New offerings from Keiko Mecheri

One of my favourite perfume houses has released 3 new fragrances which we will be launching at the 'Red Hot Lips' appeal on Thursday 4th August - or you can have a sneak preview - just ask!!

Camellia is a delicate and feminine white floral. This lovely scent evokes the exquisite Japanese camellia, with it's enchanting arrangement of pink petals and glossy green leaves. Camellia opens with a blend of white tea and Ume plum. Then it blooms into a heady profusion of petals - camellia and honeyed magnolia. Soft hints of wood and amber round out the scent. A graceful rendition of a magical flower.
Paradise Lost was inspired by the dreamy beaches of Goa in India filled with the gloriously free spirited perpetual travellers who follow the sun. It is a beautifully crafted rich Citrus fragrance which opens with lime and bergamot, musk and the intoxicating blend of jasmine, tuberose and vanilla. The result is a tropical twist on eau de cologne - bright, transparent and joyful. I am wearing this fragrance today, it is delicious and makes me long for summer.
Imagine you have been transported to a tropical island in the South Seas, golden beaches, turquoise skies and a profusion of white flowers in full bloom. This flirtatious potion features a double dose of gardenia by blending traditional gardenia with tiare flowers (known as Tahitian gardenia). Heady tuberose follows with a radiant jasmine on a base of almond, creamy vanilla and ambery benzoin. This is a truly glamourous scent suitable for mermaids and sirens, as well as us mere mortals.

This delicious offering come as 75ml Eau de Parfums and are priced at $225.

The Essence of Frapin

1697 has just arrived in store - very exciting.

In the year 1697 the Frapin family were granted nobility by Louis XIV. The monarch was passionate about beauty, women, love.... rapturous festivities, enchanting balls, voluptuous colours and scents marked his reign. P Frapin and Cie called on celebrated perfumeur Bertrand Duchaufour to create a fragrance that reflects this enchanting period in history.

The fragrance is made up of the most precious ingredients. Absolutes of rum, cassie flower, cistus, tonka bean and rose. The first wafts of rum are heightened by davana oil and become more pronounced as the leather and notes of cognac come in to play. Spiced floral heart notes of hawthorn and jasmine merge with cinnamon, dried fruits and rose. The base notes linger, combining an amber based theme with musk and wood essences softened by vanilla. A smooth and bewitching scent.

1697 is a Limited Edition numbered from 1 to 1697. The absolu de parfum is a 50ml flacon and priced at $337. We have been lucky to secure just a few bottles.

Top 5 Winter Fragrances 2011

Peony's top Winter fragrances for this year are:

Keiko Mecheri's 'Cuir Cordoba' - A classical Dry Wood - A delicious combination of Suede, Aubepine, Butter Iris, Black Violet, Cedarwood, Sandalwood and Benzoin. Available in Keiko's signature black bottle in a 75ml Eau de Parfum.

Miller Harris's 'Fleur Oriental' - A classic Oriental created for those winter days when you want to envelop your fragrance. Fleur Oriental combines rich and sensual notes of amber, vanilla and musk to create a deep and opulent base. This heady and sensual blend is further heightened by fresh orange blossom, heliotrope, spicy carnation and Turkish rose. Available in a 100ml Eau de Toilette and Eau de Parfum.

The Different Company's 'Oriental Lounge' - A crisp green Woody Oriental - a modern interpretation of the classic Oriental fragrance, a perfect day time perfume. An interesting combination of notes: Leaves of Caloupile, Bergamot, Soft Pepper, Tonka Bean, Labdanum, Red Rose, Amber and Satin Wood. Available in a 50ml signature bottle.

Robert Piguet's 'Calypso' - a rich Soft Oriental - a sweet and seductive perfume reminiscent of Agent Provocateur with more of a whisper than a shout. Beautifully balanced notes of Mandarin, Geranium, Iris, Bulgarian Rose, Patchouli and Suede. Available in a 50ml and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

Amouage 'Memoir' - A Classical Wood fragrance - my husband is wearing this fragrance at the moment and it is to die for, so I am a little biased here. It is a complex fragrance but not heavy, beautifully composed and wonderfully wearable by women and men alike. The leather note is quite dominant but notes include: Mandarin, Absinthe, Jasmine, Orange Blossom, Clove, Frankincense, Leather, Oakmoss and Musk. Presented as always in the handmade box in a 50ml Eau de Parfum.

I hope you have an opportunity to come in and try one of our winter fragrance suggestions.

Miller Harris London New Products

I just love Miller Harris. I love their packaging and their new products are just delicious.
We have introduced the hand wash and hand lotion in Citron Citron and Terre de Bois. No harsh chemicals here, a gentle coconut derived cleansing agent and calendula soften the skin and the hand lotion is specifically formulated with sweet almond, jojoba oils and aloe leaf juice to nourish those dry hands. They are priced at $45 each.
The MH Classic collection is now available in an Eau de Parfum. So your Coeur de Fleur, Terre de Bois, Citron Citron and my favourite Fleur Oriental will last a lot longer on your skin. The 100ml EDP is priced at $190. MH will be discontinuing the Eau de Toilette so if you prefer your MH fragrance as an EDT then be quick as we don't have many available.
These petite soaps are perfect for those who like their soaps compact as they are easy to handle - so no more dropping the soap in the shower. Priced at $20 each they make wonderful gifts.

A little bit of Paris in Melbourne

I had a little pilgrimage into the CBD today as I hadn't been there for quite some time. I went to visit a few stores I had unearthed on my internet travels. I started at the Little Cupcake store in Degraves Street, cute yummy cupcakes - a must try for all of you who love cupcakes. But the highlight of my trip was discovering La Belle Miette at 30 Hardware Lane, Melbourne. The macarons looked fabulous, the store reminiscent of Laduree in Paris. I walked in and said could I have one of everything!! Packed in the most divine box by very friendly staff they managed to stay uneaten all the way home.
I am happy to say they taste divine!! and I don't have to wait until my next visit to Paris to buy macarons.

I just wish they would open a store next to me in Auburn Village!!
