We're Going Down Town♥

Is it really Christmas if you don't receive at least one perfume, or aftershave? This year I received the Calvin Klein Downtown perfume from my aunt. I hadn't actually heard of this perfume before, but I knew it would smell beautiful because I simply adore Klein's perfumes. I had no idea what it smelt like, or what the bottle looked like, but it's fair to say, it didn't disappoint.

The bottle appears to be quite round, and it is 90ml. I like the simplicity and how basic the aesthetics are. Personally, I don't keep my bottles in their boxes, instead I like to display my perfumes on the shelf, and this is one you wouldn't want to keep in it's box for sure! It's minimalistic style looks beautiful but overall, has an effective finish.

 Now for the exciting part; the scent itself. I absolutely love fruity perfumes, and this one is right up my alley. Not only is it fruity, but also fresh and quite sharp too, but this combination works surprisingly well. It is blended with top notes of bergamot, green pear and watery plum, heart notes of pink peppercorn, violet leaf and gardenia petals and base notes of vetiver and musk. I have owned numerous perfumes which are fruity, and believe me, this one is completely different, rather unique I must admit. 

If fruity perfumes are your thing, then I recommend giving this perfume a whirl. I don't see how you could dislike it though, it has so much to offer. Although it is strong and fruity, it isn't too overwhelming or overpowering to wear on a daily basis. For staying power, it lasts a good few hours before it begins to fade, but who can complain really? Not me.

Have you ever tried this perfume before?
