Marni has released a fusion of fragrance and fashion – with two of the cutest purse sprays we have ever seen – under the name of Bambolina Doll. We predict these will be on every fashionista’s wishlist for Valentine’s Day… and so much more original than a droopy old rose or unimaginative box of chocolates, dahling!
Available exclusively at Harrods, the duo is dressed in the quirky yet stylish Marni signature style, putting us in mind of the little hand-painted peg dolls we used to make as little girls (though much more fabulously attired). Quite apart from the adorability factor, it’s always good to be given the opportunity to try a smaller size of a fragrance before plumping for a full size bottle.
These whimsical bottles are adorable enough, but the juices certainly don’t disappoint. Marni Profumo mixes spicy cinnamon bark with cardamom, black pepper, ginger, pink peppercorns and bergamot – all shot through with a fresh whisper of rose to heighten the romance.
Marni Rose updates the floral theme by using a delicious blend of raspberry, almond, cassis and mint with violet and cardamom. Perfect for any occasion, these dinky little sprays are ones you’ll be reaching for time and again – both for the pretty perfumes themselves and for the looks of envy that will be flashed your way every time you pull them from your handbag…
