5 fragrances for summer

It is literally the last breath of summer. Autumn is on our doorstep and as much as I love the colder season, I am yearning for the scent of the summer months. Of course there are no  rules when it comes to fragrance but you naturally want different depths to fit the seasons. Here are 5…

Coach the Fragrance

It is said that fragrance can visually be seen, a note can stimulate an important memory. Of our five senses, our sense of smell is the one that is mature from birth.  Coach embodied their self titled women’s fragrance with spokeswoman Chloe Grace Moritz. Young and an icon of now, the campaign was shot by…

Gold Essence

I don’t know about you, but it has been a while since I have  used a full hair regime from just one brand.  My bathroom vanity is a pick ‘n’ mix of my favourites  that nourish my family’s hair. I was introduced to the Montibello gold  Oil Essence Amber & Argan Range, which boasts a complete system infused with antioxidant rich…

Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower

It is not the end of summer yet. The industry is already looking to Autumn winter 2017 and I want to hold on to the essence of summer. Jimmy Choo illicit was already a beautiful summer scent, sexy sultry and fun. Jimmy Choo Illicit Flower is the prettier counterpart, both fresh and graceful. The fragrance opens…

So happy right now.  Balmain Exctatic Tiger Orchid was released back in May exclusive to Harrods, and is a light sweeter scent with an oriental-floral and woody character.  This is definitely…

Nugg

Pantone colour of the year 2016

2016 has been the year of the dual colour. Announced at the beginning of the year Pantone for the first time has given the honour to Rose quartz (dusky soft pink) and Serenity (warm pale blue).  Colour trends are important as they filter into most consumer products from the obvious homewares, down to fashion and…

Annick Goutal Eau D’Hadrien

Since I was introduced to Annick Goutal a little over a year ago, I am honestly  hooked on their elegant fragrance collection. Whether it is their classically pretty rose pom pon, or the heady les Absolus vanille Charnelle, there is something for all fans of the French perfume house. Each season I look to their new releases,…
