OVER THE RAIN­BOW

Ev­ery­one loves di­a­monds. Well, at least I know I do, even though I can’t ex­actly af­ford them at the mo­ment. But what I can get, at a frac­tion of the price, is this gor­geous new scent from Cartier, in­spired by the sparkle of a per­fectly cut di­a­mond. Cartier’s in-house per­fumer Matilda Lau­rent wanted to bring to life the live­li­ness and in­ten­sity of a di­a­mond, so she mim­icked the seven colours of the rain­bow (red, or­ange, yel­low, green, blue, in­digo and vi­o­let) in her choice of seven flo­rals: tulip, hon­ey­suckle, nar­cis­sus, ylang ylang, hy­acinth, lily and vi­o­let. The re­sult is el­e­gantly se­duc­tive. The pack­ag­ing is true to the brand: noth­ing dra­matic but enough to make the in­tended state­ment – it’s about di­a­monds, and di­a­monds are ex­clu­sive! You’ll def­i­nitely need to of­fer free hugs, just to share the plea­sure of this scent. Andile

Sim­ple style

I don’t re­ally keep up with the trends; gen­er­ally I have my own pref­er­ences, and these days I have an ob­ses­sion with bright colours and prints. The Pep­pertree bags caught my eye this month – they’re qual­ity, neatly de­signed and very strik­ing. Sum­mer hol­i­days are around the cor­ner, so it’s a good time to start look­ing for those travel bags and back­packs. I’ve got my beady eye on the Au­tumn travel bag and the City Slicker leather back­pack – they re­tail at R1650 each. Visit: sales@pep­pertree­bags.co.za. Tas­neem
