This one came out in 2005 and wasn’t in production long–my mini came in a vintage lot I found online.
A pink grapefruit with lotus and woodsy musk, Addict 2 is the free-spirited big sister of Versace’s 2006 Bright Crystal. Watermelon keeps the pomegranate lighthearted, with a hint of sweetness from lily-of-the-valley. Sheer sandalwood holds the base close to the skin.
I do wonder about the dedication to this scent–full-sized sealed bottles are a hot auction item and can go for niche prices–it’s a bit pale and thin to me. Eau de Star (2007) has more depth and longevity and is easier to find, if one is looking for a fresh retro watermelon.
Pop songs and perfumes can make addiction seem fashionable but dependency shouldn’t be taken lightly. The SAMHSA website provides a lot of info on substance abuse and recovery help.
Soft solid that goes on with sugared grapefruit and sinks into the skin with lovely green forest woods. The cedar pushes it to the masculine end of unisex, but the musk at the end is sweet. Lasts a good three hours an inch off the hands.
Comforting and friendly. A great one to give as a gift.
A wincing blast of Ruby Red pink grapefruit out of the bottle that dries down to really lovely peaches sweetened with frangipani.
The musk on the bottom has some heat, a peppery note with the sandalwood, but with hard edges.
It’s got nice facets, but kind of jumbled–and the middle notes that I love last less than 20 minutes on me.
