It was the first time I try any of Thierry Mugler‘s fragrances, and believe me this one is SUPER!

A mischievous and delicious new interpretation of Angel, Eau Sucrée is an invitation to indulge in pure gourmand pleasure. It is described as being “A new ode to indulgence”.

The composition begins with juicy, tangy and frosted red berries sorbet. The heart includes a new gourmand accord of caramelized meringue cream. The final touch is oriental and sensual thanks to notes of patchouli and vanilla. The perfume is developed by Dorothee Piot.

The packaging is inspired by vintage confectionery and it evokes memories of childhood with its blue – white candy striped. The pearly star-shaped bottle is sprinkled with glitter that reminiscent of sugar. Available as 50 ml Eau de Toilette.

I also found out that the French gourmet food brand Fauchon has developed a limited edition éclair honoring Thierry Mugler‘s limited edition fragrance, Angel Eau Sucrée.

The new Fauchon éclair, named for Thierry Mugler‘s Angel, offers an exquisite union between two senses: smell and taste. At its center, the crunchy cake contains a bitter chocolate and almond praline, which contrasts with the Madagascar vanilla cream, accented by a touch of lemon and caramel.

It was a nice visit, I got the chance to test their scrubs, smell their perfumes and soaps and what captured me the most wast the shining and glittery products, like the Lustre Dusting powder that has a gold shimmer giving the skin a light glow.

Manifesto!


This is not a written nor a verbal manifesto, it’s a one of a kind manifesto declaring the intentions of every lady who’s wearing it, each one by her own way…

Did you guess what it is?

It’s the new fragrance by Yves Saint Laurent!

manifesto

 

Manifesto, created by perfumes Flipo and Doc Long, is YSL’s first major feminine release since Parisienne in 2009, described as “an attitude, a burst of laughter, a tone of voice, a presence”. 

A bouquet of jasmine punctuated by green notes and a bold trail combining wood, vanilla and tonka beans are the signature of this new declaration of femininity.

It’s smell is strong at first but it gets lighter showing floral and vanilla scents.

Jessica Chastain looks stunning in the ad and the handsome gentleman too!

Take a look 😉

 

Poppy Blossom – A fragrance by Coach!


I got this lovely fragrance “Poppy Blossom as a birthday gift from a dear friend of mine (V. you really shouldn’t have), the squared red box is so fresh with all the writings in white and Gold.

I couldn’t recognize which brand it was, that’s because i’m not familiar with the brand Coach. Are you?

So I did my research, and here’s a bit about the brand:

Coach was founded in 1941 as a family-run workshop. In a Manhattan loft, six artisans handcrafted a collection of leather goods using skills handed down from generation to generation. Discerning consumers soon began to seek out the quality and unique nature of Coach craftsmanship.

During the last decade, Coach has emerged as America’s preeminent designer, producer, and marketer of fine accessories and gifts for women and men including handbags, men’s bags, women’s and men’s small leather-goods  weekend and travel accessories, footwear, watches, outerwear, scarves, sun-wear  fragrance, fine jewelry and related accessories. Continued development of new categories has further established the signature style and distinctive identity of the Coach brand.

Coach’s distribution strategy is multi-channel. As of June 30, 2012, there were over 500 Coach stores in the United States and Canada, and over 300 directly-operated locations in Japan, China, Singapore and Taiwan, with additional retail locations in Malaysia and South Korea acquired in July and August, 2012.

Poppy Blossom, the fruity, floral gourmand perfume is a cocktail of unique (and delicious) notes including cucumber flower petals, crème brûlée, red candied rose petals, and whipped marshmallow.

The result is a fresh and flirty aroma that will most definitely have people demanding to know what you’re wearing.

Plus the bottle is so adorable, the bottle plug is engraved with the same writings as on the box, with a red bow around… So cute!

I think that this fragrance could be perfect for both casual and formal use.

Have you seen this fragrance before? Are you familiar with it? Would like to know if you have it and from where you got it 😉 

“Love Fury” by Nine West


One of my favorite shoes brands “Nine West” has launched its first woman fragrance “Love Fury”!

Image

Nine West “Love Fury” is a seductive blend of fresh fruits, lush florals, warm woods and addictive amber.

The fragrance is a powerful weapon of attraction. An elixir of pure seduction. It is contagious, intoxicating, mysterious & sexy 😉

I liked the design of the glass bottle and the black cap that replicates the heel of a shoe!

Not only they released this stylish fragrance, but to satisfy shoes addicts they released a “Love Fury” heel 😉

It is available in three different colors; Navy shimmer, Pewter shimmer and Pink shimmer.

You might not be the type that likes flashy, blingy colors, but this pair is unique, because of its pointy toe platform that makes it trendy and classy at the same time. It takes you back to princess stories of your childhood…

It might not be the most practical pump ever, you might not be able to wear it more often, depending on your style, but I’m sure you’ll fall in love with it, and it’ll become a must-have item in your closet!

 

Both items available in Lebanon, so hurry up Fashionistas 😉
