Today is Sunday but I’m writing now for tomorrow because I have a very busy week ahead. If you love perfumes like I do, keep reading to know how I feel about the Lanvin Marry Me perfume.
I got this fragrance back in 2014 from an impulse purchase in the mall. The cute packaging lured me and its name “Marry Me!” is just too bridal and feminine to pass up.
The price was around 3,500~ PHP and I remember being obsessed by it from the first whiff.
Lanvin Marry Me Perfume Review by Amanda of Filipinow
Currently, I’m still in love with the packaging. Even after 4 years have passed, the metal cap isn’t unsightly yet. Nozzle also still works like I just bought the perfume yesterday.
Sticker is a bit smudged but its very understandable after such a long time.
Stop shooting for the stars Mary!
Let’s head on to the more important part of this review…
I’ve always thought that I had good judgment in life after turning 21. However, I’m starting to think that I was a bit dumb back then as I kept falling for looks (with both men and shopping lol).
I’m not trying to imply that the Lanvin Marry Me perfume is a bad product. It’s just too nauseating for me; not because the perfume is old because it still smells the same. It’s due to the scent alone.
I sprayed it on my wrist about 15 minutes earlier and I’m already having a headache.
Fragrance has a VERY strong citrus and floral blend which is unappealing.
When I was younger, I really loved over-the-top scents which made me smell like a baby prostitute but now… for the price of more than 70 USD, I should be smelling like a dignified woman.
Notes include jasmine, bitter orange, and freesia… rolled into something that can be used like a chemical weapon lol.
Fragrance lingers for more than 6 hours and its sillage is very strong.
The smell seems good to be used for daytime but the strength screams night time.
Let it be known that it is of EDP quality judging from the longevity and sillage. If you’ll see a low score from the “Scent” section, it’s of personal preference and should not dictate on whether or not you should buy the Lanvin Marry Me perfume.
Looking at the bright side, perfumes have testers so you could try one for yourself and know if this is “the one” you should commit to.
Personally, I’m filing a divorce from this one.
I’d rather be with something weaker and less luxurious than something strong and rich yet gives me immense headaches.
