FRAGRANCE - Harajuku Hits London
I am loving Gwen Stefani's latest fragrance offering. Harajuku Lovers is a range of five beautiful fragrances presented as miniature Japanese dolls named Love, Lil Angel, Music, Baby and G. The new Harajuku range not only represents Gwen's backing dancers, but her unique style too and is the latest addition to a growing fashion and fragrance portfolio for the singer.
All the fragrances are floral in scent with undertones of Creamy Vanilla Orchid, Pineapple, Sparkling Pear, Orange Flower, or Fresh Coconut and are inspired by the electric street scene of the Harajuku shopping district in Tokyo.
I tested the 'Music' eau de toilette which was delicately sweet and delicious with hints of vanilla and pear. The aroma is not overpoweringly sweet though and subtle enough to be worn every day. These are also likely to be a hit with teens who will appreciate the undeniably cute bottles and fresh floral fragrances.
The Harajuku Lovers dolls are now available exclusively from World Duty Free stores until February 2009 priced at £16.00 which I think is really reasonable. Cheap enough, in fact, to collect the whole set. So if you are travelling by plane soon you will be able to get ahead of the crowd, and if not then find a friend who is to snap them up for you.
Visit the World Duty Free website for more info on where to buy.
