Kylie Minogue "Dazzling Darling"

I've never taken a sniff of any Kylie Minogue perfumes in the past, but when the lovely Kat from Kats Colourings raved about this version of Darling, I had to have her. There was no tester of this perfume, but I bought it anyway. Not something I recommend, but I needed that pretty bottle of perfume.

Description- "Dazzling Darling opens with fresh and spicy notes of red pepper, acai berry and violet. Rose, passion flower and orris root compose the elegant core of the composition, while the base of sandalwood, cashmere and delicate musk provide a gentle finish."

From first spritz, this perfume is alive with fresh, tart florals. The pepper is detectable, but blends so beautifully and grounds the heady notes. I'm not great at detecting particular floral notes, but I believe that this fragrance is very violet heavy. Apparently I am a fan.

This perfume is so pretty and feminine. It just screams Springtime bouquet. Bright, sparkling and fun. 

During wear, the base notes envelope the florals, grounding them to a more powdery, musky finish. Don't let the word powdery discourage you, it is a beautiful scent that lingers, providing gentle wafts. This was a laster on me, which is a good thing because I adore it. 

Thanks Kat for reviewing Dazzling Darling, if not for you, I never would have met her :)
