I have an arsenal of fragrances — light ones for everyday, sex-in-a-bottle scents for date night, and everything in between. Ever so often a fragrance comes my way that I really can’t box into one category. That’s exactly where Anna Sui Secret Wish falls. It’s soft enough to wear daily and sexy enough to wear for a night out. At any rate, Anna Sui Secret Wish is our Friday Fragrance Find of the week.
Fashion designer Anna Sui’s Secret Wish expresses magical optimism—wishing will make it so. All things are possible.
This fragrance, like a magical fairy, flits lightly from leaf to leaf, dances merrily in mid-air, and has the power to make wishes come true. The scent is like twilight dew, an illusion wrapped in emotion. A fantasy of the heart that leads you on a merry chase.
Secret Wish embodies the enchanting essence of a fairytale. The instant the scent is released, a lush, ripe world opens up, filled with a bouquet of juicy fruits: sparkling lemon, summery melon, and velvety tagete. A burst of pineapple adds flirtatious charm with black currant adding a mysterious facet. Finishing with a touch of musk, warm white cedarwood, and sensual amber, the scent is both alluring and infinitely feminine.
Lemon, Tagete, Melon, Black Currant, Pineapple, White Cedarwood, Amber, Skin Musk.
Alluring. Feminine. Enchanting.
Why Anna Sui Secret Wish is such a find:
Anna Sui Secret Wish is a fragrance is one that you don’t have to wait for a dry down to fall in love with it. From frist spray, first whiff — Secret wish is lovely. While fruity, the scent isn’t obnoxiously sweet. It’s mature and ladylike, one that you will probably wear for years to come. The dry down is of course my favorite part of this scent. With White Cedarwood, Amber and Skin Musk — it was destined to be a hit with me. I love the warmth of the final notes on Anna Sui Secret Wish. And, it’s a perfect fragrance for a gift to yourself or for a friend.
