Pleasure delight by Estee Lauder has a fruity, very sweet, and strong vanilla scent.
It is a floral-fruity type of perfume.
The strawberry scent is very noticeable. However, the perfume can be a little overwhelming.
The notes are as follows:
Top notes : Freesia, Strawberry, Pomegranate, Green Notes
Middle notes : Lily, Lily-of-the-Valley, Heliotrope, Peony
Base notes : Rose, Vanilla, Caramel, Patchouli,
I really do enjoy this fragrance, coming from a guy and smelling it on someone else, the top notes are wonderful, and the overall smell is so nice, especially when the people walks by and you get a subtle smell of it again, its such a warm smell, and much, much softer than the original pleasures and a younger smell in my opinion, I wish they did a pleasures for men delight, because I would most certainly buy it.
My personal favourite Estee Lauder perfume, other than Beautiful Love, which in my opinion is a compromise between Pleasures and Beautiful.
Estee Lauder and myself tend to have our ups and downs. I rather enjoy her older and more classic fragrances, however the more recent fragrances often get bad reviews from me.
Pleasures Delight is one of her scents that I do like.
This fragrance is very gourmand. It's mostly rich caramel, strawberry icecream, marshmallow, pulpy pomegranate and sugared rose petals.
The scent in my opinion is a little strong and often headache inducing, especially if over-applied. Because of its thick and syrupy, candy-like structure, Pleasures Delight won't appeal to everyone. In some instances it reminds me of Fantasy by Britney Spears and Fancy by Jessica Simpson.
When this fragrance was released there was a massive trend for sweet scents, however recently there has been more of a need for soapy and refreshing scents. So evidently this fragrance wouldn't be as popular as it may have been, however for those of you that do love gourmands, especially those with a strong caramel note, Pleasures Delight may indeed delight you.
I loved this at first, but now when I use it, it smells way too sweet for me. It's not horrible, but I wouldn't buy it again.
Anything less like the original Pleasures I can't imagine. Perhaps people with a more developed sense of smelling individual notes could educate me on the similarities but I just don't get it. To me the original is fresh and clean, this is pure raspberry cheesecake and caramel. It's gorgeous but easy to overdo. One spray and people in the office downstairs were wondering if I'd opened a cake shop. I can even smell this when I have a cold!
One of my all time favorites but having had a few bottles now, why on earth can't Lauder make a lid that stays on? Do they not test these things being thrown about in a bag? Or perhaps they assume one spray in the morning is enough and there is no need for it to leave the house?
