This is the prettiest bottle I’ve seen in ages. The new summer fragrance from Carolina Herrera, CH Sublime Eau De Parfum, is vintage inspired with a modern twist. Shaped like a purple leather handbag (very 50s), it has little initial pendants and a bow – so will look gorgeous on a dressing table. And inside? The composition is inspired by old vintage scents of the 20s – rose, patchouli and moss are updated with notes of passionflower and bergamot. It’s quite heavy and distinctive so ideal for summer nights out.
Overall, it is its Chypre notes that give the scent a thoroughly modern twist with a sweetness coming from bergamot and oriental passion flower.
Exclusive to Harrods from 30th June 2013, from £55 for 50ml.
