Summary: I was very excited to try this perfume because i love mature sexy scents. However, when i smelled this, i almost passed out! It is very strong at first and some what nauseating. I sprayed a little on and my sister said "who smells like a grandma?" haha. I'm pretty sure this would scare men away instead of attract them!
Summary: I have such a love/hate relationship with this perfume! I'm a massive Agent Provocateur fan and have a ton of their lingerie, so I couldn't wait to try this when it was launched. My first impressions were not good - it was too musky, too overpowering, had too much rose, and it felt kind of old ladyish. I thought it was trying to be retro for the sake of it -and was a bit try hard (in that 'i wear a 50s conical bra' kind of way).
Summary: I just adore this. It makes me feel like a forties screen goddess (so much so that I usually wait until I have my hair up and am wearing Russian Red lippie to put this on). It smells musky and is remiscent of a cross between Chanel Number 19 and Number 5 (which I know everyone says is an oldies perfume but I love it anyway). Don't test this anywhere but on the skin, as it smells different on everyone I know. It is delicious on them all though!
Summary: If I were stranded on a desert island and could only have one perfume, this would be it. My skin eats perfume, but this one at least hangs on for a while. AP is NOT for the faint of heart. It was produced by a lingerie company if that tells you anything. This one, at least on me, is a dark rose/woods scent, unlike anything I have ever tried.
Summary: I love this perfume, I love the bottle, I love wearing it. The best way I know to check if a perfume is right (because sometimes I like the fragrance, but it doesn't like me in return) is to have someone touched by it when I am wearing it. Well, it happened with Agent Provocateur. I saw the person was sincerely impressed. I am happy because it's been a while since I last found something that got me a compliment in terms of perfumery.
Summary: I have heard many people say they can´t stand it. They call it masculine and old-ladysmelling. To my nose this is a breathtaking beauty. The musk in combination with rose and a hint of tobacco is stunning. The drydown is to die for. Love it!
Summary: Nice spicy and soapy musky saffron is the predominant note on my skin then I also get the cedary florals. I love this one. It's very sexy and sultry. I agree with the reviewer who said this was "clean and sexy, but dirty and erotic at the same time". This scent and Dolce and Gabbana pour Femme are my go-to power perfumes. The one's I wear when I want to feel powerful and confident. This has great sillage and it lasts a very long time on the skin.
Summary: So the opening is a smack in the face, pungent and not too pleasant. From my experience and reading all the perfume blogs, it is these rather nasty openings that grow into the classics. I'm thinking CK Obession and Guerlain's Shalimar. (Btw it has a similarly powdery feel to both of those so if they're are not to your taste ...) It is a lovely powdery rose with a hint of green to keep it from going all too sweet, and then it becomes a bit sweaty and dirty.
Summary: The EDP is intially a burst of honeyed rose petals and intense leather. After 20 minutes its leather, patchouli, honey, cedar, warm amber, with hints of smoky oak, musk and white pepper. Staying power is 3 - 4 hours on me. The opening floral is simple rose. Not a powdery floral rose you might expect like Versace Baby Rose Jeans or Bulgarian rose oil. Its a honeyed rose with hints of citrus. Some of my real roses are similar.
