AN INGENUE SCENT

Miu Miu the first fragrance // the CODE Magazine

Key Note: Lily of the Valley
Scent type: Fresh florals

When Miuccia Prada first introduced Miu Miu in 1993, the line was a refreshing change from the monotonous minimalism of ’90s high fashion. And so, too, was the young woman it represented: stylish, sporty, intelligent, feminine, strong, quirky, playful, serious. Fast-forward to 2015, and Miu Miu is repeating history with its first fragrance, a sweet, sexy, and sugary bright floral. The first fragrance for Miu Miu is something of an illusion: you can’t quite categorize it because it refuses to be categorized. The scent is elusive – the Miu Miu character naturally rejects the expected, the proper, the reserved, or the clichéd – because the qualities it evokes are intagible: youth, femininity, freedom, and confidence that comes from knowing exactly what you want.

A FUNGUS FOUNDATION

Formulated with lychee, bamboo grass and Cordyceps mushroom extracts, Bobbi Brown’s Intensive Skin Serum Foundation SPF40 high-powered formula helps give skin the energy it needs to look fresher and younger. Its super silky emulsion floats over the skin’s surface for a flawless yet natural look, beautifying the complexion with a powerful combination of serum ingredients. It also helps support skin’s cellular energy and offers key anti-aging benefits for a smoother, firmer, more lifted look. Ultra-fine pigments cover imperfections without settling into fine lines, plus, an SPF 40 helps prevent future damage.

A KISS IS JUST A KISS

Available in a variety of shades, Burberry’s Burberry Kisses lipstick is a rich blend of satin-finish pigments and shiny polymers that gives luminous colour brilliance, while the weightless formula delivers a customisable make-up result: a single…kiss of colour gives understated luminosity, while two or three kisses give intense depth and vibrancy.
