Discover #NOLIMITS with BYKATHRYN’s Petrolhead fragrance

PETROLHEAD is the perfect vibe for women who set no limits by seeking adrenaline and high octane excitement, whilst retaining an air of femininity and glamour. They are fun and fearless, pushing the boundaries whenever possible, knowing their own minds and not conforming to stereotypes.

Although you don’t have to be a car fanatic to love PETROLHEAD, – Mini 7S Class racing driver Jo Polley is the new brand ambassador for the fragrance. Founder and Managing Director of BYKATHRYN, Katie Forman said, “When I first met Jo, I knew immediately she was the perfect person to be the face of PETROLHEAD. We needed someone who exuded the vibe and you can’t get better than a professional racing driver.” Katie added, “Jo is very glamorous and feminine of the track but ruthless behind the wheel of her Mini 7S.”

PETROLHEAD Opens with a blend of citruses in the top notes, followed with a heart of conifers and jasmine, underpinned by spicy balsamic notes giving a warm almost oriental vibe. We think it’s a perfect summer fragrance for those who like a strong scent that eludes confidence and strength!

PETROLHEAD Perfume, RRP £35 (15ml), For more information or to purchase PETROLHEAD please visit www.bykathryn.ltd

Elderflower fizz is a light and clean fragrance great for every single room! I love describe the fragrance as… As the rain gives way to bright sunshine, and the air is filled with the creamy vapour of lacy elderflowers, it is time to embrace the rejuvenating spirit of summer with this delightful presse, blending luscious fruits and watery cucumber, with delicate floral interludes. This vibrant fruity accord has opening notes of apple & cucumber, leading to a heart of lemony elderflowers and jasmine to create a beautiful floral freshness.

(It truly is delightful – and we have not only the home scents but some of the cosmetic beauty range too… unfortunately not all of them… YET!)

Father’s Day edit: Treat your papa to a smooth whiskey tipple

Treat your papa this #father’s day… to this smooth citrusy 13 year old Old Pulteney Malt whiskey or to the #toffee #butterscotch flavours of a #10yearold Speyburn Whisky…

Is it a taste of Scotland your dad fancies? Sort this with a bottle of Old Pulteney, a Single Malt Scotch whisky that delivers a true reflection of its maritime heritage in Wick. Bursting with the power and subtlety of the sea, Old Pulteney’s core collection offers a range of carefully developed expressions, appealing to all tastes and budgets.

This 12 year old is matured wholly in air-dried, hand-selected ex-bourbon casks. It offers a smooth medium-bodied whisky boasting a sweet long-lasting finish. With its citrus and salty back notes, pair this whisky with some homemade fudge for a wonderful gift for any man.

 

RRP: £32 (70cl)

Alternatively celebrate with Speyburn, a multi award-winning selection of Single Malt Scotch whiskies, crafted from the purest of water, deep in the heart of Speyside. Since 1897, Speyburn remains the only distillery to use the water from Granty Burn – a stream flowing with remarkably soft and clear spring water and a major tributary of the River Spey. The outstanding natural environment has resulted in an authentic and quality Core Collection boasting everything you want from a Single Malt Scotch Whisky.
