Cheap and Chic by Moschino
What Does Cheap and Chic Smell Like
Cheap and Chic by Moschino for women opens with a citrusy spark from yuzu and bergamot, followed by a discreet aromatic whisper of petitgrain and rosewood. This crisp, zesty opening quickly transitions into a floral heart dominated by a symphony of various flowers. The middle notes are a floral cocktail where the queenly freesia and tender peony steal the show with their elegant, honey-like sweetness. The cool, watery scent of cyclamen, the intoxicating Egyptian jasmine, and demure violet add depth to this floral medley, while the subtle hint of dog rose tickles the senses.
As the floral heart fades, the perfume reveals an earthy, woody base. Here, the musk serves as a soft, comforting blanket, wrapping all the scents together. The creamy sandalwood and tonka bean add a touch of warmth and depth, while the grassy freshness of vetiver keeps the scent grounded. The mix of ambergris, iris, vanilla, and white orchid gives a hint of exotic sweetness at the backdrop. Cheap and Chic offers a scent journey, starting light and citrusy, transitioning into a blooming floral bouquet, finally settling into a rich, earthy base.
Review of Cheap and Chic
Cheap and Chic by Moschino is not your typical women's perfume. Since its launch in 1995, it's been a dainty addition to any collection. In the oversaturated world of fragrances, it manages to carve out a slot for itself through its interesting mix of floral and fresh accents, with a dash of spice dancing in the background. The scent brings to mind the vibrant blooms of spring, making it an excellent pick for this season. However, it doesn't limit itself to warmer weather, also lending a breath of freshness in the fall, when the world is awash with gold.
The perfume does best when worn during the day, and its light, airy nature makes it apt for leisurely outings and casual business meetings. However, it may not be the ideal choice for a night out, as it lacks the intensity and longevity some might prefer in evening settings.
The top notes of yuzu and bergamot give the perfume a citrusy kick, making it smell youthful and energetic. That said, the more mature audience might appreciate the underlying woody and powdery notes that lend a touch of sophistication. The perfume does lean towards a synthetic scent, which might not be everyone's cup of tea.
Despite this, Moschino's Cheap and Chic offers good value for its price. It's a fragrance designed for the woman who appreciates a fresh, floral scent with a twist. If you're one to shy away from overly sweet or intense perfumes, this could be a worthy addition to your collection.
