of the two happens: I either fall in love or I decide that this is awfule after all. The first Kate Moss scent was nothing special on me, but I loved it on my sister in law - had no idea this is what it was and could not stop sniffing her... Kate smelles so wonderful on her. Velvet Hour is an ineresting name for it, not sure it's quite fitting, but that doesn't matter to me. The bottle on the other hand reminds me of Casmir by Chopard, but while it works for Chopard it somehow doesn't work for this scent.

Oh wow. I sprayed a bit of Velvet Hour on my wrist and couldn't smell anything, so I gave myself four more hearty squirts. I took a whiff and all I could smell was a faint ashtray smell mixed with a faint gardenia (or something like that). On a cardboard strip I sprayed, it smells faintly green-floral-fresh with an overtone of cigarette ashes. I didn't like her original scent either but by comparison it is so much better than this new one. Velvet Hour looked promising but totally failed to deliver IMO. No sale.

okay ... i wanna be honest - i´m VERY VERY dissapointed by this one !
First of all it´s pure alcohol.
Second : The fragrance smells like my beloved Kate Moss 1 with a lot of pepper, heliotrop, leaf-smell and rotten grapefruit smell.
i hate it.
the bottle is beautiful, but i just hate the fragrance !!!!
