Ring My Bella

Is the newest addition to Benefit's Crescent Row Perfumes. The Box is designed to look like a lingerie shop and the character Bella is supposed to look after it hence the scent represents her personality.

I quite like the idea, its pretty innovative and cute and for some reason I had no idea Benefit did perfumes until my recent visit at their Boutique.





Being the uber funky brand it is, the packaging is the stunner here, both the outer cardboard as well as the fragrance bottle itself.

The gold bottle is inspired from Annie and Maggie of Benefit whose aunt(if I am not wrong!) used to have a similar gin and tonic bottle. How cool is that eh?



The fragrance itself is sexy and seductive, quite an evening scent I would say. Although some one like me who wears Thierry Mugler's Angel as a day perfume would like to wear this in the day too. It is very Angel-esque if you've ever had a whiff of that, just less heavy and more refreshing.

I can immediately smell lily and roses when initially sprayed on to the skin. It's floral and fruity at the same time. I however like the musky drydown though as it smells of patchouli, vanilla and musk.

They have quite a few additions in their Crescent Row fragrances based on fictional characters and all of them smell particularly distinct. Not at all like the ones on your usual Superdrug or Boots counter.

I feel the way the ingredients are layered in the scent is what makes them unique and leaves people wondering as to what you're wearing.

Next time you're at a Benefit counter or boutique, surely give these a sniff. They are pretty affordable at £29.50 for a 30ml EDT.

@Joselin - Totally agree! It is really confusing at the counter. This and Hooked on Carmella are my fave :)
