Oh, I love this bottle! We’re all used to Jean Paul Gaultier dressing torsos (or undressing them) for distinctive fragrance bottles, but the brand has changed it up for Scandal and given us a pair of silver dancing legs.
The fragrance (for women who are free and strong.. quelle surprise) attempts to embody two perfume worlds – day and night. There’s the power of marketing because unless that had been suggested to me, it would never have occurred to me that this juice was attempting that. Day and night fragrances are subjective – I’ve tried to actively stop dividing them up into those categories – it’s 2017; we can wear what we like when we like!
Gourmands aren’t my personal favourites (I want to scream and run from Mugler) but this has a honey-dipped fruity floral opening that stays for a moment or two before you find the sweet patchouli base. If you like sugary and deep fragrances, you will love this – it’s not sickly particularly but definitely gourmand and definitely intriguing. The fragrance is exactly like the bottle – attention grabbing – and I really like the concept in its entirety even if the notes aren’t for me.
Price wise, Scandal starts at £44 for 30ml.
