Ever wondered what Tiffany & Co. would smell like in a bottle?

The fragrance of mandarin, iris, patchouli and musk danced in the air as I entered Tiffany's fragrance launch event at The Highline Stages in New York City last night. As I admired the display, my initial thought was that there were three different Tiffany fragrances... but I later learned that these ingredients were all combined in one bottle, with the iris being the signature ingredient.

Developed by perfumer Daniela Andrier, I really think the new Tiffany & Co Eau de Parfum truly captures the essence of love and beauty of the Tiffany brand. Packaged in Tiffany's signature blue box, the glass bottle is carved in the shape of a diamond and filled with a delicate sparkling floral musk. The fragrance is centered around the scent of the iris, serving as the fragrance's signature ingredient as Tiffany's perfumer Daniela Andrier believed the iris flower has many facets, just like diamonds. How beautiful is that?

Three words to describe this fragrance? Radiant. Modern. Feminine. 

I can definitely see this becoming one of my new favorite scents.

Lumene Valo

Do you ever have those days when your skin just feels super tired? I do. I’ve been brightening and re-energizing my skincare routine with Lumene's VALO collection to fuel my tired skin. Through Nordic superfruit, arctic cloudberry, this line is packed with Vitamin-C and antioxidants.

The word "valo" means "light" in Finnish. Through this skincare collection, Valo blends the natural goodness of the rare Arctic Cloudberry, a wild super-fruit  packed with Vitamin A, C, E and Fatty Acids with an extra dose of stabilized bio-available Vitamin C to create the powerful hydrating Nordic-C Complex. It helps boost skin energy, enhance radiance and improve complexion evenness. Valo formulas also contain pH friendly Pure Arctic Spring Water, protecting and moisturizing agents to maximize skin’s natural healthy glow instantly and day after day.

The entire collection feels luxurious, and I really love the Arctic Berry Cocktail Oil in particular. Not only does the two tone look beautiful, this bottle is also packed with antioxidant-rich and carefully extracted cranberry and Arctic cloudberry seed oils. My skin tends to lean more on oily side, and the Valo skincare collection hydrates my skin beautifully without making me feel greasy at all. It's my first time using Nordic skincare and I adore the purity and potency of the naturally derived ingredients found throughout Finland and infused in all of Lumene's products.

The year was 2005 when Viktor & Rolf first launched what has now become one of the most popular fragrances of the decade. Flowerbomb has been one of my favourite perfumes for years, and I'm so thrilled to have had the opportunity to celebrate the launch of Flowerbomb Twist on the High Line earlier this week with Viktor & Rolf.

Now you can create your own personal Flowerbomb scent with the new layering perfume oils from Viktor & Rolf that lets you customize Flowerbomb according to your mood and how you want to smell. The concept is brilliant and simple: layer each Twist underneath the Eau de Parfum, gently massage the oil on your skin before a spritz of perfume to enhance different notes of Flowerbomb. The Twist collection consists of Rose, Jasmine and Musk. Rose Twist was my personal favourite of the collection - the fresh and floral notes made me feel so feminine and elegant. Which one is your favourite?
