FRAGRANCE FILE: Abercrombie & Fitch First Instinct Review and GIVEAWAY

September 22, 2017



Do you remember that heady rush, a breathless state of setting eyes on someone delectably delicious? Okay, it was a long time ago for me, but I do remember that sense of expectancy and anticipation.  First Instinct for Women by Abercrombie & Fitch is a fragrant interpretation of that first moment where two worlds collide and sparks fly with instant attraction; of where a woman follows her first instinct.

First Instinct for Women is classified as a Floriental Wood. As the name implies it is a combination of oriental and floral notes, specifically when including notes of jasmine, gardenia, orange flowers and freesia fused with warm orientals like resin, spices and woods.  The notes may sound heady, but the interpretation is actually much lighter for a sensual seductive journey.



Top notes in First Instinct include magnolia, passion fruit and zesty grapefruit to awaken the senses; enchanting wild orange flower, butterfly orchid and exotic water lily at the heart and warm amber,  beguiling musk and creamy tonka notes at the base.


As stated by master perfumer Laurent le Guernec,

“I feel that First Instinct for Women is at once playful, feminine, and alluring. With a sensual opening, a sparkling development and a trail of irresistible yet effortless seduction, this formula was crafted to ensure captivation.” 


Abercrombie & Fitch is an American Clothing brand with a long history of laidback, luxury style, appealing to a younger generation and synonymous to the fragrance as very wearable. Think fun, flirty, sensual, the perfect match for summertime love! It's a daytime perfume, a first date or early evening drinks; I gravitate towards floral notes so I am really enjoying wearing it as it is not too heavy or offensive.  


First Instinct for Women by Abercrombie & Fitch is available from Edgars, Red Square and Foschini
