Shine in the light, bask in the dark

Valentine’s Day is nearly here and if you haven’t found the perfect gift yet – well, there’s no need to panic! The LIGHT & DARK collection by fragrance maverick Leighton Denny MBE fulfils anyone’s desires with four unique and intoxicating fragrance experiences that take you from day to night, and the best bit?…They’ll think of you every time they wear it! 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 – we 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.

The LIGHT & DARK collection retails for £43.50, 70ml. LIGHT & DARK fragrance minis retail for £9.50, 5ml.

Go for Gold this Valentine’s

Valentine’s Day is the day traditionally known for chocolate and flowers, as well as everything in between, so why not treat yourself and your loved one to that special box of chocolate, from Prestat, chocolatiers of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Prestat’s quintessential Mints and their Rose and Violet Crèmes were Her Majesty The Queen Mother’s favourite chocolates. Both The Queen Mother and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II granted Prestat a Royal Warrant and Prestat chocolates continue to be served at every major state banquet!

A pretty gold heart shaped box adorned in hearts and swirls

sets the tone perfectly for a passionate affair, stuffed full of rich and luxury truffles, that are delicately flavoured with

the softest sweet caramel and a tiny, but all-important, pinch of sea salt, these are THE treat for you; and are without doubt unforgettable. The magical chemistry of the sweet and salt sensation provided by each handmade truffle mirrors the alchemy of love itself.

The chocolate for your Queen or King, Gold Heart Box (Sea Salt Caramel Truffles) 200g, £19.50,
