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].
