Happy Valentine's Day! Kate Spade Twirl Review

Kate Spade Twirl
I was first introduced to Kate Spade's Twirl fragrance when I received my June 2011 Birchbox

Sweet, fruity, and almost effervescent, it reminded me of Yyes Saint Laurent timeless classic Yvresse (originally known as Champagne).  I love that fragrance, and I love Twirl.  I found that it was not as heavy as Yvresse, and certainly not as complex.  I decided to purchase a full size bottle.

Twirl is packaged in a red and pink box. Inside, I found an adorable round bottle with gold dots!  Light glints off the gold and reflects prettily on surrounding surfaces.

Although I have worn this in the office, the fragrance is one that I particularly enjoy wearing in the evenings, or when I am at a party.  This is partly because the fragrance does tend to wear off after a few hours, and partly because the scent does evoke rather more festive emotions. I can definitely detect the peachy notes in Twirl, along with currants and berries.

I absolutely love this fragrance for Valentine's Day. It makes me want to nibble on strawberries and sip champagne!

Twirl is one of my favourite perfumes! It reminds me of Tasha or Ariane perfume by Avon, way back in the early 80's when I sold it! I loved the scent back then and still do! I have the big bottle, too! It is a very playful scent! I just wish it lasted all day long!!

@ElvenEyes Wow! I got the smaller bottle - a lot of people don't like this fragrance but it really makes me happy ;-)
