Elizabeth Arden's PrettyMonday, March 02, 2009
It's not that often that a company will create an entirely new note for a fragrance, but that is exactly what Elizabeth Arden did for their new fragrance, Pretty. They created a new floral note, named Petalia, which was meant to be unique and easy to wear.
I honestly have had a very difficult time coming up with a way to describe this note or the scent. Overall, this really is just a very pretty floral scent with a bit of citrus/peach added in. Initially the floral notes are more white florals (definitely due to the White Peony middle note), but after about an hour I smell a warmer floral, very similar to a violet note, mixed with the Star Jasmine.
Top Notes: Italian Mandarin, Orange Blossom, Peach Nectar
Middle Notes: Petalia, Star Jasmine, Pink Iris, White Peony
Base Notes: Fluffy Musk, Jacaranda Wood, Creamy Amber
I really do love wearing this scent. It is subtle and classic, but not like every other white floral out there.
I think my husband summed it up best a few days ago. He came to me in the kitchen and just started talking about how I smelled. I asked what he thought. "I like it, you just smell really pretty." Exactly.
