I have always loved the bond films since I was a child. The exotic locations, mysterious encounters and of course James Bond.
A couple of years ago, they released 007 aftershave for men. It smelt great but I always wondered if they would release a womens version, as the male version was so popular.
My wish has come true. I would like to introduce 007 for Women.
007 for women captures the heady power of the bond woman.
‘Dark yet feminine ingredients convey an air of thrilling intimacy. An initial burst of spicy black pepper enveloped in rose milk ignites an intriguing paradox of danger and sensuality. Alongside this, the instantly attractive, familiar fruity character of blackberry is combined with the feminine softness of white floral jasmine. The rich and sensual oriental signature is driven by black vanilla and tantalizing white musk, with a touch of elegant cedarwood.’
I was very lucky to receive a bottle of this new perfume to try.
The marketing says that the smell is charismatic, intelligent, feminine and dangerously seductive.
Well that ticks all my boxes. hope it lives up to it.
The bottle is very interesting and tactile and really suits the feel of the perfume. The dark glass and diamond cut pattern create a kaleidoscope effect.
It is very difficult to pinpoint the scent, but have to say it is gorgeous. It is a delightful mix of floral, fresh, woody and spicy. I always like something a little different and this perfume is that.
It contains black pepper, black vanilla, white musk, fresh bergamot, sweet blackberry,warm cedarwood, soft gardenia and jasmine.
If you like the Liz Earle perfumes, especially no 15, then you will love this new frangrance.
Once the perfume has settled, a couple of minutes after spraying it on your pulse points, it lasts all day.
I have already had people ask what I am wearing. It is a great daytime perfume, which can also be worn at night if you do not like really strong heady ‘going out’ perfumes
I am so glad that it is an Eau de Parfum rather than an Eau de Toilette. Which means it has a higher percent of perfume oil, so is a stronger more long lasting scent.
If you do not like a strong scent, they have brought out a shower gel, which leaves a lovely soft version of the scent on your skin.
So now you can be a glamorous sophisticated Bond girl
This perfume is available in the following sizes
30ml Eau de Parfum £25

Top Perfume Tips
Most people just spray perfume on their wrists. But did you know that there are other pulse points
centre of the neck, behind the ear, behind the knee
Skin Type – Have you found that scent lasts on some people more than others? It may be because of your skin type. People with drier skin will find that perfume dissipates more quickly than those with a more oily skin. So if you have dry skin it is worth investing in an Eau de Parfum for a longer lasting scent.
If you dab a small amount of petroleum jelly (Vaseline) on your pulse points, where you are just about to spray your perfume, then the smell will hopefully last longer as it helps the skin to absorb the scent.
