Fragrances. I think it’s safe to say most of us love a good body mist, eau de toilette, eau de parfum or a body spray. Whatever form it comes in we buy them and use them either daily or save for special occasions. I’m probably a bit of a hoarder when it comes to this type of product. So I’m not surprised I forgot I even owned Nuxe Prodigieux Eau de Parfum. 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 did I buy this?
Nuxe skincare, body products and fragrances aren’t the cheapest of 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.
30ml of eau de parfum is housed in a 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 it’s clear in the bottle but the box is gold. Elegant, sophisticated and quite expensive in look.
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. It’s not all fresh and flowery as it has a warmth to it, This makes it a richer, heavier scent rather than a light and whimsical one.
Strength & Longevity
I assumed this would be very strong and possibly linger in an overpowering way regardless of how much 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. So strength is medium with great longevity.
This is not only a beautifully presented fragrance, but it smells just as good too. It would appeal to many people of different ages. But ideal for those who want a fragrance to smell traditional, timeless and not dictated by trends or gimmicks. I’m so glad I took the plunge and got this fragrance. Compared to other fragrances in my collection, this one I don’t feel would date and would be quite timeless so this gets a massive thumbs up from me.
