Carolina Herrera Good Girl Gift Set
“It’s so good to be bad!”
The Autumn Perfumes Exhibition took place at Mishref Fair Grounds (Halls 5,6,7,8) during October 24 and was meant to end on November 6, but was extended to November 9 (because… weekend).
After walking around for a bit, I found a booth (forgot the name) that sold fragrances from several brands including Paco Rabanne (where I purchased the Invictus Gift Set as a birthday gift for my cousin) and Calvin Klein and Jimmy Choo and Marc Jacobs and Carolina Herrera and Jean Paul Gaultier and more (can’t remember the rest).
After playing around with Carolina Herrera Good Girl Eau de Parfum I was completely smitten with the scent and picked up the Gift Set for myself!
WELL BEHAVED GIRLS RARELY MAKE HISTORY
Powerful, playful and a lady on the edge, the GOOD GIRL is never afraid to be herself, challenging the expectations of everyone she meets. Her magnetic sensuality captivates men and women alike as she knows exactly where and when to reveal her true self; good and bad.
It wasn’t sealed. Instead, it came swathed in a transparent plastic bag.
The box was in the form of the letter “D” (which quite frankly was impressive if a bit odd).
The accompanying transparent outer sleeve was also cut in the shape of the letter “D” (doesn’t seem like it’d be easy to make them in that shape).
The Gift Set consisted of Good Girl Eau de Parfum (80mL) and Good Girl Body Lotion (100mL)
I hate gold.
I’ve mentioned my aversion to all things gold from day 1 on this blog. As such, this box did nothing for me.
I’m also not the biggest fan of glitter.
On the plus side, at least this stuff doesn’t transfer (yet).
The inside was a completely different matter. Look at that gorgeous… red!
Top Notes: Almond
Heart Notes: Tuberose, Sandalwood
Base Notes: Tonka Bean, Cocoa, Coffee
No wonder this thing smelled so intoxicating!
It had Sandalwood, which I find addictive! It also had Almond and Tonka Bean and Cocoa, all things that smell sinfully sweet! Best of all, it had Coffee, the main reason for this purchase and my one true love!
We can disregard the Tuberose and pretend that it doesn’t exist in this scent and just focus on all the other good stuff. There’s also Jasmin Sambac in this baby, but for whatever reason it’s not listed over here.
I must say, the inside looked stunning!
I love the pairing of the darker colors against the red (velvet? felt?) and even kinda’ don’t begrudge the hints of gold.
Good Girl Body Lotion (100mL)
Unfortunately, products that come in this sort of packaging tend to turn (smell rank) pretty quick. No worries, I’ll just be sure to use it all up in time.
That said, I love that it’s all black! So cool!
I also love that it’s a light-weight Body Lotion as opposed to a heavy and greasy Body Cream! It’s actually a pretty decent amount too!
Good Girl Eau de Parfum (80mL)
It might look black but it’s actually a deep blue, aside from the black atomizer and gold heel.
I actually spotted this baby on display years ago at Harvey Nichols and was staring at it trying to figure out how to open it lol but before I had time to notice that the atomizer was at the upper back of the stiletto, I heard the ground-rumbling footsteps of a gang of bloodthirsty sales assistants and decided to
escape leave before they could approach me.
I think I also saw it at Sephora, but had a sales assistant with me and didn’t touch the thing, because I still hadn’t figured out what to press (the atomizer really blends in, if you don’t know what you’re looking for) and didn’t wanna’ look stupid in front of the sales assistant lol
In case you’re interested, you can still purchase this baby at Sephora.
Ain’t she a beaut?
I don’t know if it’s because of the actual scent (still hadn’t had enough time to play around with it) or if it’s because of the stiletto itself (yes.) or if it’s because of the name Good Girl (but we all know they really mean Bad Girl) or if it’s because the first time I wore this baby out and about was to go see Joker (incredibly well-made movie!) and now I just associate it with that, but I find the scent to be so cool and sexy AF (good job, CH Marketing Team)!
I’m so glad I finally bit the bullet and got this baby! In my opinion, Good Girl Eau de Parfum is definitely worth the hype!
I’m not sure how much Good Girl Gift Set usually retails for, but during the Autumn Perfumes Exhibition, it was reduced to KD 23.
Good Girl Eau de Parfum comes in 30ml and 50mL with the largest size being the 80mL (as shown).
As far as I know, aside from Good Girl Eau de Parfum there’s also Good Girl Eau de Parfum Légère (sampled earlier here and can honestly say I much prefer the original Good Girl). Lastly, they keep re-releasing Good Girl Eau de Parfum in limited edition collector’s packaging. I think they’re all the same scent, but in different packaging.
– The original Good Girl Eau de Parfum (as shown) was released in 2016
– Good Girl Glitter (decorated with sequins) was released in 2017
– Good Girl Swarovski (hand-decorated with nearly 2,000 Blue Swarovski Crystals) was released in 2017 (only 300 copies)
– Good Girl Velvet Fatale (red velvet stiletto) was released in 2018
– Good Girl Glorious Gold (glitter gold stiletto, not unlike the packaging on the Gift Set Box) was released in 2019
– Good Girl Dot Drama (black stiletto with white dots) was released in 2019
Also in the Good Girl family there’s a Hair Mist (same cute stiletto packaging with the majority being a frosted blue except the atomizer is black and the actual heel is gold, so all in all, yuck) and a Body Cream (blue round tub with a golden lid) and a Leg Elixer (what seems to be glitter in oil… hard pass) and a Shower Gel (blue container with a gold lid… intriguing).
If you spot this baby, give it a sniff!
