Kylie Minogue 'Darling' Perfume Review!

Friday, June 15, 2012
This perfume was a gift last year and it is my second bottle of this perfume now, both were received as gifts - maybe they are trying to tell me something...

The fragrance I have currently is the 75ml eau de toilette version, although I have had a smaller bottle as well. I am not to impressed with the bottle for this fragrance as it looks a bit boring and cheap in my opinion. The glass section of the bottle looks ok and it has a petrol like finish on the glass. Although the plastic black cap looks awful and it scratches easily, which makes the bottle look really cheap and poorly made. 

The fragrance itself is composed of the following notes: lily, passion fruit, freesia, sandalwood and vanilla. The fragrance is categorised as a oriental floral. In my opinion the main scent I can detect from the perfume is that of musky floral notes with some sweetness.

Initially when I first spray this fragrance onto my skin all I can smell is musky notes, which I am not that fond of but then the floral notes come through after a few minutes. The floral notes are no where near as strong as I would like them to be and the musky notes are a bit strong, in my opinion. The sweetness of the vanilla comes through well and it does make the perfume nicer overall. In terms of longevity and the strength of the perfume I am disappointed as the strength overall of this fragrance is really quite weak and it only really lasts on clothing, not skin. Overall I am disappointed with this fragrance and I will not purchase it - although this fragrance is priced quite reasonably, in my opinion. 

Bottle: 2/5
Notes: 3/5
Strength: 2/5
Longevity: 2/5
Price: 4/5

Overall rating of 3/5!
