Right so, the ru­mour is that cer­tain French clas­sic fra­grances have been re­for­mu­lated so that they’re cheaper to pro­duce — al­though the re­tail prices have rock­eted. Hmmm!

This is def­i­nitely not the case with the Mu­gler Les Ex­cep­tions fra­grance col­lec­tion — which in­cludes Hot Cologne, be­low right, €170 — ex­clu­sive to Brown Thomas. So I’d like to say a big thank you to Mu­gler for bring­ing two spec­tac­u­lar per­fume de­sign­ers — Olivier Polge and Jean-Christophe Her­ault — to­gether to cre­ate this col­lec­tion that I am ut­terly hooked on.

The col­lec­tion is rem­i­nis­cent of clas­sic per­fumes, with a mix of flo­ral, musk, ori­en­tal and fern scents. I first found them in the Mar­vel Room in Brown Thomas at Christ­mas, and couldn’t get enough of them, as I preyed and sprayed at the counter con­stantly when I was in town.

Ob­vi­ously it’s the scent I adore wear­ing, but the pack­ag­ing and bot­tle de­sign are equally stun­ning, with the clas­sic sim­plic­ity of the sharp, clean lines of the sim­ple glass bot­tle.

Hot Cologne is the lat­est hit in the range, and, as you would ex­pect, it’s se­ri­ously sophis!
