Lily of The Valley

Friday, July 15, 2016
As someone who has a soft spot for exquisite packaging, this debut fragrance from Miu Miu had me at the first sight. I hadn't smelled the perfume, yet I fell in love instantly. You know, it's impossible to resist when the look of the bottle itself is already breathtaking! *pun intended*

Miu Miu Eau De Parfum review
Miu Miu Miu Miu Eau De Parfum.

Description: An elegant, sensual floral—lily of the valley—composed of real jasmine, real rose absolute, and synthetic green notes. The soft, fresh, ingénue scent is set against a deep earth-toned background: the wood and pepper of akigalawood, an extract of patchouli. The akigalawood adds a rich, brooding mystery to the subtle sparkle of the floral. The surprising combination feels natural and timeless—flower and earth—but the effect created by the multifaceted process is utterly contemporary.

Notes: Star Anise, Ginger, Green Lily of the Valley, Blooming Lily of the Valley, Jasmine Petal, Rose, Akigalawood, Sandal Wood, Nirvanolide.

Style: Feminine. Youthful. Sophisticated.

Miu Miu perfume review
Ingredients.

The packaging, of course, too dainty to be true. I appreciate the beauty of ornamental fragrance bottles, simply because they could sublimely style the top of my vanity as well as any of Instagram #flatlays shots, don't you think so?

I adore the fancy scent of pure floral and warm woody tones, it's been my signature scent if anybody has noticed. Thanks to the jasmine and rose influence, this perfume smells so refreshing as if it is tailored to the summer season. And, is it only me? But I sense these subtly woody notes are tantalizing, creating such a seductive allurement which is delicately enrapturing. Last but not least, performance wise, it delivers a long-lasting floral hit onto the skin. 

Price: USD 88

On a side note, I got this new pair of circle lenses from Lens Village, a Malaysia-based K-lens distributor that carries more than 600 choices of circle lenses and ships worldwide. As someone who always plays on the safe side when it comes to appearance, I picked the brown ones but apparently the diameter of these lenses are way too big for my eyes, 0.5mm larger than my usual. It was my mistake to fail checking the details, I ended up looking too dolly and unnatural. Comfort wise, I don't like how they aren't stuck properly on the middle of my eyes sometimes. Sounds weird I know, perhaps it's caused by the huge diameter. Moreover, I don't think they come in the same exact color as their advertisement. On the display, obviously the brown shade somewhat appears to be bronze, whereas in real life it looks closer to chocolate brown.

    14. USD88 for a Miu Miu perfume is actually reasonably priced. And you actually look good with the lenses in the picture, sorry it didn't fit quite right for you though.

    25. I wonder if the scent is on the milder side. I'm not too much of a fan for floral scents though, but if its mild similar to Lavin Eclat or Marc Jacobs Daisy So Fresh, I'd probably like the scent. But, heck yah! that packaging is Fabulous! and you're sooooo pretty!
