YOUNG AT HEART
Desigual is a Spanish fashion brand I have heard of before and have seen it’s stores whilst in Spain. They have their own range of fragrances and this is one of them. This is a part of their Sex, Fun and Love range where each perfume is designed by different perfumer. Fun is designed by Christophe Raynaud of Givaudan, known to have designed many scents for brands such as Paco Rabanne, Celine, Kenzo etc.
Fun is a fruity floral scent, with the top notes consisting of juicy cranberry with mouth watering nashi pear and white peach; at the heart, exotic passion fruit, pretty violet and peony; and with the bottom notes of bright santal and teak wood. Upon initial spray, there is a whiff of alcohol but it will evaporate and leave a slight sour scent which will phase out into a lovely fruity concoction. The main note I can smell is the juicy white peach from the initial spray to the settling down. There is a slight hint of the violet and peony but it’s barely noticeable. This is more on the fruity side but it doesn’t make you smell like food and is not overly sweet.
I would say the scent is more aimed at the younger females but if you love fruity scents, this is the one. This definitely is a fun, happy scent, easily a summer scent and will make you feel young at heart. Unfortunately, fruity scents isn’t something I would go for. I don’t dislike it but it’s not to my taste and gives me a slight headache. If you’re looking for something that is more sexy and or classy/mature, stay away from this. I love how the packaging reflects the fun theme as well as the lid having decorative textile top.
