Tonight I indulged in a cool shower to freshen up my day and sprayed on a little bit of my delicate eau de toilette for babies.. Yes you read it right… For babies. But I would like to share a review regarding a vintage fragrance that I have… Well, it was first launched back in 1993, I supposed it is already vintage, after all its scent is one of a kind. I’m referrinv to Revlon Charlie Red for Women eau de toilette.
Top notes are orange blossom, gardenia, plum, black currant, violet and peach; middle notes are carnation, tuberose, orchid, jasmine, ylang-ylang, lily-of-the-valley and rose; base notes are honey, sandalwood, amber, musk and cedar.
Obviously it is a floral oriental scent that has a sophisticated impression upon first spray, and dries into powdery notes after some hours and I guess it is because of the musk. The middle notes and the base notes I can say are the ones that make impression to this perfume and does not change that much in time, I mean, even if the base notes are already unfolding, the middle notes are still noticeable. I like its longevity because when I applied in the morning, then there’s no need to reapply in the afternoon and in the evening and that I can save a lot. The sillage is moderate and I can smell it on my clothes throughout the day. I used to apply it directly on my skin (neck, pulse points on arms) and also on my clothes, and so far did not get any skin irritation from it, nor headache. I love the jasmine and ylang-ylang, they are really prominent in this perfume and is really feminine. It is also affordable for a full-sized 100ml bottle so I will buy again next time. The quality is really good, the packaging is just really simple.
All in all, I am satisfied with its quality, price, volume and packaging.
