How many ways can one wear swarovski? On our ears, wrists and necks? Even embellished on our fancy dresses and gowns? Here's another way -- spray it on. Yes, the European brand, which revolutionized the crystal industry, has finally unveiled its much anticipated debut fragrance Aura by Swarovski last May 25 at The Art of Scent boutique in Resorts World Manila.







 

Inspired by radiance and light, the fragrance brief was to create both a visual and olfactive glow, to replicate the luminosity of a Swarovski crystal. In terms of scent and notes, Aura is a very light one. Essentially a fusion of amber and white musk, it plays between floral and fruity with high notes of white tuberose and hints of lychee, and even spicy notes of red berries. Definitely a signature of French fragrance art, this floral creation is a contemporary blend of fine quality ingredients.


 The bottle itself is a gem, composed of a glass flacon housing the pink juice and an outer metal sheath, topped off with a single faceted asymmetrical Swarovski crystal. 



To further cement their foray into the world of beauty, Swarovski has included in their collection, beautiful “Makeup Jewels”; bejeweled pendants to be worn around the neck on delicate leather cords. They are more than just pretty embellishments --they house make-up too! The texture enriched with genuine micronized “Swarovski Crystal” and iridescent Crystal Shine powder, gives shiny dazzling radiant lips and glowing skin. These luxurious pendants are both a fashion and beauty must-have in one efficient package.


The Make-up Jewels (L-R): Crystal Gloss Transparent, Crystal Touch and Crystal Gloss Pink

The two Crystal Gloss lip glosses are available in transparent and pale pink shades, while the Crystal Touch silver shimmer can be used to highlight the face and décolletage. These pendants excited me the most. They reminded me of some of my most cherished make-up jewelry I've been collecting for years now. Here are some of my favorites:


Dior Summer Play Extreme Shine Lip Gloss in Pink Essentials
 

Dior Pretty Charms Secret Lipgloss in Pink Enchantment


Dior Light Jewelled Make-up Pendant in Pink Gem
 
Thanks to my mom for my name, I've grown to love anything Christian Dior, especially when I first discovered their limited edition embellished make-up jewelry that only come out twice a year. I'm really glad Swarovski decided to launch similar make-up jewels, they're definitely next on my list!

Aura by Swarovski EDT is available in 30ml, 50ml and 75ml bottles, and retails at P2,900, P3,600, and P4,800 respectively. The range is available at all premium department stores nationwide and Art of Scent, Luxury Fragrance Boutique Resorts World Manila.
