Diesel Loverdose

This week I purchased the brand new fragrance offering from Diesel. I was particularly looking forward to the release of this fragrance since I heard the notes in it included Mandarin, Lemon, Star Anise, Gardenia, Jasmine, Licorice, Vanilla, Ambrox, Cedar and Sandalwood. When I had my first sniff of Loverdose I wasn't at all disappointed.

I like sweet fragrances. I always have, although my taste is somewhat maturing as I get older and I now wear fragrances from all fragrance families, the days of smelling like a sickly sweet lolly shop are thankfully behind me. I guess as I approach my mid thirties my life experiences and I like to think a little bit of wisdom is making my taste perhaps a tiny bit more refined than it once was.

Loverdose is still a sweet scent but it is a little more grown up than some of the other sweet scents on the market (Britney Spears I am looking at you). Diesel created this fragrance with the 25-55 age group in mind. I personally think age should not influence scent and that anyone can wear any scent regardless of age.

The bottle is a translucent purple heart with faceted glass which resembles a diamond. It has a black lid and a black sword going through the bottle from the inside (eludes to a sword through the heart one would assume).

This fragrance lasts a long time on my skin and I love wearing it. Best of all at the moment if you buy a 75ml bottle from Myer or The Perfume Connection you get a 30ml bottle for free as a gift with purchase. The 30ml bottle is gorgeous to keep in your handbag. The 75ml costs $110.

I would recommend this fragrance to anyone who likes a sweet scent. It is so feminine and pretty.

Note: I am not sponsored by Diesel, Myer or The Perfume Connection. This fragrance was purchased with my own money and all opinions are entirely my own.


  1. I love sweet scents too so clearly I need to sniff this one.

  2. Gosh I sniffed this the other day and adore, it has that gorgeous liquorice note that Lolita Lempicka has <3
