Eau De Parfum: Calvin Klein Beauty

If given the chance, would you go for a designer perfume or a celebrity's? I have a friend who is very much into fragrances, especially celebrity ones and once she even told me that her mom would fly her off to Singapore just to buy celebrity fragrances for her if she did well in her exams! Talk about motivation! haha I don't have much of a preference as long as they smell good. I mean, that's the point of buying perfumes in the first place, right?!

I was approached by an online perfume store from Singapore, PerfumeStore.sg, which is also Singapore's largest online perfume retailer to do a review on one of their fragrances and I chose Calvin Klein's Beauty EDP.

I was pretty skeptical because I didn't know how it smelled. I was thinking, "What if it didn't smell good? What if it's not to my liking? What if it's too strong?" Little did I know I have nothing to worry about because the second I have it in my hands I spritzed it and lemme tell you this.
It. Smells. Won. Der. Ful.!!

I wore this fragrance for a week to class to test it out and even received compliments from my friends! :D One of them said it smelled 'really smooth' and 'not too soft or too strong'. If there is one word I would use to describe this scent is that it's sophisticated. It's perfect for use in times when you're going out with friends or going on a date. You know, times where you have to dress up. It stays on for a good amount of time too! Up to more than 4 hours definitely. If you wanna know, the notes in this fragrance are Lily, Absolute Ambrette Seeds, Jasmine and Cedar-wood. I can definitely smell Jasmine.

The design of the bottle is surprisingly really simple! When I look at the bottle it surprises me how much different it seems in comparison to the scent of the perfume! I love how Sephora describes the bottle:

"Beautifully feminine, its curvaceous bottle rests upon a luxurious glass heel, suspending the fragrance inside a luminous sphere. A metallic silver ring embraces the glass bottle, expressing sophistication, glamor and confidence."

The perfume arrived just 6 days after it was dispatched! Plus it was a registered mail so it comes with a tracking number where the status of my order can be easily checked at Singpost. Most importantly, PerfumeStore.sg sells their fragrances for a far cheaper rate than stores in Brunei! I did a little research and found out the prices of Calvin Klein Beauty in a couple of stores here in Brunei.

Winmark: BND$130
Paloma: BND$155
PerfumeStore.sg: BND$85!! (You save BND$45, 35% off)

But of course, for shipping you would have to add an extra BND$10++ but that would still be cheaper than buying them here locally! More good news: PerfumeStore.sg is having a Chinese New Year Promotion!

Discounts up to 75%!
