Anna Sui Forbidden Affair Perfume: Vague Or Mysterious?

The option above might be the deal maker or breaker with Forbidden Affair by Anna Sui. From the very start it’s a fruity thing, but not excessively sweet, and will be more powdery as it evolves, still keeping its sweetness under control. You’ll get mainly blackcurrants, although for a moment I got Womanity’s fig there, but it was short-lived.

 

In the heart notes, when it’s fully developed, Forbidden Affair by Anna Sui is sweet, floral, powdery, fruity and green. And that’s what saved it in the end: I love the green stuff, and it reminded me of Lola by Marc Jacobs, although I prefer the latter as it’s more transparent.

 

Forbidden Affair belongs to that category of perfumes that keep their essence for themselves; it will take time to really know it, if ever, and does it really want to be known anyway? So, back to vague vs mysterious, I personally went for the first, and that’s why I wasn’t too impressed. But if vagueness means exciting mystery to you, then happy days. After all, the same happens sometimes with people, at least until you start seeing them differently.
