What captured me most was the instant scent you get right when opening up the bottle. It comes off strong at first, but then subsides and becomes smoother. I get so many compliments every time I wear it and it is one fragrance that stays on all day and gets better as time passes. I have been searching for a while for something that can compete with my favorite fragrance and I think I may have found one. Gucci Premiere.
After she handed me the free samples, I walked over to the department store and started sniffing every bottle of perfume. Some were too sweet, which gives me headache, others too strong. Some smelt like old lady. Eee! I kept walking through the store until I stumbled upon the Gucci Premiere advertisement with Blake Lively. I thought to myself "ah, no harm in trying." I figured if they had a young actress in the ad, then it can't be that bad. I sprayed some onto a sample, and to my surprise it was actually quite good. I then sprayed it on my wrist and neck and, even better, it lasted all day.
I am still on the prowl for my perfect scent though. For now, I have my first competitor and we will see what tomorrow brings. ;)
