Perfume Review: Satu Plum Nectar from Anthropologie.

Posted in beauty products by bluewellesleyblue on August 22, 2008

I have been absolutely, dizzyingly in love with this scent for months. Though I’ve yet to buy it or the more affordable rollerball, I’ve tried it on no less than six times using the testers at the Anthropologie store. The Satu brand is an Anthropologie exclusive available there. The Satu fragrances are fairly affordable relative to other upper-end eau de parfums at roughly fifty dollars for a full 3.4 fl oz. Outside of the rollerball, that’s the only size option.

In general, the Satu fragrances are fruity or floral and very, very light. The “Plum Nectar” is a bit sweet, and though one of the notes is allegedly something called “blackberry patchouli” – a gimmick, really – I don’t get any of patchouli’s spice from it at any point. I do get a light sort of vanilla musk from this fragrance throughout it’s opening, which makes it a bit more complex than other simple, fruity perfumes. Not that it is a particularly complex perfume, but it is not very in your face fruity at all, despite the name.

Though this is a very light scent, it has fairly good lasting power. I can still smell it on my wrist up to three hours after a spritz. It’s very pleasant throughout, if a bit predictable, just the same light and fruity sweetness getting progressively lighter the whole way through.

The bottle is absolutely lovely. I imagine this being a perfect scent for summer as well as fall and winter because of the warmth of the vanilla-y musk in the opening. I have the Body Butter (most likely on sale right now at your local Anthropologie if they still have it at all), which layered beautifully with Dior J’adore. I personally think this particular perfume fits my girly-going-on-mature style pretty well.
