Panache is one of those drugstore classics that I think is due a revival. It’s a floral aldehyde that lasts twelve hours and my little 3.99 bottle has lasted me nine months (disclaimer: I don’t wear it every day or it would have run out sooner!).
Panache Mademoiselle is nothing like the original, but I happen to love it. At only 4.25 on Amazon.co.uk, you would think you would run the risk of not getting value for money. Not so. Panache Mademoiselle reminded me very much of Estee Lauder Pleasures and the longevity ain’t bad at all, especially when you factor in the laughably cheap price.
It opens fresh and clean and floral and stays light throughout every phase. There is allegedly strawberry, but thankfully this isn’t sickly and doesn’t have any of the candy floss that many commercial market leaders have right now over any High Street perfume counter.
There is always the worry that a perfume as cheap as this will smell cheap, but in this case I have smelled a lot worse for a lot more money. I would happily wear Panache Mademoiselle all day in all situations and it would make an ideal every day work perfume. It would also make a great gift or stocking filler and would be just right for a teen.
Milton Lloyd are doing great things right now and this is one of them. More to come!
