Eternally Stylish: Guerlain’s Starlet Red

Guerlain Rouge G l'Extrait

Something insanely lush for you to covet – you may thank me later. This is the Rouge G l’Extrait from Guerlain, an entirely faultless lipstick encased in something that can only be described as a work of art. Now I know that Guerlain are known for their fine packaging, but I can’t adequately describe to you the joy that I felt when … Read More

The Queen’s Perfume

Floris Royal Arms Diamond Edition

Who better to create a special Royal Jubilee fragrance than Floris? Did you know that Floris are Her Majesty the Queen’s own appointed perfumers? I’m sure that I’ve mentioned this before – perhaps in my bespoke perfumery post – but Floris really are a brand with an amazing heritage, and a trip to their magical shop on Jermyn Street is … Read More

ila-Spa Bath Oil for Glowing Radiance

A while back I was asked by a reader (the lovely Sue!) whether I could recommend a rose-scented bath milk.

Little Pots of Luxury

sisley confort extreme

Are expensive lip balms worth the dough? The sensible half of my brain says ‘no’, but the half that was paying attention when I tested the examples below is screaming YES!

Moneybags Monday: Guerlain Ecrin 6 Couleurs

makeup eye review

Ah yes, Moneybags Monday. The time of either great sorrow or extreme danger depending on whether or not you decide to save your pennies or splurge your cash. Today’s lust-worthy item is Guerlain’s Ecrin 6 Couleurs palette and the shade combination is ‘Place Vendome’. Strictly speaking, this compact shouldn’t be a Moneybags Monday item; yes, it’s quite dear at £52.50, … Read More
