Beautiful COTY Watch, Sold with Fragrances
I love beautiful watches. I've collected a few throughout the years. Recently I found another one I liked:
I was walking in Edgars and saw this striking watch. Inside a fragrance gift pack that is. That watch looks casual yet cool, and grand enough for the office.
So I bought the COTY watch, sold in a gift pack with GRAVITY Cologne Spray and Deodorant Spray.
It says "COTY" on the watch face. Just who is "Coty" you may ask.
Well, it would appear Coty is an fragrance company. For more information about this fragrance company, see http://www.coty.com/#/about_coty . Here are some brag lines of theirs:
Through astute acquisitions and licensing partnerships, Coty Inc. has achieved a leadership position in fragrance and has quickly emerged as a leading global beauty company with sales of nearly $4 billion for the year ended June 30, 2010.
...And it's been doing so for over 100 years. All over the world.
With offices in more than 30 countries and a strong presence in 90 markets, Coty successfully brings to market its brands faster, further and freer than most other beauty companies. Our brands transcend borders and boundaries.
Ah good, now I know whose name is written on my watch's face. It's a fragrance company.
Anyway, having purchased that, when I got home I put on the watch. The watch is beautiful and I had to look at it at least once every now and then.
Be cautious though if you plan on giving this to someone as a gift, perhaps to your brother or guy friend or boyfriend or boss or father, please note possible drawbacks:
1. Not sure if the president of Coty has actually tried on the watch, because his picture on their website shows him as a rather biggish guy and the wrist strap on this watch is so short, I can fit it only on the last hole and then the end won't go into the smaller fold-in band. It also sits there tight, so don't crave for your arm to breathe if you plan on wearing this watch. Yes, this is a huge round watch face with a short little wrist strap.
2. My watch is so beautiful, but mine's short hand is slightly off. For example, say it shows exactly 6:00, then the long hand is pointing at 12 exactly but the short hand is juuuuuuust short of the 6. I hate that!! I wish I saw that in the shop so I could look for one that might have been better. Too late now I guess. This of course could drive perfectionists crazy!!!
All in all, I do love this watch. In fact, I'm wearing it right now! There's something striking about the design of the watch face that just hooked me from day one. But I guess you got that part :)
And the fragrances that came with it? What can be said about the fragrances?
I applied them to my person this morning. I like it!
If you're used to very strongly perfumated smells, as many cologne deodorants come, or Jean Paul Gaultier that immediately gives you that delicious smell, don't think these Coty Gravity sprays are like that.
The perfume smell is rather very subtle. I first thought I'm just spraying myself with water spray only, but now I'm starting to like it because you juuuuuuuuuuuuuust catch the scent.
But, of course the fragrances will soon be sprayed up. It's the watch that will last a while, I hope.
By the way, when you purchase it and it's not running, it's not because it needs a battery. Mine had a battery inside, but there's a little white plastic thingy keeping the dial from being pushed in completely. Simply remove this piece of plastic, push the dial into the watch, and it will start running (first set the time of course).
Such a purrdey watch.... awwww.
