I’m not sure what I was trying to achieve with this picture. It is a New York city skyline but yeah, the perfume is perched on a cardboard box. I never said I was a photographer.
Mummy BeautyMecca was given SJP’s Lovely scent for Christmas a couple of years ago and we did not get along (not me and Mummy BeautyMecca, we get along famously. Ish. Most of the time. Now I live in another country.) too sweet and cloying for me, but this bad boy is something altogether different. It’s a fruity floral, as is my preference, but it dries down into something altogether rounder and richer and almost hot. I’m not a perfume expert so I’m not going to pretend to understand the notes but it reminds me of summer holidays when I was wee and wandering around markets in Spain in the midsummer sun.
I can’t say I’m totally bowled over by the packaging but given that my favourite is the Coco Mademoiselle Chanel eau de parfum bottle, you can probably tell I’m a little more low key in my design aesthetics. And I’m devastated that the solid scent is hidden this cuff as it’s just something I wouldn’t wear. I’m not big with the wrist adornment but I’m huge with solid scents. Mummy BeautyMecca maybe. And I think she’ll love this scent too so I’ll be picking up a bottle to go on her birthday present pile.
So I’ll be happily stashing this away in my handbag for summer spritzes, while I waltz around New York City, pretending to be Carrie Bradshaw (seasons one through six).
