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.
