Marni Comes Out Smelling Like A Rose
Juxtaposed against the sporty elements (like visors and fanny packs) in Marni’s Spring 2014 collection were graphic, Japanese-inspired blooms. It’s only natural that the house’s latest fragrance, Marni Rose, would follow suit—boasting both rose absolute and Bulgarian rose at its core. The eau, similar to Consuelo Castiglioni’s aesthetic, is classic but modern, bold yet refined. Containing top notes like Nanah mint and bitter almond along with a base of cedar, patchouli, and musk, this blend is anything but powdery or cloying. Instead, it’s decidedly refreshing. And while I’m not usually a fan of feminine florals, one spritz sold me…along with the Style.com staffers within close proximity of my desk.
