Designer Perfumes

About Fragrance Outlet – Designer Perfumes

Fragrance Outlet is one of the nation’s largest retailers of genuine designer fragrances and related accessories. Our stores offer the widest selection of designer perfume and fragrances at the most affordable prices. We carry the most popular names in fragrance including Calvin Klein, Lacoste, Escada, Hugo Boss, Carolina Herrera, Paco Rabanne, Michael Kors, Thierry Mugler, DKNY, Coach, Davidoff, Vera Wang, and many other in-demand designer fragrances.

I was asked to review Bamboo For Women and since I never turn down a great fragrance, naturally I jumped at the chance.  I had never heard about this brand of perfume and for a minute there I wondered what I was getting myself into.  The fact is, I have a very sensitive nose so to be trying a perfume that I know nothing about was probably not a good idea…LOL….Anyhoooo since I had already committed to review I decided that it was too late to back out.

About Bamboo For Women

Bamboo for women is an exclusive fragrance sold by Fragrance Outlet which was launched by Franck Olivier in the year 2012, inspired by the bamboo plant, an Eastern symbol. This fragrance is available in glass flacons accompanied by a trendy bamboo relief stem, carrying light pink liquid that symbolizes freshness.

SCENT
  • Top notes: Blackcurrant, violet leaves, ivy
  • Middle notes: Lily, rose, ylang-ylang, freesia
  • Base notes: Musk, cedar and vetiver

I love the way the package was presented!   Many times companies send an item to review and not much care is taken with packaging but The Fragrance Outlet did a marvelous job with the packaging.  First impressions last!  Another thing I loved was the fact that I also got a $5 discount along with samples for some other fragrances.   I thought that was pretty cool and the fragrance deal of a lifetime.  After all, this perfume cost $89 and here I was with a full sized sample and if that was not enough I had four other perfumes to sample.  Well let’s get back to the business at hand!

Did I like the scent? YES, I loved it and after this bottle is finished I believe I would like to continue using it.   Note to self though and to all of you with a sensitive nose; just a little dab is all you will need for a lasting effect.   The first time I used it, I went overboard a bit and paid the price.  So now that I am aware of  how strong this scent is, I know now that I just need to spray a small amount and it will last me all day.  In fact, even the next day the scent was still lingering on my cardigan.

So thank you so much Fragrance Outlet for bringing Bamboo for Women to my attention! Ladies and gentlemen, if you are looking for a one stop shop for Designer Perfumes, then please look no further. This is the place to hang out when you want to experiment with fragrances without leaving the comfort of your home.

    I love The Fragrance Outlet. It always blows my mind how expensive designer perfumes are, but I love that this place gives your wallet a break!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Aaaaaaaaw a fellow smart shopper. Really some of these things do not have to be that expensive. As consumers we fuel the madness by continuing to buy even when the prices are way up

  8. Teresa says:

  12. jill conyers says:

    It’s been so long since I’ve worn a perfume I’m not sure what I would choose if I wore it now. I’m more of a body natural body spray kind of girl. Bamboo sounds wonderful for anyone that wears perfume.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Jill I was saying the same thing before I got this perfume to review. I have just not been wearing perfume at all for quite a while

  13. Whitney S. says:

  14. Ashley says:

    We have a similar store near us. I never go in there but I think I should!

  15. Cassandra says:

    I don’t wear perfume. I’m very sensitive to smells. I buy just about everything in fragrance free.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

  18. HilLesha says:

    This sounds like a lovely scent! It’s a shame that I can’t really wear perfume because of my allergies, plus I have such a sensitive nose. 🙁

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Oh no, not another person who can’t enjoy fragrances because of allergies. HilLesha I am so sorry to hear that

  19. Marie says:

    I have never heard of this perfume. I think I have enough perfume in general though to last me 50 years, but always nice to know about some more sites 🙂

  20. Rosey says:

    I’ve wondered about the website. I found an old fragrance there that’s out of production. I’d like to buy it.

  21. Stacey says:

    Bamboo for Women sounds like it smells amazing, and I like how a little can go a long way. I am sensitive to strong smells so I’d want to use a little anyways!

  22. Lisa Rios says:

    I love designer perfumes a lot and Bamboo For Women sounds like a wonderful fragrance to try out with a nice looking package. I am going to check for the Fragrance Outlet to grab one of them!

  23. Echo says:

    It’s always awesome when you can snag a great deal on a designer item! Thank you for sharing this!

  24. Unfortunately, my allergies won’t allow me to wear perfumes. I used to love them when I was younger, but as I have gotten older, the smell really bothers me. Even the slightest bit can send me into a coughing fit. That’s too bad. Some perfumes smell great to me. I would love to smell this one.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Dawn there are so many persons on this one post that are bothered by allergies. This is really sad

  25. rachel says:

    This sounds like an awesome store for people who love perfume. I don’t wear it much anymore, but it sounds like there are great choices.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Rachel it really is. I have been purchasing from them for quite a while now. Their prices are good and I love the fact that you can get a sampler if necessary

  26. [ Smiles ] Most people would jump at the opportunity to buy designer fragrances at a reasonable price.

  27. Teresa says:

    My daughters would love if I took them for a visit to this store. They adore perfum and love to try different ad new smells all the time.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Teresa they sound like my daughter and niece…LOL. They can’t leave the house without their perfume

  28. Heather says:

    This sounds very cool! I haven’t worn fragrances in a long time because my nose became hyper sensitive after my first pregnancy, but I have been trying to ease back into it.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Heather, it is so sad that so many of us cannot wear certain fragrances….Sigh

  29. Liz Mays says:

    I’d love to start shopping with Fragrance Outlet. Their exclusive Bamboo for women fragrance sounds really nice!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Liz I have been shopping their lately as I ease myself back into the fragrance thing…

  30. What a cute package! I’m a sucker for a good perfume too. Glad you enjoyed it.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Julie it is indeed a cute package…LOL…I was kinda shocked when I opened the outer wrapping

  31. Wendy says:

    I tend to go with more natural options and haven’t heard of this, but it sounds like a great option for those who love perfume.

  32. Katy says:

    I’ve never heard of Fragrance Outlet, they sound like a great place to find perfume. I always have to be really careful with perfume since I’m allergic to most.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Katyashadeofteal so many people are allergic these days. That means being very careful when it comes to things like fragrances

  33. I have been searching for a new fragrance! I love the ones that you don’t need a lot of to get the job done, it seems like some you have to reapply almost non stop.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      William, I do not like to reapply often but neither do I want something that is too strong. I like to strike that balance

  34. I have to be so careful because of my allergies but I will take your advice and just start with a little dab.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      AnnMarie I cannot stand any scent that is too overpowering at all. So I tread very carefully

  35. Musky, Woody, scents are juts up my street, I am e very loyal brand user though. Bamboo sounds awesome though

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Julie good to hear that you are loyal to a brand. I would not say I am loyal but there are some scents that have been a staple on my dresser. I am open to trying new ones though

  36. I love musky scents, and this one sounds (smells) like something I would personally use. I love the sleek packaging, too!

  37. Nikki Wayne says:

    Oh, I want to try this but I am not sure if my allergies won’t be triggered by the strength.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Nikki as I suggested, start off with a little dab. A little dab will go a long way especially for person with allergies

  38. Kandi says:

    I am not big on perfume but I ran out of my bottle recently (it usually lasts me a good couple of years) so I need to find a new one. I usually do Victoria Secret but I will check out this site and see what they have!

  39. Heather McMechan says:

    I love reading about perfumes and good to know about outlets, especially for gift giving during the holidays.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Heather I totally forgot about the gift giving part. That is a fantastic idea because who does not love a good scent?

  40. Karlyn Cruz says:

    Oh, what a wonderful review. I like review posts because it helps me decide but of course, I need to smell it myself.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Karlyn and that you can do by getting a sampler from the company. Typically what I do is purchase several samplers so if I don’t like it then it was not a full bottle. The sampler is just enough to allow you to make an educated decision

  41. I have never heard of bamboo but it does sound like a lovely, strong scent. I will take your advice on a little going a long way x

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Ana believe me when I say a little goes a long way…LOL…This is especially important for persons with sensitive noses

  42. Amanda Love says:

    Sounds like an awesome scent to me! Thanks for reviewing this one and for providing a good place to shop for perfume online! This makes things more convenient, without a doubt.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Amanda I believe it does make things more convenient. As long as you know what you are looking for

  43. Debra says:

    It sounds like a little goes a long way. I will have to check this out soon!

  44. she joh says:

    This sounds like a great bran, I love how descriptive you were and I’m surprised companies don’t take more time and consideration into their packaging when sending samples out

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      She Joh I too am surprised because I think it starts from the packaging. Thanks for stopping by

  45. The bottle is so beautiful and the fragrance notes sound amazing. I like a more musky, rich scent, so this perfume sounds like my kind of scent.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Blythe I like musky rich scents as well but not to overpowering. For those who like strong scents this would be their dream scent

  46. I love trying out different scents! This one sounds amazing and earth-y in a way. I’d love to know a good source of quality perfumes, it’s always easier to shop online!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Carol with all that is going on these days, I definitely prefer to shop online anytime I can

  47. Terri Steffes says:

    I have a friend who is very knowledgeable about fragrance and she loves this scent, too. I agree, the packaging is stunning.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Terri, isn’t the packaging something else? I so loved the way they presented this

  48. Perfume is another one of those areas of my life that is very simple. I have a couple scents that I really love and stick to them. I would love to explore this place though, to bask in the scents.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Claudette ..LOL..I have not changed the perfumes I used in years. I just recently decided to go out and a limb and live a little. So I have been getting samplers from this place and trying to kinda up my game

  49. Kim says:

    I’m so super picky about the scents I wear, it never even occurred to me that someone as familiar as yourself could help me narrow down some great scents!!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Kim I am super picky myself, in fact literally afraid to buy something that I will not be able to tolerate…LOL. I have been wearing the same scent for years…

  50. I love great perfume! It’s been awhile since I’ll been in a fragrance outlet. Thanks for the update.

  51. Amy Jones says:

    I haven’t gotten any new perfumes in a while but this one seems so nice! I really liked the presentation, I wonder how it smells like

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Amy I would get a sampler from the outlet so you can see if it is something you can tolerate.

  52. I just tossed out my one perfume I have had FOREVER because it is starting to smell old! I need to visit Designer Perfumes and experiment with what my new scent will be!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Rachel you had me laughing out loud….too funny. I say this is a great place to start

  53. Elizabeth O. says:

    I normally stick to one perfume for as long as I can. It’s good to try new perfume though. I think this is a great source of perfume and it’s nice to know that you enjoyed one of the fragrances that they offer.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Elizabeth…LOL…me too. Once I like a fragrance I don’t mess with it. I just stick to that, too much hassle to try finding something else

  54. I love perfumes and have a pretty good collection of them. I’d love to check out this site and look at what perfumes they have available.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      @Engineer Mommy if you love perfume then this is a place for you. The good thing is you can order their sample pack if you not too sure if you will like it

  55. I haven’t worn perfume in SO long because of my babies, but WOW! I would love to try a new fragrance, for sure. Always makes me feel beautiful to have on a signature scent.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Chelley so sorry to hear about the babies’ allergies. Yes there is something feminine about a signature scent

  56. Lily and rose sound like they would be wonderful complements. We have a signature perfume that we like to stick with but we so appreciate your review! Xo

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Caitlin I think most of us have a signature perfume, including myself. Now and then I try something new

  57. Robin Rue says:

    I will have to see if they have my favorite fragrance! This one that you got to review sounds like it is a bit strong for me, but I am not giving up hope that I can find a good deal.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Robin as I said in the review, it is strong…LOL…I am sure that you will find something that you like. Just be sure to try to sample pack before you buy a full size bottle

  58. Reesa Lewandowski says:

    I am not a huge perfume person but Fragrance Outlet definitely sounds like the way to go if I ever were to need to purchase one. I will have to check them out.

  59. I love to use a good fragrance for me and also I love when my wife has a good one as well. It doesn’t take much to do a good job with good fragrances.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      William I am always happy to hear the view of a male on my blog. Thanks for stopping by and for taking the time to leave a comment from the other side…LOL

  60. tara pittman says:

    I love that this has lilly in it. That is my favorite scent.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Tara that is really good to hear. I doubt if I would be able to recognize lilly when I smell it…LOL

  61. I don’t wear a lot of perfumes, but it’s mostly because they are so expensive! I will have to browse the Fragrance Outlet since they seem more affordable.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Kecia I am with you. I am not going to buy any perfume that costs me an arm and a leg either. It is not that serious

  62. Nellwyn says:

    I’ve have to try this! I’m recently starting getting more into perfumes in general but hadn’t heard of this brand.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Nellwyn first time I was hearing of that brand as well. I am glad I gave them a try. Just remember it is very strong so just one dab will do.

  63. I like perfumes with a sweet smell. Those are my favorite!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Melanie I like sweet smell, but not overly sweet. The overly sweet ones give me a headache

  64. I have to be so careful when I am sampling new fragrances. I am extremely sensitive to some scents and can end up with a wicked migraine. I am not sure if this is accurate or not but I have heard that scents can “go bad”. Do you know if this is true?

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Heather some scents are definitely too strong for persons with allergies. That is why I usually ask for a sampler before I go and purchase the whole nine yards.

  65. I am happy that you were satisfied with the product you got. When I buy perfume, I don’t usually go by just sniffing, I have to test it on my skin. Nevertheless, I will let my friends know about Fragrance Outlet. They might find something that would interest them. Thanks for the review.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Thank you Annemarie for taking the time to visit. Also for leaving a meaningful comment, much appreciated

  66. Kim says:

    I always assumed outlet perfumes were outdated or no longer sold. This gives me a much better perspective!

  67. karen says:

    Great tips for fragrances… I could spend hours testing out new scents. I rarely do that – but when I need a new perfume I usually spend full price at Sephora. I’ll need to check out better places to get a deal!

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Karen these days wherever I can get quality for a good price then I am there. We have to find ways to spend less but still get great quality

  68. Momina Arif says:

    I like perfumes with a string smell, I don’t mind them at all. And blackcurrant isn’t something you smell on a lot of people, so I really like that

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      Momina it really has an unusual smell. Takes getting used but I like it. I just need to remember to just use a dab at a time…LOL

  69. Based on your review it seems to be very strong, which wouldn’t be suitable for someone like me who has serious migraine issue and a strong smelling perfume won’t do wonders for me but a mild smelling one I can definitely work with. Hope it doesn’t leave a stain on one’s clothes.

    • mardenec@hotmail.com says:

      No stain, but I agree with you. This might not be the best fragrance for persons with migraine issues. As I said in the review, a very small amount will do the job.
