The Luxury Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Posted on March 7, 2018

Hi Guys!

How is it nearly Mother’s Day!? Im pretty sure it was only just Christmas! I’m looking forward to a day window shopping in Norwich on Saturday, and hopefully being served breakfast in bed and generally just getting spoiled rotten on Sunday! If you’re thinking of spoiling Mum this year and fancy going a bit extra, I have a fab selection of luxury gift ideas for you today – I hope you enjoy!

Firstly, I have this beautiful  – designed to represent an eternal bond between two people, this delicate silver necklace features a dainty white zirconia heart intertwined into a ring, which is engraved with the words ‘Together Forever’. This adorable necklace would make the perfect Mother’s Day gift! The necklace box also sits here on a lovely peach . This quirky angular tray comes in a selection of shades and has a modern matte finish. It’s just the perfect size for displaying fragrances and beauty treats on your dressing table 🙂

On to fragrance now, and I have a few gorgeous niche and high end scents to share –  is a captivating woody citrus fragrance, opening with top notes of fresh and sparkling bergamot and mandarin, leading to a heart of sweet orange flower and neroli, and a sensual, warming base of musk and white wood.

I also have the beautiful  – this is a stunning contemporary chypre fragrance, taking inspiration from a young woman deciding what she will wear before her evening out in Paris. The bottle is of course gorgeous, with it’s fun and playful pompom and engraved medal, and the scent also reflects these boudoir elements – with fresh top notes, silky iris at the heart, and an addictive sweet base, Tenue de Sioree leaves a wonderfully soft gourmand kiss on the skin.

 is also one to watch our for. This is the second fragrance I’ve tried from Jeroboam, and it’s just as beautiful as the first! Ambra, meaning ‘amber’ in Esperanto, is modern, daring and sensual. The scent opens with top notes of bergamot, geranium and incense that give way to a heart of Peru balsam and patchouli, and base notes of vetiver, vanilla, tonka bean and enigmatic musks provide a sensual dry down to this luxurious fragrance.

And – this is probably my favourite scent so far. Gelsomini di Capri evokes the magical feeling of a sun-drenched island sanctuary blooming with jasmine and fragrant bouquets that softly wave in the fresh breeze. Bergamot, lemon and yellow mandarin open the fragrance, softening into a sensual floral heart of jasmine grandiflorum absolute that rests on an opulent base of Italian ginestra and orange blossom, amber, and cashmere wood.

And I also have – on initial spritz I thought this scent might be a bit too ‘grown up’ for me, but I have to say, it does have the most beautiful dry down that lasts for hours. Rose Tubereuse would be perfect for fans of intense, floral scents, with distinct notes of tuberose and sandalwood.

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Rhubarb, Mandarin, Clove and Guava.
  • Herat Notes: Bulgarian Rose, Tuberose, Geranium, Jasmine and Ylang Ylang.
  • Base Notes: Vanilla, Sandalwood, Tonka Bean, Patchouli, Musk and Benzoin.

On to skincare now – the  would make a wonderful Mother’s Day gift! The set contains three mini Premier Cru products, including The Eye Cream 15ml, which tackles signs of ageing, including dark circles and puffiness, whilst brightening and smoothing the eye area. The Precious Oil 10ml, which melts into the skin leaving it instantly smoothed, nourished and brightened. And The Cream 15ml, which hydrates the skin, whilst restoring density and smoothing wrinkles, to reveal a firmer, more radiant complexion.

Or how about the brand new ? Formulated with Caudalie’s patented Vinergy® complex, this luxurious, gel-like serum promises to intensely revitalise the skin to correct the signs of ageing. The highly concentrated formula boosts the effectiveness of your current anti-ageing cream to reveal skin that appears visibly younger, more radiant and revitalised.

Moving on to something a little different, how about this beautiful ? Lola Design offer a wide range of animal prints, and the White Tailed Stag print is from the Wildlife Botanical collection, which also includes bees, humming birds, owls, and many more fabulous creatures – all of which feature beautiful floral details, and are available as stand-alone prints or pre-mounted and framed to your specification.

I also have this striking  This design was influenced by the romantic yet heart breaking story of Dara Maar, one of the many muses and lovers of Picasso. Widely recognised as his most famous muse, Dora was the subject of many cruel jokes played on her by Picasso and they indulged in a turbulent relationship coloured by art, passion & tension.

Back to skincare now, I have the fab  which contains a selection of products from the By Terry Baume de Rose collection, all housed in a pink faux leather pouch. Included you’ll find a Face Cream 30g, Hand Cream 30g, Body Cream 50g and a Lip Care 0.2ml. I’ve displayed the products here in a beautiful  – the aluminium on the bowl has been shaped by hand to create a rustic, imperfect edge and finished with a distressed metallic sheen and marble look enamel interior. This would make a fantastic snack bowl!

If Mum is a fan of luxury body products,  could make the perfect gift. It’s enriched with the finest grade argan oil and shea butter, combining these nourishing ingredients with a luxury oud fragrance. Carved Oud is a heavenly blend of South Indian oud, with cedarwood, patchouli and Haitian vetiver, rounded off with a smooth musk at the base.

I also have a couple of brand new skincare products from Filorga. The  is an ultra-lifting cream formulated with active ingredients derived from the latest research into biotechnology, for a complete anti-ageing effect. Included in a cream for the first time, Plasmatic Lifting Factors® visibly tighten the features, plump the skin and sculpt the face. And the  is an ultra-lifting serum promising a radical anti-ageing effect. The formula includes a duo of ultra-tightening active agents, combined with a roll-on applicator to stimulate the skin tissue, to lift and smooth the complexion.

Or how about the  which includes a generous 100ml body lotion and 50ml L’Eau d’Issey fragrance. This timeless yet modern fragrance is a beautiful fresh floral, that’s noticeably aquatic and woody, with notes of lilies and soft freesia combined with sensual precious woods at the base.

And lastly, I have the stunning . L’Occitane’s latest fragrance, Terre de Lumiere L’Eau is a scent inspired by blooming flowers in the dawn light in Provence. Opening with notes of bergamot and pink pepper reminiscent of the fresh air of dawn. Then, just as the sun warms the earth, floral notes blossom revealing voluptuous accords of white musk and tonka bean. This luxury gift set includes a generously sized 90ml Eau de Toilette, Gentle Shower Gel, Beautifying Body Lotion, Radiant Balm and Perfumed Soap, all housed in a L’Occitane signature gift box.

Fragrance: Shay & Blue Black Tulip EDP

Posted on January 31, 2018

Hi Guys!

I have the latest offering from niche fragrance brand, Shay & blue to share with you today. I only had my first experience Shay & Blue fairly recently, when I visited their beautiful Mayfair Flagship Store last Autumn, and I was absolutely blown away by their fragrances! I left with my two favourites at the time, which were Salted Caramal and Blood Oranges (you can read my full write up here)

Shay & Blue have now added a brand new fragrance to their collection for 2018 – Black Tulip. I must admit I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this scent, but I was more than pleasantly surprised to find that Black Tulip is absolutely beautiful! The fragrance is described as a modern floral, but it’s really so much more than that. It has the most wonderful combination of white florals, juicy fruits, smooth woods and delicious creamy white chocolate. I honesty don’t think I’ve tried another fragrance like this before.

Black Tulip is most definitely a unique modern floral scent. It opens with notes of Snowdrops and Cyclamen offering an inviting hit of crisp floral freshness, leading to a juicy heart of Plum with intense and velvety Black Tulip. The base rounds the fragrance off beautifully with warming notes of deliciously creamy vanilla White Chocolate and Soft Woods.

To me this is very much a wintery scent, that’s both elegant and refined, yet offers a cosy warmth – it makes me think of evenings by the fire, snuggling in cosy soft blankets and long winter walks. The freshness of at the top of Black Tulip is perfectly counterpinned by the warming and indulgent base, give a fantastic new statement floral EDP. This is just a beautiful scent all round, and in my opinion a must try!

  • Top NotesSnowdrops and Cyclamen.
  • Heart Notes: Black Tulip and Plum.
  • Base Notes: White Chocolate and Soft Woods.

Black Tulip is very reasonably priced at £55.00 for 100ml and available now at .

Fragrance: Penhaligon’s The Ruthless Countess Dorothea EDP

Posted on January 18, 2018

Hi Guys!

The latest addition to Penhaligon’s wonderful Portrait Collection has been sitting in my ‘to try’ box at TSNC HQ for a good few weeks now, and I thought it was about time I gave it a go – Penhaligon’s is one of my favourite niche fragrance brands, and I know if this is anything like the rest of the Portraits collection, I’ll absolutely love it! Let’s take a look at the fragrance…

So to start with, if you’re not familiar with the Portraits Collection, it’s a range of fragrances based on characters from the British aristocracy. Each fragrance represents and character, and each character comes with a whole backstory to their personality and life. (You can see my write up for the last Portraits launch, Clandestine Clara here)

Penhaligon’s have recently added four new fragrances to the range, (two male and two female) of which I have The Ruthless Countess Dorothea – I love how dramatic this sounds! Dorothea is described as a most ferocious matriarch, known for her sharp mind, even sharper wit and a secret fondness for the company of younger men – Dorothea also has an illegitimate son, she’s a scandalous character fond of alcohol, love affairs and ambiguous behaviour – and I think I’d really like to be friends with her!! I predict this scent is going to be a bit racy!

Well, the fragrance is just stunning, as expected – it’s incredibly warm and comforting, and it lingers all day after only one spray in the morning. I guess I expected something quite strong, overpowering even, but it’s actually very wearable, yet still noticeable – my husband said ‘ooh what’s that perfume you’re wearing, I like it!’ – it’s also subtly intoxicating and alluring. This is easily now my new favourite scent from Penhaligon’s and if you’re fans of the Portraits range, this really is a must try. This is fragrance definitely not to be missed!

  • Top Notes: Bergamot, Ginger and Chinese Cinnamon Wood.
  • Heart Notes: Red Ginger Oil, Beeswax, Clary Sage and Mate.
  • Base Notes: Sherry-Cashmeran, Vanilla and White Wine.

The Ruthless Countess Dorothea EDP is available at and  now.
