Guerlain’s L’Homme Ideal Cologne

June 24, 2015

One of Guerlain’s best releases of late has been its gentleman’s L’Homme Ideal. A woody aromatic that’s so charming and pleasant to be around, with it’s balanced approach and suave sexiness it’s the epitome of a male escort in fragrance format.

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.

April 19, 2014

I’m rather addicted to trying out face powders both pressed and loose. I can wax lyrical about which ones are chalky, which ones are fine, the different colours and textures and smells.

October 11, 2013

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.

Guerlain’s Nuit d’Amour

July 20, 2013

It’s a rush of powdery florals with a wet bite of crisp pink pepper and soft fruity lychee. Combining classic facets of Guerlain’s haute parfumerie with modernist glints, Nuit d’Amour has all the shimmering elegance and appeal of Klimt’s ‘Lady with Hat and Feather Boa.’ It’s charming and indelibly feminine with a faint air of […]
