The Perfume I Don't Want To Finish♥

Not often do I genuinely not want to finish a perfume. It's a rare occasion when I do eventually finish perfume, because I own quite a few and takes me some time to get through them. When I'm at the end of a perfume, I use it continuously to finish it, however, this perfume is an exception - I don't really want to finish it, just yet.

I remember going into Boots and smelling this. I instantly wanted it, but it came with quite a price tag. That was during January 2012, fast forward almost a year until Christmas of 2012 when I received this gorgeous perfume. Fair to say I was delighted to unwrap the paper and see Diesel Loverdose Eau De Parfum.


Surprisingly, it wasn't the packaging that I wanted the perfume for - a first! The purple, glass, heart-shaped bottle is very girly and feminine nonetheless. I keep this in the box it came in though, but if I had a makeup set up, I would most certainly keep this on display! It comes in three different sizes; 30ml, 50ml (which I have) and 75ml. The actual perfume itself? Let me begin..


Looking at the perfume bottle, you would except it to be deep, dark and quite mysterious. In fact, it's pretty much the opposite. It has notes of various fruits making it fruity, and is sweet yet not too sickly sweet. It's almost floral too. 

Top notes: Mandarin, Star Anise.
Heart notes: Vanilla, Gardenia, Jasmine.
Base notes: Liquorice Liqueur, Woods, Amber.

The staying power of this perfume is incredible. I can spray it at 9am and still smell it around 6pm. I spray it twice on my neck and once on my wrists. It's meant for you to feel bold, strong and confident.

I've owned this for around 2/3 years and the smell is still as strong and beautiful as when I got it. With perfumes, they can easily loose their scent but this one hasn't, which makes me love it even more. 

Why don't I want to finish it?

Simple - I just love it. It was one of my first designer perfumes, it's gorgeous and the staying power is fantastic. I would 100% recommend this and repurchase it!

Loverdose is available from all perfume stockists. 

Have you tried Loverdose? If so, what do you think of it?

  6. I've actually never smelled this, but I will have to see if I can check it out. I know what you mean about finishing a perfume, a lot of the time I want to finish it because I have my eye set on something else! There aren't many that I go back to because scent is so connected to memory and I almost feel like perfumes are a bit like chapters in my life. :)

  9. I have a perfume that I didn't wanted to finish but I did was the Britney Spears perfume (it in big crystal w/ green liquid which is hard to fine!) but I did because after 2 yrs the perfume starts to "break down"! I have not tried this perfume but sounds like something that I would try!

  10. This sounds like a gorgeous perfume! I've only ever used up two perfumes & loved them both. I tried to keep hold of them for as long as possible too when they started getting low. I'm hoping my husband will repurchase one of them for me for Christmas, as it was him who bought it for me! Xx

  11. I have not tried this specific perfume before, but I do the same thing with ones I really like. I save those extra special ones for special occasions just so they last longer. I had one several years ago, very expensive..and I loved it so much, I used it every single day and went through it wayyy too fast! I still never got a replacement bottle because that was a gift and I don't spend $80 a bottle on myself lol. Cute post!

  24. I don't think I've ever finished a full bottle of perfume in my life. Sample vials, yes. Miniature bottles, yes. But a full-size? That sounds like a lifetime accomplishment for me! I generally just wear a body splash for every day, and only put on a perfume when I'm going out, so my collection will basically last me a lifetime.

  25. I rarely finish perfume too, but if I do it must have been something very dear to my heart that I will most likely repurchase.

  35. The bottle is pretty, I never would have though that to be a fruity smell by looking at it. And I feel you on the not wanting to finish it, I've had the same perfume I've been using daily for two years now, and it's almost gone. I have no idea what I'm going to do when it's done haha!
