What Does Sofia Vergara Love Eau De Parfum Smell Like?

The first sniff  of this eau de parfum is ultra sweet and the opening downright saccharine. The initial spray fills the air with a beautiful fruity-floral scent. 

You’ll get a rich blend of crisp green apple, orange blossom, Mandarin orange, and passion fruit and just a tiny bit of cough syrup.

The heart notes then start to lean on blossoms; you can detect the sweet jasmine scent—which is actually the purple orchid. 

In the base notes, the fragrance finally settles with the relaxing aroma of sensual wood, as well as the yummy praline and vanilla.

With its citrusy hints, Love smells good and is definitely an ideal accompaniment for a beautiful woman. The coffee note is almost nonexistent, and there’s barely a whiff of brown sugar or cappuccino. 

In the background, there’s a fresh, powdery scent going on.

Imagine you’re dining in a garden that is bursting with blossoms. It’s as if the floral notes are being mixed with a bowl of dark fruits. 

Once it dries on your skin, you get a sultry and creamy fragrance. Overall, it smells great—sweet and edible.

How Long Does Sofia Vergara Love Eau De Parfum Last For?

Although it’s an eau de parfum, it has weak to moderate longevity as well as moderate sillage. You can smell the perfume strongly in the first 30 minutes, then it weakens. 

It lingers for four to six hours. 

It’s the sort of fragrance you need to bring with you when you’re going to be out the whole day so you can reapply it. 

When Should You Wear It?

Fall and winter are the best seasons to wear this. It’s an everyday scent, so there’s no specific best time. 

It can still work in summer and spring, but it won’t smell as dominant.

Where Should You Wear It?

This luscious aroma is best worn on a casual, romantic date. It’s not a come-hither smell, even with the wood notes. It symbolizes a woman’s life filled with love.  

The perfume smells floral, fruity,  playful, and sugary and this heady concoction is lovely if you want to smell good at your workplace.

You can confidently wear this eau de parfum in small, tight spaces as it is not too astringent. You can wear this to the theater, at the grocery store, or on any of your regular errands.

Presentation and Value For Money

Shaped like a Colombian emerald, it’s one of the prettiest perfume bottles around. 

It’s black at the top then blends into pink. The gradient color palette is sexy and feminine and would look great on your dresser.

The eau de parfum comes in either a small bottle (50ml) or in a larger 100ml bottle. For a celebrity scent that costs under $30, it’s great value for money, but it still smells like an expensive perfume.  

The Bottom Line

This will delight fans of sweet floral fragrances and it will quickly become one of your favorite perfumes. 

Unfortunately, those seeking the smell of coffee notes will be disappointed. While the heart notes include Colombian coffee blossom, you’ll only get a hint of cappuccino. 

The lack of coffee smell is due to the fact that Colombian coffee blossom is not supposed to smell like café Americano. 

The natural smell is citrusy and fruity, with jasmine. And the smell of vanilla and brown sugar is faint. 

In essence, it’s a beautiful scent for a beautiful woman.

Reasons to get it:

  • You need a pleasant date scent;
  • You enjoy sweetly floral and green apple scents mixed with Mandarin orange; and
  • You’re looking for an affordable first perfume.
