According To Me

Lately I've been very very upset with some products that I own, and all I can think of "Damn, this is such a ripoff and I really need to write a review so my readers won't fall to the same hole as I am". So here I am making a new 'column' called "According To Me"to review all products that I am really happy and upset with! And all products are bought by myself and I do not earn a single penny from this, so trust me, these posts are not those bias, sponsored post. 

First review : Perfume

Coco Mademoiselle by Chanel
This perfume is actually the one who makes me want to make this review column, and sadly its not because its a good product. I bought this perfume around september and I was really in love with it. 

The smell of the fragranced was described as 
"Sicilian oranges, Calabrian bergamot and Sicilian grapefruit. A floral heart is created of pure rose extract and pure jasmine extract, along with a fruity touch of litchi, while its base notes carry a combination of Indonesian patchouli, Haitian vetiver, Bourbon vanilla ad white musk. This fragrance is dedicated to courageous, brave and modern women who prefer luxury and elegance." 

The label " Eau De Parfum" and the fact its freaking CHANEL convinced me to buy even though there was "114 euro" printed on the price tag. I thought it would be one of my best buy since its a product, launched by one of the biggest and successful luxury brand, Chanel. But no, I turned out to be wrong.
The smell doesn't stay on that long even though I have sprayed tons of them as if I was using Victoria's Secret Body Spray. 
Just to give you prove, I conducted a test to time how long the fragrance will stay on. And the result is less than an hour. The smell already starting to fade 20 minutes after I sprayed them and it keeps on fading. 


On the other hand, I am very satisfied with the smell and performance of Elie Saab Le Perfume.
The smell was described as " Voluptuous and elegant. A fragrance with an enveloping trail that combines Orange Blossom, Egyptian Jasmine Absolute and a woody Cedar accord"
On contrary with Coco Mademoiselle, This fragrance is very long lasting and smell so elegant as it was described. The smell last so long, even I can still smell it on my clothes days after I sprayed them. I also bought them around 100 euro and I got no regret, at all.
