New Fragrance: Fendi L'ACQUAROSSA‏

The latest fragrance by the house of Fendi comes housed in an exquisite red and gold bottle, that feels every bit luxurious. It's heavy, sturdy and classy and the contrasting bold colours like red, gold and black only help in making it look very much classy and sophisticated.

It's inspired by Rome, Italian women and to basically celebrate fierce, strong and powerful women who dare to break the norm and live in fantasy. I like how the overall aura of the fragrance is kept bold and fierce yet feminine at the same time. I personally can't get on with over the top perfumes so this hits the middle ground just right.

As for the scent of it, it's one of the most complicated blend of perfumes I have ever come across. I can usually identify notes but for this particular one, I could only think, 'It smells amazing but I'll have to look up the notes'. What I could immediately narrow down was that it's primarily floral and woody notes that instantly ooze opulence. It's definitely a grown up perfume but at the same time is light and fresh so I'd reserve it for the day time.

You know how people have different fragrances reserved for different seasons of the year, I felt this is an all rounder which would be perfect to cheer up dark winter mornings or compliment long sunny days. I would feel a little under dressed wearing it for an occasion or a night out but it's a perfect one for those of you who are not looking to seek attention.

What I can smell is a nice concoction of orange, bergamot, rose, patchouli and musk. Apparently a gold and red flower is also used in one of the notes hence the colour of bottle. To me, it's a little sweet, a little musky and a tad bit fruity - just how I like it. I can see quite a few people liking the scent as it's quite universally loveable one.

The dry down of it is subtle and smokey and lasts quite a few hours on me compared to my usual perfumes. Albeit an expensive one, it would make the ultimate Christmas present and cheer up anybody's festive season.

Available exclusively at Harrods from September, it's definitely a one to look out for if you have a curious nose.
