One of my biggest problems when it comes to fragrances is that I pick what I LIKE….not what the man in my life likes. In this way, my definition of a good perfume is something that I can smell on my dirty clothes after I have worn them – something pleasant, that at first spray doesn’t choke me for the first 2 hours in which I am wearing it. Because I seem to expect so little from my scents, it may be hard to see the fragrance as Fergie does, which is as follows:
“Outspoken definitely has a ‘Rock-n-Roll Boudoir’ vibe. I think the woman who wears it can feel both strong and feminine at the same time.”
The Top notes of the fragrance include Star Fruit, Iced Berry, and Wild Saffron. The Heart notes include Tuberose absolute, Midnight Jasmine, and Passion Flower, while the Base notes consist of Black leather, raw ebony wood, and smokey vetiver.
To my nose, this translates into: Yum yum. The scent immediately reminded me of 1994 and the fragrance I once used during that year, V by Vanderbilt. I can definitely appreciate the flowery Tuberose in the scent, but it has a surprisingly dark, Poison-like finish after it dries on the skin. I would describe it as a “mischievous floral” rather than noting its “Iced berry” and “black leather” tones – These two descriptions literally makes me think of a container of boxed wine in leather chaps – and this can never be good. But the fragrance itself is quite nice – in fact, it even prompted two “hmmmm”s from my Playstation-playing man when I walked by. That’s a big thumbs up, Fergie. What I am really curious about is: Will her next scent include Orchid notes?
