my top 3
This week I’m loving…
I love Penhaligon’s perfumes and now I have a miniature collection in a gorgeous tin to treasure. There’s a tiny version of its iconic fragrances Vaara, Iris Prima, Ellenisia, Malabah and Querces so I can choose a scent to suit my (festive) mood. Dh280, Penhaligon’s London (stand alone store).
Dolce & Gabbana’s new male fragrance Intenso is a heady mix of basil, marigold and geranium, lavender, cypress, with musky sandalwood, labdanum and for the first time in perfumery – moepel from the South African Milkwood tree. Sophisticated and intense, this makes the perfect gift for under the tree. You’ll be stealing it for yourself come Boxing Day. Dh238 for 40ml.
I’ve found the perfect way to bring the smell of Christmas into my home with an Ei8ht limitededition Celebr8 candle. It not only looks gorgeous but wafts the scent of amber, burnt orange, clove and vanilla everywhere. Dh280 Bloomingdale’s Home and www.theproducthouse.biz.
