Miu Miu L'Eau Bleue EDP
After the success of Miu Miu the perfume comes the new Miu Miu L'Eau Bleue
L'Eau Bleue is a dewy , green floral. It has a slightly unisex feel at first and a citrus burst that leads to lots of the pretty white floral of lily of the valley . The citrus and lily stay as the scent progresses. There are green notes, possibly the lily stem, that adding a coolness and rose hovers very lightly in the background adding softness.
I like this new version better than the original which just wasn't to my taste. It was too sharp at times where L'Eau Bleue is not. This is more floral and that appeals to me along with the generous lily notes, a scent I really like.
One of the other notes- akigalawood is a molecule developed by perfumers Givaudan and it is said to smell like a blend of patchouli, peppery notes and oud. I don't get much of any of those, some pepper but mostly these deeper notes stay hidden.
As it dries down, it becomes more quiet and wears closer to the skin where you get soft wafts of lily, and the barest woods.
L'Eau Bleue is a great warm weather scent and just in time for Spring as it's very airy , cool, fresh and bright.
Miu Miu L'Eau Bleue is available at Sephora, Macy's and other department stores.
1oz is $ 68, 1.7 oz is $ 90 , 10 ml rollerball is $ 28 .
