By Deborah Fulsang Sniffing out the new and newsworthy this…
The new Miu Miu Fleur D’Argent perfume embraces the floral-loving flirt.
Who can resist the packaging? That modern Plexi topper and the retro-inspired flask with its matelassé design, which this time around glimmers with a molten-silver sheen. Current, cool and collectible. You really do want to know what this new Miu Miu fragrance smells like.
So we spritzed.
Designer Miuccia Prada worked alongside perfumer Daniela Andrier to craft this fourth iteration of the Miu Miu perfume lineup. It follows its fragrance lineage from the original Eau de Parfum, L’Eau Bleue and L’Eau Rosée, and keeps its young, signature musk and Akigalawood essence, but layers on an overdose of tuberose to spin things in an heady, fresh direction.
[Listen to perfumer Daniela Andrier—creator of such spritzes as Prada Candy and Maison Margiela, speak about the art of fragrance: perfume as the spiritual collision between nature and humanity. Love.]
The Eye Candy
This little-sister-to-Prada brand is all about style and sass—on the runway and off. This newest campaign is no different. We see our heroine, played by Stacy Martin and a kitten (yes, a kitten), captured by photographer Alasdair McLellan, and by Rebecca Zlotowski for the fragrance film.
The Bottom Line
We’re always fans of bold and opinionated perfume statements and the addition of tuberose in this fragrance is definitely bold. But we like how this perfume lives on the skin, how it dries down and softens to a warm floral that is super-wearable. It’s not our absolute favourite of the brand’s portfolio, but for fans of white florals, it’s spot on. It does, of course, win style points. Who can deny that this little bottle would look great on any dressing table?
