Michael Buble By Invitation Rose Gold Perfume Review - 1

Way back in October 2016, I reviewed Michael Buble's debut fragrance for women, By Invitation. As I made very clear in that blog post, I loved everything about that perfume. And, in fact, I still do now, although by this point there is not a lot of it left! So naturally, I was delighted to be offered the opportunity to review the new version - By Invitation Rose Gold*. After all, everyone knows that a sure-fire way to make a good thing even better is to turn it rose gold!

From the box to the bottle, the packaging is pretty much identical to the original fragrance, the only differences being the addition of the words "rose gold", and, of course, the variation in colour, with all yellow gold details from the first version being transformed to a pretty pink. I am a huge fan of the way this looks and think the style of the bottle is striking and very glamorous, so I'm not surprised that the Michael Buble team decided not to mess with a good thing by changing the packaging too much. It really is a beautiful addition to any dressing table.

As for the fragrance, it is of course a little different to the first By Invitation, but similar enough to be recognisable. Opening with magnolia, red fruits and granit pear, it honestly smells good enough to eat on first spritz. Like the original, it is very feminine, but ever so slightly lighter, less sweet, and with almost an exotic twist coming from the pear. The heart notes are rose, peony and black plum, so again you get this beautiful fragrance with a hint of edible deliciousness beneath, and it shares the same addictive praline and vanilla base notes as By Invitation. This is the part of the perfume that lingers on your skin for hours after you've first applied it - warm and surprisingly sophisticated.

If the original fragrance was rich and full enough to make an impact through the winter months, then By Invitation Rose Gold is its perfect summer partner. It's a little bit lighter, with slightly fruitier notes and a hint of spice to it as well. I love it just as much, perhaps even a little more, than the original and am very happy to have both in my collection.

Have you tried either of these perfumes? What are your favourite scents to wear in the warmer months?

  4. I am a lost cause when it comes to perfumes, I have been using the same one for years and absolutely have no nose for them.

  8. Wow I had no idea Michael Buble even made perfumes! And it sounds like he got it on point too. I haven't tried any celeb perfumes since the first Britney Spears one so I probably should try a new one out hahah
