Desigual Love Eau de Toilette
Desigual is the fastest growing international fashion brand and they have now launched their first fragrances featuring bright, retro designs - Sex, Love and Fun. The bottles are designed to represent the characteristic prints from the fashion houses. Each fragrance was created by an illustrious, experienced fragrance designer who count the brands Kenzo, Guerlain and Dolce & Gabbana among their customers. All three fragrances are exclusive to The Fragrance Shop. 

I have the *Desigual Love EDT (RRP £29, 50ml - £17 sale) which contains the following notes: cranberries, blackcurrants, grapefruit, orange blossom, benzoin resin, praline, sandalwood and tonka bean - the latter notes are definitely favourites of mine. 

I have to be honest and say that the bottle is not to my taste, it is bright, colourful and fun but I think it is quite young for me personally although I think it is aimed more for teens and young adults. The design is very 60's inspired, in my opinion, which I think will appeal to a lot of people.

The fragrance initially is musky and floral but also quite sweet and fruity, it is on first impressions a generic fragrance and quite strong but I actually don't own anything quite like it. I love the more musky and floral notes; the juicy summer fruity notes do dissipate after an hour or so into a more musky, vanilla and powdery fragrance which I really like. I definitely prefer the fragrance on my skin after a hour or two but that it just my preference. The overall longevity on my skin is about five hours which I think is great for an EDT. 

Overall, I love how the fragrance transitions from a bold fruity, floral fragrance to a musky, floral and powdery fragrance - I prefer the fragrance after a few hours on my skin. The bottle and fragrance are aimed at a younger audience in my opinion; although obviously there are no age restrictions on fragrance and you should wear what you want. I'm surprised at the fantastic longevity! Also the price is very reasonable and I think a lot of young women would really like it. Overall rating: ★★★★☆, 4/5. 

Have you tried this fragrance?

  1. The design of the bottle is really lovely! The musky, floral, powdery scent sounds like the kind of thing I'd really like too.

  5. This sounds really lovely! I definitely think I'd prefer it after the floral notes fade as I'm also a big fan of vanilla musky scents xx
