Swarovski Aura EDP Perfume Review

Swarovski Aura EDP

Mainstream Monday – Sniffing a Popular Perfume

Rose Week 2013

Aura is Swarovski’s first fragrance. I have a confession. I like Swarovski. I like glimmering, frivolous objects. I’m not a total addict. I don’t collect the figurines but I really do love Swarovski encrusted objects and beauty pageant/drag queen jewelry.

Aura opens as a fruity lychee and clean rose with a dry pink pepper. It smells “pink”. I like the zing of the lychee but I find that it fades quickly and becomes more nondescript fruits and florals with wear. It dries down to this fruity rose and white musk. Most of its “aura” is white musk.

Aura isn’t a bad fragrance but it is redundant. It reminds me very much of something else but I can’t put my finger on it. I like the packaging but I expected something more dazzling, like more aldehydes, from Swarovski. However, I think the person that shops for Swarovski glitzy things probably wants to smell pink and pretty.

Notes listed include lychee, rose, tuberose, pink pepper, amber, benzoin and white musk. Launch date 2011. PERFUMERS – Olivier Cresp and Jean-Pierre Bethouart

Give Aura a try if you like fruity florals or perfumes like Mistral Lychee Rose, Vera Wang Truly Pink, Chloé, and/or Burberry Brit Sheer. Aura is feminine and should work in any season.

Projection and longevity are average. An EDT is also available; I haven’t tried it.

Aura is available at Swarovski boutiques. Or at Beauty Encounter with prices ranging from $50-$82.

Victoria’s Final EauPINIONPink stuff (rose, pink pepper, lychee) over white musk. It’s not really a stand out for me.

  1. Oh how sad.
    I’m glad that you seem like me thought to associate aldehydes with zing and fizz and jazz age sparkle.
    When will they make an effervescent return?
