Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum

Hi there! Today’s post is about this Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum. Mirage contains the following notes: elemi, orange and mandarin (top notes), vetiver, rose and jasmine (heart notes), and amber, sandalwood and vanilla (base notes).

Mirage is one of those fragrances that cannot be described quickly or easily. It is spectacular. It is unique. I’d say this is the fragrance that Thierry Mugler (RIP, TM!) would have created for Moira Rose! The overall feel of Mirage is spicy, green, balsamic and mysterious. While vetiver and rose play important roles in this fragrant drama, the green, resinous and almost medicinal shades of the elemi note are the stars of the show. I can smell the elemi note on me for hours – and I’m loving it!

I think that Oriflame Mirage Eau De Parfum is one of the best fragrances I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling. I will treasure my 50ml bottle (this means that I’ll use the fragrance, but I won’t waste it on random trips to the grocery store or the dentist, etc) because – unfortunately – Mirage has been discontinued. 😢
