It’s undeniable that certain things help to get us in the mood for the festive period. Whether it’s that first mince pie, the red cups from your favourite coffee shop, finally being able to pop on your bobble hat or simply stocking up on wrapping paper like it’s going out of fashion. All the little nuisances that make up our individual holiday season are what makes it special – and for me it’s popping on the Christmas music and sipping on a nice cup of tea. In recent years it’s become clear that Mr Bublé could be renamed Mr Christmas, thanks to the almost universal connection we make between his voice and the opening of yet another advent calendar door; Michael Bublé is the king of the crooners and his holiday album continues to be a best seller year after year. (While recently clearing out my Great Aunts flat she actually had three copies of the same CD, presumably playing in every room of her apartment from December 1st!) Although it’s not possible to mail-order yourself a piece of Bublé, this Christmas you can ask Santa for a bottle of his debut fine fragrance – which is almost as good as opening the real thing on Christmas morning.
Michael has been heavily involved in developing a beautiful elegant
scent that personifies his own timeless appeal. ‘By Invitation’ is
described as a ‘crisp floral oriental’, but the warming base notes
ensure it’s a sensual and timeless addition to any fragrance portfolio.
Starting with light and sparkling top notes of red fruits and bergamot,
the scent then develops its heart notes of lily of the valley, elegant
rose, a wild jasmine and the spicy inflexions of peony; By Invitation
then wraps you in a warm base of sandalwood-musks, blended with an
addictive vanilla praline, leaving behind a lingering addictively warm
scent. This is not like any other ‘celebrity’ fragrance you will have experienced, because the ingredients and composition are more akin to a premium perfume house than an affordable spritz; although there’s a lot of snobbery around scent, every single one of the thirty or forty people I’ve known to have smelt this have been pleasantly surprised and instantly fallen for ‘By Invitation’. That’s a testament you can’t argue with. (Read my original feature on the scent here.)
This Christmas what better way to show someone you care than with a beautiful bottle of scent that they’ll cherish all year long? The beautiful ‘By Invitation’ scent is now even available in candle, shower gel, body lotion and purse spray format so you can enjoy it in more ways than one – as well as being available in a special priced festive gift set which includes a free body lotion (worth £14.00) when bought with the 100ml fragrance for £55.00. The timeless design of the bottle and beautifully elegant scent will no doubt be well received from everyone from your best friend and sister to your mother-in-law and Nan.
To celebrate the impending holiday season, and the beautifully scented treats on offer from ‘By Invitation’, over the next week I’m going to be bringing you tonnes of Christmas themed content for you to enjoy – so make sure you pop back every day to see what’s new, and to get a little inspiration too. But before then, I’m going to be giving FIVE lucky readers their very own ‘By Invitation’ gift set so they can treat a loved one to the debut fine fragrance from Michael Bublé. (If you want to win one, just enter via the widget below.) Now lets all crack open a bottle of mulled wine, start scoffing the Quality Street and pop on that Bublé Christmas album… Because it’s never too early to get in the spirit.
