Today I am reviewing a women’s perfume, Armand Basi in Red. Let’s start with the packaging. It come in a simple white pack with a minimalist yet alluring grey motif on it which represents tree branches, that has little red flowers ready to blossom on it. It’s the simplicity of the design that make it so attractive!. The red against the grey branches gives it more emphasis.
The bottle is a gorgeous transparent, rectangle bottle with the same tree motif drawn onto the glass. The perfume is clear too. The tube that leads the perfume to the spray nozzle is so transparent that you need to look for it, inorder to see it. Otherwise, it blends so well with the liquid inside. It is so clever!. This brand has absolutely captured the essence of the saying ‘Less is more’. The bottle couldn’t be any simpler and yet it is designed so artistically!
The scent of the perfume is strong and beautiful. The first thing you notice about it is a citrusy scent mixed with a floral note of jasmine. It has a slightly spicy note too though you can’t really place what it is at first. It lingers on for a long time. I definitely love this scent. It’s sensual and very attractive.
More info from the brand: The top notes are citrusy mandarin and bergamot, supporting an exotic, spicy note of cardamom and ginger. They symbolize positivity and radiance on an emotional level. The floral middle notes express femininity and joy: a garden of intense aroma, based on rose and jasmine, with the feminine touch of lily of the valley and the deep green of violet leaves. The base notes hold the fragrance’s woody warmth, composed of the most sensual notes of wood and musk, a complexity set against the delicate freshness of moss.
The bottle contains 100 ml and costs AED 250.
