Made for the woman who “throws herself into life” – the scent is all about looking life straight in the eye and being confident.
The clean-cut design of the bottle doesn’t turn heads – although the signature Mercedes-Benz star sits atop the metal cap – but it was the fragrance’s lovely pink hue that persuaded me to give it a chance.
My verdict: I love the sparkling scent. The zesty notes of blackcurrant and grapefruit are softened by elegant rosewood, with magnolia lending a slightly sweet tint. After a morning meeting followed by lunch at a hawker centre, the scent faded slightly. However, the base notes of cedar wood and amber then became more distinct. I’d wear this right through the day, with a top-up spritz for a dinner date with Hubby.
