So...? Fragrance Press Day & GIVEAWAY!

(0)comments


On Wednesday, 2nd of September I attended So...? Fragrance's Press Day at House Dublin for the launch of their new range So...? Couture. I got an exclusive invite three weeks prior to the event, and for that I have Emma O'Farrell to thank for!
As the date approached closer I began to feel a little skittish about the thoughts of physically bringing myself to go because it would be my first time attending an event somewhere I've never been before (for which I've had to take a taxi..) and where I did not know anybody. But I couldn't let such opportunity pass so I went, unfashionably -ish late due to my filming of my eyebrow routine earlier on that day..



As soon as I made it to the glass house, I got my press picture taken by the event photographer (I swear, I could get so.. used to this papp'ed life, I'm negl..) I picked up one of the pretty cocktails made straight after  in hopes that it'd give me a quick boost of confidence to spark conversations with strangers, but luckily for me it didn't take long until I spotted a familiar face at the back of the room — Mei Ling, who I've caught sight of at the Goss Meets Live event (but didn't actually talk to) and who was also featured alongside myself in my dear Emily O'Keeffe's Bloggers to Follow article on Campus.ie. So then I took my time to introduce myself to her and get to know each other a little, likewise with other blogger gals present, Fifi, Kassi, Nirina and Lorna. 


So has come out with four new fragrances for the So...? Couture range:

So...? Paris contains an impeccable arrangement of notes which flawlessly evoke the elegance of Parisian style. It is a truly classic scent that will tie your whole look together, playing with the contrast of delicate notes of plum and rose with mysterious tonalities of Vetyver and Patchouli. 
So...? NYC is a fresh, assertive scent, supreme for making a big city statement. It is a fruity fragrance which opens with fizzy burst of lychee and peach, followed by an aromatic floral heart, wrapped in a creamy background of patchouli and praline. 

So...? London is a modern, feminine and distinctive fragrance which opens with sparkling notes of grapefruit, mandarin and apricot, and rises on a floral haze of jasmine, rose and violet. Base notes of sandalwood, vanilla and musk settle into a cool, crisp fragrance that perfectly embodies London's effortlessly cool style. 
So...? Rio reflects the vibrancy of the sun soaked city, and begins with zesty top notes of pineapple, mango and melon. Its tropical heart notes of hibiscus dance on the nose before settling into a fragrance that is both enigmatic and exotic. 

You've pretty much sampled the scents just by reading that; I can definitely smell them just by typing about each. The beautifully ombred bottles that house the 4 new eau de toilette 50ml fragrances retail at only €5.99 each, while the 75ml body fragrance at €1.99. Irresistible price points. The So...? Couture range is available at Penneys and selected pharmacies nationwide. 



The So...? FRESH-TIVAL beauty kit was also displayed, consisting of a selection of pocket-sized dry shampoos and body fragrances. Even though I'm not camping at EP this weekend (boo) I'm still delighted I get to sample two of the dry shampoos, just in time for college resuming tomorrow! This kit retails at €5.99 and is available at Penneys and selected pharmacies nationwide also. 


Three hours of cocktails, delish finger foods and chats.. I question why I ever felt nervous about going all by myself in the first place. I really enjoyed myself and how could I not, I was showered in so many lovely varieties of scents, while sharing a newfound bond with gals I have so much in common with. 



I am overwhelmed by the bounteous contents of my goodie bag, thank you so much Therese Ternstrom! Because of this, I have decided to host a little giveaway (my very first!) and share some of these goodies with two lucky winners. The conditions are easy:
