Narciso Rodriguez For Her is a chypre floral scent with a musky accord that prevents it from smelling too girlish and playful. It’s also quite strong, which can put some people off. If that’s you, you may appreciate L’Eau Narciso Rodriguez For Her, a newly launched, lighter version of the original.
Maybe even too light. L’Eau Narciso Rodriguez For Her is an ethereal skin scent that stays very close to the body, enveloping it in a veil of ineffable elegance. Because of how inoffensive it is, it could easily be worn even at the office. It is different from the original (and not just in the sillage), yet it resembles it, especially in the drydown.
The fragrance starts with a green chypre accord that, these days, makes for an unusual opening in a floral scent. The floral heart, which contains jasmine and peony, is dominated by rose and lily-of-the-valley. The rose and peony give the scent a smooth, creamy and powdery feel, while the lily-of-the-valley adds a watery touch to the composition. The scent becomes even more sensual and powdery in the drydown, as the musk and patchouli finally appear on the stage.
L’Eau Narciso Rodriguez For Her is very pleasant, but not as fresh as the name may lead you to believe. It’s actually more soapy, sensual and elegant, but in a modern, playful way. Yet, it lacks the personality of the original. This new take isn’t original at all, and lingers on the skin for only 5 short hours.
L’Eau Narciso Rodriguez For Her is a lighter version of Narciso Rodriguez For Her. Powdery, elegant and sensual, this musky floral scent stays very close to the skin. However, it lacks originality and staying power.
