Narciso Rodriguez For Her EdT

Posted in

The year was 2003, and a new door opened into the world of contemporary perfume with the launch of Narciso Rodriguez For Her EdT. An unapologetic floral with an elegance that defies description, Narciso Rodriguez For Her EdT is the chypre reinvented for modern tastes, less green and dry, much warmer and more sensual, more a woody floral than a chypre but with the same radiance as the classic “mossy woods” from the decades before. With its rich musky waft, For Her was aimed at a newer, younger, more urban and affluent perfume consumer who probably didn’t even know she was seeking chic elegance, but who instantly “got it” and identified NRFH as a modern classic.

Christine Nagel and Francis Kurkdjian created For Her with musk at its core. In the top it’s paired with sweet citrus notes, osmanthus, and rich amber, making it immediately sensual. The floral heart of orange blossom emerges with a radiant honeyed aspect as the musk becomes seductive, and leads into the long dry-down, slightly boozy with vanilla, warmed with more amber, sharpened with vetiver, then winding down with a powdery woods and soft musk accord that melts into the skin.

NRFH develops seamlessly throughout, the individual notes never dominate but instead convey a divinely blended, rich, seductive, elegant, and intimate waft which lasts for hours at a brilliantly controlled level. This is an excellent quality fragrance, only a couple of spritzes are needed to for 8-10 hours wear. Feminine flowers and musky skin scents layered over masculine woods and grass and musky skin scents. A beautiful depth yet a sensation of transparency. Chic and sensual and subtle. A classic.

Note: The EdT is in a clear glass bottle coated with black on the inside, with a black cap, and pink lettering. The packaging is soft pastel pink with black lettering. And just so you know, Narciso Rodriguez For Her EdP, which was launched in 2006 and is slightly different, a sweeter, softer, and more floral scent with rose and patchouli instead of orange blossom and amber. Its packaging is the exact reverse – a pink glass bottle and cap with black lettering, in black packaging.
