Not Soap Radio has a cute collection of 9 solid “trans-portable” perfumes called “I’m not here, I’m really…” somewhere awesome. The line is affordable and is FAA approved travel-sized. I’m not here, I’m really Walking the Red Carpet is the glamour girl in the collection.
Walking the Red Carpet opens as a lemony rose with tart, fruity currant sharpness. This gives the illusion of a living rose. There’s a bit of green dewiness with that distinct sour currant. The fragrance smells like a bouquet of roses. Lively, energetic, Miss America waving roses. It smells like cut florist roses.
The packaging is simple and is housed in a plastic container. The texture of this solid is harder than others, not clumpy. It takes some body heat to get it to slip. It wears like a solid perfume: linear and close to the skin. It’s base is macadamia oil, coconut oil, jojoba oil and beeswax. This also doubles as a hair pomade! I’m using it as beautifully scented cuticle cream as well.
Notes listed include black currant leaf, black currant, red currant, Bulgarian rose and jasmine.
Give I’m Really Walking the Red Carpet a try if your like fresh floral scents or perfumes like Penhaligon’s LP 9 for her, Annick Goutal Quel Amour!, Demeter Flower Show and/or YSL Baby Doll. Try it if you like fruity roses or the “hiss” of blackcurrant.
This solid perfume retails for $15 and is available at Not Soap Radio. Other products like a dry oil, body polish and body wash are available in this fruity-rose fragrance.
Victoria’s Final EauPINION – A green, living rose with tart, fruity currant. It’s a florist red rose.
