I have been hanging onto the last vestiges of summer, the carefree and sunny vibes of days gone by. But a new season is in the air, and we are well on our way to the final months of the year.

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.
