How would you feel if a grand perfume bore your name? I think I’d definitely walk on air! Well, Paris Hilton does not need any formal announcement since the American television personality, singer, actress and model who is always followed around by camera flashes is the icon behind the Paris Lights Platinum fragrance.
Definitely, warmer seasons call for something fresh and light so honey, pack away those warming scents for colder days and lighten up your fragrance wardrobe. Currently, I’ve been looking at plenty of light fragrances and I shared a review on Sansiro for Women K242, a floral, sweet and soft scent that’s awesome for warmer seasons.

And again, when you have the best girlfriend like I do, she’ll not fail to gift you with the cutest perfume. Grace Bako always knew that I had a bad thing for fragrances so when she came across Paris Lights Platinum during her shopping spree, she couldn’t hesitate to purchase it for me. What a friend! She believed it was soft so she gifted me so that I could try it and give a review too.
Paris Lights Platinum comes in a very cute box package that is very eye-catching you bet. The perfume is a spray that bears a heavy glass bottle with the most elegant of openers thus will look classy and elegant on your dressing table. You’ll absolutely fall in love with it as soon as you see it. I’ve now used Paris Lights Platinum for a week and here’s my honest review:
Paris Lights Platinum is a fresh fragrance.
Fresh fragrances make one smell as clean instantly.
So if karma doesn’t hit you, then the feminine, musky and warm scent that Paris Lights delivers will. It hits all the right notes for a sexy evening scent but with a light freshness for spring. Milky-powdery and intensive sandalwood , musk and oakmoss give it a powerful base that lasts hours longer than you can expect; while the heart of floral, sweet and pure jasmine, freesia, lily, tuberose and lily of the valley give it a beautiful floral hit. How classic!
Just spray this fresh fragrance on yourself and you can smell like apples, oranges and melons wherever you go since its top notes were made voluptuous and seductive. Your sillage will definitely be admirable like mine has been for the last one week.
Paris Light Platinum is the Eau de Parfum type of soft fragrance yet not long lasting .
Fragrances are grouped according to their strength of essences. Eau de Toilette is least strong thus doesn’t last as long, Eau de Parfum comes in second as quite strong then Eau de Cologne comes in as the strongest of fragrances.
Eau de Parfum fragrances are considered as the most beautiful type of fragrances. Eau de Parfum releases its top, heart and base notes over a period of time due its higher concentration of essences than Eau de Toilette thus proving to be quite long lasting yet still soft in comparison to Eau de Cologne. For one who’s not into strong fragrances, I’d go for Eau de Parfum any day any time.
Many wear Eau de Parfum on clothing and hair but one must be careful to avoid staining of clothes. Although, to be on the safe side, it is better to wear perfume on heat zones and pulse points since one can just easily wash it away and still be sure of not staining clothes. I’m certain that you too wear perfume like this, right?
Anyway, Paris Lights Platinum has anchoring base notes that are soft so I have no worries when it comes to dealing with my allergens. I wear Paris Lights on clean , moist skin to ensure it lasts longer. But even so, I wish that it would last even longer since the scent lasts for around 3-4 hours depending on how you sprayed it. That just means that one would need carry the perfume along and spray several times to keep smelling fresh and awesome!
Word Problems Solved
Eau de Parfum refers to a mixture of fragrant aromas that give one’s body an agreeable scent when worn.
Sillage refers the trail of scent left behind by a person who has worn perfume.
Top notes; top notes form a person’s initial impression of a perfume. I mean, the scents that are first perceived immediately after application of the perfume. Top notes really affect the selling ability of a perfume.
Heart/ Middle notes; the immediate scent that’s noticeable after the top notes fade usually in about ten minutes.
Base notes are the scents of the perfume that bring depth and solidity to the perfume. Compounds used here are usually deep and not perceived until 30 minutes after wearing a perfume.
Well lovelies, I am definitely loving Paris Lights Platinum and as much as it costs quite a penny and doesn’t last as long, it is worth purchasing for its magnificent scent. And I’m glad that I’m adding more perfumes to my collection so I don’t have to worry about missing that beautiful scent.
Whenever I go for fragrances, I tend to consider:
- How soft a fragrance is, no matter it’s woody, floral, citrus or fresh nature.
- Its duration after application. This will ensure you bring it along or not!
