Roger & Gallet

Roger & Gallet in Ireland is not as well known as it is everywhere else in the world. In fact on a recent trip on a super yacht, eh hem, in Cannes these were the toiletries that were in the bathrooms. So if Roger & Gallet is good enough for a super yacht they are…

Coco Mademoiselle

I adore most things Chanel, but mostly I adore Coco Chanel the perfume, my friend Hazel has been wearing it forever and whenever someone has it on it reminds me of her. She has been know to give a spray to taxi men and anyone who she feels may need a bit of Chanel in…

Neom’s first fragrance

Tom Ford Soleil Blanc

I was lucky enough to get a sample of this brand new fragrance from Tom Ford last week, and I literally have finished the sample already, in a week. It’s amazing! I think the reason that I love it so much is that the opening note is jasmine, and y’all know I love my jasmine…

Neom Organics Tranquility 

Who doesn’t love the smell of a fab candle in the sitting room?? I always have one on the go, generally a flowery scent or something really sweet. I recently got my hands on Neom’s Tranquility candle, which is designed to calm and relax you. And can I tell you not only is the candle…

Venetian Bergamot from Tom Ford

My love of all things Tom Ford runs deep, I may have far too many pairs of his sunglasses. This brand new fragrance from the Private Blend collection is beautiful. Bergamot is normally a note in super fresh citrus scents but Mr. Ford being Tom Ford he has turned it upside down and inside out….

YSL Black Opium

Opium is a scent that instantly brings me back to the 80’s and my sister Gemma getting ready for a night out in her white stilettos, it’s amazing how smells transport you to another time and place in an instant. The original fragrance to heavy and warm and in my humble opinion still beautiful albeit…

Kendall Jenner’s first fragrance campaign. 

   Check out Kendall Jenner on set of Estée Lauder’s brand spanning new fragrance Modern Muse Rouge, which I haven’t smelt yet but I’m guessing it’s fab as the other two Modern Muse fragrance are beautiful. They both have Jasmin as one of the main notes, and Jasmin is one of my favourite scents. Modern…
