Luxury lingerie/hosiery/swimwear specialists Agent Provocateur-hosted beauty editors to a bubbly reception ---

Perrier-Jouet Champagne-kept spirits sparkling

at its spacious boutique----with generous sniffs of the new day fragrances lending an aromatic air-winning nods of approval from all attendees we met.

the three scents got tested

We are major users of fragrance-and fairly opinionated too---

Lee Davis and colleague-from Worth Paris USA

The delectable scents available:

Agent Provocateur 'Eau Provocateur'-a daytime version of the original-with citrus notes, fresh new florals Muguet and Orange Flower, base notes of Myrrh, Vanilla and Tonka Bean

Agent Provocateur L'Agent 'Eau Provocateur' citrus accords of Bergamot, Leaf Accord (fresh ut green leaves), Mandarin, Apple, Melon and Peach-with floral middle notes (Jasmin, Rose, Tuberose, Magnolia, Freesia and Ylang, base notes of Musk, Patchouli, Sandalwood and Amber Crystals

Agent Provocateur Maitresse 'Eau Provocateur' notes of Rose, Jasmin Sambac, Iris-with light green notes of Acacia, and green notes of Granny Smith Apples (really!)

...all have layered, complex aromas...that are light enough for daytime wear, we thought---and exotically enticing-BUT not over-whelming-as to be jus right for summery high temps too.

INFO: The new 'Eau Provocateur' Collection from Agent Provocateur is available April 15th, 2012 in select stores and online. Price: $70 - 50ml Eau De Toilette Spray
