Summer Must-Have: Givenchy Miniatures Collection










I am not sure about you but whenever Summer strikes, my perfume likings hike and I feel I want to own every single one I come across in every departmental store. Not a very kind thought for my wallet though is it? Especially when brands like Givenchy do some fabulous scents that you simply cannot resist. Comes in, Givenchy Miniatures Collection with a travel sized version of their best selling scents cobbled together neatly in a set. Of course it would make a fabulous gift for a perfume collector or even a lovely bridesmaid present as the peak wedding season is here but personally, I'd say savour it all for yourself! 

A great way for a scent rookie to try out a whopping five from a designer brand like Givenchy without having to fork out much at all. It's a fabulous way to decide which one you'd want to invest in as your signature perfume for Summer. I quite like the way the gift set comes packaged quite beautifully. If I were to give it as a present, it wouldn't need any gift wrapping at all. Always a plus point for lazy peeps like me who would rather want to rely on great packaging. For £23.50, Givenchy Miniatures Collection by Click Fragrance is good value for money as it appears substantial and worth every penny spent. 

The miniature perfume bottles are absolutely adorable and look uber cute. They are made well and don't look tacky like other miniature perfume bottles I've come across from other brands. In particular, I am impressed with the bottles of Eau Demoiselle Eau Florale and Dahlia Noir which are cute enough to melt any shopaholic's heart. These can be a collectors item as I definitely do not plan to get rid of them once I've done using them. 

Also, co-incidentally, Eau Demoiselle Eau Florale and Dahlia Noir are also my favourite of the lot when it comes to the scent itself. Dahlia Noir is grown up, smoky, mysterious and elegant. Whereas Eau Demoiselle Eau Florale is a complete contrast with it being subtle, floral, lightly sweet and ladylike. Dahlia Noir is something I would reserve for the evenings quite easily and the other is perfect to dab on generously during daytime for something chic and light. 

Very Irresistible and it's Electric Rose version are great as well with both being perky, fresh, energetic and upbeat with hardly much variation between the notes in my opinion. Perfect if you like fun and refreshing scents for Summer which are easy to like and wear. Ange Ou Demon Le Secret is floral, woody and warm, quite a unique one from the lot with hints of lemon and tea shot through it. I feel I'm going to love this one come Autumn. 

Overall, Givenchy Miniatures Collection is great value for money, every fragrance lovers delight and most importantly, something any one would love to receive as a present.
