Benefit has launched a new fragrance collection called Crescent Row. It consists of 3 fragrances with attractive presentation and catchy names: Laugh with me Lee Lee, Something about Sofia & My Place or yours Gina (Hear that, Gina?)
Laugh with me Lee Lee is described as a light blend of citrus, jasmine & lily blossoms. (This sounds gooooood. Doesn't it?
Well. it turns out this is my favorite. I am surprised, because I would never consider myself as a "laugh with me" person. At all. Actually I am quite a bit of a grump. But enough about me. This is a light, young, almost oceanic but not so impersonal fragrance.
I like it.
Something about Sofia is a"dream of oriental blossoms, mango & vanilla. hmmmmm, not so Gouda. This is trying too hard. It's like an Avon classic fell into a sifter of body powder.
My Place or yours Gina is "an alluring affair of pink pepper, wild raspberry and patchuli" This is interesting. Upon reading the notes I thought: this sounds identical to the Givenchy's Hot Couture. Well, it kind of is very similar. But not as heady. This is very sweet, but not fruity. Complex and almost syrupy; without being overwhelming.
1 oz. sells for $36 and right now Benefit has a GWP
