Ralph Lauren's NotoriousTuesday, November 18, 2008
Ralph Lauren's newest fragrance has been described to me as a Spicy Oriental, Modern Glamour and even as a Chocolate Scent. While the chocolate note isn't very prominent on me (in fact, it isn't even chocolate at all, but is a flower named Chocolate Cosmos), I do think that the other two descriptions are accurate. This is probably better described as a spicy floral on me.
Initially the Pink Peppercorn and Black Currant are the most prominent notes, but the dry down (about twenty minutes or so) quickly gives way to the Bergamot, Peonies and a touch of the Chocolate Cosmos. Much later you can smell the patchouli a bit more and the bergamot less.
Top Notes: Black Currant, Spicy Pink Peppercorn and Italian Bergamot
Mid Notes: Chocolate Cosmos, White Frost Peonies, Fiery Carnation
Base Notes: Patchouli Musk, Vanilla, Orris
Overall this is definitely a glamorous scent, and I know that I'm going to be using this one often for years to come.
