A fast favourite amongst the insider set, Hermés’ new Rouge Hermés collection is dedicated to the beauty of the lips. With a velvet-soft finish and ultra-chic refillable case designed by Pierre Hardy you can understand why. Comfortable and hydrating, this matte lipstick works with a second-skin effect, releasing highly concentrated, long-lasting colour pigments in a single application.

First created in 1947 in the wake of the Second World War, Miss Dior has always represented a reawakening to beauty. Now, in a world remerging from the pandemic, the scent has reinvented itself once again. Synonymous with the floral notes of nature, the new Miss Dior draws on Centifolia Rose and Dior’s signature Lily-of-the-Valley, for a fresh and inspired fragrance that’s elevated by a blend of sandalwood and spice. Elegant and enchanting, it’s the kind of fragrance that effortlessly captures moments in time; a perfect dose of optimism guaranteed to put a spring in your step.
After months of hibernation and dry winter weather, spring always feels like the right time to let your hair down. If your locks are feeling less than lush, then look to Sisley’s Hair Rituel The Cream. Formulated with nourishing botanical oils. The Cream draws on Sisley’s 230 Complex, a thermoactive technology that helps the appearance of hair by closing scales and filling in breaks. Fuller, more beautiful hair awaits.
The perfect fragrance for the artist, actor, trailblazer and philanthropist Miley Cyrus, consider Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia EDP a new signature for free spirits. Built around the Gardenia flower, this just-landed fragrance fuses pear blossom, jasmine and gardenia with brown sugar and patchouli for a total escape. Think of it as joy in a bottle; the ultimate fragrance to follow you through a season of possibility.
