The Diesel Loverdose Eau de Parfum 30ml £32 is my absolute favourite fragrance of all time, and I’ve repurchased it countless times since it launched but I’ve never actually dedicated a post to it, I decided it was high time I did. Diesel Loverdose is a play on words, and can be seen as being ‘Lover Dose’ or ‘Love Overdose’ and allegedly possesses molecules that stimulate hypothalamus, the part of the brain responsible for attraction and lust. I would describe Loverdose as being my signature scent, and I just love it. I’ve tried the other versions of Loverdose which have launched in the last few years such as Loverdose Red Kiss and Tattoo but I really don’t like them – it’s the original for me.
Notes wise, Loverdose is a spicy floral with opening notes of star anise and mandarin, the heart notes consist of sambac jasmine, licorice and gardenia petals and finally a base of amber, vanilla and woods. I love the spicy and sweetness of the fragrance, and it’s quite strong so I only do one spray for daytime but use a couple for the evening as it can be a little overpowering but it lasts for such a long time on the skin, and it lingers in my hair until I next wash it.
I would describe Diesel Loverdose as being a sweeter, less woody version of Thierry Mugler Alien which is another of my all time favourite fragrances.. I love them both, but I think Loverdose wins as I find it a little less heady.
Whenever I wear this perfume, I always get complimented.. it’s just a stunning fragrance and I will always repurchase it as I can’t be without it. Whenever I don’t know which fragrance to wear, I always go for Loverdose as it’s just divine. If you like fragrances such as Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb, YSL Black Opium or Thierry Mugler Alien or Angel, I really do think you’ll love Loverdose. Not only is the fragrance itself beautiful, I love the purple faceted heart shaped bottle and it really stands out within my fragrance collection.
