If you’re a frequent reader of my blog, you might have seen me write about my love for Vivienne Westwood perfumes – they’re just so glamorous! For my 21st birthday last week, I was lucky enough to recieve the latest Vivienne Westwood fragrance, Cheeky Alice, as a gift from my (very stylish!) grandparents!
How cute is the packaging? I love the contrast of the coral and gold, and the fact that you feel like you’re “peering into the looking glass”…yes, I know that’s the point, but I love it!
I also absolutely love the bottle – check out my warped reflection in the bottle top too! I like that the perfume itself is clear in colour – I’m not a big fan of perfumes looking like they have a colour to them for some reason! I also love to think of the thing wrapped around the bottle’s neck as its ‘scarf’ – let’s take a closer look!
It is imprinted with the Vivienne Westwood orb! Very eye catching and a lovely bit of detail. Not only that, but as described on the packaging, it doubles as a wearable bracelet! So very cool.
But on to the fragrance itself! I was surprised when I first smelt it at how fresh it is – other Vivienne Westwood perfumes are quite heavy, definitely evening fragrances in my book. I love that I now own one that can easily be worn in the day time. It is quite floral but not overpowering, and has a certain sweetness to it too, which is a must for me.
Overall I am a huge fan of this perfume and a very grateful recipient of it as a gift! I think it would make a wonderful Christmas present for any Vivienne Westwood fan, or lover of fresh and fruity perfumes.
Have you tried Cheeky Alice or any other Vivienne Westwood fragrances? What do you think of them?
