Carolina Herrera 212 VIP hits the shelves

Wednesday, 5 October 2011

Bloody hell! I just found out that Carolina Herrera is 72 years old!

Call me gran again and I’ll rip off your ear… 

Despite being old enough to be your gran, Ms. Herrera still hasn’t lost her super-stylish touch; her new fragrance, Carolina Herrera 212 VIP, (R715 for a 50ml eau de parfum), looks seriously hot, packaged in a uber-bling-y golden capsule-style bottle. Could totally see it sitting on Gwen Stefani’s dressing table…

Are you on the list? This is a private party!

As for the fragrance itself, it’s a zexy cocktail of passion fruit, rum, musk, gardenia and vanilla. If you like attention-getting, sweet, musky florientals, go give this baby a bash!

    With CAROLINA! You’ll never go wrong… And i love that her 212 range kinda have distinct scent, i was once at a shop and cant help but to ask the lady what pefume she has on and i was surprise when she said its 212 which i thought it reminds me of the first 212 that came out. My husband uses the 212 when he was courting me, 15 yrs ago. And up until now he sticks to that scent which e fell in love with.
