Loewe is a luxury Spanish brand that I had never heard of until this fragrance dropped on my doorstep. Loewe Aura Eau de Parfum* arrived just in time for Christmas, and I have been wearing nothing else since, it is beautiful. I think I am fairly picky when it comes to perfume, not really enjoying anything too sweet or sickly and on the other hand, not liking anything to musky or strong. My tastes in perfume include Victor & Rolf Flowerbomb, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Jo Malone Nectarine Honey & Blossom/Lime, Basil & Mandarin and also Estée Lauder Bronze Goddess. I thought this was important to include as, although perfume is quite subjective, if you have similar tastes to me then you will probably love this too.
Aura is a floral, yet sophisticated fragrance which is neither sickly sweet or overbearing, but slightly warm and woody. It is the sort of frangrance that you could wear to any occasion, day or night, and it would suit the mood perfectly. It combines spicy top notes of Pink Pepper, Bergamot, Redcurrant and Violet, with heart notes of Jasmine, Iris, Narcissus and Rose Otto. This is followed by warm base notes of Sandalwood, Cedar, Raspberry Nectar and also Leather which gives it a unique smell. The note that drew me to this scent initially, before I had smelt this was the Jasmine, which reminds me of summer evenings in Spain, a smell that instantly makes me happy.
I absolutely love this frangrance and have been wearing it most days, getting compliments from everyone including my husband (who is brutally honest!). The bottle itself is also extremely elegant as you can see, revealing the rosé coloured perfume through the beautifully designed bottle and includes the branding on a leather label, very luxurious! You really must try this for yourself!
Loewe Aura is available from The Fragrance Shop and ranges between £54-£89
