Spring always conjures up images of soft blossom beginning to bloom on trees and signals the start of the warmer weather. Feminine pink tones are always on trend during this season and if you are looking for some stylish ‘pretty in pink’ picks then we have some fab ideas to inspire you.
NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée
The NARCISO fragrance line continues to embody the extremes of seduction and the art of attraction with a third chapter of the story. NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée transcends time as it stops time. A voluptuous sensuality. The new fragrance envelops the body with a weightless intensity that’s both fragile and distinctive. Available in 30, 50 and 90 ml, NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée is intoxicating as a soft powdery musc reveals the heart of the fragrance.
“The color of the bottle is a unique shade of blush,” says the designer, “a blush that captures femininity and beauty. The color alludes to the sensuality of skin and the body.”
Enhanced by a velvety smooth floral blend of white jasmine petals and Bulgarian rose with signature woody notes of vetiver and black and white cedars, the scent lends warmth and potency. Evocative yet explicit, the fragrance seduces magically and mysteriously with a powerful magnetism. NARCISO eau de parfum Poudrée embodies a discreet luxury with an intimacy that lingers on a woman’s skin leaving a silken trail. Skin and scent become one and the same, radiating beauty and grace. The fragrance leaves a deep impression as the fragrance dissolves into a woman’s skin and as a memory that lingers, making it the perfect spring scent!
Chantecaille Le Magnolia Eye and Cheek Palette
Chantecaille use botanicals sourced from around the world. It’s important that the natural ingredients they use are harvested in socially and ecologically responsible ways. The beauty and healthcare industries’ demand for wild plant ingredients is increasing. Unfortunately, these plants are being harvested in a non-sustainable manner. Houpu Magnolia is the perfect example of this situation. Once, thousands of magnolia trees grew wild all over China.
Its bark prized for its anti-inflmmatory properties used abundantly in Chinese medicine as well as the cosmetic industry has contributed to the extinction of the tree in the wild. Chantecaille have created Le Magnolia Eye and Cheek Palette in an effort to bring awareness to TRAFFIC International’s FairWild Standard. Use of the FairWild Standard helps to ensure plants are collected sustainably and that the rural harvesters are compensated in a fair and ethical manner. Embossed with a Magnolia, the limited edition shades complement the delicate watercolour hues seen on the Spring 2016 runways. 5% of proceeds from each palette sold will be donated to TRAFFIC to support their FairWild Standard.
Leaf – A unique, pale, pearly sage green that instantly brightens the eye area when worn on the lid or along the lash line
Wild – A fun, playful coral that adds a natural flush to the cheeks
Magnolia – A delicate and slightly iridescent petal white
Bark – A semi-matte, rich gentle brown to define and contour
Available at Harrods, Urban Retreat at Harrods, Liberty, Fenwick Bond Street & Brent Cross, Fortnum & Mason, Hoopers Tunbridge Wells and SpaceNK. Price: £74 – Refilable.
