Cedro di Taormina–The 7th Release to the Acqua di Parma Blu Mediterraneo Range

March 2, 2016

It’s that time of year again when certain premium houses decide to tempt us willy-nilly with gorgeous zesty Mediterranean based fragrances that make Brits pine for warmer climes and have us clamouring for the nearest (sl)Easy Jet departure to the South of France or better, Italy. And then we mindfully counter-check this notion with the […]

A Very Mixed Bag at Gucci AW’16

February 24, 2016

I’m kinda’ seeing the relevance of see-it buy-it now shift to show culture when seated in a chill factor temperature and viewing the latest Gucci AW’16 collection as it livestreamed. Only Gucci and Kering’s CEO Francois-Henri Pinault is in favour of maintaining the status quo. See it, buy it in 6 months. Even if you […]

Stella McCartney’s Pre Fall ‘16 Collection Shows in L.A.

January 13, 2016

Stella continues to be a celeb magnet. To be honest, I’ve always admired her low-key approach to her own fame and she has been charming and gracious each time I’ve met and interviewed her. The collections tend to influence the high street, though never in an obvious ‘my-God-we’re-going-to-see-that-everywhere’ way while they tend to divide opinion […]

Disco–Where the Happy People Go

December 1, 2015

As a bona fide clubber throughout the ‘80s and ‘90s who frequented every cool club in Glasgow and London with the hipper-than-hip kids and who can actually call herself a Blitz kid, disco, though the enemy of New Wave & New Romantics at the time, was always deep down in my soul. And really good […]

The Name’s Ford…Tom Ford

October 28, 2015

It’s time to talk about Tom Ford again. We seem to spend a lot of time discussing Tom Ford over at Chutzpah Mansions but, let’s face it, it’s his world now and we’re just living in it. Not content with completely owning London Fashion Week last February by showing in Los Angeles the very same […]

Be prepared. #HMBalmaination is almost here.

October 19, 2015

Be very prepared, Balmania is about to hit down courtesy of H&M. Not that the clothes will be instantly available to the minions…oh no. The masses get our chances to sweat and queue and purchase (or get frustrated and crash the H&M global website) come 5th November. Guy Fawkes and fireworks en masse. H&M and […]

Tom Ford’s Venetian Bergamot

October 13, 2015

An interesting addition to the Private Blend stable at Tom Ford, where other fresh fragrances  lie (such as the great Neroli Portofino and Costa Azzura) that cross the divide and are worn equally well by men and women. It’s obviously a winning formula, for Venetian Bergamot smacks of success with its spiced back notes to […]

Tom Ford Noir Pour Femme–The ‘It’ Perfume of 2015

July 1, 2015

There are some fragrances that have the ‘it’ factor. They breathe self assurance and bestow confidence and allure as soon as they’re worn. Some also have the ability to entrance the wearer almost as much as their intended prey (singular or plural). Step forward the big new launch of 2015 that’s sure to win bountiful […]

Givenchy’s Cuir Blanc

March 29, 2015

Boom! I knew it had arrived with its sweet bowl-you-over waft of loveliness seeping through the packaging.  Cuir Blanc is a sparkling, addictive line of white narcotic joy wrapped in expensive new handbag leather. It’s white pepper on white musk on white leather layers all add a little bit of difference. Pristine and elegance personified. […]
