Tom Ford released the Private Blend Les Extraits Verts Collection last year, which comprised of 4 green-themed fragrances. 3 of them were released here in Singapore last Fall [read here], and the 4th – Vert de Fleur has only very recently hit counters.

If there’s 1 thing I’ve come to learn, it’s that Tom Ford never fails to put sexy into beauty. The latest Soleil Collection for Summer 2017 comprises of a small but tightly curated color makeup designed to make traveling so much easier, and a Blanc Bath & Body line to make it seem like you’ve spent all day stretching out and soaking up the sun.

It has been a long time since Guerlain released a new fragrance for the everyday woman… In the recent years we’ve seen several flankers for La Petite Robe Noir (reviewed here and here), but whilst the caricaturized couture shadow of LPRN dresses the woman, the new Mon Guerlain takes on a personal touch and celebrates the multi-faceted modern woman.

I am sitting on a train as I type this, yes, I am leaving snowy Cologne behind and heading over to Amsterdam for the weekend. I had initially thought I’d stay indoors huddled up, and catch up on the blog, read, and couch potato my way through the weekend; but let’s face it, it’s not very often that I get an entire weekend free to myself, open to all possibilities. Time to do with as I please, an easy train ride to some of the most exciting cities of the world literally just at my doorstep, and so much of the world I have yet to see. So, I’m plucking up my grit, shaking out of my comfy sweatpants, and going exploring on my own. And in the same spirit of freedom and inspiration, I thought it might be apt to share with you my latest obsession in the fragrance department – an Unnamed bottle from an insouciant Swedish brand (a little north of where I am heading) Byredo.

I’ve been wanting to try something from Guerlain’s exclusive L’Art et La Matière Collection ever since they were made available here in Singapore last year, but never found one that I could identify with until now. The L’Art et La Matière Collection was first released in 2005, and represents Guerlain’s goal of creating olfactory art through the use of the finest raw materials in perfumery. It is also a pun after the French expression L’Art et la Manière – the art and manners; and for me, it is perhaps the most modern in style from the vast range of fragrances that Guerlain has to offer. And the latest member of the collection best represents that to me – Neroli Outrenoir.
