Make sure your perfume keeps up with you: Use Style de Paris shower gel beforehand for an even longer-lasting scent.

Catherine Malandrino

Birchbox Breakdown

When we seek out a new perfume, we prefer to go with one that’s layered and complex like we are (if something is going to define us, then it better represent, right?). This scent from fashion designer Catherine Malandrino hits all the right notes with a playful yet sophisticated oriental fragrance mixed with fun fruits (think: Italian Mandarin, ruby red grapefruit, and Nashi pear). Like her renowned, sought-after designs, it’s the perfect blend of chic Parisian style and the infectious energy of New York City

How it Works

This multifaceted perfume has citrus top notes that open up to aromas of lush orange blossom, sweet jasmine, and fresh gardenia. The fragrance rounds out with hints of amber and musk, leaving behind a lovely blend that captures a flirty but refined mood.

How to Use

Spritz on wrists, behind ears, and other pulse points.

A perfume for the picky consumer

I am so picky with perfumes. I tend to go toward the ones that smell fruity. I rarely use any others. I received many sample perfumes in my month box - all placed in a tin because I don't like the smell. But this perfume I love! It's not over powering at all and smells wonderful! Thank you Catherine Malandrino!

In love

I am absolutely in love with this perfume. Like others, I didn't really like it at first. I started to wear it and the scent turned out to be wonderful and one that lasts all day. I'm waiting until I get a discount code before I purchase. This is on my Birchbox must have list!

Simple: OBSESSED.

I've worn the same two perfumes for years now, and while I'll give each Birchbox fragrance a chance, they never end up appealing to me. Instead, they sit in a jar in my room in case of emergencies. This scent however, I LOVED as soon as I open up the box. The sample was gone in a week and I'm already ordering a bottle for myself! It's the perfect scent for any occasion - I wear it to work, for a night out, everywhere! For a fashion designer turned perfumer, Catherine Malandrino scored!

Love this scent!
Purchased

At first I did not like the scent of this perfume! It smelled like oranges and baby powder! But after a while, it smelled like vanilla and jasmine! I got a lot of complements while wearing this which appealed to my ego so I purchased a full bottle! Can't wait to get to wear this every day!

A little too musty

Seemed too stuffy and sophisticated of a scent for a woman in her early twenties. Personal preference will keep me from purchasing this one.

Not for me

The scent was way too strong for me. It reminded me of old lady perfume (it should be noted that I'm not a big perfume wearer). I prefer a more subtle scent.

Love new perfumes!

Completely loved the smell of this perfume! I am a little saddened by how much it cost, because it is something I would definitely buy if it was a little more cost effective.

Its ok

This perfume is ok, not really my cup of tea. The fragrance is a little too strong, you may just have to have one spritz of it. I like the light fruity notes, but still a little too strong.

Love!

Received this as a free sample and used it all in a couple of weeks. I didn't like the fragrance at first, but after it settled it was wonderful. I received many compliments, bit cant bring myself to spend $70 on a small bottle of perfume.....

smells amazing

This perfume smells so good but it's pretty pricey. I wish it came in a small rollerball then I would have given it 5 stars.
