Miu Miu welcomes the L’Eau Bleue to its fragrance family
Ain't no flanker
Double takes are in order when you first lay eyes on the L'Eau Bleue, Miu Miu's latest fragrance that plays the fraternal twin game with its older sibling, the Miu Miu Eau de Parfum. Presented in the signature matelassé flacon capped by a crowning disk — now rendered a pastel yellow and the bottle a crystalline-blue transparent glass — this new addition weaves its own olfactory impression that proves it's no flanker riding the coattails of the original.
Refreshingly crisp, accents of sparkling dew uplifts the lush heart notes of lily of the valley, harmonised with wisps of honeysuckle for a bouquet that perfumes the air like the awakening of spring. And just when you thought the L'Eau Bleue might be another 'green' scent, an unexpected spiciness kicks in to bring a depth to the accords — an aromatic trait credited to the Akigalawood that infuses the juice; an almost hereditary characteristic of the Miu Miu fragrance family, having laced the prior Eau de Parfum with its earthy essence.
Concocted by perfumer Daniela Andrier who sought to evoke that sensation of one emerging from a liminal space to the bloom of early spring, Miu Miu emphasises this scintillating effervescence with Stacy Martin who reprises her role as the face of the fragrance. Clad in a patterned blue dress and affecting an ingénue gaze, the actress embodies the quintessential Miu Miu woman, carrying the playful freshness of L'Eau Bleue like a veil of radiant femininity.
The Miu Miu L'Eau Bleue is available from March at all leading department stores, $147 - $176
