Summary: It took me a while to review this one. I was holding out hope on it but I've finally thrown in the towel. I love the original AP, but as many reviewers note, you can't wear it everywhere. I thought a lightened version might be really awesome. It doesn't need to be a clone, just have the same sensibility, and I understand you can't use all the notes of the original, and just water them down.
Summary: Ok, hang on, am I crazy? ALL I smell are old-fashioned violet pastille-sweets, the kind I used to suck in exams at school. I take it violet is a main note? Anyway, I found this overpoweringly like powdering your body with crushed violet pastilles, and don't get why that is sexy AT ALL.
Excerpt: Agent Provocateur is a UK-based lingerie line; they released a fragrance of the same name in 2000. It was created by perfumer Christian Provenzano. The ingredients include saffron, coriander, rose, jasmine, magnolia, ylang ylang, gardenia, vetiver, amber and musk. It's an exotic, floral fragrance which comes in a lovely pink bottle. The smell is quite in-your-face, it's very seductive which is what the fragrance tries to promote; seductiveness.
Pros: Unique smell, nice bottle
Cons: Expensive, doesn't last, smell changes to some different altogether
