Young and very modern American designer of Cuban origins Narciso Rodriguez has launched his first fragrances which has instantly become the hit in the US, and not only there. The new modern aroma is aimed at the modern and free woman, who is aware of her sexuality. Popularity of this fragrance (regardless of its unusual composition and a heavy character, and perhaps exactly because of that) is easy to explain because it reflects a desire of every woman to attract and seduce, and this fragrance has openly sexual character. Unusual lustful composition is created with the sensual musk in its centre, surrounded by orange, osmanthus and amber. The base unites vanilla, amber and vetiver. Intensive sharp scent with hidden and scarcely discernible densely-sweet nuance in the centre later turns into a soft and balmy powder. The aggression disappears and the fragrance becomes tame and gentle.

At first, in 2004 it was launched as EDT in a black bottle in pink outer box. Then in 2006 the EDP was created in a pink bottle and black outer box. The composition was changed, despite the fact that the musk note has remained in the centre of the composition. EDP has rose note in the top. The trace has become more mysterious and rich, thanks to exotic woods – patchouli and sandalwood. Both variances of the fragrance can be described as floral chypre with intensive musk nuance, only the first one is sharper and more aggressive, while the second one is sweeter and softer. The creators of these fragrances are Christine Nagel and Francis Kurkdjian.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her was launched in 2003.

Wanted so much to like this, and even though I had smelt it on paper (or ribbon as they often have), I hadn't worn it on the skin before I purchased it last year. Was able to re-sell it on ebay and only lost a couple dollars - but it is nothing beautiful. Katie P from youtube and I have incredibly opposite taste.

I actually disliked it after I tested it first time. I thought the bottle was not feminine enough. That was a year ago. Happy that I gave it second chance, and this time, I loved it. I ordered a mini, couldn’t wait for it to arrive and drained it quite fast. I find it so addictive. I panicked that my mini will get empty and ordered a bottle, so that I would be able to relax and enjoy that beauty.

It smells wonderful on my clothes and on my skin. It blends so well with me. I have never had a sexy fragrance before, but this one may be. It is so intimate. I also love the darkness.

It is actually very soft well blended floral woody musk. Not soapy, not clean, not dirty. Not too floral. Warm. With a touch of darkness. Linear. I find it sensual and intimate applied lightly. Applied more it is sexy. I am not able to identify separate notes, except of musk, because it is blended so nicely together.

The scent is very fleeting on me though. It maybe that is how it is meant to be, this is edt. edp (pink bottle) is totally different scent for me, too floral and the musk is much sharper for my nose. Edt is perfect.

I believe it stays very close to skin, so it is for all who loves not to be smelled from far away. My BF likes it, luckily, he says it smells very good but he can smell me only if he gets very close. That is exactly how I want it to be. Longevity is not very good; I have to re- apply after 2-3 hours. But it may be my nose.

I find it suitable for layering with many scents from my wardrobe.

My new love.

I didn't mean to diss you, EDT, when I picked the EDP over you to dance with. I'm sorry. Your yellow flowers (mmmm, osmanthus) are no longer cold on my skin, and your vetiver is refreshing, not obnoxious. I smell now that while your sister, EDP, slow dances cheek-to-cheek with the captain of the football team, you and I are free to breakdance around them, you little freak, you!

This is a great everyday fragrance that smells verrrry much like Egyptian Musk hippie perfume oil! I can also smell the orange blossom and amber. It is very linear, doesn't change much, never hits a foul or overpowering note. It smells like clean, musky, sun warmed skin all day.

NR For Her EDT is a put-together, classy woman in daytime, but is an absolute seductress in the dark. Every time I wear this, I feel like wearing something short, and sexy, or just nothing at all. The dry-down is an incredible musk that lingers, especially on clothing.

It's a keeper, but only to be worn by those who have the attitude to back it up.

I bought NRFH on a whim because I LOVE the opening- floral, sexy, ladylike, and just what I think of when I think about perfume. It's sweet, but not too sweet.

The heart is also lovely. It gets sweeter, and I can definitely detect amber and musk, and hints of vanilla. By now the florals are fading for me a little bit, but it's not too terrible a loss, since the musk is so nice.

But then after that's gone, this perfume turns into SCREAMING vanilla... with a certain "womanly" note (wink wink nudge nudge ifyaknowwhatImean). Now, that specific scent is not a problem for me- the problem is the vanilla. It's just too much, and it smells cheap. I wouldn't mind the scent that I'm left with, but I feel like the lasting power of the good parts of the fragrance really leaves a lot to be desired. I'm disappointed, because I can definitely see how this would be a really sexy and sensual perfume. I will add that the weather here has been HOT and I've noticed that a lot of scents just aren't holding up very well on my skin, so once it cools down, I'll have to give this another try and update my review.

I tried a sample with the reformulated version (the patchouly is present). The version with the notes as listed on this page was the one i wanted to try. as it stands the scent does not strike me as something special. Maybe it is so popular that smelling is on other people has weakend its apeal for me. Not my cup of tea. Would like to try the original version though...

~ I have wanted to get my nose on this popular designer 'fume for a long time but until just recently thanks to a perfumista friend couldn't, thank-you! My primary interest was as I had read that this might be wearable and venture into the unisex realm? Trust me other than "maybe" the final end with a hint of woody notes, no! This is "extremely sexy and for her" sorry for the lack of tact but there is no other word! I knew from the initial sample spray it was an intoxicating opening of musk and orange blossom. Shortly later I could almost taste the amber and vanilla sweet elixir! This would make me be so bold as to ask a strange woman respectfully what she was wearing and give her an enthusiastic compliment. It held on tight to my masculine skin on the wrist so I assume it is a close skin scent which can be both very discreet and also perfect for an enchanting night with a significant. If it's any indication of the effect on a woman's neck I could not keep my nose from dipping to my wrist for most of the day, very sensual and magnetic! I now see why it is consistently listed with Dior Poison, TFBO and Coco Noir etc. when a "certain" forum topic comes up looking for bottle suggestions....it deserves it!
Scent - 4/5

Kind Regards, Plat ~

Creamy orange blossom laced with musk and drizzled with honey. Smells smooth, sexy and polished. Utterly feminine and sultry yet somehow clean and fresh. This is definitely a favourite of mine. Sillage and longevity both are stellar. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I could say that it brings out the seductress in you.

Every week, I play poker with a group of guys and they don't have the most discerning noses. They also aren't prone to dishing out compliments on the regular. Because of this, they have been the perfect test group in my search for a great new signature!

For the last few weeks, I've been playing roulette with a box of perfume samples I picked up at Sephora to see if any of them would be a hit with the guys. I was beginning to lose hope until Narciso Rodriguez EDT!

Let me tell you, this scent does not dissapoint! The other night, one of the guys came in a little late and as he made his rounds to say hello, he exclaimed "Damn, it smells like woman in here! Mmmm."

One point for Narciso Rodriguez!

A little later in the night, and after a few drinks, as another of the guys leaned in for a goodbye hug, I got a "Mmmm, you just smell sooo good!" and a second hug!

Another point for Narciso Rodriguez and I'm sold!

I picked up the full sized bottle and so far, I love it! I was a bit weary on the sillage as I've read it tends to be more of a skin scent but I spirtzed a bit on my inner elbow, and also a bit on my hair at the back of my neck so that as my hair moved, you could just smell a waft of the perfume and it was more than enough sillage for me.

It's a softer scent than I'm used to, but in a carnal seductive way. Sensual. Feminine. Sultry. There is just something so complex about this fragrance.

Narciso Rodriguez, I'm so glad I found you!

I first tried this shortly after it was released, and found the opening overpowering. It reminds me of Lovely by SJP, but in a stronger, much more assertive version. The development did nothing to enhance the fragrance on my skin. I only got a confused floral with ann underlying plasticky note, and as time went by nothing changed...Not for me.

If only I could purrrrrr, this stuff would bring it out of me. Enchanting, feminine and uber sexy !
I discovered this last winter from a Sephora holiday sampler and I knew after the initial spray it was for me. Its different from my usual tendencies but maybe that's the allure; not your perfume for Sunday School! Its too dark and tempting. Should be a sin but thankfully it's not. It's a must.

Long ago this use to be my signature.
I just bought it again and its instant love.
Musky, warm and very sensual. Defiantly a very sexy perfume !
It develops into a skin scent that's just better than your skin ,,,
Really pleasant and never had anything but compliments on this one. Sweet musky vanilla and osmanthus make a beautiful combination of intimacy .
I recently bought the new ( white bottle ) Narcisso and am head over heals with it and its beauty musky smell and simplistic look of its bottle. Wearing it daily made me remember the "Narcisso for her " in the black bottle as something in the dry down and the musk in it reminded me of the other.
THIS is gorgeous , so very sensual perfume !
Its funny because the musk is perfection as it falls in the middle of clean and a musky slightly sexual skin scent. I often get ; mmm you smell like you just stepped out the shower ,,,, and then other days I get , wow your perfumes oozes sensuality its so sultry and sexy ,,,,,
My husband loves this! He also loves the pink EDP !

Wow! At first smell, I was unsure about this fragrance, it is so unusual and so interesting to anything that I've smelled before. BUT as time went on, I couldn't stop smelling my hand as I couldn't get enough of this fragrance. It is the most different and unique perfume that I own. Although this is a EDT, it is very strong and long lasting compared to the EDP version. It is a strong white floral with an addictive musk quality. Absolutely LOVE it and LOVE the packaging too. This is a fragrance for the woman who is very sure of herself.

Love this fragrance! It is very easy to wear, soft, and comfortable. To me it just smells like skin with a hint of dirty hair. I know that sounds unappealing but it is actually very sensual, sexy, and raw in a dark-ish kind of way. It is not sharp, synthetic, aggressive, or offensive in any way so you can get away with wearing it to work even. It becomes an extension of your own natural scent and will make you feel warm and secretly seductive.

I finished my 30 ml bottle and the next day bought a 100 ml bottle. I repurchase my perfumes very, very rarely so this means something. And even more rarely I buy a 100 ml perfume bottle. That means a lot.

Musk (quite a big amount of it) and white flowers together give a dramatic, deep, unusual, a bit "damp" scent that makes my mind become "dirty", totally crazy in a romantic, sensual way. In French there's a word "audace"-audacity (often used for somebody very naughty, daring, original, confident), and here it is - a bottle of audacity.

I go on a hiatus from NRFH: EDT when the warmer season's are in session. Come fall and winter this stuff carries and wears quite well. I don't care if its marketed for women, I can't resist its musky notes, and prolonged, woody sentiments. Totally comfortable with this one on.

I came across this scent back in 2006 and fell in love instantly. Even though this scent is from Cuban-American designer it is very French to me (I know it gained popularity in France). Stylish black bottle hides seductive and powerful scent inside, just like a Parisian woman who wears sexy and expensive lingerie under perfectly styled simple clothes.

I don't want to dwell on notes as others described them well but I just want to add that I get a hint of anise in this scent too.

On me it lasts good 6-8 hours and I get complements about it even at the end of the day.

Seductive, interesting and sensual... I love/lust for this gorgeous black bottle that is so popular, and for good reason. It is a bit aggressive at first, but I like that. It is never vulgar or cheap smelling, very sophisticated and assertively feminine all the way through. Compared to SJP Lovely, NR is more sensual, while Lovely is more pretty and proper. Sometimes you just want to be the bad girl. Haven't tried the EDP yet but have a feeling I don’t' need to.

The first impression I get from this perfume is not pretty but sexy, very musky clean but dark, unusual but not quirky. sensual but unmistakenably feminine.

It does smell a tad like SJP but SJP lacks the oomph that this has.

This is a really nice musk that deviates from other typical musks and I think this can be worn both day and night.
I am a fan of amber in scents and yes I know you're there (hey gurrl!) I get a wheaty rooty kinda smell there (I think this adds the mystery to it)? aswell fresh bergamot with the orange blossom which is smooth. I don't detect any vanilla in this, well not the typical vanilla anyways..

Overal very nice, very 'for the musk fans' quite a mature scent or for those who are young and daring. A good all rounder scent. I like!

One of my favorites!

Far from the cliché "chocolatey patchouli bomb" fragrance for women. The musk does it all. Wild and sexy with delicate touches of flowers. It is indeed very well blended, and performances are great.

An intimate and alluring perfume, I love wearing it in the streets of Montmartre during a cold autumn afternoon. Furthermore my man loves it on me.

This is what I want to smell when I think musk (not the boring white version)! Dirty, fecal musk beneath the sour Mademoiselle-like tones, wonderfully mingling with orange blossom. No soapy clean stuff here. Very sexy, erotic piece. Also, for me, this is quite a black scent somehow, related to night time.

The first spritz was incredibly awkward for me, maybe it was too much musk. But then within minutes it exposed a really pretty orange blossom combination, very very light and feminine and just lovely. If you like "clean" scents, you'd love this; it's clean in the nontraditional sense. It's something someone could mistake for either your own scent (yeah, yeah - "your skin but better"), perhaps your -very expensive- shampoo, or what have you. It's definitely nothing offensive and doesn't scream "I'm wearing perfume," which I love about it. Most definitely very feminine, but I wouldn't classify it as "old" or "young" - it's femininity of all ages. I'd wear this in the daytime, definitely not night time (it's just such a perfect daytime scent), and it could easily be a signature.

I got it first time when it just appeared on the market - a friend brought it for me from France as a gift.
I got it... and i fell in love. Immediately and forever.
Time passed and after 11 years i bought it again.
Did you ever had a feeling of the most beautiful days of your life coming back? This is it!
Though i understand - Narciso Rodriguez is not for everyone, because it sounds different on different people - this perfume is definitely for me.
It's weird - yes. It's like puzzle that you have to collect over and over again. It's incredibly sexy (my man is going crazy if i wear it :)))
It's one of those things that may not suite everyone, but if it suites you - it's LOVE!

I bought this perfume as a blind buy, mostly because of the hype surrounding this perfume and because I like "skin" scents. I purchased the EDT rollerball, and I don't know if that's the reason it smelled the way it did, but it was a HAMMERING of amber. Like, that's all it smelled like. I put it on and hope the amber would give way to other scents, but no. This went on for a good 2 hours until finally I had to scrub my wrists. I don't know if this is what it was suppose to smell like, but I couldn't ship that bottle back to Sephora quick enough. Try this before you buy for sure.

This is a very interesting scent to me. I can not decide whether I really like it or despise it. Sometimes it smells like the most beautiful scent I have ever encountered (can not compare with any other perfume) but sometimes it seems very overpowering and I worry that I might be killing other people's sense of smell. I will try it a several more time but right now it seems like we will not be very compatible.

first of all, be careful about the reviews because i think this perfume shows itself differently on every single skin(more than the other perfumes)
because even all the people said this one is better than the edp version of this, it smells same with the edp. because of this, this one was a waste of money for me because i have the edp version already. anyway.

lifesaver in summer, it is light and pleasable. its light but it doesnt mean that its fresh. completely different story, you will understand when you smell this.

but i think, on me, it doesnt smell sexy or seductive. its comfortable, nice, unique.

This smells weird on me- really, really weird. I think the notes are floral but they smell like plastic on me. The fragrance is described as musky, but I can't smell a bit of musk. Using this was not a pleasant experience, so needless to say, I won't be doing so again.

This is one of those situations where I'm really sad because a scent that so many see as very sophisticated just does not work on me at all.

I'm pleased with this purchase. One note that I feel is strong that other reviewers have not mentioned much is the white floral - I get quite a bit of jasmine in this scent. The light, clean musk is definitely there, but the jasmine on top is quite noticeable on my skin. This EDT is no shy, weak shadow of an EDP - it has its own identity. This is a sexy scent. I feel like I can wear this day or night, any season.

Tried this again and now I'm in love. Takes about 15 minutes to develop on my skin and maybe 30 on clothes. Very linear scent and long lasting on clothes and OK longevity on skin so I always spray both. Actually great longevity for an EDT; better than some EDP's I have. Also love that the gift set has hand cream and body lotion so the beautiful aroma isn't washed down the drain like most that contain shower gel.

As a true musk-hater, I was shocked at how wearable the perfume is - most probably due to the perfect combination of said musk with vetiver and the bitterness of orange blossom. This combo is responsible for the velvety feminine character of the scent. I'd love to wear it for an evening at an elegant jazz club or the theatre - naturally alog with a black suede dress.

I've found this one very difficult to pigeonhole. The initial burst is a sharp floral note and quite overpowering, but it calms down very quickly. The musk is there, but on me its not that striking. The strongest note I found was one of fruity cocktails, passionfruit, melon, tropical fruit and cherry brandy liquor of all things, but the fruity notes aren't sweet or sickly because of the musk. This is an unusual fragrance-its very feminine but to me its quite innocent, playful and fun rather than sultry and sexy. It's perfect for long summer days and holidays. The sillage is minimal but its staying power is good. I liked this a lot.

Im always curious how others perceive this scent. For me it is such a borderline experience. My favourite bottle, sophisticated and mysterious. Whats inside has its own individual life, it cant be tamed. It decides which days i can wear it comfortably. Some days its sharp all musk detergent intrusiveness, leaves me asking "why??" . However, on those days when it allows me, its truly my close friend ; Empowers me , i feel strong and feminine in an artistic way. Moments of clarity, contentment, ambition.

oooo la la!
sensuality in a bottle,a crisp old style sensuality it's almost a demure sexy.
straight up from the packaging you get an Itch, a Lean smooth black bottle like this can only seduce you in.and it is, very inviting in such a soft musky way.

the potion takes over you but in such a mellow cloud,you just don't mind it being so dominating.

quality and elegance never go out of style and that is why ten years after its still holding it's own in a very celebrity fruitpatchouli market.

This fragrance does something to me, makes me think of sexy time. Pretty sure it's the warm close to the skin scent it has, brought on by the musk. This is definitely a musk perfume. My sister thinks it can smell a bit "old lady" (and I agree to a certain extent) but I think it's because she smelled it on our mother the first time she ever smelled it. I have a feeling if she would have smelled it on a sexy younger woman she would think differently, because she didn't completely say no to it, like she does with 90% of perfumes. But if you wear too much of this it can smell a bit older lady, the trick is just a hint. IMO this is a scent for a sensual woman, I think of Kleopatra when I smell this. This is a very well made musk.. sensual, sexy, classy, clean, warm.

I may have reviewed on this one before. If I have, please humour me. Simply cannot help but praise this mysterious bottle of magical potion. The black bottle in the pink box is my review. This is one of the most unique fragrances. I wore it yesterday and received a compliment. It is soft, but powerful, fruity, but musky and so earthy. It is pure girl power, an iron fist in a velvet glove, or a tigress with a silky skin. Light years ahead! An absolute must have for those who adore musk. If not, stay far away as you may find it overwhelming.

I can't say I like it - there is just too much musk, but it's not an annoying perfume. The sad thing is that the nice, sweet floral top notes don't last long at all and the perfume disappears into nothing quite fast. What remains is a very natural, earthy musk, where the musk is quite toned down, compared to many of the other N.R. perfumes.

My favorite scent on a woman by far.

All the other standard 'rose' styled female scents bore me to no end (including the EDP version of this one)...I guess it's the equivalent of all those 'citrus' ones that men have (which bore me too).

NARCISO RODRIGUEZ (EDT) is light years ahead of most other typical female scents. If you're a female and you're tired of all the similar women's scents out there (and wish they'd have more variety like the mens' range for a change), then try this one. Make sure it's the black EDT bottle (pink box), and not the pink EDP bottle (black box).

Even the bottle is well designed; having an opaque inner layer that protects from sunlight and adds to the sophisticated design of the glass. A well thought out fragrance from the bottle to the scent.

I'd wear this myself if it wasn't my girlfriend's signature scent.

It's excellent.

Narciso Rodriguez for Her is spectacular.

It's sensual and discreet at the same time. It doesn't have a huge sillage, but everyone can smell you. It's intense yet not overbearing. It's feminine, although it does have some masculine elements. It has a retro vibe, although it stays modern throughout the years.

It's an almost perfect second skin perfume, in the sense that it doesn't quite scream "I WEAR PERFUME", but it rather melts with your own skin chemistry, making it soft and sensual. Yet, everyone will smell it, and it's undeniably, boldly sexy. What I mean is everyone will smell you, but no one will think that this scent is actually a perfume. Complex, and almost impossible to describe.

Looking at the notes, I can definitely say that the most noticeable and present is musk. Very animalic. Orange blossom is also really noticeable, giving it a bit of lightness. It dries down to a gorgeous woody and animalic scent, a tad rosy.

Beautiful, persistent longevity paired with that weirdo "I'm here, but I actually don't exist" sillage makes an extremely great performer during all seasons.

I think it's one of the sexiest scents I've smelled. I, as a man, find it really appealing on a woman's skin, but I have to admit it's gorgeous on me, because of all this complex effect it has, and that wonderful dry down. Weird, but beautiful.

Dear Reader,

This fragrance of N.R is a decent Orange and Lemon Blossom perfume with a whispering touches of amber and musk to give it some warmth to the powerful citruses .

Personally this scent isn't really ground breaking and unique, since I smelled this in a lot of latin gardens and native perfume brands that adore citrus blossoms of all kinds and producing very vivacious and refreshing toilette perfumes at a cheap price.
This perfume ,I can detect the smell of homely roots that NR was very comfortably familiar with but he added his own personal touches that make it have more character than just mere citrus blossom fragrance which is good.

This fragrance is very good if you like vivacious but fresh hussy like citrus blossom fragrances , it oozes all that , its very pretty and very A typical scent that wont really make you stand out with the citrus perfumes that are going around these days but its still a pretty but not thrilling fragrance.

Will I buy this?,
No i'll stick to Patou, Chanel. Cartier and Dali for me since its up my alley personally, but this fragrance is a good start to the right direction in the perfume realm for first timer's.
It makes a good gift for first timers or people that enjoy citrus dominant perfumes with a tad hussy touch to it that isn't cheap nor elegant either, just "decent" enough to have a pleasant presence . the silage is decent and the staying power is modest like 3 hrs tops.

I can best describe this in textures. NR for Her edt is like snuggling a soft knit blanket through a layer of tulle. Or like a dancer's satiny leotard under a starched tutu. Soft and cuddly, but diffused through a layer of something a little scratchy. Entirely beautiful and womanly in an abstract way.

I was hesitant to try NR For Her (EDT, black bottle) because I already had SJP’s Lovely—but I went for it. They are close, and if you make a snap judgment and don’t give For Her enough of a chance to test properly, you could make the mistake of thinking SJP’s Lovely is the same, or close enough. But no, they are clearly very different. For Her is a welcoming scent, makes me think of a clean comfy, luxurious bed with down pillows, sprinkled with Orange blossoms. There is a silky creaminess to it (not milky). For Her was created before Lovely, and really precedes Lovely in every way. I do like Lovely, but find it to be a watered down version, or a loosely based sketch, of For Her. (Of course the advantage of Lovely is that it is more affordable.) For Her is so lush, it brings beauty and luxury to my work day (granted, For Her (EDT) stays close to the skin, but that makes it a perfect office scent). Fabulous drydown—a warm spring day in May. The Orange Flower note in For Her is divine, and quite concentrated for an EDT! At first I thought it was Jasmine, but it makes perfect sense now—Orange Flower (this note stands out the most for me). If you’ve ever smelled an Orange Tree in bloom, you know that intoxicating scent. Delighted to have it at my fingertips.

So this is how I like this...
It 's really scary to review a perfume wich sits in a lot of cupboards, toilet closets, on your love lists and as your signature, but this is my version on this edt :
The first thing I get is a powdery flower I am not familier with Osmanthus I guess. I am not sure I like this early but quick blast.
Far from what a lot others here have written I don't very easily pick any other flower here.
The bergamot or citrusy is powdery and creamy , not sheer.
This is all about amber and musk to me- I don't know what makes it sexy, but this got it still. Probably amber and here it is very present on me.
As many reviewers written below me, is the resemblence to the pink bottled edp and SJPs Lovely, well ok I agree to some point , but the edt is sharper in the beginning and lacks the rose.
I find the pink edp more resembling my red bottled Narciso in colour and this made me think more of the creamy, synthetic to some , but ohh so lovely Pozo in black. Except that this has no liquorice, I imagine and plan to use this for the day and continue with Pozo in black for evening.
I really like these not to flowery scents, I guess that's one of my signums. The amber is toffee creamy , powdery and softens to a beautiful skinscent.
Vetiver sometimes can get a little masculine , but here I hardly sense the note.I would say I like my Narciso trio very much !
In Colour, this edt and eau de musk. All lovely !

I'm glad I bought a sample before I bought, because I would have regretted it.On my skin I got a blast of nail polish remover and that's all I could smell from this. I'm sure its great on others! But this just doesn't work for me. At all.

I've had this fragrance for a while, and is one of my few that is used sparingly (yes, less than the Chanels and Guerlains, etc) because of an irrational fear of using it up. This is "feminine" and very sensual, but modern and confident not coquettish.

Let me be a bit self indulgent and explain: The first time I smelled this was via a small sample back in 2004 on the East coast and thought it was beautiful, and I remember rummaging through my purse in the heat of a July night in southern California, finding a now empty sample vial and sniffing the cap absentmindedly. The floral and musk combination made my heart skip a beat. I knew then I needed to buy a bottle. NR for Her EDT is quality.

Body chemistry is such a mysterious thing. I was sure this would be great since most of the reviews were positive and more importantly, the list of ingredients were exactly what I usually wear. But, unfortunately, this smells like shaving lotion on me and my eyes are burning. So if you like Cuir Cordoba, Cuir Beluga, or Back to Black, then this is not for you. On me this smells "perfumey" and I don't want to smell like I'm wearing perfume, I just want to smell good. I also found that this is nowhere near the quality of Keiko Mecheri or Guerlain.

I see that so many of you ladies love this perfume... Am I the only one who is not swept of her feet by this fragrance? :) It's a pleasant smell, nice.. but just not for me. I'm 25 and I see it as a more mature perfume, for women in their mid 50s...dressed super elegant.. I think the EDT is nicer anyway. Overall, I think it's a good perfume, but I just dont "feel" it right now.

The EDT is a friend's signature scent: warm, sexy, and floral.

So, I decided to sample it for a few days, but it doesn't seem to agree with me. Sharp vetiver, soapy orange… then it just disappears in under an hour.

I spent days wearing the EDP on my left wrist and the EDT on my right. An odd thing happened… I could smell the rose, I could smell the orange blossom, but I couldn't smell the musk in either! Everyone else could, but despite burying my nose deep into the scent, I could not pick up on it. However, when I walk outside and get a whiff of air, my skin releases something glorious from both arms.

Several days of trying to decide between the two has finally lead to me just buying both. I love them both for different reasons. The EDP is creamy and floral (and I hate floral!) and the EDT is (please excuse the phrase) my-skin-but-better.

If I had to choose between them, I'd never be able to. I would just be stuck in indecision until the stores closed.

I was so excited to get a sample of this one, my expectations were high and Narciso fullfiled them all. I can't even describe how wonderful this fragrance is. It's musky , powdery- it's screams I'm a sexy lady and I know it! But on the other hand it brings you this feeling of warmth and safety. It takes you back to ancient Egypt. I can imagine Cleopatra or Nefertiti would smell like that. Definetly a fragrance for a strong sexy independent woman. I'm buying this one asap.

At laaaaast.. after 19 days of waiting it is on my table. My favorite perfume of all times. Unfortunately, on my skin it has a short longetivity and sillage, because my skin is "eating" this masterpiece. This perfume reminds me of Jesus del Pozo's In Black, but only a little. Perfect for girls "who run the world"..

Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDT is a sensual, intimate scent. The line's signature slightly powdery and slightly animalic Egyptian musk accord is highlighted here in all its warm, seductive glory. It is enhanced by a dusky orange blossom note paired with fruity osmanthus and a gorgeously grounding vetiver note. NR For Her EDT stays rather close to the skin but projects just enough that it can be detected when someone enters your personal space. A wonderful choice for a signature scent for women of all ages.

I tried this on skin once before, but only on a small patch of skin before bed and after a long day of "smells" so I can't say it had a fair shake. Today I decided to experiment with it again.

I think the black, minimalist bottle may have biased me and I anticipated a dark, heavy, almost masculine fragrance... something I like to smell on others but that doesn't fit my personal aesthetic. And it's true that on first blast it strongly reminds me of CK Be, so much so that I broke out my long dormant bottle of it for comparison. CK Be was always a scent I loved to smell but since I had to be in a particular mood to wear it, I rarely went out with it on.

As it turns out, the comparison isn't completely crazy as the two fragrances share several notes in common: Musk, Bergamot, Vanilla and Amber. But after the top notes burn off, the bergamot dies down and the similarity fades. CK Be wears more like a spicy men's cologne while Narciso Rodriguez for Her turns into a distinctly feminine, even soft white floral. I thought she'd be more daring, but she's a lot more demure than I gave her credit for. She's really quite lovely and exotic.

The longer it sits on me the more I enjoy it. It's a good sign when I can't stop sniffing my skin. Time will tell how often I break this deep beauty out, but I doubt the bottle with gather dust like... ahem... someone else.

Call me crazy but... I am CONVINCED there are some sort of pheromones in this. It's got an odd 'pull' underneath it, once it's worn into warm skin, that I've only ever felt in pheromone compounds.

Wonderful. It does make me actually wonder... lol

EDIT TO ADD: ----------

When I first smelled a sample of this on a small spot on my arm I disliked it. "Yech, soapy clean. Not for me." I remember thinking.

Boy was I wrong and too quick to judge! I don't know what random review I stumbled across that made me retry it but I thank them greatly.

It is now my signature. I love how it clings to clothing til washed and projects from that even enough to be noticed at close range.

As for the actual scent, it does start a bit sharp from the vetiver undertone and the white musk, also sweet from the vanilla and osmanthus. Give it a minute to settle and don't stick your nose in it right away! (too sharp if you do). If you're patient you'll be rewarded with a candied bergamot rind feel full of sweet vanilla, layered over a smooth, sexy-clean white musk with a chewy sweet apricot feel from the osmanthus. Also the creaminess of the orange blossom melds so well with these musk tones that I didn't notice it at all at first- I thought I disliked these before NR! Delightful. Just a beauty. Don't overdo it on the sprays, this baby's strong. 2 or 3 sprays and it lasts upwards of 7 hours on myself and I get whiffs of it off and on the whole while.

Perfect balance between sexy, clean, & sweet for me. I feel it 'gets' me. This is why it has earned the throne as my signature for quite a while. Also the fact that it has reduced multiple people to 'mmmm...' ing as they inhale deeply up my arms helps ;) haha

I can't believe nobody has mentioned that strong black licorice smell when you first spray! So many people like this, but I can't get into it. It's like an even more masculine version of Eau des Merveilles. Now comparing anything to that can become a tragedy quickly since it is my ultimate favorite, and I couldn't help but think the dry down was so similar with the vetiver, and my mind went there. Now I can't turn it back. Also fades quickly on me.

Mysterious and OH SO POWERFUL... Narcisco Rodriguez is a fragrance designed for the woman who knows EXACTLY what she is doing. I don't have much more to add to any of the glowing reviews here.

While I can't remember how I discovered NR, I believe it was during one of my random trips to Sephora…

But…

At first sniff…I wasn't too sure about it. I do remember laying down for bed wondering what I kept smelling and quickly remembered NR. First thing the next morning...I headed back to Sephora to pick up a bottle and the rest was history. NR is a staple in my fragrance wardrobe and I am NEVER without it.

I think it's best suited for the fall and winter.

What I love most about this fragrance is its warmth (cozy charcoal grey/camel colored cashmere sweater warm), longevity, and how many compliments I receive whenever I wear it. My employees would comment on how they always thought of me whenever they smelled NR -- no matter who else was wearing it, which is always one of my primary intentions -- to wear a scent that is memorable.

What else can I say…?

This is a beautiful warm orange-amber-musk combo that last and last and last.

Oh…and the price point is great for such a luxurious fragrance! It smells a lot more expensive than it really is.

It’s a wonderful scent! And wonderful is the woman who wears it. She is courageous, determined, sincere and conscious of her charm…
I have to admit it - it’s one of my favorite night-out scents, but should be worn with the right mood.
Beautiful musk mixed with osmanthus and orange blossom. I do not smell much amber neither vanilla, but the scent is bold and very long lasting and it’s a real catcher of compliments.

I'm the happy owner of a bottle of Narciso Rodriguez for her. It's magic in a bottle, smells like a flower garden in a summer night. When I sprayed on me I'm feeling special, mysterious and powerful. And is amazing what a perfume can do to a person.
For people who will read my review I recommend the movie; Perfume:The story of a murderer.

This is a scent I think I will need to mature into. the powerful musk reminds me of the cozy quilts my grandmother kept in her cedar chests. Initially this scent comes off sour and sharp. It mellows out into a distinctive and creamy floral accord and has absolutely no fruitchuli or candy floss dimension to it. This scent is not for me right now, but I am curious to see if it will be less sour with my skin chemistry in 5 years when I am forty.

This is a very long lasting feminine fragrance. I would say it smells best in the Winter. I have a preference for the black bottle over the pink. Owned the two but gave the pink away recently. I have the hair spray, mini bottles, and have tried the cream. The cream does not smell like the black bottle at all.(Just to give you a tip!)
I have now recently bought the shower gel, lotion, shampoo and conditioner from oilsandincense.com These are NR types. I'm awaiting their arrival..:)

این ادکلن ظاهرا محبوبیت یادی بین بانوان دارد.معتقدم که بوی خوش مرد و زن ندارد و نباید بوی گلها رو منحصر به بانوان دانست.

البته برخی ادکلن ها هم هستندکه بویی مطلقا زنانه دارندو استفاده از انها برای یک مرد ممکن نیست.امااین نارسیو رودریگز اینطور نیست.
باتوجه به محبوبیتی که این این عطر بین زنان و برخی مردان داشت من رو مجاب کرد تا چشم بسته و بدون تست سفارش بدم.انتظار زیادی از این عطر داشتم ولی زمانی که بدستم رسید با انچه که تصور میکردم فاصله داشت.با اولین استفاده من رو یاد ارامیس900 انداخت.بوی چون انتظار هر رایحه ای داشتم جز رایحه رز.چون توی ترکیباتش اثری از رز ندیده بودم.بوی مشک و رز و شکوفه پرتقال روایح واضح عطر هستند اما رایحه مرکباتی هم اونا رو همراهی میکنند ولی کمی ضعیف هستند.
نت های پایانی میشه بوی وانیل و گیاهی حس کرد و بوی رز و مشک فروکش میکنند.
هم تلخ و هم شیرین و اندکی سنگین و تاریک.بوش زیاد زنونه هم نیست.شخصا از این عطر راضی هستم ولی در اندازه ای نیست که ایتنقدر بزرگ شده.بدون تست نخرید.

I fell in love with this fragrance after I received a sample, and I ended up buying a rollerball version of it. It is deep & rich, sensual & warm. This is a very well made sophisticated perfume IMO. A perfect balance of floral and citrus notes, combined with beautiful musk. I also detect some spicy notes, which I absolutely love. Longevity is very good on me, I got 4 - 6 hours. Silage mostly sits close to the skin with a small trace in the air, just enough to make someone want to get closer to you. A beautiful fragrance that is now on my top shelf, I highly recommend this one, it is amazing.

NR for Her
She is dark and sexy. A little mysterious and a bit dirty. Once you get a whiff of her she's stuck in your head and can't get her out. You want to be near her, touch her, please her, be totally consumed by her. She sets off an aura of self confidence and class. When NR for Her is present all eyes are on her.

Longevity 6-8 hours on skin
Sillage is moderate, but I have noticed people want to get as close to you as possible when wearing this :)

Got a smell of this perfume and I am a fan. I'm 18 years old but feel this perfume is a little too old for me. I am usually into sweet fruity scents and this is very musky. As soon as a smelled it I instantly thought of a successful new yorker shopping in Barney's. It's a classic scent for a woman around her 30's. For a power type I think.

I ordered small samples of both the EDT and the EDP, I cant wait to try them! I am thinking Ill like the EDT better as its described as more complex...will update in a bit. This is supposed to be a very sexy and wintery fragrance and lately I am feeling the need for amping up my sophistication :)

edit: I just tried on the EDT, and its very similar to Lovely ...you know what, I actually think I like Lovely a bit better...its more citrusy .This one began with the same spicy/musky accord but, within 10 minutes it got very animalic and yes almost dirty (like a mans privates!).
Worst aspect is, it didn't last at all on me within 2 hours its barely there. OH well, glad I got a sample before I bought! Will see how the EDP compares tomorrow.

A very classy, dark and sensual fragrance. Fruity orange blossoms add something fresh and modern to a classic rose-musk-combination. Patchouli, Amber and Vetiver leave an earthy and Velvet like Impression.

Narciso Rodriguez for Her is for women, not girls! Not a statement about age, more about your confidence level. It's a gorgeous musky floral chypre with a powdery drydown; quite a warm and sensual fragrance that remains close to the skin. Try both the EDT and the EDP to see which one agrees with your body chemistry. You may be pleasantly surprised!

I absolutely love Narciso, It is such a unique smell. I cant describe what i smell since i have been using it for about 3 years now, but it settles beautifully on my skin. I go to look for a new scent but everything else is just so streamline and normal compared, its always nice to smell different, it is a very sexy, sensual, sophisticated but young scent for woman. It does have long lasting power also. Love love love!

Where to begin?? I have had a love love love relationship with Narciso for six years. I began with the EDT and then switched to the EDP only to return to my faithful EDT when I ran out. I find that the EDT stays longer and dries down better on my skin than the EDP. I find the latter to have a sort of chemical first few notes. I'm in love with this scent. I have strayed a few times in search of something as wonderful-- Tocca's Cleopatra and Ideal by Guerlain came close, but nothing comes close to the incredible chemistry that happens between my skin and this perfume. I could bathe in NRFH!!

It took me some time to realise that the Narciso Rodriguez EDT differs slightly to the EDP. Where the EDP features rose and patchouli, the EDT is much fresher with orange blossom, osmanthus and vetiver.

Narciso Rodriguez EDT is less sexy than the EDP, but is much easier to wear, with a more clean and crisp musk note. You could alternate between both concentrations by wearing the EDP during the cooler months, and the EDT during Spring and Summer.

This fragrance is essential for anyone that enjoys a quality musk. The EDP unfortunately didn't work with my chemistry, so it was a relief to discover this EDT featuring a beautiful white floral accord.

At certain stages, Narciso Rodriguez EDT does resemble a bar of quality soap. I don't mind smelling clean every now and then, so this doesn't bother me as much as it does some others.

For an EDT, the lasting power is superb. I find that this fragrance lasts even longer on fabric. The projection is also rather impressive. I'll admit that Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely and Kiehl's Original Musk are slightly similar, however that's not to say that Narciso Rodriguez EDT is not original nor worth its rather expensive price tag.

For me, this rides the border between pungent and interesting. It is a bit sharp for my taste, probably due to the chypre-ness, but interesting, and softens down to woody muskiness after the initial blast. I don't see myself wearing this every day but I will try again to see how this grows on me. Definitely worth a try if you're into woody stuff or are just bored with the fruity floral jam that's flooded the market.

This scent is amazing, I got it for sample and then purchased a fairly cheap bottle of the EDT, because I loved it so much. I suppose that it was the EDT figures in to why it has almost zero staying power on me. Not sure, maybe it is my skin chemisty, because my original sample was the perfume, bought from another place, and it also had no power. I sprayed it so many times, and it disappeared in mere minutes.

What a disappointment that it doesn't last! I adore this scent. For me, there was a fresh sexiness to it, which did not feel prim, due to the musky whisper. Someone in the reviews mentioned laundry soap, and this was exactly what I thought of when I originally sampled this scent. I realize that laundry soap doesn't sound too sexy, or even pleasant, but there was something unbearably intimate to this...it reminded me of a sexy woman washing her lingerie in a sink with a little laundry powder, in a little flat in Paris. I have no idea why this image stuck out for me, but it did and it's why I call it fresh sexiness, it's a clean sensual scent which still manages warmth and intimacy without being overwhelming. I think it wore better for me in the heat, as that seemed to make the fragrance swell and bloom more somehow. It has a quiet sultriness to it.

You are so lucky if this scent lasts on you (if you love it, I mean), and I am jealous ;)

I got this perfume as a gift, after spraying only one time, I knew it was nothing for me. I would say it would rather fit an older (mature) woman, 50+. Very strong, dominant fragnance.

NR-For Her
One word for the fragrance - Beautiful !
Its not the regular floral or fruity kinds.
Its soft, very feminine, elegant and sophisticated.
After the first few minutes of sharp tangy notes, comes the real fragrance, when it evolves into this nice rosy citrusy musk.
The musk retains into the longer notes. A lil sweet rosy tangy musk.
Absolutely beautiful feel !
You feel good and happy sniffing the musk and knowing you smell gorgeous for the people and the room around you .
Sillage is like, there is this sweet musky aura around you. People near you will smell it and wouldn't help control, but take longer inhales just so to better enjoy the fragrance.
Longevity is good. 7+ hours easily .

Checkpoints for this --
>Women aged 25+
>Feel elegant feminine and lovable
>Like musky notes or if not, then want to try something different
>or if you are a perfumista or a fragrance lover and haven't tried it yet , then definitely DO try it !

Very sexy perfume. There's something delightfully prickling about it that invites diving in deeper, getting closer, breathing in more. BIG sillage that calls out to be noticed. The few times I've worn it out I've always had comments and other women asking what the fragrance is. Sadly - something about it, perhaps the strength or potency, gives me a headache and slight queasiness every time I wear it, so I've passed it on.

The opening of Narciso Rodriguez for Her EDT was not very pleasant on me. The musk was sharp and soapy. It was not 'clean', but more like translucent, or like a fog. I also get some leather aspect of osmanthus, but the apricot part is missing on me.

However, after about 3 or 4 hours, the musk fog dissipates and leaves out a lovely combination of orange blossom and vetiver. Now this part is indeed clean, green, floral, slightly woody, which vaguely reminds me of Mugler Cologne, only more feminine in NR for Her EDT. I'd not say it's sexy, but it exuberates an effortless grace.

The sillage is moderate and the longevity reaches almost 12 hours, which is impressive for an EDT and is absolutely wonderful as it leaves me plenty of hours with the pleasant base. This fragrance hides some sophistication under its simplistic appearance. I think blind buying this one is not a good idea.

this is so strange!
In the past, it never interested me, because I could only smell it very little, couldn't remember it, didn't recognize it on someone else. it was a total mystery to me why someone could call it "strong", I seemed to smell almoust nothing only some sharp citrus, orange flower bits, but nothing musky (isn't there sweet rose and patchouli also in the EDT version? at least I think I smell it). It was more of a physical reaction, my nose bit because of this initial sharpness. and since it came out this was always the same reaction and I had no reason to give it some time.
I thought, that I at least knew how anosmia to musk felt:
like a ghost passing by...like an ultrasonic perfume...
I tried to wear it to maybe change my smelling-patterns:-)...and also those enthusiastic reviews and reactions of people when I wore it, made me want to smell it too!!

then, funny enough, I bought a bottle: I smell more detail now, a big peachy accord, osmanthus I suppose (which I thought was a lilly of the valley first;-)), a bit of vetiver, clean patchouli devoid the dirty notes, vanilla (yes, it's really there) and some small very decent clean musc notes and woods. with a step back, it's at least the best rosy peach I know..anosmia is obviously something depending on olfactory experience (does anyone know?).

and still and again I am impressed by the different faces this fragrance obviously can show to different people.
now I also understand the success of that (I'm afraid, very) synthetical thing: reviving the chypre structure, it fulfils something, many women are looking for: being classical without touching the "old-fashioned" (which I wouldn't mind personally but for some gals it is obviously an issue). and, it is still quite modern and unique on the market...
that beeing said 10 years after its release. chapeau!

P.s. my husband HATES it, haha. he finds it to smell like a middle-aged promiscuous woman with big make-up in a cheap fur. tasteless and annoying...

What an amazing concoction. It's one creamy, complex blend of potent but not overbearing white florals. It manages to be very subtle, by that I mean you have to know your florals in order to know what you're smelling, I consider it unisex for that reason. You can't sense its femininity. Just awesome stuff.

someone said it smelled like nail polish at first, I agree but it goes away in a few minutes. Someone else said it reminded them of Ysatis by Givenchy, I also agree it's the Vetiver, amber, vanilla, musk, and Bergamot are all also found in Ysatis, what is similar is the dry down which is absolutely gorgeous, but the Ysatis has up front Tuberose and it's Animalic whereas NR is much softer. I got a sample and adore it I can't stop smelling my wrist so I bought the EDT in the black bottle, I still love my Ysatis but this seems more modern may end up being my signature fragrance bumping my Mon Jasmin Noir EDP by Bvlgari, we'll see I also bought Jasmin Noir EDP without even trying it, chart says if you like one you will like the other so we'll see...

I agree it smells like Lovely and I also think Inner Grace by Philosophy. However, the dry down was awful on my skin. It turned very chemical and metallic. Usually a floral chypre works very well with my chemistry, this one was unsuccessful. Since it was a gift I feel bad for never wearing it, needless to say I am not purchasing any more. Sorry Mr. Rodriguez!

This is my comfort scent!! Perfect for spraying on after a hard day at work, or to lift the mood on a grey winter's day. I just adore the shimmering, radiant orange note !!! It makes me feel that I have been transported to an enchanted orange grove somewhere in the middle east... and although there is no honey listed, the whole accord seems to drip with it, along with the most incredible warmth, happiness and good cheer. If ever I felt a perfume could put its arms around me, it's this one, and I just love it!!!

I was so confused as to what "musk" actually was in perfume until I received this beauty.

At my current job fours year ago before my boyfriend was my boyfriend, he was a mystery to me. However, somehow without really knowing each other I knew we would end up together. We have lived together for three years now and I know him like the back of my hand.

But before all the learning I was just a curious doe, sometimes he would pass from behind but I would still know he was there because of his scent. Now I understand that the trail he was living behind in the past was indeed musk. That natural but clean scent he left behind embedded my mind and I found it extremely irresistible.

When I received NR for her in the mail, I didn't know what to expect from the black, simple yet chic bottle. So without wasting a moment I spritzed it on my wrist and... oh my... it reminded me of those unselfish days. It was so reminiscent to the scent I smelt on my boyfriend (which is indeed his natural scent), but polished up and femi-fied (not a real word, I know). Those days where I was so curious about learning about someone else and so consumed in pleasing them, rather than pleasing myself. There really isn't anything like it.

It's just floral, sweet, spicy, musk that last from the time I put it on to the time I shower. The perfume is so personable it sticks close to the skin, and gives off a clean vibe. Also on my skin I detect all the notes listed on here except VANILLA, which by the way is one of my favorite components, but I somehow I do not miss it at all in here.

There's something innocent, but dark about it. Pure but knows all your secrets. This scent will always be a mystery to me, something I'll always be curious about until I wear it and learn it like the back of my hand, but it'll always, always be dear to be just because I have a strong personal connection with it.

In my head though, I imagine a really prestigious, chic, female wearing this.

Im never a fan of orientals or woody fragrances and will never be, however i will make an exception for this little baby. Ive gone through a shitload of musky and woody scents that i find to be way headache inducing and just too much for me to handle. I dont think i'd want to walk around town smelling like wood because how is that even attractive in a scent?? But hey thats just me and everyone is subject to their own opinion. I dont know why i keep going back to this perfume, everytime i have it on i feel like the sexiest woman alive, yes it is sexy as hell if your body chemistry agrees. Its just one of those perfumes that renders the power to boost my confidence. I do find it quite masculine and i know a few guys who do pull this off. A word of caution: you gotta be real careful with this, a little goes a long way.

I don’t understand why I took so long to put a review for my favorite perfume. This is my “breathtaking” fragrance like I said in a forum before. After reading great review of you guys and seen some of my favorite notes are listed here together I had a crush on this fragrance before I sniff.

I love the way Francis Kurkdjian works with orange blossom I think he knows how to handle orange blossom sweetness and musk together. Simply opening is heavenly, orange blossom, bergoment and musk combination stays hours and hours on my skin I like to catch my own skin smell when I’m wearing NR because it’s very beautiful and lovely. If I love the opening I love dry down more, as some of u mentioned here, yes dry down is little bit woody on my skin too but it works well with my skin chemistry. I want to say I cannot identify vanilla note in NR.

NR never disappointed me by any means, this has great staying power as I expected and it stays more than 8 hours on my skin and believes me it stays clothes after wash off.

Overall what I can say about this beauty is modern, sensual and sophisticated fragrance. If you love orange blossom, woody and musk feel free to test this, NR will never be disappointed you.

This fragrance has been described as ”classy”, “elegant,” “sexy ,” “perfect,” “a veil of rich musks and delicate florals”, etc on this very page, and rather than grope for ever more exciting copy-writer type adjectives and comparisons (and by the way, I wholeheartedly agree with all the rave reviews!) let me point out why I find this fragrance weird and amazing.

First, this is a state-of-the-art example of art topping reality. Its unique selling point seems to be the quantity of synthetic musks in the formula, the thought of which might be disgusting to some, but the effect of which is to enhance the wearer’s natural scent and pull it in a floral direction, without bumbling miserably into Yardley cottage-garden soliflore territory. Just an hour or so after spraying this on, I get the weird sensation of having spent a delicious afternoon in my fragrant clothes, between fragrant sheets, being smothered by warm embraces. I get the weird sensation of having LIVED as a beautiful, seductive creature, with the residue of my escapades on my skin.

Second: While I love the overall mood and effect of the fragrance, I am equally fascinated by how my brain analyzes what my nose is telling it, in unguarded moments. When I first spray this on, I catch a distinct odor of nail polish. Not nail polish remover, but nail polish. It gives a shiny, scintillating quality to the scent, for a few seconds that it is there (or until my nose gets used to it). And picking up a garment that has been sprayed some days before with Narcisco Rodriguez EDT, with my attention elsewhere, I catch the scent of strong laundry detergent, more of a body memory than an actual scent, since we use fragrance-free laundry powder where I live (and in Denmark as a whole). Laundry detergent’s scent formula is simply chock full of artificial musks. The weirdest thing is after a garment sprayed with Narciso Rodriguez has been laundered. The perfume, trapped into the fibers and presumably broken down into its components, turns into the scent of very fragrant detergent or fabric softener (in the league of Downy), so that my scarves and blouses smell like an idealized nursery or baby crib.

That these cultural definitions of “clean” can exist within the molecules of a perfume we all know as “insinuating,” “subtle” and “sexual”, is nothing short of amazing.

Someone close to me wears this and I have no clue who it is...it's driving me crazy. Nevertheless, I can't decide if I like this or not. Firstly, because of the connection I have with whomever this frag is worn by, but also the scent is really...classic. It's a smell that is lovely, gentle, sweet (as in innocent, not sweet as in sugary) blanket of softness. It makes me think of fuzzy angora sweaters, rabbit fur muffs on cold winter days and cashmere scarves. It is a comforting frag, and to me it's 'maternal', meaning I can imagine my baby boy nuzzling my neck and drifting off into a sound sleep...and remembering the way I smelled twenty years from now. That is what "For Her" is...mama's hugs and soft sweaters. It's not a "sexy" frag, but a frag I would wear nonetheless...except around the lady I know who wears this! AAARGH!!!! I am going to drive myself nuts until I can place it. *Great EDT, highly recommend for soft frag wearers*

I was at the Macy's perfume counter looking for, I don't know what, and came across NR For Her. It was such an attractive display and I couldn't resist a spritz of the EDP on the pretty pink ribbon. It was quite beautiful, but not what I was looking for, so I went on my way with the pleasant aroma of the EDP floating about me. Many days later, I came here and read the glowing reviews of the EDT and purchased it blind, thinking how different can they be, right? Indeed, how different can they be. Distant cousins by marriage, at best.

I have been in public places and gotten a whiff of a nearby woman and thought to myself, "That poor woman's deodorant isn't doing a very good job." My bottle arrived and loathe was I to discover that unfortunate woman's ill performing deodorant in my sleek black bottle of perfume! It was really quite shocking. I spritzed anyway, thinking it would change for me and all of the beautiful olfactory experiences I had read about would begin to unfold. It was not to be. My olfactory sensibility fights this from beginning to end with its very core. Yet, I can't stop sniffing. It really is a strange experience.

I can't understand it. The notes sound so dreamy, lush and sensuous but they combine to manifest so sharply - with an aggressive hiss to boot! My goodness, a funky feral cat doused in old school aerosol deodorant. Not my idea of a good time.

And despite myself, I keep sniffing. And despite my better judgement, I still have hope it will change. What a trip.

I am not a fan of 'safe' fragrances, at the same time, I rarely wear my quirky beloveds to very conservative client meetings. Today, I had an important one, so I dug out an old black-bottle EdT sample of 'For Her.' Perfect for the occasion.

For Her is all about bunny-soft musk - simple, effective musk; buoyant from the orange flower and bergamot and tender sweet osmanthus. FH is a sweet little thing, but don't mistake that for flighty or silly. I'm going to vehemently disagree with anybody who worries it might be too mature for them or even calls this in-your-face sexy. 'Sexy' is more animalic, fecal, raw. For Her is youthful, borderline virginal but at the same time coy and intelligent and oh so substantial in its simplicity.

Linear to the drydown: lasts about 8 hours.

NR For Her probably doesn't need another review. Sales figures are a testimonial to its popularity - a fact which is usually the kiss of death to me.(yes, I may be a perfume snob.) I had never tried this 'fume until, while cruising the glass shrines dedicated to perfume at my favorite local department store, I happened to be introduced to the rep for this line. He proved to be quite proficient in his knowledge about his scent lines and as we leisurely chatted about perfumes, he asked if I had tested For Her. Since my answer was negative, he brought out testers for the EDT and the EDP. I agreed to a spritz of each, one to each arm. Then the sniffing began. I have to admit that I liked the EDP at first. It was smoother, more perceptive to my nose and I immediately preferred it. But, the rep argued, the EDT was the better fragrance.

OK, how better? Just let it develop on the skin and keep smelling. So, I did...

What I discovered was a fragrance that was almost imperceptible on my skin. This needed another spritz, please. After the alcohol dissipated, I could catch hints of bergamot, peachy osmanthus, and sweet orange blossom. All were well blended and yet evident should one choose to seek them.

The heart of this glad song is musk - soft, creamy and very present - exquisite in its soft harmony with the florals. Amber, a personal favorite of mine, warms the composition and prepares the musk for the addition of vetiver and vanilla. The vetiver is noticable, but not in an earthy way. I don't really recognize the vanilla as an actual note in the drydown. I think it exists to tame and sweeten the vetiver. Much later, the vanilla finds its own voice. Along with the amber, For Her has a creamy, warm finish that encourages a human closeness to enjoy.

And yes, I did buy the EDT.

Now to a really interesting part of the story. You can stop reading if you've heard this before, but it was news to me...

It seems that Narciso Rodriguez was a personal friend of John and Carolyn Bessette Kennedy. When they were planning to be married, he developed this perfume for her hence the name of the perfume, For Her.

Interesting story, but may just be another urban legend.

This scent stands alone... it's a creamy, sexy, self- assured, intelligent, musky bottle of femininity. It works lusciously with my body chemistry and is a real head turner. I find it pleases both sexes with as many comments from females as males however it's silage is relatively intimate - certainly not in your face. I think it works just as well for day or evening wear. The colours of the bottles - the black of the EDT and the Pastel Pink of the EDP are perfectly suited - this smells black and pink! I actually slightly prefer the EDT for the amber and vetiver notes that seem to meld perfectly with the creamy vanilla and musk... my new signature scent.

Sophisticated, intelligent,sexy and womanly. This is not a scent for silly girls. This is not a scent for sweet girls. This is not a scent for girls. Period. This is a scent for WOMEN. Intelligent, confident, no bullshit, know what they want women. I LOVE this scent. I like the EDP version but I ADORE the EDT version! It's the amber, bergamot and orange flower that make the EDT so much better than the EDP IMHO. Especially the amber. To my nose this edition is a little more modern, fresher, sweeter, sexier. It's somehow manages to be salty and sweet simultaneously. And honestly I don't miss the patchouly from the EDP. I don't feel this is strictly a night time perfume, to me its really not that strong, it's more like my skin but better scent (if sprayed sparingly that is). I WISH this could be my skin's natural scent! I would wear this on any occasion, night and day, work and play. You could easily get away with wearing this to work with just one light spritz, spread out. Judging from my infatuation with this scent at this moment I feel confident that I will always and forever have a bottle of NR for her in my collection. It's simply foolproof.

My skin has the oddest way of amplifying the most masculine notes in every fragrance, so the few times I've tried NR EDT, it smells almost like a men's fragrance, with lots of vetiver and bergamot. I get a definite whiff of peachy osmanthus up front, and the musk is usually present, though not quite as intense as I expected from the reviews. NR really has a lot of presence and it's very well-crafted, in my opinion, so I think it's worth a try for anyone who's curious. It's interesting how different it seems to smell on everyone who's reviewed it here.

Wow...
This is FABULOUS with my chemistry, and may actually be something that may fit in with the need to find a musk type vetiver fragrance that will last longer than one of my favorites (Jo Malone Black Vetiver Cafe' ... which dissipates within a couple of hours on my skin).

With my chemistry, this fragrance goes very sweet in the high register, but over all-- has a very grounded chord, which would allow this to be used for business and pleasure. On me, this fragrance could easily become "my signature"- simply because I loved the smell of this upon waking up to it, after about 4 hours of wear. It is really GOOD with my chemistry, I think that I'm IN LOVE!

-------

Ever since Junior High School, I have always loved fragrances that have a hint at musk - and a mysterious sweetness. The first musk that I discovered was Coty's Wild Musk - and it is a fragrance that is so wonderful when worn by someone who can wear musks well.

In a quest to find something similar, I began a search in Fragrantica - looking for a perfume that would have a musk, this was one of the musks that showed up - and based on the positive reviews and feedback, I tested this product to see what my experience with it would be.

This is the type of fragrance that may smell very different on different people. I've found that with musks-- they either work with the chemistry, or may turn rancid... or go into an overly sweet and sickening range, which is NOT your desired effect.

Try this, see how you like it--

------------

From the other reviews, I'm curious to know how long this perfume wears. A number of people say that they LOVE the fragrance, but that it dissipates very quickly. I'm picky and selective, I want a fragrance to at least LAST 8 hours, otherwise, it is not a "signature fragrance" for me. I'm economical like that, and I don't like to respray through out a long day.

------------

There are a few fragrances that turn into a fabulous musky broth on my skin... this particular fragrance has that enchanting quality - as does First. This is a true test of chemistry to really see if something mixes well with your particular essence or not. This is fabulous on and wears much longer than the other fragrances by this designer.

I have openly detested florals my whole life, white being the worst of the offenders. I have completely ignored the existence of this fragrance because of its popularity and its notes. Today I received a sample of it in a swap, here's my thoughts.
This is what a white floral should smell like. A beautiful light musk with faint hints of vertiver and orange blossom. I hate to admit, but I love this and will be buying it as soon as possible. If anything NS for her has taught me not to judge the scent by its cover, always find out for yourself.

NR for Her is like vanilla ice cream. Or roast chicken. You take them for granted, and yet when they are prepared properly and well, and you are in the right mood, they are divine. You feel as if nothing else in the world will do. NR is nothing more or less than a supremely well done floral musk. To my nose there is also a nuance of fruit (especially in the EDP) which help make the fragrance luscious and very, very comforting. Delicate and airy, but distinctive and sensuous. Relaxing but not boring. Don't be fooled by its mainstream popularity. Give it a go.

So I got a sample of this from Sephora a few months ago; honestly I dont know if it was EDP or EDT. Nonetheless, it wasn't memorable to me. It didnt make me want to run and go buy it. So today, I'm reading a fashion magazine, and there I stumble upon this perfume with the sample insert flap. So I rub it on my wrist and OMG people, I could have rubbed the entire page over my body head to toe, lol! I loved it. (It's the EDT) I was sniffing my wrist all day. So now I want it. I will be specific and ask for a sample of the EDT from Sephora and give it a try to make sure I truly love it but so far I think this is staying on my wish list; so now I have yet another new love. It smells so heavenly and soft and romantic with a little unique twist to it. Just my style.

Nope, not for me. I thought I might get past the floral with the musk as I love musk particularly with sweet notes, but I just couldn't. Too floral.
Perfect if you are a Floral Lover.

I had EDT tester. It's a rich and heavy, yet dynamic and lovely floral bouquet. Each time it evokes a couple of associations: pink color, madame de Pompadour and Rococo style. This feminine fragrance has a strong musky character. And it made me panic each time I applied it trying to tame it: the opening notes are too strong for me.

I hated musk before being introduced to Narciso Rodriquez's For Him Musc Collection EDP. Not too long after that I purchased For Him, then Musc For Him Oil Parfum, then Essence EDP and most recently For Her. This fragrance just smelled beautiful on me and it could linger on my body as a skin scent for many hours. I found For Her much more suitable for my skin, with lower body temperature than most guys, comparing to the For Him as it is softer but still very sexy. However, I do layer this fragrance with an Oud or floral based fragrance sometimes when I want to create a more complex trail of fragrance.

I’m not going to touch on the notes or composition too much, as that information is quite easy to look up (also I’m not very knowledgeable). Overall impression: this perfume smells expensive. It is a beautiful – almost masculine – musk, interspersed with rose. Although it is a bit strong at first, it slowly mellows down to a sensuous “catch a sudden whiff of it” almost skin-scent. One spritz of this on me lasts most of the day, so I’m thrilled with the purchase. The longevity and unique composition (so different from typical florals) make it my signature scent, which is why I’m very hesitant about telling people about it!

Is it just me? I sprayed a drop on my wrist and was completely transported back to the late 80s when I wore Givenchy's Ysatis. Maybe NR is is a little sweeter and it hasn't got the legendary room-clearing *power* behind it beyond those first few minutes. NR gets soft very quickly and within 5 or 10 minutes is quite faded. An hour later and there's only a trace left.
Keep in mind that I haven't got a bottle of vintage Ysatis here to compare, but I got an incredible scent-memory with NR, and that doesn't happen for me very often. So I can't really review the NR because all I can 'smell' is 1989.

I agree with one of the reviews below, it smelled to me like springtime when I sprayed it on, just the whole carefree light lusty floral sensual vibe of the season, sophisticated but has a naughty side. I looove the osmanthus in this, it makes it a really unique/sensual/beautiful. If I had to give the whole composition a color, I was surprised to say I envision soft bluish purple shades.

To me, I would wear EDT in the daytime with a sundress, the EDP I feel is more for private time with a significant other. EDP if i had to give a color would be like its bottle, a soft fuzzy palest of pinks. Both highly refined, related, and easy to love.

I know the EDT is supposed to be musk/white florals and EDP is supposed to be musk/rose, but I wouldn't say either really scream out the flowers they claim to be. They're both very abstract although musky in their own way. And I wouldn't call either "sweet", but EDT is definitely to my nose more voluptuously warm edging on sweet. EDP is more of a chic clean naughty whisper . They are both very enticing and I feel extremely alluring wearing them, looking forward to trying more in the line. But EDP still my first love.

This was my signature scent for years. How could I resist anything inspired by the exquisite Caroline Bessette Kennedy? I've gone through at least four big bottles of it. Everything from the elegant, precious bottle design, to the way it looks on my dressing table, to the perfect spray mechanism, to the way it wears is perfect for me. It starts out deliciously floral and softly musky, and then reverses itself on me over the course of the day. I carry a rollerball of this in my handbag at all times. This scent melds into the fabric of my clothes in a sexy but comforting way.

I can't imagine ever being without this scent.

However, my new husband is a fan of white florals, especially jasmine, so I'm on the hunt for something that I can enjoy and that revs him up.

Narcisco is simply not a big white floral, which is why I love it. It's a deep, mysterious, ancient, precious scent for living goddesses.

I already own and love NR EDP, Idylle from Guerlain and SJP's Lovely (yep, huge fan of musky florals). I tried a couple of times the EDT version of NR but dismissed it as I found the opening too sharp (same happened with Lovely at first by the way). However a few days ago I gave it another chance and boy did I love it. It's spring coming and the scent suited so much the light-hearted mood of this beautiful season - especially when I left the store and went outside as EmyPlante mentioned earlier - that I decided to buy this version as well. Now I can see how some of the reviewers find the EDT more appealing than the EDP, both are sweet and creamy with a remarkable drydown and nowadays I tend to find the EDP a tad too sweet on me but this one is perfect. The ideal balance of sweet and spicy that remains intriguing while it lasts. Lasting power is better on me than the EDP's.

This used to be my signature scent for quite some time. I was working in a department store when it was first released, the first day it came in and smelled it I fell in love. This scent settles into your skin and has a soft musky smell that I love. It is noticeable without clashing with your own body, you actually begin to believe that you yourself is actually emanating this feminine sexy without trying scent. This is the only perfume where I actually used up the entire bottle. I thought about buying another EDP but I soon began noticing it on tons of other people and I soon began to feel like it wasn't my scent anymore. I felt like I had been cheated on and I wasn't prepared to take her back. It's silly but I'm still on the search for "the one".

Hunterblu: I think it was the EDT's limited edition: silver bottle, same shape, silver package. NR Essence and its variations are also in a silverish bottle, but its shape is different. I suggest you try to check among Google images if you can recognize the bottle just to make sure you repurchase the good one.

Tried the EDT today in de store. It really is a very special scent! It made me feel the most desireable woman. Turned me on big time! ;-) I didn't notice the citrus at first. It was all musk and some florals. In the driedown it stayed musky and it became slightly more fresh but soft... Reminds me a little of incense. Can't wait to get my own bottle of this!

Can anyone tell me if this particular fragrance was released a few years back in a silver "Limited Edition" bottle and packaging? I want to make sure that this EDT in the pink box and black bottle (musk, orange blossom, osmanthus, amber etc) is the same one I remember from a few years back in the silver L.E. bottle.

Maybe it was a pink box with a silver wrapping paper around the box? Can't quite remember but I know bottle was the same shape as the normal EDT & EDP but in silver.

Thanks for any info you can give me on trying to figure this out.

it has been said that you will love the black bottle or the pink & never really love both, well I have always loved the black bottle (edt), finding the pink bottle a little too similar to Stella. Anyway, after years and years of wearing narciso on and off, I can't seem to smell it any longer, I have friends, co-workers,even strangers telling me they love it, but I cannot smell a thing after the initial 20 minutes or so .... has this happened to anyone else, I love it so much !!!

I appreciate the complexity of this Narciso Rodriguez For Her, but the musk and wood is too much for me. I found:

Within the first five minutes:

- Lovely, powdery floral enveloping me
- Absolutely gorgeous orange blossom
- A freshness that draws me in

The perfume evolves in about ten minutes:

- Wood tones appear, smelling masculine to me
- Amber increases
- Musk grows very strong and metallic on my skin
- Orange blossom decreases

*7/10 rating for its gorgeous complexity, but personally I cannot wear this
*2/10 headache factor - this does not give me a headache

I tried this in a department store when it was first launched, and liked it, so bought a big bottle.

Its a warm, spicy, sexy scent - men seem to be drawn to its musky undertones.

Definitely one for a night out. However, it is very dense, heavy and slightly cloying. I also think its slightly masculine?

I gave away my bottle to a friend, it was just to "dark" for me to continue to wear.

I had a change of heart.

When I first smelled this more than a month ago via a sample vial, I dismissed it as ordinary because I had become so used to smelling a pure Egyptian musk attar. Add the fact that I bought Beckham Story for her almost at the same time and my initial opinion is that they are so the same. Well, they are similar---but not exactly substitutes for each other.

Feeling upset today, I decided to try it---thinking that if I feel so bad, wearing something like NR for her wouldn't be so torturous. I spritzed lavishly before I went out to have my lone dinner. All throughout the time I was out, I smelled amazing. The fragrance that surrounded me was like a warm comforting veil of rich musk and delicate florals blended in seamless harmony. It wasn't like I was wearing a fragrance at all. It felt totally like I just smelled plain divine---without any reinforcements whatsoever.

I need more of this.

It's not an easy, everyday fragrance, definitelly try it before you buy it as you may love it or hate it. I tried it at the shop, put it back on tge shelf thinking 'definitely not for me'. Then all the way back home I spend sniffing my wrists. I was intrigued, it matched my mood then, I personally call it 'my sad frangrance'. Smell like white flowers but there is something to it that smells a bit like... Sex. And I mean a bit of natural body smell. It's very feminine, not overly sweet.
I like it a lot, definitely will buy another bottle but even I don't wear it every day. I can't, I don't always feel like. It develops great on a hot skin but some may find it overpowering. My partner is not a fan. It lasts a few good hours, to start with projection is quite strong but it softens. I prefer EDT to EDP version.

This perfume is one that I tried over and over at Nordstrom's hoping to love it-- because I love musk and osmanthus. When the Osmanthus would be in bloom in California it would perfume the whole hillside and it was the coolest experience to walk up a hill in the night enveloped in a beautiful scent.
Unfortunately- Everytime I tried NR at the counter, it was harsh and soapy and awful.
Le sigh. I really wanted to love it.
Then I ordered a mini to try it and I do! love this stuff. It is a powerfully smooth and seductive floral that ooozes class and sultry beauty. It's strong and I am sure this could be overwhelming if applied with a heavy hand. It's thick.

Something strage happened in my experience with NR for her EDT. I stop smelling it on myself with whifs of air in about 20 minutes. I am ready to reapply in about 1 hour! Do you think it can really be that poor pongevity on me or I just get used to the perfume in 20 minuts? I can not beleive it has a trail at all! But I love it... Just need more info.

I am not sure why and I want to apologize in advance...this smelled like cat pee to me. Maybe the large sample I received was bad?

I had to edit my review for the EDT
I disliked it initially but after a few uses i LOVE this more than the EDP

it has more character, oomph, and lasts longer. Oh and the drydown is heavenly, though faded, the drydown smells like warm marshmallows on me, not too sweet but warm and pleasant. The musk never goes away, but gives that sexy vibe to the perfume

definitely signature worthy... but it's a bit "cold" in our country right now, not sure how this would react during the summer.. hope this also works in summer months!

've been looking for a new signature perfume and after reading your reviews I decided to try NR's For Her in both EDT and EDP

I tried on both on different wrists and they reacted differently.

EDT has a sharp initial citrus smell, the middle note on me was synthetic, plastic, strong musk. I don't sense any orange blossom at all. The dry down was your standard amber, vanilla. It also smelled a bit masculine on my chemistry.

EDP. Initial spray was soapy, clean rose scent. It was love at first sniff. I hate patchouli. I HATE patchouli. Fortunately, it was mild on this one and I can barely detect it on my skin. Middle and heart notes I can smell musk, florals, and some sweetness. It smells both sexy, sultry and sweet. Classy without trying too hard.

Sillage is average, staying power is around 8 hours.

I prefer EDP version over EDT anytime.

Popularity of this fragrance (regardless of its unusual composition and a heavy character, and perhaps exactly because of that) is easy to explain because it reflects a desire of every woman to attract and seduce, and this fragrance has openly sexual character. Unusual lustful composition is created with the sensual musk in its centre, surrounded by orange, osmanthus and amber.

I guess musk, orange blossom and the slightest hint of apricot are my thing 'cuz I love this stuff!!

Even though it smells soft and simple, it is deceivingly seductive with intricate subtle nuances weaving through it that Lovely just doesn't have or come close to.

I would say the magic hand of Mr Kurkdjan and better quality ingredients are why this one will be my next purchase where as the other was used as bathroom spray.

I would wear this any time of year and bask in the glow!

Let me start by saying that this perfume is very distinctive, so it is easy to recognize. I have smelled it many times on other women and I have enjoyed it every single time because the sillage is so beautiful.

You have to love musk, because Narciso Rodriguez for her is all about musk - sweet and feminine musk with a soft and delicate orange flower note.
There is something slighthly synthetic to this perfume, not in a bad way - more in an urban chic way. As a matter of fact it makes it quite modern that the only note I can relate to something from nature is the floral note.
It is quite linear, it only becomes a little softer when it settles. As already mentioned the sillage is absolutely amazing and you’ll be rewarded with nice wafts of the scent every time you move. Longevity is also good.

NR for her is classy, modern, elegant, feminine and sexy. It is a very versatile perfume that can be worn for formal occasions as well as romantic dates or as a clubbing scent. I can easily understand why it has become the signature scent of so many women. You simply can’t go wrong with this great perfume.

In 3 words: MUSKY – MODERN - SEXY

This scent is perfect balanced. It´s s not loud, vulgar, overpowering. It´s discret, descent, with character and personality. So Everybody notices it, without being invaded, and this is a very elegant!

I don´t picture a very sexy woman, but a sensual and intellectual one, who drives her life in a very enjoyful and successful way.

This scent exercises power with attitude and intellectual.

Extremely sensual, urban and elegant.

Perfect!

Narcisio Rodriguez EDT for her is a good perfume but not my type. It's definitively a young and feminine perfume and It smells very fruity on me. But I don't know if it's just me but I can't smell the musk. All I can smell is the fruity notes and I don't consider it as sexy. I think that it's a very young, feminine, clean, innocent perfume.

One part innocence to two parts unbridled lust, this is sex in a bottle. An amazing fragrance, (and the shower gel has staying power too). Whenever I wear Narciso's BLACK bottle...I always receive comments..such as "what are you wearing, you smell divine?" or, "you smell delicious".

This is one of my top five favourites and I always have a bottle.

My go-to scent!

Bought this one 3 years ago because my boyfriend loved it.. Now I can't live without it any more :)

For me, Narciso Rodriguez really does the trick musk-wise. Noticed on this site that 'For Her' is pretty popular, I can see why!

But (luckily?) I've never noticed coming across a fellow 'For Her-fanatic' here in Holland. My friends and sisters don't really get my love for this scent, but I don't mind - as long as me and my boyfriend agree on it!

Only downside for me is that after a few hours I can't really smell it on myself, while others do. I envy them!

Without a doubt, one of the sexiest musks ever! The lasting power, projection and sillage blows away the EDP imo and it also lacks that annoying rose note that's in the EDP which to me kinda gave off the vibe that NR was apologizing for the raw, edgy naughtieness of the EDT by putting pink lipstick on it...which was ok I guess, a little more "girly" (whatever that means) ..fine. But was it necessary? No way. That's not to say that I don't like the EDP, but I prefer creamy white florals to rose. No more than two sprays are needed, any more than that will overwhelm those around you. When used with a light hand, For Her EDT can seduce anyone she desires without any makeup on (because really, she doesn't need any), barefoot, in her torn jeans & mc jacket with nothing underneath. And, she makes no apologies. RAWR!

This is certainly modern, and makes me smile. I think of a well dressed women, who starts the evening making herself up with nice makeup, maybe from the Clinique counter. She washes her hair with fancy shampoo and wears expensive leather boots. Fall is over, winter is coming, and by midnight it is cold out, but the air is crisp and cleansing, she is only wearing a thin jacket. However the night is so invigorating that the heat of her skin keeps her warm. This woman will be out in the city until after the bars close, seeing her friends first but perhaps meeting a man, walking home at 4 am, her skin is musky, her hair catches the scent of steely cold and smoke and frozen bare trees, her dress smells like her.

The first time I tested this was on a strip. It placed it on my dresser and went to bed a few hours later. I woke up in the middle of the night and had to move the strip--it was suffocating the whole room and waking me up. That is projection!!

This perfume has many positive revisions that I have high expectations for him. Big disappointment for me! On my skin this is just musk, very very very musky and nothing more. The durability is excellent, and also the silage. I like musk in perfumes, but when he will star in the composition do not like because it gives me a feel "dirty". Not for me.

Rumour on the block is that there's going to be a completely new fragrance addition to the Narciso Rodriguez collection in the new year. I can't wait! It's supposed to be phenomenal and different (It's not a flanker to "For Her" or "Essence" apparently, but we'll see).

I am a musk lover and this doesn't do it for me. On my skin, this smells very much like humid flowers and a light, waxy and balmy musk. It's way too clean and fresh. It's a conservative version of a dirty musk. I like dirty so goodbye goody two shoes Narciso Rodriquez for Women.

If this is the Narciso Rodriguez for Her (there seem to be so many verions lately) that is supposed to be somewhat reminiscent of the smell of not-so-fresh skin, I had a store sample of it when it first came out. It's not my kind of fragrance, but men seem to like it.

I think the white musk-white floral combo is giving me a honeysuckle-soliflore accord that I'm not really into. The musk is too clean and too innocent for my taste, like laundry detergent. I wanted to like it, but alas.

I absolutely adore this fragrance and have already nearly finished my second bottle which is extremely rare for this perfume collector! I honestly believe this is the best musk fragrance I have found.
The musk note is of course most prominent but it is certainly not what I would call a 'clean' fragrance as the floral components keep this much more interesting.
It is overall a beautiful and feminine scent that is warm and sweet and so ever sexy in my opinion.
Longevity and sillage is amazing - even though I lose smelling it on myself after a couple of hours, others can still notice and I often receive compliments from work colleagues and friends. Unfortunately it seems only my SO can't seem to smell it at all :(
Through my first bottle of this elixir I wore nothing else and so I think that goes to show how versatile this scent can be - perfect for everyday wear out and about or at work and still great for a night out when you want to play the femme fatale!
I have also tested the EDP version but that does not work as well with my chemistry.
Definitely a favourite (and could be signature worthy) - highly recommend!

I had it for quite some time (until I dropped it on the floor and broke the bottle.. my whole apartment was smelling like it for a month) and I must say it is not of my favourite scents. It is rather heavy, too musky and I did not catch any floral tints at all.
It is definitely not for 30- women.

Beautiful.

I discovered this scent the other day in a duty free shop at the airport. My husband, who thinks I'm a perfume freak and is never really bothered about my fragrances, complimented this one straight away! Whenever I ask for his opinion on a scent of mine, it's always "yeah alright" or "don't like it", but he really did love this one from the first spray! And so did I, in fact I treated myself to a 50ml bottle as it was really cheap!

Once we landed in Paris and got to our hotel, I used it for the first time before going out and may I just say, it's even MORE beautiful once you hit the fresh air! It enhances the beauty and the feminity of the fragrance. You can just pick up the musky, rosey, earthy notes. My husband kept saying he could smell me and really appreciated the scent, I was amazed at how much he liked it and kept saying it!

I've been wearing this fragrance everyday throughout our stay, and it reminds me of Paris now! The lasting power is great and it stays even longer on clothes. Definitely one of my favorites now!

I was buying a perfume, and I received a sample of this. Yesterday, I put it to sleep, and I cold stop smelling my wrist.

This scent is wonderful!!!! it´s elegant, due to this musky-earthy duo and at the same time very sensual. I would say more sensual than sexy properly.

For Her edt together with Bottega Veneta were my great findings in the last year. Both are quite similar (musky-earthy), but Bottega is louder, more vintage. For her is more urban and modern.

Today, I bought a bottle of that and I received a sample from the edp, which is more floral, but equally lovely.

This became one of my top favorites for sure. I will buy it again and again.

Highly recommended!

hmmm..this fragrance is not everyone's favourite because It is complicated,rich,unique and sharp. I smell lots of dark flowers....mysterious,characteristic and origınal.this is not a fragrance of girly girl's or lady likes because of it's dark side

It was love at first... sight. Somehow, when I saw the minimalistic bottle and the gorgeous promotional poster (which I think suits the fragrance perfectly: it's delicate, alluring and dark at the same time) I knew I'd love the perfume. I got a sample as soon as I could and indeed, I fell in love.

It's soft and seductive, innocent and tempting. Womanly, sensual without being vulgar. Musky, adorned with sweet flowers. Powdery.

Like jeca wrote, it's a reinterpretation of something old. Something you'd smell on your grandmother or great grandmother when she was young, but with a modern touch. It's not an old-fashioned perfume, but somewhat nostalgic.

It lasts for hours, clinging close - but not very close - to the skin.

I don't usually opt for musky scents, but this one is absolutely STUNNING! It also blends into my skin really well, leaving behind a sumptuous hint of vanilla & orange musk. I can definitely imagine this perfume on a gorgeous, mysterious femme fatale!

Beautiful fragrance. So soft, sheer and powdery its distinctful lingering feminine smell is enchanting. I compared elie Saab and narciso. They do have a similar feminine touch to them however I don't believe they are the same to my nose. Elie has much more of a kick from spray to the middle notes it comes across a little spicy. Narciso has more a smooth powdery elegance. It can sit differently on skin, each to their own.

I'm crazy over it. Seriously, head over heals!

It's so so so original and different. I personally can't find anything to compare it to. It's like a luxurious bouquet of exquisite flowers, pink, white, yellow...with lots of green. It's kinda powdery and kinda flowery, but it also has this refreshing note. It's so addictive!

Very long lasting and gets you compliments. What else could you ask for :)

I was in Geneva airport recently & this was one of the many perfumes I tried. To me, its similar in nature to Inner Grace by Philosophy (without the initial alcohol note), just a little sweeter & more feminine. I have sniffed from the bottle before but never felt inclined to spray on my skin - I`m so glad I did, it is a warm, sexy, egyptian musk - I have a small vial of Egyptian musk oil & this is a more complex version of the scent. I will probably buy this very very soon, mmmmmmm :)
I may add that I imagine a light hand could be needed here - too liberally sprayed & the self assured sensuality could be too over the top & brash!

This was a blind buy, and I have to thank Fragrantica because it is because of you guys that I bought this perfume. At first It smelt just ok to me, nothing special but then i wore it, and during the day the smell kept coming back to me and I fell in love, Now it is one of my favorites, I highly recommend this, you can't go wrong in my opinion. It lasts so very long. I am not an expert at describing scents in terms of notes all I can say is it is classy and complicated, a classic in the true sense of the word, timeless.

Update: I bought a back up bottle. This is iconic scent for me.

I agree this is a sensual scent. Definitely.
I really don't think this one and the EDP is similar. The similar just the musk, the musk, and.....the musk ! :D
It has the touch of bergamot, so the freshness and sexy in a bottle feel so...close to PERFECT!
I love itttt!!!

I love this fragrance. I'm a huge fan of NR's perfumes. I have For Him EDT and EDP too, so I decided to sniff the For Her range too. It is unique, sexy, sophisticated, edgy. It is HIGH FASHION. The problem with this (for me) besides it is quite pricey, it has no staying power on me at all. Maybe because of the musk, probably I'm anosmic to musk. I really want to own a bottle of this stuff but it seems it doesn't worth it. The bottle is also good, the best bottle design I've seen so far.

This is one of my favorites. Every time I put this on I feel feminine and sexy. I would describe it as sophisticated, modern and sensual all at the same time. The florals, woodsy notes and Egyptian Musk are perfectly blended in this scent. I can wear this scent all year around and it's never overpowering. I definitely prefer the EDT version but wouldn't mind owning the EDP also. For the price of this I wish it did last longer. I do have to reapply during the day but I remind myself it is an EDT. Overall, I adore this scent and will definitely be repurchasing once my current bottle is gone (which I don't say very often).

I can’t help myself from keep sniffing my wrist once I put on just a spray of it..it smells really good on my skin,seriously.i feel like wanna eat it..haha..i’m not a good perfume reviewer.but I wanna give my sincere comment about this perfume.

As for the first spray,i smell citrusy-like scent..orange,maybe?i think it must be belongs to the orange family.until I know it’s actually the bergamot after I’ve read the infos here in fragrantica.com.but in my opinion,bergamot normally smells quite overpowering or harsh.but narciso really have the talent n brain on how to minimize and slows down the overpowering-ness of bergamot.and that’s amazing.then,comes the flowery scents which I don’t know which flower it has..until I know it’s actually the osmanthus.

That was the first note of it.later on the drydown,it’s becoming soft n sweet,ambery,warm,powdery,sexy,feminine,smells a bit mysterious and absolutely gorgeous!IN CONCLUSION,IT’S A FEMME FATALE FRAGRANCE!the woody scents are there especially the musk,but the most dominant to my nose is vanilla.i don’t know,I can smell a little bit of candy…cotton candy perhaps?or just typical candy bar?somehow in a moderately/minimumly added..what makes the warmth of this perfume is of course,the amber…

I asked for my sister's opinion on how do i smell when i put on this perfume.she said,the smells is nice on me but somehow,i smell just like my father.
and in conjunction,i couldn't agree more with a blogger named MEG.she is the writer of lip so facto blog.she said this perfume has slightly masculine muskiness and that is so true.because my sister did say i smell like my father.lol

just for 2-3 spritzes of this perfume is enough for me..because I don’t wanna get my self kinda like “stuffy” and when people passed me by,they’ll be like fainting because of the heaviness of this perfume…(if it is sprayed for many times)..just spray it lightly for 2-3 times…so that the goodness n the richness of this perfume will come out and the fragrance becomes an airy-like n smells beautifully.

sexy, sensual , but at the same time ..fresh somehow and "clean" scent. i was surprised how it changes after some time. it's perfect when it stays on skin for a while, "calms down" a bit. i loved how it reminds of some old leather clothes..
when i tried them on for a first time, some of it splashed on my leather bracelet..it was about 3 weeks ago. and it still "sits" there.
waiting for my bottle of EDT to arrive :} mmm..

I ADORE the edt..for me it's a mystic and very hunting scent. On me, the orange blossom is very dominate as well as the musc. I adore the simple but chic bottle, it's very stylish. I just bought it again, but this time, it came in a wonderful pink bag , very designer'ish and so adorable. It contains 50 ml edt and 15 ml shower gel and 15 ml body lotion. I love the bodycare products from this scent. At days it's enough to use the bodycare, as the scent itself can be pretty strong. I think it's pretty much like Chanel scents. Sometimes it's more than enough to use the bodycare. The edt's are imo very strong. So go lightly with the spray :) The funny thing is that there is a difference form this edt to the edp. I don't really care for the edp. On my it is too sharp and strong and I had to give it away. The edt is just my style. I have use it for years. I always have it in my collection. I don't use it everyday, but when I use it, I keep smiling and remember, why I love it so much :)

This is one of my favourites. First a bit too sharp for my taste, but it mellows out to a very soft smell. On me i get mostly orange blossom and musk. Stays on forever, i can still smell it after a good shower. Love <3

EDIT: This stuff is really amazing. It's becoming my signature. The more i wear it, the more i love it. Longevity is spectacular too. 24 hours, and a shower later, i still get a wiff of it. And that's with one spray in the neck! Sometimes during the day, i feel that okay, i can't smell it anymore. Next minute i get a wonderful wiff of it again.
I usually wear perfume discreetly, only one, max 2 sprays. So i don't get a lot of compliments on my perfume, because they wear so close.
I was wearing NR the other day at work, and a really cute guy came in. When we talked, he goes "wow you smell amazing!" He caught me off guard there, and i'm like "thank you, you look amazing". Then i'm like uh, did i just say that out loud :P ??
(I have to say though, that i had tried Tom Ford White Patchouli on the night before. I really REALLY don't like WP, but if that was a part of the compliment, gotta give it some credit too... Because i think i still smelled WP, after a shower, and after putting on NR. So maybe it was a mix of those 2.)
Anyways, some days i feel a bit anosmic when wearing NR, i can't smell it myself. I've read others saying the same thing, and it's probably the musk playing a trick there. That makes me sad, but luckily it doesn't happen that often.
2 thumbs (and 10 toes) up for this EdT :)

I adore it since it came out, absolutely fantastic fragrance!!!... and the one I have incredible chemistry with. It's one of these musky mysterious sexy scents that shouldn't be overdosed, but once it's used with light hand, it is usually true winner.

Day and night, doesn't matter. people stop to ask what I'm wearing because I guess as the first Rodriguez parfume it was not advertised much. As it is so woody and primal it really feels like second skin. I was surprised to see I have the same favourites with many - as both For Her and Michael are my favourite scents - beautiful odes for female sensuality...

Btw, I have had EdT which I loved, but if forced to choose, I still prefer EdP... A little tip for these who find the fragrance overpowering even as EdT, try it as hair mist that is genius way of wearing this beauty. Or check out For Her Iridescent, that is almost as unforgettable.

I have to say, NR For Her starts off very pleasantly. On first spray, I'm always wondering why I don't get a bottle; the orange blossom and amber are beautiful, and the Egyptian musk gives it a fantastic sharpness. But as it goes on, it wears more and more unpleasantly on me until all I can smell is sharp musk with a hint of something floral. I know a lot of people like it, but after a few hours, it wanders into headache territory for me. And this is the kind of perfume that stays and stays and stays until you take a shower.

This is my fav perfume of all my collection!! i am on my third bottle. This perfume smells expensive and has brilliant longevity it forever changes on my skin and leaves the most gorgeous smell that clings tilthe next day. I never get sick of this scent as it always smells soo mysterious and sultry but is beautiful from the moment i spray it on til it fades. This perfume reminds me of sundrenched skin on balmy holiday nights if that makes sense!! just beautiful!

I read in the September 2011 issue of "InStyle" magazine's column "Beauty Talk -Salma Hayek Pinault" had been in love with this fragrance & wearing it since just before it came out. It seems Narsico gave her some of it just before it was launched to the public. I don't know...but with her sultry beauty, she seems to match well with this one since it does have that very sensual quality to it. I don't know about the EDP version, but the EDT is nice, IMO. A winter, date night fragrance, I think. A sweet, delicious musk!

This perfume is beautiful! There is something about it that exudes your skin but better 200x! I love it! It opens up in a very inviting way, never shocking, and dries down just as nicely. This might not be the most "striking" of perfumes it's subtlety definitely leaves a lasting impression. A must have for anyone's perfume collection, I reach out for this one mostly spring and autumn as it can be heavy during the summer.

Now my long secret crush on Narciso is real, thee i have in my list of most wanted. How could I have missed out on this very sophisticated fragrance ?, . It took me a while to bring this one home, every time I went to the perfumery I made sure I came back home with the tester paper and all the while as the scent grew over the days, I knew she was meant to be mine but all the while I wanted to be absolutely sure she was coming home with no regrets. This perfume is for the lady who loves feeling different, sophisticated, yet purely mystique.Welcome home Narciso Roderiguez for her....my recent hobby in perfume testing just paid and I may have just discovered my signature fragrance.....
So am back again to add sugar to this new member of my perfume family, I must say I prefer the EDT more than the EDparfum version....I have no regrets for my purchase, I looooovvvvvvvve it !

As for the EGYPTIAN MUSK I don't think there is anything else which beats NR for Her but a pure quality attar.
To my nose this is also a distinctive smell of CYCLAMEN though such flower obviously it does not contain. But I swear, it really smells like the wild real stuff which grows on mountains and plains and I am familiar with that smell since my childhood.
The first time I smelt this fragrance was the end of my quest for a perfect fragrance. I was younger and really into MUSK then. I remember sayin "now, that is ME!". Though since years I'm really into oriental and spicy stuff, the pure perfume version of NR for Her is still on my wishlist.

LaPetite, don't let yourself become so frustrated about not getting the "hype" behind the fragrance. I promise you that even the "seasoned perfumers" experience the same thing - smelling a fragrance and thinking, "wait, what the heck is everybody so excited about?" I'm a HUGE perfume person, and can appreciate almost all scents, even if there's not my personal taste, BUT for me, Lancome Tresor is GROSS, and I have NO CLUE why everyone loves it so much! I literally gagged upon smelling it for the first time, and still unconsciously make a face when I think about the smell of it, so don't worry, you're not alone!!

As for the perfume, I'm personally more a fan of the original in the black bottle/pink box. This is one of my signature's, and it blends so well with my body chemistry. I like that it's aggressive, makes no apologies, and OOZES sex. The musk being central in the fragrance makes it very primal to me, and I get SO many compliments, from both men and women alike, whenever I wear this. I am a fan of the pink bottle too, the EDP, but it's a bit more delicate, softer, and the thing I covet about the original is it's LACK of softness. I'd wear this on a first date with a little black dress and killer pair of heels - he'll swoon!

I was gifted this perfume over a year ago and for an entire year the perfume remained untouched. The strong scent at the beginning turned me off of the scent entirely. I just spritzed it now and let it dry for an hour or so and it now smells exactly like honey with a hint of orange blossom and jasmine. It is a very sultry and sexy scent that really blends into your skin and becomes a part of you. I think I like it but it will take some getting used to. I can't wait to try it out in public and see what people think!

This is a nice scent , really , but once more i don't get the hype with this scent as for the other so popular ones :-( . It's nicely done, quite complex, but not genious either .
For once i like a musky frag , probably because it is not "in your face" (well it is an EDT , most of the time they're fainter than EDP ) , it has a lot of flowers , and a little peppery , maybe spicy note , pretty . I don't get the supposed absolute sexiness or the private parts aspect :-/
I'm not doing this on purpose , I hate not to understand the popularity of a scent , this is SO frustrating ! I'm not disliking it , it's nice , but i wouldn't buy it .
MAYBE , as for "La Lune" D&G , it's just the musk that doesn't like me ...

absolutely love this frag, had been wearing for years and years but i think i can move away from it now finally, even though it smells divine and different, seems to capture my personality so well, very youthful but maturing, just got a little tired of paying so much to have to apply more than once, so that gave me a chance to explore the fragrance world a little more, the edp is even more costly and i love it, back and forth bwt the 2 for ever, now i can say i have not worn it for a year or so and it is sitting on my dresser with a gamit of others, but I'm glad i got a chance to widen my horizons and see what notes really make me feel divine, this was (maybe still is) that one, but someone has to be in your face to get a whiff, and i'm the kind of person even when it's powdery like this one i like it to almost scream (on note though)to the world around me because i enjoy others being blessed by any frag that i may have on that day. oh i've also tried lovely, but even for the price it smells like the price, it's not as rich smelling as NR. Just not the same, remember this was all i wore from 2004, tried sooo many,even the vintage one like ah ysatis and fracas but nothing seemed to have that allure, not even chanel's allure,i have been wearing gucci's flora eau fraiche and edp, those work well and last good for me and have that floral feminine flair also Tocca stella, because NR is an old friend i may wear it to bed tonight so my hubby can reminese

I tried this today, and it smells like boiled gabbage mixed with dirt. No perfume has ever smelled this bad on me. Literally made me nauseous, so I had to rush to wash it off, and still the smell lingers. Eugh!

I had tried NR once earlier, and that time it smelled really good. I don't understand why it smelled so bad now. Weird.

EDIT: I have come to the conclusion that it must be THE MUSK that disagrees with me in this scent. This is based on detecting the same (to me, unfortunately) dirt-like smell in other scents containing a strong musk note.

I thought I'd love it based on all the reviews I've read, so I went to Nordstrom and tested both EDP and EDT. I am puzzled. I don't get the flowers or the sexiness. This smells like the old Chanel perfumes - heavy and suffocating. I was so excited going there and came out very disappointed.

This is an incredibly warm fragrance.
It opens with a sharp but warm blast of organge flower with a little touch of bergamot. Later the musc and vanilla come in and wrap themself around the orange blossom in a warm, loving embrace.
It is soooooo sensual.
I like sensual fragrances, but I also like a slightly cuddly feeling to go with the sensuality. Narciso Rodriguez does not have that cuddly thing. This fragrance is simply too beautiful, too hot, too sensual.
I might wear it as a "bedroom scent" from time to time, but I'm too shy to wear this glorious gem in public.
I picture this on a real femme fatale. The woman every one wants, girls and boys.

I think I'll grow into this scent. Literally. This is IMO a fragrance for a woman in het late twinties, early thirties (and older of course). I just think this is the kind of fragrance that requires a little bit of experience in life.
But that does not stop this young woman from loving it :)

Review for the EDT

No, I don't like this perfume.
The opening is very sharp, a citrus sensation that offends your sensitive nostrils, especially if you don't like oranges that much.
But soon comes from the deep the fragrance's leitmotif: an indefinible sugary exhalation - I guess it comes from musk, vanilla and amber toghether - that changes the infusion into a weird orange blossom honey.
If I could rename the parfume, the name would be "orange blossom honey", of course.
Tooooooo sweet!(And good longevity, for those of you who are interested in extreme sweetness...but I am not!!)
I like most citrus honey in my herb tea than on my skin, and that's all.

PS: Nothing in common with Idylle EDP (Guerlain), which I own, Idylle it's all about flowers, while For Her is fruity-sugary-musk.
I see quite a similarity between the opening of For HER and Cinema EDT (YSL), but, again, Cinema has lot of sensations around the clementine, as For Her is absolute vodka orange.

It's definitely unique, not like any other musk fragrance. A well blended musky floral. I like it, but only when applied very subtly! I think this really should be used as a skin scent, than it's soft, feminine and intriguing(although too musky and clean smelling to be sexy in my opinion). If it's overdone (which it is easily), it's very unpleasant, musk thrown in your face like a fluffy pillow. Breathtaking, but not in a good way.

This perfume is amazing!I wish though I could smell it on someone else. I bought it because I read a lot of fantastic reviews on it. You know when you smell a perfume on someone else you really get to smell what it's like???any who...I put some on my hubby thinking I would be able to smell it. Men can so get away w/ wearing this ladies. Anyway he went to work & I asked him if he got any compliments on it. He said no. I don't think I put enough on him.lol. Anyway I love Egyptian goddess which is a oil,it's amazing. So all & all this is lovely. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

This is sex in the bottle!

Men go crazy, women ask what I'm wearing. Makes me feel like the "Femme fatale".

It's woodsy, musky and seducing fragrance. It's expensive in my country (so you won't be feeling it on every woman in the street), but really worth this money.
I recommend absolutely. I enjoy every time when I wear it.
Love it!

One more thing- it's strong ( even the EdT), so don't use a lot.

I can’t really do a review of NR:EdT without mentioning how crazy popular this thing is, and it makes a certain amount of sense. NR:EdT is a syrupy orange blossom accord overlaid on a super!musk base. Animalic sexiness married to syrupy sweet – no wonder this thing's a winner! It’s a very pretty fragrance. I’d even go so far as to say it’s an honestly good fragrance: uncomplicated, linear and loud, but generally good.

As for me, we all know how I am with sweetness; Sweeties and I have complicated relationship. NR:EdT falls squarely in the category of “super popular fragrances everyone says smells fabulous on me, but to which I am mainly indifferent.” It is tragic, my friends. I need more stonking Orientals in my life.

This review is for the EDT, black bottle/pink box...

I have to be honest about this one, I like it but some days I'm not able to smell it!

On a good day, it smells fleshy, lightly floral and it wears close to the skin...On me the orange blossom and the Egyptian musk blend amazingly well. The star of the show here is the Egyptian Musk, it is this note that makes the wearer feel naked...yes, there is this nudity and fleshiness in NR, that's what makes it so different and that's what all the fuss is about...This fleshy aspect is subtle, and it feels natural, so natural that the wearer may think for a moment: ¨Is that it?¨ Yes, its that simple...Nudity is simple, but is so damn sexy, right? Well, its the same with NR...

I´m always very honest with my reviews, and I have to say that there are bad days when I become totally anosmic to NR...This is discouraging to me, 'cause I'm really selfconscious when it comes to projection/sillage...However, I´ve noticed that others do smell me, even when I don´t smell myself.

This one is really nice and even addictive. As for the smell, I consider it one of the best out there. Unfortunately, sillage and lasting power are poor, even in the EdP. Because it is not cheap, it becomes too expensive. It is a pity though, because I love the smell.

Ah...such a rich feminine and sexy perfume! Narciso Rodriguez is a sweet yet feminine fregrance as the musk and the citruses create a very fascinating and adventurous scent.This is definitely the perfume that i've gotten most compliments out of.In my opinion it can be worn all year round day and night but whenever I'm going out and I need a boost of confidence Narciso Rodriguez is my best bet!

I had the EDP version one. I fell in love at the first sniff. I find it more floral than musk. I think that the Pyramid lacks of a component that i smell very clearly: pulp of peach ( see osmoz). I find it very solar. A lot of people ask me which kind of fragrance i wear : i receive a lot of compliments. This perfume remembers me a bit Romance of Ralph Lauren now discontinued. I want to try Lovely to test similarity.

I have EDP and it's one of my all-time favorites. It's the sexiest, richest, most gorgeous Egyptian musk ever, and I adore the orange blossom top-notes. Strangely, I don't think this smells much like SJP Lovely. I can detect the classic Egyptian Musk in the undertones of both, but, on me Lovely is boozy, syruppy, and has intensive lavender. NR smells like molten gold to me. It's a truly hypnotic, and deeply sexual scent.

For animal-lovers concerned about how the musk is obtained (I'm an animal-lover as well, so I looked into this): In 1979 CITES declared the musk deer (Moschus moschiferus L)a protected species, and since then natural musk is not used in perfumery (unless its used illegally via poachers). The first synthetic musks (nitromusks) were synthesized by Bauer in 1888, and they have been modified, expanded upon, and used in perfumery ever since. Narciso For Her is a brilliant, synthetic blend, using fragrances of Linalool,Hydroxycitronellal, Butylphenyl Methylpropional,Hexyl Cinnamal, Benzyl Benzoate, Limonene, Farnesol, Geraniol, etc. etc. No guilt with this one; just enjoy the voluptuous beauty.

Ah, now this frag is love! Just sampled the EDP version at Myer and I was completely smitten. I tried the scent at 3pm and it's already 9pm now and I can still smell it on my wrists and blouse. I love that it has a really long staying power. And smells very sexy too!

A caveat, though: this is not a scent for everyone. It can be overpowering to some and a friend once commented it could smell like a man's perfume. Kind of reminds me of Stella McCartney In Two, smells very feminine with the peonies but dries down to patchouli, amber and musk which can be offensive to other people's olfactory senses.

But may I remind you that this is a grown up scent. I am glad that it works for me. At the moment my perfume cupboard is stocked with light, girlish scents that are just too teenage-girly. And safe, if you may. This one is for a confident and empowered career woman. I thought it's about time for my scent to evolve, so i'm committing to a full bottle pretty soon.

I found out that there's a very similar perfume in Spain and it's more affordable. It's called Cyprum, by Hortensia H and you can find it in Mercadona. It's about 15€ 100ml so, it's very worth it ;)

I have never smelled the original perfume of this. I have an imitation oil of this. Mine is vegan,non animal musk. I don't know if this is the case with the original one.

This is an aura creating masterpiece.It is very special to me. There is a cool breezy orange blossom bouquet. There is warm,inviting musk,crisp bergamot with tinges of tangy beauty. this smells like a twin to my skin,just always there,many hours giving me sensual smiles.

I adore this scent. Mine has got to be the EDT imitation,because there are no roses or patchouli.

So happy I bought the edp this time instead of the edt, it is so beautiful and it's not very strong but it does last a long time. This is a must have fragrance! MMMMM this is so sensual and I really am more for the edp than the edt and I used to be a fan of the edt but I found it got boring to me after a while , the edp perfume is more alluring to me now.

If you didn't like the EDT, try the EDP - they fixed everything I didn't like about the EDT (too much smokiness, too much orange blossom, too masculine) and made a swoon-worthy, feminine but not too sweet, sex-in-a-bottle scent. I don't like anything too floral or too strong and I love this! In fact, there are very few scents I like. For reference, my work scent is Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh (because I need something very light, inoffensive and fresh), this gem I reserve for free time because it is stronger, but it does smolder down to a more of a skin scent. I also love the sleek blush pink bottle it comes in, and it really suits the scent.

I used to have the EDT and I wore it a lot. It was a difficult relationship but a long one(you can find my older review below).

Now I have the EDP and I find it slightly disappointing. Fist of all, it's not as strong as the EDT and it mostly stays close to the skin.

Also, it develops in a slightly weird way. It starts quite similar to EDT, but several hours after application I can smell something alien to the composition. I guess it has more musk than the EDT hence the note slightly resembling of BO (I do use a deodorant, I assure you!). There's also a hint of cigarette smoke O_o My bf even asked me if I have been smoking or hanging out with smokers the evening when I was wearing it (which I haven't).

The whole thing smells like the morning after: spent the night in a bar smoking, drinking and wearing NR EDT. Well, I used to do all that... but I don't anymore! So it's kind of funny smelling the whole combo after an innocent morning at home and a boring day in the office :)

UPD. I got rid of the edp and opted for the black bottle - it suits me better

This is my second blind-buy!(the pink bottle) Thank God I don't regret it at all !! High quality florals from the top to base. Lasting fragrance from start to 5hrs on my skin (I live in town crossed by the equator) so you can imagine how hot in here in 01.00 pm when I sprayed. It is absolutely feminine scent, the most important thing is I can enjoy myself for this floral even thought I rarely interested in full-floral scent.. I thought feminine florals is just not me. I am just lucky with this... ;)
Some perfumes that works on somebody doesn't mean it they are good on you, better try by yourself.

Additional note (Dec 11 2011)
This perfume is getting beautiful, sexier, even comfortable... I was thinking it too musky, but now I know how to treat this one. I'm so in love with it

Well, I did it. I went out and bought the pink bottle(EDP). I just had to have it since I also own the black one (EDT). Let me tell you,I LOVE IT! The pink bottle has a longer lasting sillage and smells more floral than the black bottle. The black bottle which I also adore, has a sweeter finish and the musk is more pronounced. Both bottles smell beautiful and are nothing short of amazing. Both can be worn anywhere at anytime.

I compared it to Cleopatra by Tocca and Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker. Cleo, in my opinion, has a green apple finish to it. Nice but, not as versatile as For Her. Lovely, just did not have enough body to it.While still wearable, it lacked sophistication.

For Her, is the best!!!

I have the eau de toilette (black bottle). My husband bought this for me because he said that it smelled very different from all my other perfumes. I have to agree with him. It is not the common, loud, sweet, fruity fragrance that many people seem to be wearing. This is not the scent you wear for others, this is the scent you wear for yourself.It stays close to your skin because its a personal scent. To me,it has calming and relaxing feeling to it. The kind of scent for those days when I'm feeling like I'm having a positively good day and that day is just all about ME.

I can understand how someone would say that it may be too strong or think it's just an odd aroma when they first get a whiff of it. The secret to understanding this fragrance, is time. With patience, the musc notes develop into a very soft, sweet, beautiful,sexy scent . It's a very warm, dark and seductive perfume so, beware, the opposite sex will notice you.

I wanted to like this. The reviews sound divine. I was even watching a YouTube video where the guy said, "this is what angels smell like." so, at that moment, I trotted down to my newest store and sampled it on my skin. One of these days I'm going to learn to stop doing this lol.

It seemed harmless so I sprayed it on skin. I hope this isn't offensive to the wearers, but there's no politically correct way for me to articulate how this smells on my skin. Maybe I'm not familiar with Egyptian Musk, but this smells like strong, fishy vaginal secretions (not the good kind) and Suave deodorant. For some reason, I think this Egyptian Musk stuff is probably what attracts the fellas to this.

I could deal if it was the suave scent alone, but that other 'note' killed me. It eventually blends in and isn't the screaming show stopper after an hour, but I can't stand it because it still reigns supreme in the background. Even after scrubbing with alcohol and washing with hot water and soap, this perfumes lasts, so I think it's good to say the lasting power is there.

It clings pretty close to the skin, not big sillage in my experience. But I could see the lasting power giving me HOURS.

I think on the right woman, it could be beautiful. Just not on me.

I have the black bottle pink box, and I have to say, I think I made a mistake I think this is better suited for a man. IT does have a softness that makes it wearable for women, but i'd rather smell this on my boyfriend than on myself. Shame, barely used..also have a few body lotions and shower gel, lol

So I suppose I'll either get around to using it or give it away. I will say it's very seductive and is growing on me, I still think the more floral version of this would be far better for women , that being the pink bottle

The egyptian musk is gorgeous, and men do seem to like this .. the few times I wore it I did recieve loads of compliments ....so who knows

I have no words to describe how much I appreciate and love this perfume.
I have great appreciation for the artist ("nose") who managed to concoct, spice, mix and create this wonderful creation.
Narciso Rodriguez's scent is a complex, fascinating and blends beautifully with my body chemistry.
In my opinion, eau de perfume is excellent, while eau de toilette much much less.

This is incredibly adorable heavenly perfume (the edp version)! I just fell in love, which is not quite often.
I just can't wait to try the edt also.
Mellyhelly said it: "graceful, feminine and expensive your-skin-but-better with some floral notes.."
I also can detect a little smoke. But not much, just like someone has smoked one cigarette, and then passed trough this incredible aroma cloud. Anybody else smell smoke?
Very very lovely - I think I found my signature scent :)
I just wonder is it good for the winter? Or its scent blooms better in warmer days?

Strange how perfume perception may change in time.
My perception changes from on minute to another, so I may be a desperate rare case for perfumes!
I used to love Narciso Rodriguez EdT (black bottle), I still think it's a great modern musky scent with lovely orange blossom, but I feel toward NR as I feel towards many other fragrances on the genre that came out later: synthetical?
Of course, it is! We cannot be so naif to believe that they give us the real stuff! They sell synthetical stuff for big money!
So now, in this fake synthetic plastic world of 21th century where perfumes don't escape the hard rule, I think it is time to stop moaning about the old times gone when Samsara was real Samsara, Dolce Vita was real Dolce Vita, Femme was real Femme and so on...
Let's try to do what we can with what we have.
This is how I feel about these modern "chypre" or woody amber floral of our time.
Among the triad of NR EdT= SJP Lovely= Guerlain (omg!) Idylle that many claim to be "the same thing" I happen to like and wear Idylle at the moment.
That's because these 3 perfumes are NOT the same!
They all share the musky vibe and in spite of being synthetic white musk, at least they manage to do it with some grace. Urban grace, metropolitan grace, asphalt grace, McDonald's grace... well any grace! I mean anything that can smell graceful, feminine and expensive your-skin-but-better with some floral notes in a world of stink.
I stay well far from all the TBS The White Musk and all imitations since that infamous day they put it on market. Years of nervous system aggression via nostrils! Anywhere, anytime, always white musk from any brand in perfumes, fabric softener and even room spray (one that the lady in charge for building cleanup spritz wildly in the elevator :-O.
Oh, and I stay far from atrocious (for me, personal opinion here) Coco Mademoiselle and its own white musks.

So what can be found in NR, Lovely and Idylle?
Some musk relief!

They all belong to the musk family and they actually are relatives of the above mentioned, but they smell to me like the sophisticated cousins compared to the crap ones.

This is an olfactive family that I enjoy wearing and can sport around easily as they all seem quite versatile.
You can go to the office, go shopping, have a casual promenade with a friend, going out to a formal dinner, going out with your boyfriend, even a classical music concert, maybe...
NR both EdT and EdP (but I like only EdT) are scents of our time.
I reach for my black bottle of NR EdT when I want to smell a lush of my fave orange blossom mingled with amber, tiny honey, soft vetiver and...musk? Did I mention musk?

I've now tried all formulations and I adore both the EDT and EDP, as well the Body Mist. The EDP in the pink bottle has a pronounced floral note (orange blossom and osmanthus) with a very musky base, whereas the EDT in the black bottle is simply very musky and deeper with a very light orange blossom vibe. The Body Mist falls between the two but has poor longevity and sillage (nice for layering though).

On my skin, the EDP has better longevity and sillage than the EDT. I also really like the floral vibe. However, the EDT is the one that men go nuts over.

All versions are very sexy and musky.

I find this one to have the same "effect" as Nude by Stella McCartney. Not all of you may agree, but I find them to be both very sexy scents that mix well with your own body scent without over-empowering or being too strong. To describe them in few words this is what comes to mind: sexy, feminine, cozy, musky and light

One of the very few interesting compositions of the last decade among the designer's range. NR for Her is a tremendously radiant concoction of woods and flowers (mainly orange blossoms) laying on a masculine musky base. Its main appeal lies in its incredible distinctiveness made of an unmannered beauty and charme. Elegant but not affected, NR for Her takes immediately the distance from nowadays clean fragrances by introducing a bold ambery/musky base that continuely winks at many classic compositions from the past. At the same time its perfect balance and refinement make of NR For Her a very versatile fragrance that's perfect for both younger crowds as well as for mature wearers. Very good.

Let someone who's not into perfume smell this, and if he/she likes it you just discovered a new potential perfumista. A contemporary classic.

Rating: 8.5/10

If NR For Her does not last long on you : try Guerlain Idylle, its very long lastingg, good sillage.

After the tester in '04 it was on. This has been my #1 favorite since then, every few months i buy. The EDP i bought maybe 2-3 times though b/c the scent is amazing, but doesn't last long on my skin, but the EDT is the perfect combo for me and lasts a much longer on my skin, the lotion hmm ok but i don't really need it. So satisfied when I get a new bottle because I think I'm going to get another fragrance and always go back to this one, it's really hard after this one to get another favorite. I've tried so many SJP's lovely (NO!), bvgari's cristalle.Estee's sensous nude, I did enjoy D&G the one (the rose) So back to NR EDT and Gucci rush for my other days. Will take suggestions, seems like i like the woody/chypre/florals that last a while.

I first bought Lovely from Sarah Jessica Parker. I had to get used to it, I thought it was a quite overwhelming scent at first. Then I grew to love it, and now for me it is a quite distinct(ive), not mainstraim, perfume. Apparently I like musky flavours. Then I smelled Narciso Rodriquez and to me it was almost the same as Lovely (but a lot more expensive at the moment in Holland). A pity that Lovely will not be produced in the future. Missed opportunity I think.

I agree with UrbanBeautiful, it is difficult to press the diffuser on the ones I have tried. I like the scent, although best after a couple of hours, before that it is a bit too strong. Have only tried the EdP. Lasts very long on my skin, at least 8 hours.

Where to begin?

Confession: I have resisted the urge to purchase NR's infamously worshipped For Her for a couple of years now, always able to rationalise the SJP similarities often written about here and discussed elsewhere.

May I openly admit I have been a fool for allowing myself to accept the aforementioned comparison based on blotter testing.

I own SJP Lovely and SJP Lovely Winter Sparkle (the added shimmer lends a certain oomph and plays down the lavender note) YES, there are similarities, I agree, however (!!!), there is one fundamental difference.

Narciso Rodriiguez For Her becomes one with the wearer. The musk seeps into your skin and blends with who you are.

It becomes YOU!

For Her stays with you, it is not something you can wash off. It playfully hangs around even peeking through a completely different fragrance selection the next day.

There is a reason SJP wears NRFH, and I now believe I know why. Hats off to team SJP for creating something similar and perhaps more accessible, but not the same.

I finally get it.

Ok, I really want to write something nice about this perfume (since so many people absolutely love it!), but I'm kind of reluctant.
I keep "revisiting" one other paper strip you see, still contaminated by this delightful potion called "Spellbound" (a leftover from yesterday's review lying on my desk) and I have to admit that while we are most definitely talking about two different categories of perfume here, it is evident we are also talking about two different classes as well.
So maybe good "for her", but not good "for me".

i dont really like the fragrance, although my mom loves it, its quite musky and dark, but also quite sweet, very sexy and womanly... and actually all the things that i could like, but not this one. anyways. its not the scent i want to speak about, but the bottle! i remember it was my moms fave scent, until i accidentially "dropped" it. it didnt break, but something went wrong with the diffuser, so it was impossible to spray the perfume anymore. it was unpressable... so my mom tried to get it fixed but nothing would work, so she had to throw it away, although the bottle still was half full. today, i tried to test the perfume in 2 different shops. everytime the same scenario... everything looks fine, but the diffuser is not pressable... and nothing comes out. 2! no 3!!! times... there is something seriously wrong with their concept... the bottle looks really beautiful but it breaks sooo quickly! i want to get my mom another bottle for her bd soon because i broke hers years ago, and since then she never haid it again... but im hesitating, i just dont want the same thing to happen again after she sprays it 10 times.. i mean this stuff is expencive! and then that!?! anyone else experiencing those problems???...

Olfactory ambrosia.

NR EDT opens as sheer, radiant white musk with an abstract floral-fruitiness from the osmanthus and orange blossom. The initial impression is that of delicately sweet honey or pale nectar. This faint sweetness wears off after several minutes, developing into a dewy green wood accord that highlights the pure beauty of the musk. A true skin scent that wears like a personal aura.

That said, give a pass on the EDP. While the sheer woodiness of the EDT compliments one's natural skin scent and elevates it to a personal ideal, the EDP incorporates a heavier rose accord that lends a strange, fleshy feel to the overall composition. End result: the unnerving impression of a stranger's olfactory presence draped over your own.

I recently got a mini EDP of this, thanks to a lovely Fragrantica member who I've just done a swap with. It's not necessarily the type of fragrance that I would be drawn to initially but I tested it yesterday and on my skin it smells really quite nice. It's a little 'cool' to me at first, a little brisk and professional smelling so I think it would be a good perfume to wear for business (or perhaps if you mean business!). It smells softer and a little more powdery after it's been on my skin for half an hour or so and that's when I prefer it. It kind of reminds me of something that I can't quite put my finger on but for some reason 'Cachet' by Prince Matchabelli (which my sister used to wear sometimes in her teens) popped into my head so maybe it has some similarities to that, although I checked the Cachet notes and I can only see that vetiver is a shared note. I definitely prefer this to Cachet though and I really used to hate the smell of Cachet!

Some of the other reviewers here have mentioned that the EDP seems to have a rose note in it and I also picked up on that. It does smell very rosy. Having said that though, to my nose there's also something slightly masculine in this perfume, which might be the vetiver / coriander combo. The staying power is good - 12+ hours on my skin.

I quite like this perfume but I'm not sure I would wear it often enough to warrant getting a big bottle of it, but I'd consider getting a smaller bottle (if it comes in smaller ones!) or another mini. At the moment though my little mini EDP is enough for me.

I have EDP (pink bottle, black box). I love it. It lasts absolutely ages on me, 8 hours+ on my skin, even better when spritzed onto my shirt as well.
I also own Lovely, but when both are finished I will spend my money on replacing NR. Its a little more complex, and longer lasting than Lovely, though the scents are SO similar, and IMO worth the extra cost. Fabulous stuff, very very sexy.

I wore the black bottle version for several years and greatly enjoyed it. Perhaps the best example I have found of a scent that made me feel very sexy, while still seeming appropriate to wear to work. I find the musk detectable but not overwhelming, and the overall scent is soft and feminine, without being flowery or romantic. However, as others have mentioned, it's become a bit too popular, and its place in my fragrance wardrobe is currently held by Chanel's Bois des Iles (perhaps even more subtle and a little less sexy, but much less frequently worn).

I wrote about NR before, but I feel a need to say I still love it even if I don't wear it.
I had a NR's period years ago and I simply loved it. I'm talking about the black EdT bottle, the only one I like. All other versions I cannot stand.
In my present obsession for orange blossom/neroli I checked if my most beloved fragrances had it inside and bingo! It was right intuition! Almost all of them had that note, even if I was not always aware of it.
NR EdT makes no exception with an even better feature: orange blossom mixed with Egyptian musk and amber! The smell of heaven perhaps... a sexy heaven!
On my skin orange blossom comes out very noticeably but it's also blended in a creamy musk. No other scent in the line has the same luminous creamy mid eastern effect.
I had a cheap dupe of this scent which smelled very similar and not bad at all, but there is just something in the original that cannot be duped.
So why I don't wear this now?

Reason 1 - I have a strong olfactive memory and all perfumes conjure up images of my past or even precise scenes. I feel like pulled back to old emotions and I don't feel it as a good thing, regardless of positive or negative. Unfortunately it's not something I can control.

Reason 2 - It has become too popular. I smell it very often around and it seems to especially attract overdone, overjeweled, tall, tanned, branded snobbish ladies in their 50s. I'm quite the opposite.

I like to smell it in my privacy when I'm in a mood for it.

Mmmm... this one epitomizes sexy. I love it.

I tried the pink tester. At first I wasn't so sure - I'm not used to darker smelling perfumes like this. But once it warmed a little while on my skin, it became intoxicating. It's unusual and complex and very hard to pick out individual notes, which I like. It's musky, but not sweet.

It reminds me that I am a WOMAN, not a teenager, and I have the curves, wisdom, experience and strength to prove it. All of that from a perfume? YES! That is one reason why there are so many of us perfumaholics here...
fragrance evokes feelings, some of them being deeply powerful. It took trying it twice, but this is one of those fragrances for me.

The minute I sprayed this on my wrist, I realized it was the perfume that my professor wears! I always thought it made her smell very elegant, not only because not many professors wear noticeable perfume, but because of how unique and striking the scent was!

I like it, but I could never wear it, for obvious reasons.

I'm speaking here about the EDP (the pink bottle). It is one of my favourite fragrances cause it has that "something" which makes it unique and unspeakable wonderful. When a lady wearing FOR HER passes you by, you'll know in a blink that it is special. That's what I'm looking for in a perfume: to be like no others, to be unique. It is elegant but still fresh, suitable for day and night wear, and long lasting. As all the perfumes, it must be applied also on clothes if you want to feel its smell since morning to evening.

@primadonna35 thank you for the response, I used to prefer the EDT but I actually prefer the EDP now. I guess if I decide to buy it again, I will have to spray on my clothes. I find the EDT very sharp and synthetic now. I used to have a different opinion. EDP all the way!

I tried the pink one(edp I guess) and I really liked it! truth is, I didn't like it at first but 20-30 min. later, a nice smell was coming to my nose, I thought it was guerlain idylle which I like. but I remembered I didn't try idylle that day, it was narciso rodriguez! it smelled like a softer version of idylle, less harsh. I like it, but someone said that black version has better sillage and longevity. true?false? black smells the same??

I'm beginning to suspect that I'm anosmic to some component of Egyptian Musk that smells to others like the sacred bedsheets of Isis herself. My nose groups 'Egyptian Musk' scents into two categories 1) not there at all, or 2) unbearable chemical wallop that could never have exuded from the skin of any living creature.

Alas, for me Narciso Rodriguez falls into group 2 (so does SJP Lovely, often cited as a wallet-friendly alternative). The sad thing is that I can detect a pretty orange blossom note alongside the musk, and I can well believe that Narciso Rodriguez strikes many people as being a sexy, stylish perfume.

Opinions are clearly so widely divided on this scent that I think the minority of us who are 'haters' really must be experiencing something that most people don't – though since the offending note gets described as anything from BO to rotting leaves to insect spray, I think the main reaction is a simple Do Not Like, with the perfume then being mentally compared to whatever smell that person finds especially unpleasant. I got the same thing with Givenchy's original Ange ou Demon, and I would love to know the chemical culprit (IIRC, i hate perfume's Christopher Brosius says that he finds the synth musk galaxolide to be nauseating, so it could be this). Test carefully before buying.

I bought this perfum after reading the revieuws. I must say i'm so glad that i can add this to my collection. I must say love at first sniff. I got the pink bottle {edp}. It so fresh i can smell the roses, and the musk and after an half an hour i smell a little bit of the patchouli. Its is a spicy yet fresh perfum that i loved immediately, but actually i'm already addicted to this wonderful,sexy,feminine spicy, fresh perfum. I really love fragantica for letting me discover new perfums, a still have a lot to discover.

I just got this in the EdP and it is sooo lovely! Typically this is not my type of scent but this smell so good on me, it's so fresh and clean smelling it's a really lovely perfume. The bottle is so cute too, with the pink bottle.

This is def a perfume you should go out and try a few times before purchasing because this is not everyones cup of tea but on the right person this can't go wrong. So happy I bought this :)

I have the EDT....This perfume would be lovely, except there is a note in there that smells very strongly to me of mothballs, or even a person with bad/musty breath. It's a very very odd note, yet I would still say it's a nice perfume. It is strong with excellent lasting power, and lasts over 13 hrs on me. I think I would love to smell this on anyone else in passing whiffs, but it doesn't work for me because of the moth-bally note--guessing one of the musks.

This is the first "new" perfume I have truly liked. It is rather enigmatic in nature and goes on evolving and revealing itself. The middle and base-notes are very good at holding on to my wrists. It's got just the right amount of floral hint without being sweet or overpowering. Nothing "girlie" about this yet it manages to be a very feminine scent. A brilliant creation, I'd say!

This has to be the essential Musk Perfume nothing in my honest opinon captures the note of musk then Narciso Rodriguez It's translucient to a point of a clear skin scent due to the presence of osmanthus sweetens the musk base bergamot adds the zest and tinges of amber dries the top 20 minutes later Narsiso turns woodsy with burnt edges vanilla gives it a warm delicious touch, There is no such thing thing is the basenote in Narciso the musk osmanthus
abd vanilla plays it's self The Final verdict It's Chic Sexy Clean And Modern but advoids the fake facade of the candy dandy scent that has smered the perfume world.

I can say that it´s one of the best perfumes I have EVER smelled..EDT is VERY sexy and provocative, it´s not like its pink sister, not that rosey and creamy and sensual..to me, it´s almost agresively sexual!! Seductive musk with a hint of fresh orange blossom..I wish it wasnt so expensive in my country! It´s sooooo ALLURING! And the lasting power is INCREDIBLE! WANT IT WANT IT WANT IT!

after i've read so many good reviews about it , i had to test it out... but actually i hate it. on my skin both, the edp and the edt, smell disgusting. after sniffing my boyfriend said immediately: "you have to wash this off!" i dont know if it is the musk but to me its just disturbing. don't wanna offend anyone but on my skin it just doesn't work.

N.R. EDP brings forth a seductive aroma of sweet musk that's simply addictive and intoxicating. Sexy, Modern, Feminine and Bold, this was quite a suprising creation for me that stands out from the crowd (but not entirely unique).

The other scent that I got beside the musk smells like some kind of Orange/Pineapple juice, or a kiddy vitamin. I suppose that's what the Orange Blossom is. This effect is identical to that of Estee Lauders Brasil Dream. They smell so much a like, NR is just a more sophisticated version IMO.

I first imagined a young and fashionable working woman smelling of NR. But oddly enough, I received nostalgic visions of a hospital, a lady doctor in her office, and sterile medical equipments. I think it may be the orange blossom that reminds me of a vitamin chewey my pediatrician would give me after each visit. Come to think of it, NR definitely has some of that medicinal-chemical edge to it. This analysis is not exactly a bad thing for me, but it could be for others. So, you can't buy this without trying first.

Overall, this is a nice one and I like it (though it did make me a bit nausea's hours later).
The longevity is great, as for sillage/projection NR is sharp and strong, but it stays closer to your skin. It would be great for office wear but it suits ladies of any age and could be worn on most occasions.

*(again, thank you NathalieZ for the sample)

I went to Nordstrom's yesterday specifically to try out Narciso Rodriguez For Her after reading reviews. I really did prefer the creamier scent of the EDP as the EDT was a little more "spiky" if you will. Not as rounded as the EDP, but in general, same scent. Upon first spray of the EDP, the scent is VERY strong. So strong, I had to open the window 'cause i could taste it. The opening is definitely Orange Blossom -not Orange, mind you- Orange Blossom, which is absolutely more floral as opposed to the citrus. I'm waiting for it to settle down, and as it does, the Amber comes out to play and it's no longer so sharp. It's a pleasant scent, and I can now smell the delicate Egyptian Musk. The Egyptian Musk holds the fort down with this fragrance, but it's the Orange Blossom that sings out clearly at the top and stays there for the entire wear of this EDP. Many people call this a "skin scent" as it's not a cloyingly sweet fragrance, but it has a nice mixture of everything which must be why this parfum is so universal. Personally, it's still too perfume-y to me, as I usually wear the basically see-through (inexpensive) scent of Jovan White Musk, which has almost no floral whatsoever and wears the closest to my skin than any other scent. But I digress. This is a wonderful fragrance for those who enjoy musk & flowers, and would rather not out-do the perfume counter in aroma.

If this perfume were a woman: she grew up in the country and moved to the city for college. She's sophisticated and young and is someone who is a "good girl" with a bit of a naughty side when you get to know her. She's fun and flirty but also has a good head on her shoulders and knows when to be serious. She's smart and she likes to have fun. As far as perfumes go, this one is a "like" in my book! Very pleasing to my nose, but I'm still on the look out for my signature fragrance, which I'm thinking might be a non-floral musk, unlike this (not for me, although well-done and pleasing) fragrance.

Recently purchased both the EDT and EDP in 7.5ml mini bottles.

They smell DIVINE. Both of them. I want to purchase a 50ml bottle but due to the painful price tag I can't get both. I don't know which one! The EDP is quite lovely and feminine, as well as the EDT. I find the latter to last longer on me for some reason. The EDT, unlike the EDP, does smell slightly different due to the hint of a masculine note somewhere in the mix. It is in no way offensive or off-putting at all to me. Both versions are surprisingly sweet and not as musky as I thought they would be. I was worried they would be all musty-smelling and wondered how a fragrance that was predominantly musk could be so popular. Now I know why.

I admit for both fragrances, when I first apply them they stink to high-heaven (not like: "Ew I'm gonna throw up", more like: "It's so strong! When does it soften up?"). It is SO worth waiting it out, though. Once you reach the dry down you will want to just sniff your wrist all day. I know I did.

Not strange at all, right. :p

Both EDT and EDP are gorgeous but I still prefer the woodsy EDT over the rosy EDP. The EDT is very fresh with a touch of green (I can smell lily of the valley though it's not listed in the notes. When I spray it on my skin I get a dry powdery smell but when I spray it on my hair the scent has a fresh wet quality (similar to CK Thruth), it's like a blow of fresh air from the river. I find its greenish powdery woodiness somewhat reminiscent of Chanel No19 - it has equally assertive, independent, free-spirited feminine vibe.

So intoxicating! The combination of musks in this fragrance lends to an enigmatic verve, a positively mesmerising effect that allows the topnotes to float for a long time. It evokes images of childhood security, holidays, a crisp marina with pretty boats on Summer days, but also of assuredness and adulthood, sophistication and adventure.

This is as close to a perfect combination of scents and a balance of notes as I think is to be found, and can as easily become a signature fragrance for a man as a woman.

This is absolute PERFECTION! This can be worn in day or nite and be worn by the young and the old - it is sexy and flirty - it encompasses everything! I JUST LOVE IT! It may be pricey, but it is worth every penny. I have received compliments every time that I have worn it. I have the perfume, not the toliette. I have heard, but can not confirm that the toliette is somewhat weak and wears off too fast. I just want to say that I am a "Perfume Snob" and this one totally meets all my criteria - it just makes me feel so feminine and Girlie - It is a true Keeper - What a GO Mr. Rodriquez!

I love this. I have the black version (EDT spray and the rollerball perfume) and could easily make this my signature scent, if only it didn't make me break out in a rash! I love the composition of the fragrance, the sweet smell of light creamy musc, the delicious orange blossom keeping it all fairly light and wearable and the rounded vanilla note. This is not sweet in your face ice cream vanilla, but more like a soft come hither vanilla cuddled up in the warm musc. I have to wear in on my clothing and it can be detected even days later. Luckily the rollerball doesn't break me out so I wear this on my pulse points. Men love this scent, my bf says 'it doesn't really smell like you are wearing perfume, it just smells like you'.

I really like this. It is EXACTLY like Beauty by Elizabeth Arden, much more refined, but the exact same fragrance on my skin, which is good, because my husband always loved it on me. Even has the same sparkly nose tickling note(not sure what that is). Beauty actually lasts longer but is a little sharper. Two very lovely almost twin fragrances. The over all impression: this smells like a woman, and that is how I want to smell. Very bright and feminine.

I've had the honor of having FOR HER both version. At first glance you can guess that the perfumer is from CUBA because of tobacco aroma which accompanies this fragrance.

It's one of my fav. Mine is a limited edition in silver bottle. The scent is identical to the original EDT in black one.

I have samples of both EDT and EDP. There are little difference between these two. I think EDP fits girls in my age, since the flower fragrance is stronger than EDT.
And I want to buy a bottle of EDP in future.

I think the sample I tried was the EdP, but there seems to be quite a bit of confusion about which version is which. Whatever I have is super-strong. Sharp, white plastic flowers and spicy citrus in the opening are quickly joined by a note that smells like the “Egyptian musk” fragrance oil that is reputed to be one of the notes. This genre of fragrance oil does not smell like animalic musk, as the name would suggest, but rather is a spicy, patchouli-floral mix.

After about an hour of drying down it becomes a little bit soapy, then loses the floral edge and adds some conventional “white” musks to the “Egyptian” version. The whole thing fades fairly fast, which is surprising given the strong opening. From start to finish it’s only about 4-5 hours. The fragrance is well-made, but definitely not my style.

Many reviewers compare NR with lovely of sarah jessica parker. Don't let that fool you! They aren't twins, but more like sisters. I love NR(EDT), so I bought lovely blindly. I don't like it at all, it's so synthetic and the cypress is way to present. I think it ressembles the EDP more.

And about the lasting power: it's very weak on skin, but longlasting on clothes, so maybe you can spray it on your coat to smell it the whole day.

So sexy. Very long lasting but I agree with the other reviews that mention you just don't smell it anymore after a while. Your nose gets used to it but the others around you still smell it. I sprayed it (EDP) on to try it once and weeks later the perfume lingers on my clothes.

EDT absolutely smells like Lovely by SJP but Lovely is less special in my view. Go for the EDP for a unique experience and try Lovely if you just not ready yet...

I was looking for a fresh laundry smell. And I think a found it. Most people recommended the perfumes of "Clean" and "Pure grace" of Philosophy to me, but I found these quit synthetic.

NR on the other hand is such a lovely smell! It smells so pure! And it is more complex and has more depth then Clean of Pure grace. Although I don't like the beginning, indeed it has a citrus soapy note, but the drydown is so gorgeous! It's so warm, sexy and soft.

I love this perfume. I had both EDT and EDP. Its true The EDT is stronger than the EDP and much sharper.
you know when ur in a room and there something sprayed. you smell it for mayb an hour but then u start not smelling it anymore coz ur nose got used to it, and only other people can tell when they just enter this room. I feel this when I wear NR. just 2 sprays and a minute later I can't smell it anymore. Not coz it faded. its beacuse its so powerful that my nose got used to it, even tho it took less than 5 minutes. And its only when I greet someone they tell me I smell divine.
And yeah, Is it me or is every time I spray this perfume on my wrist or neck its gets really hot where I sprayed it?

My mini EDT (black bottle) arrived today. I gave it a sniff and dabbed on the wrist... and cannot stop sniffing it. It must be the musk but, to me, this one is pure sex personified! Uh oh, my hubby's gonna be in trouble tonight... ;-)

OK, I think it's the musk but there is something else in it that just has that wow-factor to me. I see a teacher in a sexy, body hugging, sensuously soft woolly flannel suit, Chanel style, in the early afternoon, reading an old book at a library that has sunlight pouring in through the tall, cathedral windows. It's super quiet, and soem tiny specks of dust are floating in the surprisingly crisp air. She takes a break from reading and rests her perfumed wrists on the pages. The smell of perfume mixes with the smell of the paper (but not the ink) of the book she is reading. Nothing musty or dusty though, just a scent that I can only describe as "classic". A very nice blend, I no longer wonder why so many love it. I do, too.
I feel so lucky to be able to wear this well, and I do see a big bottle of it in my future!

This one is really gorgeous! One of the best fragrances I´ve ever smelled.

NR For Her is full of intriguing contradictions: It´s truly feminine but also perfectly suitable for men. It´s mild but has a great sillage. It´s classy and ellegant but somehow uncommon. It´s delicate enough to evoke the idea of innocence, but extremaly musky sexy as well.

I can´t get bergamot on it, but orange blossom, musk and amber notes blended in a such a perfect way that each one comes out mildly, and overall what you get is a very delicate concoction.

I am a man, and this is my signature perfume (the black bottle). I love everything about this perfume, from the image, packaging, the bottle etc. The EDP is a bit too floral and feminine and soft, but the EDT is such a heavenly smell for me. It is so dark and sexy. Must be the musk. I also love the Narciso for him musc edition EDP and I tend to mix these two together, and the result is: Wow!!!!! I love it.

The for her EDT (Black bottle) is a very dark, warm, seductive, sexy and inviting, classy perfume. A perfume for the most sophisticated perfume connoisseur. I simply love it!!!!!

I would love to try the musc for her intense edp soon.

(Review for the EDT)
It's such a pleasure to have this one on my skin..it should probably be, equally, the strangest and the best perfume I've ever smelled.

Narciso Rodriguez For Her knows exactly how to be stunning and mysterious, how to please both women and men by bewitching their senses.
It opens with a soapy citrus note, that immediately turns into a radiant, warm ocean of musk in which I imagine floating white flowers abandoned by a Goddess..now she's sailing the waters to meet her beloved God beyond the horizon.
How can a scent be so forwardly sensual and reassuring at the same time? It just smells of a long yearned embrace..

On me this one doesn't last that long, I was expecting for a higher longevity but that's ok..I should try the EDP too.
Too bad I discovered such a jem only last year..

A true masterpiece, it really heals my heart each time.

This is the one with the X factor, if you like musk. An epiphany of feminity. Very well balanced. It expresses ultimate sensuality, innocence and elegance at the same time.
EDT is better (EDP goes too musky and too "in your face" sexy) but lasts considerably shorter.

Narciso I love you but I betrayed you occasionally with Lovely by SJP, could you forgive me? Still you're the best, sexy, creamy, musky, one of the few pure florals I love! I discovered NR a few years ago and everyone around me seemed to wear it. I thought it wasn't for me at that time and still now I don't wear it very often but it's simply georgeous when I want to feel sexy and smell special!

This review is for the eau de parfum: pink bottle.

If you are looking for a modern well behaved rose with musk nuances then look no further, the eau de parfum version of this fragrance is that in spades. As a lover of in your face chypres I find it laughable that this fragrance is being described above as an 'agressive chypre'. In no way shape or form is this even close to the composition of a chypre.

What we have here is a beautifully delicate "Floral Woody Musk" that can be worn day or night and will not offend anyone with a sensitive nose. I do like it, I just wish it had more presence. I swear I sprayed this three times on my decollette, once on each side of my neck, twice on each arm, twice on each wrist, and twice behind each knee and it was barely detectable by my family around me. Typical of modern fragrances there is not much sillage and longevity is a disapointment. I have better sillage and longevity from my vintage Caron eau de toilettes. Absolutely does not compare to the quality of the vintage powerhouse fumes. I tend to layer this with some Indian oud essential oil, or rose sandalwood attar to kick it up a notch and extend the longevity.

Eheheh...poor jellybeantree! She's right:
- black box, pink bottle --> eau de parfum;
- pink box, black bottle --> eau de toilette.
I prefer the edt: i find it a more "defined" fragrance, with a clear musky and vanillic undertone; the other one (edp) is less intense, maybe more floral.

My reviews are never "professional" meaning, I can tell if a scent has predominant aldeheides or oriental spices but I can´t decompose the notes as well as most "fragranticans" can. So all I can say about this perfume (that I like, not love)is that I get complements from wearing it. Men find it sexy and for women it's a bit of a modern powerfragrance. Maybe, should I dare, a reinvented CK Obsession. It's all it is.
Edit:
What I've been wearing so far was a sample of the EDP. Today I'm finnally using the bottle of EDT, a gift from my father about two years ago. I don't think it´s worth it. Sillage is very poor and the EDT smells more of a bug spray.

Este perfume es una delicia. Me encanta muchisimo... cuando me lo puse, al principio es un poco fuerte (El de la botella negra) pero sepues se suavisa y queda divino. Lo q me parecio curioso es que en mi piel se parece un poco (ojo, en mi piel) al femme de hugo boss. No se porque porque no comparten notas, pero se parece un poco. :)

I normally fall for light floral scents. This was one of the rare exceptions. I totally fell in love with it. I couldn't see myself in this perfume but I had the desire to become the woman it portrayed. For me this perfume envisions a femme fatale in her early 30s who didn't lose her innocence and childish side. I smelled it in Paris Lafayette so in my memory this perfume and the bohemian side of Paris blended in...
I say five stars because it has the power to make one adore it even if its so out of one's character.

After a long wait I've finally bought the EDT, and it's just GORGEOUS!! Like another user wrote here, I think this is a very sexy, intimate fragrance, it exudes femininity and sensuality, and draws a lot of compliments. The dry down is beautiful, and it goes perfectly with my skin chemistry. In paper, it does have a small similarity with Idylle (which I also own), but once it's in my skin that similarity fades away, this is a unique fragrance and I'm in love with it, this will be my signature scent for a long time.

Oddly enough, the EDP does not agree with me at all, I tried it on before buying the EDT and it smelt too strong, at one point I actually forgot that the EDP is supposed to be a floral fragrance, on me it smelt like a very strong oriental: simply not right for me, I'll stay with the EDT.

I tried this one (EDP) and I might be the minority here but it reminds me of an old lady's perfume. I was looking for something that was similar to the musk scents of the 80-s. This one's nothing like what I hoped for.

I really liked JLo Glow before something changed in it's formula. After a while the musk would surface and it was a clean musk - not dirty like most these days. I read on another site that China Rain smells similar and it too smells nice but doesn't quite hit the nail on the head for me.

I really hoped this one would work for me but it didn't. It was too sour and rosey.

My daughter's father gave me the huge black bottle of this when it first came out. I found the bottle fascinating and the perfume as well. It is unique and gorgeous and comes on strong...The problem I had with the fragrance is that it just didn't move or transform on my skin. It started out LOUD and then just became a quieter version of itself.
However, the pink bottle is a stunner. It has all of the charms of its older sister...but is refined, elegant, lovely and soft--while maintaining enough individuality to put it in a class by itself. I adore this perfume the way I adored the original Chanel 19. This fragrance enchants me. And that has only happened with a rare few.

EDT - First off I hated, really hated this perfume. I got it as a gift and was contemplating ways of wasting it to use it up. Then gave it a few days and could not stop smelling my jumpers or my wrists.

The orange blossom is initially very sweet but nice not too in your face, but I LOVE the drydown. A glorious musk, and I'm not musk's biggest fan.

The bottle is a thing of beauty, super cool, modern; although my cap doesn't fit well and spins a lot.

If you hated this one at first, its definitely worth another go.

Knocked Cinema off as my favourite winter perfume. Seriously ON IT!

*this is a review of the EDT, which I'm told is less sweet and has more musk than floral than the EDP* I'm not usually a fan of florals, but Narciso Rodriguez has won me over with this one. This is a sweet floral - I feel I smell some honey in here, like flowers steeped in honey. That must be the combination of the orange blossom and amber. The musk is just delicious in this! it really warms up on my skin, and the dry down is sexy. The fact that my husband likes it (he usually hates fragrances) reaffirms that. I think this would make a lovely signature scent because it's soft, feminine, and seductive. I will say though -- it doesn't smell great on paper - so if you spray it on paper to test it, you're not doing it justice - it really smells nice on skin. Also, the opening is a bit harsh - I admit, there is something sharp and "off" in the opening (like bug spray?), but that smell goes away really quickly (at least on me).

This is that close to the skin, signature scent that people will ask you about. Smells different on everyone. On me its a clean musk that lasts a long time. This is my old stand by I use this when I don't feel like smelling like a bunch of flowers but want to smell like my sexy self. I recommend the EDT less sweet and don't buy the roller ball it leaks.

EDT version (edp is more floral)
A classy, feminine wisp of a scent, an always present but never strident musk( the clean kind!).Resembles the EDP at the outset but here they depart. The rose supports the creamy musk beautifully at the base; floral notes never predominate. It really is a skin scent with excellent longevity..very intimate but would be suitable for everyday wear as well. Strangely enough I think a man could get away with wearing this!

There has been so much hype about this fragrance I was expecting something really special but no - it's the usual modern recipe nicked from Angel of flowers mixed with mens aftershave, a concept which was totally novel at the time. Not unpleasant but not original - I won't be buying it.

EDP review...
I was dying to have this perfume after I tried a sample. A scent that I can't forget. Unexpectedly my husband gave it as a gift. I was so happy. Since then, I use this scent everyday, it's one of my favorite things right now! It is ultra feminine, fresh and it holds. I'm impressed with it's lasting power. I get compliments all the time. I just love it! It is a true modern fragrance that captures sophistication and intrigue. Just beautiful and classy, this is my favorite fragrance at the moment. I can't get enough of it.

Upon application, NARCISO RODRIGUEZ FOR HER edp immediately elicited this response from me: "Oh my goodness, another one of these," by which I meant sweet patchouli. Upon development, however, NR becomes muskier and muskier and begins to remind me more of SJP LOVELY or AGENT PROVOCATEUR than of COCO MADEMOISELLE or SO ELIXIR or ORIENS, or.... This is definitely a serious musk bomb, and, along the continuum from clean to skanky musk, NR is situated just to the skanky side of center.

NR has more patchouli and is much sweeter than LOVELY, but they are definitely united by the musk connection. I think that I prefer my musk clean and clear, which is perhaps why I'm somewhat ambivalent about both NR and LOVELY, the latter of which I own but rarely wear...

(Edp Review)

I was waiting for a fragrance like this, honestly, today floral scents are beautiful but so weak, i still need some heavy and aggressive fragrance, just to feel alive again. In this case Narciso Rodriguez For Her definitely fulfill my expectations..

The initial notes are fairly woody and intense, then after a while powdery flowers with a strong presence of musk begin to bloom. The powerlasting is good. Just to add: This scent is not for everyone.

Without doubt, this is a verry classy scent. One interest musc interpretation, and one high quality composition.

A favorite. This scent is extremely dark and deep and exudes sexuality. Think powdery musk and honey. If you could take the essence of a woman at her most intimate and vulnerable and put it into a bottle, this would be For Her. It's the scent of a woman with whom one brief encounter can haunt a man's mind for the rest of his life.

Narciso truly knows how to capture women, both with his clothing and with his fragrances. This scent is for someone who is strong, confident, and passionate. I discovered that one of my close friends wears it. She is very petite and giggles non-stop. She douses herself with this perfume, and it's so wrong and gross! A classy, sensual, and sophisticated lady knows that just a touch of this fragrance is all one needs.

A funny thing happened to me with this perfume. At some point I wanted to get rid of it and tried swapping it twice... and both times I was asked to swap it back as the other person couldn't use it because of "wrong" body chemistry. So, if that black bottle is so attached to me, maybe I have to use it myself:)))

The scent is creamy and mostly musky, I hardly get any flowers at all. Anyway the notes are dificult to dissect, they are all well-blended together. I wear it with a kind of grunge look - black and grey, corduroy,jeans, loose-knitted jumpers and so on.

The lasting power is amazing, I can still feel it after the shower, and on clothes it stays like forever.

What I consider modern in a fragrance is its ability to convey an idea, a concept and not a classic image. For example a rose note conveys the idea of a rose. Peachy notes convey the idea of fruit and of course peach. Then in my opinion a modern parfume shouldn't convey this kind of images but just a concept or an idea. There are parfumes that are such abstract creatures to be able to reach your brain with ideas without imagines. Narciso rodrigues for her is this kind of modern and original creation. To the question "what does it smell like?" I wouldn't be able to quote any distinguishable note. Very peculiar and interesting. Always asking for a second sniff.

I had this on my wrist yesterday, and when I sniffed it I thought for a second that it was idylle! Strange, but something seem to really resemble, but in a more musky vague way. I like it, but it is not a necessity to me... It is kind of fresh and dirty at the same time. (I'm talking about the EDT by the way)

This is for the EdP one. I got a smell of it in an airport and forgot all about it later. Until recently when it all of a sudden popped up in my head and I remembered the smell as i almost smelled it on myself. I had to get it!
It takes a few tries to get used to it, at first I felt it was sort of "above" my skin, like it did not melt in. I continued wearing it and after 3 days or so, it finally "melted in" and I smelled it and went to heaven! Sorry if that did not make sense, that is the only way can describe this unusual feeling.

I can only wear this when I am in a very mellow mood. When no other perfumes I have seems to fit my mood. It is soothing and calm, it flows around me and I feel very relaxed. I wear it before I go to bed aswell.

It is very feminine and mature! And above all, very romantic! Its sensual and soft.
I wish lasting time could be longer though.

I sampled the edp today and to me this was a dead ringer for SJP's Lovely which I used to own. Strange, since the two scents really don't have any notes in common. I did not pick up any similarity to Idylle as another reviewer did, so once again, it's all in the eye, or rather 'nose' of the beholder. Curious now to see what the edt's like since according to fellow reviewers, the edp and edt are distinct scents.
Oh, the lasting power of the edp's impressive. I've had it on all day, washed my arm a few times, and it's still there!

I got a decant of the perfume (pearlescent pink juice!) and thank goodness b/c orange does not agree with my skin. This is gentle and soft, initially i got a blast of lilac which simmered down to honeysuckle and rose over a very clean musk. It seems to be very much a skin scent- very nicely executed.

This was a very "impulse" purchase for me. I was shopping online and i saw how pretty the bottle was and the majority of the reviews seemed to be positive so i bought it for around £80.

I REALLY wish i had smelt it first becasue i'm a little disapointed. my main problem is the staying power..like a few of the reviews below have said this is very light and begins to fade very quickly and unlike other perfumes of the same calibre and price (let's say "Flowerbomb" for example) this has hardly any lasting power.

Now, dont get me wrong the smell it self is very pleasant...to me it smells a little soapy (which is never a bad thing)and clean. it's very girly & probaly best for daytime.....

...But for me however this perfume has had it's role reduced to "pretty bottle on my dressing table"


it also reminds me a little of Kate Moss's first fragance, anyone else agree?

I just purchased this today in the EDT form and I must say that it is quite lovely although very light...

For one reason or another Im picking up violet in this one although its not listed here... Anyone else???

This scent is an enigma to me. I have to review this again because I had returned my NR EDP for the EDT. And I feel its important for people to know that these are two completely different scents. I had no idea that the EDT was the original first NR scent. For some reason the EDP came a few years later because I guess some consumers wanted something softer. Well as Ive tried both versions, I dont feel it gets any softer than the EDP. It has a rosy note amist a polite musk base. It was too soft on my skin to the point that it became invisible. My only recourse was to go out and purchase the EDT which I hoped would be more lasting and a little less pretty and polite. Now Im own the EDT. The EDT has no rose note, rather I get a jamine and honey note that accompanies the vetiver and egyptian musk. Now I have to say as much as I love this scent, I feel cheated because even though the scent remains on my skin for quite some time, I no longer smell it after a half hour. Its a very clean, and again polite fragrance on me. It becomes a skin scent that others can only detect if they have been able to go beyond my personal space. And even once they are within my aura, they would never know that I was wearing perfume. They would just think I had amazing smelling skin. This is not a bad thing. However I wear scents to please my senses, and since I cannot smell this on myself Im rather bummed. I may have to use this scent for layering, and use a nice floral on top.

Now Im still hoping that somehow my skin or my nose will somehow be able to get a grip on this scent. Its possible for this to happen, because it has happed to me before with Omnia. When I first started using it, I needed to apply radically in order to get the desired amount of scent, then mysteriously this scent became powerful in both sillage and longevity. I hope this happens with NR.

Im at a lose as to why NR EDT and EDP are not marketed as two different perfumes. They are in fact completely different compositions.

I really don't know where to start with this one. I only know this was a revelation to me, having this sprayed on. I'm talking about the EDT since this was the first one on the European market, the EDP came later.

I really love it but I always miss something without knowing what. I like this one the most when I use both NR and Cristalle by Chanel. Maybe because that's the note I'm missing. If I wear it alone it's too straight for me, it is indeed very musky. Maybe I should try the EDP, I think they made this later to fill in the abscence of anything else.
Bottle design is awesome, I love the masculin, strong bottle that gives away a lot of the scent because it makes you feel comfortable and nice, it's like a veil hanging around your shoulders.
I will definitely buy this one again (EDP) if I could only stop buying al those other scents I like. Usually I never buy a perfume twice (except for Cristalle). I'm glad to be able to add another one to my short list after 20 years.

Today is a breakthrough!! This is my third time trying NR and I FINALLY get it. It seems my troubles stem from being a wee bit anosmic to it since now I have blasted myself with two big sprays (from both versions to compare)thier signals are coming in loud & clear.

In the case of the EDT, it is loud and vibrant, the lemony orange flower is romping joyously over the musk. Sexy, confident and cheerful.

Of course, the more interesting & complex EDP is now, and has always been my focus. The musky rose is glorious here. I finally get the dirty panties reference although as a mainstream it is more fascimile than the naughty knickers found in Montale Aoud Queen Rose.

There is also an elegance here and a soft vintage bathroom kind of smell. Not soap or powder as such, just an inexplicable clean, sweet muskiness. There is a lot more to NR EDP than meets the eye and I doubt I am getting all its subtle nuances right now, I need at least one more foray. I seem to have commitment issues!!!

This is an EDP review.

I didnt expect to respond the way I did when I tried this on at my local fragrance shop. The reason why is because when it was fairly new on the market, a SA at bloomingdales was pushing it on me. And hey, if your a SA the easiest way to turn away a customer is to shove fragrances under customers noses. I made up my mind. NO THANKS.

However, heres the power of making your own decisions. Once I was alone with this scent on my arm. I felt I had to have it. Couldnt stop thinking about it and then took the plunge and bought it.

Now that Im living with this scent I realized that I can appy this fairly liberally as its quite a subtle clean scent. Its a clean musky scent that lies close to the skin. At the same time its a little dirty, not in the sweaty way but in an earthy way. Like fresh soil, dirt. I guess this is the vetiver. And thankfully its there because without it, this scent would be too proper for me.

For me this scent has no limits to where and when I can use it. Its light enough for summer, strong enough for winter. Day, night, whenever.

It has a bit of a soapy dry down, which adds to its clean appeal. The rose note is always there. And the vanilla rounds it out just enough to keep it from being too sharp. Most of all its highly musky, which is why I fell for it. Musk and I have a special bond.

Had this one and gave it away..although something about it pleased me, at the same time something about it bothered me...I know it must sound crazy but I smelled something like...like 'armpit sweat' and it wasn't mine I can assure you..(-:
Cheap wines sometimes give me that same sensation and I'm very sensible to that...
But I do understand that it can be a great fume in combination with the right chemistry.
Not for me though...

I received my bottle of Roderiquez for her EDP yesterday.... Yummy!!!!

Sprayed it on this morning, instantly smelled a more light flower fragrance with a subtle hint of spice underneath. After about 30 minutes, it settled down quite nicely, not nearly as dark or intense as the EDT, but still provactive smelling just the same. Feels and smells a little more flirty, leading up to the sensous seduction. I got to work and everyone was enraptured by how good I smelled, Hmmmm, definitely working on the flirty side. LOL.... I was told that they could smell me when they rounded the corner, not strong, just a hint of a tease of my scent.

It's been 6 hours and I can barely smell it. The EDT definitely lasts longer on my skin. I tried the trick of rubbing where I sprayed the perfume, and I can smell it teasing my senses again. LOVE this perfume!!!

Now I have to try the other scents in this line!!!

I am wearing For Her EDT today. It's a scent with some meat to it. Spicy in a good way.

Makes me think of a woman clothed in black lace and pearls. Reclining on her chaise lounge eating chocolate dipped strawberries and enjoying a nicely chilled bottle of wine, smiling provactively to a scantily clad lover.

It has a nice staying power, I can usually still smell it on me at the end of the day. It does stay close to the skin, but that's ok, it encourages men to come a little closer so they can sniff my fragrance. LOL.

Madly in love with this scent!
Can't find anything better, makes you feel sexy and totally relaxed.
When you spray it on, it can smell a little bit 'dirty' in a sexual way. Honey/Jasmin like.
But be patient, it devellopes in a beautiful way. The sharpness makes place for softness, powder and musk.
The smell feels 'round' like it is build op from large molecules, instead of those tiny sweet ones you'll find in most perfumes.
At the end of the day, your skin still smells like fresh musk, like clean sheets hanging in a flowergarden.

Stayingpower is excellent!!!
One week ago I wore the EDT, and sprayed it behind my ears. Today, I wear the same earrings (and didn't use For Her), and guess what... After a week those tiny earrings still have the scent!

Narciso Rodriguez For Her EDP has a much softer and easier to accept opening than the EDT(which is really really similar to Sarah Jessica Parker’s Lovely on paper). So I deceided to try the more tamed EDP version. For Her (EDP) starts with powdery soft rose, clean and somehow quite close to the ‘laundary queen’-Essence by NR.

Soon it gets sweeter in an earthy way, and then sweeter and dirtier. This reminds me a lot of Sarah Jessica Parker’s Lovely and Agent Provocateur, but easier on the skin and refined. It is definitely dirty and sexy to me. The kind of clean sweat smell made by combine light, wild rose and some other notes.

Then there’s this really weird and unexpected Guerlain Idylle kinda scent dancing around. It took me like 10 minutes, then went like : ”Idylle! That’s it.” However, in comparison with Idylle, it’s more sensual, only has a little bit of the grassy scent, with the a little bit more sweetness from a dirty sexy rose.

The dry-down is really sexy in a quite, comfy way, slightly sweet, a little bit musky and less the grassyness.

If you like something along Idylle, Lovely or AP. Narciso Rodriguez is a must try as all of them have some similarities at some point, and maybe you'll find a perfect match among these.

musk, coriander,osmanthus and orange blossom- sounds promissing, but it's not really like that. Bottles are very nice, though. It would be nicer without the rose note. It's definetly rose there, and it just doesn't work for me. It's not bad, though, a nice, polite perfume, would be ok for office, I think.

The black one smells A LOT like Coca Cola, sory to say this. and the pink one has a dreadful ALUMINIUM edge. I could swear there's aluminium in there, can smell it clearly. They're weird- but not in a bad way, they're not offensive.

Pink one (pink bottle, black box) was created in 2006. It's an EDP version. I prefer pink one, because as it's said in the description above - it's less aggressive, that high concentration of sweet, dark and animalic is more wearable for me in EDP.

EDP
___
On paper it smelled divine, and I loved the pink glass bottle! It was very heavy and piercing on my skin though, and really masculine. I suspect that the Vetiver is to blame, and also a patchouli-like woody odor. They were good smells, but I felt them very "rude" on me. I couldn't wait to wash it off

EDT
___
So, I was in a small duty free shop with not many interesting testers. I walked past the Black Narciso Rodriguez bottle and I decided to give it a try. First impression was like a powdery citrusy flower. Feminine and romantic. After a while I could smell lots of incense at the base! It turned to be really deep and lustful at the end. I would wear it only on special occasions. Very very sensual.

Comparison with SJP - Lovely
____________________________
There are similarities, especially on the top notes. However, at the drydown they are different. Lovely becomes flowery, with a hint of woody.The whole composition is light. For her dries down incensey-floral and mysterious. Very deep, not heavy though. They are 80% different perfumes to me.

Ouch!

What to say that hasn't been said already,

Modern...this is the best way to describe this perfume as others have said. It's a floral that's very modern. Absolutely gorgeous in my opinion and very very classy! The coriander gives this perfume it's special smell and gives it spark! it's lovely. :)

Sometimes it smells so real, like...actual crushed wet petals and that's hard to find in commercial perfume.

It's very pricey so..my tip is this..if you love this but can't afford it, Try out "Lovely" by Sarah Jessica Parker! They are VERY similar.

I had to have it.. needless to say, I already do :))

I SHOULD love this one: with the exception of vanilla, I usually like all of the notes listed above. Was given a scented ribbon doused in Narciso Rodriguez for Her. It's a heavenly floral/coriander/musk combination. I don't want to stop sniffing the ribbon!

However, I cannot wear the stuff. Sprayed some on, and it has turned very "yeasty" on my skin. Or: you know the way butter smells on your lips and fingertips after you've eaten buttered popcorn? You rush into the bathroom and lather up around your mouth to get rid of "it"? That's what it's like on my me.

Such a shame, really. (Maybe I should buy some and just spray it on my clothes? That way I'll still have it "around" me...Sigh.)

At first spray, this is a soft vanilla-laced floral scent with musky, powdery undertones. At drydown, the vanilla fades and the scent becomes what I would characterize as a light floral chypre - a subtle, close to the skin fragrance. A bit old-fashioned, but in a good way. This strikes me as a sheer, elegant, wear-to-the-office type of scent. While not overtly sexy, I can see how it's quiet allure could draw you in.

Typical modern fragrance. Good for office and day wearing. Well balanced: not overwhelming and doesn't smell nasty and cheap, not very sweet and not very bitter or sour. Nice, pleasant and elegant scent. Good for everyday use, but not a collection/unique/extraordinary/sign scent. I have edt and it lasts long enough.
I like it and on my skin it sounds good. I wear it to the office and when I'm tired of fragrances "with character" from my scents' collection.
The plain form of the bottle appeals to me also.
But don't I think I'll buy another bottle when mine ends.

Just purchased this after smelling it on someone. Am I glad I did!!

I don't usually like "contemporary" fragrances. I'm much more into the classic/vintage fragrances. However, this one seemed different from all the new fruity/bubblegum ones out there. This one is fabulous!! Different all the time. The drydown for me is almost a chypre - reminiscent of Coriandre with a little more floral.

The day after I got it I was standing in Starbuck's and a woman said "You smell so lovely, I could stand beside you all day and just inhale!"

That's what I have been looking for!

I really loved this at first and must admit I was regularly complimented on it (though, interestingly, almost exclusively by women as opposed to men). However, I ended up getting rather bored with it and I probably wouldn't bother with it again. It is very lovely though and extremely feminine.

This is probably one of the most heavily reviewed perfumes here, and also one of the most beautiful.
I was reluctant to purchase this, the rave and hype made me cautious, but I plunged and bought the 100ml EDT and body lotion gift set. I can see the value in the raves now and intend to add to those :D

This starts out very similarly to SJP Lovely, and when I first sprayed this fragrance I detected the striking similarity immediately and was disappointed - but only for a little while. The perfumes evolves rather differently to SJP Lovely which remains a cool mossy wood to the end, NR For Her becomes a much warmer musky scent.

The musk in this grows and envelopes the scent in a warm, sensual embrace. The osmanthus was an unusual addition, it imparts an almost brutal heady apricot scent in this, but tempered so beautifully with the sweet gentle orange blossom and vetiver adds to the woody, almost smokey quality in this scent - the 3 notes seem to work beautifully. I know bergamot is listed, but I cannot detect it other than to say it adds a slightly crisp note, and thats rather pleasing to me since I *loathe* bergamot in fragrances and can usually pick it a mile away. Coriander just a touch of spice.

The egyptian musk being a beautiful base note it endures the entire duration and development of this perfume on skin. The amber keeps it warm and sensual and the vanilla adds a creamy accord to this like few others.

Its a complicated little scent that grows slowly, I disagree with reviews indicating its pure musk, the other notes are there and are appreciated as they develop. Its phases last a considerable period of time, and I can still smell this at least 12 hours later

Its a little on the pricey side, but I must say its very worth the expense. Sillage is beautiful, longevity is amazing, and the quality of this IMHO at least is well worth the price tag. I have since purchased the EDP Cruise Set and the full sized Shower Gel as well and already know that I will definitely repurchase the EDT and its lotion which is just gorgeous when they are empty, I think I actually prefer the EDT to the EDP.

I am not overly fussed on the packaging, the 100ml bottle is difficult to use, the wide square narrow flacon isn't terribly user friendly and I have difficulty with this bottle holding and spraying. None-the-less it IS one of my absolute favourites and its a crowd pleaser - I know very few people who dont like it, men and women alike.

I had the black EDT. it is such an amazing scent (if a little expensive, but it's worth it!) I got so many compliments whilst wearing it! friends even bought a bottle because it smelt so nice on me! it's a soft, floral, powdery fragrance and lasts and lasts! my 100ml bottle lasted me forever.it does smell similar to sarah jessica parkers lovely, but it has more class to it. it's a sumptious, addictive scent.

Oh dear! I spray it on and at 31 I feel it is way too girlie, too "young-andundecided-Barbie-girl" scent. There is nothing to it. Just musk. Musk. It is so reminiscent of "Lovely" and Lovely is good on my skin as a lotion. Now I am not going to feel like I used a Johnson's baby powder on me for all day, just after shower.
It is just too simplistic,and I feel embarassed wearing this as it is quite long-lasting. I like my scent to evolve and mae its journey, but there is no journey to be made here.

I like it a lot although I don't wear it very often. The top notes are strong and it takes a while for them to fade away. Once they do its a great soft feminine smell with great sillage. I sprayed it on my arm then washed it with soap and water and I can still smell it. Wow great staying power. This review is for the EDP pink bottle.

Funny this one, first tried it two years ago and thought it was way too strong for me.
I tried it again, a week ago and fell in love!!!!!???????
It blew me away, as it was much softer this time and also elegant.
But at the same time quite unusual, which leads me to believe this perfume can be worn both day and night.
I think Aeternitas has described it just right. I couldn't have put that description better myself.

This is probably one of the few perfumes I actually finished and bought more of which says a lot. I have both EDP and EDT and love them both, but not as much as I love The Body Lotion! The body lotion is amazing, it gives an overall fragrance and I never get as many compliments if I wear just the perfume - or any other for that matter. Tried body cream as well, but not as nice. Really need to stock up on the body lotion :)

but this one is heavier and contains more woods&musk what creates a more dirrty smell to it.... And still this perfume is creamy and feminine.

I am in LOVE!! NR for Her EDT was a Valentine's gift to myself after a long search for a clear, distinct, classy, sexy, unique scent. This is IT!! It is feminine without being "girlie" or "syrupy" or candy-sweet. It opens boldly and clearly, but is not "thick" or "heavy". Once it settles, the notes, to me, begin moving in waves...it's never ONE of anything...the scent stays alive and keeps a sense of moving in and out of different layers. It does give a "veiled" feeling...a silk sheer curtain gently blowing in the breeze. It is absolutely BEAUTIFUL and absolutely WOMANLY!! I am ready to buy a 10-year supply of it!! My ONLY criticism is that the sillage does not last long enough, although my husband still smelled it. I guess I just couldn't get enough of inhaling it!!

NR EDP...This is the fragrance I've searched for. Elegant,sexy,classic. I honestly don't have words to describe it. I placed a little of FH and two other fragrances on my skin and asked the man in my life to choose. When he came to this one, I saw this "look" on his face and he said "this, definitely,without question...and ONLY this". It lingers beautifully and oozes sex appeal, warm, soft, beautiful. Without a doubt, this is my favorite,especially for romantic interludes. When I wear this, I feel like the most elegant, sensuous woman on earth. NR..thank you.

I tried EDP (pink) and EDT (black) on paper and liked the way the EDT smelled better, so it got the winning ticket to be tried on my skin. I liked it a lot!

Fresh meadow air after a rain is what it reminded me of. Fresh, moist, misty, fragrant. It is floral but in a subdued way, not a big bunch of loud flowers of the garden, but softer smelling tiny flowers of the meadow.

Two little cautious test squirts lasted on me 4 hours -- not a bad result for an EDT! Next time I will go for big wet sloppy squirts with abandon... or straight for a full bottle!

P.S. The rose of the pink one seemed harsh on paper... but I don't know what it would smell like on my skin.

Maybe i might like Musc EdP Intense or Esscence ?

It smells like a simple, rose-based, traditional soap bar and that's all. Nothing sexy about it. I agree with Jeca in that it seems like a "modern interpretation of something older". I like soapy scents, but this one doesn't suit me. It would probably be very elegant on the right person, though.

Beautiful fragrance...very sexy ,sensual,sophisticated, classy in my opinion. Unfortunately does not work with chemistry at all(almost instantly turns sour/pickle cucumber mess). I bought Agent Provocateur which is similar to NR,
and works better on me. To bad, I like this one better, its sweeter and more appropriate for daily use.

I've had the EDT for awhile and loved it (see previous review down the pile aways); I finally got the EDP and to my chagrin, it stinks on me. It smells like a balloon - you know, that rubbery smell? I don't know why, the ingredients listed aren't that different from other scents I've bought that smelled great on me, but this one ... after maybe an hour it settles down and I get a nice touch of the woods and several hours later I am left with some lingering florals, but I don't think it is worth the strong rubbery, balloon scent at the beginning. Luckily I got it from Macy's, who have a very liberal return policy. Now I just have to decide what I"m going to exchange it for ... Anyway, I'd recommend that, just because one of the concentrations works for you, that doesn't necessarily mean the other will - test it before you buy (especially at the price!!)

A sweet amber-y orange blossom with delicate floral notes, this sadly dries down so quickly to a cloying, over-sweet mess on my skin. Perhaps without the honey blossom and with more wood or vetiver it could avoid this end, but as it was, the sweetness makes the teeth ache.

I got a sample at Holt Renfrew and tried it on, it really was attracting a lot of people as I had more than 5 men comment on it on the bus ride home. I saved and bought the 100ML bottle along with the cream. I prefer the cream to the perfume itself. Overall, I wear this on special occasions...weddings, dinner parties, etc.

Really really thumbs down for this one. I read and heard good reviews on this one, and I bought a bottle without trying it out. It's like ordinary soap with dreams of royalty.

It is one of the most unucual scents you can find in perfume shops at the moment (excluding niche fragrances).

Extremely sensual.
For me also an example how different a fragrance can be on a wrist (when I fisrt tested it, seemed just very flowery), than on the rest of the body.

I have fallen with love with the EDT (EDP is quite different from it). There is something in it that simply escapes words. It makes me feel of powdery snow flakes, and it would make a perfect fragrance for the Queen of Snow, powdery, musky, and mysterious.

I have the black bottle and honestly I am captivated,the beauty of musk at its finest this perfume isn't trying to be something else it stands on its own, gentle yet sensual, mysterious yet warm, its really beautiful and one of a kind. So many people wear it though, but its so wonderful, I understand why.......
Update: Wonderful staying power. This could turn into a signature for me.. Will update later.
UPDATE: I can't leave the house without spraying this, its very addicting!
Update 2; Just ordered a bottle of the edp, will also try it out, both lovely!

Hyacinth and freesia, warm, very sensual and sexual, despite being floral; I never thought as floral perfumes being sexy, this one is. Different than anything else I have, modern, discreet, makes skin wanna get touched, caressed, loved... life like, it's got a demon of its own, a spirit that takes over the person wearing it... a perfume with personality, finally!

I find this one soothing and deep after it dries a few minutes. I spray it on before bedtime, and fall asleep under its power. I haven't decided if I'm a serious enough person to carry it off as my signature, but it's in the running.

I didn't like this one ..i was hoping to but...what ruined it for me was the opening...it was too strong and offensive smelling to me...almost a hateful smell...the middle seemed chaotic it wasn't until 30 minutes later that the dry down saved it..i really like the sensual musk of the dry down very similar to SJP lovely and Philosophys inner grace.

Prior to testing Narciso EDT I had high expectations and was prepared for celestial experience.

The first time I saw him I took a spritz on the test paper:
it was creamy, slightly sweet, mild, soft, spottless and seductive. I was attracted to it, defeated from the first smell, couldnt wait to have him.

I kept him on desk for days and sniffed even when it disapeared, because the memory was still strong and vivid.

Few days later I tested Narciso on skin ... guess what happend!

Cute and seductive guy from the paper turned to muscular, powerfull, rather intense flowery woody persona.

Well, thers still the creamy sensation present and yes, it gives enjoyable feeling while wearing, but where did that cute and gentle Narciso go?

Despite the decieving personality I find him to be catchy, alluring and foxy.
To be honest, what else can a women ask for ?

Narciso Rodriguez is BEAUTIFUL.
It's so undescribably wonderful.
I would like to be a mother one day and have my children and husband associate this scent with me.
It's a true traditional wedding scent embodying white lace gowns, baby rose bud bouquets and long soft ringlets.
Taken out of the marital context, I believe this scent suits any soft spoken, doe eyed, compassionate female.
I'm sad that I can't afford it right now and hope that it's still in production when I finish Uni and settle down into life as a young lady.

Narciso Rodriguez is one of the scents that became signature scent for me (not easy!) a few years ago when it was put on market in Italy. Little I knew about NR, I just saw a stand with this unusual black bottle, straight almost formal yet very intriguing and shiny. Just a spray and... I fell in love! It was so mellow musky, good musk not the crappy white musks of this world. Apparently this contains Egyptian Musk, not the white one and it's among the few musk-dominated scents I can wear.
Orange flowers come out very intensely since the beginning and they are so dreamy! I don't smell other flowers but orange flowers. I love the amber-vanilla edge and the special creaminess of the EdT altogether. That mellow warm creaminess is the special part of the scent. EdT has it, EdP doesn't. Lucky enough, teh vetiver gives just a hint of masculin edge without overpowering the whole blend. Very new and powerful, sweet not cloying, intense and delicate at the same time. It's a sexy elegant and modern scent. Now it's a little bit over abused and over-smelled around. I still wear it when I'm in the period of the month like it. All body products smells divine. EdT layered with the Musc oil (again Egyptian not white!) is heaven, but it's soooooooo expensive!!
I don't like the EdP version because it's very harsh with a strange pungent rose note that reminds me of Agent Provocateur and smells sweaty.

Well... When I had prove this perfume (EDP), I was crazy about it, and didn´t get calm until I buy it. And now, I even put this once. I used all my sample, and that´s it. I don´t Know if is the heat of Spain, but can´t wear this anymore whitout getting a big headache. I´ll wait for the autunm. Maybe then it will fit me better.

This Narciso Rodriguez for her EdP stands out from the crowd. I think the creator intended and succeeded to make the after-bath sensation last. I couldn't identify a flower or a specific ingredient, just the cleaness and freshness a lady has in her towel, with her skin and hair wet, stepping on the marble of a bathroom with a view to a veranda. That's why this perfume is considered so sexy, because it reproduces the generic mixed scents of bath products. What could it be? Maybe the musk is the heart of this cosmetic festin. I can imagine also powdered peony. And the bottle is also unique and very attractive, like icecream.

Reviewing the Edp now and This imo is so much better. At least it's not so busy/scatter brained. It's a beautiful rose/floral musk that would be perfect to wear daily.. Though now that I have tried all of them My absolute fav is the musc oil.. too bad it's so expensive:)...

I thought it was only my impression and reaction...some top floral notes..and then absence-void of scent-loss of all sensation! I too, had this experience. I re-applied and then the perfume gained some strength; still the perfume was too soft...then I applied again...15 minutes later arriving to work, I recieved many compliments. The perfume and sillage had developed so silently! I appologized for making it too strong, and everyone said "no no, itś wonderful". I really enjoyed the pureness of the floral, the touch of spiciness by the coriander and all the notes that create the deep, sensual, and sultry, heady, mature style of this perfume. I cannot pin-point just one facet of this perfume that is my favorite- because I liked all the fine details, and the entire composition as a whole! Easily, one mistake of notes could have made this perfume too heavy and suffocating; itś just perfect-the sillage and notes convey an essence of lightness, while at the same time being pronounced and sexy. I also enjoyed Narciso Rodriguez because it uses so many of my preferred notes, wich usually are hidden in the base- here are in the main focus, all together, all in one bottle.

I never tried it before, but heard a lots of good things about this perfume. What is this wonder, I mused, that everyone is talking about? Will it be my next obsession fragrance?
I got a sample from a friend of mine, and it is nothing that I expected.At first spray, there was a slight flowery accord - and then, NOTHING.It felt like it completely dissolved itself into mu skin...Surprised, I sprayed it again.This time, it was coriander and musk, with a little bit of unidentified flowers - a mix of freshness and something musty, reminded me of a dressing room in a theater.
As the fragrance began to unfold, I understood why some reviews I heard about it positioned this scent as the sexiest. It definitely has something indecent about it, may be a mix of musk and amber that gives out the impression of sweaty skin...(There are several perfumes that do it to me).There is also something very medicinal about it, like herbal tincture, St John`s Wort herb, bitter roots and alcohol...
Anyway - when I got to the base, it became almost masculine due to a lots of vetiver.
One must try it on before buying it!

Narciso is a gorgeous fragrance! Adorable and so sexy! A bit aggressive at first, sensual and seductive later, makes you close your eyes...it finishes with calm, low notes. This fragrance is 100% of pleasure from the first seconds to the very end. Love it!

P.S. reminds me Agent Provocateur.

I got a small sample to test. I swear when i put it on i smelled rose, although it isn't listed, followed by some beautiful white florals i couldn't identify. It was lovely and feminine, although not something i'd buy.

Unfortunately on dry down, on me it smells of lovely flowers and foam rubber :-(

I’m a big fan of NR for her. I have several editions of For her-EDP, EDT, and limited editions in a mirror bottle and in a gift set with candles.
It wasn’t a love at first sniff at all. When my mom bought it in 2004, I totally hated it! I used Lancome Miracle as my signature scent at that time, and for my nose For Her was terribly heavy and old fashioned. I almost forgot about NR For Her and in 2005 I had a perfumemaniac conversation with my friend, and we had an argument on NR For Her. My friend said that its great on the other hand I was sure that its horrible. So I had to get a sample of it and test it thoroughly. I must confess-I loved it! Thank you my dear friend Leka, because of you I found my favorite perfume))

What can I say about it now?
Its definitely a love or hate perfume!
For me NR For her is weightless, almost fairy scent! Its so light and tender but at the same time it has a distinctive character. its not a perfume for good girls, its for a “good girl gone bad” story. Its a perfume for a women who know what they want and know how to get it
I personally like EDT better, its stronger and more vivid. EDP is great for summers, ‘cos it doesn’t disturb your senses. I didn’t figure it out about the Limited editions yet. Yes, mirror bottle sounds different but I can’t tell what exactly is different, more citrusy probably. In both EDP and EDT I love musky notes, and how they are combined with florals, on my skin I have almost no woody notes.

I would definitely recommend this perfume at least for test, to everybody. Its an all year round perfume, its modern with slight vintage atmosphere in it. If you like teenage scents it probably would seem too heavy and old-fashioned for the first time, as it happened with me. Now when I use several perfumes from the Serge Lutens line(which are pretty strong, oriental and spicy) I must say NR For Her seems much lighter and girlie.

I tried EDP.
It reminds me of field in late spring!
At the beginning it was quite light, then it grew stronger. It's not intense, but very solid and might induce headache to someone. I'd like to wear it in fall season most likely, because it's warm and comforting. For me, it's not what I expected. I expected it to be sexy on me, but it's just nice on me :D.
Also I saw there the same bottles, but with 'musc' written on them and fragrance in silver bottle.

I love the EDP of this perfume! I still love it since introduced to it about 2 years ago, which is extrodianary for me given how often I change my mind with perfume.. When you wear it, it just gives you a confidence boost.. The only word of caution is that it is not a summer fragrance- even in mild heat it can become a little too suffocating, especially in restrictive areas...

Casting the dissenting note, I do not like this at all. It begins just as lovely and sexy as everyone describes, but dries quickly to a oversweet ambery orange-blossom that cloys and clings. My skin and it do not agree and I end up scrubbing what I can only describe as a heavy and suffocatingly sweet fragrance.

Softly sweet, warm, sexy and just divine! When I first tried Narciso edt, it was unlike any musk I've smelt and I was intrigued. I couldn't pick any of the the notes at all, just that it smelt sexy sweet. As I browsed around the shops, it was floating about me, now transformed into warm sexy skin, yet softly sweet and comforting. Kind of in the realm of DreamEsscents Musc/Jovan Musk, in that warm sexy skin way, yet not like them at all. Feminine too, without being flowery. After that, I was pretty much in love and bought it two days later. Now that I know the notes, I can kind of sniff them out... At first spray I think can smell sweet orange blossom, honeyed musk with maybe a hint of vanilla, but it's not overtly any of those things, it's blended so harmoniously. The amber, vetiver and woods come out on the drydown and meld beautifully with the other notes, but again, I can't sniff any of these singularly and I was really surprised to see vetiver in there at all – it must be the softest versions of all these notes. The Egyptian Musk too, is not like any other EM I've smelt, it doesn't have the earthy herbal spice that they normally have at all. As for lasting power, it goes for about 3 hours or me and seems to soften quite a lot after ½ an hour, and while sometimes I can't smell it, the sillage must be fantastic. I've had a couple of comments that people can smell this gorgeous smell and they were a couple of metres away. And sometimes I'll turn my head, get a whiff, and ooooh. Gets the 'Mmmmm' reaction from the man too.

PS: As I saw mentioned on MUA a while back, Cetaphil cream really does help Narciso last longer.

Tested both the EDP and the EDT, both stunning. The EDP seems to have a rose type note in it making it sweeter than the EDT. Surprisingly the EDP has gone a bit "Kate Moss" on me. I like Kate and I like this. I am keen on the EDP, so if I could have only one bottle I would pick the pink bottled scrumptious gorgeousness of the EDP over the EDT.

This review is for the EDT in the black bottle...

Wow!! I think this is pure sex in a bottle. At least it is for me! Beautiful, lusty, ambery musk at first...and then a sweet floral dry-down that teases and teases.

During the first two hours of wearing this, it occurred to me that it smelled how I wanted a masculine cologne to smell on a woman. I realize that doesn't make much sense...but...I have a fascination with cologne and sometimes I think I have found the perfect masculine scent for me, and then, oh no, I find something about it I can't stand. The top and heart of this fragrance made me think about this because of its beautiful musk accord.

Beyond that, it does have a very unique floral dry-down, which is very interesting, as most perfumes are vice-versa. I'm not big into strong florals, but NR's trail suited me just fine...even wearing a suit today! It made me feel feminine, confident, AND sexy.

Lasted almost ten hours, too, which is very impressive in my book. Now I see what all the hype was about! :)

This review is for the EDT, (black bottle) I have not tried the EDP.
The first sniff of Narciso for Her was very "in your face" with a grandmother type smell, but after the drydown, the sharp floral notes assert themselves and it becomes very different. (Yay!!) I have tried this one on many different occasions, and am still trying to see if this suits me.
I am reminded of an older fashioned but still very sexy couture dress, classic with silks and chiffon... Walking into a ballroom for everyone to turn and ask "who is that woman?" mysterious and sexy at the same time. Not for the shy, this fragrance.
A very complicated and delightfully floral musk, it has a note that makes you want to keep sniffing your wrist to figure it out.
I do not like Lovely at all, on my skin, so I do not smell the similarities that so many have written about.

NR makes every woman special -it'll definitely make your day as people will take note of you especially when this scent leaves a very good lingering scent in the air wherever you go...so be careful! It can also backfire if you're doing naughty things and if you're the only one in the office wearing it!:P

Lovely, smells exactly alike except it is not as rich and opulent. Lovely is like a 90% copy with red berry notes added to give more freshness and younger feel. But it loses out greatly on the rich velvety and sensual feel of NR.

I would strongly recommend ladies to wear NR instead of Lovely. You wouldn't regret it!

No man can resist a NR Woman!

I have the EDT and want the EDP - I love this fragrance which, on me, is soft with the honey notes accented. my husband dislikes it, calling it "granma perfume," but I just adore the way this smells on my skin - soft, warm, floral and flirty - like a summer day in a forest, with bees droning around to the flowers and the sun shining on it all.

Sharp, woodsy, musky, animalic. Cannot detect any flower notes in it (EDT version) and I find it quite masculine. But how I feel when I wear it? Well it feels sexy.. It is very different than the other perfumes in the market, and although I was thinking that I cannot be comfortable with this sharp smell, no, it is very close to skin and it feels good. Thinking that EDP version could be better for me as it looks like more flowery..

I don't know why but this fragance, Narciso Rodriguez EDT, which should be perfect for me according to its notes (I love musk), does not manage to smell like "me".
It's a lovely, femenine, sensual, musky, skin scent, just a bit sweet, and I wish I could love it and buy it, but there's something that makes me think I won't be totally comfortable wearing it.
I'll keep trying!

edt is soft and melting on my skin, putting there the feeling it is my own scent. strong orange blosom in the beginning then wither to meet the most gorgeous and heavenly musk in this world! the person from whom i have my first bottle used to say this scent keeps light in it as well as hides some dim thoughts. this is the scent of lust, but not romance. smelling it i imagine night in the big city, taxis, streets in the vasts of unwelcomeness and confussion.. and this scent stands there as an island, as a bridge to secret hidden worlds, softly whispering,encouriging .. like a drums' thud in the jungle of buildings. it reminds me of the way the cigarette smoke is dancing in the air.
longlsting and with character, hard to forget.
edp is definitely more agressive, sharp. i feel some woodynotes in there. no vanilla, but instead kind of a plastic feeling. anyway i can also catch lilac ..but only sometimes.

Ahhh...NR, how I love you! This is by far my favorite perfume for fall/winter/night. It is so beautiful and musky. The deepness of it lures me right in. This is one of those fragrances that when you wear it, you will be constantly be sniffing your wrists. An absolutely amazing, musky scent.

Floral. Sharp. Bright. Floral. I don't smell the musk. I just smell flowers. Piercingly floral from the moment I sprayed it on, until now, still florally over 9 hours later. It's probably a great choice for someone who likes florals. Because, it's a floral.

Thankfully, it's flowers I like. Not oily tuberose. Not oily ylang-ylang. More like frangipani, or champaca, or really, really strong magnolia. Or peony. Sharp flowers. If I *had* to wear a floral, I might wear this.

This is a very feminine scent, delicate but simultaneously powerful. Very well done. I am saving up to buy this one. Whenever I'm at the department store, I always swing by and spritz one of their nice ribbons... and then walk around sniffing for the rest of the day. I read somewhere that Lovely by Sarah Jessica Parker smells very similar to this. In a way it does... but it doesn't cut it - it's way cheaper and it smells like it. Lovely is like the ugly cousin who asks you to the prom and you end up hating your parents for forcing you to go. Narcisco Rodriguez is like going to the prom stag with your friends because you don't need a date to have fun and feel beautiful.

I have worn this perfume for quite a while, and have only grown to love it more. I have always gotten compliments when I wear it. To me the perfume has a sort of "masquarade" scent to it. A seductive, lustful sent veiling a pure...almost free aroma. I find I don't even like to leave the house without applying it....it's rather addictive and comforting!:D

I love this perfume, i first had the EDT and then the EDP because i want it to last as long as poss. The EDP is slightly different to the EDT but both are really nice. When i wear it i always get compliments off strangers regarding my perfume and i like it when that happens.

I also love this scent! It is very sexy, seductive and very feminine. It is way much better then "for him" version of this scent.

I like it, it reminds me of those little Barbie perfumes you used to get when u bought a Barbie. So it really reminds me of my childhood, and I'm quite nostalgic :p

This smells exactly like my grandma's cedar chest. On my skin it smells like fresh cedar with a faint touch of citrusy mothballs (yes mothballs!). I don't believe this is really heady or strong enough to be a real vampy seducing scent. When NR dries down, it lies very close to the skin with little to no sillage. I wouldn't repurchase this, but it is interesting.

I adore it, I just think it doesn't last as much as I want (I have EDP). I think that the most valuable ingrediant here which give that special scent is -the musk.
Few months ago, I was in Paris - in Sephora, and one lady stood in the front of the desk with this perfume and she put the whole bottle on her as long as the bottle was full. She put this perfume on her neck, hair, dress, hat, and once more, and once more.....it was really strange....she was like in kind of trance - and we looked at here around with no interruption... Strange sceene.

Yes, it is unusual, a modern interpretation of something very old ;o) Rose and musk, dark and sensual.

Really nice, I can't quite describe it. It's beautiful, flowery, and intense in feminine feel. It also lasts a very long time from the moment you spray it on. Something about it is very innocent, but at the same time implies lust to me... very cool perfume!
