Italian fashion house Missoni is known for its cheerful zig-zag patterns and colourful knits. What started out as a small fashion collection has grown into an entire lifestyle brand that includes home decor, ready-to-wear, accessories and fragrances. All of it is overseen by Creative Director Angela Missoni. She’s committed to maintaining the original spirit of the brand in every product she designs. I had the pleasure of interviewing her a couple years ago and she is lovely.
Angela created the two most recent Missoni fragrances working with top performer Quentin Bisch. The first is Missoni Eau de Parfum, a floral-fruity-woody composition with notes of pear, bergamot, lemon, jasmine, fruity rose/peony, sandalwood, tonka bean and ambroxan. The second is fresher and brighter. It’s the Missoni Eau de Toilette and it is a citrusy-fruity-floral with notes of pear, water flowers, blood orange, pink pepper, rose water, freesia, peony, heliotrope, musk, white cedar and Georgywood accord.
I’m giving away this luxe set containing both fragrances on my Instagram page. To enter, simply follow @davelackie on Instagram and tag a friend who loves fragrance. Here is a direct link to enter on my Instagram page. (one entry per person) I’ll draw one name at random on March 5th.
Missoni fragrances are available in Canada at Hudson’s Bay stores and thebay.com
