If I was ever invited to the Oscar's, or a major event where black tie was requested, wearing Armani Privé would be at the top of my picks! Somehow, the ethereal but strong elegance of Cate Blanchett just bowls me over and usually, at formal occasions she's wearing Armani Privé, the Haute Couture side of the Armani brand. As close as I get though, is with my new love, my ooh so sensual scent, Rose D'Arabie by Armani Privé. The exotic ingredients and specials oils infused to make this fragrance so special, could only have began as an intimate project by Mr Armani for friends and family. So grateful he decided to share his Essentials with us mere mortals. 

These are really Haute Couture fragrances, as each beautiful bottle is crafted to minimalist perfection and gracefulness, having been inspired by the sculptor Constantin Brancusi. This aroma, heady and strong, but soft underneath, ( just like me I guess) suits me just fine...
