Bamboo by Franck Olivier | Fragrance Outlet

It's no secret to my friends, I'm a perfume fiend and I'm not afraid to admit it. One of these days I will do a perfume collection post, but it's going to take some time to write up because this girl owns a LOT of perfumes. What I'm getting at is that I couldn't resist the opportunity to try out a new perfume (new to me, at least) when given the chance - and thanks to Fragrance Outlet,  Bamboo by Franck Olivier is now part of my collection. 

For those of you unfamiliar with Fragrance Outlet, it claims to be one of the nation's largest retailers of genuine fragrances. They carry brands like DKNY, Michael Kors, Coach, and Vera Wang just to name a few. They also claim to carry fragrances at a cost lower than department stores. However, that's not true considering they are selling Bamboo for $89 but you can find it all over the internet and at Sears for a measly $40. Do your research before you buy, people! 

Bamboo is not a scent that I would typically pick up for myself, as I tend towards warmer, more sultry perfumes but if you're a lover of fresh, crisp scents this is going to be right up your alley. 

The bottle is  thick sturdy glass with a cool bamboo imprint on the back side. My only gripe is that the silver lining on top is cheap plastic. I don't appreciate tacky packaging for perfumes over $40. 

There's a lot going on in this perfume, scent-wise. It's characterized as a woody floral scent. It has top notes of ivy, violet and black currant with base notes of vetiver, cedar and musk. This combo sounds disgusting, but it's actually really pleasant. There's no better way to describe Bamboo other than fresh. 

This perfume is a perfect spring and summer scent. If you're in to fragrances like Burberry Brit or Marc Jacobs Daisy, I think you'll really enjoy Bamboo, too. 

What's your favorite fresh scent? Let me know in the comments below!
