Revlon Parfumerie Wednesday

Hello everyone! Today I have a selection of Revlon polishes, specifically from their newest Parfumerie line. These, as I understand, are not limited edition polishes. I found my bottles at a local Bed, Bath, and Beyond but they look like they will be available wherever Revlon cosmetics are sold. 

As you may have guessed, since the line is named Parfumerie, these are scented polishes. After the polish has dried, the scent comes about. The scents are not super strong but definitely noticeable. I wore China Flower for an afternoon and could smell it the whole while. I lovelovelove the packaging for these, the bottle shaped are unique to my collection and fit quite nicely in my Helmer. 

Revlon Parfumerie Autumn Spice
Two coats
Brown base with gold and orange shimmer. 
It looks less brown in the bottle than on the nail, even with that, I really love how this looks. Very rich and rustic looking. 
Scent is exactly as it is called, a little spiced, a little cinnamon like. 


Revlon Parfumerie Italian Leather
Two coats
Dusky khaki gray with gold shimmer. 
I don't always like this type of color but somehow it's working for me. The scent though, it's my least favorite. It's more sweet than leather like.


Revlon Parfumerie Surf Spray
Three coats
Very light ocean blue with flashes of pink. 
This one is the most sheer, I needed three coats for full coverage. 
The scent is fresh, a bit like a crisply scented soap bar. 


Revlon Parfumerie Wild Violets
Two coats
Very deep and dark purple with slight navy shimmer. I like the color but not love. I am sure I have a dupe of the color somewhere in my stash, so this is kept more for the packaging more than color. 
This one has a floral scent, of violets I guess, but it's hard to distinguish a specific floral note. 


Revlon Parfumerie Bordeaux
Two coats
Rich berry creme
This color is definitely one I like, it's cool in tone but bright, not too vampy. 
It has a fruity red wine scent, which is appropriate lol. 


Revlon Parfumerie China Flower
Two coats
Bright coral red creme
Such a vibrant color! Of course this red one is my favorite, another one that while yes, I more than likely have a dupe of, I will hold on to it for now. 
The scent is weird, it's floral but also very earthy, almost mossy.
