We are suckers for a new fragrance, particularly when it comes from a trusted source — one like Anna Sui. Sui’s latest fragrance, La Nuit de Bohème Eau de Toilette is a nod to boho-chic at it’s most lavish and we can’t wait to try it out!
Model Gracie van Gastel lounges on golden pillows, and there is an air of golden luminosity all about her. Her gaze meets the camera head-on, an air of confidence, poise, and a heady Romanticism. You can almost sense the warm breeze, the soft air scented with fragrance. Light falls through an archway, it is diffuse and sensual. Is it the rooftop terrace of a Moroccan villa? Is she somewhere in another realm, another century? Is she Scheherazade, spinning 1,001 tales? “The New Bohemian Luxury” sums up the tale . . . provocative, powerful, and alluring.
Inspired by the swirling, graceful flow of the Art Nouveau movement, of Aubrey Beardsley, Alfonse Mucha, Gustav Klimt, and Toulouse-Lautrec, the carton is both decorative and extravagant. Embossed with black and gold filigree against a gold shield, the Anna Sui signature butterfly holds a position of importance. This is repeated on the flacon cap, where the butterfly alights in shimmering gold, shinier than the brightest sunlight. The flacon is like a beautiful bouquet of roses, decorative, enchanting, and fun.
La Vie de Bohème Eau de Toilette conveys a power that nothing else has. One of elegance and sophistication. Luxury and femininity. There is an air of mystery about it, a seductive allure that captures the heart and stirs the senses. Welcoming the night with open arms, she dances into it, aware of her flirty, girly charm. And the notes are as delicious as they are mysterious, a Floral-Woody-Fruity scent that is redolent of glamour, lavishness, and extravagance. It is all a prelude to the night.
Opening with the fizz of Champagne Citrus and Midnight Blackberry, the fragrance deepens to Gilded Lotus Flower, Rose Petale™ and the lengthening play of evening with Sunset Oud Wood. As a final finish, it plays out with Cedarwood Heart, Haitian Vanilla Orchid, Indonesian Patchouli, and Golden Amber Resin. A gilded, glistening fragrance of pure gold.
