Heya Posse! 50ml of Adam Levine For Her costs less than a McDonalds large Big Mac meal if you find a good deal! That’s insane. I know, the hype has been huge about it. Personally, that turned me off it a bit. Plus I think Adam Levine might be a massive dickhead, though the jury seems to still be out. Anyway, not so long ago I had an order at one of the discounters and under the perfume I was looking at the Adam Levine bottle was being shown for nearly zero dollars. Blind Buy occurred.
It arrived a couple of weeks ago and I finally decided to give it its first outing at our Melbourne Cup event and then later at Trivia that night. WOW! I have never had this kind of reaction to ANY perfume I wore. People needed to tell me how much they loved it, LOADS of people. It was uncanny. So I thought you guys better get in on this secret……
Adam Levine For Her
Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Saffron, Citrus fruits, Tagetes, Spices
Heart: Jasminum auriculatum, Australian sandalwood, Rose
Base: Benzoin, Vanilla
Firstly, how cute is that microphone bottle? Clever and fun idea.
When I first spritz Adam Levine For Her the creamy, Samsara style of sandalwood is given the menthol Australian bent. Those top notes hardly even make an appearance other than to give the sandalwood somewhere to rest comfortable. White flowers add breadth and a very little breathiness.
Through the heart I finally get a hint of the marigolds. They’re really used as a counterpoint and to hold the fragrance grounded. Um, now that I look properly at the notes that could be rose doing the heavy lifting, but it smells marigoldy to me.
The base is a beautiful sandalwood amber that isn’t nearly as diva as Samsara or even Miller et Bertaux Santal +++. Somehow they manage to keep it more low key and chill. Don’t be fooled though, it may be acting all that stuff but it is projecting in the megawatt range. Basically grabbing people by the nose and bringing them, to ask you what the hell that magnificent scent is. LONG after my nose has completely closed down to it.
To sun it up: Adam Levine For Her is a spicy/white floral/sandalwood/vanilla that seems to project amazingly. Don’t know why he made it for women when it’s obviously Ah May Zing on dudes as well.
