Fragrance Review - Yardley English lavender EDT

I received this fragrance as a  gift on Mother's day from my sweethearts .Needless to say I was overjoyed to see them putting in so much effort to make me happy. They added a personalised note to the gift too !
                                                           


                                   
Price  - Rs 849/- for 125 ml

Presentation - It comes in a cylindrical tall glass bottle with a golden top .

It claims to have top notes of Lavender leaves, Neroli and clary sage , Middle notes of Lavender oil and geranium and base notes of sandalwood ,tonka beans and musk .


What I liked about  Yardley English lavender EDT


1. The price is very affordable .

2. It has good longevity ,one would think that a cheap perfume may not last long but this one does last 3-4 hours easily even in hot summer season .

3. A moderate sillage (diffusion power).

4. A  nice floral Fougere perfume , like freshly cut grass ,great for summers .Can be worn as Night fragrance too .It has strong and sharp notes of Lavender probably because of the lavender oil , I can only smell lavender,geranium and musk though .

                                                         

                  What I did not like about  Yardley English lavender EDT


1. It has a very sharp smell , and it does not dilute over time ,so I generally stick to one spray or two .

2. It is a unidimensional perfume , not complex , not layered .Though some may like it because it  stays true with the passage of time .

3. For some strange reasons it gives me an old woman feel !


FINAL VERDICT - I rate it a 3.5/5 .A pocket friendly,long lasting perfume worth trying .

    1. Well the deos are quite different than the EDT , you might like the EDT better if you like the deo.

    1. On second thoughts, maybe you should try and tell me if you too feel like that or it's just dear old me !

  5. I somehow tend to stay away from EDTs. I am more of an EDP type of person.However when loved ones gift something like this, I cherish it forever! Waiting for the day when my daughter would give me Mothers Day gifts!
