New Fragrance Alert: Moschino Cheap and Chic
There’s nothing like a good fragrance launch to get us all excited here at Grazia Towers, although when Moschino broke the news that they are launching another one of their cult Olive Oyl fragrances, you can imagine how excited we were. The latest bottle, Chic Petals, will boast a red and white colour scheme and will be in the classical quirky shape of Popeye cartoon character Olive Oyl. With top notes of strawberry, pomegranate and ginger and middle notes of orchid and iris, this is one zesty and fun fragrance that will see you through the imminent summer months in true Cheap and Chic style. We can’t wait.
