Bunch o’ limited edition collector bottles (& some other stuff) 2015, part 4

More limited edition collector fragrance bottles, with the usual disclaimers: in most of these cases, the juice is unchanged, just the bottle is “special” (or not, as the case may be), and some of these may not be available in the US. Today’s post includes collector items from By Kilian, Aftelier and Fendi; new concentrations of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire and Cheryl Stormflower; and a new edition of Jimmy Choo Exotic.

By Kilian + Sophie Matisse

From By Kilian, Good Girl Gone Bad, Straight to Heaven and Bamboo Harmony in bottles designed by artist Sophie Matisse (who has done collector bottles for the brand in the past). Due to launch in May, 50 ml for $195 each…

Fendi Furiosa ~ perfume review

Kasia Smutniak for Fendi Furiosa

Fendi — what is the general perfumista view of Fendi, anyway? (That’s a serious question, do comment). Like many of you, I adore Theorema,1 and I know the original Fendi fragrance for women is still remembered fondly. But nothing Fendi has done in my (perfumista) time has interested me. I have nothing to say about Fan di Fendi, and the brand’s last pillar for women, L’Acquarossa, did not inspire any greater sentiment than hey, you could do worse.

L’Acquarossa was styled as the “red elixir of passion”. Furiosa stakes its claim as “the essence of wild femininity”; in the Furiosa commercial, everything Kasia Smutniak touches takes on a glittering gold animal print to match the bottle design.2 Does it live up to its billing? Need we even ask…

Escada Joyful & Fendi Fan di Fendi Blossom ~ fragrance reviews

Escada Joyful & Fendi Fan di Fendi Blossom adverts

Just because it’s now officially fall in my part of the world doesn’t mean that we’re required to break out our deeper, spicier fragrances right away, right? Not when there’s still a fresh crop of pink perfumes in pink bottles to be sampled! I tried two new-ish ones this week, with mixed results.

First up: Escada launched Joyful, its latest fragrance for women, late in the summer. It’s a fruity floral whose notes include blackcurrant, melon, mandarin, peony, magnolia, nectarine, violet leaf, honey and sandalwood, and its ads feature model-of-the-moment Miranda Kerr riding a merry-go-round. (At least, she’s one of the models who seem to be everywhere right now.)

Escada hasn’t released anything but upbeat fruity florals in a long time, and Joyful fits the usual profile…
