The Scents of Summer
This season we have selected 2 beautiful summer scents to match your mood.
Love the Way You Feel by Kilian is where sweet meets sensual. A warm, exotic scent, it has repurposed Monoï Oil to pay tribute to the beauty of beachside bodies. This fragrance is the perfect complement to a gorgeous tan and muscles in all the right places. It comes in a chic white bottle, decorated with a vibrant brush stroke and sliver cap and nameplate.
Chinotto di Liguria from Acqua di Parma’s new Blu Mediterraneo collection unmistakably captures the spirit of the sea. The rare Chinotto fruit weaves magic about your neck – even the briefest encounter with its bittersweet notes transports you to a paradise where sunlight tickles the waves. Mandarine, Jasmine and Cardamom combine in a gentle breeze, while musk and patchouli bring warmth and tranquility. It’s a fragrance reminiscent of an early morning stroll along the rocky coastlines of western Liguria.
A Bonus for the Lips
The Hydra Volume Lip Masque by Soleil Toujours protects, plumps and hydrates the lips! Their 100% mineral SPF 15 provides superior broad spectrum UV protection, while their LiPlump formula stimulates collagen, diminishes wrinkles and fills in lines with Maxi Lip Complex (tri-peptide). With six different colors inspired by their global travel, mix and match with all your favorite summer outfits.
