But it's not just the bottle that has made these fragrances so popular, it's the scent inside them that is the real star of the show. And Carolina Herrera Good Girl Legere is no different.

The Legere edition of Good Girl was released recently in 2018, and has been a hit ever since it hit the shelves. Like all fragrances in the Good Girl lineup, Legere is inspired by the "power of modern femininity", and this is translated into the fragrance itself.

Keep reading for our full run-down and review of the fragrance.

What does it smell like?

The new Legere edition of Good Girl is a lighter, fresher take on the original. It's notes focus on two key ingredients: Jasmine & Tonka.

True to the original (and indeed all perfumes in the collection) Carolina Herrera Legere features base notes of Cinnamon, Sandalwood, and decadent praline.

This particular set of base notes means that Legere is still classed as an Oriental Fragrance for women, one that is incredibly popular among perfumer lovers.

Here's the full fragrance breakdown for Carolina Herrera Good Girl Legere:

Fragrance Breakdown
Top Mandarin Orange, Lemon, Bergamot
Heart Jasmine, Tuberose, Bulgarian Rose
Base Dulce de Leche, Praline, Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Amber, Musk

As you can see, the fragrance notes of the entire perfume are all absolutely divine. The combination of more oriental scents like Cinnamon and Sandalwood, combined with the light notes of Jasmine and Bulgarian rose, truly make this a perfume representing modern femininity. 

The opening notes of Mandarin Orange and Lemon create a dazzling start to the fragrance, almost like a disco of freshness, before the gentler floral notes come through in the heart of the perfume.

Speaking of the florals, they play a big part in the olfactory of the fragrance. While the Jasmine & Tonka are the key point of difference compared to the other Good Girl fragrances in the collection, there can be no mistaking that this is indeed a Good Girl fragrance.

It stays true to the whole lineup by showcasing these floral notes through the tropical feel of Ylang-ylang and gorgeous Bulgarian Rose. These bold florals are then tempered with the much softer notes of Jasmine, Sambac, and Vanilla. 

The result is a perfume that is bold, but at the same time gentle. Something that will be noticed, without drawing too much attention. 

Iconic bottles aside, it is this masterpiece in perfume making that has made the Carolina Herrera Good Girl lineup of fragrances such a sensation.

Final Thoughts

If you are a fan of the original Carolina Herrera Good Girl fragrance, then there will be nothing for you not to like in the new Legere edition. It provides the same outstanding performance & longevity of roughly 5-7 hours, all while staying true to the floral notes of the original. 

The new Legere edition simply takes those bold floral notes, and introduces a softer, gentler undertone of Jasmine, Tonka, and Vanilla.

If you loved the original Good Girl, but found it a little "too much" for use in some situations, then perhaps the Legere fragrance is exactly what you need.

You'll still get a fantastic fragrance from a brand that has become synonymous with quality women's perfumes, and you'll have a new high-heel stiletto bottle for your collection.

The artistic beauty of these bottles alone is worth getting your hands on one.
