All Of Me by Narciso Rodriguez NEW! NEW! NEW!

Hey Posse! A couple of months ago I grabbed a few things at Surrender To Chance. Yes, I know I’m supposed to be getting rid of my samples and decants in the New Idea 2023 deal. Sorry, I’ve always been a greedy little piggy, so here we are. I like to spend a while wearing new perfumes away from the crowds and fragrant melange of department stores. That way I get a MUCH better feeling for the fragrance on its own. Narciso Rodriguez often does perfume I love. Seeing All Of Me gave me an instant zing and it was in the cart. There are a few others in the order we may get to.

All Of Me by Narciso Rodriguez 2023

All Of Me Narciso Rodriguez

Parfumo gives these featured accords:
Top: Magnolia
Heart: Rosa Centifolia, Bourbon Geranium
Base: Musk, Sandalwood

OK, so did you love the naughties? Those radiant perfumes like Elie Saab, SJP Lovely, Gucci Guilty woman? Then you will remember and LOVE All Of Me. It’s a new showing on a now historic trope. So pretty and very wearable. I can imagine many of the youngsters wearing this reminiscently of mothers and grandmothers fragrances. Also, the Mums and Grandmas who have moved on to newer pastures may also get a lovely memory jolt of glory days gone by.

None of the noted accords are very connected to the way All Of Me smells. It’s a shimmering, radiant opening of dewy white florals. The heart remains sparkling but not even remotely like geranium or rose real life counterparts. It’s a fizzy fantasy flower from cartoon land. There’s even some softly juicy soda pop fruits swirling around. The heart gives me hints of Lancome Midnight Rose.

All Of Me by Narciso Rodriguez

This is where the fragrance stays for most of its quite lengthy lifespan. You could spritz All Of Me in the morning before work and still have lovely, wispy remnants at the end of the day. They will have the soft undertones of laundry musk under confectionary fruits. MAYBE some sandalwood but honestly that could be note list suggestion.

All Of Me is super traditional femme but smelled so good on my I’m thinking of a bottle purchase, hopefully they are doing 30ml. Not groundbreaking at all but done beautifully. I wasn’t going to write about it but I’m down to the last few spritzes of my 3ml sample and I’m craving MORE! There’s something to be said for that kind of desire.

Are you a Narciso Rodriguez fan? Does All Of Me sound good?

    The OG NR gave me instant headache, though I still keep a travel size for reference.
    I thought I loved the red cube after blowing through 2 samples. Bought it but never even opened it. Sold quickly when listed.
    I do enjoy magnolia & fruitiness so will get my nose on this

    • Portia says:

      OMG Alityke. You are the first person I know that had this problem. So sorry to read it. I wonder what hit you?
      Love to read if you enjoy All Of Me.

        Keihls does the same. Between small musk molecule headache & large musk molecule anosmia, I find many musks challenging.
        I liked NR enough to buy it but it had to go.
        I’ll snag a sample of All of Me & report

    alas, comment was marked as spam yesterday. what she said: I am not a NR fan. However, I’m quite taken with a ‘fizzy fantasy flower from cartoon land’. Like Jessica Rabbit?

  • Kathleen says:

    I’ ve always found the NR perfumes very pretty, my favorite is Narciso Poudre. This one sounds good too, I adore the scent of magnolia flowers.

    • Portia says:

      Hey Kathleen,
      Sat next to a woman wearing poudree at the opera a few years ago. She smelled so good it added to the evening beautifully.

    No one loves Geranium Bourbon as much as I do – this, along with the rosa centifolia (one of my favorites among the roses) makes this a must-try. I was … indifferent… to the original NR – probably for no other reason that (insert shrug emoji)… but this one I will spend some time with!

    You are on a ROLL, Portia!


  • Eldarwen22 says:

    I have the little sample set running around somewhere but can’t remember where. Got that at least a couple years ago from Sephora but haven’t seen the pink or black bottle in at least a year on Sephora.

  • March says:

    NR (back in the day) was often the answer when I’d ask someone what lovely thing they were wearing. Pretty sure I still have my original bottle and the pink one (and maybe the silver one?) I bet I’d love this. NR seems like a fragrance that I wouldn’t like, but I do.

    • Portia says:

      Yeah, OG NR seems to be a bit of an everyone scent March. It crosses generations and tastes. Smart choice for him, it must have made squillions.

  • Maggiecat says:

    I’m an NR fan from the black bottle on myself, so yes this sounds interesting to me! I wore SJP Lovely quite a bit as well, so the magnolia and musk part sounds really good. I’ll have to check it out!

    • Portia says:

      That original NR was a bloody good perfume. I’m going to get mine out and give it some summer loving after all this chatter about it Maggiecat,

  • Dina C. says:

    I am a NR fan, so this sounds pretty good to me. There are other things I want more, however, and I already have some Magnolia scents. Real Magnolia has a great lemony freshness and zing to it. We have those trees here in Virginia. I’d like to sniff this. Thanks Portia!

    • March says:

      Ooooh, I miss those trees! Magnolias in spring and summer, what a wonderful smell.

    • Portia says:

      In the last 10 years or so those huge white magnolias have come to Sydney in a big way. We had a mauve/pink one in the front yard as children. I always thought they were the most gorgeous flowers.

  • rosarita says:

    I like the black bottle and the white cube bottle is one of my favorite grab and go perfumes. All of Me sounds good, and at least it’s got a name beyond just Narciso Rodriguez.

  • AnnieA says:

    Alas, at least one NR made me sneeze so I veer away. Annick Goutal often does too, oddly. Happily for you there IS a 30 ml. Love to hear about perfume swoons,

  • Tom says:

    This sounds wonderful!

  • Michelle says:

    I do love NR! The original in the black bottle For Her is still my favorite. I use the parfum and body cream. I had a man remark one time “girrrl… you smell good enough to eat”. I am definitely checking this one out!
