A flanker in name only
It's a flanker of Red Door in name only, so don't let that put you off ...

Red Door Velvet is a sweet musky fragrance that really does remind me of velvet. It wears similar ot SJP Lovely on me. One of the key differences between Velvet & Lovely (and her sisters, like NR Her): Velvet has a more organic, sweet, earthy musk, whereas Lovely a more synthetic, pink plastic dollhead musk. Velvet & Lovely are smell-alikes on me after the 30-minute mark. However, Velvet is a bit too sweet & oppressing to wear in the summer, whereas Lovely is wearable in heat. Red Door Velvet in best in winter.

Unfortunately, my husband thinks Velvet smells like a candle store. Haha, our entire home smells like a candle store. I'll wear Velvet anyway. I think it's one of the best in class mass-market musks, although it won't be loved by everyone.

Red Door with a touch of sensual velvet
There isn't really any comparison between this scent and the original Red Door. If you disliked Red Door, I urge you not to dismiss this fragrance.

The fragrance itself is quite musky, but nicely done. I think Red Door Velvet is more of a floral than a fruity scent. The bergamot in the opening is so subtle that you would have missed it entirely had you not been informed of its presence.

I was actually both shocked and pleasantly surprised by how expensive-smelling and sophisticated this fragrance is. The scent has a certain richness and warmth that exudes class.

The lasting strength was quite good I found, certainly better lasting than Red Door.

I won't say that this fragrance is better than Red Door, because in my opinion they both smell lovely when worn by the right person, however I'll admit that this fragrance would most likely be the more popular choice over the original.

For something deep, rich and unique from the Elizabeth Arden fragrance range, I would definitely recommend.
