Last year, Smell Bent launched the Remix Project where old favorites where giving the “DJ Treatment”. The rest of the perfume world would call this a flanker, but flanker sounds so dirty! I’ll go with remix.
Little Miss Panda Gets Lei’d opens as a bright fruity jasmine with a dewy guava. With time the fragrance gets an overripe guava with delicate honeyed white florals. The dry down is more honeyed florals with a mix of skin-hugging musk. Overall, it’s a sheer, breezy tropical fruity floral. How does it compare to the original Miss Panda? This one is better 🙂
Talking to Brent last summer, he said this was his #1 seller. I don’t know if that has changed over the past year, it possibly could have since this is a summery scent and it was summer. Regardless, this is my favorite Smell Bent fragrance out of the ones that I’ve tried. There’s a use of restraint and pretty materials (now the name, that’s a different story!). The final product is really pretty and can easily compete with florals by Annick Goutal or L’Artisan Parfumeur.
Notes listed include pikake, tuberose, guava, Japanese honeysuckle, and teak. Launch date 2012. PERFUMER – Brent Leonesio
Try Little Miss Panda GL if you are looking for a fruity tropical floral. Or try it if you like perfumes like Pacifica Hawaiian Ruby Guava, original Marc Jacobs, Ramon Monegal Kiss My Name, L’Artisan Parfumeur La Chasse Aux Papillons, Chantecaille Petales and/or Leila Lou. It is a feminine fragrance and I recommend it for warm weather wear.
Little Miss Panda GL wears like an EDT with average projection and longevity.
The EDT retails for $45 at Smell Bent. I have reviewed the spray (note that is the sample size pictured in this post). A perfume oil is also available.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – Breezy, honeyed white floral with the perfect amount of fruit. It has a stupid (or silly depending on who you ask) name but it’s still my favorite from the Smell Bent line.
