Lavish

The previous week had a taste of sumptuousness since leather, diamonds and haute perfumerie was involved. The presentation of the whole Armani Prive perfume collection brought to light some treasures of the Mediterranean and rare scents of the East. Between fig, cedar and jasmine I opted for more heavy scents, like Ambre Soie and Myrrhe Imperiale, the ones that somehow I always end up wearing.

Yannis Sergakis has designed those fantastic rings you see below and I found a new personal favorite jeweler (saving money for the rose ring). Another fragrance set arrived at my door by Hermes, that evokes the freshness of early spring.

A fine soft leather jacket and pencil skirt by V Society is my latest obsession, I love the color and the texture. In this suit I feel capable of everything.

Manifesto

Right before Christmas holidays, the ladies and gents of the Yves-Saint Laurent cosmetics in Greece invited beauty editors and bloggers to write their own manifesto on an YSL paper, all revealed today (with heavy rain), on the name of the perfume “Manifesto” and the new advertising campaign with Jessica Chastain. There’s no picture of Jessica whatsoever, but you can enjoy us three girls in the gorgeous “Joie de vivre au Chateau” mansion up in Kifissia and our pieces.

fancy wish list

I was recently asked by missbloom.gr, among other girls, to present my Christmas essentials. Since my wardrobe palette is rather boring with lots of blacks and blues, I usually add some color with my accessories, mainly shoes and jewelry. Pointy shoes, crystals and some luxury goodies like my Serge Lutens perfume or a good facial day creme is what got on my list.
I now take it a step further and make a xmas wish list.

This Stella McCartney light blue shirt dress is on top of my wish list, together with a pair of Jil Sander color-block sling backs, that I instantly fell in love with when we first met in March at Raf Simon’s very last fashion show for the house.

I love luxury paper. I keep collecting personal stationary since the age of 6. I also love birds. Can I ask Santa for this Bird Box by Bernard Maisner

It includes post cards and statement cards with hand painted exotic birds *sigh* by Mr. Maisner himself.

Shourouk crystal necklace.

The finest make up of them all, Giorgio Armani’s Maestro miracle.

And a man pouch -I often prefer men’s clothes and accessories- from Lanvin.

And maybe for the new year I’ll try something new: Not Another Bill promises a gift every month in my mailbox!

amouage

i’m very strict and particular when it comes to perfumes, use the same one for years and haven’t been very willing to change it.
‘Epic’ and ‘Lyric’ are Amouage latest fragrances and i declare enamorada with the first one- but with the woody oriental version for men (well, i’m very keen on unisex parfumerie) . you cannot say it’s an easy perfume and that’s probably why it penetrates my head..

Behind every Amouage creation there’s a mystical story, beautifully narrated in videos: Epic and Lyric


better late than never

A very late christmas present arrived last week, together with an amazing card full of wishes, from Chanel press office in Paris. Though I’m not a  Chanel perfumerie fan,  this 200ml bottle of Beige put a wide smile on my face. It smells so fresh so clean and it looks great in my bedroom.

Would it be a blasphemy if i sprayed it on my sheets every night before i sleep??
