It’s been a while since I received this from the BDJBox Beauty Soiree, but I’d like to show you this interesting polish. This is Revlon Parfumerie, a recently released line from Revlon which claims that it is a scented nail polish. Basically what that means is, once the polish dries on your nails the scent will be released. If you sniff the actual polish, it will just smell like regular nail polish. The bottle is also different than the usual Revlon bottles – it is a squarish bottle with a round cap/brush handle.
The scent/shade I got is Ginger Melon. It is a bright neon pink on the nail.
How does it smell like? To me it reminds me of those hard candies of our childhood, those ones that are really sweet and takes forever to finish. It does not remind me at all of ginger or melon. How long does the scent last? During the first day the scent was really strong and it seemed like I dipped my fingers in crushed candy. On the second to fourth day, the strong scent virtually disappeared, but I could still smell it if I pressed my nails against my nostrils. Fifth day onward it only has a bare whiff of the original scent.
In conclusion, I am really more in love with the color more than the scent. I don’t think I am a huge fan of scented polish, but I think it’s better than smelling like nail polish, you know? Basta.
Revlon Parfumerie is available or soon to be available at Revlon counters. Revlon is not cruelty-free.
