Don’t Need a Prince to Be a Princess

Yesterday morning, I received a package with a new scent by Kilian that made me very excited as it is so extremely yummy. To attract a more youthful audience, the handsome perfumer (for his travel tips for Paris, click here please) created MY KIND OF LOVE, an entire new fragrance collection for young lovers: four scents—Princess, Kissing, Adults, and Boys—for flirty fun and free play, each is an audacious statement, a truth or dare to love in your very own way, conveying each its own message.

I wanted this collection to have the multi-layered notes and accords that I’m known for, but built around a key ingredient that’s unusual, surprising, and instantly recognizable.”—Kilian Hennessy

Expect the unexpected at all points of the game, as even the bottle is more than meets the eye. A little bomb of seduction inspired by contemporary art, it is both a mini sculpture and a bold declaration. Grab its weighted sphere on top, turn tradition upside down, and remove the bottom square pedestal for spritzing instant sex appeal. On the black bottle’s pedestal, each playful phrase is put on graphic exhibition in glossy lipstick red and gold.

Princess is a divine scent, you just want to eat it up with its warm and sweet gourmand ingredients of Ginger, Green Tea, and Marshmallow!

I wanted to amp up the girl power with a unique scent calling out all fierce females. Gourmand with a kick, Princess is like sipping on a green tea matcha with a tip of ginger on the nose for sassy spice.”—Kilian Hennessy

In Switzerland available at Manor for CHF 90.00 (30ml), CHF 125.00 (50ml) and CHF 190.00 (100ml). TO SHOP BY KILIAN ONLINE, CLICK HERE PLEASE.

My Photo Shoot for Dior Addict Gloss in Paris


When I presented you the first photos of the Dior Iconic event in February, I wasn’t allowed to show you all. But it is time to reveal the missing pictures. The new DIORSHOW ICONIC OVERCURL mascara is gorgeous and this month, DIOR is adding some fabulous lip glosses and nail polishes to their line. I felt so honoured to be photographed for this new launch as well.

The official photos by Dior are in the collage above. Moreover, you can enjoy some behind the scenes photos below.


As Christian Dior said: “Colour is indispensable for beauty. Lipstick is a fashion accessory”.

Let me introduce you to the indispensable beauty manifesto. DIOR ADDICT GLOSS is the new magic touch for shine and fashion. A creative, addictive accessory for experimenting with this season’s trends.



Ultimate shine, playing with effects, turning heads: all eyes are on DIOR ADDICT GLOSS. And needless to say, the spot is on nails as well with the matching DIOR VERNIS. Have fun experimenting and mix and match your new sparkling must-haves!
Here are all the details:


With the help of its magic formula, it provides lips with incredible shine and complete comfort. Its secret: the Mirror Shine Complex, an unrivalled procedure perfected by the Dior Research team. Each color has its own fashion effect, making it beautiful and unique, addictive, and as sexy as a pair of stilettos. Available in 24 different shades for CHF 45.00 each.



The stars of the shoot: “SHIMMER” SHADES
A fun, sensual collection for lips that do as they please, both night and day. Meticulously dosed glitter is carefully chosen to match the gloss, for a spectacular shimmering effect. Stylish, tailored shine for your lips and inspired by that, the magic goes right down to your fingertips.
DIOR VERNIS gets also some “shimmer” with 4, new, star shades:


Diablotine, Spring Ball, Princess and Délice.
DIOR VERNIS – CHF 37.00 each


To finish off your manicure, try the new DIOR GEL COAT.
This visionary topcoat produces the perfect, ultra-shine finish of a professional style, gel-effect manicure. Smooth and elegantly curved, nails are lacquered with exceptional, long wear shine that dramatizes their glittering sparkle.
DIOR GEL COATOne Shot – CHF 37.00


What a gorgeous idea, for the shoot, I got a special Dior Cannage manicure.
