Hands up, who envys the beautiful women read and seen in James Bond movies and/or books? But don’t worry, recently we can at least smell like one of those beauties. 007 For Women Eau de Parfum was released earlier this year and I was lucky enough to receive a PR sample from Rossmann. I’m surprised that I really do like the scent, although I can be really picky about that. Even more, I fell in love with the velvet beauty case in which the perfume arrived at my doorstep!
007 For Women belongs to the James Bond Fragnances, as you might have guessed from its name. Three James Bond Fragnances for Men have been released so far and there is also one limited edition available, but I didn’t expect them starting to release women perfume, too. I was wrong! According to the product description this perfume “embodies the dangerously seductive nature of the Bond Woman. Conveying the mysterious allure of these enigmatic women, the scent is a modern interpretation of the mysterious oriental fragrances worn by women throughout the last century.”. Sounds promising!
The packaging design of the perfume bottle is black and elegant. The neck of the bottle is designed to look like a woman’s neck, the rosegold ring reminds of a necklace. The bottom part of the bottle is shaped like diamond crystal. The scent of the 007 For Women Eau de Parfum consists of these notes:
Top: Bergamot, Black Pepper, Rose Milk
Heart: Blackberry, Gardenia, Jasmine
Base: Black Vanilla, Cedarwood, White Musk
The scent is on the sweet and fruity side. Not as sweet as Thierry Mugler’s Angel for example, but there are some similarities in the ingredients like Bergamo and Vanilla. I think it is the Black Pepper giving this perfume a bit of spicey hint, as well as the White Musk. Compared to Angel it is much less intense and has not that super sweetness, but the similarities make it a possible alternative for daily wear.
All in all, I’m positively surprised by this perfume! If you like sweet perfumes, which are a bit more on the heavy sideand not sporty or fresh you will like this perfume, too. It is availablein different sizes, reaching from 30 to 100 ml, and what I like especially about it, it will be available for around 25 € for 50 ml in local drugstores…..By the way, do you have any ideas what I should use the beauty case for?
