Agent Provocateur Aphrodisiaque Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Agent Provocateur Aphrodisiaque Eau De Parfum. This fragrance contains the following notes: white pepper, blackberry and jasmine (top notes), honey, vanilla orchid and night blooming cereus (heart notes), and resins and musk (base notes).

Aphrodisiaque is meant to be a sexy fragrance – but it isn’t. Aphrodisiaque smells like a watered-down version of the fragrances my grandmother used to wear in the 1980s.

I’d describe the fragrance as wannabe old-fashioned. To me, it smells cold, balsamic and smokey with a touch of powdered white flowers and sugar. I’m saying sugar water and not honey because the sweet note is neither well-rounded nor warm. Unfortunately, Aphrodisiaque is also rather thin and fleeting, so there’s not much of a fragrance development.

To my surprise, my husband actually likes this fragrance on me (unfortunately, he can’t describe what he’s smelling), so I’m wearing it for him when we’re both at home. Otherwise, I would have given it away. If you’re interested, Agent Provocateur Aphrodisiaque Eau De Parfum is available as 40ml and 80ml. I paid £12.98 for the 40ml.

Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink Eau De Parfum which I’ve been wearing for the past 2 weeks now. This fragrance has the following notes: tangerine, yuzu and whipped cream (top notes), datura, white camellia and pink lotus (heart notes), and bamboo, musk and black saffron (base notes).

I found this fragrance to be a huge disappointment. Fatale Pink is remarkably faint, and it doesn’t last for more than 30 minutes on me. I’m almost halfway through a 100ml bottle after 2 weeks – ridiculous. What little I can smell is nice enough – citrus and a whiff of pink flowers. However, I wouldn’t recommend this fragrance for obvious reasons.

Agent Provocateur Fatale Pink Eau De Parfum is available as 30ml, 50ml and 100ml. I paid £19.07 for the 100ml.

Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about a fragrance I started to wear just a few weeks ago – Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum. This fragrance was a blind-buy for me. I’ve never smelled it before, but the 50ml bottle was under £15, and the notes sounded promising.

And those notes are pink pepper, mango and blackcurrant (top notes), gardenia, orris and patchouli (heart notes) and musk, vanilla orchid, chocolate and labdanum (base notes). Sounds nice, doesn’t it?

To make a long story short – the fragrance is nice! Very nice actually! On my skin, it’s mainly patchouli, musk and blackcurrant with a touch of powder (orris) and a hint of chocolate. I love it! On my clothes it’s vanilla, chocolate and patchouli. This is lovely too! Whilst this fragrance isn’t particularly longlasting, I don’t mind spraying it every few hours. I love the rich and slightly bitter blackcurrent note that I get with every spray. It’s really beautiful, and it works well with the patchouli and the musk.

I think this is a great fragrance for people who are just getting into musk and patchouli in perfumes. It’s not a real chypre, but it’s also not a random fruity patchouli fragrance (of which there are too many). It’s a modern and wearable composition; definitely suitable for men as well. And despite the name – Fatale – it’s a well-behaved (almost tame) fragrance that’s perfectly suitable for the office.

Based on my experience, I’d recommend this fragrance! Agent Provocateur Fatale Eau De Parfum is available as 30ml, 50ml and 100ml.  I’ve got a 50ml, but I’ve already ordered a 100ml as a back-up.
