I remember my Mum first bought me this fragrance when I was about 14. I have been bound to it since. Launched in 1983, Paris has been one of those classic fragrances that will always be on someone's shelf. Photo'd here, I have the Eau de Toilette (as it was on offer in Boots) but all the bottles from the Eau de Parfum to this bottle are very art deco and striking. As I've mentioned in previous posts, I am rubbish when it comes to explaining base notes and heart notes and the like. To me, if it smells good and I like it, then I buy it! But with Paris, you don't have to understand fragrances to be able to detect the gorgeous smell of rose. It's almost like rose with a twist, as you get some citrus fragrance, but also some musk. It is elegant and sophisticated, yet shows a bit of sassy fun underneath which I love.
Paris (EDT) usually sells at around £33, but I got it today at Boots in the sale at £22 - it was too good an opportunity to miss, and stock up on one of my favourite fragrances of all time. I get through about 4 of these bottles a year so I'm looking forward to spritzing it on myself in the morning! J'adore Paris!
