Review of Ed Hardy Hearts & Daggers, Perfume for Women

The last time I bought a perfume gift set at my local Macy’s, I was happy to see that they had added 2 brand new perfume sample viles into my shopping bag to try out as testers.

I never really like the free tester samples they have given to me in the past, but for once they got it right, and added a glass sample vile of Ed Hardy, Hearts and Daggers.

Not being a huge fan of the tattoo print guru, I figured I wouldn’t like it, but I naturally went ahead and tried it anyway. I mean hello, it was free. I had no idea that after spraying it for the first time, that the following week I’d be returning to Macy’s to purchase the full scale bottle of the perfume. I was won over in just seconds with this gem.

The Bottle:

The bottle that Hearts  amp; Daggers comes in is very juvenile, and fun, but their style has never been anything I am into. It almost makes the perfume seem cheap, generic, and low quality due to the bold nature of the tattoo graphic infested bottle.

The Scent:

At first Ed Hardy’s Hearts  amp; Daggers smells like pure fruity sweetness. This scent however has been overdone some many times in the past by other perfume companies. However Hearts  amp; Daggers begins to fade off into this odd little mixture of recognizable fruits that stand out on their own. The scent of citrusy grapefruit was what was most obvious to me at first, and a light but enjoyable undertone of sweet apples. It has other fragrances of florals that I was also able to pick up as the scent begins to settle in.

It would fleetingly remind you of Eclatant in places as the aroma is kind of similar but the florals definitely give it a flowery scent that is so strong that you can simply drink into it without even realizing it.

For me, Hearts and Daggers was a perfect mello mix of fruits and flowers, and the scent just reminded me of the warmer months that would soon be ahead.

The Last:

So it was obvious I was in love with the scent, but many perfume’s that smell like flowers and fruit tend to not last long at all, and I worried that Ed Hardy Hearts  amp; Daggers would have the same problem.

Thankfully the scent sticks, and it sticks for quite awhile. I was able to detect the sweeter notes of the fragrance for about a half day till finally I could no longer smell it.

Overall:

I’m in love with this one, it can be worn for any occasion, and it lasts so you do not have to really worry about carrying the bottle around with you for touch-ups.

If you already know you love fruity fragrances, you will especially find love for Ed Hardy’s Hearts  amp; Daggers.
