MAC Marcel Wanders: Air of Style Scent Concentrate

Air of Style ($30.00 for 0.07 fl. oz.) is a sweetened floral with a strong pull of jasmine. It has an initial strength, but it dries down to something incredibly subtle–probably too light. I’m glad it does weaken quickly, though, because it is rather cloying at first sniff. It’s not a groundbreaking scent; despite the abundance of notes, it is has a rather simple result. I have had readers in the past note that Air of Style is reminiscent of Michael Kors, but I don’t own it, so I couldn’t say for sure. I applied it two hours ago, but the majority of the scent has wafted away.

Top Notes: White pepper, dried red dates, wild peonies
Heart Notes: Tuberose, orange blossom, jasmin, ylang-ylang, orris
Bottom Notes: Touch of leather, antique woods, vetiver, amber crystals, tonka beans

The packaging is lovely. It’s a heavy, metal multifaceted pendant that hangs from a thin, black ribbon. For me, it would be too heavy to wear around my neck, but I tend to opt for very simplistic jewelry. I really enjoyed the weightiness of the pendant itself, because it feels more luxurious.  To me, this is the best packaging MAC has put the Air of Style scent in.  It was originally launched in an Italian glass vial, which while lovely, has to be stored in its box, as it will roll off your vanity.

It is rather small, as many bejeweled solid perfumes are, but inside contains more than the average ring/pendant solid perfume does. I wouldn’t say this is a value deal, but the price and quantity seem on par for MAC’s brand against higher-end brands with similar solid perfume offerings.

I pass on all of MAC’s fragrances since investing in Turquotic. Lovely scent but it doesn’t last for anything. If I’m spending $25 (or $30 in this case) on a scent, I want it to last for more than a few hours.

Considering Kate Von D’s Solid Perfume Ring has .04 oz of product in it its a better deal than that at also $30.

Aquolina Pink Sugar Creamy Perfume .31 oz which I have went for $29 CAN but the compact was plastic. ^_^

I’m a solid perfume junkie.

It might be – it’s not designed to be, but you might be able to take it out. I’m not sure how easy it would be to put something else in, given it isn’t a standard opening or anything.
