007 Fragrance for Women review

Up until now, there have been three 007 fragrances for men (007, Ocean Royale, and Quantum) and as a huge James Bond fan myself, I found them very fascinating as they all cleverly depict the complicated character of James Bond. I've always wondered whether (and hoped that) 007 would launch a fragrance for women, and that's exactly what they're going to do. Yay! 

The upcoming '007 For Women' fragrance launches in early February and I love it, although I do think that 'Skyfall' would've made a better name for it. At first glance, the bottle design is very much the 'girlfriend' of the first 007 fragrance (same colour, same texture pattern). The curvy bottle with the slim top and golden strip makes the overall concept more feminine. 


Top Notes: Black Pepper, Rose Milk 
Heart Notes: Blackberry, White Floral Jasmine 
Base Notes: Sandalwood, Cedarwood, Amber 

The fragrance is described as 'dangerously seductive', and captures the concept of the Bond girl as enchanting, beautiful, timeless, and desirable yet dangerous. 

Scent-wise, it's absolutely amazing! The Black Pepper embraced in Rose Milk in the top notes do well to entice the wearer into immediately liking the sultry scent, and the base notes offer a gorgeously rich and sensual dry down- the cross between the Black Vanilla and Cedarwood is divine and allows a smooth, elegant scent to linger on the skin for hours. The longevity of this fragrance is fantastic and I could even detect it on my coat the next day. 007 fragrances are very affordable and so this is great value considering that you're getting an amazing scent that lasts long. 

Overall, it's a very dark yet feminine fragrance that embodies mystery, sophistication, confidence, and sexiness. Some aspects of the fragrance remind me of BOSS Nuit (but a more sultry version), and it's definitely a fragrance I can imagine Severine from Skyfall wearing in the Casino scene. 


The 007 for Women fragrance is priced at £25 for 30ml and £30 for 50ml and can be pre-ordered now at The Perfume Shop HERE, or purchased from 28th January 2015.
