Missoni launches EDT, Face Highlighter Review

Missoni fragrances will soon be launching an EDT version of the fragrance.
"Meant to be a lighter and more refreshing version of the fragrance" according to the company, the EDT is indeed a bit different from it's EDP cousin.

To me, the EDP is more floral with the pronounced chocolate overtones. The EDT is not so much lighter, although it is somewhat, but has a more citrus aspect to the dry down, with a hint of roses.The EDT as well as the EDP are great spring/summer scents, but really can be worn anytime.

I did not know until recently that the line has a highlighting powder. The powder is pictured here, and above, is quite a thing of beauty. The multi- colored stripes look very strong in the compact, but when you apply, they are actually more sheer than they look. You get a beautiful wash of bronzy-peach color. Each color can also be used individually on eyes or cheeks. It comes in a striking orange compact that would look great being pulled out your beach or hand bag.

I also had the chance to test the Missoni body Butter. I rarely try or use fragranced lotions as they really don't moisturize well. This body butter is different. It is extremely creamy and contains shea butter. It has a wonderful whipped feel to it. It super moisturizes and leaves you with a light scent.

I have noticed more lines introducing body butters. If the rest are as good as this, then they will be worth buying.

Missoni has the most unusual line of ancillary products. In addition to the compact, there is also a large pillar candle.

The EDT will be at Neimans, Saks,and Bloomingdales this month at 85.00 for 3.4 oz

The compact sells on for 70.00

The Body Butter is available at stores and and is 80.00 for 6.1 oz
