Smell something nice but it isn’t perfume? Go around with your painted nails and have the fragrance to linger around you. Introducing the new nail polishes of Revlon Parfumerie where it leaves your nails with fragrance finishing.

The collection is divided into 3 fragrance and color families: Fruits & Florals for exotic and fruity fragrance notes in vibrant, punchy shades; Sweets & Spices for woody, spicy fragrance notes in deep, rich shades and Freshes for crisp, clean scents in light and airy shades.

Fragrance is meant to be an accessory, and with Revlon Parfumerie™ Scented Nail Enamel you can change your nail color and scent as often as your mood to express your individuality!’

I thought the bottle look very cute where it looks like the classic old school perfume bottles with rounded knob as the handle. I believe they might have adopted the concept and they are possibly related due to fragrance but these nail polishes bottles are mini sizes.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Brush

The brush looks just like many other nail polishes and the fragrance doesn’t come immediately during the application. While applying the nail polish, it smells just exactly like other nail polishes. Initially, I thought that it should smell like a fragrance from the bottle itself and I took a heavy whiff then I choke. Silly me!

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel China Flower

China Flower is categorized under Fruits and Floral. It is a bright red shade with orange undertone, this is a solid color with shine finish. Although it is meant to be fruit and floral fragrance, I find it on a heavy musky scent that lasted me for at least 4 days but of course, the scent fades slowly as the day goes on. I find the scent is too masculine for me.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Surf Spray

Surf Spray is under the Freshes category and it did have a hint of refreshing scent.  Just like how it is named, Surf Spray is a bright ocean blue shade with shimmer finish. This scent didn’t last very well on me and I will share about it why it didn’t later in this post. I had to apply two layers to achieve this finish.

Revlon Parfumerie Scented Nail Enamel Autumn Spice

Autumn Spice falls under the category of Sweet and Spices and it has a light musky scent but I wasn’t able to catch any sweet scent from it. Autumn usually relates to the drying falling leaves where it turns orange or brown hence this brown shade finishes off with pink shimmers.

Above all…

 I liked how intense and long lasting scent when I started on China Flower but I didn’t like the strong musky scent. I was hoping to get better scent from the rest but it isn’t as strong as the first. One of the reason could be the top coat where it may suppress the scent. Therefore the scent wasn’t able to ‘linger’ around further, does that make sense?

Initially, I didn’t want to use top coat but I had to since it wears off quickly just by a day and you could see it for Autumn Spice. It could easily transfer, for example I accidentally swipe my nails over the papers and I could see traces of color on the paper. Therefore, I had no choice but to apply top coat to make it last longer and it definitely made a difference.

I liked the colors but the fragrance just didn’t hit me because I’m the type of person who would go with any scent but musky. I’m more attracted to the colors than the scent. It is very hard to determine the scent, especially when you are new to this nail polishes because the fragrance only settles when the nail polishes dries on your nail bed. Most importantly is to pick the shade that you like. It is very new in-store and it should be available this month.
