I am a big fan of Pucci prints. I have a few vintage items and I love them. They don’t really fit the Pacific Northwest very well, but hey one day I’m retiring to Mexico! I really tried to love the new Pucci Vivara but I don’t love it. I like it but I don’t think I’ll ever purchase it. I was intrigued by these three new fragrances. I thought that out of three there would surely be one that would make me part with $59. Nope.

The first is Acqua, the blue one. It is much too aquatic for my tastes. I don’t do those type of fragrances. They burn my nose and I find them boring. This isn’t a horrible fragrance, it just doesn’t go with my tastes. I kind of knew this would be my least fragrance because of its reason of being, acquatic. It is too synthetic and not very “salty” like it claims. But, if you like Davidoff Cool Water, Estee Lauder Beyond Paradise, or any of those Bath and Body Works “aquatic” sprays then you’ll probably dig this.

The second is Sole, the yellow one. It is inspired by the sun. Actually I thought I would really dislike this one, but it isn’t too bad. It is a bit bitter from the tomato leaf and tangerine notes. But, it is made “warm” by jasmine, patchouli, and musk. But, it isn’t too warm and it definitely a summer fragrance and not a fall one.

The third is Sabbia, the coral one. It is actually my favorite of the three. This is a huge surprise. Just proves to smell things before making a judgment. It is inspired by sandy shores. I thought I would dislike it because of all the citrus notes listed like tangerine, lemon, and even bergamot. However, this isn’t what makes this fragrance. It is the cool and crisp iris. It is a pretty blend that seems very interesting even with its popular notes like bergamot, iris, and vetiver. It smells both warm and cool. It is that contrast that sand has. Sand can be so hot it hurts or so cool that it hurts.

Each bottle is 1.7 ounces and is an EDT. I thought that they were limited edition but I don’t think they are. Usually when a company offers lots of different items like this in one collection they are limited but I don’t know.

Ursula Andress always had that great sexy 60’s bombshell look. This look will never get old: dark eyes and pale lips. It is the epitome of well, sexy. To get this look first prep skin with a matte foundation and concealer if needed, something like NARS Oil Free Foundation and Concealer Stick in your shade. Lightly dust skin with a powder if you are an oily skin type. Bronzer is a must. Use my favorite bronzer, NARS Bronzing Powder in Laguna. It has the right amount of golden shimmer and color. Brush brows into place with a brow comb and pencil in if needed with a powdery pencil like NARS Eyebrow Pencil in your shade. Panama is the one closest to Ursula’s shade. Apply foundation and powder to eyelid. Use a nude matte shadow from lashline to brow bone. Use something like the lightest shade in the NARS Eyeshadow Duo in Bellissima which is a sheer shimmering beige. This shade really “lifts” the brow bone. Take a large shadow brush and brush the deeper shade from the duo into the crease, it is a grayish brown. Blend until it looks airbrushed. Line eyes with a smoky khol liner like NARS Eyeliner Pencil in Black Moon which is a deep matte black. Line eyes on the top and on the bottom. Take an angled liner brush lightly dipped in a black eyeshadow such as the matte black in the NARS Eyeshadow Duo Pandora. Brush outwards, blending and creating a rich but soft smoky eye. Apply false lashes and/or a rich black mascara. Use NARS The Multiple in St Barts which is a shimmery tan taupe on cheeks. Blend with fingertips for a natural bronzed look. Line lips with a nude lip pencil such as NARS Lipliner Pencil in Fantasia which is a nude peach shade. Lips are matte and super neutral. Coat lips with NARS Lipstick in Belle Du Jour which is a nude beige. Apply a crisp but classy fragrance such as Emilio Pucci Vivara perfume to complete this look.
