To be honest, I don't really like perfumes. I don't know why but most of the time, perfumes bizarrely give me headaches. And I often find the fragrances too heavy and overwhelming...
You can probably guess that walking past perfume booths is not my favourite thing to do. All the fragrances would invade my nose in a rush and the next time I know, my head is pounding. Talk about sensory overload :/
Then Anna Sui's Flight of Fancy perfume came into my life.
It was a birthday gift from a friend. At first, I was a wee bit skeptical as my mindset was currently set to "Perfumes = Unwanted headaches". So I braced myself and gave its fragrance a tentative sniff.
The first thing that came into my mind was "holy sh*t!" Ahem...do excuse the language because I was really, really surprised. NO headache! What's more, I even liked the fragrance! It smelt soooo fresh and citrus-sy.
The packaging itself is extremely attractive. I particularly love the intricate floral designs and the pretty peacock. Okay, okay, I love the whole thing! Inside, the perfume was placed in a glam pink box.
I practically swooned at how GORGEOUS it was! The bottle just screams elegance. The top of the perfume is in the form of a transparent peacock with its fully displayed tail. Once again, there are detailed floral designs on the bottle. Aren't the colors iridescent? Look at the pinkish and golden hues of it *sighs* I'm so gonna keep the bottle when it finishes =D
Its fragrance is an exotic blend of Litchi, Yuzu and Java Lemon, sprinkled with Purple Rain Freesia, Rose Blossom and Amber Crystals. It also has tints of White Woods and Skin musk. All together, they provide a nice citrus and floral scent.
I must say that this perfume is absolutely wonderful. Its fragrance is not too heavy, just nice to me in fact. It is best worn in the day. I usually spritz it on my wrists and neck area. Perfume works best when applied to your pulse points.
Needless to say, this is my only and favorite perfume :)
