fragrance review model beauty blog

Um. Have you ever seen a bottle-top prettier? Does this not appeal to the five-to-ten year-old in you? (And the fifteen, twenty-five, fifty, eighty year-old too?) It’s a fairy sitting on a flower, for crying out loud! Things just don’t get more girly than this! Van Cleef & Arpels, hugely fabulous and luxurious jewellers, are quite partial to a fairy or two. See item of jewellery below:

van cleef fairy jewellery Don’t ask how much this costs- it’s one of those “if you have to ask, you can’t afford it” numbers and I’m too embarrassed to “apply for price”. Anyway, there’s more than a little resemblance between the incredibly expensive piece of jewellery and the perfume bottle top, isn’t there? I like that a lot – you can almost buy into the whole fine jewellery feel for a fraction of the price and you get a fragrance too. The Feerie Spring Blossom eau de toilette is a blast of floral and fruity springtime scents – I think that the peony is most noticeable, but that’s perhaps because I adore peony scents and I’m always sniffing around for them. There’s an original version of this too – you may have seen it, it’s blue rather than pink. That one has parma violets listed as one of the notes: has anyone tried it? It sounds delicious!

Van Cleef & Arpels Feerie is £54 for 50ml with free delivery from FeelUnique.com

  1. I have the Feerie Rose de Neiges. The bottle is absolutely beautiful, but the scent is a little too “old lady-ish” for me. I still wear it (when I’m not seeing anybody) because it would be a shame to waste it.

  2. I’d so get this just for the bottle, very pretty :)

    Its so nice to see some of the brands returning to really pretty, boudoir worthy packaging. You’d be tempted to buy it just for the looks.

    I have the original, it’s “my precious!” I only wear on special occasions and every single time there are people complimenting me… Have the prefume in the big bottle… simple divine!!

    Ruth, I love your website… hm reconnendations :)… I always keep coming back to see what’s new.

    Also why I wanted to contact you is to ask for your opinion. I would like to become model and I am from UK, however I was already scouted in Milano few years ago but my parents didn’t take it seriously and also they insisted that I finish university first. I am 21 year old, very slim and tall and everyone keeps asking me am I a model. What should I do, how can I try to enter into the modeling?

    I know I am a bit older then most models that begun modeling but I know you were 21/22 when you begun, so I thought to ask you for advice.

    I would love to hear from you.

    Lots of love

    This is absolutely stunning! Oh why do such lovely things have to be so expensive? (Rhetorical question!) xx
