I came across Insolence by Guerlain from a sponsorship advert on ITV, the advert was on before after the show and twice during each set of advert breaks on each hour long episode of the programme series. After being brainwashed I thought I have to know what this fragrance smells like. I went off in search and found it in The Fragrance Shop. I got the tester and immediately fell in love with Insolence. It was so fresh and deep.
I couldn’t quite figure out what the scents were that I could pick out, every time I smelt it I seemed to pick out a different feel, it was sickly sweet and strong but at the same time slightly spicy. It also has a seductive feel to it.
I have found that depending on the occasion it seems to change its scent. For everyday I will use a little and it comes across subtle and fresh but for a date or evening wear I use a bit more and then the strong sweet spicy seductive aroma appears. The fragrance is also long lasting so a little goes a long way which in turn makes the perfume better value as you wont need to drown in it for the aroma to last all day or evening. This will probably sound mad but I love how this fragrance seems to make me feel sexy and so much more confident. It’s amazing what a little bit of perfume can do.
Insolence comes in an attractive looking bottle so it can be left out on display with out being an eye sore in the bedroom. The bottle is in the shape of half a ball with a slanted flat top. The lid is light pink and has two layers to it which are also slightly slanted.
At the time I bought it (early 09) there was an offer running so I bought a 50ml bottle of the shimmering version for £19.99 which I thought was very good value.
I am a huge fan of this perfume and wear it more or less everyday. I would definitely recommend Insolence and will be putting this on my christmas list as I'm nearly all out of my favourite perfume.
