Fragrances for Valentine's Day 2019 | Miu Miu Fleur d'Argent Eau de Parfum Absolue & Givenchy Live Irrésistible Rosy Crush Eau de Parfum: Review
Valentine's Day is just around the corner so today I wanted to share with you a couple of floral fragrances. Whether you are looking to treat yourself or just want to find a new scent for spring, the Miu Miu Fleur d'Argent Eau de Parfum Absolue ($115 CAD for 50 ml) and the Givenchy Live Irrésistible Rosy Crush Eau de Parfum ($136 for 75 ml) are worth checking out. To read my review of each, click......

Miu Miu | Fleur d'Argent Eau de Parfum Absolue ($115 CAD for 50 ml):
Housed in an elegant, retro-chic bottle consisting of a silvery core surrounded by a clear, quilt-patterned outside, Miu Miu Fleur d'Argent (which translates in English to "Silver Flower") is described as an "elegant jacket over a shining dress". With only notes of tuberose, musk, and Akigalawood, the scent offers a clean and unique white floral accord. A native Mexican plant reportedly adored by Marie Antoinette, tuberose is not a note I'm too familiar with. However, there's no doubt that it takes center stage here, providing a unique and clean floral fragrance that's sweet but not sickly. The wear time is surprisingly decent; the scent remains strong for at least five to six hours, which for a floral, is pretty impressive. The scent is quite different from most spring florals I've tried so it may not be everybody's cup of tea. However,  if you are a fan of cool florals or are looking for a fresh spring fragrance, Fleur d'Argent is definitely worth checking out!

Givenchy | Live Irrésistible Rosy Crush Eau de Parfum ($136 for 75 ml):
The fifth addition to the ever-growing Live Irrésistible family from Givenchy, Live Irrésistible Rosy Crush is a fresh rose perfume accented with notes of peony, goji berry, and pink peppercorn. Housed in the tall, iconic three-sided bottle studded along the sides, the fragrance is tinted a bright shade of pink. As compared to Miu Miu's Fleur d'Argent, Live Irrésistible Rosy Crush is a much more classic and traditional floral fragrance. The rose is strong but not old-fashioned, thanks to the splashes of peony and pink peppercorn. The wear time is a bit lackluster, unfortunately, but it's not a dealbreaker as this is a softer spring floral. Rosy Crush does contain base notes of musk, patchouli, and ambroxan but none of them are very distinct. So overall, if you are fond of classic florals with a strong presence of rose, this is your scent!
