Carven’s L’Absolu and L’Eau Intense

January 9, 2017

One of the rubbish things about no longer being in the epicentre of the world (ie London) and moving to the cold hard North is that one tends to drop from press lists like an X Factor contestant dropping their inhibitions and their conscience. Throw in the constant turnaround in agency PR staff and your […]

So Fresh, So Clean – ARAMIS DEVIN

June 22, 2015

After a couple of months of disappointing summer releases (and I’m looking at you, that less Extreme Spicebomb, and the not-so-intense Intenso) I’ve decided to go back and review a fragrance that, whilst not new, is going to be a revelation to some. I can’t recall when I first discovered Devin by Aramis, but I […]

Guerlain’s Ltd Edition Terracotta Le Parfum

May 24, 2015

I stumbled upon Guerlain’s Terracotta Le Parfum while cutting through Debenhams beauty hall as a means to get somewhere else faster. (Sorry, Debs). There’s a lesson here. Sometimes you hit upon a great product or fragrance completely by chance and not as some PR person is slavishly selling in new releases. In this case, it’s […]

Dolce & Gabbana’s Intenso. More than a little surprising.

May 3, 2015

During the EltonGate brouhaha, I felt for those Dolce & Gabbana PRs, I really did. An awesome brand of fashion, fragrance and beauty, as a PR,  I, too, would have felt like getting on the first flight to Milan and confiscating Stefano Gabbana’s phone, PC and tablet while destroying his login details to all social […]

Todd Lynn–The Latest Designer at Debenhams

October 16, 2013

Debenhams. One of the trustworthy, go-to dept stores on the high street has (along with Topshop) been the source of affordable designer name clothing for the great British public. The flipside bonus to this is that funding designers’ secondary high-street ranges means an injection of cash to the designers as well as widening the appeal […]

Guerlain’s ‘La Petite Robe Noir’ Mon Eau de Lingerie

September 10, 2013

Now, if this isn’t indulgent and whimsical but utterly desirable then I don’t know what is?  It’s one of those, I-didn’t-know-I-needed-it-till-I-knew-it-existed products that makes a perfect girlie gift for someone. I have my quibbles about Guerlain’s latest hit perfume ‘La Petite Robe Noir’ simply because it has a strong Gourmand black cherries and vanilla scent, […]

Dita Von Teese Von Follies Collection for Summer’13

July 1, 2013

I must have been sleeping or distracted or in the midst of something else as I missed this one when it launched at the end of last year when really, who can miss Dita Von Teese and the launch of her lingerie line? Exactly. But anyway… Fast forward to Summer ’13 and Dita’s love of […]

Go Orange. Three of the best Intense Colour Lipsticks.

May 17, 2013

Yes it is May. Yes the weather is still horrendous and yes, we are well and truly bored, depressed and thoroughly hacked off with this state of affairs. Welcome to living in the UK, peeps. Just as we should be grabbing our flip-flops and stressing about pedicures and leg waxes, we’re still trying to shoehorn […]

Debenhams signs E Tautz’s Patrick Grant

April 6, 2013

BBC2’s The Great British Sewing Bee will no doubt make a star of him. One only hopes that it’s not in the Jeff Banks, Wayne Hemmingway or Gok Wan mould as Mr Grant’s a heavyweight with enough natural style, suss and charisma to be a real voice of fashion and not just a wheeled-in talking […]
