Korres Does Fragrance

I have been waiting for Korres to release some of their scents in fragrance form, and they have... sorta. They've actually created completely new fragrances that don't seem to completely match up with the scents in their "normal" collection. I'm tempted, really. The price point isn't too bad; $45 and they are currently running a deal.

What they say: "Korres Fragrances are an expression of individuality and mood, a reflection of the various sides of one's self created from natural ingredients such as Rosewood, Cyclamen, Cardamom, Jasmine, Saffran, Pepper, Passion Fruit: Aromatic blends that balance luxury and simplicity, timelessness and modernity."

There are 3 scents currently. Kind of wanting a few more choices to pick from, myself. *hint* I'm actually digging the scent description for the "male" scent.

With top notes of Cardamom, Bergamot and Cinnamon, a heart of Saffron, Cedar wood, Carnation, Sandalwood and the strong, masculine base notes of Amber, Agarwood and Vanilla Korres fragrance for men offers a timeless male scent that is intense yet gentle and infused with woody and amber notes.
Saffron, was first cultivated in Greece. Kozani in northern Greece continues to produce the world's best quality saffran. With over 150 volatile and aroma-yielding compounds, saffron's original and seductive aroma has often been described by connoisseurs as reminiscent of metallic honey with grassy, hay-like notes.
Agarwood, or Agar, is the aromatic resin that is formed within the heartwood of the Aquilaria trees. The complex yet pleasing and distinct aroma of agarwood is unique.
Cardamom, one of the most expensive spices, carries a strong unique taste and intense aroma. A traditional open flame drying process lends a smoky flavor to the spice.

What do you think? Do you think us gals could rock that?

There are 2 other scents; one labeled for women and one unisex. I kind of almost wish Korres had just put the scents out there unlabeled.

Korres fragrances retail for $45 and are 3.38 floz. Unfortunately, they can't currently ship them to California which is somewhat odd, but those are the rules!

Until April 27th, you can also get this free gift!

What do you think? Haul worthy?

Carnation is a "manly" smell now? Dang! I love me the smell of carnations, so spicy and just gorgeous. This sounds really interesting, I wonder if we'll be getting the scents in the UK?
