Benghal

Benghal by Lancome

Benghal by Lancome

I want to apologize for the lack of updates. We have tons of perfumes to update and we’re ready! So let’s kick it off by introducing something new to Scent Addicts – Review On The Run. We’ll be posting these when doing a review on a perfume in which there is not a whole lot to say – namely because it may smell extremely similar to another perfume that we have recently tested/reviewed, or because it’s very easy to describe, and not a complex enough of a smell to write an in-depth review of. In today’s example, it’s because Benghal is very similar to Incanto Charms. Let the fun begin!

NOTES (as listed on fragrantica.com): ginger, mandarin orange, apricot, osmanthus, jasmine, sandalwood, musk

 

 

CLASSIFICATION: spicy, slightly fruity

AGE GROUP: mature

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Incanto Charms

FORM: eau de toilette

Benghal smells almost identical (to my nose, anyways) to Incanto Charms. This is a more spicy than fruity fragrance, but the fruitiness is apparent enough to mention in the classification. While I wore it, the smell was very consistent from the first application to the end of the day (no surprises or sudden twists). It lasted a very long time on my skin; reapplication would not have been necessary at all. No other reason worth-mentioning factors – this smells identical enough to Incanto Charms that you can get an accurate review of Benghal by reading my other review [of Incanto Charms].

Usher For Women by Usher

Usher for Women

NOTES (as listed on fragrancenet.com): pink freesia, red currant, frangipani, apple blossom, jasmine, apricot, amber, rose, musk, wood, incense, cashmere wood

While this is not usually my “type,” I happily added a sample of Usher to my latest perfume order to give it a try, fair and square. I went in with a very open mind and I was pleasantly surprised!

CLASSIFICATION: woodsy

AGE GROUP: college

Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Heaven

Salvatore Ferragamo Incanto Heaven

NOTES (as listed on sephora.com): Grapefruit, Seringa Flower, Apple, Pink Peony, Apricot, Hibiscus Flower Tea, Violet, Musk.

I was captivated by all things Salvatore Ferragamo, and decided to give this perfume a go. I figured with the success of the other scents we’ve sampled in his line, no harm would come of this purchase. Plus, anything in a cute bottle with grapefruit as a top note is worth the price of a mini.

CLASSIFICATION: Feminine, floral, fresh, fruity

AGE GROUP: Perfect for anyone

SIMILAR SCENT(s): Slightly similar to Incanto Shine.

FORM: Eau de Toilette
