I don’t call this blog mybeautywaxstash for nothing. I HOARD beauty, bath, body and wax products. Not intentionally in my defence. Sometimes I struggle to find the time to use items. Sometimes I forget I’ve even bought them. Nuxe Prodigieux eau de parfum was a forgotten buy living in a drawer and I dragged it out when fancied a fragrance change. I originally bought this in a gift set when it was on sale after Christmas, which also contained a shower oil and body lotion.
Why this? Nuxe as a brand are known for skincare, body products and fragrance. But they aren’t the cheapest products! So to get a gift set that contained products that I wanted to try and at a great price isn’t something I was going to pass up. But when it comes to why I wanted to use the fragrance, I wanted to wear something unusual. I don’t always want someone to catch my scent and know exactly what it is, I want to be different. And this fragrance I thought would be different!
Packaging. 30ml of eau de parfum living in a tall and thin glass bottle with a gold lid. The bottle itself is quite simple in look but beautiful, and mirrors the style of the box it comes in. Both have an ombre effect as the base is a gorgeous copper colour and gets lighter to the point its clear in the bottle but the box is gold. Elegant, sophisticated and quite expensive in look.
Scent. This is what I would call quite a classic scent. It’s feminine, floral with the tiniest hint of citrus, musk and vanilla. The floral element for me stands out more, but has a warmth to it, This makes it a richer, heavier scent rather than a light and whimsical one.
Strength & Longevity. When I first sprayed this, because of the type of scent it is, I assumed this would be very strong and possibly linger in an overpowering way regardless of how little or more I used. Strangely enough this wasn’t the case at all. I could smell this all day when I wore this in work but it was subtle and pleasant, and didn’t make me feel like a walking fragrance counter from a department store.
Recommended? I’m so glad I took the plunge and got this fragrance within the gift set. Compared to other fragrances in my collection, this one I don’t feel would date and would be quite timeless. It’s not relying on any trends and is sticking to a a formula which many would call ‘ a true perfume ‘. I can see a young lady to an older woman loving this fragrance so not a scent that would exclude any age. Would you want a classic scent in your fragrance wardrobe?
