DKNY MYNY FRAGRANCE IS A NEW YORK DREAM COME TRUE!
I think I might have made it clear at some point over the last five years/every single day on this blog that the dream of visiting New York City is pretty much my lifelong goal. I can’t imagine the city at all, it seems like a real dream to me. I want to experience it more than I can even begin to put into words. I actually started looking at a bunch of these beautiful photos of the city the other day and burst into tears simply because I was so overwhelmed with how indescribably beautiful the vibrancy of the busiest, most iconic city in the world is. Ah, to be a woman. Well actually, being a woman isn’t all that dull, because enter in the brand new DKNY Fragrance, MYNY, which brings a little bit of personality to the city we’ve all seen in the movies.
The way I imagine New York City, is the beating heart of America. The life and soul of the party. London, but a thousand times taller, 200% bigger, and with a coffee and a bagel to boot. I want to stroll through Times Square, gazing up at the neon lights, twirling my hair in the New York breeze. I want to immerse myself in the linear streets, get lost in real American dive bars listening to the latest punk band. I want to eat pancakes and cupcakes until I can’t move, and climb skyscrapers until my heart bursts at the sight of a million beautiful twinkling lights. I’ve always felt an affiliation with America, and a love for the big Apple, in particular. It seems to me like the ideal place to be in fashion, to love creativity and to live and breathe the Internet. I could not think of a better place for a fashion blogger to be in their lives, and I regularly read a ton of beautiful New York bloggers whilst daydreaming silently that one day… it could be me.
MYNY for me resonated with me so much because the fragrance itself actually embodies the shape of New York. With it’s heart shaped base and tall skyscraper shaped top, it looks like an art deco style interpretation of the city, and the bottle is unrivalled in design. The fragrance itself is fresh and young, capturing in a bottle the very heart of the new generation scene within NYC. I can tell the concept, the scent and the design have blended together beautifully and it’s a lovely piece of fragrance art. The smell is quite sweet, with a top note of raspberry, pink pepper and galbanum. Heart scents are freesia and jasmine, and the base notes are patchouli (love!), musk and vanilla. All come together to combine for the perfect New York girl, that makes the city her NY.
MYNY made my heart long for New York even more than it already did, whilst bringing a beautiful little piece of the city onto my dressing table. I had a real lovely experience logging on to the MYNY social hub, where I made my own heart, full of beautiful photos of NYC, combined with a few of my happy little face! You can do the same, by clicking onto their hub here, and making your own heart, too. I really hope that one day soon… I can make another heart with all my own pictures of the city. Sigh, a girl can dream! What a beautiful fragrance and a lovely campaign from DKNY, i’ve really fallen for the entire thing. What do you think about DKNY MYNY?
