Victoria's Secret Seduction- Dark Orchid

Victoria's Secret has been  a little inspired it seems by the whole 50 Shades.. phenomenon.  Their new scent for fall and holiday gifting is Victoria's Secret Seduction - Dark Orchid.

Victoria's Secret describes it  as being all about sexy decadence and that the wearer is  a glamorous provocateur  .

But what does it smell like, I bet you really want to know ? It's quite pretty and begins with plummy notes of cassis and plum  with a little citrus from bergamot and yuzu.  It then works it's way to being a light, woodsy warm amber with oud, tonka and cashmere woods along  with some dewy florals  including Midnight Orchid,  as well as a good dose of musks.

The Oud note here is not strong nor too smoky. It's just adds a hint of depth . I find this  well put together and  while I wouldn't have minded a bit more smoke , I think it will appeal to many.

The packaging here is the nicest they've done since the Parfums Intime line , in my opinion. Right off,  the box is beautiful with the colors and even the font text appealing. You then find the deep plum glass  bottle  tucked into a slot.

This is  to be the first in a series I believe , as it's called their first "Seduction" and the box is labeled No.1 .
