We ♥ JUICY COUTURE 

I AM JUICY COUTURE is for the girl who lives and breathes Juicy Couture and always wants more. She’s bold and fearless with an individual spirit and style that makes a statement to the world.

I AM JUICY COUTURE evokes the glamorous rebel in every Juicy girl. She daringly proclaims exactly who she is not in order to declare who she is. She’s a confident and unabashed trend-setter with a casual and luxurious sense of style. Never a wallflower, she has a dynamic personality that fascinates and enthralls, and a captivating femininity that creates a sensation wherever she goes.

The fragrance combines ripe, juicy fruits to open this bold and alluring scent before blending a seductive mixture of Gardenia and Cashmere Woods.

This scent is a perfect stocking filler this Christmas for everyone! (we love the bottle design, and would love to see this on our dressing table!) The bottle borrows from the elements we love most about Viva La Juicy, including its classic decanter shaped bottle. Through a design that is literally turned upside down, the bottle presents a sophisticated and modern silhouette. This bold statement is complimented by signature feminine touches on the cap ‚Äď Juicy Couture‚Äôs iconic jewelry toggle and chain detail.The striking I AM JUICY COUTURE bottle is a must-have for the girl who embodies chic and glamorous rebellion.

I am Juicy Couture, 100ml £69, 50ml £50, 30ml £37. Available nationwide, in Boots & other stores!

Bronnley use hand crafted methods to blend nature’s finest ingredients into enchanting collections that captivate your senses. The NEW Pink Peony and Rhubarb collection is no exception, making it a beautiful floral addition to the much-loved classic Bronnley bath and body products.

As beautiful in bud as when in bloom, the peony in bloom performs a botanical ballet, as layers of translucent petals gracefully unfold. Its exquisite scent soulfully transitions from fresh and green to a captivating floral bouquet. Selecting one of nature’s grandest flowers and enriching its familiar and classic aroma with a twist of rhubarb to create an intriguing, modern scent.

In a tantalising opening, the principle peony note is freshened with the captivating aroma of red apple’s crunchy skin and sweet flesh, blended with rhubarb leaves that gently fan jasmine, gardenia and rose.

Deeper in the heart of the scent, these scattered tones of precious petals are layered with the intriguing aroma of fruity rhubarb stems, lightly spiced with bright, clove-like and peppery nuances. While as a grand finale, of carnation and the addition of sparkling white musk adds depth, elegance and lasting pleasure.

The contemporary and modern floral character of Pink Peony and Rhubarb is magnificently represented in the packaging, beautifully illustrated by award-winning British botanical artist Helen Campbell.

This makes it the perfect scent to gift to someone you love this Christmas, a perfect dressing table piece and everyday scent.

Gucci Guilty: a new dawn, a new chapter.

Behind the Gucci revolution, a new vision. Eclectic, contemporary, romantic‚ÄĒcreative director Alessandro Michele is telling a different story about the brand. Celebrating individuality, the allure of the undefined, Gucci maps an emancipated sexuality. Designed with passion and authenticity, the House‚Äôs attitude is a feeling of freedom. Beginning on the runway, this story has flourished in every piece of the brand, and now it transforms Gucci fragrances.

Inimitable, unapologetic, the generation that inspires Alessandro Michele is characterized by a celebrative anarchy. They don’t believe in conformity, submitting to labels or to gender rules, breaking free from common social boundaries. They express themselves however they want, with whomever they want and passionately explore whatever they want. They are hedonistic: indulge in life’s pleasures, experiment and enjoy without the feeling of guilt. This modern declaration of self-expression and sexuality ignites the new chapter of Gucci Guilty. It sparks the campaign’s powerful statement: #GuiltyNotGuilty.

Under the #GuiltyNotGuilty light, the Gucci Guilty fragrances embody the new edge of the brand. They signify freedom, by sharing traditional male and female fragrance ingredients. In both scents, pink pepper, a warm, sweet peppery berry incites excitement while Patchouli, a complex green, woody and earthy note creates a sense of mystery.

The Reviews…

We thoroughly enjoyed testing out the for him and for her fragrances and personally between us, could NOT stop wearing them, day and night this is a fragrance to stick by and we’ll be heading out for more! 

Gucci Guilty for Her‚Äôs signature note, the intimate and magical Lilac flower, is laced with Amber, known for its warmth and grace with a powerful lasting impression. This is fragrance created for a libertine ‚ÄĒ unapologetic of her impact.

Gucci Guilty for Him opens with invigorating Lemon and striking Lavender, a note known to seduce. At the heart, floral, sensual Orange Blossom blurs the concept of traditional masculine and feminine notes heightening the allure to whomever is captured by this intoxicating fragrance.

Presenting Gucci Guilty, signature scents for hedonists, for libertines and for those who are truly free. #GuiltyNotGuilty
