Another amazing moment experienced in the world of ReallyRee today when I went down to Bruce Oldfield’s bridal boutique on Beauchamp Place, for the launch of his very first fragrance.

And guess what? It has happened to me again. I completely fell in love with him!! He is lucky I didn’t hug him! It’s moments like these that refresh my zest for this funny blogging life I have carved myself, restore my faith that there does exist some heart in the fashion industry, and just generally put a super bounce in my step. Fabulous!!

He chatted to Alex and I (the first bloggers he had ever met – yay!!) so warmly and demonstrated genuine interest in the strange blogging lives that we lead. We talked about facebook and twitter, both of which he personally participates in, and our blogs. It was such a nice chat. As fashion is such an uber-exclusive industry, I hugely appreciate those rare moments when it feels inclusive and welcoming and friendly. It makes me a very happy person indeed.

And apart from Bruce Oldfield the man, Bruce Oldfield the fragrance is absolutely gorgeous. Truly, it is lovely. I just smelt it on my wrist and it makes me close my eyes and ‘mmmmmmmmmm’. It has bergamot which is one of my faves, and mimosa, which seems to be the note that resonates most with Bruce Oldfield himself.

The fragrance is all about the sophistication and glamour of his experience of the South of France in the ’70s, spent with his muse Charlotte Rampling, when he was 24. It also has galbanum; vanilla, ylang ylang,  neroli, rose. ‘These classic floral notes have been entwined with treasures of modern perfumery: a fresh marine accord enlivens the top notes with deep, sensual amber base notes for elegance and sophistication.’
Bruce said of his new fragrance: “The Bruce Oldfield woman is chic and feminine and this fragrance is for me the essence of the woman who loves to wear my clothes. It’s fresh and delicate but at the same time has a sophisticated edge which is very appealing. My memories of Cap d’Antibes in the early ‘70s conjure up this glamorous, intelligent, playful woman I love to design for.”
I completely love it. You have to try it.
