I cannot believe that it is already October. Time just flies… we were so blessed this year with beautiful weather that I can hardly imagine that we will soon be freezing.
What I love about fall the most is that I enjoy being at home and making myself cozy. I love to spray my house with a yummy room scent that welcomes me every day with summer memories.
LALIQUE Voyage de Parfumeur
Vanille Room Spray
A delicate, delicious aroma of the sweetest of orchids: vanilla – pairing it with a sandalwood heart and a musky amber base for a delectable, enveloping and mouth-watering effect.
CHF 65.00 (100ml)
There are also three new scents on the market that you shouldn’t miss: Yuzu, Figuier and Santal.
In my beauty closet, fall starts when I exchange my fragrances for more opulent ones. One scent I have been loving since many years is:
MUSK RAVAGEUR by Maurice Roucel
Editions de Parfums Frédéric Malle
This beautiful oriental rich scent has a intense, warm base of vanilla, amber and musk with top notes of bergamot, tangerine and cinnamon. Complex and lasting, it’s perfect for anyone who loves sensual and powerful fragrances.
Moreover, there are two new fragrances on the market that caught my attention. If you get a chance, I recommend trying them – they are both really beautiful. There’s no reason buying a gift shouldn’t be a treat for you, too:-)!
The Roman Night Absolute
Created by Alberto Morillas, this scent is a hypnotic modern elixir, a chypre musk with exhilarating power. Orange blossom and black plum provide a stunningly unexpected opening. The majestic floral heart electrifies you with an addictive absolute encapsulation of sensuality. Mysterious and magnetic, blended with black musk, the chypre accord stirs under bewitching patchouli and crystal moss while exuding the scent of infinity.
Eau de Parfum Sensuelle
CHF 78.00 (30ml), CHF 117.00 (50ml) and CHF 140.00 (75ml)
DOLCE & GABBANA
The Only One
A new fragrance that captures the essence of sophisticated and hypnotizing femininity. The Only One’s signature lies in the surprising combination of violet and coffee giving life to an enchanting floral scent. The fragrance is an interesting play of opposites; it is from this fusion of the unexpected that it draws its appeal. The violet opens the fragrance, combining with subtle touches of bergamot to create a lively, surprizing and juicy bouquet. At the heart, seductive notes of rich coffee are blended with charming iris. Finally, the warm base of vanilla and patchouli lends a tactile, comforting quality, enveloping the senses in an opulent embrace.
Eau de Parfum
CHF 86.00 (30ml), CHF 114.00 (50ml) and CHF 159.00 (100ml)
When the fall season starts, I tend to wear darker lip colors – preferably in red. A new generation of care lipsticks with an ultra-silky texture that envelop the lips with a fine, smoothing, contouring and hydrating film. Perfect for the cold season.
Le Photo Rouge
The intensity of a lipstick combined with a balm-like sensation in an exceptional skin care formula and a stunning packaging that makes it a real beauty accessory. Thanks to the «Hydrobooster Complex» composed of microspheres of hyaluronic acid and konjac glucomannans, lips are immediately plumped up, voluptuous and smoothed.
CHF 53.00 each
