Average Sephora Rating: 4/5 stars

Best Review: “I fell in love with the original Miu Miu fragrance a while back and every time a new one came out I would give them a try but there was always something missing. I can honestly say this is the BEST Miu Miu fragrance out right now. It has a very fresh, springtime scent to it and manages to be heavily floral while still staying light. If you're a fan of jasmine, honeysuckle, or orange blossom I would definitely give this a try. There's also a hint of pepper in this one but nowhere near as strong as the original fragrance. The bottle is so pretty, way better looking than the original Miu Miu, buy my only complaint is the actual sprayer is a little short so you can't depress it that much when you spray.” -TessaLeeLo via Sephora.com

Miu Miu Twist Eau de Parfum

$30(.33 oz), $71(1.0 oz), $97(1.7 oz), $125(3.4oz) at time of publication

This brand-new 2019 eau de parfum is deliciously floral and citrus with warm, woody undertones. Though Miu Miu Twist may seem like a typical fruity fragrance at first, it evolves as you wear it, allowing its more mature, sophisticated notes to emerge and blossom into a perfume that will attract countless compliments. Its retro-inspired, pink glass bottle may seem girly, but this fragrance is anything but. Because of its fruity notes, Miu Miu Twist is best suited for daytime, warm-weather use.

The Miu Miu Twist’s top note, apple blossom, offers a fruity scent with a hint of florals. Pink musk accord, its middle note, is a custom blend of scents that layers traditional warm musk with a hint of sweetness. Lastly, its base notes both create woody undertones that linger on the skin.

Top Note: Apple blossom

Middle Note: Pink musk accord

Base Note: Tonka bean, cedar wood

Average Sephora Rating: 3.8/5 stars

Best Review: “I have a hard time shopping for perfume online. I’m very picky about scents and normally HAVE TO smell it in person before choosing something. Miu Miu twist is exactly what I would have picked! It has a spicy smell that I love, but it’s also soft, delicate, and feminine. It’s floral and fruity, but not in an intense overbearing way. It seems like a scent that would be appreciated by people of many different perfume preferences. It’s a great neutral ground scent that isn’t bland and underwhelming. It’s got a clean fresh scent that I just adore. I highly recommend it and will be purchasing a big ole bottle!!” -Ssiowa via Sephora.com

Miu Miu L’eau Rosée Eau de Toilette

$28(.33 oz), $61(1.0 oz), $83(1.7 oz), $107(3.4oz) at time of publication

If you like sweet, lightly floral, feminine scents, this eau de toilette is for you! A gorgeously fresh, delicate, inoffensive perfume, the Miu Miu L’eau Rosée is a true crowd-pleaser. You’ll be able to catch a whiff of each of its different layers as this fragrance gracefully fades throughout the day, offering different blends of fresh scents as its notes grow and fade. One of the most visually appealing bottles on the market, you’ll want to perch the L’eau Rosée right at the front of your vanity.

The L’eau Rosée’s fragrance journey begins with a top note of blackcurrant, a fresh, almost tangy scent with a very distinctive aroma. As the blackcurrant fades, a subtle note of lily emerges, giving the fragrance its signature lightly floral scent. Finally, you’ll be able to smell just a hint of musk, which provides a sensual, sophisticated base to round out this perfume.

Top Note: Blackcurrant

Middle Note: Lily

Base Note: Musk

Average Sephora Rating: 3.8/5 stars

Best Review: “This is nothing like a typical "grandma" scent with heavy, cloying roses. This is light, sparkly and effervescent. There is a distinct sharpness to it but once it mellows out, it develops into just a lovely scent. It reminds me of being surrounded by beautiful lush roses with the warmth of the sun shining down on me while holding a bubbly glass of crisp champagne. I'd typically say this is more of a "summer" fragrance but a) there are no real rules about that & b) who wouldn't like some extra sunshine in their lives in the middle of winter.” -TamTam01 via Sephora.com

Miu Miu L’eau Bleue Eau de Parfum

$30(.33 oz), $71(1.0 oz), $97(1.7 oz), $125(3.4oz) at time of publication

A twist on the original Miu Miu fragrance, the L’eau Bleue is an experimental perfume for the woman who rejects the norm. Though its standout notes are fresh and dewy, it still remains sophisticated.

This nature-inspired fragrance invokes an after-rain earthiness combined with the scents of a freshly-bloomed field of flowers. However, what truly makes the L’eau Bleue unique is Miu Miu’s trademark scent, Akigalawood, which gives this perfume its signature peppery undertone. Its bottle has a baby-blue glass body with an accented translucent yellow cap.

When first sprayed, the L’eau Bleue’s top note, lily-of-the-valley, floats toward the nose with a burst of bright florals. The honeysuckle scent remains on the skin, lightly floral with a hint of nectar. If you concentrate hard enough, you’ll be able to smell the base note, Akigalawood, which leaves the skin with a subtle spicy touch.

Top Note: Lily of the valley

Middle Note: Honeysuckle

Base Note: Akigalawood

Average Sephora Rating: 3.7/5 stars

Best Review: “It's perfect for summertime. The Miu Miu L'eau Bleue is feminine, whimsical, bright, and edgy. This fragrance makes me reminds me of fun summer nights going out with the girls. If it was a song it would be "Summertime Sadness" by Lana Del Rey. If you're looking for a fun fragrance with a bit of edge this is it. It has captivating Lily of the Valley, the Honeysuckle brings the whimsy and it's edge and foundation is Akigalawood. I'm so happy I have it.” -Annabelly33 via Sephora.com

Miu Miu Eau de Parfum

$30(.33 oz), $71(1.0 oz), $97(1.7 oz), $125(3.4oz) at time of publication

You can’t talk about Miu Miu perfumes without mentioning their original, signature fragrance, the Miu Miu Eau de Parfum. Released in 2015, it polarized perfume-lovers who either were either turned off by its peppery kick or who adopted it as their new favorite fragrance.

The Miu Miu Eau de Parfum is fun yet classy, floral on the surface but with richly woody and spicy undertones. The only Miu Miu perfume with an opaque bottle, this signature scent’s packaging showcases its modern uniqueness.

This fragrance’s top note is lily-of-the-valley, a delightfully floral scent with a grounding base of almost grassy notes. Its dog rose middle notes provide an intoxicatingly flowery foundation, accented by a lingering scent of Akigalawood, a base note that truly grounds this perfume.

Top Note: Lily of the valley

Middle Note: Dog rose

Base Note: Akigalawood

Average Sephora Rating: 3.5/5 stars

Best Review: “Very floral, fresh and young! I bought the large bottle totally blind (I had major bottle envy at first sight), but was worried about the fragrance because of the seemingly polarizing opinions on it. I am picky with fragrances in general, so ordering scent unsmelled was pretty brave of me. I am relieved to say that this is a completely beautiful and surprisingly non-offensive scent that blooms with white flowers and a bit of fresh greenery and then eventually transforms into a really lovely retro nostalgic softer, slightly powdery scent that has just a hint of pepper to give it something unusual, but still retains it's very floral origins...I was really worried this was going to be overpowering, overly peppery or 'bug-spray'ish' but it's not at all. It's easy to wear and definitely works as both a day and night scent. Stoked I got the larger bottle.”
