When I heard that Prince was launching a fragrance, called 3121, I viewed it more as an entertaining novelty than as a perfume I'd actually want to wear. I mean, I love Prince and all, but I've never had much desire to smell like him.
However, I was lucky enough to get an early sample of the perfume, and I have to say, it's really very wearable, refreshing, and — contrary to what you might think from looking at the bottle — not the least bit gaudy.
The 3121 fragrance, which goes on sale 7/7/07, is a very exotic floral blend that's not at all overpowering, and it's light enough for Summertime. It has top notes of bergamot, jasmine, and gardenia and hints of ylang ylang and muguet, creating a bouquet that's as clean as it is complex.
Developed by Prince with Revelations Perfume and Cosmetics, the 3121 collection includes a 100-milliliter ($70) or 30-milliliter eau de parfum spray ($31.21), an Xquisite Perfume purse spray ($52), and Xotic Body Creme ($43).
