Oh golly gosh I'd be lying if I didn't say I was a little bit excited when I recieved the gorgeous new Anna Sui perfume. La Vie De Boheme not only looks gorgeous, but obviously, smells gorgeous too. It's the perfect addition to my new bedroom, it looks great against my white walls and now, I'm going to tell you how you can win yourself a full sized bottle of this new scent AND some Anna Sui designer sunglasses. Summer isn't over just yet ladies...
Let's just analyse how beautiful and elegant the bottle is. I've never seen anything like it, the bottle lid is just incredible, a beautiful butterfly perched on the top. If I'm going to be honest, I do sometimes judge a perfume by it's bottle, I know you shouldn't judge, but in this case, it was a good judgement because usually, a nice looking bottle means that the perfume will also smell great. The bottle is finished with elegant matte glass. I love the use of the ornate butterfly, a symbol of freedom.
I've always been someone who smells Anna Sui perfumes in Debenhams, but I've never personally bought one. I've always loved the smells, but Flowerbomb wins me over every time as my signature scent. La Vie de Bohème was designed to capture the energy and creativity of bohemian life, it's based on Anna Sui’s own ethos, it is romantic, artistic and free spirited with a unique expression and personal style.
So the smell. I hope that one day they invent a way of smelling perfumes online, for now, I will try and describe it to you. It is designed to smell like Turkish rose and sparkling pear, combined with rich burgundy berries and dragronfruit accord. At the heart, notes of peony are juxtaposed against musk, black vanilla and sandalwood to deliver a playful, yet deeply mysterious fragrance. Every time I've let people smell it, they've said that it really reminds them of something, we just can't decide what...
“There’s always been a bohemian vibe evident in my work, but I had never really incorporated this spirit into any of my fragrances. La Vie de Bohème was that connection. It truly represents who I am, from my design aesthetic to how I approach life” - Anna Sui.
