“Who says bigger’s always better?” asks the 5-foot-1 girl typing this sentence. (Incidentally, she’s usually the shortest person in the room.)
The new $15 Tocca To Go Mini Eau de Parfums combine teeny, tiny cuteness with Tocca’s signature fresh and flirty floral scents.
I stumbled upon three of these minis at the mall yesterday while cruising for Christmas tchotchkes. They were right next to a weird $500 white porcelain horse head in Anthropologie (so very Godfather!) and surrounded by a sea of $50 salt-and-pepper shakers.
Aren’t they cuter than cupcakes?
You may recall these same three minis in Cleopatra, Stella and Florence from last year, when Tocca was selling them together as the $45 Eau de Parfum Viaggio set, but this is the first time I can remember seeing them available separately.
The official fragrance notes…
- Stella — Blood orange, lily, white freesia, orchid, musk and sandalwood
- Florence — Gardenia, bergamot, violet, iris and blonde wood
- Cleopatra — Grapefruit, jasmine, tuberose, patchouli, amber and vanilla musk
I’ve been infatuated with Tocca ever since I met beautiful Bianca last year. I like to imagine their fragrances coming from a tiny estate-turned-perfumery in the middle of a field of flowers on a sunny Tuscan hillside, or someplace lovely like that.
They’re the kinds of scents that make me want to let down my hair and don a delicate dress and comfy shoes; I bet they’d make perfect stocking stuffers, too. To my nose, all three of them are like a breath of fresh air — girly, but not sugary sweet.
I also spotted these matching Cleopatra, Florence and Stella creams ($20 each). I put some Stella on before leaving the store, and I liked that it felt non-greasy and moisturizing.
If you’re curious about Tocca and would like to sniff more, Sephora’s website lists a couple of newer things from the line, including a fragrance called Graciella ($68); a set called Eau de Parfum Viaggio, which comes with mini versions of three of the company’s scents in Colette, Guilietta and Bianca ($45); a trio of rollerballs ($48) in Florence, Cleopatra and Colette; and the Love Yourself Fragrance Collection ($18), which comes with seven pocket-friendly eau de perfume sprays.
If you decide to Tocca or have Tocca’d before, inquiring minds want to know! What’s your favorite fragrance from the line?
