Hi Fragrance Fanatics! Abercrombie and Fitch have dropped two gorgeous new scents and I have all the details. As you probably know, I like to use the fragrances for a while and get to know them before I write my review, so I have been using these perfumes for some time now.
First up is First Instinct Sheer, the sophisticated new member of the First Instinct family and is described as a fragrance for women who “trust their instincts and follow their passions.
The colour palette is very chic, the box is a soft gold and the bottle is filled with a golden yellow liquid and accented with soft, rose-gold details.
he fragrance opens with bergamot, pink pepper and air accords and flows into the heart which blends together orange blossom, hibiscus and lily of the valley. The base is a mix of musks, creamy woods and amber. Overall it is a really powdery, soft fragrance which is just right for work. It wears for 5-6 hours.
The other one is called Authentic and it has become one of my favourites. It is a delectable, fruity floral fragrance that stays with you throughout the day! The bottle is very simple and both the box and the actual perfume is a trendy, light pink shade. The branding is on a soft, satin ribbon – such a cute detail!
Authentic’s top notes are a burst of pear, mandarin, orange and redcurrant. Lily, magnolia and nectarines make up the heat and the fragrance settles into cedarwood, sandalwood and ambrette seed at the base.
The real stars of Authentic are the mandarin and nectarine which give it a sensual, juicy aroma that lingers for the longest time. The wear is definitely 6 hours+ because I keep getting whiffs of delicious scent throughout the day. Its definitely true, Authentic love! 😉
I love Abercrombie fragrances as they’re really good value for money to and these are both Eau de Parfums. They retail for R1195 and you can find them at Foschini stores!
Until next time
Love and sparkles
