If you’d ask me about lingerie and perfume, I’d tell you that they both stand for luxury, femininity and sensuality. That’s also why they are the two things I’d like to receive most to find wrapped up under the Christmas-tree. Although, even better would be my favorite lingerie brand La Perla in a bottle of perfume. They have made quite a few perfumes since they launched the first one in 1986.. (I’m definitely not hinting here), but the in 2011 launched Divina La Perla Divina Eau de Toilette is one of my favourite’s from the luxurious brand. It’s the first perfume of a series following the success of Divina (Divina Gold 2012, Divina Silver 2012 and Divina Eau De Parfum 2013) and absolutely one of the most romantic scents you can find.
Divina is a symbol of femininity and sensuality and is designed to be in completely in tune with the brand’s seductive, elegant and sophisticated image. The composition reflects all the beauty and exuberance of Italian gardens with its sweet fruity and floral notes. It’s absolutely a beautiful scent. Light and charming, and perfect as a Christmas gift for every woman.
The fragrance opens with citrus top notes of Calabrian mandarin met with a wave of fresh wild strawberries and a crisp champagne caress. Rose and jasmine dominate the heart notes of the fragrance, along with a touch of fresh orange blossoms. The base notes are warm and captivating due to musk, amber, blonde woods and vanilla.
It’s a wonderful scent and beautiful in every facet. It’s very light, but strong enough to be noticed. The fragrance is very floral and fruity which makes it sweet, but not too powdery. Due the base notes the dry down is a bit spicy and woody. I think it can be worn any season but suits perfectly for spring and summer. The fragrance endurance is rather satisfying for an Eau de Toilette, just a couple of sprays will last all night. It comes in a gorgeous pearl-shaped bottle that is made of polished, smooth glass and colored in delicate pink shades, with a silver cap that provides a touch of grandeur to the pink tones of the perfume. It’s girly and simple, but also very heavy and solid. La Perla Divina is available in 30, 50 and 80 ml Eau de Toilette.
