Summary: I fell in love with this perfume 7 years ago when I bought it going through custom's heading for my first over sea's trip. It is no longer sold in NZ. I was told it was a limited addition, so was over the moon when I seen it for sale on the internet as the last drop of what I had left was used just a few weeks ago.
Summary: I get more compliments from men men men ... and the ladies too.... over and over through the years... about how good I smell... also those who are sensitive to strong smells tell me that with this perfume that is not the case.... a light/sexy sent.... have worn it daily for several years now...
Summary: It's a flanker of Red Door in name only, so don't let that put you off ... Red Door Velvet is a sweet musky fragrance that really does remind me of velvet. It wears similar ot SJP Lovely on me. One of the key differences between Velvet & Lovely (and her sisters, like NR Her): Velvet has a more organic, sweet, earthy musk, whereas Lovely a more synthetic, pink plastic dollhead musk. Velvet & Lovely are smell-alikes on me after the 30-minute mark.
Excerpt: I have used the odd Elizabeth Arden Perfume, but it was mostly Sunflowers that I used. After all that is the scent that I love a lot, and before I smelt that one I felt that this brand of Perfume was more for older people.
Summary: If RD Velvet is a fruity-floral, then it's a fruity-floral MUSK. It's just a tad powdery, and almost cloying sweet before it dries. I'm not fond of the opening cacophony of notes; it's very strange. But after that, it's like-like, maybe love. OK, love. I've been sniffing myself the last 4 hours and just reapplied - when dry, I could swear I sensed it ... yes, velvet. RD Velvet is frequently compared to Lovely, Prada, and Rodriquez Her.
