A perfume angel sent me this from NYC. I am as flabbergasted as you are. I thought, “What better way to celebrate than do a GIVEAWAY!” I have deliberately not really reviewed what happens through the fragrances life because I want you to experience it first hand, I will say though that it does smell like money……. lots of money

Roja Dove says at First In Fragrance: Sweet, sparkling, fresh, warm, dry, spicy & sensual
“While reading a book, I saw a woman described as ‘reckless maybe – foolish never’. I imagined how that woman would be: she was a woman who followed her heart, but was no one’s fool. I imagined her in the half-light, wearing a diamond necklace. Her world would be one of uncompromising luxury – her scent reflected her, she smelt expensive. She always got what she wanted; often taking risks to get it”.
I am surprised how much I’m enjoying it. There are reminders of other fragrances but they are done with what feels like reverence. To be honest I thought it would be much less lovely……
Very much in the styles of No 5, Joy and Arpege though I am currently wearing it on one hand and Mitsouko PdT on the other. Mitsouko is so gorgeously abrasive by comparison. Never has she seemed so green and arch to me. While Reckless is the balmy, warm and soapy, very genteel lady sitting primly in cashmere, with her knees pressed very firmly together and wearing very large baroque pearls. After Reckless has had her third dirty martini though………
Go On, join in the fun.
