In my sample basket - Versace

I got totally side tracked last week and didn't get to post my sample basket review so this week there will just be two reviews instead of the usual one.

I've taken another EDT sample out of my basket and it's the Versace Yellow Diamond EDT. I tried this sample when I first got it (in one of the previous Ruby boxes) and fell in love immediately.

I know I say "I'm in love with this product" or, "I love, love, love this product" a lot, but with this Versace Yellow Diamond EDT, I literally get butterflies in my stomach, that's how much I love it. Weird?
RSP R950.00
Versace Yellow Daimond is described as a pure, transparent and airy floral fragrance, sparkling and intense as the yellow color, while being luxurious and feminine like a diamond.
It's top notes are neroli, bergamot, amalfi lemon and pear; middle notes are african orange flower, water lily, freesia and mimose; and base notes are musk, guaiac wood and amber.

There is nothing that I dislike about this EDT. I love the full sized bottle with the gigantic yellow diamond cap. It smells like something Cinderella would wear when she attended the magical Ball *Good job Fairy God Mother*.

Eau De Toilette 101

EDT is also know as "Toilet Water" and is considered a "weak" or diluted version of perfume. The concentration of aromatic ingrediences in an EDT is 5-15% (typical ~10%) aromatic compounds where as Eau De Parfum (EDP) is 10-20% (typical ~15%) aromatic compounds.

This EDT is a bit too pricey for my pocket so I doubt I will ever own the full size :( but if you purchase it then you wont regret it.
