Getting Sweet…and REALLY Sweet with Jeanne Lanvin Couture Perfume

Undress Me!
Strong-willed and determined, Jeanne Couture has no intention of lowering her eyes. Shot in black and white, the muse is clothed only in her perfume bottle, whose bow she starts to untie. A makeup-free complexion of virginal purity that goes with an intensely seductive look and a deliberately colorful perfume.

Jeanne Lanvin Couture

Top Notes: Raspberry, Violet Leaf, Water
Middle Notes: Magnolia, Peony
Base Notes : Musk, Cedar

Jeanne Lanvin Couture is the new version of Jeanne Lanvin in 2008. With a cloth label of ‘Jeanne Lanvin’ and a dainty bow around its neck, it’s definitely a sweet looking bottle itself. Simple design, yet stands out in the midst of bottles.

At one glance, it immediately reminded me of Lancome Tresor Midnight Rose with the purple bottle in gradient. True enough, both perfumes even share similar notes – raspberry, peony and musk.

Targeting at a younger crowd, the scent is fruity and sweet, and very sweet. I am not sure if I get the scent of magnolia and peony, but the raspberry muskiness does linger around for quite a while.

Overall Thoughts:

Lanvin Couture

Lanvin has always portrayed an image of mature women to me but it went young this time!

It’s actually quite disappointing that this perfume is too sweet for my liking. I do love sweet fruity perfume, but unfortunately this perfume dries down to nothing other than musky sweetness. Nonetheless, if I would still pick this over a musky or woody perfume.

It can be cloyingly sweet if you over spritz, the trick is…spritz gently on 2 spots (arms & pants) and it can last you for a while for the ‘it’s there…but it’s not there’ scent.

If you had a sniff of this…let me know what you think!

Availability: July 2012 onwards

I think this will be too sweet for my tastes too. Such a shame, the bottle is so pretty!
