Ralph Lauren Notorious Review

I'm always so terrible with my fragrance reviews but I couldn't help but want to test out and review Ralph Lauren Notorious for you this week!

It's been a while in between my Ralph Lauren purchases and normally I indulge in his "fun" scents like Ralph, Ralph Rocks, Etc....however I took a step way up the ladder of sophication when I tried out Ralph Lauren Notorious for the first time last week! It's seen been a staple fragrance in my wardrobe for the over a week since using it.

It is an Eau de Parfum which makes the staying power fantastically long wearing while lingering throughout the day and into the night! Two squirts pretty much gets me well into the evening which is especially good considering how my body chemistry sucks up fragrance extremely quick leading me to have to re-touch up throughout the day.

The scent is a very provocative, oriental blend that has traces of fresher notes like Italian Bergamot and Vanilla. It's sophisticated enough for evening wear but manages to keep a lighter side that's perfectly lovely for a work day as well. I was slightly frightened of the drydown notes of patchouli however it remains timelessly elegant.

The price is affordable at $45 USD for a 1 oz bottle of Eau de Parfum and the scent is works very well as a day or evening fragrance! All in all Ralph Lauren Notorious definately gets my seal of approval for purchase! Even thought it's outside my normal, I really liked this one alot and Muse Approve it for purchase!

You can learn more about Notorious by visiting the Ralph Lauren site.

RL fragrances tend to go into 2 different directions: glamorous and grown up like this one or Romance, or ditzy and teenager-ish like Ralph Rocks and the rest of 'em. I personally like Romance, it's a beautiful fragrance and *I think* smells similar to this one.

yup yup dao! I do the ditzy teen ones myself :) I love the original Ralph! I like Romance alot but I didn't feel like Notorious was quite like Romance...Romance is more romantically girlish and I felt like Notorious was more "grown up" and sophisticated.

For me this is a change as I'm all over funky, fun scents!
