Guerlain French Kiss – Les Elixirs Charnel

Guerlain-French-Kiss

The name of Guerlain’s newest fragrance launch alone had me intrigued: FRENCH KISS. Belonging to the Exclusive Collections LES ELIXIRS CHARNEL that previously included Chypre Fatal, Oriental Brûlant, Gourmand Coquin, and Floral Romantique, and which is designed for perfume-lovers who enjoy rare scents, exquisite ingredients and absolute refinement, the floral fruity scent is as spellbinding as a sensuous kiss.

Top notesLitchi and Raspberry
Middle notesRose and Violet
Base notes: White Musk, Vanilla, Orris Root and Heliotrope.

FRENCH KISS is such an addictive scent that made its way extremely fast into my boudoir. It is available now at Guerlain counters for CHF 260.00. In Switzerland at Manor Geneva, Bon Génie Geneva and Jelmoli Zurich.

My Look: New Year, New You

One of my new year’s resolutions is to stay fit and healthy. So better start today rather than shape up tomorrow. Here you see me this afternoon during a winter hike in the area of Gstaad.

The Last Day of the Year

Sandra Bauknecht- Gstaad - Last Day of the Year

A Happy 2015 to everyone! I hope that you started the New Year as wonderful as I did. The last day of the year was just perfect. The sky was crisp blue, the sun was shining and I had a lovely fondue lunch at Wassergrat on top of the mountain where I enjoyed the most stunning views over the Alps. If you are there, you have to try their meringue dessert. It is to die for.

Meringue Wasserngrat

New Year’s Eve itself, I spent at the Gstaad Palace Hotel, a night among friends that was truly perfect. To a prosperous 2015 that hopefully will be as fantastic as it started.

Happy New Year from Gstaad

Happy New Year from Gstaad-Sandra Bauknecht

Dear readers, I am wishing you a Happy New Year from Gstaad! Again, we are gifted with 365 days to play with, to fill them up with whatever our hearts desire. A new year is the best time to make fresh new beginnings. May the year 2015 be like a blank book that is waiting for our imagination to fill up its 365 pages with love, emotions, unexpected incidents, adventures and magic moments so that we will have no regrets at the end of the annual cycle.

Sandra Bauknecht Bellevue Gstaad

The beauty of life is that it is full of surprises. Who would have thought that I could ride a camel in Gstaad?! When you get a chance, visit Leonard at the Bellevue Gstaad, he is an institution.

To an amazing New Year’s Eve!

LoL, Sandra

Before Christmas I flew to Mauritius and stayed at the new beautiful LUX* Belle Mare resort. The only negative connotation was that it rained a lot. But this could not dampen my mood.

The Spanish Influence in Sicily

The Spanish Influence in Sicily SS15ADV SS 2015 DONNA NO LOGO (2)

The Spanish influence on the Sicilian traditions and colors is the inspiration for the images of DOLCE & GABBANA’s beautiful S/S 2015 advertising campaign. Traditional elements deriving from both countries combine together to give the pictures a touch of Mediterranean sensuality. Domenico Dolce photographed the campaign under the artistic direction of Stefano Gabbana.

Both, the women and the men campaign, feature José Maria Manzanares, a 28 years old Spanish bullfighter. At the age of 12 he faced his first bull. He inherited his skills from his father and grandfather and made his debut on the arena before the age 20. Today he’s one of the most talented bullfighters in the world. I have to admit that I am totally against bullfighting but the costumes look amazing.

Female models: Bianca Balti, Vittoria Ceretti, Irina Sharipova and Blanca Padilla
Male models: Travis Cannata, Xavier Serrano and Misa Patinsky
Hair: Oribe Canales
Makeup: Pat McGrath

My Look: Clash of the Tartans

Tartans are everywhere this winter, and this Christmas I had fun playing around with the traditional pattern. The classic skirt got a style makeover with sparkling sequins and in combination with this tartan sweater, it feels fresh and fun.
