UNTOLD ABSOLU Eau de Parfum
A warm flor-iental, but was expecting something more unique
I enjoyed the samples of "Untold" this summer and after reading all the fragrance notes in the "Untold Absolue" , which are among my favorites for a floral Oriental fragrance, I took the plunge and purchased this as a fragrance for the fall and winter. I anticipated this eau de perfume to have similar characteristics as the lighter "Untold" but deepened with the spicier notes listed in the "Absolue" formula. But it is a different fragrance entirely. And I also expected it to be more unique as compared to so many other fragrances in this category but was disappointed that it really is not. It is long lasting and not overpowering. When I do select this fragrance to wear, I spritz on one or two other scents as well to give it sparkle and my own unique touch. THIS is when I get compliments but of course, it's not just "Untold Absolue", but my own *recipe* of combinations. Be adventurous and give this a try! And feel free to play with it by combining some of your own favorite lighter notes, too!
I received a sample with a skin care purchase. My husband and I both love the scent. He only likes Channel No. 5 up until now. This is my new go to perfurm!!!!! Wonderful balane -- strong, yet feminine.
