Catherine Malandrino

Birchbox Breakdown

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). The citrus top notes open up to aromas of lush orange blossom, sweet jasmine, and fresh gardenia. And then the fragrance rounds out with hints of amber and musk, leaving behind a lovely blend that captures a flirty but refined mood. Like her renowned, sought-after designs, it’s the perfect blend of chic Parisian style and the infectious energy of New York City.

How to Use

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.

Delicious, all season scent

Chanel coco fan, as well as Burberry brit, this perfume reminds me of why I love those two perfumes so much. I don't think of this as flowery as some other reviewers state, but more musk/vanilla with deep and complex notes. I usually dislike sample perfumes but always smell the ones I get from my monthly birchbox, and this was the first one I've ever tried. Definitely a contender.

LOVE LOVE LOVE

I am in love with this scent. I always receive complements when I wear it. I do wish it wasn't so expensive but its worth it. I received this as a sample and purchased the larger bottle. Would recommend and buy again.

Heavy
Sampled

This is a spicy and heavy scent. Wintery for sure. Almost powdery spicy if that makes sense? Nice, but too mature for me.

smells good but steep price
Sampled

Like most of the other scents I have received from BB, I really like this scent. It is flowery, but understated. It comes with a pretty steep price tag, though, so not sure I would buy it for myself (how do I justify it when I have so many perfumes already?).

Love!

I fell in love with this fragrance! It has staying power but it's not too strong and overpowering. I receive complements every single time I wear it. I just wish the price was a little lower.

If You Never Buy Fragrance, Buy This!
Sampled

I fell in love with this fragrance the moment I opened my monthly sample box! Owning it is to what I aspire, and I will get there.For me, I think, was the top note of orange blossoms in the fragrance, it is sweet without being "cloying."The fruity notes (pear,ruby red grapefruit)keep the fragrance luscious. You cold wear it to the office, but why waste it? This fragrance was meant for better things. A night in Montserrat? Three weeks in Portugal every winter?You decide.
