I’ve been pretty interested in Anna Sui cosmetics and fragrance for awhile because well.. Have you ever seen anything more divine than this bottle? The packaging on everything is amazing, as far as I can tell, the contents are just as lovely. I still haven’t tried any makeup yet, but I do have a perfume to share, Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme*.
Inside an elaborate box, Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme comes in a gorgeous bottle with two roses, a purple perfume, and a gold butterfly cap. I would definitely remove the cap using the base and not the butterfly, just to make sure no damage comes to it. It is so so pretty. I really just want to look at this perfume all day, but then I have to smell it, and it’s just as lovely.
The scent of Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme is really just sparkling and fresh. At first it just smells fruity and sweet and floral, a mix of rose, pear, berries and dragonfruit but those scents settle into a soft background of notes including black vanilla and sandalwood. This is a delicious scent I am constantly reaching my arm to my nose to smell when I am wearing it, and I get about 6 hours of wear which is quite good considering it’s an EdT. I am basically addicted to the scent of rose, but the mix of the floral with the fruit results in something really fresh and bright. I would consider Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme a daytime scent and one that is perfect for spring or the beginning of summer.
For me, Anna Sui La Vie De Boheme is a scent full of energy and vibrancy. It is sparkling, sweet and floral. It is absolutely delicious and I am definitely interested in adding more Anna Sui scents to my collection now. I highly recommend you try this one out next time you are a Sephora or The Bay.
What do you think of the Anna Sui packaging? Have you tried any of her fragrances before?
