“Somewhere in the rolling hills of the English countryside, nestled under a majestic canopy of oaks, the sun is gently rising over a country mansion. Two or three domestic servants are arduously at work drawing baths, opening curtains, lighting fires and viciously beating carpets in preparation for the first family gathering of the day.”
Introducing the Penhaligon’s Portraits Family, Chapter III of the very British affair.
With every personality distinctively unique from one another, I’ll like you to focus on “our French friend”, the seductively charming house guest of Countess Dorothea, Monsieur Beauregard.
The Story of Monsieur Beauregard
“Our French friend” is how this unknown but over-familiar character is typically introduced in the house of Lord George. His lingering gaze lets you know he’ll take things from here. Studiously ignored by the female members of the household – and not only because of the large gifts he receives from Lady Dorothea are a little too much — he is always where you least expect him, especially first thing in the morning and last thing at night…
Irresistible. Intoxicating. Addictive. These are the three best words to describe a scent so captivating. What does fragrance do for you? For me, it helps to compliment my character and the scent I choose usually reflects my personality, or if not, complements it.
I’m typically drawn to light rose, floral scents but my heart skipped a beat with the sweet honey notes of DKNY Nectar Love.
Like a bee captivated by the irresistible draw to a lush blooming flower, Nectar Love captures nature’s pull of undeniable attraction. This fragrance is a medley of floral fruity notes with extracts of honeycomb and neroli that delivers an addictive dose of delicious attraction – the perfect summer fragrance for her.
My invisible tattoo, my fragrance, Mon Guerlain.
Mon Guerlain, the House’s new fragrance, is created as a tribute to today’s femininity – a strong, free and sensual femininity, as inspired by Hollywood star, Angelina Jolie. The emotions and dreams that embody modern femininity have all been captured in this bottle by Thierry Wasser, in-house perfumer of Guerlain.
The fresh oriental fragrance is put together by a medley of exceptional raw materials from all over the world, including Carla Lavender from Provence, Sambac Jasmine from India, Album Sandalwood from Australia and Vanilla Tahitensis from Papua New Guinea. It’s a pretty interesting blend of ingredients, I must say, made much for the everyday working women.
(My beautiful personalised bottle with my initials)
Do you still remember how falling in love feels like? It’s the gush of euphoria, the intense emotions and the feeling that you and your partner are one against the world. Those are exactly the feelings Tory Burch’s latest fragrance, Love Relentlessly, seeks to ignite.
Tory Burch Love Relentlessly is a sparkling mix of intense yet addictive notes that captures the feeling of romantic love. Inspired by Burch’s parents herself, Love Relentlessly is an ode to an extraordinary love affair. “If I told you that I love you, would you hold it against me?” was what Burch’s father wrote to her mother, which he ran in the newspaper and signed ‘Love, Relentless.’ Burch’s parents were the most romantic couple she had ever known, and this sweet, romantic bottle of scent was created based on the loveliest relationship she witnesses everyday.
We are approaching the festive season in less than what, 2 weeks?! I was travelling in the United States, Los Angeles, for the last 7 days, so pardon for the lack of updates. With the beautiful Christmas lights and decorations, coupled with the chilly weather, the perfect fragrance to wear would be something woody, sweet and warm, like a cup of warm hazelnut latte. Well, that made me think of the Angel Muse by Mugler eau de parfum.
The Angel Muse opens up a new chapter in the Mugler history. It is a representative of the Mugler reinvention from its classic predecessor Angel by Thierry Mugler. In my opinion, it’s the perfect gift for the perfect woman in your life to celebrate this Christmas!
