Roberto Cavalli’s new fragrance Paradiso just launched in March and I was lucky enough to get my hands on one. If you like RC’s fragrances you’ll know that they’re generally quite young scents, fresh and sensual. I also have Roberto Cavalli Just Cavalli Eau de Parfum which is a really vibrant scent, I enjoy wearing this one on the weekends and have had it in my collection for quite some time.
Paradiso from Roberto Cavalli maintains that young and vibrant fresh scent. It comes in a stunningly beautiful bottle with a large diamond-like lid which suits the dressing table well. Top notes of the fragrance include Citrus, Bergamot and Mandarin blending with floral scents of Jasmine whilst having an undertone of woody notes from Pine and Pink Laurel. The deeper notes are really gentle and I wouldn’t describe this as a deep, woody scent at all. On my skin, I can really smell the citrus and jasmine the most and I must say the scent is really long lasting. It’s also really distinct (just like most RC fragrances) and a little will go a long way.
Paradiso for me reminds me of a holiday scent and in fact is a perfect release in time for summer or for casual weekends at the beach (normal life in Dubai ;). So next time you’re at Sephora, on the look for a light, fun and new fragrance for the summer go check this one out. The bottles come in a variety of bottle sizes and are available commonly at Wojooh, Sephora and most department stores. Prices come in around AED 465 for 100ml and AED 375 for 50ml. Go & check them out next time you’re at the mall and see if it takes you back to a time you were at the beach or on holiday!
