Boadicea The Victorious Regal Eau De Parfum Spray &hellip by Boadicea The Victorious
4.0 out of 5 stars A Regal Scent, 19 Jan 2014
Although marketed as a unisex scent by the makers themselves, I feel Boadicea the Victorious' Regal is more suitable for men. It is a luxurious scent with base Animalic notes including Sandalwood, Patchouli Paraguay, Cedarwood and Amber. The mid notes include geranium, rose, jasmin, violet absolute,and saffron with fruity green top notes. All of these mingled with passion to create this powerful and rather seductive scent.

Regal is a spicy oriental scent which lasts for hours longer than most perfumes, easily 6 hours plus. The packaging is also very luxurious as well as the bottle both of which were obviously not cheap to design and produce.

Paisa Vasool is about Maria who runs a bakery and has somehow been left the bakery and the building it's housed in by the previous owner and Baby an aspiring actress who meets Maria at a nightclub and they decide to move in together. They overhear a phone conversation about a jewellery robbery and decide to blackmail the crook into giving them half of the money from the heist. Unfortunately things aren't as easy as they imagined especially as neither of these women are criminals or have much idea of what lengths the crooks will go to keep their loot.

Sadly this Manisha Koirala production didn't do her or Sushmita Sen any favours as the leading ladies in the film. There is a lot… Read more
