As you walk through a room you leave a part of you behind, making heads turn and everyone asking," what kind of perfume are you wearing?" simply say CLIVE CHRISTIAN and they will not be able to duplicate you because this regal brand has special scents.X for women is much better than GUCCI RUSH for me.it has a subtle scent that is so feminine and yet seductive in a very exciting manner. Gorgeous,Lovely,Versatile, Irresistible, Voluptuous,Expensive and Classy.
A blend of crisp and fruity resins,evening flowers with base notes of vanilla and musk,makes a exotic and whimsical Chypre-Fruity which seems innocent at first but hints at unbridled sensuality later on. in fact It opens with a blast of pineapple,peach, bergamot and mandarin orange, middle notes bloom with a bouquet of rose, jasmine and lily-of-the-valley.the dry down consist of sensual vanilla and warm musk.
If the Gucci Rush dry down is silvery, X for women has a golden dry down.This head-turning fragrance can be dressed up or down for both Day and Evening wear.It is a all purpose scent.it is soft yet makes a statement. in my opinion X For Women is great for any time of the year from summer to winter.so lovely for a men when you spray it on your neck.this EDP makes a young lady more sophisticated and captivating.
Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
A very soft, very milky/lactonic peach, jasmine and white musk combination, which seems to be impressive in sillage, it has generated positive comments several times. It has an underlying butteriness which is charming. I can only relate to natural shea butter that has a slightly smokiness to it. X however lacks the sour component I find disturbing in smoke scent. The fruity aspect is balancing on the very ripe side with a honeyed sweetness and sometimes dangerously close to be rotten. The jasmine smells of high quality. Nasomatto Nuda feels like a close sibling. Nice done, but ultimately too linear and therefore boring to justify the price tag.
X is a peach perfume from beginning to end with leanings towards a gourmand scent at the very dry down .
It begins with this shampoo-esque peach note -bright and neon on my skin . It stays a bright peach for some time and then become a richer ,more delectable peach including the peach skin around about midway of the scent . I do not pick up muguet which is meant to be in there somewhere. At this point I thoroughly enjoy X perfume.
X is a loud perfume at the beginning only - dense but ultimately lacks longevity . The middle is a calm of that yummy peach , a ethereal sweet jasmine and then it gathers up force again with a clean patchouli /woods .
The ingredients are very good IMHO and it's a sexy scent . X has some interesting points but I would have to think 100 times before spending money on a scent that ultimately does not last longer than 2 hours before becoming so faint as to be hardly perceptible . No one else will smell it on you after 2 hours and you yourself will have to press your nose into your skin for a whiff of X.
I am giving X for Women a green thumbs up because to be fair - it IS a good scent overall but please, Clive Christian do something about that longevity . A scent of $ 355 plus tax for 50 mls should last longer than a scent like Coco Madamoiselle which has wonderful tenacity at $ 115 plus tax.
I love this perfume but hesitate and am disappointed with the lack of tenacity .
Despite the lack of tenacity - I bought it. Yes, i couldn't help it - I love the smell of it.
