I’m a total perfume junkie and I still remember spritzing myself with my mom’s bottle of Elizabeth Taylor’s White Diamonds before I ran out the door to middle school. And now I think I’ve found a new favorite. We all know Nicole Miller for her amazing fashions that grace the runways, well, now she has introduced a perfume that captures the essence of her beautiful collections.
The new scent that is aptly named Nicole Miller is a bold mix of heavenly aromas. It is invoked with notes of yellow gardenia, cassis sorbet, black patchouli, cedar, ylang ylang and amber- just to name a few. The fragrance is light and airy enough for a Spring stroll through Central Park and sweet enough for a date night out on the town.
Miller has said, “I don’t like most perfumes. I find them too florally and too old. I wanted to create a fragrance that was young and modern.” The collaboration with perfumer Caroline Sabas of Givadaun is described as a “modern Chypre”. The bottle is design is as classic as Nicole Miller’s designs. It features a “metal celtic knot inspired by Miller’s apparel prints.”
The scent is available at Saks in two sizes: the1.7 oz retails for $65 and the 3.4oz for $95. Also in the collection are a yummy soufflé shower gel, a body cream and a body gel.
