Closer By Halle Berry Fragrance Review


Just about everyone has a fragrance these days and Halle Berry is no newcomer in the beauty world. With four signature scents under her belt she recently released her 5th and newest fragrance"Closer" which is a  fresh floral fragrance that blends the traditionally masculine fougere accord with tantalizing floral notes. The result of this fusion is a woodsy floral fougere that’s ideal for the fall season. Utterly beguiling and seductive, Closer by Halle Berry marks a rare, unique approach to women’s fragrance.
“I wanted to create a unique fragrance for women that would also appeal to men,” says Halle Berry. “Scent is very closely linked with desire and attraction and I love the idea that a fragrance can bring a man and a woman together. Closer creates a new level of intimacy through the power of scent.”
Fragrance Notes Include:
Top: Wild Raspberry, Waterlily, Ozonic Accord
Mid: Fougere Accord, Violet Flowers, Mimosa, Cedar Wood
Dry: Vanilla Bean, Mahogany Wood, Cashmere Musk
Fragrance Genre: Modern Fresh Floral Fougere

Closer by Halle Berry





Glow: I like the packaging, it's elegant yet very simple. I'm not a fan of overly intricate packaging or bottle designs because I think it draws away the focus from the product and some are just awkward to use. I love the minimalist approach of the overall look of the fragrance. The scent is strong but not overwhelming and I like the inspiration behind it which was to create something that would be alluring for both men and women. It's also very calming.

Glare: As I mentioned it does have a strong scent and reminds me more so of a cologne than a woman's fragrance. I personally prefer softer scents because they work well with my body chemistry. It smells pleasant but there is something about it that just doesn't wow me. It's definitely not an everyday type of fragrance in my opinion.

Would I Recommend It? Not if you're someone who prefers soft floral scents as opposed to woody fragrances. Although it does soften with wear it still has sort of a masculine edge to it.

Where To Buy: Closer by Halle Berry is available at mass-market retailers and drugstores nationwide. The 1.0 fl oz Eau de Parfum Spray retails for $28. To learn more about Closer, Halle's full collection of fragrances or to locate a retailer near you please visit www.halleberryfragrances.com.

  2. We have this at work and I've been dying to sniff it. I actually prefer masculine scents. I buy men's cologne often so maybe I'll force the girl to open up a box so I can get a whiff!

    1. Hey Nikkkkkkkkk ^_^ Yeah it doesn't have a bad smell at all just a little stronger than I'd like but I figured it's just a matter of preference. Since you like colognes I think you'd definitely like this one! Thanks for dropping by :-)

    1. lmao! It's actually kinda weird when you think about it. Why would men be attracted to women wearing masculine scents O_O

  4. I looove it. Found a tester @ KOHLS (which is hard to do nowadays)first thing when I went into the store. Fragrance seemed to disintegrate,SO I went back for more (2x). It's now 3 hours later. The tones have changedover the course and as I've said, I love it.

  5. I agree with the initial statements of this fragrance that it is very pleasant. However, it did not wow me either. It certainly has a clean manly edge to it and I will definitely choose carefully on what days and attire I will wear it with for those reasons. Because it is still a relatively new fragrance for me, I'll have to wear it a couple of times before deciding if it has a bit of a strong/cheapy kick to it. Something tells me that it just might. hopefully I will be pleasantly surprised. :)
