ESCAPE WITH CHLOÉ

Chloé invites us to come on a journey and indulge in the brand’s f ree-spirited ways with the introduction of the Nomade fragrance pillar. It boasts a new “O” bottle shape — inspired by the fashion house’s most iconic bag design, the Drew Bag — and perfumer Quentin Bisch captures the effortless and contagious spirit of the Chloé woman with notes of oak moss, Mirabella plum, and freesia that allude to a sense of nature and the great outdoors.

ROSE LUXURY

Five hundred rose petals may seem extravagant, but not for Dior when it came to creating the house’s lightweight cushion foundation. The formula combines Dior’s signature ingredient – the Rose de Granville, known for its resilience – with oils; and its cushion compact dispenses a super-aerated formula to create creamy, buildable, and luminous coverage that feels like second skin.

HYDRA BEAUTY

Put Chanel’s Hydra Beauty range to the test this winter: we’re pretty sure you won’t be disappointed. Two new products have been added to the luxurious, hydrating skincare line inspired by Mademoiselle Chanel’s favourite flower, the Camelia. The jelly-like formula of the liquid essence seems to burst on the skin like water, activating the hydrating micro-droplets, while the lightweight, overnight mask saturates the skin with zinc, copper, and magnesium for intense moisture.
