MOLTON BROWN BLOSSOMING HONEYSUCKLE & WHITE TEA EAU DE TOILETTE

MOLTON BROWN BLOSSOMING HONEYSUCKLE & WHITE TEA EAU DE TOILETTE

Molton Brown (since 1973) just launched a new eau de toilette collection with eight fragrances. The eau de toilettes are presented in a beautiful and chic new signature print box which makes them the perfect gift. I know that september is not exactly the right month to think about Christmas and those colder days but atleast you know where to look if you want to give your beloved ones a nice present. There was one fragrance that really caught my attention, it is called ‘Honeysuckle & White Tea’. This fragrance is inspired by the beauty of Sichuan, a province in China. Have you seen the new designed elegant bottles?  They are redesigned to highlight the main shade of the main note from the eau de toilette. The fragrance is quite floral and sweet but in a elegant and good way if I need to discribe it in one word I would call it feminine and just perfect for warmer and colder days. I might be very sensitive to headaches but this fragrance haven’t triggered it at all. Top notes Bergamot and mandarin Heart notes Honeysuckle, white tea leaf and jasmine flower Base notes Heliotrope and sandalwood If you like the fragrance as much as I do and you want it to last as long as possible I would recommend you to take a good look at the bath & shower gel and the body lotion, these body products are great for layering. They will help to keep your body hydrated and to keep the fragrance alive as long as possible. You can find Molton Brown at Babassu and The Bijenkorf. The Eau de Toilette retails for € 49,00/50ml....
STOCKHOLM BEAUTY SHOPPING

STOCKHOLM BEAUTY SHOPPING

I would like to share some of my Stockholm favourites with you. I travelled to Stockholm (the home of & Other Stories, Byredo and Verso Skincare) for five days and I made it a mission to see and find the most possible. It is not the biggest (beauty)shopping walhalla around for me! but it is great. It is a must see city and perfect for a citytrip. I recommend four days because the city is not that big. The weather was amazing (26 degrees) and the city is beautiful during the summer months. I could not get enough of the Östermalm area and the luxurious Strandvägen Boulevard. Here are my (green beauty) Stockholm discoveries: Mrs H Where Balmain meets Eve Lom Alice & White Check their online boutique Day Spa  Woody interior with a nice collection of green/natural  products Cow Parfymeri Here I met with the founder of Verso Skincare, review & my chat with Lars Frederiksson will folow soon on the blog NK Stockholm They also sell brands like Omorovicza, Ren, Oribe, Glam Glow etc Grand Hotel Stockholm Spa One of the best hotels in Stockholm & Other Stories Love the beauty products Byredo The one and only flagship store in Stockholm Restaurant Riche One of the hotspots in the city!

CIRE TRUDON DADA

CIRE TRUDON DADA

Cire Trudon has been on my wishlist for a very long time. Cire Trudon was founded in 1643. Maison de Cire Trudon is the oldest wax-producing factory and  was also the provider of the royal court of Louis XIV, the great churches of France and they were also the Royal wax manufacturer serving the Queen. The candles are hand made with a lot of effort and presented in a brown glass container with a gold leaf vessel. I am a sucker for rich scented candles in beautiful jars because I love to decorate my home with candles. I purchased my first Cire Trudon candle at s’ Zomers Rotterdam. The candles are displayed on a big table and covered with a glass dome to retain the fragrance. This candle has been on my wishlist for quite some time. I am used to the Diptique candles but the Cire Trudon is top of the range. Compared to the Diptyque candles Cire trudon is slightly bigger and around €20 more expensive but you  really get what you pay for. The candle is made of a vegetal wax blend with soy and the dried kernel of coconut. They burn clean without producing smoke. I avoid super cheap candles and candles made in China because I consider it as toxic. Cheap candles not only smell cheap but they also give me a headache. (Breeze I am looking at you!!) I bought  the ‘Dada’ but I was convinced for a very long time that my first Cire Trudon candle would be the ‘Odalisque’. I chose the Dada because of the fresh scent, it makes me remind...
