DIOR YOUR XMAS STOCKINGS
We would love our stockings to be stuffed with diamonds and rubies, but we’ll gladly settle for Dior’s new Precious Rocks makeup collection, filled with glittery, saturated, jewel tones, inspired by gems such as rubies, emeralds, and amethysts. These sparkling additions make for perfect gifts, with their gilded, bauble-shaped packaging and must-have prism palettes.
Arab perfumery and Silician summers come together in this luxurious treat to add to your oriental fragrance wardrobe. Dolce & Gabbana Velvet Amber Sun, 150ml, R5 080, is an ode to amber. It opens with spicy notes of coriander seeds, ylang tahiti, and cistus labdanum, and settles onto the skin with the warmth of the day into notes of vanilla absolute, patchouli heart, Australian sandalwood essence, and white musk.
There are a few things that signal that the holidays are here: a steaming cup of glühwein, the scent of spicy fruit cake, or a sparkling citrus cocktail. Add more to your sensorial holiday triggers with the limited-edition Jo Malone Orange Bitters Cologne, 100ml, R1 890, a decadent combination of sweet orange, ripe mandarin, bitter orange, sandalwood, and amber that is designed to give you all the Christmas cheer. Simply spritz lightly over skin.
