Hi Guys!

It’s almost Mother’s Day! And if you’re anything like me you might have a nice day of relaxation planned – I’m hoping this year’s ‘breakfast in bed’ might be a slight improvement on last year but we’ll see! 😀

Mother’s day is a day to think of your mum for everything she does for you – all those little things that you take for granted. As I’m a mum myself now, I really have a whole new perspective on everything my mum did for me (and what a complete nightmare I could be) when I was growing up!

If you’re in need of picking up a gift or two this week, Debenhams definitely have you covered. They have the most fantastic selection of gifts available for all budgets, to suit all mums whatever their tastes. From fragrance, to beauty, and home gifts to experience days, there’s bound to be something perfect at Debenhams to suit your mum! I have a few gorgeous gift ideas to share with you today –

If Mum’s a bit of a skincare fanatic, this super luxury ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Day Cream could make the perfect gift. Luxury skincare brand Elemis’ brand new Collagen Marine Day Cream is specifically formulated to target fine lines and wrinkles. This day cream blends a powerful combination of ingredients, including padina pavonica and ginkgo biloba, to improve the skin’s appearance, increase hydration, and improve elasticity and suppleness. It also contains a micronised sunscreen that leaves no white streaks on the face, which offers broad spectrum UVA and UVB protection.  

Or for something more affordable, how about the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel? Perfect for those with combination or oily skin, the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel is dermalogically tested and fragrance free, so it’s perfect for those with a more sensitive complexion. This oil free gel hydrates the skin leaving it feeling softer, smoother and younger.

I also have the stunning new Viktor & Rolf Flowerbomb Nectar EDP – this fragrance is honestly so beautiful, and it’s easily one of my new favourites! Flowerbomb Nectar is the newest addition to the Flowerbomb collection. Described as a sensual flower liqueur, with an explosion of floral notes and a surprising twist, this scent opens with notes of fresh bergamot oil and rich sweet blackcurrant syrup. The heart unveils a feminine and enveloping white floral nectar of Sambac Jasmin and Orange flower combined with sweet notes of Osmanthus, leading to a beautifully addictive gourmand blend of warm spicy hues of tonka bean and creamy soft vanilla at the base.

And what would a luxury gift guide be without a bit of Tom Ford? The Tom Ford The Ultimate Bronzer (£75.00) really is the height of luxury, and for the price, you’d expect nothing less than the very best. The packaging is of course beautiful, and this bronzer is also super sized, so you know it’s going to last. The Tom Ford Ultimate Bronzer features a silky, lightweight texture with an exclusively formulated mineral blend of Sunstone, Amber and Black Tourmaline Crystals, combined with unique pigments to flawlessly highlight your skin’s natural radiance.

Fragrance: Penhaligon’s The Ruthless Countess Dorothea EDP

Posted on January 18, 2018

Hi Guys!

The latest addition to Penhaligon’s wonderful Portrait Collection has been sitting in my ‘to try’ box at TSNC HQ for a good few weeks now, and I thought it was about time I gave it a go – Penhaligon’s is one of my favourite niche fragrance brands, and I know if this is anything like the rest of the Portraits collection, I’ll absolutely love it! Let’s take a look at the fragrance…

So to start with, if you’re not familiar with the Portraits Collection, it’s a range of fragrances based on characters from the British aristocracy. Each fragrance represents and character, and each character comes with a whole backstory to their personality and life. (You can see my write up for the last Portraits launch, Clandestine Clara here)

Penhaligon’s have recently added four new fragrances to the range, (two male and two female) of which I have The Ruthless Countess Dorothea – I love how dramatic this sounds! Dorothea is described as a most ferocious matriarch, known for her sharp mind, even sharper wit and a secret fondness for the company of younger men – Dorothea also has an illegitimate son, she’s a scandalous character fond of alcohol, love affairs and ambiguous behaviour – and I think I’d really like to be friends with her!! I predict this scent is going to be a bit racy!

Well, the fragrance is just stunning, as expected – it’s incredibly warm and comforting, and it lingers all day after only one spray in the morning. I guess I expected something quite strong, overpowering even, but it’s actually very wearable, yet still noticeable – my husband said ‘ooh what’s that perfume you’re wearing, I like it!’ – it’s also subtly intoxicating and alluring. This is easily now my new favourite scent from Penhaligon’s and if you’re fans of the Portraits range, this really is a must try. This is fragrance definitely not to be missed!

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Ginger and Chinese Cinnamon Wood.
  • Heart Notes: Red Ginger Oil, Beeswax, Clary Sage and Mate.
  • Base Notes: Sherry-Cashmeran, Vanilla and White Wine.

The Ruthless Countess Dorothea EDP is available at Penhaligon”s and Jarrold now.

The beautiful Diptyque Feu d’agrumes Scented Candle would also make fantastic Christmas treat – Diptyque always bring out the most gorgeous candle collections at Christmas time, and for 2017 they have been inspired by the universe, constellations and stars, to bring us a trio of candles with the theme of mythological cosmic animals. I have the Fiery Orange candle, with a silver dragon motif.  It features notes of Blood Orange, Smokey Wood and Cloves, evoking feelings of a hot, crackling fire.

I also have this lovely little Perricone MD Pre:Empt Series Travel Set – perfect for someone interested in trying the brand, the Pre:Empt Travel Set contains everything you need to hydrate, exfoliate and keep oily complexions in check.

The Prada La Femme Eau De Parfum 50ml Gift Set is another fabulous fragrance set. Described as the most intimate of fragrances, La Femme is both instinctive and sophisticated, weaving a mesmerising trail around its wearer. The scent opens with notes of sultry Frangipani and Honey, leading to a heart of Ylang Ylang, Tuberose and, creamy Vanilla, with a seductive note of Vetiver in the base.

  • Top Notes: Frangipani and Honey
  • Heart notes: Tuberose and Ylang Ylang
  • Base notes: Vetiver and Vanilla

Continuing with fragrance, niche scents really have stolen my heart this year, and Olfactive Studio Close Up is definitely a fragrance that should be on your radar. Close Up is in fact a collaboration between Olfactive Studio and established photographer Suren Manvelyan. It’s an intense dark woody gourmand fragrance, with notes of boozy and bitter sweet Cherry Liqueur, cool Star Anise and Green Coffee, which then gradually descends into a dark heart of Rose, Atlas Cedar, Patchouli and Amber, with a base of Ambergris, Musk and Tonka Beans.

And lastly for fragrance, Jovoy Rose Millésimée is another niche scent that is definitely worth trying. Rose Millésimée is an ode to Centifolia Rose, described as an olfactory metaphor for a moment frozen in time, the reflection of a story, a region and a tradition of craftsmanship. This is easily the most beautiful rose fragrance I’ve ever had the pleasure of smelling – it’s a must try for fans of rose scents.

  • Top Notes: Spices
  • Heart Notes: Rose
  • Base Notes: Musk

Back to makeup now, this Givenchy Icon Box Palette is just perfect for somebody that loves their makeup conveniently packaged. This super chic glossy black box contains a selection of Givenchy makeup essentials, including eyeshadows, blush and highlighters on one side, and lip gloss, eyeliner and mascara on the other, with a handy mirror in the centre.

And last but not least, the SUQQU Designing Colour Eyeshadow Palette is a fantastic alternative to more ‘mainstream’ branded palettes. It includes four shades that can be used induvidually or layered effortlessly with perfection, to give natural definition to the eyes. I have the palette in 113 Hikarisango, which features a shimmering champagne highlight and vibrant coral hue, contrasted with a deep burgundy and brick brown. This is definitely one for fans of luxury makeup.

I’d love to hear if you’re picking up and luxury or high end beauty treats this Christmas? I hope you enjoyed my post xxx

Impressively, this beauty collection features a full-size 30ml Ghost Deep Night EDT fragrance as its stand out gift.
