Springtime Scents for Mother's Day

beauty news March 06, 2013

It's Mother's day on Sunday and we think the perfect gift to give is fragrance because it's a luxury item you're least likely to buy for yourself! That being said, fragrance is a very subjective thing, so when buying for others it's best to go for fragrances with either soft floral, fruit or vanilla notes as these are the most universally popular and perfect for spring.

For beautiful fresh florals suitable for everyday, we love Marc Jacobs Daisy, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle and Chloé Love which is a divine milky floral. There are also some fantastic fragrance sets which make great gifts, check out ones by Estee Lauder and Clarins below. Alternatively, if you're looking for a very specific scent or particular note 'rose' for example, Jo Malone should not be missed and all fragrances come in gorgeous gift boxes.

Robert Pattinson Lands Fragrance Deal

Fashion News October 31, 2012

Kristen Stewart has a high profile campaign with Balenciaga, but it seems she is not the only Twilight star with a fragrance deal. E! Online is reporting that Robert Pattinson has signed a $12 million deal with Christian Dior. The actor joins the likes of Natalie Portman, Jude Law and Charlize Theron who have all previously been the face of Dior fragrances. Pattinson often wears Dior Homme on the red carpet, so it wouldn't be an enormous surprise if he decided to work with the French fashion house. To put the deal in to perspective, Brad Pitt recently landed $7 million for his Chanel campaign. Neither Pattinson nor Dior have confirmed the deal yet, but would you like to see RPattz in a fragrance advert?

Brad Pitt for Chanel is Finally Here

Fashion News October 15, 2012

After months of speculation and the release of the teaser ad, Chanel have finally unveiled images of the latest brand ambassador Brad Pitt. The actor was shot by Joe Wright for the video and Steven Klein for the monochrome images for Chanel no 5. Pitt, who is the first male spokesperson for the perfume, commented, “What’s important to remember about CHANEL N°5 is how revolutionary this fragrance is; when it was introduced, it broke all the rules. N°5 has always been the most iconic women’s fragrance. That’s what I see being the appeal of this campaign; it goes beyond the abstract of emotion or beauty to evoke what is timeless: a woman’s spirit.” Good way to start the week, don't you think?

Shop a James Bond Inspired Wishlist

Menswear October 15, 2012

There's just over a week to go until the world premiere of Skyfall at London's Royal Albert Hall. The latest James Bond film starring Daniel Craig and Javier Bardem is set to attract a royal audience next week ahead of it's release on 26th October. Excitement has been building around the release for months, but the recent unveiling of the official song by Adele has got us so hyped up that we can only drink Martinis, shaken not stirred of course. With Christmas just around the corner, there are sure to be plenty of Skyfall related gifts on offer, but what could be better than an official James Bond fragrance (£32)? Alternatively, for something a bit more subtle you could opt for platinum stripe martini glasses (£10) or Mulberry deerskin driving gloves (£195). You can shop more James Bond inspired gifts below.
