NEW! Benefit See & Be Seen Sasha Fragrance

Benefit is rolling out a bunch of new products lately, and one of their latest releases is the new See & Be Seen Sasha fragrance.

"Take center stage with this bold burst of floral energy that seduces and mesmerizes from across the room."

To begin, I love the packaging of this (as I usually do with Benefit products).  I've never owned any of their fragrances, but I love the little flip-out box this comes in, along with the artsy gold bottle.  For some reason the gold color and shape of this bottle reminds me of something I would find in the Cave of Wonders in Aladdin.  Am I right?!  Hands off, Abu!

When I first smelled this, I was particularly surprised by how much I liked the scent.  I'm not good at recognizing exact notes in a fragrance, but upon looking them up, I found the following:

Top notes: orange flower absolute, apricot, pink freesia
Middle notes: ylang ylang, tiare flower, white peony, jasmine sambac
Base notes: crystal amber, liquid musk, vanilla

Ahh, that explains it!  I LOVE florals with a bit of musk to them.  Good job, Benefit!

See & Be Seen Sasha contains 30ml/1.0 fl oz and retails for $36.

For my first Benefit fragrance experience, I'm really happy with this!  The scent is nice and it wears well on my skin: not too strong, not too weak.  I'm sometimes a bit hesitant when companies that are mostly makeup-based have fragrances too, but this is a nice one.

Have you ever tried any of Benefit's fragrances?
