Betsey Johnson Too Too Eau de Parfum Review

Betsey Johnson's Too Too Eau de Parfum is inspired by her "love of dance and her passion for flirty fashion. Too Too is a fun, fresh perfume targeting the 'it girl', who is youthful and effervescent.". I received a 2ml sample of Too Too in a swap with my friend Mariah, who got the sample in her Birchbox. Too Too is available for sale in three sizes;  a .3oz Rollerball ($18), 1fl oz Fragrance Spray ($42), and 1.7fl oz Fragrance Spray ($62). Betsey Johnson perfumes can be bought through the brand's website, Betsey Johnson boutiques, Sephora, and select department stores. Betsey Johnson does not test on animals. This fragrance was made in America. 
Too Too Eau de Parfum has beautiful packaging, even the sample. The sample is great, it comes in an itsy bitsy spray bottle, as opposed to those terrible little vials! The sample comes in a floral and zebra print cardboard envelope with a caricature of the perfume bottle on the front. The back of the envelope offers a short description of the fragrance, ingredients, and a little bit of company info. The actual perfume bottle is really unique, it looks like a dress and even has a meshy fishnet material covering the bottom of the bottle. The bottle was inspired by an ornament that Betsey found as a child and represents her "childhood dreams and fashion ambitions".  The packaging is playful but still luxurious, the story behind it is cute too. 
 My sample of Betsey Johnson's Too Too is very small, but I've got a ton of use from it! There was about a week when I wore Too Too exclusively. I also wore it on and off for the last couple months, and I still have about a quarter left. I think that should give testament to the quality of Betsey Johnson's perfumes. As much as I hate to splurge on expensive products, I really think designer and prestige perfumes are the way to go. Their depth and lasting power is almost always far superior to cheaper fragrances. Anyway, what good is a review of Too Too if you don't know what it smells like.
 Betsey Johnson's Too Too is essentially floral. I would venture as far as calling it a powdery floral. Thus fragrance is described as a "vibrant scent comprised of sweet passion fruit, sparkling mandarin, ginger and strawberry leaves spun together with an underlying delicate pink musk that suggests femininity and warmth. To round it out, jasmine, Bulgarian rose, patchouli, sandalwood, and vanilla add just the right touch of radiance." Betsey says that Too Too "conveys the free spirit of today's sexy, modern girl who is playful, cool, and flirtatious." Oh Betsey, don't flatter me! You didn't have to create a whole scent inspired by me. (lulz) Too Too is quite strong initially, but it dries down to a very soft scent that stays close to the skin. Too Too, to me, smells mostly of a sweet, slightly musky mix of jasmine and rose with a hint of a vanilla, sandalwood, and mandarin blend that you catch right at the end of a whiff. Too Too is warm, but still girly and young. I  feel like this isn't the most unique scent though. Like, from what I know about Betsey Johnson, she's kinda out there, but Too Too definitely isn't. I feel like Too Too is the kind of scent that Victoria's Secret could make. I wish it had a bit more complexity.
Betsey Johnson's Too Too Eau de Parfum is a nice, feminine, softly floral scent. I really enjoy wearing this fragrance, which is unusual for me, I'm not typically into floral scents. Too Too is expensive, but it's on the more affordable end for a designer perfume. The wear time is better than what I'm used to. The packaging is intricate and pretty, definitely something you'd expect from this brand, but you're definitely paying for packaging. Take a whiff of Betsey Johnson's Too Too on your next trip to Sephora. It's not the most interesting scent you'll find there, but it's pleasant. I might buy the somewhat reasonably priced rollerball in the future.
