Mía Mariú mm Magia Fragrance

Fragrance/ Giveaway/ mia mariu

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Press Sample

I often hear a lot of people say they have a signature scent. This so isn’t me. I have some fragrances I wear often but I can’t say that I limit myself to just one. For me fragrances can be another form of expression, depending on the occasion or even my mood I like to switch things up. With that I am always looking for new scents to add to my collection.

I was given the opportunity to try out one of three new fragrances from  Mía Mariú. I choose mm magia the female scent, the other two scents mm acqua and mm caoba are for the men. I tend to gravitate towards light scents with floral notes during the week for workdays and mm magia is perfect. 

Mía Mariú describes the scent as a medley of juicy strawberry, mandarin, peach and pear that play sweetly atop dewy blooms of jasmine, plum, magnolia and flirty frangipani; makes the perfect playmate and ideal soul mate for smooth and sensual base notes of rich vanilla, musk, tonka bean and warm and enchanting golden amber.

I found the scent to be a very balanced mix of fruity and floral notes, neither of which overpowered the other.  This is a fun, feminine and flirty fragrance. The scent lasted all day for me, I tend to spray perfume on pulse points and would get a nice whiff of it through out the day.
mm magia is available in a 1.7oz bottle and retails for $42.00 click here to purchase. 

If you are looking for a scent for your man, here are the descriptions on the other two available fragrances;

This clean, cool and refreshing fragrance offers a sophisticated scent with its unique blend of exotic ingredients. Acqua leaves skin aromatically scented with top notes of sliced ginger, star ruby grapefruit and white pepper, middle notes of warm nutmeg, Egyptian jasmine and skin musk while balancing perfectly with bottom notes of Texas white cedar, Haitian vetiver and Bois de Encens. Acqua embodies the essence of masculinity.

This rugged, refreshing, strong and sensual fragrance has top notes of citron tonic, violet leaf, dew grass; middle notes are red saffron, crushed nutmeg and fresh vetiver; base notes are creamy sandalwood, vanilla absolute and vintage suede. Caoba’s modern smooth scent creates mystery and sexy confidence.

Photograph Fragrance by John Russo

Fragrance/ Product Launches/ Product Reviews
Press Sample 

Happy Monday Lovelies, hope everyone had a great weekend. I have a new fragrance on the market to bring to you today, Photograph by John Russo. I have to say I think this just might turn into my new signature scent. I have received a ton of compliments since I have been wearing this one. 

Women's Perfume

If Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, Glamour, Marie Claire, GQ & Esquire ring a bell than you may already be familiar with the works of John who is one of the top celebrity/fashion photographers in the world. He has shot Brad Pitt, Gwyneth Paltrow, Angelina Jolie, Julia Roberts, Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Beil and George Clooney to name a few. He has shot Advertising campaigns for Hugo Boss, Procter & Gamble and Dolce & Gabbana.

To say John Russo knows sexy would be an understatement, and if I had to describe Photograph for women in two words they would be subtle and sexy.

The campaign shot in Paris(hello, one of the worlds most romantic cities) features Brazilian Supermodels Gui Fedrizzi and Marilia Moreno. The scents and packaging embody the spirit of “Old Hollywood”.
