Latest Narciso Rodriguez Reviews

Narciso Poudree
4.0

This is my favorite perfume in the entire Narciso Rodriguez line. I'm not a fan of the brand like some of my friends are. Its flankers often smell chemically and harsh on my skin, with too little projection for my liking. However, I quite like Poudree. It is a soft, cozy, comfortable and caressing little sister to thicker, denser, more complex and ambitious powders - some vintage, some niche and some simply luxurious. It gives that clean and soft makeup powder satisfaction when more complex stuff feels too much or when I just want a pared down but cozy feel still retaining a well-made character. My usual makeup bag fragrances are either from Guerlain or from Frederic Malle. But there are those days when I just want something with a mellow, pleasant presence and Narciso Poudree definitely gives it to me. I don't have many make-up products and cannot compare, but Narciso Poudree always reminds me of the satisfaction I get from my beloved Chanel Poudre Universelle compact. It has a casual chic vibe in its own right and attracts a lot of compliments when I use it together with the matching lotion to be able to increase its sillage a bit. It is one of those perfumes that easily becomes second skin, and does this well IMO. Top notes are apparently rose, jasmin and orange blossom. I don't care for the opening because with Narciso Rodriguez, I always get a rather chemical burst at first and wait for it to pass. Luckily, the heart emerges in a minute and from there on, it is pretty linear on my skin with that well-rounded, clean but very soft smell. I'm happy that no flower is particularly dominant and that there is no strong rose or violet giving it a vintage feel. Just a light blushing rose that does not dominate the mellow powder feel. It is not harsh like talc, either. My only complaint is the low sillage and lasting power. It is a skin scent alright, but it could have just a bit more presence so that I would not have to spray it multiple times during a day. I can see myself buying it again because I like having one perfume with this character in my collection, but I'm also curious about Chloe Nomade Absolue actually. 3.5 because of the projection and lasting power issue.

This is THE most sexy fragrance. It never fails to attract male attention. The weird thing is, it is a very female scent but it has a slightly masculine edge to it which makes it even better. Especially the EDT version has this. I was never a big fan of the For Her line but I have the EDP & the EDT, and also the Poudree version, that's how much I like this line by Narciso Rodriguez. Sillage & longevity are excellent for all three,

Be still my heart. This has to be one of the most natural, feminine and clean scents I’ve had the pleasure of sniffing. Think: waking up in a luxurious and plush bed where the sheets had been laundered and dried in a warm summer breeze. Before NR, I never liked musk. In my mind, musky scents were cheap, synthetic drugstore concoctions. I was SO wrong. This scent (and all the others in the range) is feminine and mature— a refreshing change from the onslaught of sickly, syrupy sweet releases aimed at teenage girls of recent years. Other reviews have commented that it’s more of a winter scent but I disagree. In warmer months, I will just apply with a lighter hand. Clean is always in style- no matter the season! Love it.
