Discover #NOLIMITS with BYKATHRYN’s Petrolhead fragrance

beauty, Christmas gifting

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‚Äôt 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, ‚ÄúWhen 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‚Äôt get better than a professional racing driver.‚ÄĚ Katie added, ‚ÄúJo is very glamorous and¬†feminine of the track but ruthless behind the wheel of her Mini 7S.‚ÄĚ

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!

Valentine’s Day is nearly here and if you haven’t found the perfect gift yet – well, there’s no need to panic!

Here we have the four fragrances available in the travel compact refillable spray bottles that are cute in themselves!…¬†

Our fave was LIGHT & DARK Lively (green) £43.50, 70ml, Opening with top notes of citrus and warmed by spicy nutmeg, ginger, cardamom and pepper, this scent deepens as it settles on the skin creating a luxurious, shareable fragrance. Unisex too Рwe actually gave this to the men in our lives as it is similar to one of our fave scents they already wear. 

You also have¬†LIGHT & DARK Original (Gold) ¬£43.50, 70ml,¬†a heady blend of pepper, myrrh and incense. With hints of gardenia, jasmine and top notes of mandarin and grapefruit, this scent will capture anyone’s attention.

LIGHT & DARK Delightful (Pink) ¬£43.50, 70ml, is ¬†the newest addition to Leighton’s fragrance collection. Bursting with red fruits, this sensual scent smells so good you could almost eat it! Supported by the merest touch of lotus flower and mirabilis jasmine, the fragrance finishes off with a gentle trail of sweet musk and creamy vanilla.

Finally the set brings you another unisex scent –¬†LIGHT & DARK Desire ¬£43.50, 70ml, a sensual, mysterious, dark woody scent that is ideal for a romantic candle-lit dinner. Top notes of citrus balance with amber, moss and pepper creating a deep, sexy scent.

Bring the love into the light and let it dance in the dark by fulfilling that desire with Leighton Denny this Valentine’s day.

Be my valentine…¬†

Shopping for Valentine‚Äôs can be a momentus task, because not everyone wants chocolate and flowers these days, to be honest… I personally love things that you can keep, and that wont just die off or be eaten then are gone. Reminders I suppose of that little keepsake your loved one brought you… and maybe where you were at that point in your relationship!

We’ve taken a little look at Amazon Handmade, which we didn’t even realise existed! To see some of the little delights and cards they have, just a small little sample really of all of the delights on offer!

We love the cute cushion options from The Fox in the Attic, The Happy Cloud could fit in anywhere but if you’re a unicorn fan, get your hands on one of those! Happy Cloud Cushion by The Fox In The Attic, £22

If you like artwork, or typography, French Quote Oui Mon Cheri by Lovely Décor, £9.99, may be the gift for you. It’s a long lasting gift, that you can look at day in, day out! 

Now the couples gift… Get both of you a little gift, maybe not for your few months long relationship (you might scare them off ūüėõ ¬†– but fiance, or hubby / wifey – they‚Äôre also a perfect little wedding gift too!¬†Mr. & Mrs. Coffee Mug Set by Sweet Water D√©cor, ¬£25¬†
