Yves Rocher is a brand I’m not too familiar with but my mother has used a few of their products. This fragrance reinterprets the original Flowerparty eau de parfum with a twist of spice marketed as a night perfume. I haven’t smelt the original one so unfortunately I cannot compare the two.
Once sprayed, I can instantly smell the alcohol thanks to my super, sensitive nose but once it dies down and softens, it’s a sweet, fruity gourmand, velvety scent without the sickly feeling, yet there isn’t much floral aroma as the name suggests. I can smell the liquorice note, giving it depth, preventing it being too sweet and adding a hint of spice, however I cannot really smell the almond nor the bourbon vanilla notes. I absolutely love vanilla scents but I was slightly disappointed with this. It doesn’t stop me from wearing it though.
It’s not too heavy as I’ve been wearing this on a daily basis recently and am surprised at how long lasting this is. Lasts longer than some of my favourite perfumes. It’s suited for day to night transition fragrance, date night or a even general night out. If you’re looking for a mature, professional scent, this isn’t the one for you. If you want to feel young and feminine with a sexy touch, then this is the one for you. The ombre bottle and the flower cap, it definitely adds a nice touch to my dressing table.
It’s currently half price at £19. Definitely a steal for yourself or as a stocking filler. This is creeping up to become one of my top favourites.
