When picking a fragrance for travel, you have to really consider your choice. What you spritz will scent your travel wardrobe, so it should work under a number of circumstances! When you're headed to a once in lifetime occasion -- prom, Spring Formal, Debutant Cotillion, Quinceañera, Ring Dance, etc. -- you want a scent that's special and pretty, age-appropriate, light, seasonal. You don't want a strong, musky perfume that turns heads for the wrong reasons. BCBGMaxAzria's Bon Genre will have you smelling delicious and delicate. I was very happy to be hosted to experience it!

"BCBG" is a French slang term standing for "Bon Chic, Bon Genre". Translated, it roughly means "well chic, good family". The smaller parfum spray is in a pretty purple acrylic bottle that's perfect for 3-1-1 carry-on travel bags.

The scent really will last through your whole party! It's a gourmand scent made modern with light floral touches. I noticed juicy fruits including lychee, as well as vanilla flower touches. It dries down soft, with a touch of spice. This is how they describe it:

Inspired by the effortlessly cool sensibility of the urban rocker, BCBGMAXAZRIA presents Bon Genre, a fragrance infused with cutting-edge style. Feminine and daring, this is a sensual, melodic experience that will captivate.

Iconic sculptural cap.
Top notes: lychee and red berries with spicy black pepper, bergamot.
Mid and drydown: jasmine noir, tuberose, cardamom, tiger lily, amber, sandalwood, patchouli, black vanilla.
