Smell elegant with Monsoon Rose Gold - Review

I was kindly sent this Monsoon Rose Gold Eau de Parfum, and I couldn't wait to try it out.

Can we take a moment first to discuss and appreciate this stunning packaging?


It comes in this stunning, simplistic yet elegant white box with metallic rose gold embossed detail. It makes for the perfect Instagram photo and I have to say and would look good on anyone's vanity table. The bottle is a simple teardrop shape and the perfume colour is a pretty muted rose shade to fit in with the rose gold theme.


The scent itself isn't usually what I go for. It's certainly not sweet, but it is sophisticated.  It's a strong floral scent with a slightly fruity undertone. After smelling a perfume I always have to check the website to see if I got it right. The description on Monsoon is "Top notes of sparkling lemon, soft fruit and ozonic scents are layered with velvety rose, tuberose, neroli and cyclamen, and underpinned with base notes of Eastern woods, vanilla, mosses, musk and balsamic amber." It sounds extremely luxurious, right? 

The scent is very strong like I said, so you only need one spritz, and it was definitely long lasting. I wore it to an event recently and got compliments on it, asking what I was wearing. If you usually go for extremely "teen-like" scents (I'm sure you know which ones I mean) then this is perhaps not for you but if you like to smell graceful and stylish, then I would give this a try. 


It retails at the moment at £35.00 for a 100ml bottle, which I think for that size of perfume is a great price. It would be a brilliant gift for a friend or family member who is as obsessed with rose gold as I am.
