007 for Women EDP: Review

"007 for women?" you may be thinking, don't worry I thought the same. Released after the popularity of the male 007 fragrance, this scent "embodies the dangerously seductive nature of the Bond Woman". I immediately drooled at the box and the black quilted style bottle with rose gold details. No doubt that this would look beautiful on any dressing table.

Top Notes

Black Pepper

Middle Notes

Jasmine and Blackberry

Base Notes

Black Vanilla Husk, White Musk and Cedar

After first spraying, the black pepper is strong but settles down to reveal the sweet, musky scent with a fruity edge. Definitely more grown-up and sexy than the many sweet and fruity scents on the market, however what lets 007 for Women down is the lasting power. Although this is an EDP, I can spray it multiple times then an hour or so later I'm left with a very faint smell. Even my boyfriend could hardly smell it with his nose pressed to my neck! Not so great for a potential Bond girl. My main annoyance with perfumes is that they don't last well, especially when they're from premium brands and at a premium price, and because I love the scent I'm sad that I don't feel this lasts. However that is only my experience so like with any perfume I'd suggest trying it out in a store and seeing if it lasts/develops well on your skin.
