LipsNspritz of the … er … Fortnight.

I hate being ill, and I really hate being ill to the extent that it interferes with my posting schedule.  Nonetheless, here’s a double-dose (whether you wanted it or not, frankly) of my weekly diary of lipstick and perfume-wearing.  The above pic is from the week ending 22/11/15. Monday was Etat Libre d’Orange Like This, alongside Chantecaille Lip Chic in Wild Rose.  Like This is […]

LipsNspritz of the week 08.11.15

 I ended up having a week of musk, it wasn’t planned, but after wearing The Body Shop White Musk layered up with Serge Lutens Clair de Musc (a combination I’d planned to wear for my wedding, till I realised I needed something with a little more oomph!), I realised that I wanted to wear more of it. I wore these with ByTerry lipstick in Cherry […]

I want to: Smell Like a Hug …

 For all that I love my avant garde niche perfumes (and I do), there are days when all you want to do is smell loveable, the olfactory equivalent of a quick snuggle on the sofa.  For those days, all you need is musk, for musk is the scent of skin and so these are the products I pick: I’m a big fan of layering my […]

I’m A Collector: Serge Lutens

I love how they look like a chemistry set  Turns out I’ve accidentally been a “niche” perfume collector for years now.  An entire lifetime ago, a tiny collection of six (or it may have been eight) fragrances appeared in my local Debenhams, and I was shocked and appalled to discover that they cost a whopping £40 each.  Naturally, I ended up buying two. I’d never […]

The Oddest Lipstick in my Collection

 This little monolith looks fairly innocuous, no? Well, it’s one of the oddest, and most expensive, makeup products I own.  It’s actually a Serge Lutens Water Lip Colour, and when it turned up in a goody bag at a Serge Lutens fragrance launch, I was about as excited as I could be.  I thought there were only two shades, Chardon, a red, and Safrane, an […]

Project Perfume – Serge Lutens

If you’re in Paris, and if you’re at all interested in perfume, then there’s one pilgrimage that you have to make, and that is to worship – just a little bit – at the shrine of Serge Lutens, which you can find at Palais Royal, just behind the Louvre.  It’s a stunning store, as different as different can be from the Caron store I showed […]

Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau

Serge Lutens, how much do I love thee?  The first super-expensive bottle of perfume I ever bought for myself (at a whopping £45, back at the time when most “expensive” perfumes cost £18-25 depending on precisely how “fancy” you wanted to smell) was a bottle of Serge Lutens Sa Majeste La Rose. This was shortly followed by a bottle of A La Nuit, neither of […]
