Peony loves Dad

Don't forget that it's Father's Day this coming Sunday 4th September. We have some beautiful items that he is going to love.

Acqua di Parma do a wonderful shaving range and we have some of their shaving sets which come in a wonderful monogrammed wet pack - perfect!
These beautiful shaving brushes from Acca Kappa are sure to impress. They are made from the finest badger hair encased in makassar wood. The range also includes a hair brush and clothes brush.

We have also introduced the Moroccan Neroli shaving duet from Aesop. My husband uses this and loves it.

There are lots of Peony ideas for that special father and of course we love wrapping all your gifts with our compliments.

Toothpaste fit for a King!

I had to have this for the store. I love the image above, now I have to find an original toothpaste container in my never ending search for all things vintage.

This toothpaste and mouthwash was amazingly invented in 1755 by Dr. Julien Botot for King Louis XV of France. The natural formula works to draw extra blood to the gum line. Botot toothpaste is recognised by the Royal Society of Medicine as a superior natural product! True to its original formulation, Botot remains a best seller the world over.
The mouthwash contains a natural gillyflower (clove family) base. The mouthwash warms the gum line and as it is an exilir you only need a few drops in a glass of warm water and gargle to do the trick. There are no artificial flavours or colours and follows the original formula.
The toothpaste is $20 for a 75ml tube and the mouthwash is $35 for 150ml.

We are increasing our range of male grooming products in time for Father's Day so I will be introducing you to all our new lines over the next few weeks.

L'Heure du Thé

Peony is proud to have been invited to participate in a French Themed High Tea to support the National Breast Cancer Foundation. The event will be held in the luxurious ballroom at the Langham Hotel in Melbourne.

Each guest will be treated to a High Tea, beauty salon treatments, a shopping and sampling emporium of French Design, pampering products and lifestyle collections. Each attendee will receive a luxurious sample bag of French themed treats and products valued at over $300.

Tickets are priced at $55 and I think it would be the perfect occasion to spend with a girlfriend or your mum. To purchase tickets please click on the following link: LeStyle to book.

I am really looking forward to the event - we will be showcasing a range of perfumes favoured by Napoleon and Josephine.

Jardin sur le Toit

Hermes have launched a fourth fragrance in their Jardin range - 'Jardin sur le Toit', the translation being Garden on the roof. If you manage to get hold of the BBC series 'Perfume' there is a segment where Jean Claude Ellena (the perfumeur) is going through the creative process and it is facinating to go behind the scenes. There actually is a garden on the roof of the Hermes boutique in Paris - see picture below.
The fragrance is a perfectly balanced Crisp Floral with Rose at its heart. The structure of the fragrance opens with apple and pear notes with middle notes of magnolia and rose. The dry down of green herbs gives this fragrance that wonderful transparency.

This beautiful composition comes in a 50ml and 100ml eau de toilette and is priced at $115 and $160 respectively.
