Kittenesque Review: A Crowd Pleasing Fruity Vanilla Fragrance

Flirt Kittenesque Review
I think that this fragrance got lost on the way to the store. Kittenesque is a new addition to the Flirt!, a brand created by Estee Lauder for Kohl's. I like the scent, but if you sprayed it on 10 women and asked them where to buy it, I bet 9 out of the 10 would say Victoria's Secret. I feel like VS has the market cornered on crowd pleasing fruity-vanilla blends that are just a bit on the smexy side, and Kittenesque would fit right in with those scents.

Notes:
Top Notes: Mandarin, Raspberry, Blackberry, Peach Nectar
Middle Notes: Orange Blossom, Jasmine, Honeysuckle
Base Notes: Hazelnut, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Vanilla

This fragrance opens with the Mandarin and a touch of Raspberry and grounded by the Jasmine. It is floral and a bit fruity and kind of.... sparkly? Effervescent? It makes me think a little bit of a bubbling champagne drink for some reason. As the first half hour passes the Mandarin and Raspberry calm down a little bit, and I can smell a bit more of the peach. It becomes a bit warmer, and the Sandalwood and Vanilla come out to ground the scent.

I did like this scent, and I'd wear it pretty much anywhere. It lasted about 8 hours on me.

Flirt! is available exclusively at Kohls

I was not wild about this scent! A friend bought it and used it, but I found it cloying, even when I watched her put it on and I could see that she was not overdoing it.
