Fall is upon us again, and in many ways, it is my favorite season of the year. I love the cooler climate combining with a certain richness in the air to emit a beguiling fragrance. Last year, Jo Malone London took us deep into the English forest; and this time around we are taking a walk through the woodlands as evening falls… twining between trees and shrubs, honeysuckle flourishes. Its red tinted blooms and fruits emitting a sweet, heady scent that changes throughout the day.

Tom Ford has always been known for his irreverence towards societal norms and overt sexuality. And in a stroke of marketing brilliance, Mr. Ford has decided to call his latest Private Blend fragrance exactly as it is – Fucking Fabulous.

Nothing spells summer more perfectly than tropical colours so bright you can barely open your eyes, and an air so heavy with the fragrance of ripened fruity that you can almost taste it. This season, Jo Malone has managed to encapsulate the quintessence of summer in a bottle that is the most exceptional yet!

Coco Mademoiselle is one of the most iconic fragrances of our generation… every woman has at least given it a whiff if not owned it at some point in their lives. So distinctive that even my male colleague and the lady working at my neighbourhood café are able to identify it from a distance. It is hard to imagine anything that could top it, and Chanel has not released any flankers in the 17 years since Coco Mademoiselle was released… until now.
Coco Mademoiselle sparked a new olfactory movement when it was released in 2001, with its two-tiered composition that perfectly balances the freshness of citrus with the sensuality of patchouli. Chanel had come up with the idea of redistilling patchouli to obtain a fraction that is pared down and dusted off, leaving only the thrill of its heart. Now in 2018, Chanel introduces the Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense that pushes the boundaries to a new limit.

Jo Malone always brings us on the most wondrous journeys through nature’s beautiful landscapes. From the mystical oak forest of last fall, Jo Malone now transports us to sun-dappled golden fields filled with ripened grains and wild flowers. A collection unlike any others before, the new Jo Malone English Fields celebrates the essence of the English landscape in 5 sophisticated scents.

Love is in the air! February is always a sweet season because of the romantic celebrations, and I hope you have something nice planned. When I was preparing the Valentines’ Day gift guide a few days ago [here] I forgot to include something magical from the mystical gardens of Rouge Bunny Rouge. And to correct that wrong, I’d like to introduce you to this elegant Collector’s Coffret of Fragrannt Confections (how lovely the names!) today.
