Miami marks its spot on the map this week when Pucci makes its South Florida fragrance debut, The Palms gives football widows a great escape and our city becomes a ski destination, thanks to The Sports Club/LA.
BEAUTY: It’s no secret Miami loves bold patterns. So, when Pucci hosted a luncheon for its Miss Pucci Intense fragrance at designer Lisa Pliner’s posh abode, it was love at first scent for the Pucci patterned-adorned ladies who lunched. Even the seat covers were covered in Pucci pattern. The centerpiece, of course, was the brand’s latest fragrance, Miss Pucci Intense Eau de Parfum. The dark, bubble-shaped bottle houses a bouquet of florals, like magnolia, orange blossom and jasmine sambac. Think of this Miss Pucci as a more upscale version or the original. Add in notes of winter lemon, vanilla and patchouli and top off with a powdery finish, and Miss Pucci isn’t just Intense, she’s irresistible, as well. GET IT: $60 for 1.0 ounces, $82 for 1.7 ounces, $98 for 2.4 ounces. Available at Sephora, 721 Collins Ave., Miami Beach; 305.532.0904.
