Excuse the dark and dismal photograph at the bottom, but I’m basically snapping away at myself this morning being armed with the brand new Miu Miu Parfum, because I am pretty darn excited to own this new fragrance. (It’s winter, and us bloggers are struggling with natural lighting issues at the moment!). I’m a huge designer fan, but unfortunately I don’t have the designer salary to make me go on regular spending splurges. I own just the one ‘keepsake’ designer handbag as I like to call it, which I look after like a child, and funnily enough it’s a Miu Miu one. So when I heard that Miu Miu were launching a fragrance, I was really excited to check it out as one of my favourite designer brands.
As mentioned a little bit in my Manchester beauty post the other day, House of Fraser Manchester are celebrating the launch of the first ever Miu Miu Eau de Parfum with an exclusive engraving activity. If you pop by House of Fraser between 19th-22nd of November 12-8pm (aware that today is Friday 20th!) and with every purchase of a 50ml Miu Miu fragrance you can have the lid engraved with the initials of your choice – how super cute is that for gifting?
I absolutely love personalised treats, and especially personalised beauty treats too, they are just exactly what girls love. But more importantly, this one is for the boyfriends and the husbands out there struggling what gift to buy for their designer loving, beauty obsessed girlfriends that also have that personalised touch. Come on down guys – it will give you so many boyfriend points to take you into 2016.
And whilst I’m onto the topic of this new fragrance, the first Miu Miu scent really does captures the spirit of the brand. The sensual, soft blue-pillowed opaque glass is reminiscent of Miu Miu’s signature matelassé with a translucent red disk looking simultaneously traditional and pop. The fragrance is a combination of lily of the valley and akigalawood, giving off natural and timeless tones in a very contemporary way. I love it, it doesn’t disappoint me at all, and I’ll be feeling all ‘Miu Miu’ esque when I spritz myself with this and grab my bag, heading off for the day ahead.
Let me know if you manage to pop down and check it out!
