  1. A literally powdery drydown is very interesting. I find the proliferation of “sparkle editions” of perfume to be a bit twee (or tween!) for my taste, but golden powder is interesting. Or maybe this is really just glitter?

    “especially created and elaborated according to current standards for cosmetics”

    It almost sound like they’re thinking people are going to protest that the powder is dangerous? very weird.

      I think Ormonde Jayne has a similar product, but it’s a solid perfume balm?

  2. ajuarez says:

    Why does that bottle look so familiar?

    • Robin says:

      Hope someone else will chime in — not bringing anything to my mind.

    • OperaFan says:

      In the picture it looks very “holywood glam.” Although they don’t look at all alike, the image did bring to mind the EL PC bottles.

    • Joe says:

      A day late here… the bottle is very similar to the one they do for Micallef Jewel. Actually, see below, I didn’t realize it was meant to be a “series” in any way.

      I’ve heard this is nice and I’m a fan of Micallef. I need to wheedle a sample out of a friend.

    Would you buy it Robin?

    • Robin says:

      No, I’m not a huge fan of ylang, and don’t really want gold sparkle on my arms, which is where I usually wear fragrance.

      • GateGirl says:

        Michael Kors, Very Hollywood. Almost dead ringer.

        • GateGirl says:

          Oops. that was supposed to go to the what does bottle remind one of post.

          But I don’t like glitter on my arms either.

  4. pigoletto says:

    sort of looks like the Gucci bottles to me.

  5. maggiecat says:

    This sounds as if it’s something I might want to try, even if it is a bit sparkly for my taste…
