Do you remember in the early 2000's when there was nothing on this side of heaven that wasn’t blinged out: dresses, clutches, jewelry, hand cream, vajazzle… you name it! And the leader in quality blingery (Yes, I’m making up words!) was none other than luxe Swarovski brand. Well, in addition to mastering the art of precisely-cut crystal glass, Swarovski is teaming with Clarins Fragrance Group to create a new scent.
Aura by Swarovski, is inspired by the “grace and magnetism of light,” and of course, crystals. The juice will be a warm fruity floral with fragrance notes of amber, white musk, bezoin resin, lychee, tuberose and pink pepper.
"Aura is the perfect visual expression for the soul of crystal," said Swarovski's Markus Langes-Swarovski.
The bottle's design is a combination of a glass tube with a metal lid in the shape of an asymmetric crystal and the liquid inside is pink. Very chic!
Just when you thought it couldn’t get any better, Swarovski announced the Make-Up Jewels collection, which is three pendants with crystal-infused makeup inside. Two of the pendants contain lip gloss Crystal Gloss, and the third one carries the shimmering Crystal Touch balm that can be used on the face and along the neckline. ($74 to $85)!
Aura will be available exclusively at Selfridges in the UK, and will debut in the US next year.
Call me a skeptic, but even though I like the look of fine crystal it baffles me to think of how I would interpret it as a scent, and fruity and florally just doesn’t strike me as the personification of crystal. Either way, if this perfume smells divine, then my take on how crystal should smell won’t really matter!
Glamazons, are you looking forward to this new fragrance? Do you like the thought of spritzing bottled bling on yourselves?
