EXCLUSIVE FOR FRAGRANCE OUTLET: Bamboo for Women from Franck Olivier

Hi there, my darlings! Isn't it amazing how very much like our mothers we women become, as we grow older? There are so many things I have common with mine. Just to name a few, we both love people, we both can talk your ear off and we both love beauty products. My mom is a beautiful woman and she's taught my sister and I from a very young age to never hesitate to treat yourself well--to be careful with our money but never to deny ourselves those material things that make us happy. And one of the things that makes my mother and, almost by default, me happy are fine fragrances. We both are a little bit obsessed with perfume! But, that obsession can be expensive and I'm always looking for a good deal to score a luxury fragrance at an affordable price. That's why I was so thrilled when I came across  Fragrance Outlet! Not only do they have a huge number of brick-and-mortar stores all across the US but they recently just launched a new online site so you can order your faves from the comfort of your home!

Here's a little bit about them:

Founded in 1990, The Fragrance Outlet, Inc. owns and operates over 100 Fragrance Outlet and Designer Fragrances stores. Our first store, Fragrance Outlet, made its debut in November 1990 in Potomac Mills Mall, just outside of Washington, D.C.

The concept for Fragrance Outlet was simple – offer the widest selection of genuine designer fragrances, sold by knowledgeable, friendly staff at affordable prices. The formula was foolproof, and the store was an overwhelming success. Throughout the next few years, Fragrance Outlet expanded its presence in the fragrance market, opening stores in the best Outlet Centers across the country and Guam. Fragrance Outlet, Inc. continues to grow with expansion plans exceeding 100 stores over the next several years.

Now, The Fragrance Outlet is prepared to build upon its successful foundation and provide our loyal customer base with an online venue for purchasing designer fragrances at affordable prices – without ever leaving the comfort of home. We’re bringing the Fragrance Outlet shopping experience right to your computer for the utmost convenience. 

It doesn’t matter whether you frequent us in your favorite outlet center, or visit us online while at home or in the office. The Fragrance Outlet, family of brands will be there to meet your fragrance shopping needs, anytime, anyplace.

For my very first review of their site, I was offered an unique fragrance from Franck Olivier-- Bamboo for Women. Now, I'll be the first to admit that, despite being a true lover of perfumes, I hadn't heard of the brand or the scent. But a quick search later, I found that this fragrance is an exclusive, available only at Fragrance Outlet online and in every Fragrance Outlet Store. Let's just say my interest was definitely piqued!

First of all, let's take a minute to discuss the care Fragrance Outlet took in my package. Not only was the shipping box sturdy and stuffed well with tissue, but the perfume itself was beautifully packaged and tied with a ribbon, as the very first picture shows. This kind of attention to detail when it comes to packaging always makes an online retailer stand out to me--not only are such purchases perfect for gifts but it just feels just as good if it's a well-deserved treat for yourself!

Before we get into my thoughts, here's a description of the fragrance itself:

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.


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

I'm a girl who loves her florals, as I keep saying over and over. A sweet, floral scent gets me every time! But this scent isn't as sweet as many of the florals out there...it's different. It's slightly muskier without being too intense and carries a hint of spiciness that's quite alluring. I was surprised by just how much I loved it! I spritzed on a little bit on my wrists just before I went to bed a couple of nights and woke up with the scent still lingering on my pulse points and my pillow. After that, this beautiful, etched-glass bottle has become a well-loved addition to my vanity!

So there you have it, my darlings! If you would like to add Bamboo by Franck Olivier to your stash or pick it up for a loved one, you can find it at a great price on Fragrance Outlet online HERE. You save up to 25% off retail prices and shipping is free over $50. Such a great deal!

  6. An extraordinary spot to discover quality Kerry Washington Skin Care restorative products. One motivation behind why it's significantly less expensive thought about retail locations is a direct result of less assessment or, for some markdown beauty products, none by any means.
