Summary: Perfumes are nodes on pathways of perception. How did we get here? I arrived here at Loverdose via Basi Femme, La Petite Robe Noir and maybe even earlier via Kashaya. It was down from $70 dollars to $40 at one of those discount stands in a shopping centre, and I'm enjoying it hugely. There have been several compliments, notably from my Mum, who is a life-long Chanel girl. The truth is out there, whatever the marketing.
Summary: I confess; overlooking this, I was going to swimming-pool, and I was looking for something anonymous to wear (yes I'm strange), and took a 1 ml sample of this one, sent to me with a purchase of an other perfume. But when I sprayed... it's so strong! "Well, no matter, I' ll take a shower before entering the pool". Ahahah. It's been there for the whole training, but people with me didn't seem offended.
Summary: Nothing ground breaking for me unfortunately. This smells like your typical overly sweet perfume that you find everywhere. I get no licorice or spice everyone else seems to be picking up.. Weird. This one will be on my swap list soon.
Summary: I passed this several times in shops before I sampled it as although the bottle is undeniably pretty I associated the colour and style of the bottle with a fragrance that was aimed at teens. I assumed this would be another typical overly sweet gourmand type of scent with not much else going on.....and I was wrong! I kicked myself for not trying this beauty sooner and of course left the shop as the proud owner of a 50ml bottle of this gorgeous fragrance.
Summary: Even though I like this perfume, I wouldn't repurchase it. The liqourice and anise notes stand out a lot, which I don't mind but frankly a lot of people do. Some of my friends really disliked the scent so I didn't wear it whenever I hang out with them. The longevity and sillage are perfectly amazing, but I prefer wearing perfumes that are less obnoxious to people around me.
Summary: Hello My Loverdose! You sweet and edgy surprise encased in a beautiful Lilac glass heart shaped bottle. The romantic in me can never ignore ANYTHING in the shape of a heart, <3 and Loverdose is no exception. The show starts with a flourish as the trumpet section begins playing with a loud blast of anise, licorice, and bright citrus.
