Fragrance of the Moment: Diesel Loverdose

Diesel Loverdose
From the moment that I smelt this perfume I needed it in my life. It’s a beaut. So unlike anything else that I own, except maybe Flowerbomb, although they are really nothing alike.

To me, there is definitely a strong liquorice scent that lingers long after the sweeter smells have disappeared, I think it’s this that makes Loverdose so special. All of my other perfumes are sweet and fruity but this is more musky, a little bit masculine with just a touch of powderiness. Then the kick of sweet liquorice under a veil of vanilla makes the scent definitely feminine. It sounds complicated, but it’s not. It can be worn day or night, more of a traditional night time fragrance though (but I wear it in the day time!). The scent is almost addictive, when I’m wearing it  I can’t help but sniff my wrists, I’m definitely in love.

Let’s discuss the bottle shall we? It’s purple, a rough around the edges heart shape and there is a dagger piercing the centre of the bottle. It’s a nod to the aforementioned Flowerbomb but is definitely trying to cater to the needs of the teen girl market too. I like that market. And I do quite like the packaging, it’s a lovely colour and the way the light hits the different faces creates some lovely reflections. I do think it looks a little bit like a grenade though…

Loverdose is available from Boots for £35 (30ml EDP)

  5. I've been eyeing Loverdose up for ages! Every time I go into Boots I try it on, but I've got so many perfumes I can't justify spending that much on it (I'm so cheap)!
