Dude, did you hear…
Ok, ’nuff celebrity gossip for today.
As you know Kat Von D’s Fall Collection 2010 consists of a brand new fragrance from the tattooed goddess, entitled Adora. I just wanna say I adora you all…ha! Sorry that was screaming for me to play on it.
This is Kat’s third scent with Saint and Sinner being part of the original release. I’ve only casually sniffed both Saint and Sinner and I know you’ve wanted reviews of them for a while now, promise I’ll get on that soon.
Adora means “beloved one” in Latin which is what this fragrance is all about, a romantic, sensually sweet blend of fruits and floral.
A new fragrance from tattoo artist Kat Von D.
Adora is a scent that should appeal to those who like a bit of sweet mixed in with their florals. It’s alot of fruity with a heavier, sweet floral base and hints of musk and wood to give it a slightly richer edge. For the most part Adora definitely falls into the realms of scents I enjoy using. It has enough sweetness to keep me happy without giving off an immature vibe and it also has a seductive sophistication that makes it wearable for either evening or day.
The fragrance starts off with juicy tops notes of lychee and boysenberry and I personally feel these stick around far into the dry down. The scent remains true to being sweet but notes of hyacinth and jasmine create a mellow floral vibe that edges on seductive a bit of mango which rounds these florals off and morphs them into a very pretty blend. Wood and musk give the fragrance more of a sensual body.
It smells rather gorgeous to me and can easily be used for day time or evening since the fruit notes give it a certain playfulness.
I tried the rollerball and I honestly don’t recommend it as a single purchase. It feels best purchased with a full bottle of the scent and toting around the rollerball for touch ups as the rollerball isn’t nearly as potent as a full bottle of fragrance is. So it’s best kept as something to tote around for touch ups in my opinion!
- Those who like sweet, fruity floral blends!
- Kat Von D fans (her fans will want in on this I’m sure)
- Anyone who likes more complex, darker scents and expects the scent to mimic Kat’s ‘tude (this is more playful and flirty for Kat).
I enjoyed this one very much and I’ll be purchasing a full bottle for sure. The scent is really a me kinda blend and should end up gracing the vanities of those who enjoy fruity floral perfumes. Celeb perfumes can be annoying sometimes but Kat’s makeup and fragrance line brings out my goth membership and makes me want to purchase it all because of it’s rough around the edge rocker feel and look.
Anyone try it?
