Missoni: La Bella Vita

I love dual purpose products; especially one that makes you look pretty and smell good.  Unfortunately I am not a charm bracelet girl but I have a girlfriend who collects them–this is the perfect Christmas present for her.  Margherita Missoni designed this fun and whimsical solid parfum charm bracelet that combines convenience and luxury (you can discreetly refreshen your scent from a bracelet, necklaces are harder to conceal).  My friend Kristen the Beauty Addict loves solid parfums but I’ve never found one that was to my liking.  I took a whiff of this the other day and for some reason it smelled rancid on me.  Oh well, the search for the perfect solid parfum continues.  I am obsessed with Kai’s gardenia oil but the roller ball broke the other day in the car, on my way to a black tie wedding and spilled all over my vintage HAUTE COUTURE YSL gown circa 1972.  I was devastated and held my clutch over the giant oil stain all night.  Luckily my trusty dry cleaner took the stain right out.  Whewwwww!  Oh, if you’re interested, the Missoni charm bracelet is $50 at Neiman Marcus and Saks Fifth Avenue this month.

    I’ve tried L’Occitane’s solid perfumes but they don’t last very long especially during humid days. Ever try Fragonard?
