Some Pretty Fragrances For Your Vanity

September 15, 2008
Emilio Pucci ‘Vivara’ Eau de Parfum Limited Edition Bottle ($88)
A cheeky fragrance with hints of the Italian Riviera that awakens the senses and the imagination in a limited-edition silver bottle. Vivara has the apparent simplicity of a Pucci print, but this green floral is actually multifaceted, playful and vibrant. Galbanum adds a green, light note which today gives the fragrance its playful air.

Top notes: galbanum, bergamot from Italy, amaretto. Heart notes: sambac jasmine, orange flower, narcissus flower. Base notes: vetiver, Indonesian patchouli. “

I love Pucci prints–I have a pair of MASSIVE Pucci snow boots that I whip out every opportunity that I get. While I thought the original mushroomy-looking Pucci Vivara bottle couldn’t be improved upon, I’m happy to admit I was wrong. This sleeker limited edition version would look stunning on my vanity! If only I were more fond of the fragrance itself…

Harajuku Lovers Coffret Solids ($60)
“Five new fragrances, each with their own scent and style. Inspired by the electric street scene of the Harajuku shopping district in Tokyo, the Harajuku Lovers collection captures the lyrics and iconography from Gwen Stefani’s albums. A fatal attraction to cuteness.

Love is super cute and frilly; a floral bouquet. Lil’ Angel is sassy and sexy; a citrus floral. Music is tough with attitude; a fruity floral. Baby is girly and sweet; a powdery floral. G is the leader of the pack! A fruity gourmand.”

Remember my review of Lil’ Angel (here)? While I wasn’t completely enamored of these fragrances thanks to the strong initial burst of alcohol, I’m thinking it’s very unlikely that the solids will smell like alcohol so definitely check them out. I saw these during my last Nordstrom visit and they’re too cute for words!
