New for Spring 2010, designer Nicole Miller has partnered with Parlux Fragrances, Inc to launch an amazing new scent for women. Inspired by her own life, her creative philosophy and the women who inspire her design she created this sexy and feminine fragrance. Usually when I sample a new perfume I think "This smells a bit like (blank) perfume." Not this time. This scent is like nothing I have smelled before so when I wear it…I feel like an original.
"With this fragrance I wanted to break away from the conventional and create a new dynamic," said Miller. "I am not about playing it safe. Nor are the women who wear Nicole Miller. So I am introducing a fragrance that is young, fun, surprising and a delight to the senses. One that turns heads. One that makes a great impression."
Miller continued, "The woman I have in mind for this fragrance is smart and confident. She's a lot of fun, a high energy personality, warm, engaging, with that special spark. She loves to let people know she is there and she is someone people are attracted to and remember." No wonder I like this scent so!
The Nicole Miller fragrance itself is a beautiful blend of crisp fruits and florals contrasted with warm woods. It opens with a blend of cassis sorbet, bright orange and clean aldehydes. The heart is feminine yellow gardenia, ylang ylang, orange flower and hints of violet leaves. The background is a blend of black patchouli (which I normally dislike, but is very subtle in this scent) and oakmoss with a bit of white cedarwood and amber.
The Nicole Miller Fragrance Collection includes Eau de Parfum ($65, $80) and bath and body products ($35-60). They may be purchased at Saks Fifth Avenue and Nicole Miller Boutiques throughout the U.S.
