Very pretty, fuity, but mature, perfume which mellows into a lovely sensual, soft vanilla-tinted drydown. The only problem is this just doesn't last on me - after half an hour I can hardly detect it at all. I like my perfumes to last at least a few hours, so I would not consider buying it, which is a shame because it is lovely.
Jewels of Blu is so beautiful. If you love aldehyde like No. 5, Touch by Burbury, Gucci Rush, than you would love this fragrance.
Very feminine. The opening is sweet, the heart is sweet and very aquatic, and the basenotes are subtle vanilla. I didn't detect patchouli on my skin. Highly recommended for those of you like sweet scent.
Juicy and summery, yet deep. The topnotes, unmistakably, are sweet peach nectar, and fleshy, syrupy apricot. Pink pepper (rose de mai) adds a very subtle kick, that doesn't come through for very long. The heart of the fragrance is a calm, very "blue" smelling jasmine, not unlike Ralph Lauren Blue. Please don't think I'm suggesting Blu smells like RL Blue; it's just that its jasmine is watery, and cool. Jewels of Blu is far more complex than RL Blue, and instead of being a soft floral, it's sultry and exotic. Vanilla and patchouli are blended so perfectly, and are integrated so exquisitely into the other notes, that they remain secretive. If patchouli isn't to your liking, you will never know it's in Jewels of Blu; it's used to support the other notes, not to take the stage. A sensual musk rounds out Jewels of Blu, ensuring that it cannot be a cheerful fruity floral. This is an intriguing perfume that's bound to get many comments and compliments. Like all the Aqabas, the packaging is exquisite: a woven cane box containing a tinted glass, jeweled bottle.
