A GREAT ESCAPE
Originally launched in 1927 and named after the Vuitton family’s country estate, Heures d’Absence is the brand-new scent from Louis Vuitton. Completely recreated by master perfumer Jacques Cavallier- Belletrud — the original formula was lost after just 300 bottles of the scent had been made — this gorgeous floral fragrance includes jasmine, rose, and mimosa. In spirit, it’s all about moments of grace filled with quiet daydreams.
SMELLS LIKE COSTA RICA
Escape to Costa Rica with the new sweet, fruity floral scent from Berdoues Collection Grands Crus. Taking its inspiration from Costa Rica’s indigenous flower, the guaria morada, notes of orange, amyris, and patchouli give it a deliciously endearing sweet scent that you can actually wear all day without feeling overwhelmed. Available at selected Truworths and Foschini stores
LET’S GET LIFTED
Step aside lightweight formulas — we’re eyeing some pretty luxurious, rich textures to take with us into the autumn/winter season. The Chanel Le Lift range comes rebooted with a crème and crème yeux containing botanical alfalfa concentrate derived using biotechnology. The super-active botanicals, jampacked into silky, melt-in-your-skin textures, will have your eye area and skin looking more luminous, lifted, smoother, and firmer with every application.
