CHANEL · Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense

 

The third iteration in the series, Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Perfume Intense has grown up and evolved … much like Keira Knightly — the face of this fragrance for a decade now — has, as well. With its unique mix of seductive playfulness and elegant sophistication, perfumer Olivier Polge has created a fragrance worthy of the brand’s storied history, but more importantly, has also created something that just smells so.damn.good. (PS: I’m not going to lie: I actually squealed in delight when I saw the little makeup bag and notebook included in the press kit).

Mugler · Aura

 

When Angel by Mugler originally launched in 1992, it was all I wore and to this day whenever I’m feeling nostalgic and spray some on, I still get a ton of compliments on its vanilla/chocolatey yumminess.

Fragrance Edit: Tiffany & Co. Eau de Parfum

 

Judging from the multitude of blue boxes in the above photo (of which there may actually be even more around here), it’s safe to say that I am a Tiffany & Co. fan, so I was naturally intrigued to learn if this bespoke fragrance would live up to my expectations … as well as this storied brand’s 180-year history. Basically, this scent is exactly what I imagined a luxury jewelry retailer would smell like, and I mean that in the very best possible way.

Christian Louboutin Beauté New Fragrance Sizes for 2017

 

Last year Christian Louboutin Beauté launched three fragrances (80 ml each) in what must surely be the most luxurious and exquisite packaging to date; in fact, you needed a key to release each bottle from its acrylic base. Utterly display-worthy to be sure, but not exactly portable. New for Fall 2017, the brand has just launched the same three perfumes but in more travel-friendly bottle sizes (30 ml each) … without skimping on any details. The stunning media box I was fortunate enough to receive, contains all three — but all are in fact available for individual sale. By the way, for those who like to plan early, note that Christmas is 9 weeks away …

Burberry · Blush Make-Up Collection

 

The latest addition to the My Burberry fragrance family is the new Blush version and as the perfect accompaniment, the brand has also released a capsule Blush Make-Up Collection. Shades of pink are one of the most flattering and uplifting colours you can wear along the face, providing a brightness that you just can’t get with other tints and while utterly girly, there’s enough earthy mauve touches here to keep things from spinning into frothy territory. Thank God.
