Chic and formal as Vanités

Miroir des Vanités by Thierry Mugler


This is the second review I'm writing on this exclusive line of Thierry Mugler. I say exclusive cause to my definition of niche, luxury or whatsoever, it is not so premium in quality but in presentation. As you all know this line has a short tail of distribution with almost higher than moderate price only shown in niche markets. Miroir des Vanités is the only masculine guy in the eightsome of the collection.
This item is a classy and dapper woody aromatic one with delicious zesty spicy main theme. It opens with crispy lemon cooperating with acrid quinine that comes from cinchona bark and mingles with soft dose of anise (not listed, only my assumption). The perfume grows and ages quickly on skin and settles on its heart layer with powdery creamy vibe of savory vetiver; highly attributed with some kind of spicy paste smelling like cinnamon as presented in Chanel Égoïste. It dries out in woodsy vetiver, dry and soft sweet like it has vanilla but since the notes are not listed nowhere, it's just a thought.


Miroir des Vanités, for its effervescent delicious citric air, is a fragrance you want to drink cold. It's dazzling and bright, so active, so vivacious,and full of positive feels. Like his sisters its a modern gourmand fragrance with twisted abstract and faintly mystical manner. Miroir des Vanités is a nice dapper choice for spring.
Longevity and sillage factors both are fairly strong.

Carpe Odor!
