In love with the Bloomsbury set

I loved Jo Malone’s limited edition for this Spring, as it combines beauty with art.
Inspired by the carefreeness and the free spirit of the artists that consisted the Bloomsbury Set, this collection of scents captures the intoxicating essence of the unconventional life in the artists’ legendary country house in Sussex. The lily pond at dawn, bold blue hyacinth, absinthe afternoons and golden linseed on paint-stained hands. And look at that packaging. Definitely something I would like to have on my boudoir.

Things that make me dream

New in my boudoir and in my heart.

The 7-Coloured Powder Illuminator by Shiseido is a blush, a highlighter and a contouring palette all
in one -and look how pretty it is ?
The new Line Interception Duo by La Prairie is a miracle in a box: a Day & Night Cream Duo which
offers a botox effect in just two weeks and that -trust me- worth all its money.
And here’s a Gucci touch: The new Gucci Guilty Absolute perfume might be a men’s perfume but it includes a whimsical cocktail of all my favourite notes such as Leatherwood, Vetiver and Patchouli
so appealing I instantly fell for it.

Good girl VS Bad girl

Can you tell the real shoe?
The shoe on the bottom is the Carolina Herrera “Good Girl” fragrance. The shoe on the top is my favourite satin Dior sandals with pink metallic band. And I can wear both at the same time. Heels for life!

Complementing the unique White Amaryllis signature of Dolce & Gabbana, “Dolce Rosa Excelsa” joins the Dolce Garden.

Baruti extraits de parfum

“This is what my dreams smell like
I make personal and immediate perfumes
Deceptively playful
Rooted in the unconscious
Perplexing the senses
Like kaleidoscopic explosions of beauty
They can blow you away”. 
Spyros Drossopoulos

They are greek and they are the very first premium extraits de parfum.  
Perfumer Spyros Drossopoulos, a lover of scents from a very young age, believes that one’s aroma has a special effect on how one is perceived. “Baruti” is his series of deluxe perfumes, with depth and sentiment.  “Indigo” emulates the radiating blue summer skies with notes of mastic oil from Chios, hyacinth, rose from Greece, sandalwood, nooud and amber, while “Melkmeisje”, inspired by Johannes Vermeer’s  famous painting “The milkmaid” is a very dutch affair, with notes of pear, lilac, Linden blossom, honey, orris root, vanilla, vetiver, sandalwood and musk. “Chai” brings in mind a delicious Indian masala chai, with notes of cinnamon, cloves, ginger, cardamom, pepper, black tea steamed tea and leather.
If you’re a scent junkie like myself you may lose track of time discovering all the Baruti perfumes at
Eleni Marneri Gallery.
