Michael Bublé By Invitation
It’s no secret that I’m a hopeless romantic. It’s in every note I sing and every song I write. The idea was to create a special ‘invitation’ to fans into my new world of fragrance. I’m inviting women to enjoy a beautiful scent that represents my personal taste and imagination. By Invitation is what I’d call ‘love in a bottle’
– Michael Bublé
Top Notes: Bergamot, Lemon, Red Fruits
Heart Notes: Lily of the Valley, Rose, Peony, Wild Jasmine
Base Notes: Patchouli, Cedarwood, Vanilla, Praline, White Amber, Musk
Perfumer: Karine Dubreuil-Sereni
The By Invitation bottle has been designed to look a little like a vintage perfume bottle; classic and elegant with it’s perfectly round shape and gold detailing on the edge, a little like the engraving on a fine piece of jewellery. The bottle top is a playful twist on the atomisers which used to adorn a ladies dressing table. By Invitation looks like a modern twist on a classic fragrance bottle.
When I hear the words, ‘celebrity fragrance’, my eyes usually glaze over, it’s not that I have a problem with celebrities creating fragrances, it’s more that they tend to be created for younger girls who love the scent of candy! I want a perfumery to put the same level of passion into creating a fragrance that I put into choosing them. I have been assured Michael Bublé put as much passion into his debut fragrance, as he does to his creating music. Michael Bublé is the ultimate romantic, so it makes sense he would want to create the perfect gift for the women in his life. By Invitation opens with juicy red fruits (berries, pomegranate and plum style accords) with a hint of fresh lemon and smoky bergamot. Very quickly the floral notes are introduced, heady red rose, exotic jasmine, pretty pink peony and and classic lily of the valley. At the base of the fragrance, it is heavy and rich with notes of earthy patchouli, sweet cedarwood, sensual amber and musk, as well as sweet and addictive notes of praline and vanilla. Michael Bublé By Invitation is playful, womanly, sophisticated and playful. I love the dark fruit at the top of the fragrance, the rich florals and the deep, sensual base notes, it’s less of a fruity-floral and more of a florential fragrance. Ladies, forget everything you thought you knew about celebrity fragrances and give this one a try, I think you will be surprised at how much you love it!
