In the heat of the night

Feel relaxed today, following a hectic work week and ahead of a big Saturday night out, with Cochine Saigon White Jasmine & Gardenia Candle.

cochine-white-jasmineWith 50 hours of burn time and a floral scent, this will take you away from cold winter reality and to warmer climes.

This elegant fragrance evokes the lush floral scents that infuse the sun-filled streets and gardens of Saigon. White petals of Jasmine, Gardenia and Peony combine to unfold an enchanting aura that is soft yet elegant. Jasmine thrives in the heat of southern Vietnam where the petals are picked after nightfall when their fragrance is most intense.

Cochine candles are made using the finest essential oils, eco-friendly cotton wicks and the creamiest botanical wax from renewable resources, a more natural alternative to paraffin wax. Elegantly packaged in Cochine signature gift boxes, Cochine candles will add style and luxury to any home, creating a delicately evocative and inspiring atmosphere.

Themed Thursday – Magnificent marigold

For a flowery hit to get you happily to Spring, look no further than a fragrance that has marigold notes as part of its blend.

EL_BeaFirst up is Estée Lauder Beautiful Eau de Parfum Spray. A tender bouquet of Lilies and Roses, Marigold and Orange Blossoms…all warmed with a rich, woody base and brightened with a touch of citrus.A perfume which is romantic, tender, memorable. A floral fragrance it has top notes of rose, mandarin, lily, tuberose and marigold; middle notes of orange flower, muguet, jasmine and ylang-ylang, and a base comprising sandalwood, vetiver and amber.

Or how about Ghost Eclipse, a fragrance that will awaken the senses and evoke a feeling of femininity. This intoxicating and addictive fruity-floral fragrance has a top of Bergamot, Marigold and mixed fruits; a heart of Lotus, Freesia and Rose, and a rich Amber and Musk base.Ghost_Ecl

DolGa_IntensoFor the boys, there is Dolce & Gabbana Intenso Eau De Parfum. This fragrance is elegant and pure, the iconic signature of a contemporary man. It is a woody aromatic fragrance that opens with green accents of Basil and Lavender, floral notes of Marigold and Geranium, and fresh aquatic notes. Its profound appeal is defined by a brand new discovery in the olfactory world: the Moepel accord, which gives the signature and character to the scent, enveloping it with luxurious floral, balsamic, and honey accents. The tobacco masculinity is further defined with soft dry notes from Absolutes of Hay and Bran. Intensity and strength come from the profound combination Labdanum, Sandalwood and Cypress. A contrast of fresh, warm and rich, that completes the composition of the fragrance and emphasises its woody charm.

CK_EterAnd last but by no means least, may I recommend Calvin Klein Eternity Eau de Parfum. A fresh yet interesting scent, this is inspired by the ideal of lasting love and intimacy and is a romantic floral fragrance. The harmonious blend of classic and contemporary is truly the perfect combination of timeless quality and modern style. It has top notes of freesia, mandarin and sage, a middle blend of muguet, white lily, marigold and narcissus, and a bottom later combinging patchouli, sandalwood and amber.

You look flax-tastic

For hair care that’s luxe but affordable, try Klorane Conditioning Balm With Flax Fiber.

This is a transparent gel that feels like shampoo, that benefits short styles more than long; it leaves those pretty full of static.Klo_Fiber

But if you suffer from flat greasy roots, this could be a saviour.
