Miu Miu Twist


Italian fashion house Miu Miu opens a new chapter for their perfumes with Miu Miu Twist. This new perfume is aimed at modern girls; creative, energetic, and full of enthusiasm.

What is the contemporary girl of taste daring to do in today’s world of relentless pretense? Instinctively, she finds a plot Twist – and stages a Miutiny against the mundane. Enter, just in time, Miu Miu Twist, the collision of classic and unexpected ingredients that manages to simulate both enthusiasm and sophistication, proving that the two are not Miutually exclusive. Unapologetically indulgent and airy without superficiality, Miu Miu Twist transcends the ticking away of time, space, and status.

Miu Miu Twist aims to be unexpected, a characteristic of all creations under supervision of designer and creative mastermind Miuccia Prada. Miuccia Prada and perfumer Daniela Andrier follow the spirit of the Miu Miu girl, “unpretentiously intellectual – she’s beMiused rather than bored -“, and enhance it with a surprising new energy. Miu Miu Twist is profound yet lighthearted, demure yet stimulating, beaming with a mesmerizing iridescence, according to the creators.


It starts with an assertive sparkle of Vert de Bergamot and Apple Blossom that gives way to a full base of Cedar Wood and an exclusive new Accord: The Pink Amber, an invention of Daniela Andrier, layers in a woodiness reminiscent of burnt sugar cane cutting through crisp air, or a Miusical laugh in the midst of a stately affair



The Miu Miu Twist flacon is a variation of the fashin house’s signature matelassé material, rendered in high contrast. It’s a new take on a classic vintage perfume flacon combining modern art with the flamboyant elegance of boudoir accessories, cinching them together with a gold Miu Miu-branded collar around the neck of the flacon. The house speaks of timeless, outspoken glamour that is at once self-assured and self-effacing – in other words, quintessentially Miu Miu.


The Miu Miu Twist advertising campaign stars ‘Miuse’ Elle Flanning, who also appeared as a model in the Miu Miu FW18 runway show. In cinematic portraits photographed by Mert & Marcus, as well as in the short film by the artists collective CANADA, Elle assumes the starring role in a series of outrageous vignettes, shuttling, as the house says, through various studios and characters, while turning each prop, costume, and set into something Miu: Miusic, Miutant, Miustache.

Taking the lead in so many fictions could be destabilizing, but even in the most extreme fantasy, Elle can locate her own distinct identity. Her antic search is a sequence of cosmic (and comic) plot Twists that ring with the spirit of Miu Miu.


Miu Miu Twist will be available as 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum, at Miu Miu boutiques and at selected stores worldwide. Come into the beautiful world of Miu Miu.





A New Noir: Tom Ford touts latest fragrance

Tom Ford Antharcite 2

I consider Tom Ford perfumes one of the most unique and glamorous that define time. All Tom Ford fragrances are quality… Now the very talented fashion designer is launching a new fragrance within the sophisticated Noir collection, named Tom Ford Noir Anthracite and announced as the latest icon of seduction as well as a reflection of the light in the darkness. The Original Tom Ford Noir was introduced in 2012 as a woody and spicy oriental, followed by the 2013 Eau de Toilette flanker that offers a fresher interpretation, the 2015 spicy gourmand Tom Ford Noir Extrême and the feminine version Noir Pour Femme.


This autumn, the new masculine perfume is described as woody/spicy with an intense and daring aroma. Tom Ford Noir Anthracite carries the name of anthracite, a coal of dark gray color with a high gloss. The new composition, which is expected to portray a contrast between ‘brighter’ notes such as citruses and ‘dark’ woody ones, begins with fresh bergamot and spicy accords on a background of dark woods, including sandalwood from Sri Lanka, cedar wood and macassar wood, a sort of ebony endemic to the island of Sulawesi in Indonesia, to evoke the impression of warm skin.


Leading model Jon Kortajarena stars in Tom Ford’s latest fragrance campaign. The Spanish model fronts the advertisement for Ford’s new cologne. Kortajarena reunites with Ford after previous stints as the face of the brand and a role in his critically acclaimed film A Single Man. Laying in bed shirtless, Kortajarena appears before the lens of photography duo, Mert & Marcus.

I will definitely sniff this one out when it is released…. Tom Ford Noir Anthracite is available as 50 and 100ml.
