Outrageous by Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
What Does Outrageous Smell Like
Outrageous by Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle opens with a lively scent where crunchy green apple dominates, combined with the tangy notes of grapefruit and a hint of mint. There's also a slight touch of cinnamon and lime, but they are more in the background and not very noticeable. As the perfume begins to develop, the citrusy sharpness softens, revealing a heart characterized by a blend of sweet and citrusy orange blossom and lighter, almost greenish notes of neroli. This middle phase is less fruity and more floral compared to the beginning.
As the fragrance settles down, it transforms once again. The base is dominated by a strong synthetic note of ambroxan that is quite noticeable and gives a modern, slightly metallic touch to the composition, accompanied by a clean musk that brings a soft, skin-like nuance. There's also a distinctive note of aldehydes, which adds a crisp, almost soapy facet. Lastly, there is cedar, but it appears more as a whisper than a clear note in the mix. Altogether, Outrageous contrasts fresh, fruity and floral elements with an edgier, synthetic base.
Review of Outrageous
Outrageous by Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is a bold exploration of scent that will undoubtedly leave a lasting impression. Defying the ordinary, this perfume is a masterful blend of fresh, floral, and citrus tones, making it a vibrant choice for the modern woman. Its main allure lies in its daring mixing of synthetic and fruity notes, resulting in a scent that is both invigorating and playful.
While the top notes of green apple and grapefruit give Outrageous an initial burst of freshness, it's the subtle hint of mint that sets it apart from other fragrances. It doesn't shy away from its synthetic persona, as seen with its audacious use of ambroxan and aldehydes in the base notes. This perfume doesn't just blend into the background; it demands attention.
Ideal for the warmer months, Outrageous truly shines in the summer and spring, perfectly capturing the spirit of these sunny seasons. It's versatile enough to wear during a leisurely day out or at a laid-back business meeting. However, its longevity may not carry you through an evening event, which is something to bear in mind.
Outrageous by Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle is for those who live life on their own terms, unafraid to stand out and make a statement. It's a perfume that dares you to be different.
However, its boldness may not resonate with everyone, and the sweet undertone might be too understated for the lovers of traditionally sweet fragrances. It's not a scent that follows the crowd, and it's not for the faint-hearted. It's a perfume that's as outrageous as its name suggests.
