A rosy affair at Escentials

As you can see from my previous posts, Valentine’s is coming!!

For the girls, if you are sick of receiving rose because they die easily, why not hint for something made from roses instead?

For the guys, oh come on, be creative! You don’t really have to give stalks and stalks of roses on that day!

You can hop on to Escentials because they have a lot of products that are roses related. You will be so spoilt for choices!

My favourite out of the entire roses collection was from Diptyque! Eau Plurielle & Rosafolia – Rosafolia is limited edition so while stocks last.

Eau Plurielle is the first multi use fragrance from Diptque where you can use it on the skin or fabric. The scent smells like fresh linen that has long been laid on a bed of ivy and Turkish roses (200ml, $130).

The candle – Rosfolia (190g, $110) is gracefully diffused at the heart of Turkish rose absolute and sharpened by the vitality from a hint of geranium. The pretty cup/glass can be reused for other forms of decorations once it runs out of wax.

The scented Oval ($76) on the bottom left can be hung in a wardrobe. It releases the aromas of French Garden for months.

There are also a lot of fragrances for the scent of rose.

And cosmetics……

Or even body wash, lotions or hand wash!!

Tadahhhh! Haven’t I just given you more tips for Valentine’s?

Escentials is located at Paragon #03-02/05 or at Tangs Orchard Level 1 🙂

Christmas Shopping with Escentials

We are kinda stuck for all the Christmas gifts because there are simply too many choices around!! I wish I can get them all in one shop.

Till I saw all the goodies Escentials were carrying. They had presents that are suitable for both genders!

They are also going cuteee this time round. Escentials collaborated with Mina Kwon on their window and store display. She has worked with a number of reowned artistes such as Pharrel Williams, Chris Brown and more. Now, Escentials looked even more attractive than before!

The first thing that caught my attention was this box of soap – Extra Pur Discovery Box. I thought they were chocolates at first glance. The colorful and chocolate-liked packaging is really attractive and ideal. More important, Marseille soaps are made of vegetable oils.

A box of 10 for only $28!

They also have it in travel sized version – Extra Pur. This premium gift is retailing at $86 for 10 soaps (50ml each).

The fragrance wardrobe by Maison Francis for Her and him. Each box contains 8 11ml refills.

Her – Aqua Universalis, Aqua Universalis Forte, Aqua Vitae, Oud, APOM femme, Lumiere Noire femme, Amyris femme, féminin Pluriel.

Him – Aqua Universalis, Aqua Universalis Forte, Aqua Vitae, Oud, APOM homme Lumiere Noire homme, Amyris homme, masculin Pluriel.

REN has gifts of different sizes. From Mini Gift Set to Neroli Duo, Rose Duo and Luxury Rose.

Mini gift set is retailing at at $48 which includes their best-selling Moroccan Rose range and their new scent for 2014, uplifting Revivo-Tonic.

The set below you see is the Rose Duo Set. REN’s multi-award winning Moroccan Rose Otto Body Wash is one of those things that makes life just a little rosier. Twinned with Moroccan Rose Otto Body Lotion, the gift set is currently retailing at $88. It comes in a metal tin box so it saves you the effort of wrapping it up.

I love love love Penhaligon’s miniature fragrance sets! They looked so cute and vintage. It comes in 2 different sets – Ladies and Genetlemen, which both has 5 miniature bottles each.

Ladies – Vaara, Malabah, Ellenisia, Iris Prima and Quercus (in a red tin)

Gentlemen – Blenheim Bouquet, Juniper Sling, Bayolea, Sartorial and Opus 1870 (in a blue tin)

Each tin is retailining at $90.

Juniper Sling Collection ($300) and Artemisia Collection ($260) are also available.

Juniper Sling is rather interesting as it is an intoxicating fragrance inspired by London Dry Gin.

And of course, Annick Goutal has something too!

They have different sets from Eau d’Hadrien to Petite Cherie to Vent de Folie and more.

Below is a beautiful picture of the gift set of Eau d’Hadrienat $210.

Diptyque candles Holiday Season Candle set at $168 featuring resin, winter and spice.

Miniature sets are available as well.

StriVectin also came up with a Holiday Kit 2014 Perfect Skin Trio for Face, Eyes & Lips. The set is only retailing at $120 with $171 worth of products.

Radical Start Set ($45) – Age-defying Exfoliating Pades, Advanced Peptide Antioxidant Serum, Anti-aging Restorative Moisture and Eye Relive Creme.

They have more than what you see here. Head over to Escentials if you need to do some Christmas shopping! Best option for last minute Christmas shopping as well since they are already nicely packed!

Find them at Paragon level 3 🙂

Escentials – Glam Glow, By Terry & Annick Goutal

Look of the day for Glam Glow, By Terry and Annick Goutal Event at Escentials! Yup, It was a 3-in-1 event.

I know the current hype is all about the korean beauty brands and this post is a little different. Instead of introducing K-beauty products, let us shift our attention over to Western brands like the three that I had already mentioned above.

I like to start off with the product which caught my eye first. Yes, Glam Glow ThirstyMud caught me and I can literally see them in every Sephora. ThirstyMud is the latest addition to the family.

Black: YouthMud
Silver: SuperMud

They work like sleeping pack. As the name says – ThirstyMud, is obvious enough for hydration. It firms as you sleep too.

Following by By Terry.

All their makeup products come in a lot of different shades!

This is the Aqua-Print Eyeshadow.

A pencil eyeshadow always make things so much easier.


This bottle of liquid is not some nail lacquer or anything of such. It is actually a “blusher”!

By Terry Tea to Tan.

Drop a few drops on the cheek and spread it evenly. It is really watery, hence, you can spread it easily. It is also available in Cheek to Cheek (rosy pink).

The brands are available at Escentials, Paragon #03-02/05 or Tangs Orchard Level 1.
