This perfume makes no sense, really. It opens with a distinct hairspray smell – which I actually liked because it reminded me of the one my grandma Rosina used on her gray head – and then it continues as body odor wrapped in a vinyl layer. Not exactly what turns me on….
I read that liquorice and anise are in it, and I wonder if their union is responsible for this. I had smelt them separately before (liquorice in Loverdose and anise in Fuel For Life for men and Cartier Must Pour Homme) but never together.
When it would be time for the florals to develop in full, they take a rubbery twist, which I smelt in Cerruti 1881 for women before. In that case though, there was still a certain amount of personality, whereas here there’s really not much to say: Bvlgari Blv II Eau De Parfum tries to be a sophisticated and delicate floral, but it hardly manages to be a floral in the first place.
I’m grateful for another childhood memory but I didn’t like it one bit. Look, and pass on.
