Michael Bublé - By Invitation

When it comes to perfumes I am obsessed with them, I have ones which mean a lot to me, I love discovering new ones and there is a firm list of ones I detest. It is a personal thing. I keep saying that I am not a fan of celebrity fragrances but every now and again, one comes into my life and I adore it - Meet By Invitation from Michael Bublé.

With most perfumes it is often the packaging that does a lot of the selling and I am guilty of wanting to try a scent because it looks pretty and then you get brands like Chanel who use classic packaging and they are just cult items. For me By Invitation has the wow factor and I would definitely pick it up in the store to try it out. The gold pull off cap and circular design of the bottle which is then suspended in a gold bracelet definitely catches the eye, it looks elegant and is stylish.

Does the scent live up to the design of the bottle? Admittedly this was not at all what I was expecting. I was expecting By Invitation to be overly sweet and overly smelling of Vanilla... thankfully it is not. Described as being a crisp floral oriental fragrance, it has top notes of bergamot and red fruits which give a hit of fruit as soon as the perfume is spritzed. The heart notes of lily of the valley, elegant rose, wild jasmine and spice peony are are just stunning and mix really well with the top notes to give that crisp scent. As it settles on the skin, the base notes of sandalwood-musks mixed with vanilla praline give it that hint of vanilla which whilst evident doesn't overpower the entire scent, it is there in the background as the florals take control to create an absolutely beautiful fragrance.

Once on the skin this perfume has amazing longevity, it is one that you can spritz in a morning and it lingers throughout the day and what I love is that a it begins to fade, the floral notes come through to just give you enough of a whiff to remind you it is still there.

By Invitation Michael Buble is available for £55 for 100ml, £39 for 50ml and £29 for 30ml.

  2. Love the design of this bottle and, yes, I was expeting something sickly sweet. It sounds lovely - crispy florals - and I'm glad the vanilla is not prominent as I'm not a massive fan of that scent. Tx

  3. I have a fascination for perfumes since visiting the Perfume Museum in Grasse where you learn to pick up the tones. The bottle caught my eye too, it looks simple but pretty. Something that would look nice on the shelf too.

  38. Oooh how did I not know how the dream boat Buble had a fragrance. I like the sound of this although the floral notes have me questioning it as I am not a fan of floral scents. But I do love the base notes of sandalwood and vanilla praline are my cup of tea so I will 100% be giving this a whiff next time I'm in town.
