Michael Buble By Invitation Rose Gold EDP

By invitation rose gold edition

New Michael Bublé-By-Invitation Rose Gold Fragrance

I dubbed the original By Invitation fragrance from Michael as my favourite discovery of 2016, it was a really sexy fresh scent and encapsulated luxury and so I’m so excited that Michael Bublé is back with a new version, this latest release from Michael is just as luxurious and has a real Spring/Summer feel to it.

If, like me, you often overlook ‘Celebrity Fragrances’ I urge you to give this one a go. Unlike most celebrity endorsed products Michael Bublé himself was actually an integral part of every aspect of both fragrances and I have to say this new Rose Gold edition is something very special and has that touch of glamour and luxury you’d expect from the man himself.

Michael Buble’s new ‘By Invitation Rose Gold’ is a Floral Oriental Gourmand. A charming, feminine fragrance, it’s sensual, glamorous and combines a variety of luxurious warm, floral tones. This fragrance is very charming and elegant and it not only has a very layered, luxurious mix of notes it is a bottle that will look stunning on your vanity.

By Invitation Rose Gold EDP 

This beautiful new By Invitation Rose Gold is a Floral Oriental Gourmand. A charming, feminine fragrance – it’s sensual, glamorous and combines a variety of luxurious warm, floral tones. It’s a tender, modern sophisticated scent and I think it’s an ideal Spring/Summer perfume.

Starting with sophisticated top notes of radiant magnolia, red fruits and Granit pear, By Invitation Rose Gold has the tenderness of a rose and peony heart, with a hint of black plum. With a lingering praline and vanilla base – and just a touch of precious spice – the fragrance is charming and elegant.

This perfume has quite an unusual mix of notes, it’s a Floral Oriental Gourmand so you can make out the sweetness of the pear and red fruits which give it a Summer feel. The beautiful rose and peony give you a familiar fresh and floral scent whilst the black plum, praline and vanilla give it a warm, sweet but sexy twist and I just love the hint of precious spice that adds a very modern layer to this perfume. Your senses are really taken on a scent journey with this perfume and I just love it.

NEW Michael Bublé By Invitation Rose Gold Perfume

We have to discuss the stunning packaging and bottle, both of which have such a luxurious feel to them. The jewellery inspired bottle is a nod to the original By Invitation fragrance, I think this new Rose Gold release has a more contemporary feel as Rose Gold is very on trend.

I really like the way the bottle is suspended in the centre of a metal rose gold circle (which is designed to resemble premium jewellery), it looks extremely sophisticated and very elegant. The perfume also has a soft blush pink tint to it which makes it look very feminine and sexy. The bottle is weighty and there is such a luxurious feel to this design, and I think the bottle is quite unusual for a perfume bottle. You can tell a lot of time and work went into developing both the fragrance and the iconic bottle.

Mother's Day 2018 Perfume Gifts

Mother's Day 2018 Gift Ideas

This year’s Mother’s Day is going to be a special one because my Mum is coming to stay with me in Cornwall and it just so happens to be Mother’s Day whilst she is visiting. It is perfect timing. I don’t get to see my Mum as often as I’d like as she lives over 600 miles away in Scotland and although we talk and Facetime ALOT it just isn’t the same as being together.

So I’m very much looking forward to spoiling her and spending the week showing her all my favourite parts of Cornwall. I have so many day trips planned.

Fragrance Direct Mother's Day Gifts

I really enjoy buying and making my Mum gifts, she is so easy to shop for, but I know just how much she treasures fragrance and doesn’t treat herself to a new bottle of perfume often. So when Fragrance Direct asked if I would like to be part of their #BuyFragranceNotFlowers Mother’s Day Campaign I jumped at the chance because not only will my Mum enjoy the perfume for months to come but it is so much more practical for her to pack in her hand luggage to take back to Scotland on the plane, whereas flowers wouldn’t survive the trip. So this campaign was perfect for us!

Also Fragrance Direct has a lovely selection of Mother’s Day gifts so if you are struggling for ideas you will be spoilt for choice, but I instantly knew which perfume to pick, when you know, you just know, right!?

Top Perfumes For Mothers Day

My Mum and I have very similar tastes when it comes to scents. We like a fragrance that settles into being quite warm and rich, so I had to pick Chloé Signature EDP because I just know my Mum will fall in love with its unique mix of florals and warm woody musk notes. Its one of my all-time favourite perfumes because it is so easy to wear and I never tire of the scent, it always smells beautiful.

It’s such a pretty floral scent and ideal for the change of seasons from Winter to Spring. I like being able to introduce my Mum to new products and Chloé Signature really is the perfect mix of floral, rich and warm notes which for me makes it a great everyday perfume.

  • Top notes of Lychee, Freesia and Peony

  • Heart notes of Lily of the Valley, Rose and Magnolia

  • Base notes of Virginia Cedar and Musk

Chloe Signature Perfume EDP Review

The mix of bold floral notes with the freshness of the lychee and the warm hint of amber make this an Ideal Spring/Summer scent. It is initially quite bold and floral but the layers settle down to be the perfect mix of floral freshness with a sophisticated woody, warm twist.

Perfume bottles for me are almost as important as the scent inside, I mean it’s nice when a brand thinks about the packaging because for most of us our perfumes are sat on out on a vanity and take pride of place so it is extra special when the bottle is elegant and pretty. Chloe bottles are just that, they come in simple but sophisticated boxes with a light peachy colour and the bottle itself is a stunning mix of metal and cut glass, the simple ribbon on the neck of the bottle adds a lovely feminine touch. It’s timeless & sophisticated.

Chloe Signature Fragrance Direct

Favourite Spring Perfume Chloe

Perfume is always such a thoughtful, luxurious gift to give. I always treasure my fragrances because they tend to evoke memories and transport me back to so many happy times. I am so excited to introduce my Mum to the iconic Signature scent by Chloé because I know she will enjoy wearing it just as much as I do. As a bonus, the scent will always remind her of the Mothers Day trip to Cornwall and will bring back good memories every time she smells it.

What perfume that you wear would your Mum also enjoy too? Fragrance Direct has a great selection of Mother’s Day Gift Ideas so you can #GiveFragranceNotFlowers this Mother’s Day too!

Miller Harris Rose Silence Perfume

Rose Silence Fragrance from Miller Harris

Miller Harris Rose Silence

I was first introduced to Miller Harris 2 years ago and instantly fell in love. I’ve tried four of their fragrances but for me, their Rose Silence perfume is simply stunning and has become my everyday scent. You know that feeling when you find a perfume that makes you feel amazing when you wear it? well, that is how Rose Silence makes me feel.

Miller Harris was founded 15 years ago by expert parfumer Lyn Harris who spent five years training in Paris, then in Grasse at Robertet, the world’s leader in natural aromatic ingredients. Whilst respecting tradition, Miller Harris strives to push the boundaries, creating exquisitely crafted fragrances that are innovative yet timeless. Miller Harris perfumes are beautiful, luxurious and timeless. 

Miller Harris Rose Silence Perfume

I have the perfume in all three of the sizes available 100ml, 50ml and a 15ml handbag spray. I use this perfume on a daily basis, always have the mini bottle in my handbag and even take it away with me on holiday. It has become my signature scent.

I love that this is very much a modern, romantic take on a Rose perfume. It isn’t the slightest bit old fashioned or powdery. You can make out the sweetness of the blackcurrant and I love the touch of musk too, it makes it very sexy and contemporary. It has notes of,

  • Top notes: mandarin, blackcurrant

  • Heart notes: rose

  • Base notes: patchouli, cashmere musk

I seem to be drawn to fragrances that have patchouli in them and I think it works so well with the sweet/fruity notes of blackcurrant and mandarin which give it a zesty feel. Whilst the cashmere adds a romantic softness.

The rose notes are very delicate and combined with the other notes make this a very sensual and romantic scent which is easy to wear. It smells light and fresh but also has incredible staying power, I have noticed that a couple of sprays in the morning will last well into the evening, I can always still smell it on my clothes when I get back home. The quality of Miller Harris fragrance is such that a little product goes a long way and a bottle will last you months and months.

Favourite Perfume from Miller Harris

I love the square, chunky bottles. They feel weighty and luxurious, their simple black stencil-like design gives it them a very contemporary minimalist vibe. Everything about this brand is focused on quality, elegance and luxury. Their products make the most thoughtful, exquisite gifts.

Rose Silence Miller Harris Luxury Perfume

I am just head over heels in love with this scent and I just don’t feel like I’m ready for the day without it. It’s a scent which that lasts all day and I always have so many people asking what perfume I’m wearing, it seems to be a scent that appeals to a lot of people of all different ages.

I need to try the bath and body products from this collection too – I can imagine just how amazing the body lotion would smell on my skin.

Have you tried any perfumes from Miller Harris? Or have I managed to convince you to track down a counter and give them a go? I hope so.

Limited Edition Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb 2017

Limited Edition Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume

Limited Edition Viktor Rolf Flowerbomb Perfume

Since it’s launch in 2005 Flowerbomb has become an International bestseller and I for one love it’s sweet floral scent, it evokes so many happy memories and it is a perfume I always go back to.

The 2017 Christmas Collectors Edition of Viktor & Rolf’s Flowerbomb comes with a silver flower adorning the neck of the iconic hand-grenade shaped perfume. This bottle is slightly different this year as it’s frosted pink instead of the classic glass bottle. This limited edition design is charming and quite subtle compared to previous years and I really like it.

Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Limited Edition 2017

The perfume is the same cult favourite but each year Viktor & Rolf like to release a special edition bottle at Christmas, so the scent is the one we all know and love. It has that fresh, sweet modern feel with an oriental twist. It is such a recognisable scent and I have been wearing it for years now. I always have a bottle in my collection because it is a perfume that is so easy to wear and the scent lasts so long on me.

  • Top notes – Mandarin, Bergamot, Pink Pepper, Saffron
  • Heart notes – Roses, Jasmine Flowers, Olives
  • Base notes – Amber, Vanilla, Patchouli, Oud

Limited Edition Flowerbomb Perfume

This is a lovely light, floral scent but you can make out the sweet notes of vanilla and the rich warm notes of amber. This perfume is layered with gorgeous notes and I adore bergamot in my fragrances, I think it gives Flowerbomb a sophisticated & sexy edge. If you’re someone who has never tried this iconic fragrance you must test it next time you get the chance. It really is a beautiful, smooth & rich scent with so many beautiful notes.

Gorgeous Flowerbomb Bottle

NEW Viktor and Rolf Flowerbomb

If you know someone who loves Flowerbomb, their limited edition bottles make wonderful gifts, if you can track one down as they sell out incredibly fast each year.

So if you’re still looking for Christmas gift ideas for someone special, or indeed a treat for yourself then this beautiful Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb perfume might be just the ticket.
