Dior Unwrapped

Maybe you’re lying by the fireplace gloriously overfed on Nanna’s yorkshire pudding, scrollaxing through the ‘puppies of instagram’ hashtag.  Or even comfortably nuzzled into one of those extra large bean bags on a sunny beach somewhere in Bali, sipping mojito’s with your bestie avoiding the fam and all of their trimmings.  Just as an FYI,

Completely in love with my new sunnies from Tom Ford (found at SmartBuyGlasses). Lately I’m really in to big sunglasses, like my Celine shadow sunglasses.

Les Parfums

Earlier in 2016 when I visited Tokyo with Louis Vuitton for the ‘Volez, Voguez, Voyagez’ Exhibition there were whispers in the air of a possible perfume launch, the first time in nearly 90 years that LV would return to the fragrance realm. As we were taken on a private tour around the exhibition there were subtle hints throughout […]

Bespoke Perfume Making At The Experimental Perfume Club

Everyone should have at least one signature scent, a fragrance that your friends get a whiff of and instantly know is you. Even better is to have one that is unique to you.

Alaïa by Alaïa

The sandy dunes were hot under foot and the wind was sharp and abrasive.  Sand follicles were skipping across the surface and cutting snake like repetitions into the undulating form of the desert as the heat radiated some kind of heady mirage that could only been seen in person by the human eye. With a […]

Modern Muse in Hong Kong

Modern Muse in Hong Kong Travel Editorial featuring Estée Lauder Modern Muse Le Rouge Gloss Eau de Parfum It’s one of those truisms so easy to assimilate into one’s reality – like the fact that egg tarts hold the joy of life, or that vacay brain thrives on longer purse strings – that certain stimuli of the senses have mystical powers over the human mind. For example, that colours can influence mood and perception, and scents can evoke powerful feelings. Here in Hong Kong, whether such postulations are based in science is largely irrelevant. Notwithstanding its vertical concrete habitats, neon sign forests, and other such demonstrations of its ultra-modernity, the tradition (or perhaps, superstition) of the colour red is faithfully observed. It is used to signify luck and prosperity in life, power and rightfulness in politics, and sexual desire in love.  But for the Chinese, rather than being a show of prevailing confidence, it is a gesture in invitation of the same, or, even, in expectation. One needs only to observe the concrete and glass facades of Hong Kong’s islands, greeting each other each night across the harbour with an extravagant light show, aflood in the colour red. Amongst that […]

The Ex Nihilo Demi-Bespoke Experience

I recently had the opportunity to try the Ex Nihilo demi-bespoke experience. It’s rare to be able to encounter such a unique perfume consultation, not because the 6th floor of Harrods is a restricted shopping zone but because the experience itself is unlike any other. Your senses are overwhelmed in a measured way. To begin […]

BEAUTY / ONE MILLION

It’s golden! One of my favourite perfumes of this moment: Pacco Rabanne’s Lady Million. A golden bottle in the shape of a diamond. What’s not to like? Somehow I always choose this scent in the night time. Whether it’s because I’m going out to dinner with the boyfriend or hitting the town with my girls. It’s just the perfect finishing touch after getting all dressed up and doing your ‘going out’ make up. Or is that just me? Having a fragrance for every occassion or part of the day?      

#WEEKEND

#WEEKEND! I got all my essentials ready to get through this Sunday morning. And what are your plans today?

Signature Scent

Chanel No 5 – my signature scent for the past 11 years. While a lot of people call it an old lady smell, to me it is one of the very few perfumes I really like (and I’ll just take the “old” part as classic ;-). Over the past few

A Light Fragrance

Jo Malone – Wood Sage & Sea Salt Cologne I had a bespoke consulatation with Jo Malone back in June whilst on The Perfect Hen Do and I’ve been wearing this fresh fragrance every day since. It’s a lot lighter than my usual, Laboratory Perfume’s Amber Eau de Toilette, which is a much warmer, richer […]

Summer Fragrance

I rarely deviate from the perfume I wear everyday but I’m looking for a summer fragrance, something to wear on holiday. Drawn to the beautiful packaging, I had to try Byredo. So yesterday, on a quiet morning in Liberty, I sidled up to the Byredo counter and started spraying every visible area of my skin. […]

Chanel N˚5

As Gisele Bunchen paddled into the surf with a black Chanel surfboard underneath her in the most recent Chanel N˚5 campaign by Baz Luhrmann, all that we could think was that’s “The one that I want”.  With this magnificent campaign in mind I recently put pen to paper to create an illustration for Chanel featuring their model […]
