About Ed Hardy Love and Luck
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Man
Far from what the ads imply, Ed Hardy Love and Luck perfume is, like what most users commented, not so “tattooee”. There is no hint of the wildness that one can think of from the name of the fragrance.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck for men opens up with the familiar scent of bergamot, mandarin, and cardamom making the scent a bit too fruity but still pleasant. Although if you are looking for the more staid and classic scents this is just not the fragrance for you. Ed Hardy Love and Luck Man’s is quite a youthful and fun perfume more apt for teenagers.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Man’s transforms into heart notes of a unique blend of Sage, Cypress, and Violet and the very masculine scent of Absinthe. Although it is not entirely original, this one is a very adorable scent for men or rather teenage boys. It is sweet but is very fresh, the aroma of absinthe stands out the most for me in this perfume, and I tell you it does smell really fantastic.
The base note of this fragrance is a mixture of constituents’ musk, cedarwood, dark vetiver, and agarwood. This dry down although with a little bit of musk is mostly woody in scent with a bit of a sharp end.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Man’s actually smells like Unforgivable and SWM. Very fresh and clean but Love and Luck has longer staying power and is less expensive. It’s a really perfect choice of fragrance for the humid days of summer.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Female
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Female is inspired by the female Japanese culture, by Japan’s premium sake as well as by Asian fashion. This fragrance is floral in scent, the kind that does not get into your nose, just light and pleasant. It is sexy in some ways and sophisticated in others. It creates a great statement for females.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck Female’s opens up with a perfect blend of citrus scents, the very familiar bergamot and blood orange that is fabulously paired up with the interesting and unique aroma of red sake. It is a neat, light and a very pleasing fragrance.
The fruity opening then disappears into the floral scent of jasmine mixed up with the sweetness of blackcurrant, forbidden plum, and nectarine with a very subtle spice. The individual notes are distinct but the blend is very flawless, a really nice smell.
The fragrance then dries down into the predictable woody scents of musk, cedarwood, sandalwood, and patchouli, smells just like any other perfume with this base, so there is nothing much to say about it.
A good thing about Ed Hardy Love and Luck is that though it is not entirely original it does cost way lesser than other perfumes that smell similarly to it. This can be the perfect choice if you are looking for a light and fresh perfume perfect for the summer seasons that will not empty your pocket. The retail price for a 50ml bottle is $55 and for a 100ml bottle the retail price is $75.
Appropriate seasonal use
Both the female and male versions of Ed Hardy Love and Luck are really fresh and clean in a male and female way suitable for the warmth of summer and spring slots. But the scent is also playful and lively enough for it to qualify as use in a club or bar.
As mentioned earlier Ed Hardy Love and Luck is a youthful perfume; it is fun and trendy mostly apt for teenagers or to those in their middle 20s. But if you are not particularly concerned with the youthfulness of a fragrance then this might do just fine for you.
This fragrance is an excellent change for teenagers who now usualy use the infashion acqua scent that are becoming really boring.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck for males and females is currently in production, it is available with a lot of discount offers on the internet and it is available in most retail stores especially those that offer hip fashion collections.
For a not so expensive perfume Ed Hardy Love and Luck’s scent stays amazingly long. You can enjoy enough of it for 6 hours to 8 hours on a good day. Most perfumes that offer the same fragrance as with this design cannot match the staying power of Ed Hardy Love and Luck both male and female versions.
Ed Hardy Love and Luck is a really nice perfumes for teenagers. I’m not so sure if it is a bad thing that the “tattoo” or wildness or sexiness, for the female version, is not hinted from this fragrance, because the scent smells just fine without it.
Yes, Ed Hardy is a really brilliant artists, he has really good tattoo designs, and if the fragrance is to be judged by how it portrayed the man, the fragrance will receive a big flank. But there is just something about this scents that makes it better than others of similar intent perfumes. Aside from it having an amazing staying power, I think that maybe for the male version the absinthe really made it for the fragrance. And for the female version, the floral fruitiness was fabulous but the red sake accord made it stand out.
Though Ed Hardy Love and Luck can very much be called a frag, it did become a frag the best way possible, for it improved the scent but it is cheaper than its replicas.
This perfumes actually comes in a set; it also has a bath and shower gel version as well as a body lotion.
For one that is just starting with perfume explorations, this set can be a good start. If you are just aiming for the attention a hip brand provides then you can have enough of that from Ed Hardy. And if you just want to smell good and not weird or crazy then Ed Hardy Love and Luck is perfect for you.
