I was sent a 30ml bottle of James Bond ‘007 For Women’ Eau De Parfum’ to try out as part of a blogger project with trnd.com.
I was required to fill in a couple of surveys on their site about my opinions of the perfume and share some mini sample sachets with friends. I thought I’d write a quick review post on here as well so that you too can see what I thought of the fragrance. 🙂
The all new 007 for Women fragrance embodies the dangerously seductive nature of the Bond Woman. Conveying the mysterious allure of these enigmatic women, the scent is a modern interpretation of the mysterious oriental fragrances worn by women throughout the last century.

The 30ml Eau De Parfum has an RRP of £25.00 but the cheapest price I can currently find it for is on offer for £22.50 at Debenhams with free click & collect. I have seen that Boots also sell it and they currently have it on offer for £23.00 with free instore collection plus , at the moment, when you buy it online you get a free James Bond IPad case and a free James Bond jewellery pouch.

So, what are my thoughts on the 007 For Women fragrance:-
I really like this scent. I am not really a fan of James Bond films so if I’m honest I would never have considered trying one of the 007 fragrances to possibly purchase but I have now discovered that is a real pity as this fragrance is lovely and I would have been missing out!
The packaging and bottle are very Bond-esque with the 007 logo on the box and the jagged spiky texture on the bottle. I like how the perfume bottle has been designed so the smooth neck of the bottle with gold embellishment and the rounded edge of the raised jagged texturing has been made to appear like the décolleté of a ladies’ dress (the low neckline of a garment) and a gold necklace around her neck. Very clever!
The fragrance could be worn throughout the day but I think it is more suited to being an evening fragrance as it is quite intense. It is a warming, oriental fragrance and the sweet smell of the vanilla is quite evident. It is a sweet and spicy floral scent that lasts all day long.
It reminds me very much of the Hugo Boss intense that I used to wear and I think this is because the Hugo Boss intense fragrance also has fragrant notes of rose, vanilla, amber, and sandalwood.
I recommend 007 For Women to you if you are looking for a sophisticated scent that is feminine and slightly spicy.
