Although I tend to be very loyal to the same fragrance and have been for a while, I always look forward to sampling new fragrances on the market. My latest sampling was the Versace Yellow Diamond perfume, body lotion and shower gel. Before getting into what I thought, I must first mention that I am drawn to really clean, fresh, light scents and anything outside of that realm seems overpowering to me.
I found the Yellow Diamond perfume to be very floral and fruity on my skin. The top notes includes Citron, Pear, Neroli and Bergamot, the middle notes are Freesia, Orange Blossom and Mimosa and the bottom notes are Amber, Wood and Musk.
I applied very little, but the fragrance was still pretty intense, after a while I swear I could taste the fragrance in the back of my throat. The perfumed body lotion was the same…much to intense for my liking. I did however like the perfumed shower gel. For some reason it did not seem as intense as the perfume and body lotion, it left a barely there, soft fragrance on my skin. However, I would only use the shower gel if I were going out at night and did not plan on using any other fragrance.
If you’re into floral, fruity scents I would recommend giving this a try, what I would not recommend is using the shower gel, body lotion and perfume at the same time…not unless you enjoy being swarmed by bees or are intentionally trying to dissuade any form of human contact. If you’ve worn this perfume, I’d love to know what you thought of it.
