Is Narciso Rodriguez's New Fragrance a Must-Have?

It’s been so hot out the past week in Los Angeles that the last thing I’ve wanted to do was spritz on a heady fragrance so I had to wait on featuring the latest from NARCISO RODRIGUEZ. Well it’s now cooled down a tad and since we’re making the transition out of light and airy fragrances to ones more suited for fall, it’s time to talk about 'Narciso' Eau de Parfum ($95/1.6oz, $112/3oz only @ nordstrom.com).

I know I’ve shown you my fragrance, I guess you would call it a collection at this point, in previous posts but in case you forgot … voila!

I think I end up adding a bottle to my perfume shelf only every few months as I have a pretty discerning nose that likes unique and mostly bold. I’ll give each one I come across a nice trial but if it’s not love, it goes to a friend that can give it some.

So how did this one fare? It’s funny because the first few times I wore it, I was really liking it and then about the 4th time, I spritzed some on, went out my biz and about 30 minutes later was not in the mood for it. That’s the only way I can describe it!

This is Mr. Rodriguez’s forth scent creation in the marketplace and this one seems to be a beautiful follow to the others, that have done quite well, I might add.

This one is described as a woody musk, with top notes of gardenia and white rose, middle of musk all on a base of vetiver, white cedar extract and cedar. Yes, it’s heavy on the base notes and my nose had a hard time detecting the top notes.

His goal with this fragrance was to create one that was intoxicating and sensual and I think he succeeded and I might goes as far to say that it seems unisex. So does this one go on my perfume shelf? You betcha!

This also comes in a Scented Body Lotion ($54/6.7oz) and a Musc Oil Perfume ($155/1.6oz).
