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:
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!
