Estée Lauder Pleasures For Women Review - The Little Pleasures of Life, and the Sweetest Pleasure of All
This is a sweet fragrance from the popular makeup brand; Estee Lauder. The name is self-explanatory—it's like a feminine version of Old Spice. It has a nice clean smell with slight undertones of citrus. Some people may find it too floral, but if you're a fan of fruity scents, then this one might appeal to you more than others. As the name suggests, it's meant to enhance your pleasure of life.
What Does Estée Lauder Pleasures For Women Smell Like
The top notes are Green Notes, Freesia, Pink Pepper, Violet, Violet Leaf, Tuberose and Red Berries; middle notes are Lily-of-the-Valley, Peony, Lilac, Lily, Rose, Jasmine, Geranium and Karo Karounde; base notes are Musk, Cedar, Sandalwood, and Patchouli. When sprayed on skin, the scent is described as having an exotic aroma of flowers mixed with spices—it's a unique smell that some like while others dislike.
Pleasures for Woman has a moderate to high projection, lasting up to 6 hours. Since the perfume is intended to be used throughout the day and evening, this isn't a problem. However, if you have a sensitive nose, you might not appreciate the overpowering scent of the perfume.
In addition to being long-lasting, it doesn't require much time to build upon; just two sprays is usually enough to keep you smelling pleasantly fresh all day. If you don't want to wear too much perfume (which could cause irritation), you should consider this one.
Also note that it is best suited for warm weather use. If you live somewhere cold or dry, this scent probably won't last quite as long before fading away. That said, it still lasts a respectable amount of time—about 5 hours on me without reapplication. The scent itself lingers after you've finished applying it, though.
This means that even if the initial blast wears off, you'll still be left with something pleasant on your skin. On hotter days, this scent tends to dissipate quickly; however, it stays on for longer during cooler weather. Even in drizzling rain, it lasted until about 10 minutes later. If you plan on wearing this in wet conditions, then you might want to apply more than usual to compensate.
When To Wear Estée Lauder Pleasures For Women
If you like fruity scents but don't want them too strong, then this is the perfect one for you. It's also suitable for daytime wear because of its subtlety. It's not too sweet or floral either, making it a safe bet for most people.
If you're not too picky about perfumes, then you'll likely enjoy this one; especially since it's reasonably priced compared to other brands. Of course, if you prefer stronger scents, then you might want to look elsewhere—this one is fairly mild by comparison.
If you like fruity scents and need a little help getting rid of pesky odors from your armpits or feet, then this is a great option. If you're going to be around people who aren't fans of the perfume's smell, then this might not be your best choice.
If so, you'd be better served buying something else. However, if you want a nice scent that won't overwhelm anyone nearby, then this is the one for you. If you're looking for something to wear to a party or date night, then this is a good option.
