Cheap and Chic is the second feminine perfume from Moschino, arrived on the market in 1995, after their debut fragrance from 1987, called Moschino for women. The Italian fashion house founded in 1983 by Franco Moschino introduced a floral feminine scent, conceived in order to accompany the associated fashion line, bearing the same name.
I’m not focused on the bottle anymore (I had a period when I simply rejected a fragrance based on its bottle!), however I can not help to notice that Cheap and Chic’s flask is odd, to say the least. The color scheme (red and black, with a touch of white) is OK, but the shape of the flacon looks like it is a comic creation and this is also highlighted by the video commercial, exhibiting a cartoon-like story. By way of this carefully constructed image, Moschino wanted to offer an indication with respect to the target group for Cheap and Chic: the young stylish woman, who is always ready to take risks and live a joyful life.
With an olfactory structure that remains faithful to the classic olfactory pyramid, having its top, heart and base notes, the accord of citrus is pretty evident from the outset, offset by a fresh note of water flowers. Then, it gradually makes way for the perfume’s heart of the lavish bouquet made from jasmine, rose, freesia, violet and peony. The dry down happens after a couple of hours and encompasses accords of cedar, sweet vanilla, sensual musk, grey amber and orchid.
