When my husband and I were dating, we were discussing what about the opposite gender we are most attracted to. You know, is it the guy’s smile, their sense of humor, or their baby blue eyes that make you weak in the knees? I was pretty surprised to learn that “Charlie” is first and foremost attracted to a girl’s SCENT. Really?! Above a girl’s looks, legs, personality, or straight teeth, he’s most attracted to the way she smells?
Now that we’re married, he still won’t let me pick out perfume for myself. He has to approve first and he is VERY PARTICULAR. I was a little nervous when I first tried on this new fragrance called Magia from Mía Mariú, becuase I knew that if he didn’t like it, I’d likely be gifting it to my college sister. Well, no worries, because he loves it, and I’m oh so glad I get to keep it!
Mía Mariú is becoming one of my favorite online shops for beauty products. I first reviewed their makeup (you can read that review HERE) and have been using the eyeshadow practically every weekend out, and then a few months ago I reviewed their anti-aging skincare line (and you can read that review HERE), which I also thought was fantastic. Add their new fragrance collection, and you might as well order anything and everything from Mía Mariú and save yourself some shipping costs.
There are three new fragrances from Mía Mariú, two of which are for men, called Caoba and Acqua. These fragrances are EDT 1.7 oz. Now in case you didn’t know, and I myself was clueless about this til I met Scent Boy, EDT stands for Eau de toilette which is 4 – 10% perfume oil. This is a lighter fragrance which is most used for the casual everyday use because it will last for 2 to 4 hours. Bring this along with you to work if you want it to be noticeable after lunch.
To me, the smell is something a little floral and fresh. It doesn’t smell too ‘old-lady’ or too young, while still smelling professional and alluring. The bottle is beautiful, heavy, sturdy, and easy to use, while the tall square shape fits nicely inside small medicine cabinets.
See that little black tube? Mia Mariu also sent me a Perfecting Finish Hydrating Stick Gloss in a vibrant red called Amore. Beautiful! There’s nothing more nasty than a tube of lipstick that tries out your lips to the point of looking cracked and perma-stained, but this substance nourishes while looking glossy and bright.
These fragrances are sold for $42, and one lucky winner will get to choose their own full size mm fragrance!
You might have just solved the question of what to get your lover for Valentine’s!
