The Smell of Couture

From the talent behind the Herve Leger super-cool bandage dresses – as worn by Rachel Bilson and Halle Berry – comes a brand new scent that is as sweet as it is fruity. It’s called BCBGMAXARAZIA and if you are a romantic at heart you will really love it. The perfume has top notes of juicy wild strawberry, black cherry and kir royale, blended with violets, jasmin, lily of the valley and rose. Finally, basenotes of  musk and sandalwood add a deeper dimension which brings the perfume together in a very elegant overall scent. When I first tried it the sweetness was very strong (too strong even?), but – as most  fragrances do once they settle on the skin – after a few minutes it transformed into something much more subtle and almost addictive (I found myself smelling my wrist a few times!).  The bottle is very charming too, and will look fantastic on any dressing table or bathroom.

BCBGMAXAZRIA retails at £44 for 50ml and launches on March 24th. Get your hands on it and give it a try!
