Our impression of Velvet Teddy is that of a sophisticated, addictive, and an extremely enjoyable fragrance! Having worn Tom Ford’s Tobacco Vanille, we do see some similarities and why this may be deemed a close dupe. It has longevity and versatility while being a unisex fragrance. Velvet Teddy is one of six fragrances in the Shadescents collection, inspired by, and named after, the legendary shades of MAC Lipsticks. This oriental fragrance is inspired by the sensuality of the Velvet Teddy Lipstick shade. It opens with bright bergamot and spicy ginger zest that is tempered with a rich and sensual tobacco flower. The heart of the fragrance is soft golden mimosa, vanilla orchid, and wild honey accord. The final notes are liquid musk, smoky papyrus root with an infusion of exotic tonka bean. Ultimately, it is a very wearable fragrance for everyday use. Spicey & Divine!
