With all the Royal buzz going on at the moment with the lead up to the wedding of Prince William and Catherine, there is definately one way we can all bring a little bit of Royal luxe into our homes.

By bringing home the new Limited Edition GLASSHOUSE Versailles triple scented candle, you can create French glamour quite simply by lighting it.

Fit for a Queen (or King), Versailles fills the room with delicate perfumes of Gardenia, Musk, Freesia and Amber. An exquisite scent, it adds a warm and luxurious feeling to your home – perfect for Autumn, leading into Winter.

Presented in the signature GLASSHOUSE glass jar, the Limited Edition Versailles is luxuriously decorated with ornate silver marble effect. In a graceful gold embellished box with Versailles artwork, there is no reason for you not to take it home.

A Beautiful New Scent By Byredo – M/Mink Eau de Parfum

Wednesday, December 15th, 2010

Something I don’t often write about, but am so passionate about is scent.

How you smell is so important, and finding your signature scent can take years and years. Scents trigger memories, triggers the memories of others, and sets a mood and presence where ever you go. Both men and women.

Now this isn’t my signature scent, but most certainly one I absolutely love. Soon to hit Australian shores at Mecca Cosmetica, Byredo M/Mink Eau de Parfum is truly something special. (I was lucky enough to get a bottle from overseas!)

The scent was inspired by “Asian ink, a photo of a Japanese calligrapher and a utopian concept drawn on traditional Korean paper, by Mathias Augustyniak”.

Developed by perfumer Jerome Epinette; M/Mink’s notes include adoxal, incense, patchouli, honey and amber.
