One of Shiseido’s more popular Asian brands, Majolica Majorca, and a favorite of mine, has a very small Holiday Collection this year. The selection features a fragrance oil, nail polish, and a new red mascara. I picked up two of the items on a whim since I adore the brand.
I imagine their Holiday Collection is so tiny because they are gearing up for a larger Spring release. Happy Days!
But we are in full Holiday mode so let’s worry about that first.
Today I have Majolica Majorca Majoromantica to review for you!
Let’s have a look!
Seductive, sweetly scented perfume oil!
Part of the appeal of Majolica Majorca Majoromantica is the packaging. I found the red bottle and signature gold MJ emblem on the topper very sweet. It reminds me of an old glass alchemy bottle and looks quite lovely on my vanity. It is indeed glass so you do have to be careful with this as if you drop it, it will indeed shatter.
The topper has an attached wand for application so you simply twist it off and dot the wand on your pulse points. It’s obviously a fragrance oil blend so a little goes quite a long way and the fragrance has a good throw and a linger. You can easily swipe it on and get through an entire day still smelling of the sweet, sultry scent!
My nose doesn’t catch the notes that MJ claims are in this fragrance. Berry, citrus, rose, sandalwood and vanilla. I’m not sure how they successfully blended it but it comes across girlish yet sexy, sweet yet mysterious. It’s interesting. Those who generally like sweet, fruity blends with a little edge will enjoy this. I don’t particularly get rose or berry but I do get something sweet with a splash of citrus touches of vanilla and a dominate sandalwood note that adds mystery. It’s a rather gorgeous blend and would work well in a mist or spray form.
Only bad thing I can say is I wish it came in bigger bottle and wasn’t limited edition!
- Those who enjoy sweet, fruity blends!
- Majolica Majorca fans!
- Those who prefer fragrance oils!
- Anyone who gets emotionally attached to fragrances (it’s only around for the Holidays).
- Anyone who isn’t interested in “tracking” beauty down (this is available within Asia only so E-bay and online shops are the only way to get it).
I liked Majoromantica alot. It’s a very me fragrance and should appeal to those who like fresh fruity, sweet blends but also those who like scents that are sexy, sultry, and mysterious. Although MJ is a very girlish brand this scent is very womanly however it has some contrast of sweetness as well!
I’ll be purchasing a back up.
Very Muse Approved for purchase!
