Passion dating service
Fast forward to 2017 when I bought a cheap EDT of whatever recent formulation. I can't imagine how I would survive if it had been a spray. However, I actually don't have "summer perfumes" and Passion seems ok for summer nights (okay, once I also wore it to the beach lol). Ingredients wise, they are of good quality, perfectly blended to compliment a fur coat, a diamond necklace, a beautiful dress.
The drydown is Opium style: strong but pleasant powder. I can't believe I wore this in the early 90s, when I was about 13-14 years old. But being from a small town, I didn't have a lot of perfume, so when I got a mini of this (parfum if memory serves) it was my only perfume and I loved it- regardless of what it smelled like... but I did buy more of it after the first mini, so I must have liked it. It starts out very high pitched aldehydes on a smoky background. Relying on reviews, I was expecting something old-fashioned, tacky and maybe even hideous. I find it simmilar to vintage Poison but lighter and less boozy, more elegant and less provocative. Now it is summer in my country, so I will explore it more when autumn starts. Having no idea how the current formula fares, Passion smells expensive, glamorous.
If you dislike the smell of headshops or hippie type stores, you won't like this. This is an INSANELY intense, smoky, oriental-floral. This magic potion is a reminder of your inner peace and strength. There is just enough honey to sweeten it to perfection. The version I have - from ROSS has nothing with the DNA of back to 80's. The heliotrope with its powdery beauty is highly present on my skin, making the whole feel decadent, narcotic. All of this, the creamy languorous florals, the green oakmoss, the buttery sandalwood, heliotrope, comes wrapped in an exquisite leather that is drenched in civet, giving of an irresistible animality to the entire composition that feels rough and strong, romantic and gentle at the same time. Amazing sillage and longevity, easily fills a room making the wearer the center of attention, something that I personally love.
Straight up, this is my " TWTIES"( The Worst Thing I Ever Smelled). I can't even bring myself to spray it on my skin or clothes because I'm in such fear of the full smell. My mother's generous patron, who normally bought her this huge gift set of EL Youth Dew every year for Christmas had passed away. The color purple is so perfect for the smell luxurious purple velvet. One spray on one wrist lasted all day and was even resistant to my evening shower (turns out Dove shower creme is no match for Liz! I've just looked at the notes pyramid, and for me the coriander isnt there and I have no idea what artemisia smells like. This is like one of those fabulous old school classic fragrances I could only wear this at night as it is just too hot to handle by day lol The more I wear it the more I like it. The drydown is predominantly strong oakmoss with a hint of vetiver and patchouli, and the sandalwood feels very creamy and buttery. Smelling it blind I would never have thought of it as a celebrity or drugstore fragrance; instead it is in the same quality ballpark as any designer scent from the decade.
to be young....driving vintage porsche somewhere... I absolutely love this fragrance it is rich, regal, refined, powerful and incredibly sexy. I would class this fragrance more as a Chypre Oriental, as very dry opening. But wait half an hour it has settled into a gorgeous powdery, refined fragrance.The bottle, the incredible juice that emanated from the lid before even being spritzed..was over the top. There's something about this that just embraces the wearer and everyone around her. Review based on edt bottles, from 19; first formula with purple stone cap and yellow pattern on bottle with no reform between them.I would sneak in after school and spray it on whatever I was going to wear the next day..it STUCK TO ME! I keep a bottle in my collection (84 fragrances strong today) at all times. I have the utmost respect and admiration for Liz Taylor and have worn her fragrance line (Diamonds and Rubies, White Diamonds Black Pearls) but Passion I remember smelling the Eau de Toilette at a drugstore one time in Atlanta and I thought it smelled horrible, much too musky and leathery, animalic, aggressive, dark and devil may care, unisex or like a man's cologne. I was just too fond of my feminine beauties like Yves Saint Laurent's PARIS and though I liked Orientals and more mature scents (I am pat my prime) I still prefer for them to have something that kept it fresh and perfumy and female friendly i.e. So for years I avoided this fragrance because I had such a bad first impression of it. I purchased the original vintage Eau de Toilette with the yellow diamond in the bottle as well as miniature dab on bottle from e Bay.Online shops offers: Fragrance 6 items for 9.09 - 24.04 USDFragrance EUR 6 items for 9.86 - 28.56 EURFragrance 6 items for 11.49 - 33.29 1 product for 16.95 GBPView products... Passion is a dark room with scented candles and incense. It starts with fresh aldehydes and then, civet, honey, smoke,sandalwood, spices catch your soul. I'm into vintages now, classics, and I wanted to revisit Passion and have it for my massive collection. It's f****ng cold this winter of 2017/2018 and man... I rarely apply perfume to my bare skin because I'm oily by genetics, but extremely dry due to climate/winter. As its sitting on my skin and warming up the screaming starts to settle down into shouting and some sweet notes start showing up and rounding things off. If you like oriental perfumes, don't be afraid to try Passion (at least the vintage version). A soirée, a gala, and why not ladies who lunch; perfect occasions to wear Passion.Passion by Elizabeth Taylor is a Oriental fragrance for women. Top notes are aldehydes, artemisia, coriander, gardenia, bergamot, ylang-ylang and lily-of-the-valley; middle notes are honey, tuberose, sandalwood, patchouli, orris root, jasmine, heliotrope, cedar, rose and spicy notes; base notes are leather, musk, coconut, civet, vanilla, oakmoss, incense, sandalwood and cedar. It's the first time that I bought "Passion" and I'm so glad! Well, it smells cheap and while it does bring back memories, it's not something I'd really wear anymore. I smell honey and vanilla laid upon smoked leather and some green incense. So smoothly blended into a cloud of harmony where one note rolls into another. On my skin the perfume feels more like a floral chypre rather than oriental.
