Christmas Wishes

I always get quite nostalgic this time of year - wishing the world would slow down a bit and taking some time to really enjoy what the Festive Season is all about.

As my thoughts turn towards my trip to Paris in early January, my wish is that the Christmas decorations are still up and it snows.....

What do you hope to find under the Christmas Tree?

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...

Our centre tables are simply burgeoning with all our new Christmas stock.

New from Miller Harris is the delicious Tuberose body cream - a must for every girls Christmas stocking. Travel sets with Citron Citron - shower gel, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner - perfect!! Tangerine Vert has just been released as a candle - for all those citrus lovers!

Our little Christmas tree is decorated with vintage roman numerals - simple! Our newest offerings by Astier de Villatte - Books, pencils, perfumed erasers, Jerusalem candle, set of 3 ceramic candles (too cute) and the heavenly boxed incense.

Another view of our Astier de Villatte display.

The new fragrances by Miller Harris are truly divine - La Fumee and La Pluie - I love La Pluie as it is a wonderful exotic floral where La Fumee is warm and smoky. We have Miller Harris candle sets - one woody and one oriental and our favourite Fleur Oriental comes in a 615g version - the perfect hostess gift.

Just in for Christmas we have some hampers from Daylesford Provenders - full of goodies both sweet and savoury from all our favourite places - I love the rose petal jelly. Perfect as a gift for a family or that person who is difficult to buy for.

All your purchases are beautifully wrapped with our compliments ready to pop under the Christmas Tree. Don't forget our shopping nights on the 7th & 15th December.

Creed 1760

In 1760, in London, James Henry Creed founded the House of Creed. It rapidly became a favourite with the Court of England and Queen Victoria appointed Creed as an official supplier.

Shortly after the House of Creed was chosen by all the Royal courts of Europe; from Napoleon III, to Empress Eugenia, Francois-Joseph and Elizabeth of Austria-Hungary, and Queen Christina of Spain, Creed's creations were recognised for their quality, refinement and originality.

In 1854, under the direction of Empress Eugenia, the House of Creed moved to Paris and soon acquired notoriety. With a very selective clientele, Creed went on creating unique perfumes, masterpieces of creativity. More than two hundred exclusive perfumes, all original and hand-made, were created by the Creed family over the years.

Today the house of Creed is headed by Olivier Creed and his son Erwin.

We have 22 fragrances in store, so we are sure to include some of your favourites. We have also some of their divine candles just in time for Christmas.

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.

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.
