Oriflame // Volare Eau De Parfum


Perfume's have peaked my interest, I use to find that there were too many fragrances that all seemed to smell the same. Recently however there's been lots of perfumes that have sexy notes in them, such as Amber, Sandalwood and Jasmine. Having previously tried a few Oriflame perfumes and been thoroughly impressed I was excited to hear about Volare and more excited about seeing it - you'll see why soon. 


Okies so normal pretty box. You can definitely sense that it's going to be a feminine almost romantic fragrance, it's definitely very fitting for Valentine's Day either as a gift or simply to be worn. The rose is symbolic for Valentine's Day (and also for being a flower that robs people blind on the 14th) and is celebrated in this fragrance. 

Notes include fresh cut rose, lilac, iris, violet, ripe peach, golden apricot notes over a base of seductive sandalwood, amber and musk. This is the type of fragrance that I like and want to wear, it's womanly, seductive and fun with a feminine and pretty edge. Because of it's lighter-playful notes it can be worn both during the day and at night. 


Let's talk about the bottle. Wow, it's so pretty in person and these images don't really capture how unique it really is. The bottle should really be turned around the other way, however you can get the idea - it's shaped like a pretty rose! how genius was that *high five to the packaging designers with this one* Due to the fragrance notes, the perfume has a faint pink tint which makes the rose bottle look like a pretty pink rose. 


The gold part is the stem, it did remind me of a Weeble (Weeble's wobble but they don't fall down) because it really doesn't wobble although it totally looks like it should, right? 


The EDP applies via the normal spritz top method and the actual fragrance has lasting power, I applied this in the morning and re-applied it at dinner time (possibly out of habit, not actually out of necessity).  Volare EDP is currently on offer for £12.95 although it will revert back to the normal retail price of £17.95 after Valentine's Day.
