Discover Duet, a dazzling scent duo that can be layered to unveil a multifaceted scent that lingers from day to evening. This is a stunning perfume! It comes in a heavy, double side glass bottle. One is the Radiant fragrance, which is the clearer, lighter coloured side. The other is the Sensual fragrance, which is the purple coloured side. It looks expensive and the weight of the bottle feels expensive.
So, let’s move on to the fragrances shall we. Radiant Fragrance Sparkling, Floral, Fruity Top notes are Sun-kissed Clementine, Blackcurrant Bud and Apple Blossom. Middle notes are Natural Jasmine Absolute, Pink Dawn Waterlily and Plush Peach Peony. Dry notes are Golden Amber, Skin Musk and Blonde Woods.
On first spray I can really smell the clementine and the apple blossom. Fresh, fruity, vibrant and extremely uplifting! At the heart of the fragrance is the waterlily, which unfolds to provide a juicy and uplifting scent, which when mixed with the delicious scents of the clementine and apple blossom, are quite heady and energetic.
As the fragrance settles down, the glowing warmth of the amber radiates elegance, while the extremely delicate scent of the musk adds an alluring femininity. During the dry down, the woods adds a depth that compliments all the scents. It is delightful!
Sensual Fragrance Addictive, Floral, Woody Top notes are Bergamot Twist, Wild Purple Plum and Pink Peppercorn. Middle notes are Night Blooming Jasmine, White Dusk Waterlily and Scarlet Rose. Dry notes are Patchouli Heart, Cocoa Woods and Addictive Praline Musk.
A captivating journey begins with the tantalising scents of bergamot and plum. I love the added scent of the peppercorn which provides an unexpected yet delightful accent. The exquisite waterlily is at the heart, with a beguiling scent with creamy and fruity undertones. Add the tantalising smell of jasmine and rose, the combination adds yet another mysterious quality. As the fragrance unfolds, sultry musk and addictive patchouli enthrals the senses.
During the dry down all I can smell is the extremely attractive woods, which adds a sense of mystery and is quite captivating. You could get lost in this fragrance. It takes you on a journey as you explore the different facets of the same flower, each with its own floral, fruity and woody combinations.
The term sillage is used to describe the scented trail left by the fragrance wearer. Longevity refers to how long a fragrance lasts once applied. This fragrance offers excellent sillage and longevity. The sillage is beautifully radiant, enough to tickle noses around you and get many compliments. The dry down is spectacularly long and full and is my choice for longevity.
This is definitely in my books, a signature fragrance.
