Robert Cavalli Eau de Parfum Review
Here is Robert Cavalli's latest perfume offering. It is simply called Roberto Cavalli Eau de Parfum. Everything about the packaging is pure Cavalli - animal prints, luxury gold and a shot of turquoise. This can be a bit brash for some people and personally I lean towards the classic end of fashion design but the perfume is pure sophistication! The bottle itself echoes this with a beautiful Cavalli logo stopper and a good heavy glass bottle in a simple shape.
My wonderful partner bought this for me as one of my birthday presents after one of our shopping trips in Debenhams. After a spritz from the shop assistant I was really surprised by this scent. From the packaging I was expecting it to be overpowering and sweet, something along the lines of Thierry Mugler's Angel.
However, instead it has a classic scent that reminds me of older perfumes such as Tresor and Paris. This was exactly what I was looking for as I'm not a fan of overly sweet or fresh scents. I mean, who really wants to smell like freshly cut grass or a box of chocolates? Not me!
I prefer womanly, warm, grown up scents and this ticks all the boxes. It has top notes of orange blossom but it dries down to a gorgeous blend of benzoin, tonka and vanilla. Furthermore, this is only available as an Eau de Parfum which I love as Eau de Toilettes don't last 5 minutes on me and I like a fragrance that lingers on all day.
I think I have found my new signature scent! Though I'm pretty sure this ones not for everyone...
