Moschino Fresh Couture!




Hello! Today I'll be posting about Moschino Fresh Couture Eau De Toilette. You've probably seen this perfume all over Instagram by now, because let's face it, the bottle design is certainly interesting! The novelty factor is off the charts with this one; the bottle is made to look like Windex, right down to the spray nozzle! That spray nozzle is just for show incidentally; you lift off the red and white plastic lid and spray from the actual silver spray thingamajig underneath. I love the design, it's so quirky and unique, and a huge talking point! I won this fragrance along with a bunch of others from a competition Beauty Crew ran over Christmas (lucky me!).

'Moschino Fresh Couture is a surprising perfume which plays with fresh and joyful accents and a tempting femininity.'



Real Windex!

The back of the bottle tells us that FRESH works best on: a date, at work, to a formal event and much more! And the cheeky Caution section warns us that this perfume may make you feel fresh! I really like the light blue colour of this fragrance, and must say it makes my perfume collection look a lot more interesting. Despite appearing to be window cleaner, the bottle is glass, not plastic. So let's talk about the actual fragrance!

'The sparkling and compelling top note is composed of a bright accord of mandarin and bergamot, enriched with the intense and exotic character of ylang ylang. A juicy and inviting touch of raspberry adds a colourful and amusing contrast to the floral heart, made of an elegant and velvety accord of white peony and osmanthus. The dry-down underlines the refined and contemporary character of the perfume, thanks to a luminous and sensual trail of clear woods, white patchouli and ambrox.'

So in a nutshell, the notes are: Bergamot, Mandarin, Ylang Ylang, Raspberry, White Peony, Osmanthus, Cedarwood, White Patchouli and Ambrox.

I have to be careful with perfumes, as strong ones often give me headaches, but I don't have that problem with Fresh. I feel like the scent is at its most potent when first spritzed, but after it settles down it's a lovely clean, happy, pretty scent that's perfect for Summer. To me it smells quite floral, but not in an overpowering way, with a slight citrus aroma and an overall sexy tone. Haha. It's really hard to describe fragrances, so cut me some slack, lol.

I'd recommend this for lovers of fresh, clean scents, ladies who love collecting perfume or are into interesting bottle designs and clean freaks as a joke present. LOL.

You can get this unique EDT in 50ml for $95 and 100ml for $125 at Myer and David Jones.

  2. I also have problems with a lot of perfumes, because they give me stomachache, but this one? No! I totally adore this scent and I'm in love with the packaging. I wish the spray nozzle actually worked. That would be so funny.

  5. The packaging is certainly unusual! I immediately thought of Windex when I first saw this fragrance. I might have a sniff of it when I'm out next, sounds like it could be up my alley....not that I need more perfume!

  9. I'm kind of fascinated by this - like what on earth gave them the idea to make perfume look like a cleaning product? On paper it sounds like a bad idea but people seem to be going nuts for it! I don't think I'd buy it just for the bottle but it does smell like a lovely summery scent.

  11. I have been so curious about this fragrance and I honestly thought it would come out of the nozzle like windex! I also thought the bottle would be plastic so I am already so intrigued by this beauty and can't wait to try it :) x

  12. I'm intrigued by this perfume and will give it a spritz in store when I see it. I do love floral fragrances.

  14. The scent sounds interesting but I can't get past this bottle. I know they were going for quirky, but I wouldn't spend my money on a product that looks like a window cleaner :)
