Eau Flirt Review & Giveaway
I was chosen to review the perfume Eau Flirt by Harvey Prince, a brand in which I'm slightly familiar with. A few years back I won a Dr. Oz giveaway, where the prize was Eau de Lite, a curve your appetite perfume, which had a very pleasant smell of peppermint, orange (?), and floral, kind of an odd combination, but it worked. Because I've enjoyed their perfumes in the past, I jumped on the chance to try a different scent from them.
To be honest I've been putting off writing this review, no not because the product is bad, but for the simple fact that I have no one to give me a second opinion on it, I know what it smells like on me, but how does someone else perceive it on me? Well, not sure, I'll have to add that part in later.
When smelling Eau Flirt from the bottle it has a very light floral scent. When it's sprayed it kicks up a notch and the smell is stronger, but not overwhelming. The smell also changes from light floral to a strong citrus, with an under layer of floral, and under that a spicy pumpkin scent.
To be honest if I didn't read the website before I wrote this, I would not have guessed pumpkin, I loathe pumpkin scented things, but it's so light that it's not that noticeable, I actually spent 5 minutes huffing the bottle and the place I sprayed myself trying to pick it out *insert slight light headedness* The scents Harvey Prince actually uses are: Lavender, Pumpkin Pie, Citrus, Jasmine, Freesia, Ylang Ylang, Nutmeg, Cinnamon, Ambers.
Eau Flirt is described as: Seductive. Sparkling. Wicked. The logic used behind the making of this perfume? Pumpkin pie and lavender have been shown to evoke a more passionate response in men than any other smell. Why do men find these two scents so arousing? Experts believe men subconsciously associate pumpkin and lavender with happy, positive and stimulating memories. *Interesting* The only thing I can think of when those two things come up is Thanksgiving and...I don't think I've ever smelled straight up lavender *shrug*
Personally besides enjoying the smell, I'm not sure I can call this perfume seductive, sparkling, or wicked, but I've never been one to be able to categorize a perfume like that, my categories are young, mature, and old lady; cologne on the other hand mmmhmmm, I can sniff out a "hot" cologne from across the room. Anyway, I wish I could give you feedback on how people perceive the perfume, but alas I'm a homebody and I don't have any one to ask at the moment.
My opinion? It's a nice smell, it's not overwhelming, I'd classify it as mature, but I'm interested in what other people with think of it, that vastly determines how often I'll wear it. If you're interested in Eau Flirt, I suggest buying a smaller bottle first, which are $12, just to see if it's the right scent for you.
