Like all things Versace, this fragrance was created for the ever so sophisticated woman, taking you from the hum-drum of the office, to the yay of a glamorous night out on the town, and everything in-between.
Released in 2000 by ‘nose’ Christine Nagel, it has top notes of frangipani blossoms, jasmine and bergamot flowers, mid notes of juicy plum and raspberry and is sensually finished with base notes of musk and grey amber. All that blah means, is this is one deliciously bold, fruity, floral fragrance that will drive men to distraction. OK, maybe not, but for sure, you’ll smell delicious.
So, to surmise, here, Versace have the perfect fusion of fashion and fragrance that any woman needs. God knows, it’s cheaper than any of the dresses!
Are you stylish? Are you a dog lover? This one is for you.
Just like their iconic range of handbags, the Radley watch collection is a nod to being British. This watch has a beautiful cream leather strap and a 32mm gold plated stainless steel case, a round face, large cream dial with Radley, the cute little Scotty dog in his basket in the centre. The hour markers are large and golden in colour, it has quartz movement and – crucially for us holiday lovers, water resistant to 30m.
And if not for you, this watch makes for a perfect gift for the lady in your life, coming in a smart Radley presentation box. But do remember, a dog is not just for Christmas – it’s for every day! And not only does it look cute, you never have to clear up its mess! Get involved.
Who’s the boss? You’re the boss. OK whether you are, or are not – you can certainly look the part with this Hugo Boss Orange mens stainless steel watch.
With masculine touches like a black silicon and orange leather strap, its large, sleek stainless steel case, black dial (with Japanese quartz movement) and bold orange hour markers – this is a watch that means business. Or pleasure actually, as it’s water resistant to 30m.
Now I know it’s classified as a man’s watch but if you, like me, are partial to a giant piece of stylish wrist candy – this is one for us ladies too.
And if you are feeling generous and want to buy this for someone who has been really, really nice to you – it comes in a super posh presentation case, that looks, well, boss.
So whether you’re ‘off duty boss’, or ‘on duty boss’, or not even a boss – look the part at all times with this standout timepiece.
In a stylish flacon, shaped like a cocktail shaker, this 75ml EDT is the perfect mixer of passion and cool. Yes, we will do this with cocktail references just to stir things up a bit.
Created by Alain Astori and Beatrice Piquet (two highly acclaimed ‘noses’ in the fragrance biz) in 1999, it features zest(y) citrus top notes (lime, pink grapefruit), a twist of warm spicy middle notes (mahogany, cypress, cardamom) and a measure of aromatic base notes (patchouli, vetiver, and vanilla).
Straight-up, what that all means, is this infusion smells YUMMY and ensures any wearer rocks. OK, maybe not – but he will certainly smell fresh and certainly not dirty.
And how neat to be able to buy this with your on-board discount? If you don’t go for it – I’ll be quite shaken.
