Mary Kay Affection Review

Mary Kay describes this product as "pure luxury in a bottle" and I totally agree. This perfume is classified as "oriental" and it has definite amber undertones. The fragrance is complex and I could detect layers of wood, pink peppercorn and some type of patchouli. I sprayed this perfume twice, once directly on my skin and then a second time after I was dressed. The aroma lingered all day and my husband loves it.

Affection is reminiscent of Calvin Klein's Obsession, only a little sweeter. My mother commented that it reminded her of Taboo by Dana. Mary Kay has a real hit with this perfume. I love the scent and plan to use it on special romantic occasions with my husband. It is a bit heavy for wearing to work but perfect when you want to make an entrance.

While I love this fragrance, it is a bit pricey. It only comes in a 1 fluid ounce bottle and the price is $50 USD.


My Mary Kay Affection review resulted in a new, personal favorite fragrance. I like this sensual, romantic scent. I think it makes a perfect fall/winter aroma.
