Signature for Her by David Victoria Beckham is a Chypre Floral fragrance for women. Signature for Her was launched in 2008. The nose behind this fragrance is Sylvie Fischer. Top notes are star anise and green apple; middle notes are orchid, heliotrope and vanilla; base notes are patchouli, amber and musk.
SIGNATURE by Victoria Beckham is another variation of a popular fruity floral gourmand theme with an attempt to make it more grown-up and elegant. Pleasant, polite and nice are the words I would use to describe this juice. The fragrance opens with the sharp green apple and anise. This mixture is rather unusual. I think some reviewers perceive it as a bit masculine. I would describe it as aromatic and sour. Then the fragrance softens as it interacts with my skin revealing the fragrant anise mixed with the shy orchids. I have to say that the orchids in general are hit and miss for me but in this fragrance they are elegant. The fragrance continues towards the sweeter gourmand end when the heliotrope and vanilla come into play. The scent stays in the gourmand territory with musky vanilla and orchids in the dry down. The lasting power and sillage are medium. SIGNATURE for her seems to get quite mixed reviews here but I find it quite pleasant and enjoyable to wear. (This review is for EDT)
Another wonderful creation from Beckham! I can pick out the individual notes but to me it all blends to smell like vibrant berries with an underlying sweetness and the musk adding softness. Or at least that's how I like to think of it being a berry fan. I don't smell any anise which is great because I'm NOT an anise fan and had my doubts with anise being one of the first notes listed. After the initial burst Signature steadies with a bit more musk, but not too much, the main notes remain strong for some time. Good lasting power. Really glad to have it! Thanks Triplex for sending this my way! :D
I was surprised to find how much I liked Beckham Signature for Her. I had sniffed the other Beckham scents and did not care for them. This one is a notch above those, both in price and in the quality of the fragrance. It opens with a sweet candy/licorice note, and dries down to a soft incensey-patchouli aroma. Some reference points that might help: smells like Hillary Duff With Love stacked on the Cabaret de Gres drydown. If you enjoy other anise/licorice fragrances like Lolita Lempicka, With Love Hillary Duff or Aqualina's Pink Sugar or Blue Sugar (all favorites of mine), this perfume will be right up your alley. It's not a particularly original scent, but it is a nice one. Good staying power, too.
