Fragrance Friday: Gilly Hicks Point Piper

If you haven't yet discovered the Gilly Hicks store in Westfield London (White City), I'd highly recommend it. The womens-only sister brand to Abercrombie & Fitch stocks mainly underwear and lounge wear and I love it because the quality is akin to the Abercrombie clothing, without the ridiculous prices. I've shopped there quite frequently since it opened last year, but have only just discovered another side to the store... their fragrances.

I'm a huge fan of Abercrombie's signature mens fragrance Fierce, but haven't fallen for any of the women's fragrances from any brands under the Abercrombie umbrella, until now...
Gilly Hick's newest fragrance launch is 'Point Piper'. The first thing I noticed was the gorgeous bottle. It's actually very similar to the Elie Saab bottle (which I also love). It looks very neat and clean but feels very heavy and luxurious at the same time.

The scent itself is extremely fruity, but not overly 'immature'. It feels a little more grownup than your typicaly fruity scents, but remains fun and youthful with notes of pear, mandarin and guava flower. This is exactly the kind of scent I am drawn to and it's secured a firm place on my Christmas wish list this year! The Eau de Parfum only comes in 50ml and is priced at £38, available in Gilly Hicks in store and online. There is currently only one store in the UK (Westfield London, White City) but their second store in Cardiff is opening in December.
Disclaimer: I don't own this (yet!)
