We have known Sophie Paris for their lovely bags and quality makeups in a more affordable price and yes it’s true they have lot more to offer us including fragrances for men and women from body sprays to perfumes and one of it that I was able to appreciate is the Belladonna eau de parfum. Being a Sophie dealer, I make sure that I also use the products they have and see if they are good items. So far I did not have any trouble using their products especially their makeups and now I took the courage to try this perfume to know how great it is.
Well from the packaging, I can say that this looks elegant in a classic maroon box with gold inscriptions and its diamond-shaped cap combined with golden sprayer on the top of the square glass container. Right after I purchased this, I opened and sprayed a little on my wrist and loved the scent. The lady on the counter said that Belladonna is really fragrant and they only have one stock available that’s why I didn’t second guess if I would buy it or not. I was really satisfied with it for these reasons:
1. It is affordable, only Php 440 for 100 mL
2. The fragrance is feminine and classic, something that does not smell cheap but rather sophisticated florals with musky base.
3. The packaging is nice, I love the bottle and would definitely add to my collection.
4. The fragrance does not cause me to have headache and really long-lasting.
5. The sillage is moderate (can reach an arm distance).
I usually put perfume only in the morning, before I go to work and does not add anything during the mid day because I want its middle and base notes to come out as it stays longer and I’m happy that Belladonna was able to last the day. To calculate, it has a staying power of 10-12 hours from 6am before I go out til 6pm as I go home…well sometimes I go home a little bit late maybe up to 7pm and it still stays there without any additional spray since the morning. I would not want to make this my signature scent because I already have chosen Paris Hilton Heiress for that thing but I would love to use it for day to day especially if I want to save my expensive perfumes from running out. This is a must try fragrance if you want something affordable yet elegant smelling.
