So this is the first ever Miu Miu Fragrance and as you’d expect from the brand, the bottle is such a beauty! We are talking pretty yet quirky, and girly yet strong plus all the things we have come to love from Miu Miu.

I genuinely had no idea what to expect from a fragrance by Miu Miu. I know what I wasn’t expecting. I didn’t think it would be sweet …and it’s not. There’s nothing sweet and sugary about it. For me, it is spicy yet soft, very green and fresh, with Lily of the Valley beating all the way through it. If you like warm, peppery fragrances like Jo Malone Pomegranate Noir, then this could be one for a more floral rather than fruity alternative.

Miu Miu Fragrance Notes

  • Top notes: Lily of the Valley
  • Heart notes: Jasmine Rose Absolute, synthetic green notes
  • Base notes: Akigalawood, an extract of patchouli

I am absolutely loving the earthiness that the patchouli brings and it works really harmoniously against the white floral notes. It’s a really feminine scent with a contemporary, edgy feel.

And the bottle! Have I mentioned the bottle yet? It is so pretty. I love the way it features the iconic Miu Miu leather gathering and the mint-green shades works so beautifully with the red perspex cap that is reminiscent of an old fashioned perfume dabber.
