Mía Mariú’s New Fragrance Collection {Giveaway} – CLOSED

Disclosure: This could be a sponsored post or contain affiliate links (which means I earn a percentage of the sale), but all opinions are strictly my own.

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

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.

IMG_9250 copyTo 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.IMG_9256

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.

It must have been on my first or second date with “Charlie” that we were discussing what about the opposite gender we are most attracted to.  You might have had this conversation with your boyfriend/spouse/stranger before.  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 shocked at this cute boy’s answers: first and formost, he is attracted to a girl’s SCENT.  Really?!  Above a girl’s looks, legs, personality, or straight teeth, you are most attracted to the way she smells?

Because I really liked this guy, and wanted him to really like me too, you can bet I started paying a LOT of attention to what I smelled like!

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.  One day I was going through some of my travel cosmetic bags and found a sample of Alien I couldn’t remember where from, and tried some on for fun.  I instantly received some comment from him like “You smell incredible!” to which I responded, “Wait, I LOVE this too!”  And that very day we knew we had found a keeper and that I HAD to find more of this stuff!

Instead of going out to the mall or some high end department store, I went straight to FragranceNet.com and found exactly what I wanted!  A big beautiful bottle of Alien by Thierry Mugler!

I cannot think of a better gift for a significant other than some delicious fragrance!  Besides perfume and cologne, FragranceNet.com also carries skincare, makeup, hair care, aromatherapy, and candles!  If you’ve already gotten Christmas covered, whether you like it or not, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner!

Or your man needs some hints on what to give YOU for Christmas…

If you’re still looking for a gift that is practical but meaningful, you might consider heading over to Beauty Encounter to check out their products!

They have skincare, hair care, bath and body, items for the home, and perfumes and colognes.

I was sent Ralph Lauren Hot, and I loved the scent.  It was strong enough to last the whole day, but wasn’t overwhelming or powerful.  Even though it’s more of a summer scent, the “Sensual Mocha Cream, Spicy Cinnamon, Luscious Maple” seemed to make this perfume to work in other seasons (such as fall when I’ve been using it!).

I also have Terre D’Hermes to give to my husband for Christmas this year (shh!), but I did try it out.  On my own wrist.  Without completely thinking.  Let’s just say that the scent is very manly and should not be worn on my wrist.  :(  I’m sure, though, that I’ll love it on my husband.  🙂
