Having found myself the recipient of a set of these Parfum de Coeur fragrances, I decided to give these a try. The fact that Parfum de Coeur’s last scent experience didn’t go over well with me doesn’t mean none of their other fragrances won’t.
In Bottle: Smells like really sweet strawberry hard candy with a weird floral blanket.
Applied: When I was a kid I had a doll that came with a tiny bottle of perfume. The doll was great, the perfume smelled exactly like this. It was overly sweet, it was some sort of berry and it had florals thrown into it in an attempt to make it smell a little more interesting than just extremely potent strawberry candy. But what the florals just end up doing is give me a headache and make the fragrance smell especially synthetic. There is not much of a progression to this. It starts sweet and strawberry, and it ends sweet and strawberry.
Extra: Apparently there’s a large number of fragrances that also belong to this line of Sexiest Fantasies. I have to admit this Strawberries and Champagne doesn’t remind me of sexy fantasies.
Design: Rather uninspiring design that reminds me a bit of the 90s in a retro nostalgia way. This isn’t a full on perfume–it is just a body spray so I don’t expect too much of its design. The design is functional. It works. It just looks very dated and a bit cheesy.
Fragrance Family: Fruity
Notes: Florals, champagne, strawberry.
I had actually been looking forward to seeing if I would get their Skin Musk fragrance in my grab bag as it seemed to be pretty well received, but it was not to be.

P.S. And with this rather underwhelming fragrance, I hope you all have a great New Year!
