I received this perfume as a gift at Christmas time. Not having tried this one before and being quite fussy about my choice of perfume I was intrigued to find out what I thought of it.
Nothing fancy, quite an ordinary looking bottle. Square shaped from the front with quite a narrow depth, this bottle is clear glass with a metallic silver base, a square clear plastic lid and silver coloured spray top. The name X20 is on the glass front of the bottle in pink graffiti style writing. Above it in smaller writing is Ted Baker London and below is Extraordinary
The scent of this perfume is made up of Mirabelle plums, water lilies and precious woods giving a sophisticated, sensual musk fragrance. When first applied to my pulse points, I found this perfume to be quite overpowering, however, not at all unpleasant with a very strong musky, woody scent but with a sweet fruitiness coming through. After about 10 minutes, once the initial scent died down slightly I still felt this scent was predominantly musky but still with a fruity background fragrance.
I found this perfume to be quite a strong perfume, which surprisingly did hold its scent quite well on my pulse points for most of the day. However, I personally feel it is quite a masculine scent, being quite strong and musky. I liked the fact that it lasted most of the day and didn't need reapplying. I will use this perfume but it's not one I would go out to buy for myself, as I prefer lighter scents.
