Day 5: Printemps

The perfume on day 5 in the Micallef Advent Box is Printemps. The colour of the actual perfume is pink which suits it very well.

 

At first sniff I scented roses coated with red berries and sweet vanilla. Uncomplicated and joyfull. It has the brightness and sparkle of a young girl.

 

This would be more a perfume for a maintream perfume house like Lancome less for a niche perfume house. But I like it none the less. Would not buy a full bottle, the 5 ml bottle suits me just fine.

 

Printemps is part of the les 4 seasons or four seasons collection from Micallef. The reviews online on Fragrantica and Make up alley in general are not very positive.

 

Notes according to aus liebe zum duft: top bergamot, pear heart rose, raspberry, blackberry base sandalwood, lignum vitae (gaiac wood), cedarwood, vanilla, white musk. Fragrance family: floral fruity

 

I have noticed most of the Micallef scents I have tried so far tend to be quite sweet. Longevity on my skin of Printemps was not very good. After an hour, most of Spring was gone but I could still a sweet scent lingering on my skin after a few hours.
