About this deal

Do I like Delina? In short, yes. I love rosy perfumes, even those that might be better suited for older ladies. There’s something feminine and elegant about Delina that makes me feel graceful, attractive, and well taken care of. I’d almost say it was comforting. Delina Exclusif starts off with notes of litchi, pear, and bergamot so there are some similarities but not enough to confuse the two. Following that, there is rose, incense and, one of my personal favorite notes, oud. This gives it something of a more luxurious, Oriental vibe that’s nothing like Delina. The base notes consist of vanilla, amber, and woody notes so it stays just as warm and sweet as it dries down. There is still something of a maturity about Delina Exclusif, but it’s nowhere near as prominent as Delina. I think for women over the age of around 25, this would make a perfect, elegant signature scent. The Winner: Delina Vs. Delina Exclusif In fact, having been released a year after Delina, but by the same perfumer, you could be forgiven for thinking the two weren’t even related. I think it’s pretty obvious by now which of these fragrances I prefer. The crown has to go to Delina Exclusif. It’s just got that something special that makes it feel as though you’re wearing a luxurious gown, gliding through an Oriental palace.

I can’t say that I agree entirely but I can see their point. Rosy notes have long been associated with older ladies and that’s OK. There’s a market for every fragrance but if you’re a lot younger, this might be a little ahead of your time. However, that mature character is softened slightly by the tang of rhubarb which, for me, really balances things out.The fact that it is such an expensive fragrance also often makes people find themselves not wanting to like it so much. The top notes are litchi, bergamot, nutmeg, and rhubarb, while the rosy notes are at the heart along with peony, musk, petalia, and vanilla. But the sheer strength of the rose has caused a lot of people to say that this is more of a grandma’s perfume. It is a little pricier but, as I’ve mentioned, you get a great performance out of it and it’s versatile, so I don’t think you’d be wasting your money.

If you have already tried Delina and been put off by the ‘old lady’ smell then don’t be deterred from trying Delina Exclusif just yet. While there are still obvious rosy notes, they’re far less in your face and this feels like a much warmer, more youthful version of the original fragrance. However there are some Delina alternatives out there, most notably from dupe houses who specialize in creating a clone of Delina alongside other perfumes from luxury brands.But what surprises me is that, while the bottle gives the impression of a youthful, fun-loving perfume, what you find inside is a stark contrast. You see, Delina is a much more mature fragrance that’s bursting with rose accords. It’s a bit of an exaggeration, I know but I like the idea that perfume can transport you to another way of life, if only for a moment. But Delina Exclusif doesn’t only last a moment since it’s so strong and that’s another reason why it is my winner. Delina is a floral fragrance with a mature personality that’s better suited to slightly older women. On the contrary, Delina Exclusif is slightly more youthful but still elegant enough to be worn by all ages and this is thanks to warmer, less intense notes. I’ve heard a lot of people talking about how many compliments both perfumes get so I guess it’s really a matter of personal taste.
