Fragrance Find - Narciso Rodriquez NARCISO EDP

As we're heading into Fall, there are the usual slew of new fragrances and flankers coming across my desk to review.  But it was a chance discovery at Bloomingdales that now has me raving about Narciso Rodriguez Narciso Eau de Parfum for Fall.

I really liked Narciso's first fragrance, Narciso Rodriguez For Her Eau de Parfumso when I came across Narciso Rodriguez NarcisoI thought I might have an idea what this might smell like (admittedly without having previously seen any fragrance notes or advertising).

But not only were my expectations shattered after my first spritz, but I found myself completely transported and in love - and purchased it on the spot.

This fragrance is very sexy, sensual and yes - unique.  The opening notes started out on me with a very fresh, authentic floral combination of gardenia and rose.  Then the heart of scent came through - equally musky and woody,  but with a very "creamy" feel. After the first hour, the floral notes warmed up more and it also became slightly powdery. 

But it was really how Narciso Rodriguez Narciso continued to develop and linger during the day that was so impressive.  There were more light, powdery notes, in addition to a comforting fragrance note I can only say smelled "nutty" - which was really different.  The staying power was over 6+ hours on me, and the dry down was soft, still creamy, with a very dry, cedar feel.  The silage was very good, but I never felt like the scent was entering the room before me.

The compliments poured in whenever I wore Narciso.  I found myself using it during the day, weekends and at night.  For the Fall, and into the colder months, Narciso Rodriguez Narciso is a wonderful, feminine scent, and will stay in my fragrance rotation for the foreseeable future. 

P.S. If you have a real fragrance lover in your life - BUY Narciso for them as a gift. It just may become their new signature scent :) - RLB
