Benefit Crescent Row Fragrances - The Second Story

Soon to hit Benefit stores are 3 new Crescent Row fragrances. You may recall the original girls of Benefit's Crescent Row…

Laugh With Me Lee Lee
My Place or Yours Gina
Something About Sofia

Like the first three fragrances, the newest editions have also been given their own persona and poem. Crescent Row's Second Story introduces:

Garden of Good & Eva
Lookin' to Rock Rita
So Hooked on Carmella

I found the packaging absolutely charming and delightful. Each box resembles a little apartment...

The box opens to reveal a bottle of eau de toilette inside...

So Hooked on Carmella
This is a sweet and delicious scent, it reminds me of Cream Soda and caramel with lingering lemon - yum!

Top notes: lemon, grapefruit, rhubarb
Middle notes
: cyclamen, peony, tiare flower

Bottom notes
: vanilla, sandalwood, amber

Garden of Good & Eva
My favourite scent of the three, I have no idea how to describe this but it's truly lovely!

Top notes
: pear, watermelon, ozone acords, muguet
Middle notes: rosebud, jasmine petals, green violet leaves, freesia
Bottom notes: sandalwood, musk, cedarwood

Lookin' to Rock Rita
A summery and floral fragrance, this leaves a lingering smell of spice and freshness.

Top notes
: lemon, coconut, freesia
Middle notes: juicy fig, hyacinth, violet
Bottom notes: sandalwood, Brazilian rosewood, vanilla

It's always difficult to describe fragrances so the only advice I can give is to head to a Benefit counter and have a sniff of these gorgeous fragrances yourself. I'm sure you'll love them and find your own favourite!

Benefit's Crescent Row fragrance are priced at £29.50 for 30ml and available at Benefit Boutiques and Boots from 30th June 2010
