Anna Sui Perfumes – Lovely Childish Fragrances for Ladies

Imagine yourself a world full of fairies and a river of sweets flowing down the way. This is what I think of when I hear one of Anna Sui’s perfumes.

One of the newest creations of Anna Sui is Flight of Fancy, a romantic blend of litchi, lemon and yuzu in the top notes and a woody – musky base. The peacock bottle cap is a sensational element of this glamorous packaging. Flight of Fancy is a light fruity fragrance, suitable for daywear.

The fairy perfume by Anna Sui – Secret Wish – is also a fruity fragrance. The lovely bottles hides notes like melon, peach, lemon and pineapple followed by woodsy elements like cedar and oak moss. The scent is very light and frankly a bit disappointing for what you would normally expect. It is rather suitable for the young target.

The ‘hippie’ Sui Love is a lovely fruity - floral fragrance. The perfume is less sweet than other Anna Sui scents. The perfume opens with Japanese Osmanthus, passion fruit, orange and apple and then develops into a more spicy fragrance because the pink pepper in the middle notes. Sui Love dries down with a combination of mush, nutmeg and vanilla. The bottle is very nice, probably Mariah (Carey) has one on her perfume collection. It is suitable for vacation time.

The purple Dolly Girl Bonjour L'Amour opens with an interesting cinnamon note, followed by some exotic notes like Texas rosewwod, Florida grapefruit, Italian melon (yummy!), orris root, coconut and amber. It is a unique scent you will not forget easily. It is a playful fragrance suitable for romantic dates.

The last but not least is an oriental vanilla called Sui Dreams. The lock – like blue bottle is a strange combination of fresh notes and vanilla. It is a creamy fragrance, not an ordinary vanilla scent you can buy everywhere. The bad part is that it doesn’t last very long, in fact you will need to carry the bottle with you if you want to wear it at a party.
