I think it's a bit of a no no to wear the same perfume as a friend. Even though I wear perfumes that are relatively mainstream like Coco Mademoiselle, I like to smell distinctive in a crowd. If both of you wear a fragrance when you meet each other, I don't think there is too much of a problem but adopting a friend's scent and wearing it at the same time is a bit wierd. I therefore sympathised with my good pal when she very reluctantly passed over the details of this gem (I promised not to wear it when she was around).
When I smelt Cleopatra on said friend I knew I had to have it. Unfortunately I worked with her five days a week meaning I couldn't wear it then. We also saw each other out of work which pretty much ruled out my free time too. Hmm, running out of time to splash it on I held off buying it.
Now my gal pal has trundled off to university in Norwich I finally got my hands on a bottle of this delicious smell. Cleopatra smells a bit like Narciso Rodriguez for her but nicer. I always get complimented when wearing it and the smell lingers for ages without being overpowering. I heart the super cute packaging.
